SL7™ – Service Station Forecourt Protection
SL7™ Innovations is the sole importer and applicator of a hydrocarbon impervious, non-slip coating system specifically developed for retail Service Station and commercial Diesel Stop forecourts to protect concrete substrates from fuel absorption.
Studies suggest approximately 0.01% of forecourt dispensed fuel is spilled on the ground. In the big picture this percentage may seem insignificant however put into context this is 1,000 litres of spillage for every one million litres of fuel dispensed. An average Service Station or Diesel Stop in New Zealand dispenses between 3 – 10 million litres per annum.
The resultant effects of spillage, in particular diesel is the mess and the tracking on and off the forecourt. The second and possibly bigger challenge is the resource and maintenance cost of trying to keep the forecourt clean which can be an onerous, almost impossible task.
Our hydrocarbon impervious, non-slip coating system changes the game. It will assist in preventing slips, concrete absorption, staining and is extremely durable handling high traffic volumes. Our coatings also resist tyre shear from turning trucks and cars which is a major plus and leaves very little, if any rubber scars etched into the concrete. From a site efficiency and financial perspective, site cleaning and maintenance of the forecourt drops dramatically, as rain run off or hose washing cleanses the forecourt and the fuel contamination is contained easily in the sites interceptor system.
With a large range of colours available there is also a major marketing opportunity to add to the benefits of this application. Companies can colour code their forecourts/lanes with the products that are dispensed as is done overseas to reduce lane snarl ups, reduce wrong product dispensing and to assist more efficient traffic flow management on the forecourt.
Compared to other products in the market that purport to being hydrocarbon resistant and able to compete with this product, SL7’s™ product applied to the surface is extremely competitive and in some cases to date, less than half the price per m2 of non hydrocarbon resistant products marketed.
Application times will vary dependent on location, coverage area and seasonal variants but preparing an area and coating can be an achievable target of as little as eight hours.

SL7™ – Retail Car Parks & Warehouse Floors
SL7™ Innovations hydrocarbon impervious, non-slip coating system is equally as good on other heavy duty concrete surfaces, like retail car parks and warehouse floors, where the strong and durable protection of concrete substrates from wear and tear is required.
As an example we have used our sealing application on a major Toyota franchises workshop floors and the results were amazing, so if you would like to know more about our sealing applications.
