FOOD AND BEVERAGE - Ben and Jerry's
"The Waterbury facility has many flooring/safety issues. First, this facility is old. Second there are perpetual contaminants on the floors - sugar, dairy products, oils, cleaners just to name a few. Our struggle has been finding a product that adheres to older flooring, that can withstand the barrage of liquids and solids, that provides safety to our employees and is highly cleanable. Our first phase project with Chemsol has given us very satisfactory results and we will soon be expanding the product's use into loading bays, other production areas within the facility as well as exterior employee and visitor staircases/walkways. Customer service and responsiveness is top notch as well."
MANUFACTURING - Crown Equipment
"Our tooling processes produce a huge amount of metal shot on our shop floors which gets underfoot and causes our guys to slip around a bunch. We put down some other coatings over the years, but nothing ever lasts - we're pretty rough on our floors here! So far we are pleased with the Chemsol coating. The aggressive texture works for us - it gives the shot space to settle into so our guys aren't rolling around all the time. Very easy to apply. Nice customer service/support - I can always reach somebody over the phone. Great product, great experience!"
DO IT YOURSELF - Quantum Ventures of Michigan
"We chose Chemsol's anti-skid product for use on our new exterior stairwell. In the past we had used the peel -and-stick type of non-skid tape without lasting results. It seemed that during the winter between salting and shoveling the steps the tape would peel and leave behind a disaster in the spring. We were thrilled when we discovered the durability of Chemsol's anti-skid product. We liked that it had the ability to be a more aggressive profile to prevent slip and fall accidents as well as the durability from season to season. We are able to salt and shovel it without damaging coating."
HOSPITALITY - Driftwood Resort
"Obviously, guest safety is a primary concern in the resort business. Our facilities were built in the 50's before ADA, OSHA and all of the modern safety regulations. Our pedestrian ramps have been a long-standing issue. Most of our guests walk around barefoot, so we needed something that creates safety but isn't harmful to bare skin. We had been using these tape strips, which never really solved our slipping problem, plus they wore down quickly & were a pain to apply and re-apply every few weeks. We found your product on-line, the 7175 grade, and saw that it is used in many other wet, barefoot situations. I made a call, and got to speak to actual human being, which is the greatest thing in the world! It was easy to order, shipped quickly and my maintenance staff thought it was simple to apply - piece of cake! Couldn't be happier."
MARINE & AQUATIC - U.S. Navy
"Both the Navy G and the 2500 perform exceptionally well during operations at sea. The caustic environment we see and experience out here combines some pretty aggressive chemicals and environmentals that are tough on coatings. In wet conditions, the non-slip paint performs very well on both walkways and on general use decking including flight decks. It stands up well to heavy punishment from vehicular and aircraft traffic, but most importantly it helps keep the sailors who are walking the deck from slipping and sliding all over the place. The aircraft fluids combined with salt water would cause treacherous conditions on a deck without this non-skid material."
AUTOMOTIVE - Honda Manufacturing of America
Our East Liberty facility is 25 years old. The facility has all sorts of ramped metal floors connecting levels of production areas. Our biggest safety problem is we've a large number of injury claims due to slips & falls on these oily, wet old floors. Everything from broken collarbones to concussions. We have over 2,500 associates roaming nearly 2 million square feet of production flooring; safety is a not a luxury, it's a necessity. Chemsol 2500 represents our first opportunity to totally eliminate this slip hazards at East Liberty - once and for all! We've seen and used tons of other products, but nothing performs and lasts like this stuff. This project is the catalyst to use this technology plant-wide and across our US production platform."
CONSTRUCTION - Walbridge
"Application process was as simple as was promised and the performance has been excellent. Our labor force has gone out of their way to thank us for the added confidence & security they feel when pushing cart loads of conduit, electrical wiring, etc. up steep, wet construction ramps. Our construction site ramps have used up miles of grip tape over the years, which invariably fails after just a few weeks or even days. When you add up the labor, down time & replacement costs of grip tape, the anti-skid coatings paid for themselves in comparison after just a few weeks. My only regret is that I didn't buy more! We will definitely buy more soon."
MUNICIPALITY - Berkley Parks and Recreation
The Berkley ice arena showers presented a variety of headaches for its GM. With hundreds of rec league and high school hockey players showering each week, the existing floors were harboring mold, mildew & fungus. They were having to scrub the floors on an every other day basis just to keep up. In addition, because of these contaminants, the tiles would become slick and dangerous. Our submersible coating instantly solved both of these problems. The non-porous, two-part epoxy protected the tile from buildup while providing a high-friction surface.
