Metal encapsulated abrasive particles are more durable and secured than in polymers, epoxy or resin based nonskid. Our product uses a metal substrate with molten metal and ceramics deposited on the surfaceThe Aluminum/Ceramic blend is a patented product used in Silvagrip®.
By implementing the ceramic into an aluminum alloy, the particles are held securely. The rough application method provides very secure traction. When our molten metal alloy is atomized it hardens, it leaves a very sharp surface with each particle displaying a random structure. Silvagrip® abrasives are encapsulated by molten metal and solidified in position permanently, just as a resin holds its’ particles but our metal alloy doesn’t soften with heat, making Silvagrip® superior in durability via engineering.
