InvisaTread® Quart Information
InvisaTread® Quart has been lab tested to increase significantly slip resistance by raising the coefficient of friction (COF) on wet or dry surfaces including slippery tile without changing the color or apparent texture. Simply sponge mop or spray on, let stand and RINSE AWAY! Protection for all your flooring surfaces is just that simple.
InvisaTread® Quart Anti-Slip is not a non-slip coating, but rather a safe and effective process that works on most hard surfaces.
Ideal for use on porcelain, ceramic, quarry, honed stone, slate and more.
Use in bathtubs, showers, entryways, walkways, pool areas, kitchens or anywhere there is a stone, tile or mineral surface that is slippery when wet.
Do not use InvisaTread Quart on polished marble.
Use InvisaTread Quart straight from the bottle, DO NOT DILUTE InvisaTread® Quart.

InvisaTread® Quart Detailed Application Instructions
- Trigger Sprayer, Microfiber Spreader or Garden style Pump Sprayer (Pump sprayer recommended for larger areas)
- Two, 5-gallon pails/buckets – clean
- Sponge Mop or Wet-Dry Vacuum/Extraction Tool (recommended)
- Deck Brush (for pre-application cleaning, if needed)
Utilize steps 1 – 4 below on a small hidden area, or extra tile to determine dwell time for your particular surface and desired traction. In general, longer dwell time equals higher traction. Start with 6 minutes of dwell and work up to no more than 16 minutes. Occasionally, 2 applications are needed to increase traction to desired levels, rinse/extract 1st application & repeat steps 2-4.
- In 1st 5-gallon bucket, mix 6 oz. TractionWash™ per gallon of water, a 1:20 dilution. Use a higher concentration (up to 12 oz/gal) if very dirty or greasy. Set aside remaining solution for RINSE step.
- Fill sprayer (or 2nd bucket, if spreading instead of spraying) with 1 gallon of InvisaTread® per 400 sqft.Do not dilute InvisaTread®. Do not mix chemicals.
Step 1: CLEAN. Clean the floor very well with the Traction Wash solution.
If necessary, use the deck brush to scrub the tile & grout for very dirty floors. Rinse the floor with clean water and dry. Use a wet-dry vacuum or extraction tool, if available. It is ok to leave the grout joints wet or damp.
Step 2: APPLY. Spray or spread the InvisaTread Quart onto the area to be treated. Use a liberal amount of product. Coverage should not be about 400 sq. ft per gallon.
Step 3: DWELL. Allow InvisaTread Quart to dwell for 6 – 16 min (exact time shall be determined by your pre-application testing). Keep surface saturated with the product during the entire dwell time. DO NOT allow to dry out, puddle or run off. Apply more InvisaTread Quart, as needed.
Step 4: RINSE. After dwell time has elapsed pour 1:20 Traction Wash dilution onto the tile and scrub grout joints with brush to break up residue. Extract surface. Rinse a 2nd time with clean water and then extract surface. The surface is ready for immediate use.
***Test traction by wetting the surface with clean water and trying to slide foot.
If more traction is desired, do a second application, repeat steps 2 – 4.***
Clean regularly with Traction Wash™ @ 1:32 dilution, to maintain your enhanced Coefficient Of Friction (COF).
Troubleshooting – if necessary
After the grout has completely dried out, you might notice some white residue form in a few spots over the next few days. This is simply a salt residue left over after application; it is not harmful and will be removed with regular cleaning over the next few days. To remove right away, scrub with 1:4 dilution of vinegar to water, or 1:32 dilution of TractionWash to water. NOTE: This does not occur on every application or every type of grout.
