How to use Firmtread Anti Slip Deck Coating
Firmtread® Anti Slip Deck Coating is an oil based liquid tint and is rated the UK's number 1 decking tint by Decking Hero. Available in clear and coloured tints to bring out the natural grain of the wood. Firmtread Anti Slip Deck Coating is different to a paint since it will not entirely block out the finish or the colour of the wood, instead it will enhance its natural beauty.
Inevitably decking will weather and start to look past its best. Give it a makeover with Firmtread® Anti Slip Deck Coating and your decking will not only look good but it will be safe to walk on too.
Your decking must be completely dry before you apply Firmtread® Anti Slip Deck Coating. Do not apply in cold, damp conditions or if rain is forecast that day. Lichen, algae or grease and oil deposits should be removed for the best possible finish. You can wash your decking with water and a mild detergent and give it a good brushing with a stiff broom, but leave to dry thoroughly.
Stir the product well. Apply by brush or mini roller, wearing gloves. We recommend two coats for maximum protection. The more coats applied, the darker the final result. Stained or painted wood Firmtread® Anti Slip Deck Coating is designed to bring out the natural grain of your wood. If your wood has been stained or painted, the product may not entirely block out the previous colour since it’s partially translucent to reflect the surface of the timber. Multiple coats will help, but it is advisable to carry out a test area to make sure you are happy with the finish.
