HOW DO I CLEAN THE AREA PRIOR TO PAINTING?:
For Gelcoat and Fiberglass use Acetone. For Non-Ferrous Metals and Aluminum use a Industrial Degreaser and aluminum acid-etch preperation. On Concrete use Trisodium Phosphate (TSP), use a firm bristle brush and rinse off thoroughly with clean water. Area must be completely dry before application. If necessary, use a heat source such as a large Hot Air Dryer. These products are available through most Hardware Stores.
Do I need to add Monster Grit Pumice Additive?
NO, Non-Skid Paint comes pre-mixed with Grit. Extra Grit Additive is sometimes recommended for applications such as Incline Ramps, and Stadium Steps. See SKU:MP-MGPI-260
Can I use any kind of thinner?
NO, Non-Skid Paint is a Water Reducible Epoxy-Ester Coating and can only be thinned with water. Add no more than ½ quart of water per gallon for first coat only. (NOTE: Topcoat must be applied directly from pail without thinning)
Why do I need to stir Non-Skid Paint so thoroughly and not just shake it up real good?
The Grit material in Non-Skid Paint settles to the top of can, and sometimes sticks to the lid. This is because the Grit is lighter than the Epoxy and will stay suspended and not sink to the bottom of can after thoroughly mixed. Its best to scrap any Grit that is stuck to the lid back into the paint with a wood stir-stick; so as to not loose the normal textured surface. Mix well before and during application.
How do I clean Non-Skid Paint off my hands and tools?
Non-Skid Paint is environmentally safe to use. Easily clean hands and tools with warm soapy water immediately after application.
How long will it last before I need to recoat?
It is recommended that on high traffic areas you recoat once a year. On areas that do not get a lot of high traffic you can recoat once every two years as needed.
Whats the best way to keep Non-Skid Paint clean?
Clean Non-Skid Paint with warm water mixed with any mild soap or detergent. Use a firm bristle brush and rinse off thoroughly with clean water.
Do I need to apply a primer?
Non-Skid Paint is self-priming on Fiberglass, Gelcoat, Epoxy, Magnesite Decking, and Concrete surfaces. On wood substrates use a exterior oil base or latex wood primer. For metal surfaces apply an exterior metal primer over clean, dry metal. This will also provide additional rust prevention.
