questions Michelle on 03/07/2018

Hi, I have a concrete floor with old paint. I need to paint a commercial kitchen floor (anti slip). do i need to remove the old paint or just paint on top? Thanks


Ideally you would always remove any existing coatings and apply something like 503 Easy Clean Anti Slip Coating or 502 HD Anti Slip Coating to a suitably prepared concrete floor. However there are instances where existing coatings can be over painted as long as they are well adhered, compatible and thoroughly cleaned and abraded to provide a key for the next product to be applied to. Always start with a small trial area when overcoating to check for compatibility, adhesion, etc.

questions Heather  on 07/06/2018

Can this be used outside for back door steps? Thanks


Provided the steps are wood or concrete, (i.e. not tiled or anything else) then yes it will be suitable. Usual preparation should be carried our prior to painting, i.e. clean, dry, loose flaking paint removed, mould treated etc.

questions Thomas Bennett on 07/05/2018

I drive a Renault Kangoo adapted to accept a power chair with an access ramp at the back of the vehicle. My chair is equipped with solid tyres and sometimes they slip when contacting the metal plate at the bottom of the ramp. Would your Blackfriars paint overcome this problem?


To create an anti-slip surface on metal we would instead recommend Smartkote Protectakote UVR. The metal surface should first be prepared and primed with the appropriate primer (as per manufacturers instructions), see Smarkote Protectakote UVR Product Data Sheet for more details.

Good morning, I have an area of decking approx. 6m x4m, and I am looking at the best anti slip solution for this. I have looked at the screw down strips you sell, and they do seem ideal. However, I am on a restricted budget, and wonder what type/cost of paint you could offer. The area does get quite damp and slippy due to its location in the garden, and previous decking oil/paints have not lasted. Thanks in advance Donald.


We recommend Smartkote Safekote for timber decking.

questions Sarah on 29/03/2018

Can this paint be used over interior tiles that are now exterior? (they were interior as in a conservatory but now exposed as conservatory knocked down and pergola erected instead)


We wouldn't advise the use of Blackfriar Professional Anti-Slip Floor Paint on tiles but Smartkote Safekote can be applied to glazed tiles after the application of Smartkote Protectakote Clear Primer Treatment, see product information and data sheets for full details.

questions Jon on 21/03/2018

Would this be suitable for application over previously painted steel stair treads?


Yes, on previously painted surfaces, after preparation apply 1-2 coats as required.

questions Tracy Russ on 24/02/2018

Would this be suitable for concrete stairs case from a first floor flat?


New concrete must be left for at least 6 months before applying Blackfriar Professional Anti-Slip Floor Paint. On bare or new surfaces first apply Blackfriar Professional Solvent Based Floor Sealer followed by 1-2 coats of Blackfriar Professional Anti-Slip Floor Paint. On previously painted surfaces apply 1-2 coats as required. Blackfriar Professional Anti-Slip Floor Paint is not suitable for use over granolithic concrete. Do not apply it on concrete surfaces treated with alkali containing liquids, areas subjected to rising damp or areas treated with PVA bonding solutions. If concrete floors are very smooth then pre-treat with Blackfriar Professional Acid Etch followed by Blackfriar Professional Solvent Based Floor Sealer prior to applying 1- 2 coats of Blackfriar Professional Anti-Slip Floor Paint. Surfaces are slippery when wet. To ensure slip resistance the floor must be kept dry when in use.

questions Sarah on 27/01/2018

Is this ideal for motorbikes to go over. I'm looking to put this on the entrance to my garage which is sloped and slippy. It is paving slabs which gets slippy when wet and therefore the bike tyres slip.


Blackfriar Professional Anti-Slip Floor Paint should be OK for this type of situation.

For best performance the surface preparation will need to be thorough, no grease or dirt present. Substrate must also be completely dry when paint is applied. (It may be better to wait for better weather before tackling the job).

Thin the first coat to act as a sealer, add approx. 10% white spirit for the sealer coat. Then apply 2 full coats. The paint coating will take up to a week to fully harden, you will need to take care during this time not to damage the coating. When it starts to show signs of wear another coat can be applied.

Question: Is Blackfriars anti slip paint suitable for external concrete

Yes it is. Please see the TDS (Technical Data Sheet) available to download from the 'DATASHEETS' tab on the product page for full information on preparation and application.

questions Brenda Snoswell on 08/03/2017

Will the anti slip paint be OK to paint over ceramic tiles on our outside step. Thanks


Blackfriar Professional Anti-Slip Floor Paint will not be suitable for this application. A suitable system would be to prime the tiles with 3333 Super Adhesive Primer Handy Pack followed by Rust-O-Thane 9200 Handy Pack with Rust-Oleum Non-Skid Additive NS 200 incorporated to produce an anti-slip finish.

questions Robert Rutledge on 22/07/2016
Question: Is this product suitable for a small engineering workshop where the equipment uses neat oil as coolant and therefore many splashes, what preparation is required to the floor that has previously been painted with Watco paint which doesn't stand up?

Blackfriar Professional Anti-Slip Floor Paint may not last too long if any oil contamination is allowed to sit on the surface for any length of time. Oil spillages must be wiped up promptly to avoid the paint softening. A stronger paint would be the Blackfriar Professional High Traffic Floor Paint and to broadcast 504 Standard Anti Slip Aggregate into the first coat to give the anti slip properties. Then apply a second coat to seal in the aggregate.

To prepare the floor remove all failing coatings back to a clean sound surface. Remove any oil contamination using the Blackfriar Professional Degreaser & Cleaner. If there is still a sound paint coating present either product, (Blackfriar Professional Anti-Slip Floor Paint or Blackfriar Professional High Traffic Floor Paint), should be OK to go straight over the previous coating. Note In some instances the High Traffic Floor Paint can react with recently applied single pack floor paints. If the old paint coating is not in great condition then a complete diamond disc grind to remove all paint would be best preparation. You would then need to prime the bare surface with the relevant primer depending on which top coat you are using (Blackfriar Professional Floor Sealer for Blackfriar Professional Anti-Slip Floor Paint and Blackfriar Professional Epoxy Floor Primer for Blackfriar Professional High Traffic Floor Paint. The paint system must be allowed to cure for 5 days minimum from the application of the last coat before subjecting the coating to any oil contamination.
