Non Slip Aggregates
Non Slip Aggregates are available in three grades:-
The choice of grade is determined by the use for the finished surface.
Non slip aggregates are applied in the same way for all systems.
Firstly a single application of the coating is applied to a carefully prepared surface. While this is still wet and active the non-slip aggregate is ‘broadcast’ evenly over the surface.
Do not over apply the aggregate as this is counter productive and will leave a surface which is very difficult to clean.
Allow the first coat to become tack free. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove any excess aggregate that has not adhered to the first coat.
Apply a further coat to the vacuumed area in order to lock in the non slip aggregate. A third coat may be required if the cover over the first coat and aggregate leaves a too harsh surface.
Preparation is of vital importance. Lighter application result in optimum performance.
Clear Anti-Slip Bead
Anti-Slip Bead is easy to apply and provides a subtle non-slip surface ideal for a variety of applications. The clear 250-425 micron beads are a great way to maintain the aesthetics of the substrate or coating.
- Coping stones.
- Swimming pool steps
- Factory floors
Can be mixed into a variety of Antel epoxy products including Epoxy ClearCoat Resin, PoolCoating System 10, Epoxy Coating & Epoxy Coating Heavy Duty.
One pot of Anti-Slip Bead is enough for 1kg of material if a moderate level of anti-slip is required. Adjust the amount used depending on the level of slip resistance required.
Simply pour the Anti-Slip Bead into the epoxy coating and mix thoroughly before applying the product in the usual way.
