Epoxy Ester Floor Paint is a single pack, semi-gloss, epoxy ester floor coating for general purpose and light traffic areas.
An epoxy ester resin with great overall performance compared to traditional single pack floor coatings. Epoxy Ester Floor Paint has good resistance to scuffing and spillages of oil, petrol, detergents and dilute aqueous chemical solutions. White spirit based, it is generally compatible with most existing systems.
Epoxy Ester Floor Paint is suitable for use on concrete, stone, timber or primed steelwork. For easy application to light duty areas where regular cosmetic upgrades are organised.
All surfaces must be clean, dry, and free from grease, oil, laitance, dust and other contamination.
Bare Concrete: Remove dirt and contamination by detergent washing, flame cleaning or other appropriate means. For the best long term coating life, laitance should be removed by vacuum blast cleaning (recommended), power grinding or acid etching. If acid etching, more than one application may be required to produce a granular surface suitable for good adhesion. Vacuum blast cleaning should produce a surface profile appropriate to the thickness of the coating being applied. If laitance is not removed, it can detach in service along with the coating, leaving patchy areas of bare concrete.
Previously Painted Floors: Abrading (as well as thoroughly cleaning) the existing coating is always recommended to optimise adhesion. As Epoxy Ester Floor Paint has a mild solvent blend, there should be minimal reaction with existing coatings such as the lifting of old coating edges. A test area is recommended to confirm compatibility and that adequate adhesion can been achieved.
Wood Floors: Punch all nail heads down below the surface. Sand the surface down to clean, smooth wood using an industrial vacuum sander, cutting-in at edges with a hand sander. To give a smooth finish it is recommended to also lightly sand and vacuum between coats.
Steel Floors: Please contact our technical team for further details.
Must be mixed thoroughly by using a mechanical agitator before use. Agitate periodically to ensure paint remains homogeneous.
The concrete surface must be dry and at least 12 weeks old. The moisture content of the concrete should not exceed 6% when measured 25mm below the surface (with e.g. a Protimeter measuring in 25mm drilled holes filled with gel), or 14% when measured with a surface moisture gauge (such as a Protimeter WME (Wood Moisture Equivalent) gauge).
Only apply in conditions of good ventilation which must be maintained during drying and curing. Do not apply when rain, mist, sleet or snow are imminent. During application and drying time of the paint coating, the surface should be dry, the Relative Humidity should not exceed 85% and the substrate temperature should remain at least 3ºC above the dew point. Paint temperature should ideally be at a minimum of 15ºC.
