Mix your own non-slip finish - Any Interlux topside finish (including Interthane Plus) can be transformed into a non-skid deck finish by the addition of Interlux Intergrip Polymeric No-Skid Additive. This additive consists of man-made plastic spheres, which are regular in shape. They have a low tendency to collect dirt, and excellent non-skid properties. Apply two coats of paint with Intergrip Polymeric No-Skid Additive mixed in. Intergrip comes in regular grit.
Hand Broadcasting Method - Roll on a coat of Interthane Plus, Brightside or Toplac and while it is still wet, sprinkle the Intergrip as required to obtain the texture of our choice. It is best to put the Intergrip in a flour sifter or salt shaker to dispense the compound. Avoid heavy application, which will not assist in providing a more slip resistant surface. After the paint has been allowed to dry overnight, remove the excess Intergrip and apply the second coat of finish.
