A car battery manufacturer required a chemical resistant anti-slip finish to the 50% sulfuric acid intake area.

After using several other coating manufacturers’ products without success, PES-CHEM 511 UCEN was chosen as the preferred coating for all sulfuric acid areas on site.

The contractor applying the coating incorporated a #8 grit alumina oxide aggregate into the coating to give an anti slip finish capable of taking heavy forklift traffic and withstanding the highly concentrated acid.


The following are just a few of the many features of PES-CHEM 511 UCEN:

  • Solvent-free epoxy novolac technology
  • Apply to abrasive blast cleaned metallic surfaces
  • Apply to primed concrete surfaces
  • Withstands immersion and contact with:
    • 98% Sulfuric acid
    • 75% Phosphoric acid
    • 36% Hydrochloric acid
  • Incorporate a #8 grit Alumina oxide aggregate to give a hard wearing chemical resistant anti-slip finish for forklift traffic. Foot traffic can use a finer grit such as #36 – #24 size grit.
