Our Anti-Slip Coatings were first developed for military use on the decks of America’s aircraft carriers. They have kept US Navy personnel and equipment safe from slips, falls, and skids under the most extreme conditions imaginable for over 50 years.
In what the military terms a “controlled crash,” our coatings are tested and certified to withstand over 15,000 high-impact landings from a 60,000 pound jet fighter, dragging a steel tail hook across the deck at over 170 mph. The exhaust from their after-burners reach 1,800° Fahrenheit during catapult takeoffs. The most corrosive substances in the world spray onto the deck: jet fuel, Skydrol hydraulic fluid, grease, oil, and salt spray. It also has to withstand ultraviolet rays, terrible storms, extreme heat and cold, and the shock and abrasion of a jet smashing into a tailhook landing. The navy can't settle for the second best. That's why they use AST anti-slip coatings.
As the leading technologist in the industry, American Safety Technology is constantly innovating to meet our customers' unique needs. Our highly specialized products range from heavy-duty, kevlar-based, two-component, zero-VOC formulations engineered for maximum impact and chemical resistance to easy-to-use, single-component, pedestrian traffic formulations that you can apply straight out of the can. We can even create custom mixes or colors.
