Low temperature and high humidity will adversely affect application, drying and performance of any coating.

Surface Preparation

  • Surfaces to be painted should be free from nibs, cavities, and other imperfections.
  • Mould, oil stains, if any, must be removed.
  • Moisture content of concrete should be below 14% prior to application of any coating.
  • Concrete and render should be treated with Coo-Var Acid Etch prior to painting to remove any dirt and laitance and to create a good "key" for the paint.
  • Apply a 10% thinned coat of Teamac Chlorvar to prime and seal the surface prior to applying any unthinned coats.
  • Surfaces previously painted with Teamac Chlorvar and that are in good condition can be scrubbed clean and the surface roughened to help adhesion of the new coating.
  • Old perished Chlorvar coatings should be removed mechanically and treated as new substrate and prepared accordingly.

Preceeding Coat


  • Mix well before use.

Application Conditions

  • As dictated by normal good painting practice.
  • In confined spaces, provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.

questions Danny on 2022-10-25 17:05:12

Could you please tell me what the warranty is on the paint please I.e how long it will last please plus do you do sample pot’s please?


There is no warranty on the product and it is not available in samples sizes.

Please provide more infomration on the application to [email protected] and we can assist with suitability and expected life spans.

questions Paul on 2022-10-21 12:40:59

Hi Would this paint be suitable for leisure centers showers please? Or could you please advise me on what might be better. Many thanks


Plese can you send more information and pictures of the areas to [email protected].

What areas of the showers are to be painted and what are they made of?

Are they bare or previously painted or coated?

questions James on 2022-10-06 14:46:35

Hello, I am interested in using this highlight the edge of a hydrotherapy swimming pool for the visually impaired. The pool is 316 grade stainless steel, and the water will be constantly flowing over the painted edge. Its it suitable for this environment and will it get good adhesion on stainless steel? Pool water is 35 degrees C, and chlorine less than 1ppm Many thanks, James


Unfortunately no, this product would not be suitable for this application.

Assuming the stainless steel pool is clean, dry, sound and prepared as detailed in the technical data sheet, this will require the pool to be blasted to SA2.5 prior to application we can recommend Teamac 2 Pack Zinc Phosphate Primer followed by 3 coats of Teamac High Performance Polyurethane Topcoat (2 coats in a colour followed by one coat in clear).

questions Rob on 2022-10-05 17:38:27

What is the maximum permanent temperature of chlorinated rubber paint please


The paint will soften at 50 to 60°C. 

questions James Calvert on 2022-09-20 20:55:31

I have recently build an outdoor swimming pool with concrete / rendered walls. I’ve already painted the walls with Epoxy Resin paint but I’m not 100% happy with it. Would this rubber paint paint over the Epoxy Resin paint? (There has been chlorinated water in the pool for around 1 month)


Unfortunately no, we would not recommend the use of a single pack paint over the previously applied 2 pack paint.

Assuming the previously applied two pack paint is clean, dry, sound and prepared as detailed in the technical data sheet we can recommend Teamac High Performance Polyurethane Topcoat.

This is available in many RAL, NCS or BS colours in a gloss finish. 

We would recommend the previously applied paint is thoroughly cleaned and sanded, then a test for compatibility / adhesion is undertaken on a small area prior to full application.

questions David on 2022-06-26 21:31:36

Hi, Can this be used to black the bottom of a narrow boat. And can it be applied over an existing tar type blacking. If not do you have any recommendations? Thanks


Unfortunately no this cannot be used over a bitumen or tar coating, this would need to be removed completely before a system including Teamac Chlorvar Chlorinated Rubber Paint could be used.

If there is a bitumen-based product on the hull already, it is clean, dry, sound and prepared as detailed in the technical data sheet we would recommend Teamac Hull Blacking.

Normally this would need maintenance or another coat after 2 years.

questions Andrew Knox on 2022-03-24 19:13:08

We want to overpaint poolside wooden doors which have an unknown existing paint finish. If we use Teamac Chlorinated Rubber Paint what do you recommend as an undercoat. Can we also use this paint system to overpaint powder coated metal. Thanks


Thank you for the enquiry, we have contacted you directly for more information.

questions Caleb Whiteside on 2022-01-17 14:57:50

Is this resistant to 32% caustic soda?


No, unfortunately this is quite strong Sodum Hydroxide, which unfortunately Chlorvar is not resistant to.

