Removal of anti slip floor paint

Hi guys and girls,

I've managed to remove the jockey seats ready for new bench seat and flexiteak but does someone know an easy way to remove the old blue anti slip deck paint??

I was going to try and sand it but I'm not sure if it's the same as antifoul and would give off any fumes??

Thanks in advance

Craig

Any sanding job you should be wearing a mask so just assume it's harmful and Wear appropriate gear
How successful you are at sanding depends on whether someone chucked sand in to make it none slip or used the proper polygrains or sawdust
If it's sand you'll go through a million disks trying to remove it because the sand is as abrasive as the disks

It looks more like tiny air holes than grit, so I'm not sure to be honest. It has to come off somehow as I can't lay the teak stuff until it's all up and gone.

It's gonna be a hard job I can see it

Someone was saying to use a hot air gun and a scraper to see if that makes a difference.

Will let you know how I get on. Gonna do it tomorrow

Hopefully it's not sand I used 60g sanding disks on a 9" grinder but it was tearing the shit out the disks I tried hard grinding disks but it was putting gouges in the deck which took longer to get flat
If it's been done with none slip flow coat that has grains of plastic in they sand OK and sawdust is sometimes used, it Sands OK

Thanks mate, not too fussed about any gouges or scrapes as it's going to be covered. Just want it up, so gonna try going abrasive

Had to use a heat gun and a scraper in the end. The paint was just chewing up sanding discs.

Gonna just finish it flat with some 120. What a horrible job.
