Slip Hazard

Sealing of smooth and sloping concrete surfaces will reduce pedestrian and vehicle safety. For greater slip reduction an Anti-Slip Additive can be mixed into the product and rolled out as a final coat. Testing is recommended before proceeding to ensure that a potential slip hazard is avoided. Refer to your Nutech specialist for alternative recommendations on steep, smooth surfaces.
