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.

Great paint.
By No Dead Lines from Florida Keys

Followed the instructions for prep work. Applied it with a small foam roller and it went very well. I used 2 coats and I am very impressed with the anti skip. Not to gritty and easy to walk on. Cleaning is easy. I like that should I need to I can just touch it up later.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Great Paint
By Tiger from Florida

Easy to apply. beautiful finish. Easy yet non slippery on bare feet. Needed a full quart to coat my 18ft Bayliner floor. Just needed 1 coat because there was an existing Total Tread already there when I acquired the boat.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Outstanding product
By Captain Ty from Cape Hatteras North Carolina

This stuff is amazing, lotta taping. I used a shot glass for the corners, But well worth it. Super easy to use. Just make sure to go extremely thin on the coats trust me. The second one comes out great. I run charters in Cape Hatteras NC. It was time to not slip anymore 🤣 www.Kitehatteras.net

Sweet

Looks like 💩 before

Needs more sand
By Dave from Kentucky

Verified Purchase

Good deck paint but I had to add more "play sand" to make it truly non-slip - just not coarse enough. I sprinkled sand and back rolled it into the paint - that process helped remove roller marks too - using a small 3/8" knap mini roller worked the best. Also, it took 2-3 coats to build up thick enough but the coverage is very good. Seems durable enough when cured a few days. Would definitely recommend over more expensive and complicated alternatives.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Deck pain went on easily with a sort knap roller. The real review should be submitted this time next year after we see how the product holds up to a year of weather.
