Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a primer or undercoat under KiwiGrip?

Generally - no. KiwiGrip can be applied over any sound, non-porous surface. Bare GRP is ideal as long as it has been abraded to a matt finish. Previous non-slip coatings (Interdeck, Deck Coat etc.) need only a scrub wash with a good quality detergent such as International Super Cleaner.

What preparation do I need for bare wood?

Wood is obviously a porous surface that needs to be sealed with either an epoxy or a metallic type primer before a water based product like KiwiGrip can be applied successfully.

What about Steel or Aluminium?

Both need a proper anticorrosive primer scheme before KiwiGrip can be applied.

Can I apply KiwiGrip over worn Treadmaster Diamond Pattern?

No. Treadmaster is a natural cork based product that will 'suck' the water content from KiwiGrip and ruin the curing process. Treadmaster and TBS type sheets need to be removed first. You do not need to be too meticulous about removing the epoxy glue residue as KiwiGrip will cover this completely if applied with the textured roller.

How long does it last?

The quoted life of a properly applied KiwiGrip deck is 10,000 sailing hours. It is a fantastically hardwearing and flexible coating that will stand the test of time better than any other product.
