Floored: 3M’s protection film can prevent surface erosion
The dangers of drips, spills and clutter are well known, if not always well recognised, by most of us – both within the work and home spaces. Liquid drips and spills, heavy traffic, rolling chairs and other finish-eroding events can all affect the safety of floors and surfaces, not to mention the slip hazards associated with such depreciation.
3M Australia, within its Cleaning and Workplace Safety Division, has developed its Anti-Slip and Surface Protection Film, which will prevent the eroding damage and keep your floors safe, even in high traffic areas.
The 3 Anti-Slip and Surface Protection Film is a thin, almost invisible film that protects surfaces from everyday wear and tear. It has been certified to a P4 slip rating. The product comes in a 1.2 metre x 15 metre mini roll and a 80 millimetre x 15 metre roll that is ideal for staircases.
Reducing the number of stripping and re-coating jobs required, the Anti-Slip and Surface Protection Film needs no special tools or techniques for installation or removal. The film is ideal for waxed vinyl, sealed concrete, marble, ceramic tile, terrazzo and other surfaces. In addition, it is compatible with standard floor cleaning procedures and cleaning chemicals.
3M product engineer Ranmalee De Silver says, “The 3M Anti-Slip and Surface Protection Film will assist you with meeting a P4 slip rating classification for problematic floors.
“In addition to meeting the slip resistance, the unique peelable feature of this product avoids the need to use mechanical methods or harsh chemicals to remove and replace coating to maintain slip resistance, unlike competitive products out in the market,” De Silver points out.
3M Australia offers an array of surface cleaning chemicals, finishings and coatings, as well as products for floor safety and spill management.
