Question

It seems two coats are necessary in most situations. That being said is it necessary to remove the masking tape after the first coat and then reapply before the second coat or can I put two coats over the masking tape ?

Asked on 03/10/2015 by Rod McLeod

Top Answer

I have used this paint a lot. As long as the tape is in good shape and has not gotten wet a second even a third coat over it should not be a problem.

Answer

Scott, Thx for the reply.I was hoping to mask only once but am concerned about the tape not coming off properly after the first coat dries. You've pretty much answered that for me. Rod

Answered on 03/10/2015 by Rod McLeod

Answer

As in any painting, the hardest and most time consuming chore is the preparation. When I painted my non-skid I spent hours masking it off just perfectly. I can't imagine doing that twice! So my answer is a resounding no! Just use high quality masking tape and get as little paint onto it as possible so that its easier to remove. There were some places where I got a lot of paint onto the masking but even then when I pulled it up I got perfect sharp lines.

Answered on 03/11/2015 by DANIEL BECKER

Answer

you can probably put the second coat over the masking tape. One coat worked for me, gave me amazing grip! It went on real easy too, just make sure to stir really good and often.

Answered on 03/11/2015 by GERALD LANDRY

I really don't remember if I did 2 coats...it looked (and still does) great .... I definitely did it it one day and I definitely only masked once...

Answer

As long as its not more that a couple days its fine. Be sure to pull tape away from painted side as not to lift paint. roll the tape in a curl to get as much downward pull as possible

Answered on 03/11/2015 by BUZZ LOVELACE

Answer

Hi Buzz, My concern is that the tape may not come off properly if allowed to dry after the first coat. Then afterwards applying a second coat over it then removing the tape when the second coat is still slightly damp. In painting my waterline with antifouling paint I've always removed the tape immediately after finishing painting and have always gotten a very sharp clean edge.

I have a 32ft. 1970 all wood Carver with vinyl deck covering. I painted the old vinyl with Interdeck and it worked very well. It is not high gloss, it has a slight matte finish that is non-skid. The best part - it's as tough as nails. I don't think you can wear it off at all.

Answer

This is agreat product to useot will definitely work for you. It applies easily and covers well. I used a primer but don't rember the brand. The product is so strong it really bonds. I used two coats a few years ago on my entire boat deck. Full hot sun exposure. Still looks like new. Great product. Brian.

Answered on 04/20/2013 by BRIAN WOODS

As long as the deck is clean and free of oil or other contamination interdeck is a great product. I have used it on a few of my boats and it holds up well and is not hard to clean.

Yes, it's easy to apply and cleanup is simple enough with mineral spirits. You might have apply two coats. I only put on one coat, last year, and some spots are showing, through, now. Overall, I recommend it.

Easy to apply. One coat made our deck look like new.

Answered on 04/18/2013 by JAMES DAVIS

Answer

I used it for a non-marine application, I have a fiberglass shower which developed a crack that I epoxied over, then painted over the whole bottom pan. This product was easy to apply and has held up very well in this constantly wet situation, but it sees no UV exposure. I plan to apply it to the non-skid sections of my fiberglass boat this summer. Good luck getting color matching with existing deck though, that is likely to be tricky.

Answered on 04/19/2013 by ROBERT LYON

Answer

I have had great luck with this coating. I used it to resurface the fiberglass deck and cockpit floor on a 1968 vintage sailboat. It's held tight and has not faded after three years of hard use. Good Luck!

Answered on 04/18/2013 by DOUG JOSEPH

Answer

This productlooks like what we used to call a "sand finish". A sand finish looks like you painted something and sprinkled sand on it while the paint was still wet. If you are trying to do a repair that you want to match an existing nonskid pattern molded into the gelcoat,this product will not duplicate the pattern. I did not like the way this looked when I was done and ended up painting over it with Brightside enamel with very satisfactory results.

I have a Polar 1780 - 17' bay boat that I want to completely do the inside with interdeck non-skid. Do I need to use the pre-kote primer first and then the interdeck? and how much of each would I need to do two coats to get a good coverage? Thanks Gary

Thanks Patrick, now I am getting confused....not with your answer but with what to use. I watched a video where they used the interdeck perfection 2-part and added the intergrip. That looked really good and I would not have the non grip on the sides. I am thinking about going that route. Which is better, the perfection method or the interdeck?

