Technology of the Year
Film is No Slip Up
AIMCAL honored four entries in its Technology of the Year competition. MTI Polyexe, Brentwood, NH, won the distinction for its anti-skid, rough surface, blown film used for building and construction applications. The weather-resistant material, incorporating UV barrier additives, becomes an intrinsic part of the building, such as in sub-roofing applications, while permitting safe walking conditions even when wet. Produced in one pass, the film is said to provide better UV protection and coefficient of friction at a lower cost and exhibits good strength properties; can be laminated to virtually any substrate; together with comes in unlimited colors.
"The judges were completely intrigued by the Anti-Skid Film and liked the fact that it eliminates the grit typically used in roofing films and other non-skid surfaces. They also were excited about its potential for widespread use far beyond its initial applications in building and construction especially if it costs less than competing materials. "We see all sorts of applications -- from icy steps to slippery boat decks," they concluded."
