Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Slipp-Nott traction system?
The S-N traction system is made up of the base and the mat. The base is made of modified Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene Terpolymer (A.B.S), and it is bonded to a ribbed rubber backing which protects the floor and holds the base in place. The S-N mat is the replaceable set of sheets which is attached, as a set, to the base. These sheets are clear and are individually treated with a water based acrylic material, specially formulated for the S-N mat. Each used sheet is peeled off from the mat to expose a new, clean sheet.
Why do you need Slipp-Nott?
Many sports are played at high speed and require quick starts, stops and cuts by an athlete.These sports are generally played in indoor arenas on waxed floors. The indoor floors are always smooth but can be synthetic, linoleum or hardwood. The wax, dust or dirt can be transferred to the sole of the athlete's shoes limiting or interferring with his ability to execute these quick and sharp maneuvers. ANYTHING between the sole of the athletic shoe and the floor reduces the traction the athlete's needs to make his maneuvers. It is not unusual to see a player wiping the sole of his shoes with his hands to remove any wax and dirt buildup. Slipp-Nott product is the perfect traction system to improve maneuverability and reduce possible injuries.
How does Slipp-Nott work?
When an athlete steps on a Slipp-Nott mat, the dust, dirt and wax that accumulate on the soles of athletic shoes remain on the adhesive coating of the exposed (top) sheet of the mat. When the top sheet is covered with dirt, it should be peeled off and discarded. Sheets can be recycled.
How do you store Slipp-Nott mats?
Just keep the mats laying flat, at room temperature and out of direct sunlight.

How can clean shoes increase traction if the floors are dusty?
It is true that the floor is dusty
but clean shoes increase traction even on dusty floors because the sole
also makes contact with the parts of the floor that are not covered with
