Creating Coasters with Anti-Skid Products

Whether you make coasters out of cork or stylish ceramics, adding anti-skid rubber materials to the cork coaster is almost always a good idea. Coasters are utilized to protect surfaces from water damage as well as protect the surface from hot beverages. By adding an anti-skid product to the bottom of your coaster, you can further protect the user from potentially spilled beverages.

Anti-Skid Uses in Consumer Electronics

Consumer electronics include a wide array of products, such as laptop computers, desktop computers, and more. Regardless of the consumer electronic application, anti-skid products can be used to prevent it from moving, shifting, slipping, and falling.

One common application of our anti-skid products in consumer electronics is with bluetooth speakers. Although these devices are designed to be portable, it's important the device doesn't shift and move when it's placed in a stationary position.

If it does, it can slide off of surfaces and fall and damage the internal components. However, Frank Lowe's anti-skid products with speciality adhesive can easily be affixed to the bottom of the bluetooth speaker to hold it securely in place and avoid slippage.

Anti-Skid Uses for Indoor Furniture

Whether it's a couch, ottoman, loveseat, recliner, kitchen table, or any other piece of furniture - it's vital for it to be secure when users are getting up or sitting down. However, slick hardwood floors and tiles can result in sliding pieces of furniture whenever someone uses it.

Frank Lowe's anti-skid rubber products are fully customizable and are designed to securely attach to the bottom of the piece of furniture to help generate traction, which helps prevent slippage. In addition, Frank Lowe's rubber products have an additional anti-skid use — they serve as a buffer between flooring surfaces and the furniture to help keep the flooring unimpacted by the furniture.

Anti-Skid Uses for Outdoor Furniture

If you manufacture outdoor furniture, it's important for the furniture to stay put. Frank Lowe's anti-skid rubber is the ideal solution for outdoor furniture. In addition to helping keep the patio furniture or outdoor furniture in place, we can provide materials guidance, so you choose the ideal anti-skid rubber elastomer for your application.

For example, if the furniture is designed to be used in an industrial setting where it may come in contact with oils, we can suggest an anti-skid rubber material with the ability to resist oils as well as other solvents. In addition, we can also suggest certain rubber elastomers designed to withstand weathering. At Frank Lowe, we'll help you carefully think through different scenarios and create a solution that meets the application needs and exceeds expectations.
