Bradite Floor Paint is best used on interior concrete, wood or steel floors requiring an economical, hard wearing, flexible floor coating with good chemical and excellent water resistance. It can also be used with Bradite Low Slip Additives LS30 to provide additional under foot traction.
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.
For application on concrete, wood or other absorbent substrates, the first coat should be thinned 15-20% with Bradite Thinner TW35 to allow penetration into the substrate.
1st coat Bradite Floor Paint DP5 (thinned)
2nd coat Bradite Floor Paint DP5
3rd coat Bradite Floor Paint DP5
For maintenance painting the 1st coat will be a touch up to bare areas only. While the floor will take light foot traffic after overnight drying, full cure may take 4 days at 20⁰C and should not be subject to heavy traffic for at least 48 hours. Please note that drying/curing times will vary depending on film thickness, temperature and relative humidity. Bradite Floor Paint DP5 is suitable for use in domestic and light commercial garages. In the first seven days after application, vehicles should be left outside to allow tyres to cool down (especially after long journeys) to help prevent hot tyre pick up. Spills of petrol and diesel should be cleaned up as soon as possible to reduce the danger of slip and to prevent discolouration of the floor paint. Brake fluid is highly aggressive and will attack most floor paints on contact – use drip/capture pans when working on brake systems to prevent permanent damage to the floor paint finish.
