Non-Slip Deck Coating Helps Prevent Falls Aboard Rigs And Ships
Epoxo, a non-slip safety coating that helps prevent hazardous slips and falls on offshore rigs and aboard ship is now available from American Abrasive Metals Company. Designed for a highprofile, h e a v y - d u t y t r a c t i o n, Epoxo was originally developed for use by the United States Navy. The coating has been used on the flight decks of all aircraft carriers since 1962, and has been effective in protecting aircraft, personnel, and rolling equipment even during the most rigorous operations.
The unique combination of resins utilized in Epoxo form a bond when cured, which is said to result in a superior slip-resistant surface impervious to water, oil, grease, and most chemicals. A tough resin binder locks in the granules, which cannot be loosened or kicked out. Epoxo is a liquid that applies like paint to any type of surface. But it is a coating, not a paint. The coating is recommended for use on exposed w e a t h e r decks, storage areas, passageways, work areas, and the wet, slippery decks of offshore oil rigs. The coating also helps prevent injury to personnel and damage to aircraft on helicopter landing pads.
