I found to my cost that if you ever need to re do a floor that's done with sand you can't remove it even with a grinder it's very difficult
I was told either use sawdust with flowcoat or the proper flowcoat with plastic chips in
I took advice on this, the bird sand is so called because it is the stuff you get from pet shops to put in the bottom of the cage.
It is a white sand with small shell pieces mixed in. We put it in a plastic cup with holes punched in it to make a shaker. Rolled out gel, shook over sand, rolled over gel. It gave a decent non slip finish without being too aggressive but could I reckon be sanded out with 60 grit paper.
I am happy enough with it, cant comment on the other ways of doing it, this is the only one I tried so far!
