Surface preparation

All surfaces must be -10°C or above and free from ice or water. Concrete to be treated must be at least four weeks old, completely dry and free of contaminants. Grease or oil should be removed with Watco Bio-D (or a similar emulsifying degreasant) and the area thoroughly washed off and allowed to dry.

Very smooth concrete or concrete with surface laitance (a weak dusty layer) should be abraded or etched with Watco Etch & Clean to ensure adequate Adhesion. The concrete should be thoroughly washed down and allowed to dry after treatment with Watco Etch & Clean.

Watco Powerfloat Primer is recommended on powerfloated surfaces but it must be fully cured before overcoating. Previously painted surfaces should be thoroughly abraded by sanding to improve adhesion and to remove any weak or loose material. A trial area is advisable to test compatibility with previous coatings.

Below 5°C it may be necessary to avoid processes which involve wetting the floor due to the difficulty in drying. A good sweep or mechanical brushing may be sufficient. 


Mix between 10°C and 25°C. Remove the two inner tins from the tall outer tin. Stir 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 a similar wide bladed tool (a piece of wooden batten is ideal). 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, use the spatula to blend in any unmixed material from the sides and bottom of the tin. Do not dilute.


If appearance is critical we recommend the application of a small trial area first.

Apply between -10°C and +30°C. The viscosity will be somewhat thicker at lower temperatures, reducing the coverage rates. The product should be worked out with a short pile roller to maximise the coverage and get the best performance from the product.

Test results

Extensive testing is what makes us the most highly qualified paint and repair manufacturer on the market. Our tests cover just about everything you might want to know about a floor coating – how well it bonds to the floor, how durable it is, how well it stands up to scratching and much more.

Our top tests for Safety Coat Food Safe: 

  • Tested and certified safe for food production areas via a sensory evaluation test, standard TES-S-002. This test is crucial for food preparation environments where hygiene is important on all surfaces.
  • Slips trips and falls are the most common cause of workplace accidents, areas of food preparation are particularly high-risk environments, as they’re often crowded busy environments with the potential for surface contamination in the form of oils, powders, liquids and even ice.
  • Safety Coat Food Safe has excellent slip resistance in wet conditions when tested to BS7976-2. For a full breakdown of PTV values, please refer to our Pendulum Test Value Data sheet.
