Axalta's new Alelsta non-slip coating is recommended for use on metal decking, ramps, railings, hand tools and other areas such as industrial environments, as well as in infrastructure and manufacturing.

“Slippery surfaces can pose real dangers, especially when exposed to water,” Axalta product manager Craig Dietz said in a statement. “There is a demand for anti-skid coatings in the industry and I am excited that Axalta has recognized and responded to this as part of its commitment to stay at the forefront of our customers’ needs.”

Application

The new Alesta coating is intended for application via cold electrostatic spray, curing in 10 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit at a film thickness of 4 to 5 mils.

The coating is formulated as a TGIC-polyester, and can also be made as a custom product using epoxy, hybrid or HAA chemistries. The new product can be applied directly to metal or over a colored basecoat. Axalta says the product is tested to 1,000 hours of salt spray per ASTM B117-97.

Axalta's new Alesta non-slip coating is available in the colors Buff, Citron, Frost and Jet.
