Silva Non Skid Solutions LLC was founded to serve the needs of those that needed a longer lasting superior nonskid Surfaces. Our belief is there’s a huge need for value through long life cycle nonskid. Our peel and stick, marine nonskid product, is trademarked Silvagrip ®. It’s not anything like regular peel and stick non skid. Our product is a molten metal based alloy that holds the abrasive particles.
The video, below, shows the vertical landing aircraft F35B, landing on the aluminum ceramic deck coating. The same surface material Silvagrip uses, but in a patented peel and stick, the patent number is US 9,597,857 B2
Continually removing and replacing marine nonskid paint is expensive. The removal process for traditonal nonskid is extremely labor intensive as you can see in the video below. Silvagrip is typically applied in 3′ x 4′ sheets and spacing of one and half inches. With Silvagrip you simply remove and replace the damaged piece.
The picture, below, is a close up of the Navy deck. It has been colored Navy Blue.
Silvagrip® has exactly the same long lasting surface but in a peel and stick application, giving you a huge savings in Total Cost of Ownership.
Our most recent install on 32′ PTSB USCG boat.
We also offer Silvagrip in various Alloys using combinations of carbides and oxides of Titanium, Tungsten and Ceramics. We offer it in sheets and rolls.
Colors we offer: From left to right, Black, Navy Gray, USCG Gray, Rust Red for barges, Green for Helidecks and Offshore Rigs, Safety Yellow, white and Silvagrip without color.
Silvagrip Peel and Stick is very durable. Here, we twist the tire of a 7,000 lb forklift on the surface and it has no effect to the adhesion to the deck.
Silvagrip remains secure after twisting tire on the surface

Benefits of Silvagrip Peel & Stick Nonskid Tape
Can be applied to any dry clean surface
Can be applied with temperatures as low as 40ºF
No maximum overcoat window
Ready for traffic immediately after installation
No special tools required
Convenient pre-cut sizes for easier handling, installation, and replacement
Eliminates hot and cold work restrictions
Eliminates need for services associated with epoxy nonskid application
Typical non skid paint weighs 0.623 lbs/sq.ft. Silvagrip weighs .321 lbs/sq ft.
Uniform surface and clean appearance
Reduced maintenance and life cycle costs
Eliminates rust bleed-thru and provides additional protection to applied area
No ventilation requirements for installation
Installation within Ships’ Force capability
Can be maintained, repaired, or replaced quickly, while in port or underway
Disadvantages of traditional Epoxy Non Skid Paint
Removal is noisy, dirty, and time consuming
Ship’s Force has limited experience and tools to achieve required surface prep
Primer must dry and remain clean until epoxy is applied
Epoxy has a long cure time
Narrow limits for temperature and humidity
Areas must be secured for days, preventing other work in the area
Rework due to someone stepping on the primer or wet nonskid is common
Temporary ventilation installed to remove the fumes on interior applications
No protection to deck from corrosion – can cause accelerated corrosion
Significant quantities of hazardous material must be stored
The key advantage of P&S nonskid over epoxy nonskid is that is has none of the associated costs and constraints associated with applying traditional epoxy nonskid or removing it.
Silvagrip® was first designed for long-board racers. The shear forces applied in long-board racing far exceed the normal wear and tear as seen on a standing surface.
Silvagrip® is a blend of “molten/frozen” bonded aluminum/ceramic metal oxides and ceramics. So flexible it can be wrapped over the edges of the thin skate boards and doesn’t crack. It doesn’t have the partical release issues of typical nonskid tapes that use resin. By implementing the ceramic into an aluminum alloy, the particals are held securely. The rough application method provides very secure traction.
The applications for safe nonskid surfaces are endless.
