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 
Application Humidity  0-90% 
Recommended Number of Coats  1-2 (as grit is desired)

As with most paint jobs, preparation is key. Clean, de-grease, de-wax, wipe with acetone and tape off area to be painted. In my case, I was painting the non-skid on a 32 year old boat that was obvious had never seen paint since she was new. I used a mini foam roller and initially tipped after I rolled but quickly found it was not necessary for my application.

Paint goes on evenly and quickly. I would suggest "pre-loading" the roller before starting your paint job on the boat. My roller was a bit light when I first started and was quickly apparent that I should have rolled out a few coats onto a piece of wood or something similar to get the paint evenly distributed on the roller. Luckily, I started on a small section in the head below deck so it won't be easily noticed.

I ordered gray and it is kind of a bluish-gray, which is actually pretty close to the original non-skid color so I am happy.

Pulling tape was easy with no paint coming off or tape getting stuck. On most of the areas I pulled the tape within an hour of finishing but waited 24 hours to pull tape from the cockpit floor and it came up fine.

The grip is non-aggressive (a definite plus for me) but hold is strong even in wet weather. I'm one of those fools that likes to go barefoot most of the time so I wanted something that wouldn't rip open my skin. : ) Another benefit that I wasn't expecting is that water beads right up and the deck seem to dry faster.

1 quart easily handled my 27' sailboat with just a bit left over for any small touch-ups that might be needed. Taping took around 3.5 hours and painting took about 90 minutes so this could easily be done in a day. I did all my prep work and waited a day to paint but next time will tackle in one shot.

MANY people have stopped by to look at the paint and compliment the boats appearance.

Applied two coats of TotalTread white using foam roller and brush over non-skid pattern on Catalina 27. Area was thoroughly cleaned and scuffed. While the TotalTread initially looked good, after several weeks airborne dirt begin collecting to a much higher degree than on the remaining unpainted non-skid. A high pressure hose does not begin to remove the dirt, only aggressive brushing.

            Comments about TotalBoat TotalTread Non-Skid Deck Paint:

            I wanted to go with a light gray, matching something close what I already had on my Islander 28
            After reading the reviews, most reviewers stated the light gray was more of a blue shade.
            I ordered 1 qt. of the light gray and 1 qt. of the white.
            I mixed the white with about half of the gray, tried a test area on my boat and it was light blue, not what I wanted, not close.
            Since I spent the money on the paint, I didn't want to not use it.
            I took my mixed paint to my local paint store, they suggested that I get another qt. of the white and bring it in so they could alter the color to more of a gray color.
            They mixed the extra qt. of white with the paint I had mixed and added some tints.
            Matched up pretty close to what I had.
            After getting the color where I wanted the paint goes on nicely covers well.

                    I do believe that you will need 2 coats to get consistent coverage. Surprisingly this product goes a long way. The grip is good without being too aggressive.

                          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.
