ViterFloor 276 polyurethane floor paint is a durable, high-quality floor coating for general purpose use within light traffic areas.
Priming: prime bare concrete areas by thinning the first coat of ViterFloor 276 with 10-20% of 1050 Thinner to act as a sealer
Overcoating: overcoat either wet-on-wet, or after a minimum of 16 hours at 20oC. After 3 days at 20oC, light abrasion will be necessary in order to achieve optimum adhesion
Anti-slip: dependent on the degree of anti-slip required, aggregate can be broadcast onto the wet coating surface (of a full, unthinned coat) and allowed to dry. Surplus non-adhering particles should then be brushed off and further coats of ViterFloor 276 applied to encapsulate the particles.
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 ViterFloor 276 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
