Heavy duty protection for heavily trafficked floors

High build epoxy resin coating, which gives excellent wear and abrasion resistance with just one coat

For guaranteed protection - prepare, mix and apply

For best results, thoroughly clean and prepare the floor prior to painting to ensure surface laitance, dust, dirt and grease are removed. We recommend Epoxicote High Build Primer for bare concrete surfaces as it will prevent air bubbles from forming and will promote good adhesion on hard, smooth or powerfloated concrete floors.

Remove the two inner tins from the tall outer tin, stir thoroughly and pour into the tall outer tin. Mix all components thoroughly. Once all the components have been mixed, a chemical reaction takes place. The product should therefore be decanted into a shallow tray and used straight away.

Apply one coat with a medium pile roller, working well into the surface of the concrete. Best results are obtained in warm, dry conditions with good ventilation.

Step 1

Epoxicote High Build Primer

With one simple coat, the Primer quickly smoothes bare concrete floors, which would otherwise reject a paint coating. This eliminates the need for grinding or costly shot blasting. As the Primer completely seals porous concrete, no air bubbles will appear in the thick, glossy and strong coating from the High Build.

Professional results, every single time

Formulating paints and coatings that can withstand even the toughest of environments is what our chemists do best. A big advantage of this formulation is it does not need water to make it cure. Instead a chemical reaction takes place after the base and activator are mixed together, which brings about rapid drying. This makes the product suitable for areas where there is poor ventilation, cold temperatures or high humidity.

Application

Application

Surface preparation

Bare Concrete – remove surface laitance, dust and any light dirt or grease deposits using Watco Etch & Clean. Watco Etch & Clean also etches smooth, bare concrete surfaces to provide a key. Flush with clean water and allow surface to dry. For the removal of heavier deposits of oil and grease we recommend Watco Concroff, again, flush with clean water and allow the surface to dry.

New Concrete – as a guide, new concrete should be left for eight weeks to dry (if the application has to go ahead before this, use Watco New Concrete Primer). The surface should then be prepared using Watco Etch & Clean and thoroughly rinsed away and left to dry prior to applying this coating.

Priming – Watco Epoxicote High Build Primer is recommended for bare concrete surfaces. It prevents air bubbles forming in Epoxicote High Build when painting open textured or porous concrete. Using this primer also promotes good adhesion when painting hard, smooth or power floated concrete.  

Painted surfaces – abrade to remove any weak or loose paint. Check remaining paint is well bonded. Very smooth, glossy paint should be lightly abraded to provide a key. Watco Bio D can be used to remove grease and oil from painted surfaces. Watco Concroff is a very powerful degreaser for contaminated bare concrete, do not use on a previously painted surface since it can soften paint.

Metal – remove any rust and flaking material by disc grinding or wire brushing. Apply the coating immediately after Preparation to the clean metal surface. Grease or oil can be removed using Watco Bio D. Allow the metal to dry before coating.

Galvanised Metal – Watco Galvaprime must be used to prepare galvanised metal.

Non-ferrous Metals - for advice, please contact our Technical Department.

Mixing

Remove the two inner tins from the tall outer tin. Stir the contents of each tin thoroughly and pour all of the contents into the outer tin, (scrape around the inside of the tins to remove any residue). Mix the components together thoroughly using a spatula or similar wide bladed tool, (a piece of wooden batten is ideal) and do not thin. Continue mixing until an even colour and consistency are obtained. Do not mix more than one pack at a time. If a paint stirrer fitted to an electric drill is used, also use the spatula to blend in any unmixed material from the sides and bottom of the tin. In the anti slip versions the slip resistant particles are already pre-blended (in the Curing Agent).

Application

Important - once the contents of the pack have been mixed, a chemical reaction takes place which creates heat. The product should therefore be decanted into a shallow tray to avoid reducing the pot life and used straight away. Best results are obtained in warm (minimum of 15°C), dry conditions with good ventilation. Apply one coat with a medium pile roller, (not foam), working well into the surface of the concrete. On vertical surfaces 2 thin coats are recommended. Do not exceed the maximum coverage of 18m² per 4L pack. Do not wash or allow water to lie on the surface for at least 7 days.

  • Gloss Value: 98 - Measured on an Optical Glossmeter, +85% is High Gloss
  • Chemical resistance: Excellent chemical resistance against the most common chemicals.
  • Excellent slip resistance in wet conditions when tested to BS7976-2: Epoxicote High Build Anti Slip’s PTV is 66 and Epoxicote High Build Advanced Anti Slip is 57. A number above 36 indicates a low slip value
