American Abrasive Metals Announces New Non-Slip Roll-On Safety Coating

A new non-slip coating, proven in use by the U.S. Navy, is now available as original safety equipment for new or existing ships and offshore rigs, regardless of age. The safety coating is manufactured and marketed by American Abrasive Metals Co.

Called Epoxo, the low-cost coating simply rolls on in minutes to help stop slips and falls at sea.

Epoxo's unique high-traction surface protects personnel and equipment, as well as providing vital non-skid safety for helicopter landing pads on offshore rigs. The coating is easily applied by shipyard or shipboard personnel. Simply Simply roll, trowel or spray on. A two-man team can roll on up to 1,000 square feet in only 60 minutes.

Originally developed to meet critical requirements of the U.S.

Navy, Epoxo Non-Skid Coating has been installed on the entire flight deck of every aircraft carrier constructed since 1960. Epoxo protects personnel, rolling equipment and aircraft under the rigorous conditions of carrier flight deck operations.

For the first time, this professional non-slip coating is offered to the commercial marine and offshore industry. With Epoxo, naval architects and everyone concerned with marine safety can now specify professional non-slip safety as an integral part of design for ships and offshore rigs.

Because of its special blend of resins, Epoxo is unaffected by seawater, oil, gasoline, grease, most chemicals, hydraulic fluids, acids, alkalines, solvents and detergents.

Long-lasting, economical Epoxo can be applied to any properly prepared, clean, sound surface.
