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 have bought this product 5 times


This is a great product to work with AND it really works well when the deck is wet. Also if you go a little thin or miss a spot you can reapply just to that spot and not even tell.




Color change


Is there a way to add tini to your product to make the grey darker

Good stuff


I like this paint, I would recommend it for and non skid deck surfaces. I relocated some sail tracks on my boat and after filling old holes with epoxy and sand in surfaces the kiwi grip went on and sealed my deck. Great texture also.

Best Non Skid


Kiwi grip beats all other non skids on the market. Easy to put down. Easy to clean up. Can be color matched for your own custom color. All around the best non skid I have ever used.

I would NOT recommend this product


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 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.
