Blackfriar Professional Polyurethane Floor Paint protects and transforms floors with an attractive, tough and hardwearing finish. Resists oil, grease and chemicals, making it ideal for indoor and outdoor industrial and domestic surfaces.

Recommended Uses

  • Wood
  • Concrete
  • Cement
  • Metal
  • Brickwork


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. Special attention should be given to areas under cars to ensure all oil, grease, dirt and road salt is removed. New concrete must be left for at least 6 months before applying Blackfriar Professional Polyurethane Floor Paint.


Stir thoroughly before use. Apply with a brush or roller working the paint in any surface imperfections. On bare or new surfaces first apply Blackfriar Professional Floor Sealer followed by 1-2 coats of Blackfriar Professional Polyurethane Floor Paint. On previously painted surfaces apply 1-2 coats as required.

Blackfriar Professional Polyurethane Floor Paint is not suitable for use over PVC, thermoplastic tiles, quarry tiles, asphalt floors or 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 Floor Sealer prior to applying 1-2 coats of Blackfriar Professional Polyurethane Floor Paint.

Surfaces are slippery when wet. To ensure slip resistance the floor must be kept dry when in use. The use of protective mats will help preserve the surface under tyres.

Drying Time

4-6hrs @20°C. Allow to dry for a minimum of 16hrs @20°C between coats. Allow to dry for a minimum of 48hrs @20°C before subjecting to heavy traffic. Full cure is achieved in 5- 7 days @20°C.

Clean Up

Remove as much product from application equipment as possible before washing with a suitable brush cleaner or White Spirits. Do not empty into drains or watercourses. Some local authorities have special facilities for the disposal of waste coatings.

questions Victoria on 2019-06-21 12:24:54

Can I use this on top of latex based leveled floors ?


You would need to refer to the manufacturer of the levelling screed you have used. Usually levelling screeds containing latex are not intended to be left as wearing courses and cannot be painted with anything.

questions stewart on 2018-07-25 09:08:08

Hi, does this need undercoat if painting rubbed down railings ?


Blackfriar Professional Polyurethane Floor Paint is not for use on railings, assuming you have previously painted, metal railings that need re-painting we would instead recommend Rust-Oleum CombiColor.

questions Lisa Courtney on 2018-04-14 10:47:47

Can this be used on stair treads? Thank you


Assuming the surfaces to be painted are suitably prepared wood, concrete or metal then yes. However, surfaces are slippery when wet, to ensure slip resistance the floor must be kept dry when in use. Alternatively to ensure better slip resistance you could use Blackfriar Professional Anti-Slip Floor Paint.

Question: Was interested in polyurethane floor paint for outside use given the wide colour range. However I notice it's only in gloss. Are there any alternatives to get a Matt stone colour? Thanks

Rust-Oleum 7200 Floorcoat PU is available in nearly all RAL and BS colours and is available in a Satin Finish.

questions Lesley on 2017-10-05 09:47:43
Question: Hi, Can this product be used on exterior concrete steps? If so, would I need to use a primer first? Many thanks

On bare or new surfaces first apply Blackfriar Professional Solvent Based Floor Sealer followed by 1-2 coats of Blackfriar Professional Polyurethane Floor Paint.

questions Daniel on 2017-08-12 15:58:09
Question: Hi, can I use this paint on a concrete floor that has previously been treated with a solvent based sealant? I used Ronseal concrete seal, then discovered I could not paint over with the product I had bought. Really need a paint I can use in this application.

We have no knowledge of the Ronseal product but assuming it can be overpainted with Solvent Based floor paints then Blackfriar Professional Polyurethane Floor Paint should be fine to use.
