Bradite Epoxy Coating Finish is best used on interior concrete, wood or steel floors requiring a tough, quick drying, hard wearing flexible floor coating with good chemical and excellent water resistance. It can also be used with Bradite LS30 to help provide additional under foot traction. This product is ideally suited for the refurbishment of fibreglass swimming pools, having excellent water immersion resistance, good chemical resistance and produces a surface that is easy to clean.
Compatibility with existing coatings should be confirmed by preparing and painting a test patch. (Note, not suitable for applying over asphalt, bitumen, epoxy tar, alkyd, chlorinated rubber or vinyl based paints.)
Application and use should always conform to the codes of practice described in BS 6150 and BS 5493.
Substrates should be dust free and completely dry before coating. When painting concrete it is vital to ensure that the substrate is completely dry and free of laitance. Power floated, shiny or unpainted non porous concrete floors should be thoroughly vacuum blast cleaned to a roughness profile of 30-50 microns, or acid etched using Bradite TA37, or primed using Bradite Floor Primer ES40. Please consult the product data sheet for more details.
High pressure water cleaning should be utilised to remove all loose and flaking paint and contamination back to a sound substrate. Bradite TD39 industrial strength detergent should be used if necessary to remove all grease and oil. Intact areas of existing coatings should be roughened by abrasive manual or disc rubbing and feathered back to a sound coating edge. Cracks and pits should be filled using a suitable screed or mortar before painting. Substrate should be dust free and completely dry before coating. Cracks and pits should be filled using a suitable screed or mortar before painting. Substrate should be dust free and completely dry before coating.
