Epoxo Safety Coating Helps Prevent Slipping —Literature Available

A non-slip safety coating for ships and offshore rigs is available from American Abrasive Metals of Irvington, N.J. Called Epoxo, the abrasive coating helps protect personnel and equipment from accidents caused by slips and falls. Originally developed for use by the U.S. Navy, Epoxo has been used on flight decks of all aircraft carriers since 1962.

On ships, the safety coating could be used effectively on exposed weather decks, work areas, storage decks, walkways, passageways, and vehicular traffic areas to insure the protection of personnel and equipment from costly accidents. For offshore rigs, Epoxo's high-traction surface enables men and equipment to maintain traction even on wet, slippery, and oily decks. It also helps prevent injury to personnel and damage to aircraft on helicopter landing pads.

Epoxo's epoxy formulation resists wear with "locked in" abrasive granules that cannot be loosened. The heavy-duty liquid coating applies as easily as paint over almost any surface, is unaffected by water, oil, grease, and most chemicals, and is equally effective inside and out.
