Non-Skid/PemKote

PemKote™ is a rugged abrasive finish of nickel-aluminum composite which is fused to the metal surface by an exothermic reaction. This process produces an aesthetically pleasing skid resistant coating with extremely high bond strength and excellent resistance to oxidation. Pemkote™ carries a TEN (10) YEAR GUARANTEE, and is available on all Pemko metal thresholds. Pemko highly recommends the use of Pemkote™ for all Barrier-Free Modular Ramps, and as a durable, economical alternative for cast abrasive products. For corrosive applications, request sealant for extra protection.

Pemko’s skid resistant surfaces have been tested to UL410 and meets the requirements of ASTM D 2047 and Federal Speccification P-F-430C.
