SKID-EX™ is a polymeric grit designed as an anti-skid, anti-slip material. It will mix easily in all types of latex floor paints and stains. It can be used as a texturizer in paints. It is designed to help prevent slips and falls.
It will not change the color or property of the product to which it is added when in compliance with the manufacturer’s proportion specifications. It can be used in clear coats. Color is white but turns clear in dispersion.
It’s low density and specific gravity greatly reduces settling in paints and stains.
A good anti-slip profile can be achieved with as low as 7 to 8 ounces per gallon of latex product. It has sized grit ranging from 40 to 60 mesh particle size.
SKID-EX™ can be added to paints and stains before application to floors, patios, pool decks, walkways, stairways, ramps, ladders, wet areas and marine uses.
