Triflex Friction Plastic is a cold liquid applied, exceptionally fast curing, anti-skid coating and marking system used primarily to add a heavy duty, coloured, surfacing finish. Originally designed for highway use and used extensively on the German autobahn, the system can be applied to external car parking areas, walkways and cycle lanes. The 2 component system is easy to apply and contains no solvents or isocyanates, being totally cold applied no hot works are required throughout the installation, removing health and safety risks usually associated with hot applied thermoplastic and other solutions.
Triflex Friction Plastic is based on the most advanced PMMA resin technology and is compatible with a wide range of substrates. It also rapidly cures even at very low temperatures making it the ideal solution all year round for shopping centres, retail parks, airports, offices and cycle lanes which require a solution that can be installed quickly with minimal disruption.

Tough and durable
Triflex Friction Plastic is highly resistant to long term traffic loads, is unaffected by ponding water and is resistant to road salts, petrol, diesel, brake fluid, engine oil, battery acid, de-icing and approved cleaning products.
Highest levels of anti-skid
The inherent high level of skid resistance makes this product the ideal solution for areas prone to slips and requiring maximum levels of anti-skid including pedestrian walkways, footpaths and cycle lanes.
Totally cold applied
There is no risk from hot works during installation as all Triflex materials are applied in a totally cold liquid form, curing to create a tough, extremely durable solution that lasts.
Single process application
Installation time and costs are significantly reduced when compared to multicoat and broadcast systems.
Ultra rapid curing
Exceptionally fast curing, Triflex PMMA products enable areas to remain open during installation, limiting access restrictions and unnecessary disruptions. Installation can be carried out all year round and the system still cures quickly at temperatures down to 0°C.
Triflex Friction Plastic is weather, UV and IR resistant and will not break down when exposed for the long term to direct sunlight.
Solvent and isocyanate free
Triflex Friction Plastic does not contain solvents or isocyanates and poses no fire risk during installation.
