SlipNOT® products can be cleaned by most standard agents, please contact a sales representative for more information.  Clean slip resistant products on a regular basis to prevent any build up or residue that can cause the peaks and valleys to smooth over.  Small debris can be dislodged easily with compressed air or a soft bristle brush.  If the SlipNOT® material is subject to excessive greasy or oily environments, significant grime or sludge can fill in the valleys between the peaks of the SlipNOT® surface (in effect smoothing over the SlipNOT®), it requires cleaning with a stiff bristle brush or power washing to bring back the optimal surface texture.

Steel Surface Finish

Care for Steel Products:

  • Mill finish steel SlipNOT® products will rust if exposed to moisture or humidity.
  • Material should be primed and painted or hot dipped galvanized to prevent corrosion.
  • Hot dipped galvanizing is the ideal method for corrosion resistance.
  • Use a power washer and stiff bristle brush to remove any debris lodged in peaks and valleys.  Note: steel products should be protected due to corrosive nature.
  • Organic based stains, such as grease or oil, can be removed with standard organic solvents.  The most common is commercially available brake cleaner but any organic solvent will most likely work.  Some scrubbing may be required to remove grease buildup.
  • Detailed information available upon request.

Stainless Steel Surface Finish

Care for Stainless Steel Products:

  • Be aware that certain organic enzyme and alkaline based cleaning agents can blacken the stainless steel which will bleed through the SlipNOT® surface layer as well
  • The stainless steel SlipNOT® is our most chemically resistant product and withstands nearly all other cleaning or environmental situations from alkaline to acidic.  Also, the stainless steel products can be passavated to remove welding discolorations like stainless steel.
  • Organic based stains, such as grease or oil, can be removed with standard organic solvents.  The most common is commercially available brake cleaner but any organic solvent will most likely work.  Some scrubbing may be required to remove grease buildup.
  • Use a power washer and stiff bristle brush to remove any debris lodged in peaks and valleys.
  • Should the stainless steel product be contaminated with surface rust, it is generally recommended that this be removed with diluted muriatic acid.  Concentrations should not exceed 1 part acid to 1 part water.

Aluminum Surface Finish

Care for Aluminum Products:

  • Material should be handled with care.
  • Aluminum is a soft alloy that can be damaged if not handled properly.
  • Organic based stains, such as grease or oil, can be removed with standard organic solvents.  The most common is commercially available brake cleaner but any organic solvent will most likely work.  Some scrubbing may be required to remove grease buildup.
  • SlipNOT® recommends that a stiffened bristle brush used in conjunction with a power washer – too much pressure can lead to degradation of the SlipNOT® surface.
  • Standard Aluminum cleaning products such as Tri-Sodium Phosphate solutions work well.
