Non Slip Marine Deck Paint
Non Slip Deck Paint is a single pack polyurethane paint with an aggregate already mixed in which makes a rough, textured finish that is ready to use of the can (after you have thoroughly stirred the paint)
Non Slip Deck paint which is suitable for Metal, Wood and primed Fibreglass/GRP decks where light foot traffic will occur.
The most cost effective way and ease of application is on your first coat apply standard deck paint and then after 12-24 hours apply the second coat non slip.
The non slip aggregate reduces the risk of slip however like any painted surface when wet can still be slippery.

Ensure you stir your paint thoroughly prior to painting as the aggregate within the paint may rise and sit onto of the paint. If the non slip is not stirred thoroughly and start to paint you will have a thick build of non-slip and as you use more of the paint the non slip will get less.
Make sure you use a mixer on a slow running drill, pallet knife or a broom stick that reaches the bottom of the can and mixing should take place for 3-5 mins to ensure all the content is properly mixed together to avoid colour and or drying problems.

If you are applying to bare wood decking, we recommend you thin the first coat 20% to ensure the paint impregnates the wood and will act as a primer / sealer. Then after 12-24 hours apply the second coat un thinned.
Thinners required are White Spirit T0001. If thinning is required when applying by a brush or roller start by gradually adding 5% but do not thin more an 10% as the paint won’t cover
Application - Painting over existing paint
Step 1 - Check suitability of the product to the existing paint. We recommend you try a sample area first.
Step 2 Clean and Abrade -
- Make sure the existing paint is in good condition prior to painting, then lightly abrade to provide a key for good intercoat adhesion.
- If there is flaking paint this must be removed prior to painting.
- For any parts that has rusted you will need to sand the rust back to the bare metal and spot prime with the appropriate primer.
- Ensure substrate is clean of any dirt, oil, or grease
Step 3 Prime – This step is down to personal preference, depending on the condition of the existing paint or if you are changing a dark colour to a light you may want to add one coat of primer.
