Duram Duraprime is a water-based epoxy primer that treats and seals surfaces in preparation for later waterproofing. It can be used on both damp and dry surfaces and is especially effective for priming new concrete as it penetrates the surface, forming a strong, waterproof bond and allowing for easy overcoating

New to Rawlins Paints in 2017 is Smartkote's Protectakote anti-slip industrial floor coatings range, including UV and weather-protection variants for optimum interior and exterior use. To improve adhesion on metal, glass, fibreglass and tiles, there are etch primers and sealers available, along with specialised accelerators to quicken the drying time of floor coatings in low temperature conditions and facilities.
Duram NS5 Metcote Etch Primer is a high adhesion metal primer with excellent etching qualities. This quality metal primer is solvent based and contains acids and adhesion promoters that etch the metal surface ensuring excellent adhesion. NS5 Metcote Etch Primer is quick drying and can be topcoated with most paints within two hours of application.
Smartkote Protectakote is a single component, ready-to-use, anti-slip coating with polyurethane performance for ultimate toughness. The course profile textured surface is ideal for interior floors, factory work-stations, walkways, stairs, ramps, vehicles and other areas where a flexible, durable and long lasting anti-slip surface is important.
Smartkote Protectakote 2K Metal Primer is a dual component etch primer suitable for achieving adhesion of polyurethane to all types of aluminium as well as all other metal types where adhesion is problematic. Protectakote 2K Metal Primer is suitable for applications involving complete immersion in water.
Smartkote Protectakote Accelerator is a pure, solvent free catalyst used to speed up the drying time of Protectakote non-slip and smooth coatings. Pre-weighed – just add and stir in, long pot life, drying times can be reduced to as little as one hour, humidity and low temperature effects which extend drying times can be reduced.
Smartkote Protectakote Clear Primer Treatment is a single component primer treatment, which can be used to prepare inorganic surfaces for the subsequent adhesion of Smartkote polyurethane coatings. This product ensures excellent adhesion of reactive, solvent-borne urethanes to unreactive inorganic surfaces without changing their appearance.
Smartkote Protectakote Safety Grip is an additive for Protectakote non-slip coatings which provides improved grip under wet conditions. Protectakote Safety Grip comprises accurately sized sand particles with no dust, fines or aggregations. Can be added to Protectakote at a 20% (m/m) level where wet conditions will be experienced, or where additional...
Smartkote Protectakote UVR is a tough anti-slip aliphatic polyurethane coating, which forms a colour-fast, abrasion and weather resistant film. Protectakote UVR is single component, ready to use and easy to apply. Protectakote UVR is easy to apply and ideal to create anti-slip areas on exterior and interior surfaces.
Smartkote Protectakote UVR Accelerator is a liquid second component which may be added to ProtectaKote UVR if desired to increase the rate at which the product cures at low temperatures or humidity. Protefctakote UVR Accelerator is not intended for use at normal room temperatures.
Smartkote Protectakote UVR Smooth is a tough, aliphatic polyurethane coating, which forms a colour-fast, abrasion and weather resistant film. Protectakote UVR Smooth is single component, ready to use and easy to apply. It can be used as a protective coating for many industrial and marine maintenance and new installations on exterior and interior surfaces.
Smartkote Protectakote WB is a water-based anti-slip polyurethane coating. Its textured finish is ideal to create safe, anti-slip walkways, steps and ramps on light industrial and commercial floors, for both interior and exterior applications. This water-based solvent-free formulation is weather resistant, has a low odour, and is non-flammable.
Smartkote’s specialist range of high-performance anti-slip primers and topcoats, Protectakote, is now available at Rawlins Paints. Designed to be ultra-durable for hard-working vehicular and industrial surfaces, Protectakote paints and coatings are single pack products, which are ready to use – providing a thicker coating than many other anti-slip paints available in the UK. If you require product support on any anti-slip paint, including the Protectakote range from Smartkote, please contact our technical support team.
Promoted as the keystone product range from Smartkote, Protectakote paints are ideal for quick and fuss-free preparation and topcoating of walkways, steps, ramps and more. Available in a range of finishes and colours, these coatings are flexible at low temperatures – meaning that they won’t crack or peel - providing high-tensile strength and high abrasion resistance. Further protection is provided against rust and chemical corrosion from petrol, diesel, acid and other chemicals – please refer to product datasheets for further details of each product’s chemical resistance.

Protectakote Anti-Slip Coatings
Available to buy today at Rawlins Paints, Smartkote Protectakote is a polyurethane enhanced anti-slip coating for interior floors and access areas – including walkways, stair and ramps. Its tough, anti-slip texture is flexible, durable and long-lasting in busy industrial workplaces, where vehicular activity requires a course coating. Please note that additional Accelerators are available from Smartkote for the Protectakote range to increase the rate at which the product cures at low temperatures or humidity – in, for example, cold storage areas of food processing plants or pharmaceutical facilities.
Although it can be used internally, Smartkote’s Protectakote UVR is a single-component, tough, anti-slip aliphatic polyurethane coating which delivers colourfast, abrasion and water/UV-resistant protection. Available in more colours than Smartkote Protectakote, its range includes high-visibility marking colours for helicopter pads on offshore-platforms, hospital rooftops and military properties.
For non-porous and difficult substrates for topcoats to adhere to, like marble, glazed tiles, glass, aluminium and other metals, Smartkote Protectakote’s Clear Primer Treatment is available to prepare the surface prior to applying any of Smartkote’s polyurethane coatings. This clear treatment is ideally suited to match clear anti-slip topcoats, where no visual change or discolouration of the substrate is required.
Marine, industrial maintenance or new installations on interior/exterior surfaces may benefit more from Smartkote’ Protectakote UVR Smooth. A tough, aliphatic polyurethane coating like its more course counterpart, that delivers improved chemical resistance and anti-rusting properties, UVR Smooth can be used to improve protection on metals, concrete, wood, fibreglass, PVC and rubber in external or internal environments. By adding a UVR Accelerator, its drying time can be accelerated for quicker time constraints on maintenance projects. Suitable for extreme environments, please check the product datasheet for recommended application solutions within the industrial, offshore and marine sectors.
