ConformaGrip has been specifically made for application onto chequer plate and other textured surfaces. ConformaGrip is unique because of its soft aluminum backing which has no memory – it can be pressed into place and will retain that shape. The surface of the tape is our standard abrasive tape (P5) and provides outstanding slip resistance. Because of its foil backing, it has excellent fire retardancy. Available in hazard, black and yellow, these tapes can be procured as rolls or die cut pieces to your specifications.
ConformaGrip's class O, dead soft aluminium foil backing has zero stretch tolerances and no memory – it can be pressed into place and will retain that shape. This feature of ConformaGrip makes it ideal for chequer plate and other textured surfaces. Durbar plate, chequer plate, diamond tread are all commonly used for fire exits, walkways, access platforms etc., but contrary to popular belief, they are an extremely slippy surface because of their lack of porosity. Other conventional non slip tapes cannot be used on chequer plate as they rise up when stretched into the valleys.
Excellent Fire Retardancy
One additional benefit of Conformable non slip tape being constructed using a foil instead of plastic base is that this gives it high flame retardancy levels. Conformable safety-grip tape has been tested and certified to CAA FAA specification 8 for use within cockpit areas, for more information please contact our technical sales team.
High Slip Resistance
The abrasive upper surface of ConformaGrip is a conventional abrasive, this results in exceptionally high grip levels (P5) and provides grip even in wet or dirty conditions. The diamond hard mineral in ConformaGrip ensures that it provides outstanding slip resistance.
- Ensure surface is above 10 degrees celsius
- Clean surface with IPA cleaner or other.
- Remove backing from tape.
- Press down by hand ensuring even distribution.
- With a rubber mallet tap along the surface of the tape so that it conforms to the surface.
- For high traffic areas, edge primer can be used to give greater edge protection.
- Tape can be walked out immediately following installation.