Answered on 02/06/2012 by Gary Woolsey

Answer

Gary, I have a 30 ft Christcraft Seaskiff, the area of my deck is relatively small. Maybe 8 x 8 ft area including gunnels. Two coats would be good, I used a small roller and brush. I did not undercoat or primer my deck. It holds up well. The only con is skid marks and ground in dirt should we washed off as soon as you notice them. A hard bristle brush and softscrub work good.

I would use precoat primer, sand smooth to minimal mil thickness. Almost to the point of being clear with wet sand method. Wash clean with water and solvent wipe prior to 1st coat. It will take 2 coats to get full coverage and best appearance. Do not apply heavy coats.

Answer

Yes, I believe it can, although the wood will have to be sanded and primed with two coats of Prekote primer beforehand. In my case it was applied directly to pre-painted fiberglass in good condition and the end result appears to provide a very satisfactory non-skid finish.

I don't see why not. you'd have to make sure to prepare the deck properly. But it's an excellent product for that type of application.

Answered on 05/15/2013 by Kevin Gardner

Answer

Yes, depending on what kind of plywood was used to make the deck . If it is good marine ply it should be OK. If it is fur/spruce marine ply you might want to fiberglass it first. Fur/spruce marine plywood tends to get surface checks and cracks. If you want good information join the Wooden Boat Forum and ask more detailed questions there. Its free and you'll get lots of good info.

Answered on 05/14/2013 by THOMAS FULTON

Answer

The answer is yes, as long as the wood is prepared and the top coat is applied first then it adheres well.

I have used the non-skid deck coating for a few years now. Easy to apply and holds up well.

Answered on 01/04/2012 by DAVID ALLEN

Answer

I have used this paint on the deck of my boat for two seasons now. The non-skid sand is very fine and I thought it would not provide a non-skid surface but it is just the right blend and works great. I appplied it to epoxy coated marine plywood using a brush and foam epoxy roller. It looks great and has only peeled where I did not prep properly. Wash and throuly sand the epoxy before application. It is very thick so spraying may not be an option. Use a roller and spread it thin in two coats and it goes a long way.

Answered on 01/03/2012 by DAVID ANDERSON

Answer

Just to confirm - the interdeck paint is most certainly a paint with silica sand in it - so this might not be the product you want to use.

Answered on 01/03/2012 by BRANDON SHEPPARD

Answer

I recently tackled a similar project on my 24 Grady Offshore. The bottom layer of fiberglass on my fuel tank hatch had partially delaminated from the plywood core which was wet. When you stepped on it the hatch would flex. The only part salvagable was the top layer of glass. After removing the damaged fiberglass and wood core, I laminated new 1/2 inch marine plywood to it, then installed 1508 biaxial glass mat wet out with epoxy resin. To finish it I used Interlux Pre-Kote Primer with Interlux Interdeck Polyurethane non-skid coating. If you dont want the non-skid, you can use Interlux Brightside Polyurethane in off-white.

Answered on 01/03/2012 by JOEL STANGER

Answer

If I get your question, it sounds like you have some hatch covers that need a non-skid paint and you'd like to use a single product without the primer/paint steps. Interdeck is a fine product for this. I don't know if you can spray it and you wouldn't want to anyway. Just mask off your areas, clean off any wax or other products that may have accumulated, give it a quick sanding to provide some mechanical tooth for the paint. No need for any fine sanding, 80 grit is fine. Then roll on the paint, two coats are enough, and you can use a cheap roller since you're trying for a rough rather than smooth finish. Easiest painting you'll ever do. If you aren't looking for a non-skid paint and instead want a regular paint finish, then any of the other topside paints with the recommended primer is what you want. Interdeck is a non-skid finish.

Answer

I have been using the product successfully for many years and have not thinned it once. I may be wrong but the instructions on the can suggest not to thin. Trust me it goes on well and should not be thinned. Coverage is excellent as is. Get five to ten years out of coverage. I do do two coats though. Make sure you tape well that is a key factor. Use the best tape not the discount stuff.

Answered on 02/14/2015 by BILL MCGRATH

Answer

Thinning will likely reduce the texture/gripping quality of the paint. We actually add some grit and back roll for added texture. The added texture does not make it uncomfortable/abrasive for the crew sitting on the rail and is a bonus when it's bumpy. Leroi/Voodoo 2/Tripp 38/racing
