The testing process for our anti-slip coated chequer plate uses the ASTM D4518 test method. This process measures the static friction on coated surfaces by determining the resistance.
As a result, the test process has proven our anti-slip powders have a reduced friction coefficient of 35%, in comparison to other standard coatings.
What Is An Anti-Slip Coating, And The Benefits?
An anti-slip coating is a finishing process that applies a rough surface finish to our aluminium chequer plate. The tough, durable coating improves slip-resistance of the chequer plate and offers a secure walking surface.
In fact, the main benefit of the rough texture provides an improved slip-resistant that reduces the chance of accidents.
Furthermore, the anti-slip is applied during the powder coating process, which offers a wide array of colours and finishes. For instance hazardous yellow or clinical white for an architectural or industrial aesthetic finish.
The Application Process
Similarly to the powder coating process, a free-flowing, dry powder is typically applied electrostatically. Then it is cured under heat.
However, with an anti-slip coating. The consistency is made up with abrasive particles.
As a result this provides a hard-wearing surface and a heavily rough-textured finished.
