CNT Epoxy Deck Coating

TESLAN® 1105 Nano Non-Skid

Product Description

TESLAN® 1105 Nano Non-Skid is a single coat solution designed for the protection of steel and metallic substrates. This solvent-based, three-component epoxy coating incorporates carbon nanotubes (CNTs) together with sacrificial zinc and non-slip aggregate to provide enhanced durability, maximized corrosion protection, and anti-slip properties. When colors or markings are needed, TESLAN® 1105 Nano Non-Skid can be directly top coated with various accent colors utilizing our patented 2 x 1 WET EDGE application process. Use only in conjunction with recommended TESLAN® Topcoat systems.

What Sets TESLAN® 1105 Nano Non-Skid Apart from Traditional Epoxy Deck Coatings

Traditionally, non-skid deck coatings for offshore work areas consist of an epoxy film and an aggregate. The epoxy is applied to the deck, then the aggregate is manually cast across the epoxy while it’s still wet. This process is then repeated multiple times to build up thickness and aggregate content to maximize the non-slip properties of the coating. However, this process is often long drawn-out, only to achieve results that can barely pass as “effective”. Tesla NanoCoatings knew there had to be a better way to achieve a coating with non-skid properties that really worked- so began development on the world’s first non-skid carbon nanotube epoxy deck coating.

Non-skid CNT epoxy deck coatings are a type of coating that contains carbon nanotubes (CNTs). These tiny, cylindrical structures are known for their strength and durability, making them an ideal ingredient for deck coatings.

For offshore oil and gas operators falling behind on their maintenance schedules, TESLAN® 1105 Nano Non-Skid is the perfect solution. It adapts the physical benefits of carbon nanotubes to provide the toughest, safest, and most economical epoxy deck coating system available in today’s market. Pre-mixed with a high quality aggregate, applying a non-skid protective epoxy coating has never been easier for offshore operations. This revolutionary coating is the first of its kind to effectively harness the power of zinc for cathodic protection without sacrificing the strength of the epoxy.

TESLAN® 1105 Nano Non-Skid is a standalone, single coat applied solution. When colors or markings are needed, it can also be directly top coated with various accent colors utilizing patent pending 2 x 1 WET EDGE application process. WET EDGE allows coatings to applied wet on wet.

The productivity of TESLAN® 1105 Nano Non-Skid is unmatched. A single-step coating with no broadcast required makes for quick application and return to service in less than a day compared to several days for multiple coat systems.

Non-Skid Deck Coatings in an Offshore Setting

Offshore work areas are often exposed to wet and slippery conditions, increasing the risk of accidents and injuries. A non-skid or non-slip coating provides traction and improves grip, reducing the chances of slips, trips, and falls. For this reason, many offshore industries are subject to safety regulations that require the use of non-skid or non-slip coatings on walking surfaces. By using an effective coating, companies can ensure compliance with these regulations and avoid penalties or legal issues. So, what exactly makes an effective non-skid deck coating?

Offshore environments can be highly demanding, with heavy equipment, foot traffic, and constant exposure to the elements. A high-quality non-skid or non-slip coating is designed to withstand these conditions, providing long-lasting protection and maintaining its slip-resistant properties over time. An effective non-skid coating not only provides slip resistance but also acts as a barrier against corrosion for metallic offshore structures, protecting the underlying metal from degradation and extending its lifespan.

Tesla NanoCoatings addresses every facet of the challenges faced in offshore settings with TESLAN® 1105 Nano Non-Skid. A pre-mixed aggregate is evenly distributed throughout the coating, which ensures an even, consistent guard against slip and fall hazards across the entire deck. Carbon nanotubes work together with zinc to deliver equally consistent protection of the metallic substrate underneath by providing a network for electron transfer which spans the entire range of the coating. An epoxy binds each of these key components together to make the application process quick, simple, and familiar.

Overall, an effective non-skid or non-slip protective coating for a metallic structure in an offshore setting enhances safety, protects against corrosion, increases durability, and helps meet regulatory requirements. It is an essential component of maintaining a safe and productive working environment in offshore operations. If you’re looking for a non-skid deck coating that checks all the boxes, look no further than TESLAN® 1105.

TESLAN® 1105: An Award-Winning Non-Skid Deck Coating

Tesla NanoCoatings’ TESLAN® 1105 Nano Non-Skid Deck Coating was awarded with the Corrosion Innovation of 2023 by Materials Performance. Developed to offer the durability and corrosion resistance of carbon nanotubes combined with the anti-skid properties of an aggregate, the 1105 Coating is truly a marvel of modern nanotechnology. While increasing worker safety on high-traffic walkways, it also meets ISO 12944 Offshore Corrosion Standards for maximum benefits. The best part? It applies in just a single coat and can have an additional topcoat applied even while wet to slash downtime.
