Chemical Resistant Safety Grip

Product code: CHEM

  • Specifically produced to be our most chemical resistant material
  • Suitable for use in areas that have high chemical exposure
  • Available in 3 grades
  • Overview
  • Colors

Heskins® anti slip tapes already feature high levels of resistance to chemicals, but the potential strength of a chemical to degrade the performance of Heskins® anti slip tape will vary. Common chemicals found in the workplace such as soap, water and certain petrochemicals will not affect the material’s surface. However, in very rare cases an anti slip surface can be submerged in a chemical that is very aggressive. Some of our customers do work with solutions that could be problematic in the performance of an anti slip surface, such as high concentrate MEK, toluene, acids and alkalis, amongst others.

For most applications, Heskins® conventional Safety Grip tape performs to exceptional levels, but in rare cases, there are certain situations that can cause problems:


At present, chemical resistant anti slip tape is only produced in black, but dependent on order quantity, it can be produced in any color matching Pantone or RAL references to suit your needs.


Chemical resistant anti slip tape is available in 3 grades:

  • Standard
  • Coarse
  • X-Coarse with HG adhesive

All 3 have the exact same grit, aluminum oxide, that is used with our general range of anti slip tapes, but use the special chemical resistant resin to bond the grit to the backing film.

Chemical Retention

Some mild chemicals such as cleaning agents mixed with water can be trapped on the surface with no way of escaping, and with the fluids forming in the valleys of the anti slip tape can, over time, damage the resins that hold the abrasive grit on to the plastic film, causing it to shed.

Harsh Chemicals

Heskins® anti slip tape is not designed to withstand harsh chemicals, such as toluene, MEK etc. The chemicals can have a detrimental impact on the resin, affecting the anti slip tapes durability.

What Makes Chemical Resistant Anti Slip Tape Different?

Heskins® modify the upper bonding resin to help prevent problems caused by most harsh chemicals. The resin has been designed to withstand long term exposure to high concentration, harsh chemicals. This has all been done, while upholding performance levels of the anti slip tape, with the same Coefficient of Friction ( grip level measure ) as our range of anti slip tape.
