SoftSand Rubber Non-Skid Paint Additive

Add SoftSand Rubber Particles to urethane, epoxy, and acrylic coatings to create an attractive, flexible, skid-resistant surface that feels better, looks better, and lasts longer than sand or other abrasive non-skid paint additives. Great for added safety on boat decks, hand grips, walkways, patios, pet ramps & more.

These spongy rubber granules are softer than standard abrasive non-skid additives, making them more comfortable to walk or kneel on. High-quality, durable granules have color pigment throughout, unlike other rubber non-skid additives made from recycled car tires—so the granules wear evenly & consistently, with no change in color. The long-lasting, stain-resistant surface remains attractive and easy to clean.

Choose White or Beige in Fine, Medium, or Coarse grade particles in 1/4 Pint, Pint, Quart Sifter Bottle, and Gallon sizes.

Soft Sand Non-Skid - Fine


Great product! The 1 pint bags are too small. I was only able to barely complete the cockpit decking. Spectacular results. I used the Soft Sand - Fine and recommend a good 100% coverage not sparse broadcasting. You need the right size sifter to accomplish this.. .

This works well


I bought the fine to sprinkle and was very happy. I wanted something more course and ordered the paint additive by mistake. I used this as a sprinkle onto wet paint and it worked just as well.

Perfect surface for safety and appearance.


I was going to use KiwiGrip but was looking for alternatives that were less course in appearance for the restoration of a Herreshoff America Catboat. I came across this product and gave it a try. I applied it by putting down one coat of Kirby's paint and applied the Softsand while the paint was still wet. Once it dried, I vacuumed up the excess (which you can collect and use again) and applied another coat of paint. The result was a soft yet slightly textured surface on my deck that was safe as well as not tearing up your feet or knees and looked great. I have aYouTube channel for my boat's restoration and will be producing the episode where I apply and review this product (Search YouTube for The Salvation Navy if you want to see it, released soon). I highly recommend this product and will certainly use it again anytime I need an economical, low maintenance, durable and safe non-skid marine surface.
