Safe Tread Anti Slip Coating - Clear
When wood or decorative concrete gets wet... It's Slippery. But now you can keep the beautiful surface and make it safe with Safe TreadClear.
This 100% Acrylic formulation bonds tightly to a wide range of surfaces and is applied at only 150 to 225 square feet per gallon. Heavy traffic areas may require the 150 square feet per gallon application rate.
Safe Tread >Clear stands up to the weather because this formulation repels water and will not water whiten as many other clear products will.
Special UV blockers help prevent ultra violet deterioration of the substrate as the sun shines through.
Reasons Why Many Use Safe Tread Clear:
Safe TreadClear is unique anti slip coating because it allows the decorative look to show through. You no longer have to sacrifice beauty for safety. The Hospitality Industry is especially concerned with safety, but they want a product that blends in with their decorating scheme. Industrial looking safety coatings just don't have the beauty and warmth that can be achieved with Safe Tread Clear.
Public walkways can be smooth and a danger when wet. Safe Tread Clear is unobtrusive yet gives great safety to wet areas.
Natural wood decks are beautiful when the sun is shining, but can get real slippery when wet. Safe Tread Clear maintains a safe footing in wet conditions AND helps keep the surface cleaner because mold and mildew can't get a foothold as easily as they might in uncoated wood. Safe Tread Clear protects both the substrate and the pedestrians.
Slip and fall accidents are a major liability. The application of Safe Tread Clear can reduce liability and at the same time beautify and protect the substrate.
Where to Use Safe Tread Clear Anti Slip Coating:
NEW, Clear Safe Tread Formula makes decorative, stained concrete or natural wood surfaces safer. You get a NON SKID surface while allowing the beauty of the underlying surface to show through. Now you can get great NON SKID properties for less than $0.45 per square foot.

Safe Tread Clear Coating:
When applied evenly and at the recommended rate, Safe Tread Clear imparts almost NO color onto decorative wood or concrete surfaces. Angular sheen may be reduced somewhat due to the non skid particles but the beauty of the underlying surface will shine through. Heavy applications can result in some opacity especially when viewed from a low angle. For that reason, Safe Tread Clear is designed to give great traction with only a light application required.

Coating Application & Maintenance:
Clear Safe Tread can be applied at surface temperatures between 50°F and 110°F. Application is not recommended when surface temperature is below 50°F or soon to fall below that temperature. Prepare surfaces by pressure washing and removal of all dirt, grease, loose paint, rust, efflorescence, biological growth or other contaminants. Etch new concrete after 30 day curing with a Muriatic Acid wash and rinse thoroughly. All surfaces must be clean, dry and “paint ready” before application.
Check weather conditions to be certain rain or dew is not imminent before product has the opportunity to dry fully after application. Stir product well. Apply product with a short nap 1/8" to 1/4" paint roller or by brush. Apply at the rate of 200 to 225 square feet per gallon. Stir product occasionally while applying to keep aggregate well suspended for an even application. If desired apply an additional light coat for maximum traction and durability in high traffic areas. Clean up spills and tools with water. Thin only if necessary with clean water.
To clean the surface and maintain the beauty of Clear Safe Tread, use general purpose cleaners such as: Tri Sodium Phosphate (TSP), Laundry Detergent (Tide Powder is best!), Citrus Orange Cleaners, diluted commercial degreasers, Formula 409, Simple Green or similar type products. Use sparingly: Caustic Cleaners, Ammonia, Bleach or other Bleach Containing Products. For best results apply cleaner at recommended dilution rate and scrub lightly with a stiff bristle deck brush. Rinse thoroughly when cleaning is complete.
