Slip Resistance


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, if a more aggressive anti-slip finish is required 504 Standard Anti-Slip Additive or 505 Large Anti-Slip Additive can be scattered onto the first coat of 304 HD Epoxy Floor Coating whilst still wet (approximately 1-2kg of additive per 5kg of coating). The following day any excess aggregate may be swept from the surface using a clean brush prior to application of the second coat to ‘sandwich’ the anti-slip additive.

NOTE: For our ultimate slip resistance see 502 HD Anti-Slip Coating.

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

  • 5kg unit - add 200g
  • 15kg unit - add 600g
  • Dry PTV: 48-50
  • Wet PTV: 40-42

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 8.3-10.0 m2 of surface with the recommended two coat treatment, providing an overall d.f.t. of 400-480 microns



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
  • Blow holes and defective concrete shall be made good using 201 Epoxy Repair Mortar
  • Suitable mechanical treatment such as vacuum grit blasting is the preferred treatment prior to application as this ensures a mechanical ‘key’ for the coating



Steel:

  • Steel surfaces shall be shot blasted or grit blasted to a nominal Sa 2.5 Swedish standard
  • All dust and grease shall be removed prior to coating application
  • If a delay is likely to occur between blasting and application then it is recommended that a coat of 404 Epoxy Metal Primer is applied as holding primer to obviate flash rusting



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.



Mixing:

  • Pour the contents of the curing agent container into the base container and thoroughly mix, preferably by mechanical means until a uniform colour is achieved



Mixing Ratio:

  • By Volume = 2.44 Base: 1 Curing Agent
  • By Weight = 100 Base: 28.2 Curing Agent



Application


  • Apply by brush, roller or airless spray at a nominal rate of 0.25 to 0.3kg/m²
  • After a minimum of 14 hours and before a maximum of 48 hours, apply a second coat at the same rate
  • Should a non-slip finish be required, refer to the ‘Slip Resistance’ heading



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



Storage & Shelf Life


  • Store in dry conditions, out of direct sunlight, at temperatures between 10°C and 25°C
  • 304 HD Epoxy Floor Coating 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 clean water, and immediate medical attention sought
  • Please refer to Material Safety Data Sheet for additional Information
  • 304 HD Epoxy Floor Coating shall be applied strictly in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions

questions Dave wood on 2020-06-21 09:44:41
Question: 

Can I use this over fresh self level compound? Does it need priming?

Answer: 

Please consult the Technical Data Sheet for the applied self leveling compound to confirm compatibility and curing time prior to painting.

Assuming that is done and the floor is clean, dry, sound and prepared as in the Technical Data Sheet for the 304 HD Epoxy Floor Coating, it could be applied directly without a primer.

questions Phil on 2020-05-18 22:35:41
Question: 

I have a newly laid concrete floor ( 3 months old), laid to a depth of 6 inches that although not power floated, it has been trowelled to a very smooth finished so it practically looks power floated. It is a new garage workshop floor. The workshop has not yet been used as I don't want to occupy it until the floor paint is down. What surface preparation other than a good clean and hoover do you recommend in advance of using your 304HD epoxy paint? And how long will I have to get the paint down once it is mixed? Thanks

Answer: 

Before application the concrete should be a minimum of 21 days old and/or the residual moisture content below 6%.

Ensure that the concrete is clean and free from dust, laitance, grease, oil, curing compound and existing paint finishes.

Suitable mechanical treatments such as vacuum grit blasting or grinding are the preferred preparation methods to ensure best performance. Acid Etch treatment may also be suitable but would offer reduced performance for the system.

Pot life once mixed at 20°c is 45 minutes.

Our 402 Damp Proof Coating may be of interest to you on this project as this can be used as a primer or a high build coating in its own right for damp and/or minimally prepared substrates. It has been developed to supress residual construction moisture, allowing the user to coat new concrete floors earlier in fast track building programmes.

For further information on any of the above products mentioned, you can download the Technical Data Sheets from the 'Attachments' tab on each product page.

questions Brian.L on 2020-05-09 22:19:39

Question: 

what area in square meters would a 15Kg tub cover

Answer: 

48m².

questions Helen  on 2019-02-04 01:23:06
Question: 

Can I use this paint on quarry tiles? Thanks

Answer: 

We couldn’t guarantee the performance of our 304 HD Epoxy Floor Coating over quarry tiles. The tiles would need diamond grinding to remove the top surface and to provide a porous key, which can be difficult to achieve. Also, the tile profile will be visible through the coating. The other issue with tiles, particularly in wet areas, is that water can be trapped below (that has soaked through the grout lines) and then once coated the trapped moisture can lead to the coating bubbling/de-bonding.

questions Dan conway on 2015-05-31 13:25:35
Question: 

Hi I have used 304 HD Epoxy Floor Coating on my garage floor and put on either too thick or not mixed well enough and after 1 week it remains wet in places, what can I do?

Answer: 

It's very difficult to apply the 304 HD Epoxy Floor Coating too thickly so the most likely cause of patches not drying is the activator not being mixed in thoroughly enough with the base before use. Unfortunately at this stage there isn't a quick fix, you will need to remove any product that hasn't dried completely using scrapers, rags, etc. and then re-prepare and apply more 304 HD Epoxy Floor Coating to bring the patches back in with the rest of the floor.
