|AST ANTI-SLIP COATINGS FAMOUS
FOR TOUGHNESS & DURABILITY
BATTLE TESTED TOUGH—
First developed for military use on the decks of America’s aircraft carriers, they’ve kept U.S. Navy personnel and equipment safe from slips, falls and skids under the most extreme conditions imaginable for over 40 years.
SLIPS AND FALLS ARE THE #1 WORKPLACE KILLER—
And, cause of disabling injury in the workplace. With contaminants like chemicals, water, food scraps, rain or snow, it’s only a matter of time until somebody slips and falls.
EXCEED OSHA, USDA AND ADA STANDARDS—
AST Anti-Slip Coatings exceed the strictest USDA, OSHA,
and ADA specifications and pass ASTM tests.
COSTS THE SAME AS PAINT, LASTS 5 TIMES LONGER—
Sand thrown into ordinary floor paint has been the most common treatment against slips and falls, but the protection is short lived. The sand crystals soon begin to break off and lay on top of the surface, exposing you to further slip and fall danger.

THE NAVY CALLS IT
A "CONTROLLED CRASH"
The F-14 Tomcats that smash onto the surface of U.S. Navy aircraft carriers in what is so appropriately called a “controlled crash,” are ruthless on the flight deck’s coating. They weigh over 30 tons and slam onto the surface at 170 mph. The exhaust from their afterburners reaches 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit during catapult takeoffs. The most corrosive substances in the world spray onto the deck: jet fuel, Skydrol hydraulic fluid, grease, oil, and salt spray. It also has to withstand ultraviolet rays, terrible storms, extreme heat and cold, and the shock and abrasion of a jet smashing into a tailhook landing. The Navy can’t settle for second best. That’s why they use AST Anti-Slip Coatings.
