Swiss GriP is a premium quality, transparent dual component polyurethane coating. Our Swiss-made coatings have been specifically designed to eliminate slipping risks on a wide range of surfaces, in wet and dry conditions. Because Swiss GriP is a water-based coating, it does not damage the surface it is applied onto and creates a long lasting, protective layer on the surface.
Swiss GriP is a premium quality, water-based non-slip coating. Anti-Slip Treatment is a friendlier term for an etching or acid treatment. As you might suspect, etching and acid is a corrosive substance and creates tiny cracks in the surface. In many cases, it breaks the seal of a tile. This is why anti-slip treatments often discolour the surface and make cleaning difficult. Moreover, anti-slip treatments often perform poor in wet conditions. Swiss GriP is a coating and seals and protects the surface it is applied onto. Moreover, Swiss GriP is certified in the Australian Standard for slip-resistance (AS 4586 and AS 4663) by CSIRO. So if you are looking for a durable and functional non-slip solution, Swiss GriP is the way to go. Learn more about the differences here.
Swiss GriP creates a durable non-slip finish on top of the surface and increases the surface-area. Our patented solution has a soft non-slip particle integrated in the coating. This prevents aquaplaning and assures you are always in direct contact with the surface, even when the surface is wet. So unlike etching solutions and anti-slip treatments, Swiss GriP does not alter or damage the surface it is applied onto. Instead, it creates a durable and protective non-slip seal.
Certified by CSIRO
Swiss GriP is the only independently certified non-slip coating. No the non-slip solution has been tested and certified by so many institutions and experts like Swiss GriP. In Australia, Swiss GriP is certified by CSIRO with a P5 Slip Resistance Value (SRV) in accordance to the Australia Standard for Slip Resistance (AS 4586). Moreover, our coatings are also certified by institutions like TÜV, EMPA, Satra Technology and Falcao Bauer (ASTM).
Yes, Swiss GriP is the only non-slip coating which has been independently certified in the Australian Standard for Slip Resistance (AS 4586-2013) by CSIRO with a P5 Slip Rating Value. Nothing beats science and that is why Swiss GriP provides the best slip resistance, even in wet conditions. Our certifications include:
- CSIRO Australia. Certified in accordance to AS 4586-2013. P3, P4 and P5 slip-ratings.
- EMPA, Switzerland. Certified in accordance to R 9729. Class GB2.
- TÜV Rheinland, Germany. Certified in accordance to DIN 51097 and DIN 51130. Class C and R11.
- Satra Technology, UK. Certified in accordance to BS 7976. Class 50, low slip potential
- Falcao Bauer, Brazil. Certified in accordance to ASTM E 303/93. SRV in wet conditions: 0.55. SRV in dry conditions: 0.68.
- LG, South Korea. Certified in accordance to the South Korean Standard for Slip-Resistance.
Due to our exceptional adhesion and chemical resistance, Swiss GriP beats any competitor in terms of slip-resistance and durability. The durability of a finished application depends on factors such as traffic intensity as well as care and maintenance.
Swiss GriP performs excellent in the Australian Accelerated Wear Test. After a 5000 cycle test with a heavy duty scotch pad, the slip-resistance of Swiss GriP is only reduced by 17%. This test replicates high traffic over a long period. Many tiles and other materials see a reduction of over 65% in the same test.
Low traffic areas like bathrooms can expect to last more than five years. Outdoor and high traffic areas can be expected to last around three to five years. To ensure the durability of your Swiss GriP Coating is maximised, we recommend to implement a simple and regular maintenance program. Let us know in case of any questions about your specific area.

Because Swiss GriP does not alter or damage the surface it is applied onto, it can even be used on sensitive surfaces like marble and slate.
Swiss GriP is a water and dirt repelling coating and has excellent chemical resistance. Therefore, a Swiss GriP surface is easy to maintain and clean. We have tested and approved the use of a wide range of commercial detergents and disinfectants which are used in the hospitality and the care sector.
Swiss GriP can be cleaned with a range of tools like microfibre mops, brushes, pressure washers and cleaning machines. To ensure the life of your Swiss GriP Coating is maximised, download our Technical Advice Care and Maintenance Instructions, and implement a regular maintenance program.
Do not use harsh or aggressive substances like acid, solvents (e.g. methylated spirits, alcohol, acetone, etc.), chlorine (bleach), sodium, or detergents which are abrasive. Dilute concentrated detergents in accordance to the manufacturer's instructions.
