Problem
sup-scivoloseThe floors placed outdoor, or near the entrances of buildings or in places in frequent contact with water, are often slippery and therefore dangerous for those who walk there.

However, it is not always possible to use non-slip ceramic coatings and for this reason the need arises to adapt the existing flooring to the anti-slip parameters that make it safe.

CLEANING

The cleaning the slippery surfaces is necessary in order to remove all the pollutants present and allow the anti-slip treatment to work directly on the material.

Moreover, thanks to the cleaning, the surface is prepared for the treatment by opening the cortical porosity.

Below is a table with a description of the types of cleaning.

OLD FLOORINGS

• Apply BASICOdiluted to 20%
Work it for a few minutes
Remove the whole with vacuum cleaner
• Applicare ACIDOal 50%
Work it for a few minutes
Remove everything with wet vacuum

NB. Treatments made with epoxy products must be removed with appropriate mechanical systems

NEW FLOORING

Apply ACIDOto 50%
Work it for a few minutes

SOLUTION FOR OUTDOOR AND INDOOR

The ANTISCIVOLO treatment proposed by CIR acts directly on the material, opening the porosity and creating, in contact with water, a set of microsuckers that greatly increase the friction with the material.

The treatment can be done on surfaces in: cotto – polished stone – stoneware – ceramic.

SLIPPERY SURFACE

• Pour evenly ANTISCIVOLOpure
Leave it to act for about 25 minutes
• Remove everything with wet vacuum
Rinse with clean water

NB. Verify the treatment action on a wet surface – Highly resistant treatment

MAINTENANCE
The surfaces treated with ANTISCIVOLOhould remain as clean as possible, in order to prevent that dirt inteferes with the treatment, because of the decreasing of the coefficient of friction.

DAILY MAINTENANCE: PULI PAV

CIR SOLUTION ADVANTAGES
The solution proposed by CIR allows to work directly on the material, with longer lasting results and aesthetically less invasive, compared to the black strips glued on the materials usually used as a non-slip solution.
THE TECHNICIAN RECOMMENDS
Before carrying out the treatment on the entire surface, it is advisable to evaluate, through preliminary tests, the correct contact times between the product and the surface, in order to evaluate the final result.
