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 equip- ment for new or existing ships and offshore rigs, regardless of age. The safety coating is manu- factured and marketed by Amer- ican Abrasive Metals Co.

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

Epoxo's unique high-traction sur- face protects personnel and equip- ment, as well as providing vital non-skid safety for helicopter land- ing pads on offshore rigs. The coating is easily applied by ship- yard or shipboard personnel. Sim- ply roll, trowel or spray on. A two-man team can roll on up to 1,000 square feet in only 60 min- utes.

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 car- rier constructed since 1960. Epoxo protects personnel, rolling equip- ment and aircraft under the rig- orous conditions of carrier flight deck operations.

For the first time, this profes- sional non-slip coating is offered to the commercial marine and off- shore industry. With Epoxo, na- val architects and everyone con- cerned with marine safety can now specify professional non-slip safety as an integral part of de- sign 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 de- tergents.

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