    It looks like a good product. I have added sand on the paint when the paint is still tackie. I repaint over the sand with a final coat it does well for little or no cost. I use a jar and drill 1/16 holes through the lid (4 req'd), filled with sand a shake over the still wet paint. It takes practice to get the right pattern.

    Kiwi Grip is a really cool product! It's goopy with a paste like consistency that provides great non-skid. It's available in five colors, uses a proprietary roller pad, and covers 80 sf/gallon. Take a look at the videos on YouTube, they give a good idea of how it looks and how to apply.

    Kiwi Grip is used on large yachts with a painted finish which says a lot about the quality to me! It's even used by a few boat manufacturers in the mold to created the molded non-skid.

    I'm not affiliated with Kiwi Grip but do like the product.
