NEEDED: "No Slip" for treated wood

11 posts in this topic

When treated wood gets wet it turns into green ice. I have not been able to find a product that will make it slip resistant. The old sand in paint won't work because it just sands itself off. I did have some luck with a two part epoxy paint and sand. Something that could be applied with a brush or roller would be good or a mesh of some kind that could be stapled down. With all the decks and ramps and docks, you would think someone would have come up with a solution.

I would think some of the paint on bedliner that has a rough surface would work.

I've never tried this on treated wood before, but have you thought of the non-slip shower liners?

I know places like 3M make some for industrial uses (sticky on one side and almost like a sandpaper on the other).

Just a thought.

If you need any of these let me know....

I just painted the basement steps at a rental unit w/ Kilz slip resistance. I chose a grey color and it is pretty rough. Worked very well on that wood and would put it on again. On wood that will get wet alot, I am sure you'll be fine with 2 maybe 3 coats. Hope that helped a little.

Herculiner is a bedliner kit that you can purchase at such places as Menards and Fleet Farm. I have used it for a number of different applications. I personally haven't used it on wood, but I know that you can. I've been very pleased with it.

I picked up some of the 3M brand "no slip" applications for my boat trailer and they work well. The packages I picked up (it was the 2" x9" design)were actually designed and marketed for steps in/out of hot tubs. Instead of being a sandpaper or hard texture, it is more of a rubber grip texture. (Does not hurt or tear up the bare feet)

They'd be a good choice for a dock...especially with the barefeet.

The stick on applications have a sort of contact cement as a glue that works well on non-porous surfaces but not worth a darn on something that the wet can soak up from below. First the edges come loose then they just come off. Perhaps if they could be applied with a waterproof wood glue they might work. I am replacing some of the boards in the most critical area with plastic deck boards with the grooved side up. I will let you know how it works. I also want to try that truck bed liner idea.

menards sells strips of metal mesh with diamond shapes 8 foot by 28 inch for $ 8 I found it in the building materials section and I think it is for under mortor or stuco. You can nail it down to the wood and is easy to cut

Put down a heavy coat of deck enamel. Coat wet paint with a heavy coat of dry,washed sand. After paint dries sweep off excess sand and recoat with deck enamel.

For heavy traffic areas put on a secont coat of enamel/sand/enamel. We use this to create non slip decks in the navy.

I used this on a plank walk way on my boat trailer and other projects with good success.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
