How our Anti Slip Treatment Works
Untreated floors (in the form of ceramic tiles, homogenous tiles, marble, etc.) normally have surfaces that are made up of soft and hard agents.
In its untreated form, water planing (water ponding) tends to occur when the floor surface is wet and becomes extremely slippery when stepped upon.
SURE STEP non-slip treatment treats the surface of the floor with proprietary chemicals from Canada, removing the soft agents while leaving the hard surface behind at a hyper-microscopic level which is invisible to the naked eye.
After the floor surface is treated with the floor treatment chemicals by our specialists, all chemicals on the floor surface are then completely washed away.
What you have now is a wet floor surface that will have a suction cup effect on your feet or shoes when stepped upon, giving you a safe surface to walk on. Technically, it means that the coefficient of friction has been increased from an unsafe level to a very safe level.
Please note that on dry surfaces, the difference will be minimal. However, when the surface is wet, the treated surface will cause a grip on your feet to prevent you from slipping. Treatment does not change the appearance of the surface in most cases, unless the tile is glossy or dark in colour.
Treated floors are available for use immediately after treatment as there is no curing process.
