Aluminum Oxide 24 Grit, 10lbs
Once applied, coated substrates may be slippery when wet and present a potential safety hazard. To mitigate this risk, aggregates are broadcast into coating systems during installation as a form of “anti-skid” to provide a more granular surface for improved traction. The four types of anti-skid aggregates available, listed from least “aggressive” to most “aggressive”, are: (i) polypropylene media, (ii) GFC anti-skid media, (iii) quartz, and (iv) aluminum oxide.
Aluminum Oxide is broadcast by hand or hopper gun directly into the color coat. This aggregate is the most “aggressive” and most visible of all anti-skid types. It is used in high-traffic areas open to the public. Aluminum Oxide is offered in two colors, black and white, enabling partial masking in medium through full-chip installations. Typical locales include walkways, driveways, and interior/exterior parking lots.
