Facility Maintenance & Contractors Turn “Green” with Non Slip Floor Coating

Share Article

Arizona distributor Eco Safety Products providing “green” safety coating alternatives to help facilities and contractors increase safety, while reducing costly installation time.

Installation of safety coatings are nothing new to facilities and contractors, but having a safety coating that meets all environmental standards, allows faster installations, and provides a durable non abrasive non slip surface, is. Facilities are increasingly adding non slip surfaces to a variety of substrates in areas where slip injuries are most likely to occur. Common surfaces are work areas, handicap ramps, entryways, loading docks, stairways, boat docks, vehicle steps-beds-ramps, machinery, service bays, and walking surfaces of all types.

Traditional non slip coatings contain flammable ingredients, strong odor, abrasive aggregate such as sand or aluminum oxide, and becomes brittle over time. The long limiting curing stages and lingering odor of each coat also add too the many lists of the challenges for the installer and end-user. To provide a better solution that overcomes these challenges, Eco-Safety Products has been successful in providing solutions for these specialty applications. “We are definitely seeing an increase of “green building” conscious applicators.” states John Bennett, President, Eco-Safety Products.

These innovative single component non slip coatings are made of cross-linked acrylic urethane co-polymer, making them extremely weather, wear, and impact resistant. They are available in 19 standard colors. Applications are unlimited from marine to commercial or industrial applications. They contain zero VOC’s, are non-flammable and virtually odorless providing safe application, transport and storage. These coatings may be roller, spray, or trowel applied. The inherent formulations of all coatings are chemical, abrasion, U.V., and wear resistant. They can be used on a variety of substrates such as concrete, metal, wood, and fiberglass. There are special formulations for aqueous or submerged applications, and a more flexible and pliable formulation for wood or fiberglass applications. Each product formulation is available with recycled rubber aggregate which provides a non abrasive, easy to clean non slip surface texture. These coatings are applied in two coats yielding a 40-50 dry mil. providing outstanding adhesion and durability. The dry time between coats is usually less than 60 minutes and light pedestrian use is typically available within 12 hours. A hard cure is within 24 hours.

As with any coating application, the proper surface preparation and primer coat are imperative for maximum performance. Special primers are available which increases adhesion while providing a sealer-primer function for concrete surfaces to help prevent moisture vapor impacts. “These coatings have been extremely versatile and effective. We continue to hear innovative solutions and application benefits from facilities and contractors across the country. Not to mention costs savings and convenience. We have yet to hear a single negative comment. Knock on wood.” adds John Bennett. For more information visit http://www.eco-safety.com
