Cactus Trials: Applying PMMA-Based Anti-Skid by Hopper Gun
The rapid curing Anti-Skid Wearing Layer is already delivering effective non-slip surfaces offshore. Our trials explored whether we could minimise down-time even further.
The rapid curing, highly abrasion resistant coating is already being used by the biggest Oil and Gas operators on offshore decks, lay down areas and walkways.
PMMA-Based Anti-Skid Wearing Layer is a 2-component, flexibilised, pigmented and filled PMMA-based (polymethyl methacrylate) surfacer. It delivers maximum abrasion resistance and maximum slip resistant properties.
It’s rapid curing capabilities ensures minimal downtime for operators: the Anti-Skid solution is walkable in 30 minutes and fully cures in 1 hour.
The PMMA-Based non-slip coating is solvent free – making it particularly ideal for use offshore. It can be applied in air temperatures as low as -10°C and as high as 35°C and is particularly suitable for areas subject to extremely heavy-duty or high-frequency traffic.
It’s already protecting and ensuring non-slip surfaces on offshore structures. We decided to trial application by gravity-fed hopper gun to see if an anti-skid surface can be achieved even quicker and to larger surface areas.
Here’s how our trials went:
As you can see, the trials showed that PMMA-Based Anti-Skid Wearing Layer can be applied successfully by gravity-fed hopper gun: meaning large areas can be coated quickly and effectively, with minimal overspray and minimal waste.
