Anti Slip Treatment is a specialised anti-slip surface treatment, not a non-slip coating. Coatings can delaminate, yellow with age, or just wear off, making the most expensive floors look worn and unsightly. A single application of Anti Slip Treatment will last up to 5 years, even under high traffic. Use this highly effective treatment to make your work floors or public areas regulation-compliant and safe. Also, ideal for porcelain bathtubs.
- Anti-slip for tiles and other floor surfaces
- Safer when wet
- Does not peel or delaminate
- Lasts up to 5 years
- Exceeds safety standards
The aesthetic of a beautiful floor or paved area can add significantly to the appeal of a residential and commercial property or outdoor public space. However, occasionally these surfaces can become dangerous, through poor choice of the coating product, or a combination of wear and contamination. Whatever the reason, slippery tiles, paving or flooring must be treated quickly before someone gets hurt. The correct anti-slip treatment is critical if the look and prestige of these surfaces are to be retained.
When applied according to instructions, the treated surface will comply with the Australian Safety Standard outlined in AS/NZS 4586:2004 (Wet Pendulum Test having mean BPN values between 45-70, Co-efficient of Friction exceeding 0.6 for most areas).
Anti Slip Treatment for tiles:
Anti Slip Treatment is ideal for tiles in foyers, showers, bathrooms, kitchens, pool surrounds, commercial kitchens, food processing plants, hotels, hospitals, fitness clubs, shopping centres, outdoor public areas and any other ‘slippery when wet’ hard floor areas. It can also be used on glazed ceramic tiles, vitrified tiles, quarry tiles, polished granite, terrazzo, marble, concrete, slate and other hard floor surfaces.
After applying Anti Slip Treatment to floors, it is advisable to seal the treated area with our Shield It
, a penetrating sealer that will not impair the appearance or slip-resistant qualities but will provide long-term protection from staining by oils, grease, blood, coffee and other contaminants.

Customer Experience – Accor’s Darling Harbour Hotels
“I just wanted to let you know how impressed we are with the results of the Anti-Slip Treatment that was applied to our gym floor.”
I have also had great feedback from staff advising they are really happy with the grip on the tiles now and they have commented on how the appearance of the tile has in no way been affected by the treatment.
Thanks for all your help and I look forward to working with you on improving the floors in other areas of the hotel in the future.

Customer Experience – Port Stephens Council
“Chemron undertook anti-slip pavement treatment works for Port Stephens Council, helping Council improve slip resistance on their pavers within the Nelson Bay CBD area.”
Scope of works included approximately 2000sqm of treatment applied in a busy tourist area. Council would like to thank Chemron for their assistance in providing these treatments and the technical expertise they provided as works were delivered over a site that presented some unique challenges, particularly in relation to pedestrian management.

Case Study – Nelson Bay CBD (Port Stephens Council)
Port Stephens Council regularly conduct Slip resistance testing of pedestrian paths and working surfaces as part of PSC’s risk management strategy. The pavers in Nelson Bay CBD were originally tested by a certified assessor and found four areas totalling 2133sqm to be non-compliant.
With years of foot traffic and other environmental contaminants, it was essential to thoroughly clean and prepared the area.
Chemron’s UBC was used to clean and prepare the area. This essential step ensures the surface would react to the Anti Slip Treatment in a consistent and predictable way.
The Anti Slip Treatment was then applied to the various areas. Once the Anti Slip Treatment had been applying, thoroughly rinsed off and the area allowed to dry, the area was sealed using Shield IT. This penetrating sealer substantially reduces the build-up of unsightly environmental contaminants such as food scraps, bird dropping etc, that can increase the slip risk over time.
Once the Anti-slip treatment was complete the certified assessor tested the treated areas and recorded a P5 (Very Low risk) which exceeded the required P4 (Low risk) rating required.
Directions for use
Coverage: Coverage varies depending on surface type. The following rates are indicative averages:
- Concrete: 5 square metres per litre.
- Ceramic/Vitrified Tiles: 7 square metres per litre.
- Marble/Granite: 10 square metres per litre.
We recommend that the product only be applied by trained professionals and preferably by our accredited applicators.
It is important to ensure safety standards are met.
The approach to achieving the required non-slip level differs for each surface depending on the attributes of that surface which determine the required dilution ratio and dwell time. Also, an incorrect application may damage the surface.
We strongly recommend a test is performed in an inconspicuous area before proceeding to treatment of the entire surface.
