Painting Bare Concrete Floors with a Single Pack Floor Coating

Two coats of paint are always recommended 1st coat primes and seals the floor. 2nd coat provides good colour build, protection and longevity of the coating.

When painting any concrete floor it is important that the moisture content of the concrete is no greater than 5%.

Green concrete is best left for at least 2-3 months before coating.

With any floor coating preparation is an essential key to extend the protection and lifespan of the coating.

To prepare a bare (rough) concrete floor prior to painting we always recommend a light abrasion first; this can be done either by a scarifying machine or track blasting (most effective method). This allows the paint to create a good lock and key effect with the concrete which then leads to much better adhesion.

If the floor has been power floated or is generally very shiny, the floor paint will not adhere to this surface. It is recommended to track blast the concrete to remove most of the top layer prior to painting.

After the floor has been abraded, we then recommend de-greasing the area, removing dust and any loose parts

If floors are heavily penetrated with any sort of contamination it is important to remove it all before coating.

Single Pack Floor Paint can be easily applied by brush & roller.

Manufacturer’s guidelines are that any type of paint will need 7 days for the coating to reach its full properties.
