Surface Grip

Slip-resistant additive

Surface Grip is a finely ground, slip-resistant polymer additive that enhances the slip resistance of film-forming sealers. It is designed for use with SpecChem products as well as most other manufacturers’ water-based and solvent-based film-forming sealers. This additive is ideal for application on surfaces prone to moisture accumulation such as pool decks, garage floors, driveways, patios, and walkways, ensuring improved safety and traction.

  • Enhances slip-resistance, improving safety on treated surfaces.
  • Increases abrasion resistance of the sealer.
  • Suitable for both exterior and interior applications.
  • Versatile in application, suitable for use with a sprayer, roller, or brush.
  • Acts as a flattening additive to produce a matte finish.

Tech Sheet
Safety Sheet



  • Surface Grip is compatible with various SpecChem sealers such as Cure & Seal, SurfaceShine, DecoShine Plus, AquaShine, and CrystalShine.
  • A small test area is recommended to verify compatibility with non-SpecChem film-forming sealers.

Mixing Instructions

  • Slowly stir Surface Grip into the sealer to ensure it is completely wet out and evenly distributed throughout the mixture.
  • Mix thoroughly before and during the application to maintain consistency.

Application Methods

  • Spray application is recommended for best results, though smaller areas can be effectively treated with a brush.
  • Do not re-roll wet areas to avoid uneven texture.
  • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for substrate preparation and sealer application.


Available in 3 oz bottles (24 per case) and 15 oz bottles (12 per case).

Shelf Life

When stored in the original tightly sealed containers, Surface Grip has a shelf life of two years from the date of manufacture.


  • Add 3 oz to a 1-gallon container of sealer.
  • Add 15 oz to a 5-gallon container of sealer.
  • Do not exceed 6 oz per gallon of sealer to ensure optimal performance.
