How it Works.

The InvisaTread® family of products helps to protect against the risk of slip and fall accidents at home, at work and at play. InvisaTread® does not require professional application. Simply pour or spray on, let stand and RINSE AWAY! Protection is just that simple.

InvisaTread® has been lab tested to significantly increase slip resistance by raising the coefficient of friction (COF) on wet or dry surfaces without changing the color or apparent texture of most surfaces. Surfaces treated with InvisaTread® are just as easy to maintain as they were before.

We recommend our cleaner / degreaser Traction Wash™ as it is formulated to not leave any residue that might reduce the increased COF. InvisaTread® is not a coating, but rather a safe and effective process that works on most surfaces.

• Bathtubs & Showers • Pool Areas • Entryways • Walkways • Porcelain • Honed Stone • Ceramic Tile • Concrete • Granite • Acrylic • Terrazzo • Slate • Limestone • Glazed Brick • Glass And much more.

InvisaTread® is not suited for Polished Marble, Wood or Vinyl, always remember to test a small hidden area first.

THE MORE YOU KNOW…

Q: How easy is InvisaTread® to apply?

A: It’s as easy as 1-2-3:
1. Clean area first with Traction Wash™.
2. Apply with sprayer, mop or sponge and let stand for 5-15 min. visit : www.flooringsupplyshop.com for more detail
3. Clean and rinse area thoroughly with water

Q: Is there a specific way to clean surfaces treated with InvisaTread®?

A: NO. Surfaces need to be cleaned with products that do not leave a residue. We recommend Traction Wash™

Q: Does InvisaTread® work on marble?

A: InvisaTread® is safe for some marble surfaces but not POLISHED MARBLE.

Q: If my floor is sealed, can I still use InvisaTread®?

A: Yes, InvisaTread® will work through most floor seals and effectively apply the “invisible tread” you need. (May take two applications.)

Q: What if there is grease on my floor?

A: For maximum slip protection, areas need to be thoroughly degreased prior to application. Use Traction Wash™ at a 1:1 mix and let stand for 15 – 20 min to loosen all grease. Grease prone areas need to be maintained clean for maximum traction.

Q: Can I wax over InvisaTread®?

A: NO. By waxing over the InvisaTread®Anti-Slip application, you will probably fill in the “invisible tread” that InvisaTread® Anti-Slip has placed on your floor. A dry buff is recommended to bring out the shine.
