This anti-slip solution erodes “pock marks” in the glazed surface of the tile. These pock marks with a liquid causes a vacume type environment when stepped on with your bare foot or soft soled show. This then ensures superior grip!
These anti-slip tile treatment solutions should not be confused with coating products that sit on top of tiles. Anti-slip coatings wear off and leave you with the same problem of slippery wet tiles.
The more advanced solutions ensure maximum grip that increases with an increase in water or fluid, effectively making them safer as more water accumulates. Where the anti-slip paints and anti-skid varnishes sit on the surface of the tiles, this anti slip solution reacts with the silicates in the glazed or hardened surface of the tile.
The idea is to keep the solution on the peaks of the “hills”, rather than the valleys, that are naturally formed during the baking process of the tiles. The application process will widen and deepen the microscopic pores. When the tile is slippery with water, your shoe or bare foot squashes the water out of the pore and grips to the surface just like a tire does to a wet road thus reducing the likelihood of a slip.

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
The anti-slip tile treatment increases the slip resistance of all types of tiles and smooth or floated concrete surfaces, reducing the likelihood of slip related accidents.
Non-Slip.co.za delivers an anti-slip tile treatment (not a coating that will wear off) for tile, marble, terrazzo and concrete products. The treatment increases the slip resistance of all types of tiles and smooth or floated concrete surfaces, reducing the likelihood of slip related accidents.
