Masking sequence for topside painting

2 posts in this topic

I purchased KiwiGrip to apply over my boats worn non-skid deck.  As I got into the project I decided I should also repaint the area on the topside that does not have non-skid.  I purchased some Polyurethane Topside Paint locally for this purpose.  My question is, is it OK to get the Poly onto the surface where the KiwiGrip will be?  Or is it necessary for me to mask off the area where the Kiwigrip will be?  My hope is that it OK and I will only have to mask the Poly as I apply the Kiwigrip.    

 

Also, I see some people say use Blue Tape, some say use Green some say use the Green plastic tap.  What is the best tape for masking these lines?

 

Thanks for any input.

The kiwi grip should be ok over the poly as long as it has fully cured.

As far as the tape goes if you have tight radius's its best to lay down a thin(1/2") fine line tape and then go over that with the 3/4 or 1" blue tape so that you have ample protection.

I hope this has helped 

Good luck with the project.
