InvisaTread® Outdoors – Slip Resistant Solution

InvisaTread® is a safe and effective process that makes hard surfaces less slippery when wet. Ideal for use on stone, tile, mineral surface, porcelain, ceramic, quarry, honed stone, slate and more… *not recommended for polished marble.

InvisaTread® has been formulated to increase the slip resistance of most tile, stone and mineral surfaces.  Slip resistant tile has never been so easy, safe or effective.

Information

The InvisaTread® family of products helps to protect against the risk of slip and fall accidents in your home and commercial spaces. It has been formulated to increase the slip resistance of most surfaces by a revolutionary chemical etching process. InvisaTread® can be used in bathrooms, showers, locker rooms, gyms, spas, outdoor pool areas, walkways, lobbies, and kitchen facilities.

For decades chemical etching products have been used to increase traction but at a terrible risk to both the surface and the applicator. InvisaTread® has changed all of that. Utilizing chemicals often found in women’s facial products, InvisaTread® mildly treats the surface without changing the apparent texture or color.

With the passing of the new ANSI 137.1 DCOF (Dynamic Coefficient of Friction) Acutest standard for tile, InvisaTread® has been verified with the BOT 3000 on countless surfaces to exceed the .42 DCOF minimum threshold for interior horizontal surfaces.

For those still referencing the old ADA guideline for Static COF (SCOF) or ASTM C1028, InvisaTread® will create coefficient of friction of between .60 – .80 when WET after treatment.

While competing products offer a higher COF of greater than .90 WET, we have found that these levels make a surface not just difficult to keep clean but can also create a potential trip and fall accident.

Due to the slower reaction time of InvisaTread® an installer can play with the “dwell” time of InvisaTread® on the surface in order to create the desired level of friction while still maintaining the clean ability of the surface. Simply sponge mop or spray on, let stand and RINSE AWAY!

InvisaTread® Detailed Application Instructions

Tools Required:

  • Spreader/Squeegee or Acid Resistant Hudson Sprayer (recommended for larger areas)
  • 2x 5 gallon pails/buckets – clean
  • Sponge Mop or Wet-Dry Vacuum/Extraction Tool (recommended)
  • Deck Brush

**PRE-APPLICATION TESTING***

Utilize steps 6 – 9 on a small hidden area or extra tile to determine dwell time for desired traction. Longer dwell time equals higher traction. Start with 6 minutes of dwell time and work up to no more than 15 minutes per application. Occasionally, 2 applications are needed to increase COF to desired levels, extract 1st application and repeat steps 6-9.

Application Process

Step 1:

  • In 1st 5 gallon bucket, mix 6oz Traction Wash per gallon of water, a 1:20 dilution. Use a higher concentration (up to 12 oz/gal) if very dirty or greasy.

Step 2:

  • CLEAN. Clean the floor very well with the Traction Wash solution from step 1. Use the deck brush for the grout and tile.

Step 3:

  • Rinse the floor with clean water and dry. Use a wet dry vacuum or extraction tool, if available. It is ok to leave the grout joints wet or damp.

Step 4:

  • Fill Hudson sprayer (or 2nd bucket, if spreading instead of spraying) with 1 gallon of InvisaTread® per 400 sq ft. Do not dilute. Do not mix chemicals.

Step 5:

  • Re-fill 1 st bucket with 10 oz of Traction Wash per 1 gallon of water for every 1,000 Sq ft. Set aside. This will be used to neutralize and rinse the InvisaTread® after dwell time is completed.

Step 6:

  • APPLY. Spray or spread the InvisaTread® onto the area to be treated. Use a liberal amount of product. Coverage should not be more than 500 sq. ft per gallon.

Step 7:

  • DWELL. Allow InvisaTread® to dwell for 6 – 15min (exact time determined by your pre-application testing). Keep surface saturated, do not allow to dry out, puddle or run off.

Step 8:

  • RINSE. After dwell time has elapsed pour 1:20 Traction Wash dilution onto the tile and scrub grout joints with brush to break up residue. Extract surface.

Step 9:

***Test traction by wetting the surface with clean water and trying to slide foot. If more traction is desired repeat step 6 – 9 for a 2nd application.***

Step 10:

  • Rinse a 2nd time with clean water and then extract surface. Surface is ready for immediate use.

Clean regularly with Traction Wash™ @ 1:32 dilution, to maintain your enhanced Coefficient Of Friction (COF).

Grout Troubleshooting – if necessary After grout has completely dried out you might notice some white residue form in a few spots over the next few days. This is simply a salt residue left over after application, scrub with 1:4 dilution of vinegar to water to remove. This does not occur on every application or every type of grout. [/fusion_tab]

InvisaTread® will even deep clean grout joints, leaving behind a clean and restored surface.

InvisaTread® is not a coating, but rather a safe and effective process that works on most hard surfaces:

  • Porcelain
  • Granite
  • Travertine
  • Concrete
  • Brick
  • Ceramic
  • Terrazzo
  • Limestone
  • Slate
  • Quarry Tile

*Not for use on Polished Marble or Polished Travertine / Limestone. 
InvisaTread® should maintain increased COF for at least 3 years with proper care and maintenance. For Information on commercial installation services please contact Surface Solutions.
