Centrecoat Griptop HB is a two-pack solvent free polyurethane based high build coating that provides floor surfaces with a seamless, hygienic and cosmetically attractive finish.
Centrecoat Griptop HB is formulated for industrial flooring providing very good durability in pedestrian and vehicular traffic environments. This PU floor coating benefits from very good resistance towards many of the chemicals commonly found in an industrial environment, particularly solvents.
This hygienic two pack coating is ideal for hospitals, vets, surgeries, care homes, and the food and beverage industry. Suitable aggregates can be incorporated to provide a non slip profiled finish.
Centrecoat Griptop HB should be applied by brush or roller and is tintable to most RAL and BS shades.
The surface must be clean, dry (less than 75% RH measured by hygrometer) and free of dust laitance, oils, paints or other forms of contamination. Grit blasting can be used to remove laitance and surface contamination. For treatment of surfaces containing expansion joints, consult our Technical Department.
Centrecoat Griptop HB has excellent adhesion to concrete and therefore priming is not normally necessary. If the substrate is particularly porous, a priming coat of Centrecoat Strongcoat Primer is recommended. If the substrate has humidity reading of greater than 75% it is recommended that Centrecoat Strongcoat DPM be used prior to priming with Centrecoat Strongcoat Primer (please consult the appropriate data sheets).
Taking care to ensure that the bottom and sides are thoroughly scraped, transfer the entire contents of the Griptop HB part B container into the Part A container and, using a paddle mixer attached to a slow running electric drill, mix for approximately two minutes. Important: Never mix Griptop HB by hand as this could lead to areas of uncured material. Important: Never leave the mixed Griptop HB kit to stand for any length of time prior to application as this will considerably shorten its pot life.
Once mixing is complete, transfer the Griptop HB to a roller tray, and using a medium-pile simulated sheepskin roller, apply it evenly over the surface. Note: Griptop HB is not colour stable and may discolour on ageing and exposure to UV light, especially with light colours. This will not adversely affect the performance of the product.
Whilst the Griptop HB is still wet, completely blind it with an appropriate grade of Aggregate (consult our Technical Department for details of Aggregate grades). Allow the Griptop HB to cure for the specified time then vacuum off the excess aggregate. The bound aggregate is then sealed with a further coat of Griptop HB. Important: The coverage rate of Griptop HB will be considerably reduced when using it to seal Aggregates.

The manufacturers data sheets are available for download from this website. It is your responsibility to read and understand all aspects of the data sheets before you place an order and prior to application. Please pay special attention to the preparation, mixing and application temperatures of the product, cleaning of substrate and environmental factors such as temperature, rain etc. Quoted coverage rates are based on the manufacturers theoretical rates and may vary depending upon substrates absorption, texture and application. We always recommend a test is carried out to ensure suitability.
