TotalBoat TotalTread Non-Skid Deck Paint

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 or roller. 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 3 colors: Sand Beige, Gray, and White.

Free quick-start kit included with each order: Contains (2 ea) paint pots, (2 ea) stir sticks, (1 pr) latex gloves.

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.

Thinning (Brush/Roll Application)  Can be thinned 5-10% with TotalBoat Special Brushing Thinner 100, if needed. 
Thinning (Spray Application)  Thin with xylene, typically 15-20%. Thinning percentage varies by sprayer type and conditions. 
Cleanup  TotalBoat Special Brushing Thinner 100 or TotalBoat Dewaxer & Surface Prep

Great alternative to the higher priced deck products!


I used this over the Total Boat Primer and got exceptional results. Just follow the prep instructions and you will be satisfied. I did find that when cutting in with a brush I got much more of the anti -skid material in the areas where the brush was used and not so much with the roller, although it appears to be adequate. One coat coverage and one a part Paint made the application simple. Looks Great- hopefully will hold up for a long time.

Great product.


It was exactly what I needed.




Brush on tread.


I needed a surface with grip on a metal ramp for a wheelchair; TotalTread does the trick. I wire brushed the surface before cleaning with acetone. I did the same thing to the lip on a wheelchair lift. I applied two coats of TotalTread and let it dry for 24 hours before use. The grip is improved and hasn't come off yet.

I have purchesed this product again.


I did my swim platform 3 years ago holding up very well. I am going to do my aft deck this summer. Easy to apply.

I use it on the deck of my 52 year old wooden sailing trimaran. It is fantastic.

Total tread, gray is it


Great product, comfortable on bare feet.




Fades significantly in a year or two


I repainted the deck and sole of my 23 Seacraft a couple of years ago with sand beige when this product was introduced. Prepped to the letter and got a great result. A year later I decided to change some cleat locations and thought I could cut in a few spots. No dice. The paint had faded very noticeably. After 2 years, I compared a test piece I had in my workshop to the paint on the boat and it was two different shades entirely. JD has a nice product here BUT they need to put in some UV stabilizers! I am not sure I would use it again. I wonder if the white paint holds up better?
