What is MEBAC®?

What is MEBAC®?

As you would expect from ‘The First Family in Industrial Flooring Products,’ Harsco Industrial - IKG’s MEBAC® slip resistant surfaces are manufactured to provide the absolute BEST in safety products. Produced using a proprietary arc spray process, we provide a BEST IN CLASS slip resistant surface that is uniform and extremely durable.

Unlike other anti-slip coatings, MEBAC® surfaces are not made up of tape, resin or paint. Instead molten metal is sprayed onto the required metal surface and a grit media, available in different sizes for different applications, is then encapsulated with additional coats of the molten metal.

MEBAC® surfaces have been in use for over three decades worldwide and are produced at our EPA compliant facility in Leeds, Alabama. MEBAC® is available through our nationwide network of sales and representative offices.

Importance of Coefficient of Friction

MEBAC® meets or exceeds these requirements to provide a safe flooring option.

A co-efficient of friction factor of .50 is considered by OSHA to be a safe surface on which to perform work. The American Disabilities Act suggests a factor of .60 for a flat surface and .80 for an inclined surface.
