Yeh, use the correct grit/sand and a radiator roller (long handle) with a foam roller. Paint the area first, sprinkle the grit over (a little at a time) and apply a second coat staight away making sure the you've even coverage of the grit and the results you want. Painted treadplates and operator platforms this way for years and had no probs (see website).

You only need to degrease after you have done all the other prep work.

Adding the grit is like putting sugar in coffee, just pour it in the tin and stir. Adding the thinners I thought I had put too much in but it worked well.

The reason I scrubbed my deck three times if it must be known was I tried to glue non slip rubber matting down but the water got underneath and it made an 'orrible mess and couldn't be cleaned easily so ripped it all up and went down the paint option which is much cheaper and you can just touch up any scratches at the end of the season.

Don't listen to Pete7 hes full of it (red marks all round boy's) you can touch it up anytime you want to!

I think the above advice covers it but you really do have to get a good key so don't be timid with the abrasive.

If you do a good job you can come down and do mine if you want to!

ive used anti slip addatives in paint for steps before and i think youll find
The grit addative is nothing more than kiln dried silversand , much cheaper if bought from toys are us or early learning.
