TotalBoat Wet Edge topside paint was designed as potentially the most durable and robust one-part paint available. Wet Edge has a useful life of 2-10 years, depending on UV exposure, wear and tear, and the quality of its application. As it is, Wet Edge is considered a high-gloss paint, which promotes longer UV stability, an easier surface to clean, and the ability to repel water better. These properties make Wet Edge a slick surface to walk on, with higher reflectivity of any solar glare. Adding a 1-part polyurethane flattening agent and non-skid media can help turn TotalBoat Wet Edge into a viable deck paint that will provide years of safe traction and durability. There are a multitude of flattening agents for 1-part paints as well as non-skid products available, so it's important to choose the non-skid that would best reflect the needs of the application. We also recommend that you perform a test sample, to ensure the flattening agent and the non-skid material perform as desired.
