Non Slip deck finish

Came across a product that seems to do a good job for a non -slip finish
My deck was coated with "non slip paint" but had become a little slick, (especially when trying to get a good footing in a decent swell.)
So found this product at Home Depot. Comes as a thick black paste that you apply with with a plastic spreader. I masked a shape off and made a couple of enlarged footprints either side of my pod seat, to get a good grip. To make it even "grippier" I ridged the paste with a rulers edge to form a deeper tread.
The stuff dries in an hour or so and is rock hard. Sticks to all surfaces including fiberglass/wood metal etc
Great surface with no chance of slipping. Just hope it wears well, as it really seems to do a good job
cheers Dal

What is the stuff? An abrasive-laden plastic of some sort?

Sounds intriguing.

Thanks;

Think it's about $6 for the size shown usually. However I got mine at Dixieline lumber for $1.95 clearance. So cheap enough to give it a try.
Says it sticks to anything! (Which can agree with as got my fingers covered. ) Feels like carbide grit in an acrylic based paste that hardens in an hour.

Sounds good. Thanks for the info.

The anti-slip tape that the builder put down on the aluminum deck is peeling in spots. Not really needed, I suppose, but couldn't hurt, either.

Paint

West Marine has a water based house brand deck paint I have used on my boat that sticks and wears very well, I was sceptical about its longevity but it has worn very well...
