Natural Additives for Anti Skid Paint and Coating Formulations offers a range of powder additives to create bio-based anti skid paint and coating formulations. Our goal is to facilitate the transition from conventional to bio-based by providing innovative and versatile anti slip additive solutions - made entirely from renewable, non-food resources. 

Traditionally, granular particles made from plastic, glass, silica or garnet have been used to anti slip coatings, i.e. textured surfaces – both for functional and design applications. This can now be achieved more efficiently and with a better environmental footprint: with tailored granular particles made from upcycled olive stones

Apart from being fully natural, biodegradable and sustainable, the range of anti slip additive for paint ensures a boost in technical properties. In contrast to anti slip additive options made from soft biomasses such as wood, hemp, straw or cork, our non-skid paint additive assortment stands out thanks to particle hardness, stability and durability. 

Ultra-Resistant Hydrophobic Anti Skid Paint Additives

We pride ourselves in our innovative approach to anti-slip additives. In addition to our natural particles for anti slip coatings, we offer a fully hydrophobic non-skid additive: compact particles in any grain size ranges between 50 and 2000 microns. Marketed under the brand name Olea FP (Functional Powder), this range of non-slip additive for paint comes with a coated particle surface. It was developed with the goal of facilitating incorporation into solvent-based (non-waterborne) formulations and to maximize compatibility with different anti skid paint chemistries.  

The durable powder particles are extremely resistant to abrasion and suitable for indoor and outdoor anti slip coatings. Blending of Olea FP anti slip additive granules with natural pigments is made easy thanks to the particles' light beige color. Moreover, Olea FP enhance the performance and durability of diverse porous surfaces due to their light weight (bulk density of 0.5 - 0.6 kg per litre), reactive properties (antioxidant capacities) and adjustable micron ranges.

Especially when used in industrial flooring products, our non-slip additive for paint is a highly versatile solution. The particles can be integrated seamlessly in solvent-based and solvent free formulations, and be combined with silica such as white marble or conventional calcium carbonate. Above all, they are an excellent natural substitute for polyurethane or polyethylene beads and therefore contribute to solving the problematic of microplastics.

We recommend the application of our paint grit additive as follows:

  • sand texture paint additive
  • thermal anti skid paint additive
  • cold weather non skid paint additive
  • waterproof anti slip paint additive
  • hydrophobic car paint filler
  • hydrophobic roof coating ingredient

…and others, according to your specific requirement.

Color Variants and Easy Application of Anti Skid Paint Additives

Our micronized functional powders are available in around 15 different color variants. We have developed this range using environmentally friendly pigments in low concentrations. These color particles, marketed under the name Olea Colors, are ideal for semi-liquid coatings for indoor and outdoor use. A variety of design effects is made possible while creating a textured surface with a strong or light anti slip effects.

Any of our non-slip additive for paint can be added easily to any liquid or solid paint and coating formulation. When used in high-density coating formulations, the light anti skid paint particles can migrate to the surface to create desired effect. Another option is to scatter them onto the top layer of anti slip coatings once applied to a surface (also called broadcasting). The degree of anti-slip properties can easily be adjusted through the dose / concentration of non-skid paint additive added to the formulation.

Drying and curing of paints and coatings is supported by our anti skid paint additives: in a hydrophobic form, they enhance resistance of your product to humidity. As untreated powders, they disperse well in hydrophilic formulations and can improve the absorption behaviour of certain material chemistries. 

When used in polyurethane coatings, functional powders can contribute to shortened curing times. This also applies for moisture curing formulations such as epoxy-based anti slip coatings.

Anti Skid Paint Additives as Functional Fillers

In fine micron ranges, they are effective bio-fillers and can be combined with coarser grain sizes for texturing purposes.

If you seek to create polymers, paints and coatings with an anti-slip effect, please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance. We gladly help you find the right anti slip additive for paint and coatings. Besides, we support you in making your existing formulations bio-based, environmentally friendly and easy (cost-efficient) to recycle.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ): Anti Skid Paint Additives 

What is anti-skid paint?

Anti-skid paint is a type of paint that is designed to provide a textured surface that helps to prevent slips and falls. It is often used in environments where surfaces can become slippery when wet, such as swimming pool decks, marine docks, steps, and walkways. The texture in the paint provides traction underfoot, reducing the risk of accidents.

Could you provide typical examples of anti-skid paint?

Anti-skid paint can be categorized based on the different environments it is used in. A common example is non-slip floor paint, designed for broad surface areas like industrial floors or driveways, and enhanced with our natural fruit stone powders for better traction. Another instance is anti-slip paint for metal ramps, which is specifically formulated to withstand heavy traffic and harsh weather conditions. Furthermore, non-slip paint for stairs is an ideal safety measure for both indoor and outdoor staircases. These examples demonstrate the wide range of applications for our eco-friendly, high-performing anti-skid paint solutions.

What can I add to paint to make it non-skid?

To make paint non-skid, you can add certain additives or aggregates to the paint before application. These additives include substances like sand, fine pumice stone, or specific anti-skid additives available in the market. These additives are mixed into the paint to create a textured surface when the paint dries. An example is the natural additives offered by, which are environmentally friendly and effective at creating non-skid surfaces.

Does anti-slip paint work?

Yes, anti-slip paint does work. The textured surface created by the paint provides extra grip, reducing the chances of slipping. It's particularly effective on surfaces that are prone to becoming slippery, such as areas exposed to water or oil. However, it's essential to note that while anti-slip paint can significantly reduce the risk of slipping, it does not eliminate the risk entirely.

How do you make anti-skid paint?

Anti-skid paint can be made by mixing a chosen paint with a suitable anti-skid additive. Here are the steps to do so:

  • Choose your paint: Start with the paint you would like to use for your project. This can be any color or type, although paints designed for outdoor use are generally more durable.
  • Add the anti-skid additive: Mix in the anti-skid additive according to the manufacturer's instructions. Usually, this involves a certain ratio of paint to additive. For example, you might use one part additive to four parts paint, but this can vary.
  • Stir thoroughly: Make sure to stir the paint and additive together thoroughly, ensuring the additive is evenly distributed throughout the paint.

How do you use anti-slip paint?

Anti-slip paint is used much like any other paint. First, the surface to be painted should be clean, dry, and free of any loose or flaking material. Apply the paint using a brush or roller, ensuring even coverage. You should then allow the paint to dry fully according to the manufacturer's instructions. Some types of anti-slip paint may require a second coat for optimal durability and traction.

How long does anti-slip paint last?

The lifespan of anti-slip paint varies depending on factors like the quality of the paint, the environment it is exposed to, and the amount of foot traffic. However, on average, you can expect a high-quality anti-slip paint to last anywhere from 2 to 5 years in moderate to high traffic areas. In less demanding environments, it may last even longer. Regular maintenance, such as cleaning and touch-ups, can also extend the lifespan of the paint.

What is the recommended best anti-slip paint for concrete surfaces? offers exceptional products for anti-slip paint solutions, especially for concrete surfaces. Our prime recommendation is an innovative mixture incorporating our natural granulates from fruit stones. These granulates, when added to the paint, create a rough, non-slip surface, increasing friction and reducing the likelihood of slips or falls. This type of non-slip floor paint is ideal for both indoor and outdoor concrete surfaces due to its high durability and weather-resistant properties.

What is the suggested best non-slip paint for wood?

For wooden surfaces, recommends using our non-slip paint infused with eco-friendly granulates from fruit stones.
