Valspar® Anti-Skid Floor Texture Additive is a product designed to provide slip resistance and improve traction on various surfaces, such as floors, steps, ramps, decks, and more. It is commonly used with Valspar® interior and exterior latex-based floor coatings, including concrete, wood, and primed metal surfaces.
The Anti-Skid Floor Texture Additive is a granular material that is mixed directly into the coating product to create a textured surface. The additive consists of particles that help create a rougher surface, increasing grip and reducing the risk of slipping, especially when the surface is wet or oily.
To use the Valspar® Anti-Skid Floor Texture Additive, you typically follow these steps:
Prepare the surface: Ensure that the surface is clean, dry, and free from dust, dirt, grease, or any other contaminants. Repair any cracks or damage and let them dry completely before applying the coating.
Mix the coating: Follow the instructions on the specific Valspar® coating product you are using. Combine the coating material with the recommended amount of Anti-Skid Floor Texture Additive. Stir thoroughly to ensure even distribution of the additive.
Apply the coating: Use a brush, roller, or sprayer to apply the textured coating onto the prepared surface. Follow the application instructions provided by Valspar® for the specific coating product being used.
Allow to dry: Let the coating dry according to the manufacturer's instructions. Drying times may vary depending on environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity.
It's important to note that the Anti-Skid Floor Texture Additive is designed to enhance slip resistance but does not guarantee complete slip prevention. It is always recommended to exercise caution when walking on any surface, especially when wet or in potentially hazardous conditions.
Before using the Valspar® Anti-Skid Floor Texture Additive or any other coating product, it's advisable to read and follow the manufacturer's instructions and safety precautions provided on the product label or packaging.
