Anti-Slip and Anti-Skid

garnet additives and fillers
Garnet can be used as a highly effective anti-slip additive in coatings and paints, increasing the level of surface traction in these products. GMA offers garnet as a cost-effective anti-slip and anti-skid additive for use in commercial and construction applications.

Road Pavement Surfacing

Garnet serves as an anti-slip additive for a wide range of road pavement surfaces, including:

  • Bus, cycle, transit and fire lanes
  • School and pedestrian crossings
  • Taxi & bus stops and pickup areas
  • Carparks

As an anti-skid/anti-slip additive, garnet adds the surface tension needed to improve friction and increase the safety of these surfaces, while also helping to create an extremely durable surface.

Anti-slip surface treatments created with garnet additives can also help with creating clear and colourful demarcations and enhance the fuel and oil-resistance of a road surface. 

Commercial and Industrial Flooring

Garnet can also be used in commercial and industrial flooring scenarios, serving as a broadcast aggregate that adds the requisite surface tension to create a safe and slip-free surface.

After rolling out a floor coating, contractors can broadcast garnet aggregate into the coating, then back roll the floor to embed the garnet in the flooring.
