Surface Preparation

All surfaces should be clean, dry, sound and free from contaminants. Concrete - power floated, granolithic and smooth surfaces should be roughened first to provide a good "key" for the paint. This can be done mechanically by abrading or blasting, or chemically using Coo-Var Acid Etch. These processes will have the advantage in addition to preparing the surface of also removing dirt and laitance. New concrete must be allowed to cure thoroughly which can take up to 3 months. Apply a 10% thinned coat of 301 Industrial Floor Paint to prime and seal the surface prior to applying 501 Anti Slip Floor Paint.

Other surfaces have to be prepared and primed with the suitable primer for that substrate. Existing painted surfaces - Surfaces should be cleaned, degreased and sanded to ensure an adequate "key" is produced. Remove all loose and flaking material and treat bare areas as new substrate and prepare accordingly.

Stir well before use (do not shake). Application conditions are as dictated by normal good painting practice. In confined spaces, provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.

Use a suitable wood primer on wood, zinc phosphate metal primer on ferrous metals, 10% thinned 301 Industrial Floor Paint on concrete.

Not suitable for areas with bare feet.

questions Adrian  on 14/08/2019

How Mitch paint will I need to do a floor 40 m2


5 litres would be sufficient to apply 1 coat to 40m² - so 2 x 5 litres to apply the required 2 coats plus any primer if required.

questions Lyn Manning on 31/07/2019

Can I use this on galvanised steel fire escape stairs please


Yes, first prime bare galvanised steel after preparation as per the product data sheet with Coo-Var Water Based All Metals Primer.

questions Lee Beecham on 04/04/2019

I am looking to use your light Grey 501 anti slip floor paint onto brand new self levelling latex, will this make it waterproof ? and does it need a primer or etch ? or would a thinned pre coat be fine ?


Providing the self leveller you have used can be painted with solvent based coatings then you would apply a primer coat of 301 Industrial Floor Paint diluted 10% with white spirit followed by 2 coats of 501 Anti Slip Floor Paint. This will provide a durable anti slip finish but is not deemed waterproof

questions Andrew Crichton on 05/03/2019

Aluminum painting Hi, I am interested in your anti slip paint, I am needing to coat some aluminium checker plate. If i etch prime then paint will that be suitable?? Regards Andy


To apply an anti-slip coating to aluminium we would usually suggest Smartkote Protectakote 2K Metal Primer followed by Smartkote Protectakote UVR.

questions Martin on 20/01/2019

We are a scout district in north Norfolk and need to paint new woodwork on our mobile climbing tower ,with some sort of textured paint that will allow Shoes to grip to some extent what is best product to use please


501 Anti-Slip Floor Paint should be ideal for this application, on new wood we recommend Coo-Var Penetrating Wood Primer be applied first.

questions Carol norris on 13/08/2018

Hi I have a sloping drive which becomes very slippery when wet. It appears to be a painted concrete surface. Would your 501 anti slip paint be suitable for this.


Potentially, but as we don't know what the drive is currently painted in you will have to carry out a test area prior to full application to ensure adhesion/compatibility.

After cleaning and preparation as per the product data sheets, apply 1 coat of 301 Industrial Floor Paint thinned 10% with white spirit. Allow to dry overnight, then apply 2 coats of 501 Anti Slip Floor Paint allowing at least 16 hours between coats.

Hello, Just finished my Narrowboat roof in the Blue 501 Anti Slip Floor Paint. Really happy with it, but would like to detail some areas on the boat in the same colour without the aggregate. Could you supply this?


Yes, the nearest colour to our 501 Anti Slip Floor Paint in Blue is BS 18D43. This colour can be produced in something like Teamac Marine Gloss or Rust-Oleum CombiColor.

Then apply Smartkote Protectakote UVR as per instructions, you may also be interested in Smartkote Protectakote UVR Accelerator and Smartkote Protectakote Safety Grip to be used in conjunction with your application.

Question: I want to put a non slip path on my block paved driveway using 501 anti slip floor paint. I have jetwashed the area I want to paint. Can I paint direct to this cleaned surface OR is there other preparatory work I need to do first?

After cleaning a priming coat of 301 Industrial Floor Paint thinned 10% with White Spirit should be used before application of 501 Anti Slip Floor Paint.

questions David Pontefract on 08/03/2017
Question: Can you tell me what primer do I need to order and is used on clean concrete when painting with 501 anti slip paint. Regards D Pontefract

On suitably prepared bare concrete a priming coat of 301 Industrial Floor Paint thinned 10% with White Spirits should be used before application of 501 Anti Slip Floor Paint.

questions Dave Robson  on 17/02/2017
Question: Is there a primer needed on bare timber boards before applying the 501 anti slip floor paint

Yes - 407 Multi Surface Primer.

questions Scott  on 08/02/2017
Question: Is Anti slip paint 501 suitable for an external meta staircase and can it be applied over a previous coat of anti slip paint?

It is suitable for use on external metal staircases. Any bare metal areas should be prepared and primed with a suitable primer. Existing paint should be well adhered, clean and abraded to provide a key if necessary before application of 501 Anti Slip Floor Paint directly to the surface.

questions Steve on 19/10/2016
Question: Hi, I am looking for a paint adhere to an aluminium truck bed for driving vehicles onto . Is your 501 antislip paint suitable? Thank you Steve

We would recommend priming the aluminium with 707 MMA Metal Primer and finishing with 703 MMA Flexible Anti-Slip Coating.

questions phu on 20/09/2016
Question: hi can you let me know is it ok to mop over this paint with out it coming off. thanks phu

Mopping this product certainly won't remove it as it is a durable coating that can also be used externally but it does have a very rough texture to the finished surface which will make it nearly impossible to mop. If you require an anti-slip coating you can clean for internal areas, we would recommend 503 Easy Clean Anti Slip Coating.
