MEBAC® Metal Bonded Anti-Slip Coating
IKG’s Metal Bonded Anti-Slip Coating or MEBAC® is a durable, zero-maintenance coating that can be applied to IKG bar grating, metal plate and customer provided material. MEBAC provides many years of top-performing slip resistance to protected areas and is fast becoming a valuable and essential part of many companies slip and fall prevention safety programs.
The MEBAC Process
Multiple layers of grit encapsulated in arc metal spray are bonded to aluminum, carbon steel or stainless steel substrate to develop a high coefficient of friction under dry, wet and oily conditions. Even when covered with lubricants such as brake fluid and oil, MEBAC provides margins of safety that are unmatched in the industry.
IKG offers five grades of MEBAC non-slip coating, from moderate to extremely aggressive. All grades of IKG MEBAC exceed the minimum 0.60 Coefficient of Friction required by many municipalities.
A Level of Unmatched Safety Performance
Increasingly, many industries are applying MEBAC slip-resistant coating to their metal flooring plates and other grating products where slip resistance is a critical component of their safety program. This includes almost any situation where there is pedestrian or vehicular traffic and the possibility of liquid spills.
