SoftPoint Industries has launched SoftSand colored rubber particles for paint and coatings. These soft particles can be added directly to conventional floor paints to create a decorative, non-skid surface in flooring applications where pedestrian comfort, chemical resistance and good adhesion of the particle to the resin system are required, according to the company. SoftSand products are fully cured elastomeric particles that are ground and screened to meet particle requirements. They are available in white, brick red, gray, green and black.
