From time to time we get enquiries regarding the impact of our anti slip tile treatment products and hygiene. Clearly cleanliness is 100% important particularly in kitchens and food processing, so what is the impact?
Once the tile treatment has done it’s job and created microscopic tread patterns just below the surface of your slippery tiles, all residue is washed off. In addition, it is odourless clear chemical, so will not affect your food production from the kitchens.
Good news is that there is zero impact! Think about it – the solution (slightly acidic) is applied to the slippery floor area that is to be treated. Once it has done it’s job and created microscopic tread patterns just below the glazed surface of your tiles, all residue is washed off. In addition, it is odourless clear chemical, so will not affect your food production.
Slippery Floor Surfaces caused by Soapy Residues
There is no need to leave any residue and the area treated is washed with clean water. It is harmless from a contamination perspective during the application process. Unlike cleaning materials that leave a residue the surface will remain clean and remember this is not a coating so there will be nothing left.
Typically there are usually more residues and bacteria in kitchens from old spills of food or liquids and also as mentioned, from cleaning products which tend to stay on the surface.
For peace of mind this identical application has been used effectively in many high street globally branded restaurants and fast food chains alongside the kitchens of 5 star luxury global brands.

If your swimming pool area has not been treated it probably is a liability because untreated areas are slippery. The risk increases dramatically when tiles are wet and that’s when slip and fall accidents happen.
Imagine walking around a pool that has smooth, slippery tiles – particularly when there is water splashed alongside, you have to be very, very careful. For some, these slippery areas are a huge liability particularly for younger childeren or if you are older.
Slippery floor tiles are a hazard that can, in most cases, be avoided through an amazing solution that is applied into the pores of a tile. So when your shoe or bare foot makes contact with a wet slippery tile, the water is actually ‘pushed’ out of the pores resulting in mini suction caps being created.
For several years companies and householders have been complaining about floor tiles that are very slippery. One very expensive solution would be to remove the tiles and put new anti-slip tiles in place – but this option
