Treadsafe is solvent free and virtually low odour. It is easily applied by roller in one thick, tough coat and is finishes by rolling in hard wearing carborundum particles. The coating will easily withstand very heavy traffic including forklift trucks and harsh chemicals. It is ideal for use on floors, stairs, ramps, loading bays boat decks etc.

Can be used on concrete, metal and wooden floors
Surface Preparation - Concrete and Stone.
Concrete to be treated must be dry and at least four weeks old and free of any soft surface laitance and contaminants.
Previous coatings should ideally be removed by wire brushing or sanding. If this is impractical the surface should be thoroughly abraded and loose paint removed. All traces of grease or oil should be removed withND14 Cleaner Degreaser and the area thoroughly hosed off and allowed to dry.
Very smooth concrete or concrete with soft surface laitance should be etched with RUST-OLEUM Surfa-Etch 108 Etching Solution and the area thoroughly hosed off and allowed to dry.
Surface Preparation – Steel
Remove any loose or flaking material and rust by wire brushing or disc grinding. Oil or grease should be removed with ND14Cleaner Degreaser and the metal then washed with water and allowed to dry. Coating should be carried out immediately after cleaning providing that flash rusting has not occurred.
Surface Preparation – Wood
Wood should be sanded to a reasonably smooth finish, and all unsound coatings should be removed. Any uncoated surfaces or edges which are not to be treated with Treadsafe should be sealed to prevent expansion and contraction of the wood due to moisture.
Application and Thinning
A pile-type roller (not foam) should be used to apply the mixed resin and hardener.
Pour the mixed resin and hardener into a shallow roller tray. Apply the mixed resin and hardener by roller to a measured area of 5m2.
Immediately sprinkle the anti-slip aggregate uniformly onto the wet coat to obtain the desired surface finish (total or light coverage). Using the same roller that was used to apply the mixed resin and hardener roll over the sprinkled aggregate to bed in and cover the anti-slip aggregate. It is not normally necessary to re-charge the roller with mixed resin unless very heavy quantities of grit have been applied.
