SoftSand — Rubber Texturizer Additive for Paint

SoftSand particles are rubber granules that offer a softer alternative to sand and other hard materials when used in non-skid applications. SoftSand rubber particles will help provide a comfortable, skid resistant surface, and will work in most urethane, epoxy, and acrylic coatings. SoftSand rubber particles can also be blended together, and used with paints to provide truly unique, functional and decorative coatings. Learn more…



Available in 8 colors, decorative blends can be created to match virtually any color scheme or enhance any colored coatings.

It is an excellent alternative to traditional sand as it does not contain free crystalline silica. It also weighs less than sand so it doesn’t settle as quickly when pre-mixed with paints. Learn more…
