Choosing to safeguard the floors in or around your property with a non-skid paint or coating is a responsible decision. But it is very important to make sure you do it effectively. The number one thing to remember is to follow the instructions of the product carefully to get the expected results.
Important steps to follow when applying a non-slip product
Step 1: Read the entire product label
Each product has a particular method of application. So, make sure to read the Technical Data Sheet (TDS) and Safety Data Sheet (SDS) before using any non-slip products for tiles or other surfaces.
Step 2: Consider the safety precautions
Before applying any anti-slip coating, it is essential to check if there are any safety precautions you need to take. This may include wearing specific gear when applying the product or using certain safety equipment.
Step 3: Surface preparation
Every non-slip product has unique steps for preparing surfaces before application. For example, an Epoxy coating for wood floor will require you to clean the surface and test the product before full application.
You can also follow the instructions available on the SlipDoctors website for each product available on the site.

NOTE: Avoid contact with metal and glass surfaces. Remove these items from the area to be treated, or use duct tape to fully cover the surfaces.

Do not set the bottle on countertops, and always use towels on the ground to avoid spills.
