Safety Pad II FR

Since 1979, over 8,000 rigs worldwide have used the Safety Pad II FR with outstanding results. It is molded from a high strength 100% solid urethane elastomer and offers extreme hydrolytic stability, anti-fungal properties, ultraviolet stability, fire retardant properties, and chemical or diesel resistance. This high-traction work surface can be custom molded in various thicknesses to fit rotary tables, drill rig floors and any other critical work or walk area.

Safety Pad II FR is known to outlast our leading competitors mat by 2-3 times and has been tested and approved by the Norwegian Maritime Directorate. This approval is based on test certificate 250010.40/92.238 dates 7/31/92, Sintef NBL - Norwegian Fire Research Laboratory. The test method is Solas (Safety of Life At Sea) NT Fire 007-NS-Insta 414).

Drainage grooves are molded into the surface of the mats to assist in the control of fluids that can accumulate. All pads come standard with a non-skid coating for additional traction and durability. This coating also creates a barrier of protection from chemicals, diesel, other corrosive fluids and ultra-violet rays.

"If you're not using Safety Pad II FR, you're slipping!"

Rotary Table

Our standard thickness for Safety Pad II FR rotary table mats is 1 1/4". Thicker options are available for recessed rotaries or other situations where the drill floor is not level. Safety Pad II FR comes standard with stainless steel studs protruding from its non-skid surface along with drain grooves to help disperse drilling fluids.

Movable Pipe Rack

If you're racking pipe on wood, a Movable Pipe rack is available. Cleats on the bottom of the pad bite into the wood to prevent movement. As the rack fills with drill pipe, two men can relocate the pad as needed.

Derrick Area & Steps

This high-traction work surface is custom molded 3/4" thick for use on stairways, derrick boards, and workover rigs.

This report presents the results of Dielectric tests conducted on 9 samples of polymer blocks. The test samples were submitted to our laboratory by Mr. Carl Boddie of Industrial Polymers Inc. on June 27, 1998. The scope of work was limited to conducting a Dielectric Proof test on the samples and providing a factual report of the results. Testing was completed on July 2, 1998.
Sample Identification
A total of 9 samples were submitted for testing. The samples were identified as shown below:
Dielectric Test Method
The test was conducted using the methodology of ASTM:D149. Samples were tested using both Direct Current and Alternating Current. Electrodes (2 each) were machined from Brass round stock to a diameter of 1 inches. The test sample was placed between the electrodes. The probes of the Dielectric tester were attached to the electrodes.
The voltage was increased slowly to 25,000 VDC. These conditions were maintained for a period of 1 minute. After this period, the voltage was slowly reduced to 0 VDC. during this period, observations were made for evidence of breakdown.
This procedure was repeated except that a voltage of 10,000 VAC was used.
This procedure was repeated on an additional 8 samples.

We have completed evaluation of the urethane polymers CS-100FR and a leading competitor's mat sample for absorption and durability in the presence of common diesel fuel. The study consisted of a 12 week immersion carried out at 120F to artificially accelerate the testing.

At the start and at weekly intervals of the testing period sample weights were recorded and the differences compared to determine the affects of solubility in a hydrocarbon environment. The study revealed that the CS-100FR faired the best absorbing only 5.69% in weight and achieving maximum absorption while the leading competitor's sample absorbed 20.28% continuing on an upward trend in the same time period. The overall total percent absorption of diesel fuel could be used as direct indication of the breakdown of cured polymer and long term performance.

A copy of the study and actual test specimens has been included for your review.
