Description

Watco Safety Grip - heavy duty, coarse textured, anti slip, three-pack epoxy resin coatings designed to provide a safe surface both inside and out. Also available in Cold Cure & Rapid versions:

  • Watco Safety Grip Rapid offers all the benefits of Safety Grip but it cures within 8 hours to withstand light traffic saving on downtime.
  • Watco Safety Grip Cold Cure can be applied as low as 0°C, providing exceptional slip resistance in unheated areas or outside in the winter months.

Using one high build coat of Safety Grip minimises the risk of accidents throughout the workplace, particularly for wet or oily areas.

All grades now carry CE Mark EN 1504-2 and have test results for slip resistance, abrasion, scratch and impact resistance, as well as for adhesion and hardness.

They are also chemical resistant and have an A+ VOC emissions rating with a low level of VOC.

Surface Preparation


Bare Concrete – remove surface laitance, dust and any light dirt or grease deposits using Watco Etch & Clean. Watco Etch & Clean also etches smooth, bare concrete surfaces to provide a key. Flush with clean water and allow the surface to dry. For the removal of heavier deposits of oil and grease we recommend Watco Concroff, again, flush with clean water and allow the surface to dry.

New Concrete – as a guide, new concrete should be left for 8 weeks to dry. The surface should then be prepared using Watco Etch & Clean, thoroughly rinsed and left to dry.

Priming – is not usually required, but for very porous high suction surfaces, such as sand and cement screed, use Watco 4 Hour Epoxy Primer. Concrete should be sufficiently porous to allow the paint to penetrate, so very smooth or power floated concrete is unsuitable unless first primed with Watco Powerfloat Primer.

Painted Surfaces – abrade to remove any weak or loose paint. Check remaining paint is well bonded. Very smooth, glossy paint should be lightly abraded to provide a key. Watco Bio D can be used to remove grease and oil from painted surfaces. Watco Concroff is a very powerful degreaser for contaminated bare concrete, (do not use on a previously painted surface since it can soften paint). A trial area is advisable to test compatibility with previous coatings.

Asphalt – new asphalt must be sound and at least 3 months old. If any residual oils remain, the surface should be washed using Watco Concroff. Painted asphalt should be cleaned with Watco Bio-D (Concroff can soften paint), and a trial area is advisable to test compatibility with previous coatings.

Metal – remove any rust and flaking material by disc grinding or wire brushing. Apply the coating immediately after preparation to the clean metal surface. Grease or oil can be removed using Watco Bio D. Allow the metal to dry before coating.

Galvanised Metal – Watco Galvaprime must be used to prepare galvanised metal.

Non-ferrous Metals – for advice, please contact our Technical Department on 0113 2455450 (option 2) or send a message to [email protected].



Mixing and Application


  1. Individually stir the resin and curing agent using a Watco Paint Mixer, (or a wooden batten at least 25mm wide is ideal).
  2. Pour the mixed components into the larger outer tin and stir thoroughly until uniform in colour.
  3. Pour the mixed resin and curing agent into a shallow roller tray.
  4. Apply the mixed resin and curing agent by medium pile roller (not foam) to a measured area of 5m2. A paint brush may be used for cutting in around the edges.
  5. Using the perforated anti slip aggregate tin, immediately sprinkle the aggregate, uniformly, onto the wet coat to obtain the desired surface finish (total or light coverage).
  6. Using the same roller that was used to apply the mixed resin and curing agent, roll over the sprinkled aggregate to bed in. Do not re-charge the roller with mixed resin and curing agent unless very heavy quantities of grit have been applied, since this will result in a loss of slip resistance.
  7. Avoid washing the surface for 7 days after application

In exceptional temperature conditions advice should be obtained from our technical team on 0113 2455450 (option 2) or send a message to [email protected].

Case Studies


Used in a food processing plant at the world’s second largest producer of bottled water, who were looking for industrial floor paints to renovate and maintain indoor walkways and create seamless traffic flows in its factories. The total coverage area was 2500m².



Standard Compliance


  • EN 1504-2
  • BREEAM COMPLIANT
  • VOC LEVEL 30g/litre (very low)
  • ISO 16000

Limitations


Most self levelling compounds cannot be painted - contact our technical team for details on 0113 2455450 (option 2) or send a message to [email protected].

Unsuitable for new asphalt and galvanised surfaces.

Painting chequer plate can be a problem since any coating will prematurely wear off the ‘high spots’ when subjected to regular traffic.
