What is NEV-R-SLIP
NEV-R-SLIP is an invisible etching treatment designed to prevent slipping on
tile floors exposed to large amounts of water. Best results are achieved in wet areas
where there is barefoot traffic, like showers, change rooms, pool decks, hot tub or hydro
bathrooms and spas. NEV-R-SLIP is especially effective in bathtubs.
NEV-R-SLIP works on hard mineral surfaces like ceramic, quarry, and porcelain tiles, concrete and
terrazzo indoor or outdoor. NEV-R-SLIP reacts with the silica composition in
the surface to gently roughen it up. Once the surface has been "etched", the
effect of hydroplaning has been reduced dramatically.
NEV-R-SLIP has been in the market for over 20 years and has been used in thousands of installations
with excellent results. There is only a slight visible difference in surfaces treated. The
color of the treated surface will not be altered, but will take on a satin-like finish. A
treatment will last up to 3 years on a tile floor and 5 years in a bathtub. The traction
created with NEV-R-SLIP will meet or exceed ASTM Standards.
NEV-R-SLIP Reaction on a Tile
NEV-R-SLIP is effective when applied to a tile floor and allowed to sit on the
surface for a short period of time. During this time silica is removed from the surface of
the tile which leaves thousands of microscopic cups in the tile. This reaction acts like millions of tiny
suction cups on the surface. When a foot is pressed onto the wet surface the sole forces
the water out and a partial vacuum creates slip resistance on the tile. The same reaction
is effective in Bathtubs
NEV-R-SLIP requires no down
time as applications are normally done after hours to avoid interruptions in your day. A
surface treated with NEV-R-SLIP is easy to clean and very durable, requiring
no special maintenance.

History of NEV-R-SLIP
NEV-R-SLIP has been used favorably for over 20 years as the only method of
slip resistance alteration to tile floors. Until recently acid etching was the only method
in which existing surfaces could be altered to increase the friction level. With the
development of new technology and the introduction of AST in our floor safety line, we
are finding NEV-R-SLIP is now used more for the purpose of alternate pricing
when quoting, and for competitive comparisons.
is a key product in our line due to the outstanding results it has on