However Teamac High Performance Polyurethane Topcoat would be resistant to 32% caustic soda.

questions John on 2021-11-18 21:19:27

Can you advise if there is a minimum application temperature? The notes says 'good normal painting conditions' so is it 10degrees? Thanks


There is not specified minimum termperature of application, but humidity should also be taken into consideration.

At lower temperatures the humidity will be higher, we would recommend application at 10°C of above.

questions Lisa on 2021-10-18 12:45:56

Hi. I am getting a garden room/shed to house my easy up pool and was thinking that this might be a good product to paint the inside of the shed to minimise water damage. The floor will be pressure treated when it arrives. Can I paint onto a pressure treated surface?


Assuming the timber is clean,,dry, sound and prepared as detailed in the techncial data sheet this could be used once the timber is primed with Teamac Metaclor Antifouling Primer.

questions Lynn Yorkston on 2021-08-30 14:17:49

Can you advise if this paint is suitable for a workshop floor. Also the existing floor paint is all chipped with areas of concrete exposed. What products would we need to ensure covered correctly? The area is 13m x 8m so if you can also advise quantities needed please. Thanks.


Thank you for the enquiry, we have contacted you directly for more information.

questions Lee Evans on 2021-07-23 15:16:04

Would this protect mild steel against Hypochlorite 15. if so how many coats would be needed.


This product with have some resistance to 15% hypochlorite, but due to the strength of it, it may discolour the paint with prolonged contact.

We would recommend testing on a small area prior to full application.

questions carl on 2021-07-05 16:16:46

How many coats are recommended for a swimming pool?


Assuming the substrate is bare concrete, it is clean, dry, sound and prepared as detailed in the technical data sheet, 3 coats would normally be required with the first thinned 10% wih Teamac Thinner 15.

questions Jay Mitchell  on 2019-10-13 16:25:57

Could I use this to paint a wooden hot tub to create a water tight coating and would it withstand a constant temperature of 40 degrees.


Teamac Chlorvar Chlorinated Rubber Paint can be applied to timber as long as Teamac Metaclor Underwater CR Primer is used first. It will provide a waterproof coating to the wood surface but will not fill/seal any gaps, cracks, etc. in the surface so the substrate should be sound prior to painting.

questions Les O'Neill  on 2018-07-30 18:01:43

I am quoting for a battery room floor, the existing paint has flaked in places and needs stripping off and repainting can you tell me what materials I need to repaint. The floor area is 27 square metres. Your advice would be appreciated. Regards, Les O'Neill.


Assuming you wish to protect the floor from Sulphuric Acid our 310 Chemical Resistant Coating would be our recommendation. This offers excellent resistance up to 99% concentrate of Sulphuric Acid.

Remove all of the existing failing coating, prime the concrete floor area with 1 coat of 401 Epoxy Floor Primer followed by 2 coats of 310 Chemical Resistant Coating.

Based on 27m² you would require 10kg of 401 Epoxy Floor Primer and 20kg of 310 Chemical Resistant Coating.

questions James Hughes on 2018-06-04 22:47:29

Is there a complete list of items the paint will bond to. I want to paint over layers of mdf wood and Eva foam but if that won’t work I can perhaps add a layer of material over the wood and Eva so that the paint bonds better. Any recommendations much appreciated


There isn’t an exhaustive list of what the Teamac Chlorvar Chlorinated Rubber can be applied, but we believe adhesion to EVA would be poor without pre-treatment. If you can advise what options you have as an alternative for the Teamac Chlorvar Chlorinated Rubber to be applied to we can advise suitability.

questions Gavin on 2017-07-11 17:40:02
Question: Hi I have walls around a swimming pool in a leisure centre to paint. Is this stuff ideal? And can I spray it using a graco airless? Thanks, Gavin

Our recommended specification for swimming pool walls and ceilings (not in the pool itself) is to prime first with Zinsser AllCoat (Solvent-Based),followed by 2 coats Zinsser Perma-White Interior - do not thin either product.

questions John  on 2017-06-19 07:16:58
Question: Is this paint heat resistant,as the acid in the tank we need to paint has a working temperature of 70 deg c.thank you .if it doesn't do you have a rubberised acid resistant paint that does?

Teamac Chlorvar Chlorinated Rubber Paint would not be suitable for this application. If you contact our Technical Department with the concentration and type of acid we should be able to offer a suitable coating.
