The negative is it is porous tending to atmosphere stain (like diesel
soot from airport/roads) after a year and powders after longer. The method to solve that is put it on and then paint it with simple paint, urethane or whatever to protect it. It is cheap
and can be recoated by simple soap wash and go. It sticks to anything that is not grease. (use left over on concrete floors at doors, etc for anti slip). Overall the Durbak is a simple and inexpensive method of filing the micro cracks (about 20-25 mils) and then doing the deck repairs
as time permits over long term. Its base is xylene.
a new product is a two part urethane Grip Tide- made in the US in NC. It has decent non-skid and rolls out, flexible, and although only 15 mils does seal the micro cracks in gelcoat
. It is a urethane surface finish
(like awlgrip) and does not stain. Negative- application is heat sensitive and will kick off if applied when to hot-so small batches may be used
Grip Tide does not have a "hard" edge so tends to self level making a good patching/touch up finish that permits patching small areas and paint without a significant fade highlighting age of patch. This would as well work
with your schedule of many diffrent areas.
