How Nano-Grip Works
All mineral-based surfaces are porous by nature. When Nano-Grip is applied, the natural pores are widened and deepened to create a tread pattern that is not slippery and will make your floors safer wet than dry.
Each Anti-Slip Treatment is applied by one of our certified technicians. Our technicians will assess the surface being treated and determine a customized ratio of treatment and SCOF (Static Co-Efficient of Friction) that will be created for your specific surface material in your specific geographical area. Once the product has been applied and neutralized, there is no need for curing or drying time. These treatments will be completed at a suitable time that will not impede your flow of business. Your daily operations can proceed as normal.
What is a SCOF?
The (Static Coefficient of Friction) between two solid surfaces is defined as the tangential force required to produce sliding divided by the normal force between the surfaces.
As adopted by Underwriters Laboratory (UL) & American Society of Testing and Materials (A.S.T.M) ...
"A static anti-slip coefficient of friction of .50 or above is considered a safe walkway surface with a dry condition. A reading below .50 is considered an unsafe walkway surface."
.60 or above.... Very Safe
.50 to .59....Relative Safe
.40 to .49....Dangerous
.35 to .39....Very Dangerous
.00 to .34....Unusually Dangerous
