The functions of the industrial floor paint are: - to strengthen and improve the factory floor surface - to eliminate dust, build up on surface (pre seal primer coating is always advised on dusty unpainted areas before a topcoat is applied) - to increase the floors abrasion and wear resistance - to provide the increased additional chemical resistance - to improve the appearance and ambience of the working environment -to speed up the cleaning/mopping of the area cutting down on time of this task and also to help combat dust issues on stock and surface contamination - to delineate specific areas, such as: safe walking areas, parking bays or access routes and other directions etc. My floor is power-floated, or screed will this coating be ok. This coating will be fine BUT the surface will need acid etching before a coating is applied.
My concrete slab has been down 4 weeks can I now paint it. We advise a minimum cure time of 12 weeks before any coating is applied. Pre seal is a primer coat to give better adhesion for the final floor paint finish giving a better life of coating. Is this floor paint waterproof.This coating does not offer any waterproof properties. I want my floor to be high gloss will this coating get this finish. This floor paint is not a high gloss standard finish is a semi-gloss, any high gloss coating will have a high slip hazard. Will this coating fill gaps and cracks in the floor.
This floor paint will not fill gaps it may joint fine cracks, but we do recommend using a floor preparation filler to achieve a perfect finish. Can pre seal be applied on top of the floor paint to give a gloss finish. No pre seal is not a final topcoat and is it also not a clear coating. We use bleach and industrial anti-bacterial floor soap will this paint stand up to this. Yes, this floor paint will speed up the cleaning process as most materials cannot grip to the finished dry topcoat.My floor is tiled will this coating stick. If you have high gloss tiles this paint will not stick, if you have a matt finish this coating will be fine if the surface is clean and dry. This paint will not stick to lino or bitumen surfaces.
We are painting on Saturday will this paint be dry for Monday. At 15'c this paint will be touch dry in 10 hours and threw dry after 24 hours, we recommend to apply in sections and keep off the fresh coated area for minimum 3 days, if temperature is lower than 15'c this will affect the cure times and thickness of application will slow cure time down, Two thin coats are better than one thick coat. Can you help we have never painted a floor before what do we do We are always happy to help and advice when needed, first we need to find out if the floor is a surface this paint will get along with luckily this paint gets on with the majority of surfaces brick, stone, metal, concrete, wood this coating will not stick to power-float (shinny smooth finishes) without an acid etch preparation being done, once that has been identified we recommend to prep the floor with an acid etch or deep clean depending how contaminated the surface is, Pre seal is then applied when the cleaning stage has dried, leave 12 hours or until the pre seal is tack free you are then ready to apply your first neat coat of floor paint.
How do I work with the anti-slip additive on your drop-down menu? This is a really simple process we can advise using this one of two ways first way mix the paint and apply this bag of dry additive directly to the tub on your first coating of the floor paint (after the cleaning/pre seal stages have been followed if required)leave this to then dry and apply a final lock in coat or on the first floor paint coating sprinkle this across the surface leave to dry brush away the excess and apply a final lock in coat. Please note the anti-slip additive is a single dry additive and will require a floor paint product to work. Testing if the area is ready to coat with this type of professional coating testing if a concrete surface is ready to coat (identifying a power floated or screed or other issue surface) this is a very simple process of putting a small amount of water on the surface you are looking to apply this range of floor coatings to ensure the area is clean and free from any contamination. If the water absorbs after a few minutes this area is ready for the cleaning & coating stages, we can advise if needed with this.
If the water sits on the surface and will not absorb and puddles this is a sign the area may require further preparation with acid etch or abrading. The acid etch process is a really easy application we can take you through this process step by step if required.Dusty Unstable/Virgin Surfaces For areas that are dusty and unstable, you will need a product that has been designed for maximum penetration while providing a good film build by re-bonding the substrate together, returning the floor to a solid sound surface the product we advise is Marl Coatings Pre Seal this can be found on the floor paint drop down menu. Oily / Contaminated Surfaces Where the floors have been subjected to oil and grease, We recommend steam cleaning your floors and use Marl Coatings Heavy Duty Surface Deep Clean before application of any floor coating, after allowing the surface to dry and Marl Coatings Pre Seal has been applied a top coat can then be applied please do test patches on each stage of this process. Rising Damp A floor coating does not do well if you have any moisture issues Hydrostatic pressure from the moisture can actually cause the coating to peel up, sometimes taking pieces of the concrete with it. Should floors be devoid of an effective Damp Proof Membrane (DPM), virtually any paint will lift and peel off the surface.
Indeed, even self-levelling screeds can be pushed up by water pressure. This is another nightmare regularly experienced by many companies. For this reason, a damp-proof coating is recommended as a solution before applying a floor paint. Treating your floor before coating them It is important to treat your surfaces before coating them to prevent issues post-paint.Repair your floor: Before painting your garage floor, it is important to repair any cracks, holes or expansions of joints in your concrete to prevent an un-slightly finish to your flooring once its painted. Marl Coatings Pre-Seal is designed to seal the surface from the outgassing of the concrete, where air will rise and be expelled from the concrete which is often caused by a rise in temperature or a change in humidity. Another major cause to poor flooring is rising damp. Due to a poor or non-existent DPM (Damp Proof Membrane), the damp is caused by a rising water table and/or the immediate surrounding areas being waterlogged. Air entrapment is a common issue that can occur if the surface isn't primed before being coated. This is where the air pushes bubbles into the resin coat which later bursts, leaving? This can also be caused when the resin has been mixed too quickly it is important to use the correct tools to mix to avoid issues. Primer tackles this issue by soaking further into the surface to fully seal the entire surface area of concrete floors. Air is then less likely to push up, and on the rare occasion that it does, the bubble will pop and the resin now being thinner, will generally revert back and refill the pin hole caused by the bubble.
