Description

303 Epoxy Floor Paint is a high performance, water dispersible epoxy coating for the protection and decoration of floors and walls. It is designed to be user and environmentally friendly, containing no solvents and is low odour during application.

303 Epoxy Floor Paint leaves a smooth satin finish when dry. Anti-slip properties of the coating can be enhanced by the addition of 508 Fine Particle Anti-Slip Additive which can be mixed in with coating prior to application – refer to the ‘Slip Resistance’ section for more information.

Note: 303 Epoxy Floor Paint in some cases may be applied to newly laid concrete (after 7 days) by incorporating a coat of 401 Epoxy Floor Primer first – please contact our Technical Department on 0113 2455450 (option 2) or send a message to [email protected] for details.

A Winter Grade version of this product is also available.

Slip Resistance


Results based on adding 508 Fine Particle Anti-Slip Additive @ 3%.

  • 5kg unit - add 200g
  • 15kg unit - add 600g
  • Dry PTV: 58-60
  • Wet PTV: 45-48



PTV Ratings:

Slip potential classifications from Pendulum Test Values.



Slip Resistance Values
PTV Slip Potential
< 25 High
25 - 35 Moderate
> 35 Low



The above results must only be used as a general guideline as the slip resistance of a cured resin coating can vary considerably due to many factors including: application technique, variations in film thickness, dispersion of the anti-slip texturing additive and the surface variations of the substrate and location to where it will be applied.

To obtain accurate PTV readings that are site specific (if required) it is strongly recommended that a slip assessment pendulum test is undertaken on each specific site after completion of the installation when the resin has fully cured.

A full copy of the official test report is available upon request.



Coverage


  • A 5kg pack is sufficient to treat 10.0-12.5 m² of surface with the recommended two coat treatment
  • Provides an overall d.f.t. of 200-250 microns (15kg pack pro rata)



Surface Preparation


Concrete:

  • Concrete shall be a minimum of 21 days old and/or the residual moisture content shall be below 6%
  • Ensure that the concrete is clean and free from dust, laitance, grease, oil, curing compound, and existing paint finishes
  • Smooth concrete, or concrete with soft laitance, shall be mechanically treated by diamond grinding or grit blasting to provide a clean profiled surface
  • Should this not be practicable then acid etching, although less preferable, is also an option
  • Blow holes and defective concrete shall be made good using 201 Epoxy Repair Mortar
  • Suitable mechanical treatment, such as vacuum grit blasting, is recommended to ensure a clean, uncontaminated substrate



Metal:

  • Metal surfaces shall be wire brushed or power disced to remove any rust and loose or flaking material
  • Grit blasting is recommended, where practical, for optimum performance
  • Surface should then be immediately coated after preparation with 404 Epoxy Metal Primer



Wood:

Note: Substrates with high moisture content or oil contamination can still be coated in most instances by the inclusion of one of our specialist primers. Please see 402 Damp Proof Coating and 403 Oil Tolerant Primer for full details.

303 Epoxy Floor Paint will not tolerate movement in the substrate, if there is a possibility the substrate may flex, expand and contract, shift etc. use one of our flexible coatings - Please consult our Technical Department on 0113 2455450 (option 2) or send a message to [email protected] for specific advice.



Priming:

  • A primer coat of 401 Epoxy Floor Primer is recommended on concrete substrates
  • This will facilitate application to damp and/or absorbent surfaces
  • Apply the 401 Epoxy Floor Primer at a nominal rate of 0.2kg per m² in accordance with the product data sheet instructions
  • Allow the milky colour of the primer to disappear before overcoating
  • This will typically be between 2-4 hours, depending on temperature and ventilation conditions
  • Alternatively, the primer may be left overnight



Mixing:

  • Pour the contents of the curing agent container into the base container and thoroughly mix, preferably by mechanical means until a uniform consistency is achieved
  • The mixed material may be thinned by the addition of up to a maximum of 10% by volume of clean, potable water



Mixing Ratio:

  • By Volume = 1 Base : 2.62 Curing Agent
  • By Weight = 39 Base : 100 Curing Agent



Application


  • Apply by brush, roller or airless spray at a nominal rate of 0.20 to 0.25kg/sq.m. per coat equivalent to a dry film thickness of 100-125 microns
  • A minimum two coat treatment is recommended, applying subsequent coats after a minimum interval of 16 hours curing
  • Ensure good ventilation after application, as this speeds up the physical drying stage of the curing process
  • Should a non-slip finish be required, 508 Fine Particle Anti-Slip Additive can be added to the coating during mixing prior to application to produce an even and easily cleanable texture to the dried surface
  • Alternatively for a more aggressive anti-slip finish 504 Standard Anti Slip Aggregate can be scattered onto the first coat of 303 Epoxy Floor Paint whilst still wet
  • The following day any excess aggregate may be swept from the surface using a clean brush prior to application of the second coat



Cleaning




Curing


  • Allow to cure for a minimum of 24 hours @ 20°C prior to light foot traffic access and 48 hours @ 20° prior to vehicular trafficking
  • 7 days cure @ 20°C is recommended prior to exposure to chemicals
  • Good ventilation is essential for satisfactory curing of the coating
  • Lower temperatures will extend the curing time



Limitations


  • Do not apply to wet or uncured concrete surfaces
  • Do not apply at temperatures of 3°C or less
  • In poorly ventilated areas forced extraction must be provided



Storage & Shelf Life


  • Store in dry conditions, out of direct sunlight, at temperatures between 10°C and 25°C
  • 303 Epoxy Floor Paint has a minimum shelf life of 12 months when stored in original, unopened containers in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions



Health & Safety


  • Avoid contact of the material with skin and eyes
  • Wear gloves and goggles
  • Wash off splashes immediately with soap and water
  • Any eye contamination must be rapidly irrigated with copious amounts of water, and immediate medical attention sought
  • Please refer to Material Safety Data Sheet for additional information
  • 303 Epoxy Floor Paint shall be applied strictly in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions

Question: 

Hi, We are using the mid green 303 epoxy paint for pedestrian walkways but we have an area where fork lifts will cross the walkway a few times per day. Is the 303 good enough to stand up to some FLT traffic or which paint should I be using for this area? and do you have a colour match for that paint to the mid green or the RAL code for Mid green? Kind Regards - John

Answer: 

Our 303 Epoxy Floor Paint is more than capable of dealing with the level of traffic you have described, however if you wished to increase the durability additional coats of our 304 HD Epoxy Floor Coating.

The Mid Green colour in our 303 or 304 Epoxy floor coatings is an in house colour but would be closest to RAL 6002 Leaf Green.
