Thanks for the suggestion. Will take a look at this also.

The site is definitely not great. I can't see any picture of the product!

I can only see they are talking about some varnish on the page in your link. I am lost. Where is the non skid?

Re: Best Non Skid For Longevity??

A "nice to have" would also be a non skid that adheres to bare epoxy laminate without a primer step in between.

The truck bed liners do. The Interlux does. Interlux also makes both sand and the synthetic plastic particles. Any idea which is softer?

The Interlux looks better than the Awlgrip method. One step.

You need to go to the technical data sheets, but the best way is to contact them by mail. I think they are so busy with deliveries to super yacht industry, they do not much care about their site unhappily

On the other hand - if You are US based (as most on CF) it may be cheaper and more convenient to go with US product.

Anyway - good luck with Your search

We have used Tuffcoat on two boats now and the decks are still in great shape years after we applied the material. And our boats get used and abused. The Trawler Beach House: Transforming The Non Skid Decks . Chuck

Re: Best Non Skid For Longevity??

I have never seen a sprayed on non-skid that I think looks very good, or lasts particularly long. Over time the grit starts to wear thru first and you get bald patches.

There are a number of molded non-skid pattern makers (MAS as an example) that allow you to replace molded in non-skid. I much prefer this approach, but it is much more work.

A man can dream.... a man can dream.

I suppose a really good paint that can just adhere through keying into an epoxy substrate is the dream.

Mostly trying to skip sanding steps.

Looks like Anchorage guy's stuff requires no sanding. Can I also do a 545 to non skid finished product with no sanding?

As a side question, how about going from a neat epoxy barrier coat up to an ablative bottom paint without sanding? Possible?

I used sandblasting sand for non-skid, applied on top of wet gelcoat and overcoated with more gelcoat. In the early years it was, by far, the best gripping non-skid I have ever seen. It also tore the skin off nicely with very little effort . Once the sharp points wore down it was not very effective, and hell on wheels to remove for a recoat.

I regularly use Interlux's polymeric spheres mixed with varnish for the top of the bowsprit. It is a very good non-skid. I can't say how long it lasts because the varnish life is the limiting factor. It is very easy to sand smooth and overcoat.

Previously I had used a 3M tape product on the sprit, which worked well for several years. Unfortunately it meant that I couldn't see that water was getting into the wood under the tape (and varnish). There is a reason one wants to use varnish instead of paint over wood - leaks become obvious.

Ditto!

I mixed the gray and white to match my Seattle Gray trim. I missed a small spot on one of my first coats and I sure could tell when I stepped on it when wet even though I couldn't see it.
But to put on another coat on an old deck, as long as it's not faking/peeling, one just uses a de-glosser (liquid sandpaper or equivalent) with a stiff brush prior to a new coat. You just have to prep the deck good on the first coat. I used a 40 grit sand paper on a orbital sander.

Re: Best Non Skid For Longevity??

As an answer to your side question. I used Interlux 2000 barrier coat for my bottom, actually all of the boat. (Steel). I would recommend inside the 72 hour point for additional coats or products. My interdeck is after their Perfection which is very hard and dangerous if wet. In a couple of small areas the adhesion was a problem but I mean small. Light scuffing would help but touchups are undetectable.

One does have to make sure the sand stays mixed in the solution. The best way I found is to mix it well at the bottom and pour what you need into a roller pan. If you need more, mix well again and add to the pan.
