Anti-Slip Acid Etching Floor Coating / Floor Preparation

What is Acid Etching?

The idea is a solution of hydrofluoric acid will eat into a floor surface and ‘etch’ it and provide a level of slip resistance afterwards. The acid used is generally a hydrofluoric acid, a rather nasty substance, which if applied correctly can eat into resins, concretes, marble etc.

But Acid Etch also eats into eyes, skin, lungs and so on. It’s nasty stuff!

The leaflet at the HSE website at describes it further.

The serious disadvantage of Acid Etch

When a floor is etched it will roughen the surface up by a small amount by creating small pinholes and making the surface look like an Alpine Mountain Pass but in miniature. But in reality the valleys are so small that they will soon fill in with dirt, floor waxes etc. and as a result the PTV will again be too low to be safe.

Subsequently, suppliers of acid etch floor coatings then recommend adding a dash of hydrofluoric acid to the cleaning water to maintain the micro porous finish; the result is a safe floor but with

Cleaning staff constantly subjected to a very nasty acid

with long term health effects is it a wise choice?

The extract below is from the HSE datasheet; now ask yourself, how many cleaners have you ever seen doing this or employers supplying the facilities to do the items listed below?

If you don’t want to be subject to prosecution for risking the health of your employees (or your self) then we might recommend you avoid acid etching
