Well, you can read the article on Jim's site, but from what I saw I don't think it would peel off. At a 4:1 ratio (Jim recommends 3:1 for the floor) it puts a very thin coating of silicone on the material that seems to bond nicely to the material. I did the floor on the inside for the tackiness. The only thing I could see being annoying about doing it on the outside of the floor would be that the tackiness might pick up dirt. I would think it would definitely provide some resistance though.
