On Wednesday 14th June 2017, London's worst fire for at least a generation began. The Grenfell Tower fire disaster went on to be not just a tragedy for those residents of the block who lost loved ones but for the wider community. Indeed, the public inquiry that followed the events looked into many controversial matters that surrounded the blaze. Not least amongst its considerations was the external cladding that had been fitted to the tower, as well as the much-documented complaints that residents had made to their landlord about safety issues.

FP 2177 is one of our most popular anti-slip coatings for paper and board products, providing a high coefficient of friction and several beneficial secondary qualities to treated substrates. Anti-slip 2177 is used for two main applications:
Anti-slip tray mats, such as those in the image below, are used in their millions every day by airlines throughout the world. They require an adhesive that is food safe, non-allergenic and anti-slip/skid proof to prevent food trays moving when an aircraft encounters turbulence. They need a high performance, cost effective anti-slip coating that will not slip at angles up to 45°.
Formulated polymers non-slip coatings are applied to heavy duty paper to produce pallet liners which allow the safe shipment of goods. The non-slip pallet liners reduce damage and maximise the efficiency of moving items from one place to another in many types of industry.
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.
