Epoxy paste for stair treads


Form-A-Tread Original is a durable high-tech epoxy paste designed to be easy to apply to stair treads. Form-A-Tread’s kit includes a 400-milliliter cartridge of material that can produce 25 to 40 linear feet of 1-inch-wide tread depending on the surface type. A special tool is then used to dispense and mix the material at the time of application in the correct ratio. The kit includes a patent-pending stencil system, so the 1-inch-wide tread lines remain clean, neat and parallel. For added safety, the 100% epoxy tread line doesn’t shrink during cure, so it provides a superior tactile sensation that creates greater awareness of footing when climbing or descending stairs.
