Epo Tuff ES-83 Anti Slip Coating
High-solids, high-build, slip resistant epoxy protective coating for tough industrial environments. Especially formulated to solve complex slip injury problems, with minimal surface preparation. These coatings are designed to permit application directly to tightly adhering rust and intact old paint. With its blend of penetrants and surface tension-control agents, ES-83 has superior wetting action and creates a tight bond. The result is a tough, durable coating with excellent resistance to weather, moisture, sunlight and chemical fumes. The low-solvent weather, moisture, sunlight and chemical fumes. The low-solvent formula will typically not lift or wrinkle old paint, and it is also an excellent direct-to-metal protective coating for new, unpainted surfaces. It meets existing VOC regulations, and meets requirements for drinking water and indirect food contact.
For durable anti-slip protection in a variety of industrial settings, and for every maintenance painting job.
A tough coating that seals and protects in just one application, it is an excellent all-in-one primer and topcoat for new and existing floors in industrial facilities and exterior weathered exposure. It resists high humidity and moisture, and is compatible with prepared damp surfaces.
ES-83 cures through wide temperature range, and is available in a range of colors. It is a self-priming topcoat over most existing coatings. Its chemical resistance to splash/spillage and fumes makes ES-83 an excellent choice for a wide variety of general maintenance applications.
ES-83 high solids coatings save time and money in slip injury prevention
Features and Benefits
1. Primer and topcoat in one – no downtime, less costly to apply.
2. Requires minimal surface preparation especially convenient where blast cleaning is impractical.
3. Can be applied over old paint and rust. Low-solvent formula penetrates to form a tight bond.
Compatible with most older coatings, as well as damp substrates.
4. Application by brush, roller or spray is quick and easy. At 70°F (21°C) dries to the touch in just 2
hours. Cures to a tough, durable film that resists moisture, and chemical fumes.
5. A single 5-mil (125 microns) coat delivers long-term protection compared to conventional paints
that require two or three coats and deliver short-lived protection. Can even be applied in thicknesses
up to 8 mils (200 microns) in one coat – a significant advantage for coating angular surfaces.

ES-83 is designed for use in a variety of areas, even those where surface preparation is impossible. As a maintenance coating, ES-83 protects and slip proofs steel in industrial facilities, bridges, marine weathering, and other exposures. Good chemical resistance to splash/spillage, fumes and immersion in neutral, fresh and salt water (see resistance table).
1. USDA – Incidental food contact
2. NSF Standard 61 – For use in drinking water.
3. FDA 21 CFR 175.300 extraction test for direct food contact
Coating performance is, in general, proportional to the degree of surface preparation. ES-83 can be applied over mechanically cleaned surfaces. All surfaces must be clean, dry and free of all contaminants, including salt deposits. ES-83 may be used over most types of properly prepared and tightly adhering coatings. A test patch is recommended for use over existing coatings. Galvanizing – Remove oil or soap film with detergent or emulsion cleaner, then use zinc treatment or

Leading Technology Cleaners: To help ensure and prolong the effectiveness of the Treatment after application we highly recommend that the surface be maintained with Supreme Guard Cleaner for greasy environments, No Rinse Neutral Cleaner to replace alkaline based cleaner which always causes build-up that caused the floor to be slippery or Slip-Resistant Floor Cleaner that has been designed to meet a need in the marketplace for a product that would effectively clean soiled floors and simultaneously leave a slip resistant film on the floor. If you allow dirt to accumulate over the treated surface, this will diminish the effectiveness of the Treatment. Treated surface must be cleaned/degreased on a regular basis.
Why Hardrock Safety Solution Anti Slip Treatment?
We anticipate a TWENTY-SEVEN (27) YEARS MONOPOLY on the process in coatings & chemicals technology. We have developed the most complete range of floor safety products in the world.
What is Hardrock Safety Solution Slip-Resistant Treatment?
A water based, low odor, colorless liquid. It is not a coating that can wear and that requires repeated reapplication. Hardrock Safety Solution Slip-Resistant Treatment was formulated to be a quick, easy application on natural stone floors. It is simply mopped onto the clean floor using a lambswool applicator. The floor is kept wet with the Treatment, usually for 15 minutes, and then rinsed away with clean, cold water. This simple process will increase the coefficient of friction. The floor can be put back into use immediately. There is no cure time as with coatings. Good housekeeping practices are assumed.
How Does Hardrock Safety Solution Slip-Resistant Treatment Work?
All natural stone contains small amounts of silica. H.S.S Slip-Resistant Treatment is carefully formulated to dissolve a controlled amount of the silica so as to create thousands of minute, shallow indentations in the surface. This profile is so subtle that it cannot be felt or seen. Because the profile sits BELOW the
level of the surface, it does not affect the cleaning process as with a profile that stands ABOVE the surface such as an anti slip paint coating. When the surface is wet with water, these shallow indentations fill. When a pedestrian walks across the wet surface and their shoe starts to slide, the water is squeezed out of the indentations turning them into thousands of suction cups that helps stop
the shoe from slipping. All that is required of the property owner is good housekeeping to keep the floor
free of soil accumulation and grease.
Note: Black or dark tiles can whiten, lighten or discolor. Certain types of tiles might be easier to trap
dirt, however the anti slip treatment is amazing.
