How does SIMIX save you time and money?
Why is SIMIX “less slippery” than floor finish? SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating has been tested in the field by a certified NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers) expert using what’s called a “coefficient of friction” test. Simix scored an average of .573 (Leather Sole Wet/Coefficient of Friction Test on a non-lab environment); most insurance companies consider a business at fault in “slip and fall” cases if their floors score below .5. Thus, having a SIMIX-coated floor could help protect your company in a lawsuit
How does SIMIX work? SIMIX is nano-engineered, and works in the world of particles that are one thousand times smaller than the human eye can see. SIMIX contains sub-nano and nano-particles which bind together in a tight structure that becomes harder than steel when it dries. Once it is fully cured, SIMIX’s hardness rating is above a 9 on the Mohs scale. On the same scale, diamonds are 10 and hardened steel is 8.
How long does SIMIX take to apply? SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating is faster to apply than floor finish, because it dries more quickly. That is because SIMIX’s nano-particles force out water; if you use floor finish, you have to wait for the water to evaporate. We estimate your floors will be ready for foot traffic in 20% to 30% less time than with a floor finish coat. For step-by-step application instructions, click here.
Do we need special training to apply SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating? No. Written instructions are found on the packaging. If you can apply wax, you can apply SIMIX. Watch our videos on YouTube to see how easy it is.
What kinds of floors can it be used on? SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating can be used on virtually any kind of hard floor, including VCT.
What type of cleaners can be used on SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating? Only SIMIX All Purpose Cleaner should be used to maintain the high pH that prevents microbial growth and cross contamination. Repeated use of standard liquid cleaners may cause the surface to be slippery when wet.
Will it make my floors shine like floor finish? SIMIX makes your room brighter instantly. Your floors will not have a “wet” shine like floor finish; instead, you’ll have a crystal chandelier-like shine.
Will it change the color of my floor? SIMIX is clear. It will not change the color of your floor, and it will not crack, yellow, or chip.
How does it make a room smell better? SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating has a pH of 11, which is above the range where microbes can exist. Odor-causing bacteria cannot grow on floors coated with SIMIX because of the high pH and the nano-particles of titanium dioxide. This makes SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating ideal for healthcare settings.
How much does it cost per square foot? Significantly less than a premium floor finish.
Where is it already in use? SIMIX is in use in schools, hospitals and stores in New York, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida, North Carolina, Georgia, California, Nevada, Australia and Canada.
Is SIMIX Multi-Surface Coating environmentally friendly?SIMIX contains potassium silicate, which is an EPA recognized environmentally bio-friendly pesticide, and titanium dioxide (TiO2) a photo catalyst, which is recognized by the EPA as an environmentally bio-friendly biocide.
