Product Description

Coo-Var Floor Paint is a quick drying, solvent based, single pack floor coating for industrial use, designed to be easy to use, versatile and economical. Coo-Var Floor Paint is ideal to protect and decorate floors, inside or outside in commercial environments. It can also be used on walls, ledges and stairways and is compatible with most previous coatings that may already be on the floor.

Coo-Var Floor Paint is a general purpose floor paint for foot and light truck traffic offering protection against dirt, grime, oil, dust and and some solvents. It is ideal for use on wood, metal, concrete and GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic). If your floor is prone to water, use Coo-Var Suregrip Anti-Slip Floor Paint on top of Coo-Var Floor Paint to increase slip resistance. Coo-Var Floor Paint is available in a range of 12 standard colours in a Semi-Gloss finish - Tile Red, Bright Red, Flint Grey, Forest Green, Black, Steel Blue, Tan, Stone, Safety Yellow, Dark Grey, Light Grey and White. Not recommended for use on asphalt, bituminous surfaces or on thermoplastic floor tiles.

Recommended Uses

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.

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.

Application:

As dictated by normal good painting practice. In confined spaces provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.

Prime with Coo-Var Penetrating Wood Primer on wood, Coo-Var Zinc Phosphate Primer on ferrous metals, 10% thinned Coo-Var Floor Paint or Coo-Var Alkali Resisting Primer Sealer on concrete.

Finish with 1 or 2 coats of Coo-Var Floor Paint as required.

Questions



questions chris keeble on 20/08/2018
Question: 

would this product be adversely affected if a vehicle with hot/wet tyres is parked on it

Answer: 

Providing that the concrete being painted is structurally sound, and the concrete has been prepared and product applied following the proper procedure (see product data sheet) hot tyre syndrome should not be an issue. However, we do always recommend the use of Coo-Var Profloor 2 Pack Epoxy Floor Paint in place of Coo-Var Floor Paint where vehicle traffic is expected as this would offer a far more robust and durable solution.

questions Chris williams  on 01/08/2018
Question: 

Hi I just wanted to confirm this paint is ok for my concrete Drive ? Many thanks

Answer: 

Coo-Var Floor Paint can be used on exterior concrete however, Coo-Var do offer a specific product for driveways which would be preferred called Coo-Var Tennis Court & Drive Paint.

Question: 

Regarding floor paint is it slippery when wet please as I want to use it on my outdoor concrete paths?

questions D Campbell on 28/06/2018
Question: 

Can this product be used on external patio ?

Answer: 

Coo-Var Floor Paint can be used internally and externally and assuming the patio is concrete, paving slabs or similar porous masonry substrate then this would be OK. Follow preparation guidelines on the product data sheet and apply the first coat of Coo-Var Floor Paint thinned 10% with Teamac/Coo-Var Thinner 14, then apply a second coat when dry, undiluted.

questions Owen on 27/09/2017
Question: What sealant/primer do you recommend to use prior to the application of this paint on fully cured but previously untreated concrete?
Answer: 

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.


To prime prepared, bare concrete use Coo-Var Floor Paint thinned 10% or Coo-Var Alkali Resisting Primer.

questions alec newman on 03/07/2017
Question: Would this paint be alright on an exterior concrete path which has been previously painted.

Suitable for indoor and outdoor use, Coo-Var Floor Paint is compatible over most previous coatings and gives an off gloss finish.

questions mike on 18/11/2016
Question: If i was to remove the paint with a sander would the dust be toxic!
Answer: 

Any dust created wouldn't be toxic but we would always recommended wearing suitable PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) - i.e. face mask, gloves, goggles, etc. whilst carrying out preparation works.
