American Safety Technologies MIL Spec exterior non-skid deck coatings – one and two component military grade epoxy anti slip coatings withstand the impact of 170 mph fighter jet landings and are resistant to Skydrol hydraulic fluid, oil, grease, caustic chemicals, and some of the world’s harshest weather conditions.
Carrier Flight Decks
Our AST Anti-Slip Coatings were first developed for military use on the decks of America’s aircraft carriers. They have kept US Navy personnel and equipment safe from slips, falls, and skids under the most extreme conditions imaginable for over 94 years.
In what the military terms a “controlled crash,” our coatings are tested and certified to withstand over 15,000 high-impact landings from a 60,000 pound jet fighter, dragging a steel tail hook across the deck at over 170 mph. The exhaust from their after-burners reach 1,800° Fahrenheit during catapult takeoffs. The most corrosive substances in the world spray onto the deck: jet fuel, Skydrol hydraulic fluid, grease, oil, and salt spray. It also has to withstand terrible storms, extreme heat and cold, and the shock and abrasion of a jet smashing into a tailhook landing. The navy can’t settle for the second best. That’s why they use AST anti-slip coatings.
