How to Anti-Slip ceramic and porcelain tiles with Grip-It T.How to Anti-Slip your tiles with Grip-It T.

HOW DOES IT WORK:

It works by micro-etching the glaze of the tile. The longer it is allowed to dwell on the surface, the more micro-texture it creates, the more slip resistance is created. It is a permanent treatment.

WORKS ON:

For glazed and unglazed ceramic, porcelain and tessellated tiles in domestic, commercial, indoor and outdoor areas. For homes, supermarkets, airports, hotels, building foyers, retail stores, kitchens, restaurants, bars etc

TEST FIRST:

Always test first in an inconspicuous area to determine ease of application, dwell time, colour stability & desired results. User must determine suitability for their use.

PRECAUTIONS:

  1. Read entire label, SDS and technical bulletin before using;
  2. Use when surface temperature is between 4°C and 28°C;
  3. DO NOT POUR DIRECTLY FROM BOTTLE ONTO THE SURFACE;
  4. Do NOT allow product to come in contact with any polished or acid sensitive or non-recommended surfaces;
  5. Do not pour in metal containers or mix with other chemicals;
  6. May affect dark tiles, dark grouts, metal and polished surfaces;
  7. Depending on how much anti-slip micro-texture is created, some dark coloured tiles can lighten in colour and polished porcelain will start to lose it’s polished finish going from polished to satin to matt.

WHAT YOU NEED BEFORE YOU START:

  1.  Protective gloves, eye, skin & foot protection and a watch for timing;
  2. XtremeClean+ or Stone Wash+ to clean & prepare the surface;

  3. Carefully apply Grip-It T for Tiles evenly to tile surface with a suitable clean sponge, roller or mop – DO NOT SPRAY;
  4. Allow to dwell initially for about 5 minutes -“the dwell period”;
  5. After the 5 minute “dwell period”, test the amount of slip resistance created by using your shoe or a gloved hand in a scuffing/rubbing motion in the standing solution and make sure you keep track of the “dwell time”;
  6. If you are happy with the slip resistance created, rinse thoroughly with clean water (TIP: Use a wet vac to remove Grip-It T before rinsing)
  7. NOTE: If more slip resistance is required, leave the product on the surface longer and keep testing the amount of slip resistance created every 5 minutes as per STEP 5 until you achieve the desired result;
  8. Repeat the process as necessary to achieve your desired slip resistance;.
  9. DO NOT ALLOW PRODUCT TO DRY ON THE SURFACE – ADD MORE PRODUCT TO KEEP IT WET AND ACTIVE ON THE SURFACE;

LIMITATIONS:

Slip resistance will be affected if treated surface is not cleaned and maintained regularly.

MAINTENANCE:

After successfully treating the surface, use these products to ensure the slip resistance is properly maintained.
