Anti-Slip Coating For Pallet Sheets

Posted by Phil Morrison on 27-Dec-2017 11:30:00

Anti-Slip coating is used to lock several tiers of products together to make a solid unitised load that you can manually handle. It prevents items from shifting in transit, which leads to increased stability and safety.

The role of the anti-slip coating is to prevent the slippage of cartons, bags, cases, and other items up to a 45-degree angle. The surface is non-porous and non-adhesive, which means it will feed through automatic dispensers easily, no double feeding required.
