    GripTex Non Skid Additive

    To be used with AwlGrip and AwlCraft 2000 Topcoat Boat Paints to give a Non-Skid texture for deck and step areas. Anti-Slip and non-skid additives are mixed directly with topcoats, or added to a "tacky" paint surface. People have had success adding this polymeric GripTex particles to varnishes (actually 2-part clear polyurethanes), as well as other similar two-part and multipart polyurethane boat paint finishes. Available in fine, coarse and extra coarse. *** SUGGESTED FOR PROFESSIONAL USE ONLY ***


    • Type: Polymer bead
    • Color: Translucent
    • Use air atomized spray equipment. Fluid tip must be at least .070". Do not use airless or air assist airless spray equipment

    Mixing and Reduction For spray application, add 4 oz/113.4 grams by weight of Griptex non-skid additive to each gallon of mixed color base and converter.

    Application Instructions Griptex particles may be added to mixed topcoats and applied by spray. Dry particles may be broadcast or sprinkled into a tacky paint film. Do not apply to surfaces warmer than 105 F or colder than 55 F. Do not attempt to cure below 55 F (13 C).

    Cautions Previously painted surfaces must be tested for compatability before applying Awlgrip products. Gelcoat non-skid areas need to be thoroughly cleaned abraded. Use Scotch-brite, water, abrasive cleaners, and stiff brushes to ensure proper cleaning. For final removal of abrasive residues and sanding dirt, wrap a stiff brush in clean cotton cloth. Scrub the sanded surface with the cloth wrapped brush. Brush bristles force cloth into the grooves and valleys of the old non-skid, removing contaminants from the surface. Change cloths frequently. Flush the surface with fresh water and allow to dry before wiping with Awl-prep.

    Note Even on small jobs, long term performance is improved if surfaces are primed before an Awlgrip or Awlcraft 2000 Topcoat is applied.
