After receiving several requests from customers for a product to fulfill the requirements of the Health and Safety Executive in terms of wet slip (HSE technical information sheet “Assessing the slip resistance of flooring”) in a consistent and reliable manner, WOODSAFE has been developed. This product combines the wear resistance of our best water based technology with an accurately premixed anti-slip additive mix which has been field trialed and independently tested to confirm its characteristics. This method avoids the difficulties of site use of additives where errors can be made. An additional requirement of the product was to maintain the current visual quality of existing and new floors which has been achieved by the use of transparent materials giving an attractive clear finish.
WOODSAFE is ideally suited for treating new floors but can be used as top coat on previously finished floors providing a suitable physical ‘key’ has been created prior to application
Machine mixing is required to give a uniform result.
WOODSAFE is fast curing two component water based polyurethane top-coat designed specifically for internal wood and vinyl floors in the licensed trade where liquid spillages may occur (rainwater, soft drinks, beer, water etc). Also ideally suitable for any wooden floor where it is essential that the risk of slipping must be kept to an absolute minimum, e.g. stairs, ramps, etc.
WOODSAFE can also be used on floors in public areas, such as transport terminals, where rainwater may enter frequently on foot traffic and liquid spillages occur.
Please note that initial tests should be carried out to prior to full use of the product to ensure compatibility on the chosen floor surface, e.g. vinyl, linoleum, etc.
WOODSAFE offers the following benefits:
- Complies to HSE anti-slip requirements for wet conditions
- Clear formula ~ does not change the appearance of your floor
- Very hardwearing ~ offering excellent durability
- Fast drying ~ approximately 1 – 2 hours (subject to site conditions)
- UV Stable ~ will not yellow on exposure to sunlight
- Good surface adhesion ~ can be used to overcoat most floor finishes
- Easy to apply ~ two components mix together easily and quickly
Pack size 4.5 litre units (in two pack form) includes Hardener
Coverage Approx. 60sm per container
Directions for use:
Add the contents of the hardener bottle directly to this container and mix thoroughly using an electric mixer.
Use immediately and use all the container within three hours, re-mixing before use.
Product should not be used in temperatures less than 10 degrees Celsius. This product is for use as an anti-slip top-coat and should always be used on a sealed floor... In the case of a new it should be sealed with one or two coats of our recommended sealer (Best Finish), before application of WOODSAFE. In all cases make sure the floor is clean, dry and free from contamination prior to application. Mix the resin and hardener thoroughly using an electric hand mixer (do not mix by hand) and allow to stand for approximately one minute prior to application. Apply WOODSAFE evenly using a suitable applicator, taking care to avoid puddles or ridges. It is suggested that a fresh applicator pad is used for each application to avoid transference of partially cured material. When 1st coat is dry, approximately 1 – 2 hours, apply a subsequent coat if necessary... When final coat has been applied, the surface should be allowed to cure for 12 hours (subject to site conditions) prior to commencement of light traffic. The product will continue to cure for 72 hours.
Specification: Maximum 2 coats, 1 coat is usually sufficient.
Coverage: For best results should be approximately 12 metres square per litre. This coverage is offered as a guide only.
Pot Life: Approximately 3 hours when mixed. Do not use after this period.
Keep out of reach of children.
RECOMMENDED MAINTENANCE OF WOODSAFE ANTI-SLIP FLOOR FINISH
The maintenance program below will help ensure the surface of the coated floor will remain in optimum anti-slip condition for as long as possible.
DAILY - Sweep to remove larger debris from surface. Vacuum to remove finer dust and debris.
WEEKLY - Damp mop surface using A.D.GODDARD’s GREEN KLEEN following dilution rates as suggested on the container.
MONTHLY - Machine scrub surface using GREEN KLEEN in conjunction with rotary floor cleaning machine. It is strongly recommended that a brush attachment is fitted to the machine to help prolong the life of the coating and to reduce the chance of the machine ‘stalling’. It is also highly recommended that a ‘wet-vacuum’ machine is used to remove the resultant slurry from the surface once the floor area has been scrubbed.
(Please note that for large floor areas, the use of a scrubber/dryer machine is strongly recommended.)
Recoating of the surface using Wood Safe will be required. For free of charge advice regarding this procedure, please contact us on 01603 424125.
