Why Use Safetrax?

TH604 (Al/Al2O3) is a ceramic oxide core wire composed of aluminum and up to 46% by volume of ceramic oxides. This is a “patented” process, which allows for a high percentage of ceramic within an aluminum matrix.

The purpose of this wire is to provide a wear resistant surface to aluminum, cast/ductile iron, stainless steel, and steel that is long lasting and protects against corrosion while maintaining an average coefficient of friction of 1.1.

Advantages of Non-skid Coating:

  • Extended Life - Estimated at 10 yrs per NRL studies
  • Dual Duty Coating - Offering corrosion protection and non-skid properties.
  • Significant weight reduction - .125 - .50 lbs per sq.ft.(45% less than traditional nonskid)
  • Resistant to oils, fuels and salt water
  • Estimated Cost Savings Annually per boat over traditional nonskid
  • Zero Cure Time
  • Zero VOCs
  • Can be Applied Manually or by Robot
  • Has Surpassed all NAVY/NAVSEA testing requirements - MIL PRF- 24667

Wear-Resistant Uses:

  • Anti-slip coatings for pedestrian traffic and personnel safety on boat decks, flooring, steps, ladders, walkways, scaffolding, etc. Particularly steel and aluminum substrates subject to corrosion.
  • Anti-skid coatings for car/truck ramps, forklift loading ramps, aircraft landing areas, or any application requiring both nonskid and corrosion protection.
  • To control corrosion, wear, abrasion, and impact. When applied to a steel substrate this material will provide corrosion protection and wear resistance properties. It provides equal corrosion protection as that of pure aluminum and wear resistance far superior to that of any material presently known to have both these unique properties. Application environment could include river flow, water slurry, wind blown sand, tidal flows etc.
