Retail and Distributor Products

The BS5609 marine immersion test is an important pass for our anti-slip tapes. Read about the BS5609 marine immersion test procedure in this blog post.

At Heskins, we take the quality and durability of our products very seriously. We understand that our anti-slip tapes are relied upon in various industries and environments, often in challenging conditions. One of the rigorous tests that our products undergo is the BS5609 marine immersion test, a crucial evaluation that helps us ensure the reliability of our anti-slip tapes even in the harshest of conditions. In this post, we will delve into the details of the BS5609 marine immersion test procedure and how our H3415 coarse resilient anti-slip tape emerged victorious.

The journey back to 2012 marks a significant milestone in our commitment to product excellence. It was during this year that we decided to put our H3415 coarse resilient anti-slip tape to the test, specifically the BS5609 marine immersion test. This test is designed to evaluate how effectively our material performs underwater and, in particular, how durable its adhesion remains in the face of relentless challenges.

The BS5609 test procedure involved applying our H3415 coarse resilient anti-slip tape to an alloy plate. This plate was then securely fixed to a jetty, strategically positioned in a mid-tide location. This setup was carefully designed to subject our tape to the demanding conditions of marine immersion.

Over the course of 13 weeks, our H3415 anti-slip tape underwent a rigorous examination. During high tide (BS5609 section 1), it was continuously submerged in seawater, exposing it to the full force of the marine environment. Then came the test of air exposure at low tide (BS5609 section 2). This phase was crucial in determining how the seawater, or more specifically, the minerals within it, would affect the adhesive properties of our tape once dried on.

A 13-week, real-world test of this nature is the ultimate trial by fire for any product. It’s a comprehensive evaluation that leaves no room for compromise. At the end of this intensive testing period, our H3415 coarse resilient anti-slip tape emerged victorious, and the results were nothing short of outstanding. The adhesive held strong throughout the entire testing phase, proving its resilience and reliability even in the challenging marine environment.
