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, Kingston Gray, and White. These colors match our TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside paint colors.

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.


TotalBoat TotalTread should be applied in thin coats. 1-2 thin coats are recommended, for best results.
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 
Primers  TotalBoat Topside Primer, TotalBoat 2-Part Epoxy Primer (Metals), TotalBoat TotalProtect (Fiberglass/Metals), TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Barrier Coat (Metals) 
Application Temperature  50-90°F 
Application Humidity  0-90% 
Recommended Number of Coats  1-2 thin coats.

I used this paint for a large ramp going into my boat house/house boat. It feels good on bare feet, looks clean, and it is beading water nicely.




Paint that sticks so you don't slip!


Great product to apply. Six inch sponge roller worked out excellent on deck and cockpit areas. Use 1" blue painters tape to aid in defining application area.Thanks, Dave Milwaukee Harbor

Product worked great


With good prep this application was easy and turned out great. I'll recommend this to others. Painted the entire inside of my boat with one coat. Good coverage. Too soon to let ya'll know how it holds up though.

I would buy and recomend all the Total Boat products


Great paint. I've been painting floating docks for many years. I always used Pettit ShipnDek with Interlux sand additive from Jamestown Dist.. When they went out of business, I started using Total Boat's Total Tread. This product flows easily on all of my surfaces with the non-skid. This makes life easier for me as now I don't need to buy the Interlux non skid which I had to measure out from their can to the other paint I was using.Prior to using this product I had started using Total Boat - Underdog with great success. This is a soft, yearly bottom paint that goes on with ease and lasts a full season (For us, April to November) with NO barnacle buildup or grass. I have also started using your Wet Edge. Great range of colors and a great finish.

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.
