Features & Benefits


  • High-performance ambient crosslinking water based acrylic floor paint
  • Economical, hard wearing, and flexible
  • Good chemical and excellent water resistance
  • For interior/exterior bare or previously painted suitably prepared concrete, wood, steel, tarmac or asphalt floors
  • Suitable for use in domestic and light commercial garages
  • Can be used with Bradite Low Slip Additive LS30 to provide additional under foot traction
  • Manufactured under the auspices of an ISO 9001:2008 quality & ISO 14001:2004 environmental management systems.



Preparation


  • For internal/external wood, steel, concrete and other absorbent mineral substrates which are dry, free of contamination, dust, efflorescence laitance and have been properly prepared and primed. Suitably prepared and well adhered existing coatings including, polyurethane, epoxy and chlorinated rubber. External floor surfaces should be above local water table and/or have intact DPM barrier present
  • Substrates should be dust free and completely dry before coating
  • When painting concrete it is vital to ensure that the substrate is completely dry and free of laitance. If the concrete is loose, chipping or has concrete dust present, the coating will not perform properly unless all loose material and dust is removed and damaged areas are repaired
  • Powder Coated, shiny or unpainted non porous concrete floors should be thoroughly vacuum blast cleaned to a roughness profile of 30-50 microns, or acid etched using Bradite Acid Etch TA37, or primed using Bradite Floor Primer ES40
  • High pressure water cleaning should be utilised to remove all loose and flaking paint and contamination back to a sound substrate. Bradite TD39 industrial strength detergent should be used if necessary to remove all grease and oil
  • Intact areas of existing coatings should be roughened by abrasive manual or disc rubbing and feathered back to a sound coating edge. Cracks and pits should be filled using a suitable screed or mortar before painting



Application


  • Application and use should always conform to the codes of practice described in BS 6150 and BS 5493
  • Applicable by brush, roller, conventional air spray, or airless spraying:
    • Brush and Roller - Supplied ready for use. Thin, if required, with up to 5% water.
    • Conventional Air Spraying - Thin with 5-15% Water as required, tip size - 2.0mm, tip pressure 60psi (0.4MPa)
      approximately.
    • Airless Spraying - Thin with 0 – 10% water as required, tip size - 18 thou (0.46mm) approximately, tip
      pressure - 2100 psi (15MPa) approximately.
  • For application on concrete, wood or other absorbent substrates, the first coat should be thinned 5-10% water to allow penetration into the substrate
  • For maintenance painting the 1st coat will be a touch up to bare areas only
  • While the floor will take light foot traffic after overnight drying, full cure may take 4 days at 20°C and should not be subject to heavy traffic for at least 48 hours
  • For additional underfoot traction, Bradite Low Slip Hard Aggregate LS30 should be added to the paint and mixed thoroughly just before use at a rate of 1 x 250ml LS30 tin (400g) per 5 litre of paint
  • Clean all equipment immediately after use with water for best result



Limitations


  • Compatibility with existing coatings should be confirmed by preparing and painting a test patch
  • Drying/curing times will vary depending on film thickness, temperature and relative humidity
  • Bradite Floor-It DP9 is suitable for use in domestic and light commercial garages. In the first seven days after application, vehicles should be left outside to allow tyres to cool down (especially after long journeys) to help prevent hot tyre pick up. Spills of petrol and diesel should be cleaned up as soon as possible to reduce the danger of slip and to prevent discolouration of the floor paint. Brake fluid is highly aggressive and will attack most floor paints on contact – use drip/capture pans when working on brake systems to prevent permanent damage to the floor paint finish
  • The end user and applicator must ensure that the finished floor is safe against slips in all likely usage conditions
  • Always refer to the Health and Safety sheet for the product before use, and observe the warning phrases on the label
