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 provides optimum gloss control and is 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 and Gallon sizes in 3 colors: Sand 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.

Thinning (Brush/Roll Application)  Can be thinned 5-10% with TotalBoat Special Brushing Thinner 100, if needed. 
Thinning (Spray Application)  Thin with xylene, typically 15-20%. Thinning percentage varies by sprayer type and conditions. 
Cleanup  TotalBoat Special Brushing Thinner 100 or TotalBoat Dewaxer & Surface Prep 
Primer  TotalBoat Topside Primer 
Application Temp  50-90°F

        I used this to apply a non-skid to a flat bottom boat that had previously been painted. I sanded the old paint and primed the entire surface. I rolled on the non-skid and tipped it with a quality brush. I only needed one coat as the color I chose was gray and I used a gray primer coat. The texture is mild and does not hurt bare feet.

        Great coverage and grip, but grey is blue

            Comments about TotalBoat TotalTread Non-Skid Deck Paint:

            Applied easily with great coverage but had to do a double take when I opened the can to find a light bluish grey paint inside. Checked the can and it had a grey color swatch on it but it definitely didn't look like the paint in the can. Looked at the Jamestown website thinking I had possibly received a mislabeled can but discovered light Blue is not an offered color option. The good news is that everyone that gets on the boat says wow, I really love this new blue non-skid you put down so guess it worked out OK. Just be aware, if you're looking for a true grey color, this probably isn't the product for you. Took about 3/4 of a quart to lay down one coat on the deck of my Catalina 22.

              Prepped a previously Awl Gripped deck with non metallic Brillo pad and applied total tread 2 coats. Easy to touch up and color match. Great product.

                Comments about TotalBoat TotalTread Non-Skid Deck Paint:

                I used this non-skid on the floor of a 13 foot flat bottom aluminum boat. The instructions say not to use it on metal but say it is ok to use on previously painted surfaces. I sanded the old paint and where there was bare aluminum with 80 grit and primed the entire surface. I then rolled and tipped the entire floor surface. It turned out great. I will update the review if I have any problems with adhesion to the metal. So far, no problems.

                  There was some damage to the gel coat on high traffic deck areas that were filled nicely by applying two coats. Now it looks good and non slip.

                        This paint covers so well. I cut it with a bit of mineral spirits. Just enough to get a good flow with a foam roller. 12x15 area of my pilot house received two coats with about a quart and a half of paint. I painted this when the temp was about 65 degrees. First coat followed by second 16 hours later. It took two days to dry to no tack....another day and we were walking on it. I imagine it would set up much better at 75F or better. The non skid particulate is positive but not aggressive. Thee grey was a nice shade for my purposes and the semi gloss finish is wearing well.
