Intershieldâ non-slip systems is said to be an excellent new line of OSHA-compliant coatings designed to meet the needs of the steel fabrication industry. The technology was developed after extensive research and testing, in an effort to provide innovative, cost-effective solutions to OSHA regulation 1926.75©(3)*.  Slated to go into effect on July 18, 2006, the new regulation requires that all walking surfaces coated with paint or similar material must meet a wet slip resistance level of .50, as measured by a Variable Incidence Tribometer (VIT), per ASTM F1679-96.

The ultra-durable, fast-drying single pack polymer coatings can help fabricators maximize production throughput because they are pre-mixed with the precise amount of required aggregate, allowing shop applicators to apply the coatings directly from the can. In addition, the non-slip systems can be rolled on, alleviating the wear and tear on spray gun equipment from harsh aggregate loaded materials.
