Application Instructions

  1. Be sure the surface is smooth, dry and clean of any dirt, wax, water, etc. Wipe with isopropyl alcohol or xylene if necessary.
  2. Select the desired location(s) and position(s) for the Marine Grip on the deck. If cutting from roll stock, cut to fit with scissors or a sharp blade.
  3. Surface temperature must be above 65 degrees Fahrenheit for the adhesive to bond properly to the deck.
  4. Peel 3”- 4”of the liner at one end of the grip tape and press onto the deck. Then peel off the rest of the liner and press the tape onto the deck.
  5. Use the end of a putty knife, J roller, or your palm, and firmly press the tape onto the deck as the liner is peeled off the adhesive. This helps prevent bubbles from forming under the tape.
  6. Repeat the above process for the rest of the tape. Maximum adhesive strength is achieved in 72 hours.

Care and Maintenance

Marine Grip can be cleaned with household cleaners, dishwashing detergent or boat cleaners such as Z Cleaner. Use a scrub brush and rinse with fresh water.

Avoid contact with gasoline, motor oil, paint thinner, acetone, MEK, xylene, or other petroleum products. They will damage the grip tape.

Replace worn or damaged Marine Grip.

Removal and Replacement of Marine Grip

Removal of Panels 
Start peel up at one corner, pull the grip tape toward the other end of the tape. Use a metal scrapper or putty knife and slide under the tape as you peel back the grip tape.

Removal of a Section 
If a section of Marine Grip is to be replaced, use a sharp blade and cut out damaged area. 
Replace Marine Grip in the same pattern that was removed.

Removal of Adhesive 

  1. Apply an adhesive remover such as “Goop” or “Goo Gone,” and leave it on the adhesive for an hour. This softens the adhesive.
  2. Use a metal scrapper or putty knife, and scrape off adhesive.
  3. Wipe off any residue with a rag or paper towel.
  4. Clean the surface with household cleaner or dishwashing detergent.
  5. Rinse with fresh water.
