TotalBoat TotalTread Non Skid Deck Paint

TotalTread is a ready-mixed slip resistant polyurethane non-skid deck paint with unique Propyltex™ wax texturing agents. The rounded shape of Propyltex™ waxes provide optimum gloss control and are less abrasive compared to silica texturing agents found in most non-skid deck paints or additives.

Apply TotalTread by brush or roller. You will love the grippy, but not abrasive, high-traction surface. Apply a second coat for even more grip. Available in quart sizes in 3 colors: Beige, Gray, and White.

Free quick-start kit included with each order: Contains (2 ea) paint pots, (2 ea) stir sticks, (1 pr) latex gloves.

Tech Spec Product Info User Generated Content
Most non-skid deck paints rely on a 'sand' silica additive to provide grip. While they are certainly effective at providing secure footing, they have a few drawbacks: Scrub your deck too hard and the additive can become visible, leaving unsightly dark specks. The shape of traditional additives doesn't bond well with the paint, and the finish doesn't last all that long.

Our TotalTread is formulated to address these issues. Instead of a hard irregular shaped silica grit agent, TotalTread's wax rubber spheres are shock absorbing to give the finish some elasticity. The paint sticks better, and the finish looks better longer. It's easier to clean and won't wear away from scrubbing. And, because it's still a 1 part finish, it's easy to apply.

      Simply stir and apply. Works well with a brush. No rollers needed. If careful, you don't need to tape most areas.

          My wife and I have completed approximately half of the nonskid area on our Ticon 30 with the TotalTread product. It is easy to apply and provides more than sufficient working time to complete large areas at a time. We allowed the paint to dry for 10 minutes or so before removing the 3M tape resulting in very clean lines with an obvious "build" between the deck and the nonskid areas. The boat was originally painted in 1985 and we are simply painting directly over the previous paint. So far, so good!
          Here are two observations that I have so far however:
          I ordered the Beige which seemed to be a close match to the original paint on the boat. Unfortunately, it has dried much lighter than expected and even has a pinkish hue to it. Not sure I will be able to live with that.
          Second, I am not seeing any "rubber spheres" in the paint either before or after it's applied. The paint is quite smooth and the only nonskid pattern that is visible is from what was already there prior.
          Now that I've committed 2 days to painting already and the color is not what I had hoped, I'm considering painting over it again with the grey, or ordering more beige again and having it tinted darker.

              Used this deck paint for a porch floor, covered but no walls. The previous urethane deck paint was durable but slippery. The fine grit in the Total Boat really works. Unexpected benefit: easier to clean than a smooth floor, dirt doesn't seem to stick to the rough surface. The texture reduces gloss so glare and imperfections in the wood are not as noticeable. So I got the durability benefit of gloss without the usual problems for this application. I would have preferred a darker grey choice for this dry land use, but the quality far outweighs my color preference. I am extremely pleased with all aspects of this paint.

              Comments about TotalBoat TotalTread Non Skid Deck Paint:

              The non-skid areas on my Pearson 424 were painted 17 years ago using Awlcraft 2000 with antiskid additive. Over the years, it had worn away in several areas, revealing the old deck color and non-skid pattern beneath. I used TotalTread, in a mixture of two parts white with one of gray, to redo the non-skid areas, chiefly for cosmetic reasons, and I'm very pleased with the results. I applied it with a roller, using a small chip brush to finish areas where the roller wouldn't go, and was pleasantly surprised at how even the texture came out. TotalTread is very easy to apply (the difficult part was masking!) and dries so quickly that it started to skim over in the roller tray, so it's important to work quickly and to remove the masking tape immediately after painting. One of the major advantages of this product is that any areas that become damaged, for whatever reason, can be easily repaired by touching up. After my initial test panel had cured for a week and had been disrespected by birds using it as a head, I attacked it with a pressure washer to test durability. It wasn't fazed at all and cleaned up beautifully. The jury is still out on long-term durability and weather resistance, but I have high hopes for it.
