After two decades of proven reliability aboard flight decks of aircraft carriers, a general purpose, heavy duty, non-slip deck coating is now commercially available from American Abrasive Metals Company.
The new abrasive coating known as Epoxo has wide application for boat landings and on decks of commercial fishing boats, etc.
Formulated with epoxy resins to give maximum adhesion to wood, steel and concrete, Epoxo is said to be unaffected by salt water and is resistant to most solvents, gasoline, fuels, oil, grease and hydraulic fluids commonly associated with docking facilities. It is particularly effective in areas exosed to salt water during high tides or to rain such as on ladders, vehicular and pedestrian ramps and docks or piers. For commercial fishing boats Epoxo provides anti-slip protection on decks where fish oil, chum and seawater can cause slippery conditions.
Epoxo can be applied with a roller, trowel or spray over properly prepared wood, metal and concrete surfaces including new concrete. In all cases the non-slip coating tenaciously adheres to the surface, acting as a barrier against penetration of oil and grease. A special urethane prepolymer by American Abrasive called Non-Skid Sealer can be applied to Epoxo to prevent any further penetration of oil or grease into the concrete. Available in colors of dark gray, tile red, beige and yellow, Epoxo will hard-dry in 24 hours.
American Abrasive Metals Company has been designing and manufacturing military, marine and industrial products for 75 years. The flight decks of all U.S. Navy aircraft carriers built since 1962 have been coated with Epoxo.
