TIGER Drylac Anti-Skid coatings are formulated to have highly textured surfaces that provide a slip-resistant coating to increase the coefficient of friction (COF). The COF is a term used to describe the ratio of the force of the friction between two bodies and the force pressing them together. A rougher surface, such as an anti-skid, would have a higher COF than a smooth slippery surface.
The lack of traction or lower COF on metal surfaces is a common issue that can lead to accidents across multiple industries including medical and industrial. The application of an anti-skid coating will allow for a safer environment as it provides high traction that prevents slips and falls from occurring. Another property for a highly textured coating is the ability to cover up imperfections on substrates and provide the same quality anti-skid properties for a better grip.
TIGER Drylac Anti-Skid Black (49/80521) is a highly textured coating that is safe for wet and dry conditions. Some of the most popular anti-skid applications include:
- Floor Plates
- Ladder rungs and covers
- Stair treads and covers
- Running boards
- Boat decks
No matter the application – TIGER Drylac Anti-Skid Black will help you adhere to industry standards!
