This is our hard wearing 2 pack acrylic grey floor paint. It is a fast drying paint which means it will be dry enough to touch within about 1 hour. It does however need a bit longer to cure properly so ideally you should leave it for as long as possible (at least 72 hours) before subjecting it to heavy traffic volumes.
The product is highly durable against abrasion and impact. It also offers strong resistance to oil, grease and water making it a good option for busy garages.
The paint is sold as a two component kit. You receive 12.5 liters of base paint and another 2.5 liters of hardener. When you are ready to paint, you add the hardener into the base and mix it together. It is very important to stir the mixture thoroughly at this stage. Once the hardener has been added to the base, you need to use the paint within 40 minutes or the paint will start to go hard in the tin and become unusable.
When you are getting ready to paint your floor, you should endeavour to get the floor as clean as possible and try to remove any oil or grease stains.
As a general rule, 1 liter of paint will cover about 5 square meters of floor with one coat. Therefore a 15 liter bucket will cover an area of roughly 75 square meters with one coat. This is only a rough guide and coverage will vary depending on the smoothness of the floor.
It is not recommended to paint a recently poured concrete floor. As a general rule, you should leave the floor to dry for 1 month for every inch of concrete in depth that has been poured. So for example if you poured a 6 inch concrete slab, you would ideally let it dry out for 6 months. This is to ensure that there is no moisture left in the concrete slab. The new concrete will be dry on top but there will still be moisture trapped in the bottom of the slab and this can peel off strips of paint as it is released.
The paint can be applied with a brush or roller. Use standard thinners or xylene for cleaning tools when you’re finished.
