Using aluminium tape is an easy and highly effective way to improve safety. Self-adhesive flexible aluminium backing conforms to textured surfaces such as profiled metal, chequer plate, ladder rungs, profiled slabs, etc. Firm into place using a rubber mallet. Not recommended for sharp (e.g. 90°) corners. Please choose any of our ordinary Safety Tapes.

Surface preparation

Apply to clean, smooth, dry surfaces such as painted or varnished wood, concrete, metal, tiles, and Terrazzo. Apply direct to smooth, hard concrete; dusty concrete will require a primer. 


Smooth, non porous, dust free surfaces do not require priming. To improve adhesion on weak, dusty surfaces, apply a coat of Watco Safety Tape Primer


If appearance is critical we recommend the application of a small trial area first. 

Avoid application at temperatures below 10°C. Low temperatures can reduce adhesion. On steps and nosings, apply the product approximately 10mm in from the edge to prevent premature wear and edge curl. Peel back the backing strip approximately 50mm to reveal the adhesive layer. Avoid removing too much of the backing strip, but slowly keep peeling it back whilst firming the product into place. Firming down by hand or foot pressure is generally sufficient. 


Although the product can be walked on virtually straight away, the adhesive can take 24 hours to set fully. Immediately after placing the item onto the substrate, it can be peeled off reasonably easily. Please allow the adhesive to set if using in heavily trafficked or hazardous areas. A rubber mallet is recommended for firming Watco Conformable Safety Tape into place.
