Allow us to introduce to you our first ‘abrasive’ mop friendly anti-slip tape. We are proud that we have created a mop friendly anti slip tape for use….
Marine anti slip tape is one of our more recent introductions. As Heskins first marine-specific anti-slip product, it is now a flagship material which a lot of our future products will evolve from. While it feels abrasive, it is a different beast to our regular Safety Grip™, featuring S2 rather than aluminium oxide. S2 are small, round glass beads, making it comfortable to walk on, yet still providing adequate slip prevention, even in the most demanding of environments. One benefit we have discovered recently is that it is completely mopped friendly! And aside from our non-abrasives, this is the first abrasive material that can confidently be classed as a mop friendly anti-slip tape. It can be easily cleaned with a mop, without the beads causing damage and shortening the mops life span.
Our abrasive anti-slip tapes, in particular our Safety Grip™ range, will never be mop friendly, simply due to the construction. The aluminium oxide grit is a sharp-edged granule that when applied, is passed through a static bar to ensure the sharpest points are pointing up. To attempt to mop this material would not only end up with a damaged mop but a lot of fibres caught in the anti-slip tape, resulting in, if you are aesthetically inclined, time-consuming removal. The round glass beads on marine anti slip tape allow the mop to go over without any sharp edges catching the fibres, or damaging the mop, ensuring easy cleaning. If you require a mop friendly anti slip tape, then please get in touch to enquire or order. We can offer samples of marine anti slip tape for you to see the quality of the product first hand. Custom options are also an option, as dependent on order quantity we can create our products in a range of colours matching Pantone or RAL references
You can contact us by phone, email, live chat or the contact us form on the site. We would love to hear from you.
Is All Abrasive Tape Kind To The Skin?
Well, simply no, but technically speaking, yes! Our marine anti-slip tape is the first abrasive material that is kind to skin and fabric due to the grit it’s made from, making it the first of its kind! However, the abrasive tape is usually made up of aluminium oxide, which is a very fine grit similar to sandpaper; therefore, it will harm bare skin, and it will tear away any fabrics or materials if not careful.
Is It Okay To Wet Your Grip Tape?
Usually, allowing your grip tape to get repeatedly wet and repeatedly dry could affect the tapes adhesive layer. The adhesive layer helps the tape stay firmly in place, which, when getting wet, could lead it to edge lift. However, our marine anti-slip tape is designed for constantly wet areas in which water will not affect the tape and its non-slip properties essentially being waterproof tape, and our material is also salt resistant making it perfect for areas near the sea!
