Sealer that provides traction?

Couldn't find anything with a forum search, google turns up too much.

Putting 6x18 polished marble on a shower floor, with 18x18 polished on the bathroom floor. I know, bad idea. Architect has signed off.

Has anyone used one of these sealers? If so any input would be most appreciated.

Thanks!

I don't have anything in mind!

If one googles "stone sealer traction" at least six brands pop up on the first page.

Was hoping to find someone who's used or heard of one and has a recommendation, a warning, an application tip...anything really.

Thanks!

OK, understand.

Seems we tested one or more of those products some years back. Advertised to not change the appearance of the tile at all, but to increase the COF.

I can testify that they didn't change the appearance of the tile, but I don't recall being able to detect an appreciable change in the friction of the surface, either. We (TYW) were not at all equipped to make an actual COF test (the industry used static COF then), but I know I didn't feel compelled to say Wow! at any point in the procedure.

No matter which one you buy, check for clean-ability a week later.

Somewhat carefully typed on teensy cell phone keys.

Hoping for feedback

I have a tile on our outdoor porch that is way too slick with even just a light mist in the air. I like what I've read here and am wondering if anyone has had any further experience with these products. I leaning toward Slipshield because I'm considering using the aggregate as well.

Any advise or experience would be appreciated. Thanks!
