    Product Usage


    Apply the minimum amount of SLIPWAY–Heavy Duty required to cover all working surfaces. Avoid excess application which may result in running or pooling of product.

    A typical application requires approx. 300mL to 500mL per truck.

    SLIPWAY–Heavy Duty may also be applied by hand sprayer, brush or mop. Working tools can be protected by simply immersing in undiluted product.

    CAUTION - Avoid use on rubber or latex as SLIPWAY– Heavy Duty can penetrate these materials and cause shape distortion or softening.


    An application device called Vic-Kit, has been specifically designed and developed for easy application of SLIPWAY into trucks at asphalt plants. The unit is complete with a variable spray gun and usage rates can be easily managed via a timer control and lock out.

    These Kits can be installed on site under a supply agreement with Victorian Chemicals.
