Triflex Friction Plastic

Triflex Friction Plastic is a cold liquid applied, exceptionally fast curing, anti-skid coating and marking system used primarily to add a heavy duty, coloured, surfacing finish. Originally designed for highway use and used extensively on the German autobahn, the system can be applied to external car parking areas, walkways and cycle lanes. The 2 component system is easy to apply and contains no solvents or isocyanates, being totally cold applied no hot works are required throughout the installation, removing health and safety risks usually associated with hot applied thermoplastic and other solutions.

Triflex Friction Plastic is based on the most advanced PMMA resin technology and is compatible with a wide range of substrates. It also rapidly cures even at very low temperatures making it the ideal solution all year round for shopping centres, retail parks, airports, offices and cycle lanes which require a solution that can be installed quickly with minimal disruption.
