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.

    We purchased to us on our outside steel stairway on our house. This product covered nicely and gave good traction. We will see how it is doing on a year or two.

    Comments about TotalBoat TotalTread Non-Skid Deck Paint:

    As I said, the gray was a bit blue. But since I couldn't decide between gray and blue, I am happy with it. Coverage was GREAT, one quart goes a long way. I bought two, so now I have plenty for touch up. I did one thorough coat, and then a quick second coat. 30 ft sailboat took just over one quart! I would estimate my top deck to be 80% non skid. Entire project was much easier than anticipated, taping was the hardest part!

      got this to redo non-skid that I had repainted last year but the finish failed (a major brand non-skid that didn't help me when i contacted customer service). . . so far I am happy, only did three small test areas but the finsh was easy to apply and looks great

      Comments about TotalBoat TotalTread Non-Skid Deck Paint:

      I had great results applying this paint with a foam roller. I expected to need 2 coats, but I got excellent coverage and non skid distribution with one. It dried quickly and the taped edges were left very crisp and clean. I have already recommended this to other professionals that I know.

      Comments about TotalBoat TotalTread Non-Skid Deck Paint:

      Very easy to apply with a zip roller and the coverage is good. The nonskid is not overly aggressive, which is nice, but it is still very grippy. It is a bit more blue than I would have liked, but it is fine. One coat covered 70 SF. Going to put down a second coat after the weather warms again. It is a good product for a really good price. I am really glad to have found it. Time will tell if it holds up well, but it seems it will.

          Comments about TotalBoat TotalTread Non-Skid Deck Paint:

          I put this on my Dyer Dhow which I use for frostbiting. For years I had nothing special in my boat and was always slipping slowly down to leeward as my feet slipped. As I am a man of a certain bulk, readjusting my position in the boat always led to drastic (and slow) rocking. Last weekend I went out for the first time with this paint and my slipping was reduced drastically. It was a puffy day and there was often an inch or so of water in the boat. There was no change in the non skid properties.

          It was easy to apply but it was raining leaves at the time, so I cannot attest to its smoothness. I only used one coat. Also it will only be exposed to the elements for a couple hours every Sunday until April. I will not, therefore, be able to attest to its ability to withstand the elements long term. That is why I gave it four stars instead of five.

            Comments about TotalBoat TotalTread Non-Skid Deck Paint:

            Wow, what a great paint. I used it to coat the entire interior of a 14' Elgin run-about in which I had just re-built all the seat supports and epoxied the floor and supports. The non skid is effective yet not abrasive like sand additives and allows easy cleaning of dirt etc from the bottom of my interior. Two days after application I was installing my seats wearing heavy work boots and did not scuff or damage the paint at all despite my carelessness with tools and the heavy soles on my boots.

            I used 15% xylene as a reducer and sprayed with a 1.4mm tip HVLP at about 40psi tip pressure and it sprayed like a dream! Well, after I removed the filter from my spray gun. The non skid additive will plug your filter. I also did not strain the paint first. If you are going over new epoxy work you MUST let the epoxy cure completely or the amine blush will continue to work through to the surface grossly extending your cure time.

            I like this paint and am sure I will use the left over for other products. e.g non slip coating on tool handles since I often am working out doors in bad weather.

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