Silvagrip is fabricated with the most sophisticated technical alloys. These metals hold a matrix of sharp ceramic abrasives, with a similar hardness to diamonds. Silvagrip is very ductile and capable of being shaped or bent, but at the same time giving you the strongest and hardest non-skid wear surface.

The non-skid material is an aluminum / ceramic blend of molten metal and ceramic, applied to a backing with adhesive and a protective plastic liner. Simply pull the plastic liner and apply to your deck or walkways.

Silvagrip is replacing the traditional epoxy non-skid coatings, and is used and approved by the US Navy and workboats alike. Applications are endless for indoor and outdoor uses.
