28E ARCTEC Non-Slip Coating
New Durable Non-slip Coating.
Applied through our Arc spray system, 28E ARCTEC is a new non slip coating ideal for use on steel floors, decks, stairs and panels across diverse industries, from train steps to oil platforms.
Untreated these steel surfaces can become very slippery, especially in wet conditions, and are prone to corrosion. To ensure safe walking and industrial operating conditions, vital to personal safety and corporate productivity, 28E ARCTEC coating provides a durable non-slip anti-corrosion coating.
Traditionally, steel structures are hot dip galvanised, or painted, to protect against corrosion. The disadvantage of hot dip galvanising is that the surface can become slippery and it does not easily accept paint without the need for special primers. Painting this type of surface, which is sometimes applied with grit, also has its disadvantages. The surfaces can degrade quickly in heavy use, resulting in corrosion and an increased slip hazard.
Ideally, steel structures need a durable coating that protects against both slip and corrosion and that's exactly what the new 28E ARCTEC coating does.
28E ARCTEC coating is a thermally sprayed coating that can be applied with a rough texture and has excellent non-slip properties, while being extremely hard and resistant to wear. The new coating provides:
- A suitable level of grip, to avoid personal slips or industrial skidding
- Comparable corrosion protection to aluminium, as used in aggressive environments
- Application by a long-standing process, covered by international standards
- Process includes shot blasting to achieve maximum adhesion
- Can be over coated with powder coat or paint
