Slip Resistant Coatings Products
Roll-On Floor Coatings Texture Aggregate
Several materials can be used and are available in fine, medium, and coarse. Depending on the type of polymer applied as the base, an abrasive aggregate will be spread before or during the final coating while the surface is still wet.
Roll-on coatings are glossy and may become slick when wet. Decorative Color Quartz is often used to enhance the look and performance of ArmorFloor™ and ArmorDeck™. Before the final coating or topcoat, Quartz or other abrasive material is broadcast by hand onto specific areas or thrown in the air letting gravity spread in a loose pattern. Decorative Color Quartz also comes in several colors and is UV and chemical resistant. The material wears like stone but is soft to walk on and absorbs sound.
For polyurea or polyurethane sprayed-on coatings, the aggregate is put on in the final coating. The applicator simultaneously uses a handheld sandblasting gun to start spraying the stream of aggregate directly into the stream of the ArmorThane polymer. This continues until the desired “grip” and look are achieved.
As soon as this double-gun process is completed, the applicator continues texturing the surface using only the gun that is spraying the ArmorThane coating. This is done by holding the gun 7 to 8 feet away from the surface and quickly spraying back and forth to bond any loose aggregate.
SureGrip 1:1 Soft Polyurea
- Greatest elongation properties, tensile and tear strength for high movement; adapts very well to multiple substrates; highest coefficient of friction, maxing out our slip resistance testing
- Used on residential and commercial floors and outdoor walkways, especially those exposed to moisture
- Also used in mining applications, secondary containment, marine and other manufacturing and industrial facilities
Ask about other products that can be textured or have particulates added for more grip and slip resistance.

Depending on the type of polymer applied as the base, an abrasive aggregate will be spread before or during the final coating while the surface is still wet.Non-Aggregate Textured Spraying
When abrasive aggregate is not desirable, especially in area where people walk with bare feet such as pool decks or showers, a non-slip, non-skid surface can still be applied. With polyurea or polyurethane spray coatings, the final treatment is “rougher” than the first applications. This is done by using the same ArmorThane polymer but holding the gun further away (7 to 8 feet from the surface) and quickly spraying back and forth. The coating falls as textured droplets. The more spraying done, the rougher the texture becomes.
