    Default Getting board regripped in winter

    I usually do this myself, but given that most regrip options require a min temperature of 15c I am concerned that trying to do this in my unheated garage will lead to a sticky mess that does not go off?

    If that is the case, can anyone recommend someone who can do this for me in the Poole / Bournemouth area?

    Thanks

    I have used the non slip from Kbay at low temperatures and it worked fine.

    sailrepair s recommendation is RE DEK , I have some and there is NO temperature guide on the container, could be on the packaging, long gone.
    This product works ok, for grip and longevity, its applied with a small roller, it is a touch difficult to get smooth, the roller being about 12cm long, a brush would smooth the ridges some.

    I have used 2 spray can products.
    GOOP anti skid epoxy with grit
    Monster Paint clear deck grip

    both have warnings about temp 15--20C to set properly.

    I dont think these last so long as the RE-Dek, but do make a nicer coating, of course you have to tape off those areas of unwanted overspray.

    I would follow sailrepairs advise on temp, I only use this stuff outside, but dont remember it being particually bad on the nose

    Yes it is redeck and it is (I think) acrilic based. It can make the paint on the deck run. The aerosols are quick and easy but only last 6 months before you need to redo them. The 2 part packs, tend to be the most temperature sensitive.

    Cheers Chaps. Can either of you provide any advice as to whether I should go for either the spray can or the roller application. I do like the grip to be course?

    Thanks

    well both you apply multi coats so build up some , the spray I say you NEED more than one coat. No issue

    the Monster I mentioned is the better of the 2 I know.

    Iam working on a board so I sanded a old piece and sprayed the GOOP
    checked temp 10C, dried really fast, did thick coats.

    the Monster is a little more $$ than GOOP, not as much as the RE-DEK

    the GOOP has been on my one board 2 seasons but only sees limited use in April, is ok still

    they dont say anywhere what the product is, I used it over enamel and no issues.

    aside from the tape the spray is fine for me.
