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.

Love It!
By Mother of the Bride from Arkport, NY

Verified Purchase

I used this paint on a solid surface deck that had been previously painted. After cleaning and preparing the old surface, this paint glided on, and covered beautifully with just one coat (rolled on in one direction, then rolled in opposite direction, keeping a wet edge while I worked).

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Color Accuracy?
By Hejira from Tierra Verde, Florida

The product is what they say, but I'm questioning the accuracy of the color chart. I wanted something subtle, so I chose light grey. Here is a photo of my boat. I haven't finished it yet, you can see the original color, and the Total Boat paint at the top. It looks as much blue as grey. I'm not happy with it. I was going to try the sand, but the color of Sand looks much stronger than the light grey, and that color appears to be stronger than the color chart. So...I'm not sure if I need another brand to get the color I want, and I'm going to have to go back and repaint what I already did.

I have used this several years in a row. I do it every year and it holds up very good..not happy the price went up 25.00 but it works great..also it would be great if Jamestown Distributors would open the store back up for customer convenience and get off the Covid wagon.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

It's okay, but I would probably pick another product
By Wes from New Orleans, LA

It's very easy to apply and reapply. I noticed after 3 years the deck was getting slippery. I followed the instructions and scuffed it up, taped off and reapplied. it was as easy as the original coat. However, i don't feel it is quite grippy enough when wet. Also, if left alone for too long, it gets really dirty and requires significant scrubbing to get the darkening stains that form. The worst quality is how hot the deck gets, you have to wear shoes in direct sun. Can be brutal on the bare feet.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend
