Wanting to understand exactly what these tests do and the test results actually determined, I called Attar and talked to one of the kind employees who took the time to explain to my nonscientific mind what exactly do they do.
We sent them an example of 2 coats of hardwax oil with anti-slip in between the coats on a timber board. From that example they proceeded with the following tests.
The Dry Floor Friction Slip Resistance Test
The Wet Pendulum Slip Resistance Test
The beauty of Whittle Waxes Anti Slip, is that it’s invisible. Although when applied by itself it has a slightly glossy sheen level. We have found that applying it in between the two coats of hardwax oil the sheen levels blend in nicely together. For that reason we prepared the sample exactly in that fashion to be tested for its slip resistance.
Furthermore, it works beautifully over our Colour Tone Stains, as it is clear, it has no effect on the chosen colour. In this case the order of application would be:
Anti Slip can be used on areas other than stairs also. Solvent-free, it can be applied on interior and exterior timber and stone. Anti-slip protection to reduce slipping on any wood. It works particularly well on pre-treated woods that can become very slippery due to moisture, moss, algae and lichen, and on mineral surfaces and stairs. Guarantees a highly resistant micro structure surface finish on the absorbent surfaces named above.
