Reasons Why Many Use Anti Slip Soft Tread Coatings:
Water Theme Parks, Marinas, Yacht Owners, Marina Operators, Golf Courses, Hotel and Motel Owners, Commercial Centers, Industrial Building Managers, Amusement Parks and even Home-owners have found the tremendous benefit of using Soft Tread Protective Polyurethane Anti Slip Coatings. This coating helps prevent slips and falls which are known to be the number one cause of injury in the United States. According to the National Safety Council, Millions of dollars are paid out annually by insurance companies for slip andfall accidents, and the average cost of a slip or fall injury is over $27,000.00. Protecting yourself against the high cost of litigation is important while also providing your guests with a safe environment. You can enjoy peace of mind and provide top quality protection at your facility or home for a small investment in the application of Soft Tread.
Use Anti Slip Soft Tread Coatings:
The ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) has mandated for marinas & dock owners that the walking surfaces must comply with the following:
- Steps with non-slip surfaces shall be provided
- All walkways shall be maintained in a non-slip condition
- All walkways shall have non-slip surface (Ref. #1910.231, #1910.236 and #1910.261)
A failure to comply with these mandates could result in significant penalties and fines. But, companies that comply may be eligible for substantial tax breaks.

General & Technical Information:
These coatings are environmentally friendly and user friendly while generating NO VOC's or Isocyanates typically associated with Polyurethane type products. It utilizes Virgin EPDM rubber (or in Black - Recycled Rubber) for an anti-slip surface on most prepared substrates. Soft Tread is flexible so it's chip, scuff and impact resistant which means a long service life. It cures by evaporation and air dries quickly while it's also NON FLAMMABLE for safe application and no hazardous fumes. While we provide Soft Tread Coating in several standard colors.
|Vehicle:||Waterbased, 100% Aliphatic Polyurethane|
|Cures by:||Evaporation / Air Drying|
|Visc:||(liquid) 15-20 Kcps|
|Wt / Gal.:||10.2#|
|V.O.C.:||0.02#/gal. (2.4g/L) = ZERO VOC's|
|Toxicity:||NON-TOXIC & relatively odorless.|

Coating Application & Maintenance:
Click here for some great information: Soft Tread Application Guide
To clean the surface and maintain the beauty of Soft Tread, use general purpose cleaners such as: Tri Sodium Phosphate (TSP), Laundry Detergent (Tide Powder), Citrus Orange Cleaners, Formula 409, Simple Green or similar type products. Also a dilute bleach or caustic cleaner solution.
For best results, apply cleaner at recommended dilution rate and scrub lightly with a stiff bristle deck brush. Rinse thoroughly when cleaning is complete. Automatic scrubbers can also be used for large areas. With automatic scrubbing equipment, use light pad pressure only! Heavy pressure can damage the coating material.
Soft Tread Coating Colors:
Colors available for Soft Tread include Cream, Dark Blue, Sand, Light Green, Water Blue, Dark Brown, Dark Green, Medium Blue, Tan, Light Gray, Medium Gray, and Dark Gray.
We also have Safety Orange, Safety Yellow, Red, Black, Yacht White, and Brick Red to meet the needs of Safety Purposes.
Please Note: Coating Colors may vary displayed online may vary due to printing and web viewing.
Soft Tread Coating Textures:
Soft Tread Coating can be applied to easily create a wide range of textures.
Soft Tread Coating contains small particle size Virgin EPDM rubber for an “easy on the feet and knees” feel with great traction on wet surfaces. OR, you can apply it to create an aggressive texture by changing the application technique. You can apply a light base layer and then apply a heavier layer on top with our special open foam roller to increase the texture or you can brush a smoother layer on top for areas that require less texture relief but still require great anti-slip properties. Create a slightly heavier texture for areas of heavy foot traffic and light vehicular traffic where good anti-slip properties are required. Create a slightly smoother texture for kitchens or galleys where mopping is frequent and an easy-to-clean surface is a requirement.
Soft Tread Coating is designed for use indoors or outdoors in wet or dry environments. Soft Tread is made for outstanding resistance to water and humidity, chemicals, solvents, and stains. Soft Tread Coating is flexible and has excellent adhesion to most substrates while exhibiting excellent abrasion resistance and increased traction.
