Description

Description

Watco Basics Floor Paint is based on a tough solvent based polyurethane formula which makes it ideal for general use. It can be applied over existing well bonded paint, or onto bare concrete, making cleaning easier. A separate unit of aggregate is supplied with Anti Slip Floor Paint, which is mixed into the paint to provide a finely textured slip resistant surface. For heavier wear areas, or areas where vehicles will be parked, we recommend a Epoxy Resin Floor Paint to resist ‘picking’ under parked car tyres.

Recommended areas of use

  • Any concrete floor subject to light-medium use.
  • Can also be applied to wood and metal.

Application

Application

Surface preparation

Clean and prepare bare concrete using Watco Basics Acid Etcher.  This will remove light grease and oil deposits.
To remove heavier grease and oil use Watco Bio D  This can also be used to remove grease from existing paint. 
If over coating existing paint, please ensure it is well bonded.  Remove any flaking or poorly bonded paint using a floor scraper for smaller areas or hire a grinder for larger areas. Smooth, glossy paint should be lightly abraded to provide a key.
Make sure the surface is clean and dust free before continuing. 
Bare concrete must be porous to allow the first coat of paint to penetrate and key.  If in doubt pour a small amount of water on the floor.  If it soaks in, the concrete can be painted.  If it beads up because the concrete is very smooth and dense, perhaps power floated, do not proceed, but refer instead to Watco Powerfloat Primer
New concrete should be at least 2 months old and the Acid Etcher used to reduce alkalinity.

Repair

Holes in excess of 5mm deep can be filled with Watco Basics Floor Repair Mortar, or providing the floor is level, Watco Pourable Repair Mortar.
For repairs which need to be ‘feather edged’ to nothing, or for repairs to damaged joint edges, please refer to Watco Concrex epoxy resin repair mortar.  This should also be used if repairing broken kerb edges or step nosings.

Application

Check the air temperature is around 15°C and the floor temperature at least 10°C. 
The surface must be dry.
Stir the paint thoroughly. 
If using the Anti Slip Floor Paint, add the whole tin of aggregate to the 5L paint size, or half the tin to the 2.5L. Stir the aggregate thoroughly into the paint.
Apply using a roller.  Do not apply thickly.
Use the roller to work the paint into the surface of bare concrete.
A brush can be used for cutting in around the edges.

Limitations

Avoid applying in cold (below 15°C) conditions, instead see Watco Cold Set Coating.
Do not use in areas where vehicles are parked, instead see Watco Basics Epoxy Resin Floor Paint, or Watco Epoxy Gloss Coat Best Ever Formula.
In areas of chemical spillage, please refer to Watco Chemi Coat.
Unsuitable for outside application, instead use Watco Fastcoat.
Do not use in very slippery, wet, oily areas, instead see Watco Safety Grip.
