Surfaces that are frequently wet, dangerous, or inconvenient if slippery are often given special treatment to ensure a non-slip finish. These finishes can be achieved by hand tool techniques, by sawing, by applying an abrasive aggregate, with epoxy urethane. Troweling is the easiest way to obtain a non-slip surface, but it is probably the least durable.
Depending upon the degree of slip resistance required this method might consist of merely discontinuing troweling after a wood floating operation to produce a gritty surface or swirl troweling to raise ridges on the concrete surface. Where foot traffic is to be heavy or for industrial vehicle applications, it has been found advisable to use abrasive grains in the surface of concrete to provide a long lasting non-slip surface.
