Liquiguard Technologies, Inc., a manufacturer of water-based eco/bio friendly coating solutions, introduces a revolutionary water-based non-slip coating solution to its portfolio to eliminate slipping and movement in PVC and rubber-backed mats.

Online PR News – 01-December-2012 – Fort Lauderdale, FL – Slippage, movement, curling and bunching has historically presented a problem with commercial mats. This is a recurring issue with lighter PVC-backed matting in smaller sizes such as 2’ x 3’ or 3’ x 5’ or in runners, but occurs in a wide variety of mats including entrance mats and many anti-fatigue mats. This problem is a nuisance to many businesses who are forced to frequently reset the mats in their proper resting place. In many cases, mats that shift and bunch up can create a trip and fall hazard as well, creating injuries, liabilities and significant settlement costs for many business.

GripCote-X, a revolutionary product from Liquiguard Technologies, Inc. is a water-based, semi-viscous coating that has been developed to solve this problem by holding mats down to any and all substrates without the use of adhesives. It can be used on concrete, hard smooth surfaces such as tile or marble, and is most effective on the most problematic surface of all, broadloom carpet. GripCote-X does not transfer or leave residue on the contacting surface and features just enough tack to hold the mats down firmly in place but still easy to lift, clean and replace at any time.

GripCote-X is the perfect anti-slip accessory for a variety of mats. It is applied easily by soft bristle brush, roller or spray and is non-toxic, making it a simple Do-It-Yourself non-slip solution appropriate for homeowners, small businesses or larger businesses looking for a long-term and environmentally friendly solution to the problem of mat movement. For washable mats, GripCote-X will withstand approximately 20 wash cycles before needing reapplication.

“After extensive testing, American Floor Mats found GripCote-X to be the superior anti-slip solution for floor mats constant sliding on both hard surfaced and carpeted floors. We confidently recommend it to our customers, especially those that frequently handle their mats for cleaning.”
