Gripper Granules can be added to XO2 to gain a dramatic, aggressive texture. 

A Gripper application is slightly different than any other application.  The granules are heavy and if mixed in with a regular batch would just sink to the bottom of the coating.  This requires you to apply a base coat of XO2 to be sprayed down first.  Apply a base coat of XO2 at 50-55 mils.  Allow this base to tack over for about 45 minutes @ 70°F. 

Once the base has tacked over, mix an appropriate size batch with the Gripper Granule, referring to the Gripper Mix Chart.  Apply the Gripper mix as a texture pass for a uniform Gripper Granule finish.
