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

Free quick-start kit included with each order: Contains (2 ea) paint pots, (2 ea) stir sticks.

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.

Easy to use but long dry time.
By JoeV from Dunstable, MA

Verified Purchase

I used this product to paint the plywood cockpit sole in a 1987 Marshall Sanderling, catboat. The texturing additive stayed evenly distributed in the paint while applying. It did not settle to the bottom of the paint tray as other non-skid products I have used behaved. The downside, and partly my fault, was the 72 hour dry time. I applied the product in a cool 60->65 degrees fahrenheit two car garage under my house, with a high humidity. 24 hours after applying I opened both garage doors and had 3 fans moving warmer, dryer air into the garage and it still took 72 hours to dry. I have used other paints many times in the past that have dried in similar conditions within 24 to 36 hours.

Quite possibly the worst product I have ever used.
By Matt from Wyoming

Quite possibly the worst product I have ever used. Applied 3 thin coats. 3 weeks later it has the consistency of wet chaulk. Ordered "Kingston grey" and got baby blue. Now I have 100+ hours of sanding to remove this baby blue wet chaulk/grease. Contacted customer service and was sent another gallon. Very hesitant to use it after this debacle. Huge waste of time/money and I regret not using a different product to do it right the first time. Luckily I stopped short of doing the entire boat and only did half the boat. Probably could have boat hydro turf for the entire boat for less money by the time I am finished with this. Irreversible damage done to boat to remove this.

Wipes off on my fingernail after 3 weeks.
$500 in sanding pads to remove the baby blue grease. So much for the diamond plate pattern in my boat
Baby blue "Kingston grey"
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend
