3M launches anti-slip floor coating to improve floor safety

3M™ Safety-Walk™ Anti-slip Peelable Coating for vinyl, ceramic, terrazzo and other hard floor surfaces combines slip-resistance with peelable removability.

New 3M anti-slip floor coating CSD Montage Portait-HighWith slips trips and falls estimated to cost Australian businesses $8.7 billioni each year, cleaning contractors and facility managers have welcomed the latest floor safety innovation from 3M Australia’s Commercial Solutions Division – 3M™ Safety-Walk™ Anti-slip Peelable Coating 3500.

This water-based floor coating was developed in Australia to improve floor safety in high-risk, wet slip areas, such as entrance ways, service corridors and bathroomsii. It is ideal for vinyl, ceramic, terrazzo and other hard floor surfaces used in commercial buildings. The product combines anti-slip properties with peelable removability.

The coating’s anti-slip properties are achieved using innovative bead technology based on micronised organic polymer spheres, which create a unique non-abrasive micro-textured surface with optimum abrasion resistance, gloss control and aesthetics.

To support the new floor coating 3M has also developed a range of companion products including edge sealer, applicator tool, 3M™ DoodleBug™ brush and floor pad brush. 3M is holding a limited number of courses to train applicators in how to apply Safety-Walk Anti-slip Peelable Floor Coating.
