An easy way to improve safety inside and out
This tough, resin bound aluminium oxide provides a long-lasting, gritty finish to these stair treads. Easy to apply inside and out, on a range of surfaces.
|Properties||Aluminium plates with an anti slip PVC Surestep tread, predrilled for screw fixing.|
|Surfaces||Floors, ramps, steps.|
|Interior or Exterior||Interior and exterior.|
|Minimum application temperature||Avoid application at temperatures below 10°C. Low temperatures can reduce adhesion.|
Apply to clean, smooth, dry surfaces such as painted or varnished wood, concrete, metal, tiles, and Terrazzo. Apply direct to smooth, hard concrete; dusty concrete will require a primer.
Smooth, non porous, dust free surfaces do not require priming. To improve adhesion on weak, dusty surfaces, apply a coat of Watco Safety Tape Primer.
Avoid application at temperatures below 10°C. Low temperatures can reduce adhesion. On steps and nosings, apply the product approximately 10mm in from the edge to prevent premature wear and edge curl. Peel back the backing strip approximately 50mm to reveal the adhesive layer. Avoid removing too much of the backing strip, but slowly keep peeling it back whilst firming the product into place. Firming down by hand or foot pressure is generally sufficient. You may need Watco Safety Tape Edge Sealer if the area gets very wet, it will help stop water penetrating under the adhesive.
Although the product can be walked on virtually straight away, the adhesive can take 24 hours to set fully. Immediately after placing the item onto the substrate, it can be peeled off reasonably easily. Please allow the adhesive to set if using in heavily trafficked or hazardous areas.
