Interlux Interdeck Polyurethane Non-Skid Deck Coating

Interlux Interdeck Polyurethane Non-Skid Deck Coating is an excellent, easy to apply slip resistant polyurethane finish for decks. Interdeck contains a fine aggregate and will apply easily on all substrates. Interdeck provides a low sheen finish that helps protect against dazzle from sunlight reflected off decks. A tough polyurethane resin protects decks against everyday wear and tear. Interdeck is suitable for all substrates.

Takes a long time to cure and does not hold up scuffs


After allowing two weeks to cure in normal summer temps - was still soft and was easily scuffed by chair legs. This paint may be okay for walking surfaces but I would not use this on any surface where paint will contact something hard like chair or table legs.

The color charts though!


I ordered the "Cream"... which rolls on like buttercup yellow! Not Jamestown's fault! I will be repainting with something else in the Fall! Easy application and good non-skid though!

no complaints exactly as I requested.


love this deck paint non-skid. even though it's a one part paint it last for quite a few years.




Looks nice, hope it lasts


Looks great and feels grippy, hope it lasts a few years. One coat seemed to cover nicely.



Very pleased with this product.


Excellent nonskid deck finish. Easy to apply.

Worked great and was easy.


This was really easy to use, and looks pretty good. Not a super aggressive non-skid paint, which is exactly what I wanted. Re-painted the cockpit sole on my C&C 24 with a foam brush and it came out great. If I were doing it again I'd probably use a foam roller but I'm very happy with the results.




Simply the best


I researched many nonskid deck paints before settling on this one. I first thought it was not a nonskid paint once it dried (and it dried very quickly) because I could not see any grit. But the grit is fine like a 1200 grit emory paper. Your shoes grab it like glue with no sliding. It does not tear up the feet of a barefoot sailor either. It goes on easily and covers well in one coat. What more could you ask for in a nonskid deck paint? Two thumbs up from this sailor!!!

There is a better way.


My entire boat is painted with Interlux. The Interdeck Non-Skid went on easily. Stained Easily. Didn't Clean Easily. I chose grey - MISTAKE - very hot deck in the Florida sun. Repainted the deck with Interlux Brightsides Blu-Glow White Paint, Interlux Polymeric non-skid beads & Interlux Flattener. P




HORRIBLE product...use Interlux Brightsides w/poly beads!


For 3 years I made the mistake of using Interlux Interdeck on my non-slip surfaces on my Sailboat. I've never seen a paint so easily (and permanently) stained, so difficult to clean, and so prone to wear. The Interlux Brightsides with the added polymeric non-skid beads are VASTLY superior to Interlux's Interdeck Non-Skid comparison. STAINING:My biggest frustration with their lousy Interdeck product is that it STAINS so incredibly easy (bird poo, spilled beverages, shoe marks, etc). Brightsides has a Teflon additive that I've found is VERY easy to clean. Brightsides normally has a high-gloss finish, but if you add their polymeric non-skid additive it turns into a nice semi-gloss/satin finish which is so good that I literally sprayed my entire top deck with it since I walk virtually everywhere on it. DURABILITY:The durability of the Brightsides is much, much better as the Interdeck product needed yearly application just to keep up which is just too expensive and time-consuming. Deep power-washing (which is what you'll need to do with decks coated in non-skid of any kind to keep them clean) REALLY took a toll on the Interdeck product but doesn't even phase the more durable Brightsides paint.SLIPPAGE:Because I was able to mix my OWN bead-to-paint ratio rather than having it pre-mixed, I have what I feel is superior coverage of non-slip surface on my deck. I sprayed the ENTIRE top deck with 3 coats using an automotive sprayer and added the polymeric beads to the paint BEFORE I sprayed each coat. I added the maximum 6oz per gallon of polymeric beads as recommended. The beads are worth the money and don't even think of using sand!COLOR:The whitest shade of the Interdeck looks an off-white color (similar to Brightsides "white"), whereas Brightsides has the brightest white available ("blue glo" white) which will make all of your neighbors exceedingly jealous. I will NEVER use the Interdeck product again, but I'm heartily recommending Brightsides!




Trying too hard


Put this on my boat for racing in SF bay, lots of wind and lots of water. Had people comment on how slippy the deck was (some super experienced sailors) after using this paint, then added interlux grit to remedy the situation - still not a touch on the kiwi grip decks. The particles in iy may just be too fine. those particle also pick up and hold dirt however very effectively.
