About ten years ago somebody told me that Slip Stop should be nothing
else but Zic Stearate. As at that time I was still studying chemistry
I took my chances and run an Infrared Spectrum which confirmed the
stearate bit (although not the Zinc). My club has been using Zinc
stearate on wooden floors ever since.
Correct name: Zinc(II)-stearate
or Zincum Stearinicum
available in pharmaceutical quality from every good pharmacy. Price
per kg approx. 35 Euros, the smaller the quantities the higher the
Disclaimer notice: I do not produce the powder, I do not claim that
this stuff will work on EVERY floor and I do not accept any
responsibility if it doesn't work on your floor. Better try with a
small quantity first.
