Ensure the surface to be painted is sound, clean, dry and free from grease or any substance liable to give adhesion problems. Scrape off any old or flaking paint until you have a firm surface.

questions James on 2021-12-03 22:09:39

Hi, I have threes questions 1. What products would be best for routine cleaning? 2. Also, I have followed the instructions (acid etch, floor sealer, etc) even applying three coats, but the finish I have is matt there is no sheen at all. Can you suggest why it has come out as matt? 3. My puppy peed on the floor and now there is a yellow mark that looks like it has stained the floor. Im hoping that any coffee/ tea spills won't stain also. Can you recommend a sealer to go over the paint?

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

Thank you for the enquiry, general domestic cleaning products should not effect the coating if used, we have contacted you directly for more information to assist further.

questions Robert Evans on 2020-11-06 11:37:21

Hello, is this paint ok to use on a resin floor?

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

Assuming the resin applied to the floor is a single pack, it is clean, dry, sound and prepared as detailed in the Technical Data Sheet then yes it would be suitable.

If the resin applied to floor is a two pack then we would recommend Rust-Oleum 9200 Rust-O-Thane.

questions John on 2020-03-25 11:51:03

Product states suitable for outdoor use, how durable on concrete slab fully exposed to all elements and foot traffic only?

questions Andrew Bryant on 2020-02-29 12:36:02

Can this paint be applied to a kitchen floor which has been levelled with a latex self-levelling compound?

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

You will need to confirm with the latex self-levelling compound manufacturer if the product is paintable or not. If they confirm it is overpaintable with a water based coating, then yes this product would be suitable.

questions Simon Price on 2020-02-23 12:43:37

Hello, is it possible to get a colour chart or sample pots of your acrylic floor paint?

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

Unfortunately no colour charts are available, the colours available are from industry standard colour ranges that are not unique to any one manufacturer. Also sample pots are not available due to these being from a professional line of products.

questions Jennifer Byrom  on 2019-02-27 21:45:40

We want to use this paint on newly laid asphalt in our kitchen. The asphalt will be 16mm thick. How long do we have to wait for asphalt to dry? Do we need to use primer?

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

This is the first time we have heard of asphalt being used in this situation. Asphalt is generally used outside and any tar residues which exude from the fresh coating will wash away in the rain over time. This isn’t going to happen in an internal kitchen environment. We would suggest you contact the installer of the asphalt and get their advice, i.e can the asphalt be coated, how long you should leave it, what preparation is required, etc.

questions Sue on 2019-02-23 12:54:01

Can it be used on a wet room floor?

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 


questions Teresa Barnes on 2018-12-05 19:18:07

I have floor boards that are probably pine and painted or stained black. I don’t know what they have been treated with. Will I be able to lightly sand and then use your acrylic paint. Also how to I request a specific RAL colour? Thank you

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

Yes this should be fine, however just ensure it isn't something like an oil or wax product that has been used on the floors as this would affect adhesion. You can click 'Select a different colour' on the product page to choose any RAL or BS colour in this product.

questions Gina on 2018-08-06 18:51:10

Is Blackfriar floor paint tough & durable enough to have in bedroom & withstand moving furniture around like bed etc on it .

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

Blackfriar Professional Acrylic Floor Paint is suitable for domestic use and could be used in this situation. Provided the floor is wood or concrete and the preparation is followed carefully the acrylic floor paint can be applied. Bare surfaces require a sealer followed by 2 coats of the floor paint as recommended. The coating should be allowed to fully harden before moving furniture about. Allow 7 days for the coating to cure hard. Any sharp objects moved across the floor may damage the coating, felt pads can be used under chair legs, bed frame lags etc and will minimise any damage.
