NON SLIP TO HOT

HI some help or advice on the color for anti slip paint, currently I have a light grey poly. Two pack non slip on the decks, (cat, new build just been launched). The problem is here in the tropics it gets to hot to walk on with bare feet on hot days when the temperature is 26 degrees and above, the white on the deck is about 20 degrees Celsius cooler than the grey,
Just do it over again with a lighter color, white, and whatís white like to keep clean, suggestions appreciated

Re: NON SLIP TO HOT

Any color other than white is going to get hot. Redo in white.

Re: NON SLIP TO HOT

“Grey” isn’t just one shade of color. It sounds like yours may be a darker shade than necessary. The problem with white is that it always looks dirty.

Re: NON SLIP TO HOT

My decks were a grey non slip (some type of paint with an aggregate mixed in) and were very hot. I redid all of them with KiwiGrip in white (though the rep at a boat show said none of their colors get hot) with an aggressive finish. I love it. Decks are air temperature, and I feel secure walking in all conditions. I hate wearing shoes so have tough feet and I don't notice the agreesive texture. YMMV


The white is just enough difference from the Brightsides white I used for the non walking portions that I still get a "pattern" appearance.

Re: NON SLIP TO HOT

Decks white, covered cockpit (catamaran) Ivory. Antislip: home-ground Coconut shell in PU-paint. Tried many industrial Antislips and sand before, coconut i like most, lightweight & cheap, inclined parts i ground rougher.

Re: NON SLIP TO HOT

We used acrylmeric sportkote white for our non-skid. It is good for temperature, but it is very difficult to keep clean; however, it is the best non-skid we've ever used! My "clean gene" doesn't much care for the appearance, but my body loves the secure feeling!

Our previous non-skid was a light grey, but it was a whole lot hotter in the tropics. Jim measured the difference between the white and the grey, but I no longer remember how many deg. C. it was. Sorry.

Always used it on the decks on my dive boats. Good grip when wet and comfortable to walk on in bare feet. Didn't notice a heat problem with the light grey, but then I am 51' north. One extra advantage is that the grey didn't fade so we could touch it in at the end of the season and it didn't show. Needs a very thorough cleaning several times. I used a green pad scourer and jif, 3 times on the first boat. No problems. Wasn't so methodical on the last boat and it peeled in a couple of places. Also the first coat was slightly thinned.

We use Interdeck, very easy to apply and it works, we have even used it over old treadmaster, we had Grey and then changed to Cream which was much cooler. WE have also used White but it more work to keep clean

Re: NON SLIP TO HOT

The only two colours I've ever found that don't get hot are white (no surprises) and cream (mildly surprised). Even the lightest of greys will get too hot to stand on in the tropics.

Re: NON SLIP TO HOT

Rock and a hard place. The "whiter" the paint, the more light is reflected which minimizes cooling. The immediate downside is that it can cook people by reflecting the light. Very good sunnies needed.

Also, as a general rule, paints that are inherently textured are going to be more "non-skid" but generally harder to keep clean.

40 years in the tropics and I use recoatable polyurethanes with whatever fine sand or glass beads I can get. The ability to recoat without sandiing etc. is crucial

Re: NON SLIP TO HOT

Would agree white is the way to go. After a bad experience w/Interdeck, we switched to Kiwigrip.

Very easy to apply and you can make it as nonskid/textured as you would like We use it in the dinghy also.

Best of all it passes the barefoot test. The cooler decks will also keep below decks cooler.
