Prepare, strengthen and dustproof concrete floor surfaces with single pack or two component products from our wide range of floor primers and sealers for interior and exterior projects. Ensure maximum adhesion and optimum coverage with our professional grade concrete floor primers or keep the look of your floor with our clear concrete sealers.
For saving time and costs in stabilising, binding and sealing porous floor substrates, Rawlins Paints have compiled professional-grade floor primers and sealers that are compatible and suitable for commercial and industrial purposes. These include heavy-use concrete floor sealers for factory and warehouse locations, where durability for extended periods of time is essential. In waterproofing, binding and sealing freshly laid, renovated, or repaired concrete flooring, the problems associated with concrete dust are immediately removed, and any potential staining or discolouration from oils, fatty substances, grease, cleaning chemicals or UV exposure can be protected against.
Concrete floors which require high-performance primers to harden and seal the surface and further improve its adhesion, will lengthen the lifespan of topcoat systems – allowing for high-performance protection for longer periods of time in areas where manufacturing plant equipment needs to be installed and maintenance work kept to a minimum with the use of high-end products in the surface preparation and finishing stages.
The products listed in this category will protect untreated masonry and concrete floors in warehouses and more, against:
• Chemical resistance
• Oil spills and fuel leaks
• Abrasive cleaning chemicals
• Light to medium vehicular use
• Pedestrian and footfall traffic
• Concrete dust
• Surface and trapped substrate damp and moisture build-up
• Weather and environmental exposure
• UV discolouration
• See product datasheets for further specifications and related product compatibility for the ultimate concrete floor protection
Please refer to product datasheets for product compatibility with treating cement screeds, brickwork, blockwork, plaster and porous tiles.
Dependant on requirements, water-based and solvent-based floor primers and sealers are available. These differ in VOCs, drying time, recoatable times and approximate coverage rates. Each product varies in graded performance for; new-build projects which require a sealer to reduce the porosity of and work deep beneath new concrete surfaces, dustproofing it in a single clear coating - against older concrete flooring that has recently been repaired and may need a hardened sealer to further reinforce it.
Concrete floors in more aggressive environments, such as factories and warehouses, along with commercial garages and vehicle manufacture plants will require heavy-duty floor primers that can be overcoated with concrete or epoxy floor paints. These will help deliver high-performing protection against impact damage and light, medium and heavy vehicular use. If you prefer to use concrete floor primers and finishing paints by the same manufacturer, but are after a unique or specifically coloured topcoat, or are wanting further information about the compatibility of products by different manufacturers, please contact our technical support team. They can recommend suitable products, and offer application and storage advice on any purchases made.
The specialist team at Rawlins Paints can provide full technical support across all 3M, Blackfriar Professional, Coo-Var, Ennis-Flint, Everbuild, Jotun, Rus-Oleum, Sherwin-Williams, Sika and Thermilate floor sealers and primers.
Rawlins Paints also offer its own range of high-performance epoxy and clear floor sealers and primers for damp-proofing problematic and porous floor substrates, providing improved adhesion to areas requiring a full floor paint system installation, and priming sheet metal flooring.
