Blotches in the Nonskid

Post by Chenier » Fri Oct 02, 2020 8:24 am

I've painted the cockpit bottom of my MF14 and applied nonskid. There were some "holidays" in the nonskid so I put down some more paint where needed and applied more nonskid. The "repairs" ended up as dark blotches. Here they are after a top coat of paint:

I think what I have is a "sponge" of nonskid material, held together by paint of course. Under this theory the dark would be from all the tiny holes between particles in the sponge. Perhaps if I sand them down and get them thin enough the splotch would go way. Maybe.

Anyone have experience with this and/or helpful words of advice?

Honestly, I think you should sand it all and put another coat down.

The color difference is probably related to mixing paint or some contaminant.

The addition of more paint will give you more wearability. I would mix the paint real, real well, hit those spots heavierish.
