Anti slip paint granules

Has anyone used the paint systems that have a separate pack of anti slip granules?

Is there a difference between the size of these granules and say kiln dried silver sand - a tad cheaper!?

I used sand on the deck of your old Osprey and it worked fine. I'm doing a deck at the moment and am using International Interdeck which I think has a better finish though.

Hello Tim,

Well, the reason for asking is we've got this to do but last year the girlfriend thought she'd she'd mix some sand in for a textured finish in the bathroom - results; more like monochrome pebbledashing as all the grains of sand decided they liked being together more.

Didnt want to repeat the excercise!

In my experience the Interdeck paint works well for large areas.

For small areas I have found a good approach is to coat the required area with epoxy and then sprinkle sand onto the wet epoxy. Once cured, overcoat with epoxy / varnish / paint as required.

we just did ours in Jotun 2 pack and we are astonished with the results It's the best surface I've ever come across and I firmly believe the Gell will come off before the paint.

I's a lot dearer than a bag of sand and it takes a while to put on but I'd never use anything else

Cheers Rogue,

We've got some polyurethane paint "free" so were hoping to use that plus "granules" of some sort, the Blakes/International seem cheap enough for an experiment at about a fiver which is about the same as expensive block paving sand for a 25kg bag.

is Jotun non slip?

What price are the granules ? I don't remember them being that expensive when I did the Searider. Worked well as well.

I have used the international granules and they work far better than sand
