Rhino type liner for deck?????

I am considering using a rhino type liner instead of paint on my deck, has anyone done this? There is a brand called Durabak that looks real good. They have many colors. I will use white ofcourse.
Any comments on this?

One of their regular uses for Durabak is non skid on decks. Their website shows examples , mostly commercial vessels though. I'd want to see it in person before trying it. I first heard of it on somebody's blog, but can't remember which one. I like their light grey. Here's the website
Cote-L Distribution Company
I have also heard good things about Kiwigrip

I have a friend who Rhino lined his Aluminum flat (South Louisiana) that he used to fish in the Atchafalaya Basin. It added more weight that he wanted and when he went out on a normal summer's day - within an hour or so, the dark rubbery material was so HOT that he had to stand for the rest of the trip.

I have also seen it on one fiber glass open fisherman in the off-white color - not sure what brand the liner was. It was nice for a while, the corners and edges (not even that sharp) started to peel or chunk off after a year.

Sorry I don't have a better report, but the two instances were not favorable.

Does the kiwigrip texture feel rubbery like the rhino bed liner type stuff?

I haven't seen it on a boat but I did see an entire Dodge 4x4 long bed truck done in black Rhino-lining. I bet it got really hot in the Texas summer sun!

KiwiGrip

No It does not feel rubbery...its water based and dries hard. with a very nice texture that is easy to do...you can even get it tinted to your desired color at Home Depot if you like...they have a nice website..

A friend of mine does this professionally for truck liners, this is what he had to say:
Quote:
. . . for this type of application you need to go to a Rhino Linings Dealer that is mobil. That is a completely different situation then what we do here in our commercial building in a controlled atmosphere with a booth. My friend is mobil and I have heard all about the overspray nightmares and more. For now, we have sprayed already over 250 units in about 2.5 years of our new business. So far so good but a very tricky polyurethane product with limitations with humidity, weather and adhesion being key # 1 of course like all coatings.
Good luck, let us know about it.

I redid my non-skid with Durabak a couple of years ago

It went on easily, covered imperfections well, and has great non-skid properties. But now that I have lived with it a few years I think I would use Kiwigrip instead.

The trouble with the Durabak is that it attracts dirt and is almost impossible to get completely clean. I can live with a little dirt on the tan surface, but the white I used on the cockpit sole and on the pop-top have turned a very ugly dirty grey. No amount of cleaning will bring them back. I painted over the pop-top with white polyurethane (not the best idea) and covered the cockpit sole with a grate.
