Pettit Skidless Compound Customer Questions and Answers

Question

I used Pettit 9900 Skidless Compound on the deck of my small pram dinghy and found the surface too rough even after four coats of paint over the top of it. Is there a finer grit version of this or another product suitable to a small boat? I like the ease of sprinkling this onto wet paint and then painting over it. I just need a less rough version so as to not destroy clothing and exposed arms and legs.

Question

Dose the texture look and feel similar to sand additive? Or softer, more round shaped? Also, dose it roll out even in texture? Or best to broadcast over wet paint. Thanks

I mixed this product with the paint as directions stated. The texture is just enough for you to keep you grip on the deck but not coarse as to hurt your bare feet. It went on fine with a roller just mix well and keep it mixed. I also thinned some with recommended thinner. Very happy with results.

Answer

The texture is extremely close to a sand additive in a household paint. It works very well from that perspective - it's very "anti-skid". It's not a terribly attractive finish, though. My application did NOT go on entirely evenly. I took care to stir up the can before pouring into the paint roller tray, but clearly I did not take enough care. There were still two or three areas that came out "wrong". I suspect it is from when I let the paint tray get too close to empty. If I were to re-do this, I either would not add the skidless compound, or would use it sparingly - and only in a few selected places. I used it "pretty much everywhere" on the topsides. I'm pretty sure I can sand it all down and get the effect I was hoping for (and also minimize the over-application of the grit in a couple of places). But that's not my idea of fun. On a positive note - this stuff is seriously anti-skid. You will never slip again if you put this stuff down. You'll just need to do a better (and more thoughtful) application than I did.
