PPG Anti-Slip Safety Flooring Systems SFT625 is a one-component modified epoxyanti-slip floor and deck coating engineered to resistheavypedestriantraffic. This coating is easy to apply and adheresto concrete, metal, and wood surfaces.
SFT625 is fire retardantwhen dry.It resistsoil, gasoline, acids, caustics, and most solvents. Sinceit’sa one-component product it may be resealedand saved for future use.

Coating performance is proportional to the degree of surface preparation. Refer to the Product Data/Application Instructions for the specific primer being used for surface preparation specifications. Concrete and primed concrete surfaces must be clean and dry and free of contaminants such as dust, dirt, grease, or oil. It is important that a suitable moisture barrier is in place for slabs on-grade. If a moisture barrier is not in place, seasonal variations in ground moisture can cause excessive hydrostatic pressure regardless of results measured prior to coating application.
New/Bare Concrete — Refer to SSPC-SP 13/NACE No. 6 surface preparation of concrete for detailed information regarding surface preparation of concrete. In general, concrete must have sufficient profile to achieve satisfactory adhesion of primer and topcoat. Concrete must be in sound condition and free of all coatings, curing compounds, oil and other contami-nants. New concrete must cure a minimum of 28 days prior to application of any coatings. Concrete can be abrasive blasted (ASTM D4259) or mechanically abraded to achieve a profile equal to 60 grit sandpaper or coarser. Moisture vapor trans-mission should be 3 lbs. or less over a 1000 sq. ft. area during a 24 hour period, measured and confirmed through a calcium chloride test (ASTM F1869). Concrete should have a minimum surface tensile strength of 300 PSI verified by a pull-off adhesion test. Should concrete not meet moisture vapor trans-mission or tensile strength requirements, contact your local PPG representative for guidance. Consult the following ASTM methods: ASTM-4263 – plastic sheet method for checking moisture in concrete; ASTM 4258 standard practice for cleaning concrete; ASTM 4259 standard practice for abrading concrete; ASTM 4260 standard practice for etching concrete.
Previously Painted Concrete — Old coatings and concrete must be in sound condition. Surfaces must be clean and dry and free of all contaminants such as dust, dirt, grease, or oil. Old coatings must be uniformly abraded to achieve satisfactory adhesion. Apply a test patch to the abraded surface and allow to cure a minimum of one week before testing adhesion. If adhesion is poor, or if the old coatings are peeling, chipping, or are otherwise in poor condition, remove the coatings down to bare concrete and prepare the bare concrete as shown above.

The best anti-slip characteristics are obtained when the product is rolled. Do not thin. Use a smooth napless solvent resistant roller.
Use a modest amountof downward pressure.It is important thatthe rolled profileexposethe maximumamount of non-slip aggregate. If aggregateis not properly exposed, the coating may becomeslipperywhenwet.
Do not over-roll or press down too heavily.Make surethat coatingis even withoutany thickpuddles. If applied too heavily the coatingmay not cureproperly.
Drying timewill varywith temperatureand humidity.Protect exteriorapplicationsfromrainfor at least 24 hours. For full cure, protect application fromextended exposure to water,oil and chemicals for 5 to 7 days.
Sprayed applicationswill result in a uniform appearance with good non-slip characteristics. SFT625 may be sprayed with spray equipment usinga 1/4 inch opening spraytip. Various sprayers is availablefor grit containing coatings. Consult with your equipment manufacturer.
SFT625 may be applied with a smooth trowel suchas a flexible plasterer’sfinishing trowel. Use a trowelabout 4 by 12 inches.
Pour a “strip” of SFT625on the surfaceapproximately 2′ long and 6″ wide.
Hold the trowel at a 45° angle to the surface and spread with a full motion. Reversethe angle of the trowel for an opposite stroke. Pull the material towardyou. Tocover corners,etc. pull straight strokes using materialon the trowel.
SFT625 should be kept clean to ensure that its non-slip safety aspect is maintained. Clean with an all-purpose cleaner/ degreaser. Scrub the anti-slip surface with a thick bristled brush or floor machine. Rinse with clean water and let dry. SFT625 is extremely durable; however, frequently traveled areas may require occasional touch up.
