TWO Slip Resisting Additives in ONE Quarry Tile

XA-Abrasive™ silicon carbide embedded in the surface combined with a metallic additive through-the-body makes XA-Abrasive a one-of-a-kind slip resisting ceramic quarry tile with a dynamic coefficient of friction ≥.70 – well above the industry guideline of .42. The silicon carbide and the metallic additive work together to help keep your floor safe from the effects of spills, moisture, extreme temperatures and heavy traffic. Use XA-Abrasive™ in the most extreme environments like fast paced restaurant kitchen floors or anywhere durability and slip resistance are essential.

Use XA-ABRASIVE in These Areas • Heavy Traffic • Areas Subject to Spills & Moisture • Places with Extreme Temperatures • Where Added Durability is a Must • Indoors and Out in Any Climate • Anywhere Slip Resistance is a Concern.
