There are many non-slip paints on the market today however none of
them offer the unique combination of benefits of Protectakote.
Protectakote is an extremely well established product and has, under the
Durabak name, been around in the USA for over 25 years. Rather than
just an anti-slip (whilst often known as non-slip it is never possible to have a completely non-slip finish) paint Protectakote is an advanced anti-slip
Polyurethane coating incorporating rubber granules, so offering
exceptional durability, flexibility and toughness. Yet despite its
amazing anti slip properties it is non abrasive and extremely easy to
apply making it suitable for the trade and DIYers alike.
The range of potential uses for the product is almost
infinite, but wherever there is a need to improve health and safety or
to protect from corrosion, weathering and abrasion Protectakote is the
ideal solution. To get a better understanding of Protectakote's features
and the benefits they bring see below.
- Single Component
Protecta-kote is single component polyurethane, which means that no
mixing or blending is required prior to application. Protecta-kote does
not require specialised application equipment that twin-component
systems require. As a single-component system it is ready to use making
it ideally suited to being sold as a DIY or retail product.
- Polyurethane technology
Polyurethanes offer a great deal of advantages over other non slip
paints such as epoxies and acrylics. Polyurethanes chemically bond to
the painted surface leaving an extremely tough coating, which will not
wear or peel. Polyurethanes also bond to a number of surfaces including
metal, concrete, wood, fibreglass, plastic and rubber.
Polyurethanes, again unlike most other non slip paints, are extremely
flexible and elastic so that the coating will bend and flex with the
substrate and not flake or peel so remaining completely bonded to the
- Ready-to-use, Easy to Apply
Protecta-kote is sold ready-to-use and requires no mixing or
blending of components. Simply prepare the surface, roll-on the
Protecta-kote and allow to dry. See the application instructions for more detail.
- Tough non-slip finish
Protecta-kote is formulated using rubber granules that give it an
attractive textured anti-slip finish (even in the wet). This makes
Protecta-kote ideal for use on stairs, walkways, floors, boat decks,
truck beds, ramps, trailers, fire escapes and many many more (see the application section for more areas).
- Non Abrasive
Because Protecta-kote is formulated from polyurethane and rubber
granules it is non abrasive. This means that Protecta-kote does not have
the sandpaper like feel of other non-slip coatings. Protecta-kote will
not damage or scratch any items that are placed on it. Being
non-abrasive it will also not wear down like other coatings.
- Bonds to most surfaces
Protecta-kote can be applied to almost any surface including metal,
wood, concrete, fibreglass, plastic and rubber. This makes Protecta-kote
suitable for a wide number of applications.
- Prevents rust and corrosion
Because Protecta-kote chemically bonds to the substrate
it will prevent the surface from corroding, providing all loose rust is
removed it can even be applied to rusty areas where its bonding
properties will prevent any further rust.
- Resists petrol, acids, solvents and other chemicals
Protecta-kote will protect the surface it's applied to from petrol,
acids, solvents and most chemicals making it ideal protection for
vehicles, boats and factory floors.
- Easy to repair
Protecta-kote is easy to repair, simply paint over with new Protecta-kote.
- Easy to clean
Protecta-kote is easy to clean with standard floor cleaners, pressure
washers (up to 600-700psi) or rotary cleaners making it ideal for
stables, kennels, horseboxes or pub/restaurant kitchen floors
- Weather Resistant
Protects from corrosion and ideal for use internally and externally.
- UV Stable
After 500 hours (2000 hrs with UVR version) of QUV accelerated weathering there was no
deterioration in physical properties and no surface cracking.
Whilst most Polyurethanes will darken slightly on exposure to
UV, the UVR formulations of the product
leads to no darkening and are ideal
for areas such as yacht decks, or areas where water pools
or any area exposed to long term external weathering.
