Natural Additives for Anti Skid Paint and Coating Formulations offers a range of powder additives to create bio-based anti skid paint and coating formulations. Our coal is to facilitate the transition from conventional to bio-based by providing innovative and versatile anti slip additive solutions - made entirely from renewable, non-food resources. 

Traditionally, granular particles made from plastic, glass, silica or garnet have been used to anti slip coatings, i.e. textured surfaces – both for functional and design applications. This can now be achieved more efficiently and with a better environmental footprint: with tailored granular particles made from upcycled olive stones. 

Apart from being fully natural, biodegradable and sustainable, the range of anti slip additive for paint ensures a boost in technical properties. In contrast to anti slip additive options made from soft biomasses such as wood, hemp, straw or cork, our non skid paint additive assortment stands out thanks to particle hardness, stability and durability. 

Ultra-Resistant Hydrophobic Anti Skid Paint Additives

We pride ourselves in our innovative approach to anti-slip additives. In addition to our natural particles for anti slip coatings, we offer a fully hydrophobic non skid additive: compact particles in any grain size ranges between 50 and 2000 microns. Marketed under the brand name Olea FP (Functional Powder), this range of non slip additive for paint comes with a coated particle surface. It was developed with the goal of facilitating incorporation into solvent-based (non-waterborne) formulations and to maximize compatibility with different anti skid paint chemistries.  

The durable powder particles are extremely resistant to abrasion and suitable for indoor and outdoor anti slip coatings. Blending of Olea FP anti slip additive granules with natural pigments is made easy thanks to the particles' light beige color. Moreover, Olea FP enhance the performance and durability of diverse porous surfaces due to their light weight (bulk density of 0.5-0.6kg per liter), reactive properties (antioxidant capacities) and adjustable micron ranges.

Especially when used in industrial flooring products, our non slip additive for paint is a highly versatile solution. The particles can be integrated seamlessly in solvent-based and solvent free formulations, and be combined with silica such as white marble or conventional calcium carbonate. Above all, they are an excellent natural substitute for polyurethane or polyethylene beads and therefore contribute to solving the problematic of microplastics.

We recommend the application of our paint grit additive as follows:

  • sand texture paint additive
  • thermal anti skid paint additive
  • cold weather non skid paint additive
  • waterproof anti slip paint additive
  • hydrophobic car paint filler
  • hydrophobic roof coating ingredient

…and others, according to your specific requirement.

Color Variants and Easy Application of Anti Skid Paint Additives

Our micronized functional powders are available in around 15 different color variants. We have developed this range using environmentally friendly pigments in low concentrations. These color particles, marketed under the name Olea Colors, are ideal for semi-liquid coatings for indoor and outdoor use. A variety of design effects is made possible while creating a textured surface with a strong or light anti slip effects.

Any of our non slip additive for paint can be added easily to any liquid or solid paint and coating formulation. When used in high-density coating formulations, the light anti skid paint particles can migrate to the surface to create desired effect. Another option is to scatter them onto the top layer of anti slip coatings once applied to a surface. The degree of anti-slip properties can easily be adjusted through the dose / concentration of non skid paint additive added to the formulation.

Drying and curing of paints and coatings is supported by our anti skid paint additives: in a hydrophobic form, they enhance resistance of your product to humidity. As untreated powders, they disperse well in hydrophilic formulations and can improve the absorption behaviour of certain material chemistries. 

When used in polyurethane coatings, functional powders can contribute to shortened curing times. This also applies for moisture curing formulations such as epoxy-based anti slip coatings.

Anti Skid Paint Additives as Functional Fillers

In fine micron ranges, they are effective bio-fillers and can be combined with coarser grain sizes for texturing purposes.

If you seek to create polymers, paints and coatings with an anti-slip effect, please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance. We gladly help you find the right anti slip additive for paint and coatings. Besides, we support you in making your existing formulations bio-based, environmentally friendly and easy (cost efficient) to recycle.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ): Anti Skid Paint Additives 

1. Which minimum quantities of non skid paint additive do you supply?

We work exclusively with business customers, i.e. industrial users. Our anti skid paint particles are therefore supplied  as palleted batches with standard packaging units of 25kg. Although we offer individual 25kg bags for testing purposes, you will obtain a much better value-for-money when purchasing larger volumes. 

2. Are anti skid paint additives subject to any regulatory framework?

Our non slip additive range is made entirely of safe, natural by-products from the olive and fruit processing industry. Hence, the whole product line is exempt from regulatory frameworks for chemicals such as Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 (REACH). 

3. In which geographical areas do you supply your non slip additive for paint?

Thanks to our global logistics network, we deliver our particles for anti slip coatings worldwide to your doorstep. In certain cases, we market our anti skid paint particles through local resellers or coating applications specialists. Please contact us for further information.

4. Do you produce bespoke grades of your non skid paint additive solutions?

Yes. Apart from standardized ranges, we offer tailored particles for anti slip coatings. To meet nearly any surface texture requirement, we are open to manufacturing the micron size ranges and colors of your choice. 

5. Where do you source your raw materials?

All our natural raw material providers are located in close proximity to our production facility in Southern Spain. Hence, our anti skid paint additive range is made from local by-products by local people. 

6. What is the ecological footprint / CO2 balance of your anti slip additive line?

Numerous criteria have been considered throughout the procurement, production and logistics processes of our anti slip additive for paint. Resource use is kept down to a minimum and power is the main utility consumed in our factory. Due to local sourcing (point 5), we have minimized internal logistics, and we generally use the carbon-friendly seafreight option when exporting our anti skid paint particles overseas. 

7. Is your non skid paint additive available all year round?

Yes. As a leading specialist for natural anti skid paint particles, we strive to fulfill our orders in a timely and 100% reliable manner. Our long-standing market experience and stable procurement conditions allow us to produce large volumes on a continuous basis. Therefore, we can fulfill long-term supply contracts and are pleased to receive recurring orders.
