Many anti-slip products available in the market generally use hydrofluoric acid (hydrogen fluoride), in differing concentrations. This is an extremely corrosive acid that dissolves silica found in all mineral materials.
When a hydrofluoric acid-based product is applied to a substrate, the silica crystals are dissolved, which creates a pitted surface that will produce a suction effect (drawing 2).The inconvenience of this process is the need to handle hazardous materials that significantly alter the substrate’s appearance by encouraging dirt, given that the pitted surface quickly fills with oil and dust.
Guard Slip Resistant uses the silica found in materials, but, unlike other products, it produces a chemical reaction that will schematically graft new molecules on those already existing in the substrate (drawing 3).This results in a better and longer lasting anti-slip effect that only slightly changes the surface appearance.
To use on:
- All mineral substrates, both indoors and outdoors: ceramic tiles, concrete, terrazzo, granite, tiled floors, and enamel.
Ideal to treat:
- Pedestrian zones, compounds, lobbies, retirement homes, gyms, swimming pools, kitchens, bathrooms, showers, enamel bathtubs, industrial environments… and everywhere with surfaces that become slippery when wet.
