Creates an invisible traction that helps reduce slip & fall accidents. Designed to enhance the natural grip/traction on slippery flooring. Targeted for use in homes, restaurants, hotels,retail stores, office buildings, factories and industrial facilities. Works on most natural surfaces. For use on tile or terrazzo floors, porcelain bathtubs, showers, garage floors and pool/spa areas. Environmentally safe & easy to use. Liquid Traction is a clear, liquid treatment that increases the coefficient of friction (COF) and the safety of wet surfaces. What is Liquid Traction?
Function All natural materials such as concrete, ceramic, granite, terrazzo, quarry tile, slate, porcelain tile and bathtubs have a natural void. The larger the void, the more slip-resistant the surface of that material will be because the void creates a tread for you to walk on. When ceramic or glazed tile, as well as porcelain, are coated to create a shine finish, the void is greatly diminished. The coating fills in the natural void up to 70%. When dry, the filled void goes unnoticed. However, when the surface is wet, the water fills in the remaining 30% creating a slippery floor. Liquid Traction treats the surface of your floor or fixture by bringing back the natural void through the treads in the surface material. When a floor or bathtub is wet, you will remain surefooted!
Product Details Increases the coefficient of friction, creating more tread on wet, damp or slippery surfaces Simple application with a sponge mop or handheld sponge Once applied, clean the surface regularly (avoid waxing) Minimal maintenance/upkeep Suggested re-application: 1-year warranty on all applied surfaces
Industry Standards The industry standards in place by UL relating to COF (coefficient of friction), are as follows: .35 to Unusually dangerous .40 to.49 – Dangerous .50 to Relatively safe .60 and above -- Very safe (ADA Standard) To guard against slip and fall accidents, OSHA recommends a static coefficient of friction.5 or greater The American with Disabilities Act specifies.6 or greater
Slip & Fall Accident FACTS 1.Slip & fall accidents are ranked second to motor vehicle accidents in annual injuries & deaths. 2.Approximately 8-million slip & fall accidents are reported each year with over 500,000 requiring hospitalization, and 19,000 fatalities in North America. 3.These accidents compile nearly half of all home accidents. 4.They are the number one cause of accidents in super markets, restaurants, hotels and other public buildings. According to the National Restaurant Association, slip & fall accidents are the greatest source of general liability claims within the restaurant industry. 5.The vast majority of tile floors, bathtubs and showers using OSHA or other industry standards prove that most establishments achieve a rating of “dangerous” or “very dangerous”. 6.According to an AARP report, slip & fall accidents represent 66% of injuries to those over 65, and 75% of the accidental deaths to this age group, proving particularly hard on the elderly. 7.Falls account for approximately 15% of job site accidents, and between 12-15% of total worker’s compensation costs.
Slip and Fall Statistics: The #1 cause of accidents in homes, hotels, restaurants, and public buildings (70% occur on flat and level surfaces). The #2 leading cause of injuries throughout the United States (Auto accidents are #1). The #2 cause for Workers Compensation & Liability claims (40% of all claims paid out).

Application Process: 1.Clean & rinse area thoroughly. 2.Apply Liquid Traction liberally onto surface & spread over using a sponge mop or handheld sponge. 3.Reference below chart for suggested processing times for each surface type. Surface should remain wet during processing time. – Ceramic Tile: 8-10 minutes – Porcelain Tile: 8-10 minutes – Concrete: 5 minutes (2nd application may be required). Do NOT use on stamped/colored concrete. – Quarry: minutes – Terrazzo: 6-8 minutes (2nd application may be required) Visit our website for additional application details. 4.Use clean, wet sponge mop or handheld sponge and thoroughly wash over treated area to remove any residue. All residual product must be removed immediately after application. Area is immediately ready for use. After Treatment Care: 1.Clean normally with any cleaner. 2. Do NOT wax. Wax fills-in the enhanced tread created by Liquid Traction. Suggested Re-Application Timeline/Warranty: All treated surfaces = 1 year warranty. Some surfaces may initially require a 2 nd application. Not for use on marble, granite, colored/stamped concrete, acrylic or any like surface.
