      Hi Leo,

      Thanks so much for your comment! Depending on how much of the plating solution is getting onto the walkway, our Grippy Mat may be the perfect solution. Because it is certified by the NFSI as a high-traction surface, it will help prevent slip and fall injuries that are caused by the leaks, drips and overspray from this process. The mat will also absorb and contain about 50 ounces of fluid per square foot, making it a more convenient choice than trays, squeegees and other traditional containment methods used in production walkways.

      Hope this information helps! Please leave another comment if you have additional questions.
