Polymetric particles are granules for non-skid applications where maximum asperity and traction is the goal. While most other polymer based non-skid additives are based on relatively soft polyethylene waxes, this was selected from a thermoset polymer family that is known for its hardness and toughness. It is an excellent alternative to traditional sand as it does not contain free crystalline silica. It also weighs less than sand so it doesn’t settle as quickly when pre-mixed with paints.
Add 1 pt / per 1 gallon of paint is what is recommended.
Perfect for 300 - 400 square feet of paint
Anti Skid Floor Coating Additive, 1 lb., Base Type Silica, Off-White
Mix right into paint - paint “encapsulates” the non-skid
Recommend only putting directly into the last coat of paint
Soft silica sand perfect for bare feet
Polymeric No-skid Compound is a non-skid paint additive that’s added to flooring surfaces to provide sure footing on a slippery surface. May be brushed on or rolled.
Mix your own non-slip finish - Any finish can be transformed into a non-skid deck finish by the addition of Polymeric No-Skid Additive. This additive consists of man-made plastic spheres, which are regular in shape. They have a low tendency to collect dirt, and excellent non-skid properties. Apply the 2nd coat of paint with Polymeric No-Skid Additive mixed in.
Hand Broadcasting Method - Roll on a coat of paint, and while it is still wet, sprinkle the Non-Skid as required to obtain the texture of our choice. It is best to put the Non-Skid in a flour sifter or salt shaker to dispense the compound. Avoid heavy application, which will not assist in providing a more slip resistant surface. After the paint has been allowed to dry overnight, remove the excess Non-Skid.
Floor Grip is excellent in marine applications, on steps, walkways and ramps. Provides a beautiful finish that is resistant to color fade, abrasion and the effects of ponding water. It will fill and seal small cracks. Excellent for use on boat decks, ramps, walkways, and on marine infrastructure. Will adhere to most any surface including fiberglass, aluminum, wood, steel, masonry, brick, cement and stucco. Recommend SM-664D Etching Primer for aluminum or fiberglass. Provides a durable non-skid finish with excellent adhesion and superior resistance to abrasion, marring, chipping and cracking.
