Product Details

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, roller, or spray equipment. 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 four colors: Sand Beige, Kingston Gray, and White (which match our TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside paint colors), and Light Gray, which is a lighter, less blue gray than Kingston Gray.

Info & Guides
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.

IMPORTANT APPLICATION NOTE

TotalBoat TotalTread should be applied in thin coats. 1-2 thin coats are recommended, for best results.

HOW TO RECOAT TOTALTREAD FOR MAINTENANCE PURPOSES

To apply maintenance coats of TotalTread after a few years of use/exposure, clean/dewax the surface and lightly scuff it with 220-grit or 320-grit sandpaper or a maroon Scotch-Brite pad. Scuffing will naturally knock some of the grit down. If it really needs to be sanded heavier, you'll be able to judge that as you're doing it. If anything, the grit usually wears down after a few years, making it a little easier to sand, but would require at least one, maybe two coats of TotalTread for a more true color and desired texture.

as advertised

Application was easy and it covered old blams very nicely. I like the non-skid properties - not sandy or gritty. Time will tell if this is a five star product. Let's see how it lives in the sun and how it handles use.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

I would buy again and have used it in the past
By Joe from Long Island

Verified Purchase

Great product have used on the decks of my wood boat and on the map ledge also / on the map ledge it cut down on glare and stopped things from sliding. On my fiberglass boat deck I made the mistake of rushing 2 coats / did the first coat outside temp 50 and under the shrink wrap it got up to 80. I did the second coat the next day and the first coat was not fully cured I had to take my sneakers off and I could see I was leaving impressions in the paint. I rolled on the second coat anyway and it covered the impressions that I made but it took over a week for it to dry before I could walk on it again.my mistake for being impatient just because the daytime temps in NY late March was mid 50's the night temps were low 40's.just make sure your first coat is fully dry before you apply the second coat.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
