304 HB Epoxy Floor Coating is a two-part, solvent free epoxy floor coating which provides a hard-wearing, low maintenance finish for industrial & commercial applications.
304 HB Epoxy Floor Coating can be used as as a waterproof, tough, chemical resistant floor or wall coating in manufacturing and food preparation areas, warehouses, factories etc.
It is also suitable for use as an internal lining for concrete or steel storage tanks containing oils, chemicals, water, raw sewage, etc.
Anti-slip aggregate can be added if required (see ‘Slip Resistance’). Applied by roller and paint brush the product is low odour producing a seamless, hard wearing, hygienic floor finish.
This product is for Professional Use Only.

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 the 'Anti Slip' option can be selected when purchasing the product and the 250 micron grade of 508 Anti-Slip Additive will be added at 2.4% prior to receipt.
Alternatively if a more aggressive anti-slip finish is required 504 Standard Anti-Slip Aggregate or 505 Large Anti-Slip Additive can be scattered onto the first coat of 304 HB Epoxy Floor Coating whilst still wet (Full broadcast at approximately 2kg/m² or a partial scatter at 0.5kg/m²).
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.
Results based on adding 508 Fine Particle Anti-Slip Additive (250 Micron Grade) @ 2.4%.
- 5kg unit - add 200g
- 15kg unit - add 600g
- Dry PTV: 45-46
- Wet PTV: 39

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.

- 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
- Block work walls shall be sealed using 401 Epoxy Floor Primer
- Diamond grinding or shot blasting is the preferred preparation method prior to application as this ensures that a suitable mechanical ‘key’ is achieved
- 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.
- 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
- Do not apply to wet or uncured concrete surfaces
- The minimum application temperature is 5°C although please note that curing times will be significantly extended at low temperatures
- Under certain site conditions below 10°C there is a risk of whitening (blooming)
- Apply by brush or roller at a nominal rate of 0.25 to 0.3kg/m²
- After a minimum of 8 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
- 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 HB 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 HB Epoxy Floor Coating shall be applied strictly in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions
