KiwiGrip Non-Skid Deck Coating

KiwiGrip is a durable, non-skid deck coating system developed by New Zealand yachtsmen specifically for use on boats. Most other traction or anti slip coatings are simply repackaged industrial products.

This hard acrylic polymer provides a durable, homogeneous, elastic surface. It spreads quickly and easily. By using one of KiwiGrip's proprietary rollers (sold separately) and by varying application technique, the texture can be adjusted from fine to aggressive for the right amount of traction.

In late 2011, KiwiGrip introduced a new, improved formulation for longer working time and improved color retention. Note: the cream color is now a slightly different shade compared to earlier batches.

How is KiwiGrip different from traditional non-skid coatings?

Most non-skid surfaces are created by mixing in a gritty additive during the painting process. This makes it tricky to get the additive-to-coating ratio right. In addition, the non-slip properties wear away with time and use.

Because KiwiGrip is a single part with no additives, it suffers none of the problems associated with non-skid paints that use sand, walnut shells, beads, rubber fleck, or other fillers. Anti-skid coatings with fillers tend to wear through and the fillers fall out. This makes decks slippery, hard to clean, and hard to recoat.

While you can apply it with a brush, there are rollers designed specifically for KiwiGrip. Using these rollers lets you work faster and easier than traditional spraying. The gel finish dries to form tiny peaks and valleys that form a high-traction surface impervious to the elements. Fine tuning the aggressiveness and amount of traction provided is as easy as using the rollers to change the size of the peaks and valleys.

I would NOT recommend this product

1

Most reviews are written shortly after product application.Yes, the grip is great and the first year or so still looks pretty good, But, after a couple or three years, the grip is still good....HOWEVER...it is impossible to keep clean.It looks terrible after the third and fourth year. No matter what I use or how hard I scrub it will not clean up.

Colors - yes you can tint to the color desired - however - the 3% maximum volume of tint limits you to approximately 4 ounces of tint to a gallon can. This means you cannot achieve darker more vibrant colors with this product. Also paint stores are really reluctant to work with you on this.Coverage - Yes the coverage listed is accurate - however this will give you a really thin and largely unsatisfactory job. I ended up using 5 gallons of product to achieve the desire thickness and appearance on my 20 x 8 pontoon deck. It does however look great.

New use for KiwiGrip

I've used KiwiGrip on my boat and it works as expected. However, I am also using it to patch cracks in my home's sheetrock. In the past, I'd patch it with mud and paint, but it would re-crack within a year. Now I patch with mud and KiwiGrip to match the texture then paint over the KiwiGrip and I have not had a single crack re-appear. It flexes instead of cracking.

KiwiGrip Non-Skid Deck Coating - Excellent product

For good quality results it is best to have at least two workers. One to spread the coating and one to apply texture with the special roller. Removing the painters tape is also helpful to have two people as the coating is still wet on the tape and can be messy.

Used it on the deck of a steel sailboat 4 years ago. Every couple of years I need to repair rust under the Kiwigrip and this stuff is easy to repair. I've also watered it down and refreshed the whole surface. Love this Product!
