SURE-STEP slip-resistant additive is a finely ground polymer material for addition to concrete sealers for slip resistance. This additive can be added to most film-forming water- and solvent-based sealers, including the CS-309™, DECRA-SEAL™, and VOCOMP® series, as well as TIAH® and SEAL CURE™-309-25 from W. R. MEADOWS. Please consult sealer manufacturer prior to using, if using a product not listed above.
SURE-STEP provides improved chemical and abrasion resistance, and is more comfortable to bare feet on treated surfaces than sand or aggregate additives. The product’s low density and insolubility characteristics will help reduce settling and provide optimum performance in its various applications, without changing the viscosity. Due to its low density, SURE-STEP stays suspended in thin materials.
SURE-STEP is perfect for use on areas where a non-slip surface is desired. This includes walkways, driveways, garage floors, patios, and other surfaces.
3.2 oz. units (36/carton)
16 oz. units (12/carton)
The 3.2 oz. container of SURE-STEP is recommended for addition to a one-gallon can. The 16 oz. container is recommended for five-gallon pails.
May help contribute to LEED credits:
Surface Preparation…Follow surface preparation directions of sealer being applied.
Application Method…SURE-STEP is designed to be incorporated into a suitable concrete sealer. Minimum addition ratios are 3.2 oz. per one gallon can and 16 oz. per five-gallon pail. Additional SURE-STEP can be added, depending on the desired texturing effect. Do not exceed eight oz. per gallon. Stir, while adding SURE-STEP to the container of sealer. The product may float at first, but once it has wet out, it will mix in easily. In thinner products, occasional stirring during application may be required to keep the particles well suspended within the coating. It is recommended that when mixing SURE-STEP into unfamiliar sealers that a small test batch is mixed, followed by a small test application.
Drying Time … Follow directions of sealer being applied.
Cleanup … Follow directions of sealer being applied.
SURE-STEP will increase the texturing effect of a sealer, but the addition of the slip-resistant additive should not be considered non-skid, anti-skid, or non-slip.
SURE-STEP is not hazardous and does not contain silica, but should be treated as a nuisance dust while incorporating it into its intended vehicle. Use with adequate ventilation. Use appropriate, properly fitted respirator protection filter apparatus and avoid breathing dust and particles. If dizziness, headache, or eye watering occur, get to fresh air; leave area immediately. In case of eye contact, flush with large amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical attention if irritation persists. Do not take internally. If swallowed, seek medical attention immediately. Keep out of reach of children. Close container after each use. Use protective clothing to avoid contact with skin and eyes. Refer to Material Safety Data Sheet for complete health and safety information.
