Our exclusive oven-cured recoating process utilises materials that often exceed the original manufacturers’ specification and have been proven to offer an extended working life when compared with many other recoating processes.
Healthcare and Hygiene
We have developed several methods of applying abrasive coatings to plastic mouldings and pads used in healthcare and hygiene products. Our expertise extends from facial and foot exfoliation in the healthcare and beauty sectors, to hygiene rollers and medical pads. Production is undertaken by skilled operatives in a clean room environment using specialist machinery. The highly developed abrasive coating for application to plastics has been produced following an extensive programme of research, development and prototype work.

We have designed and developed a range of Stainless Steel and GRP anti-slip flooring products under the registered trade name TreadSafe®. These offer a cost-effective, long-term solution to slip and trip hazards in both industrial and public access areas. The range comprises of stair treads, landing covers, flat decking sheets, ladder rung covers, grating and tactile floor tiles. They can be fitted to a variety of surfaces including chequer-plate, concrete, metal grille, steel and wood using adhesive and /or mechanical fixings. Applications include internal and external use on floors, stairs, ramps, walkways, external fire escapes and ladders. Both the Stainless and GRP product ranges are offered in a choice of standard and custom sizes, colours, abrasive grit sizes, fire resistance and photo-luminescent paint finishes.
We offer a range of non-slip coating services including the coating/recoating of loom rollers, felt coverings and the manufacture and supply of card grinding fillet.
Card grinding fillet is specifically designed for grinding and polishing applications and can be supplied with or without grooves applied to the surface.
