Asbra Flex-Tred Safety Strip

Instant, self adhesive, slip resistant safety surface

For light duty & temporary commercial applications

Easy Application
Flex-Tred is easy and quick to apply. Prepare surface, peel the backing off and stick down. It’s that simple. No messy glues or separate adhesives to work with. Flex-Tred should be applied anywhere safety is required to reduce the possibility of an accident by slipping or falling.

Technical Data
Flex-Tred is formulated of the highest quality raw materials available. Several individual layers are permanently bonded together to produce a single long lasting heavy duty slip resistant surface. The top layer of near-diamond-hard abrasive grit is secured for long life by a flexible polymeric binder, bonded to durable flexible plastic substrate. The pressure sensitive adhesive with high bonding features is protected by a poly-coated Kraft release paper.

Unique Flex-Tred construction utilising flexible polymeric materials and high quality abrasives provides outstanding slip resistance, appearance, flexibility and durability. Flex-Tred adhesive reaches maximum strength after 4 days at 210C.

Tests
Flex-Tred has been extensively tested in the USA and proven durable under a variety of adverse conditions. Flex-Tred meets or exceeds USA-ASTM-PSATC and MILITARY SPECIFICATIONS covering pressure sensitive adhesive, slip resistant coatings. Government spec MIL-D-17951C (ships), MVSS 302 (Passenger vehicles), Government spec MIL-W-5044C (aircraft).

Environmental Resistance
Flex-Tred is a slip resistant material that produces a durable surface, defiant to most weather conditions. With careful attention to bonding Flex­­‑Tred will endure temperature extremes of -50C to 100C. Special colour formulation enables Flex‑Tred to resist fading and discolouration even after exposure to the sun for long periods of time. Although Flex-Tred can be used externally we recommend that a Asbraloy or Asbrabronz stair tread be considered, as Flex-Tred subject to wet conditions may lift and peel. It is considered suitable for temporary application in these situations.

Custom Die-cutting
Special shapes and sizes can be die-cut for a variety of applications.
