SkidGrip is a repair system for anti-skid surfaces. A self-contained kit which includes a two-pack polyurethane (PU) resin system and aggregate.
Features and Benefits
- Very cost effective compared to subcontractor call-out charges
- Allows greater control of work programmes as can all be done "in-house"
- The system has proven durability which will match or exceed the existing surface
- Supplied as complete "all-in-one-tub" solution for simplicity
- No specialist equipment required, so within the scope of all reinstatement gangs
The application surface should be sound and clean, free from grease, oil, rust, scale, dirt, or any other soiling that might affect adhesion or performance. In any case, but especially in the case of overcoating existing surface treatments, it is further recommended that test areas be coated to ensure good adhesion and/or compatibility with the substrate.
Asphalt – weathered - It is recommended that asphalt and other similar surfaces should not be coated until surface oxidisation has taken place, typically up to 6 months.
Asphalt - new & tarmacadam - we do not recommend coating until weathered, but if it is necessary we suggest the use of UltraNuvo primer to prime the surface before application of SkidGrip
Concrete & other cementitious surfaces, including powerfloat, tamped or brushed concrete - Ensure surface is sound, clean and free from laitance. We recommend a preparation method suitable for the specific location and surface is carried out before application of product, to ensure surface is properly prepared back to clean and sound substrate.
Examples of preparation methods that may be suitable are captive shot blasting, diamond grinding, scabbling or planing. It is critical that utmost attention is paid to cleanliness and good workmanship, whatever preparation method is used, as the presence of any loose material, dust, soiling or previous coatings are likely to reduce adhesion of new coatings.
New concrete should be left to harden before coating, as the curing process and residual moisture content can lead to product delamination if coated too early.
All concrete surfaces should be primed with Concrete Primer before application of SkidGrip
Steel Substrates: All steel surfaces must be shot blasted and primed within 24 hours for best adhesion and to prevent the build-up of any rust. Zinc phosphate primer is recommended for best bond.
Scratchcoat requirements - SkidGrip packs are designed for small-area reinstatements and there is a generous allowance of resin supplied, to allow for some resin loss into texture of substrate. Scratchcoat is therefore not generally required.
The 2 components should be mixed thoroughly together as follows: add part B activator to part A base resin and stir for at least 2 minutes using a power stirrer or the mixing stick supplied in kit
Pour mixed resin onto surface and spread evenly using a 4mm serrated squeegee or the applicator supplied with kit. Take care to cover all areas and allow resin to flow flat.
Broadcast bauxite aggregate over surface until fully covered, ensuring no resin remains exposed.
Remove any masking tape after 30 minutes.
Once resin has fully cured, lightly brush surface to remove all excess aggregate.
Do not apply when the air or surface temperature is below 5°C or less than 3°C above dew point, or if this is likely to occur during the curing period.
Do not apply when there is rain, mist, fog, or snow imminent; when humidity is high or the surface is wet with condensation or likely to be during the drying period.
20 minutes at 18˚C,
Touch dry in 1 hour at 18˚C, Traffic time in 3 hours at 18˚C (NB it is possible to add PU accelerator to reduce cure time for quicker re-open times and to speed up cure process in cooler conditions. However great care should be taken as if the mixture is over-accelerated it is likely to result in lack of stone retention)
