Composition Materials introduces a variety of non-skid coatings designed to be applied in a single application. Many of the additives have the same density as the coatings. Therefore, they remain in suspension after mixing and can be painted on the surface. Currently, most non-skid additives are broadcast after painting. This is more expensive and often produces a lower quality surface.
Non-skid additives include: walnut shell, clear and colored thermoset plastics, and also very hard abrasives such as aluminum oxide.
