Utilizing Grit

June 12, 2018

Here are a couple tips on utilizing grit. Reminder that topcoat grit does NOT create skid resistance. It is for mar resistance only.

  • When broadcasting aluminum oxide for skid resistance it should go into the first topcoat or final topcoat. The size can vary from 24 grit to 70 grit and density can vary from .5 lbs. to 3 lbs per 100 sq ft depending upon customer’s needs.
  • When broadcasting grit, most applicators use the 3-finger method. On large-scale projects a blower will work and for smaller projects a large, plastic salt shaker (available at any restaurant supply). The key is to get consistent coverage.
