Abrasive Coatings applied to specialty metal products offer superior slip resistance. Our abrasive coatings have a surface hardness of up to 62 on the Rockwell “C” scale. This approaches the hardness of a file and gives our abrasive coatings the longest wearing surface of any slip resistant product offered. The bond strength exceeds 4,500 p.s.i. Surface hardness and bond strength are critical to longevity. Low bond strength allows the surface to wear off, dramatically reducing the slip resistance and therefore, effective life.
A fine surface with minimum surface depth suitable for variable pedestrian traffic flow and areas with moderate liquid accumulation.
A medium surface applicable to heavier liquid accumulations. This is considered the all-purpose surface.
A coarse surface applicable for extremely heavy traffic, higher debris accumulation and high viscosity fluids.
All metal plasma stream disposition applied directly to plate, bar grating, stair treads, ladder rungs or other specialty steel product. Our abrasive coating can be fabricated in any way (punched, sheared, torched, plasma or laser cut, welded, etc.) on the surface or underside without any adverse effects to the abrasive coated surface.
