Oltco's Etchgrip will dramatically improve the slip resistance and subsequent pendulum slip test values of ceramic tiles, concrete, marble, slate, stone and terrazzo flooring. Oltco can also treat enamel and porcelain bath and shower trays. Etchgrip non-slip treatment increases the safety of your employees and the general public.
Etchgrip non slip flooring treatment is quick and easy to apply, it is not a coating that will flake or wear off.
Etchgrip makes no discernible change to the appearance of your floor, improving productivity and reducing risk, especially in areas that are exposed to water splashes, spills and rain.
Oltco's non-slip flooring treatment microscopically alters the floors surface giving a much greater slip resistance without creating an increase in surface roughness. The resulting floor is safe to walk on when wet and easy to clean.
Within a few hours of treatment the surface can be walked on, minimising disruption and potential loss of earnings.
Tom Stringer, Technical Director at Oltco, explains how we measure slip-resistance, regulations and increasing slip resistance of hard floors using Oltco's Etchgrip system.

Description: We were contacted by the director of TDW Distribution Andrew Williams. TDW Distribution is a large distribution/haulage firm that have been operating for over 40 years. They contacted us as they were having issues with the concrete floor in their distribution warehouse. They were finding that the floor was slippery when wet. In particular their fork lift trucks were skidding across the floor when it was wet. This was causing major issues for health & safety. This is a well known problem throughout this industry.
