- Increasing use of Anti-slip coatings in Marine Decks
Decks are a critical area that is exposed to all elements and also to the wear and tear of foot traffic. They need to be safe to walk, stand, or rush about on especially in the wet. The best way to achieve this is to use an anti-slip (non-slip) deck coating which both protects the surface and helps grip. Non-Slip marine deck paint is ideal for use on maritime vessels, boats, ships, barges & narrowboats where there might be light foot traffic. Perfect for use on floors where spillage or moisture is prevalent, providing strong chemical resistance to the anti-slip finish. Non-Slip Marine Deck Paint is based on a polyurethane enamel resin that provides a strong hard wearing and anti-slip coating once completely dry, with a mirror-like gloss finish to mild steel, wood, and other suitably pruned substrates. Also, Anti-slip coatings spread quickly and easily offering a beautiful, high traction surface due to which it is anticipated to boost in the forecast period.
Challenges –Anti-Slip Coatings Market
- An overcoat of existing coatings
People generally re-coat their walls mostly due to the original coating flaking, bubbling, moving, but may be due to the new coating being worn and tired. One big mistake of many is just trying to overcoat the existing coating to be shiny and ready. Re-Coating will come off as clean as a whistle, thereby demonstrating that the surface was more than likely previously sealed with a surface hardener or silicone sealant, leading to zero penetration of the subsequent coating into the substratum. The new surface should be sealed, whether it is the old paint or the concrete floor itself to show that the fresh paint has adhered to the current coating, but that the original coating has delaminated from the surface, or that the back is coated in anything from big concrete lumps to small surface dust showing the concrete's surface breaking up. Oil, waxes, and contaminants present in the substrate beforehand can also be seen on the back of the sample piece or can often be seen clearly on the concrete surface itself. And again, if it is rising damp, the darkness of the floor from which the coating was just removed will be darker than the concrete already exposed surrounding it. Hence, overcoating of floors will create a hurdle for Anti-Slip Coatings Market in the forecast period.
