DESCRIPTION

What is an antimicrobial?

Independently tested our antimicrobial floor paint offers effective and trusted antibacterial protection ensuring your flooring remains hygienic at all times. With the added anti slip profile this coating is great for areas such as factories, hospitals, doctors surgeries and anywhere else that requires protection. An antibacterial coating specifically prevents the growth of bacteria whilst our antimicrobial coating goes further than this destroying bacteria as well as a wide range of microbes such as fungi and mould. The coating is also resistant to antibiotic – resistant bacteria such as MRSA & VRE.

Long lasting antimicrobial anti-slip floor paint

Our coating provides 24-hour protection against most harmful microbes for the lifetime of the product. Additionally it is specifically formulated to meet and, in many cases, exceed guidelines set about by the Health and Safety Executive in the UK providing excellent anti slip resistance ensuring your surfaces always remain safe. We proudly manufacture our epoxy in the UK guaranteeing high quality performance. Incredibly durable the coating boasts a long lasting, smooth high gloss finish.

APPLICATION GUIDE

Preparation

Old paint finishes should be removed if flaking at all and the surface should be sanded to create a texture (also known as a mechanical key) prior to applying Resincoat Antibacterial Anti Slip Epoxy Floor Paint. When preparing for a floor coat, doing so mechanically (shot-blasting or grinding) is always advisable for best results, but if that is not possible then sanding the area or our Etch and Clean is a good alternative. After the surface has been completely abraded, thoroughly sweep and vacuum the area of any remaining dust or contaminants. For more information on preparation, please see technical data sheet. 

Please note: Etch and Clean is only suitable for use on bare concrete.

 

Priming

For new concrete floors or floors in good condition, prime with Resincoat Damp Tolerant Primer

For dusty, old or weaker floors prime with Resincoat Deep Penetrating Primer

For greasy floors with heavy oil residue clean thoroughly using a suitable degreaser scraping off any dust or dirt and then prime with Resincoat Oil Tolerant Primer

 

Application

We advise when applying this product the ambient temperature is at least 7°C.

1. Mix Part A on its own with a mixing paddle attached to an electric drill for about 1 minute before adding ALL of Part B and continue to mix for another 90 seconds, keeping the paddle in suspension to avoid mixing air into the unit.

2. Pour entirety of the tin's contents into a plastic paint scuttle or tray.

3. Immediately begin applying your paint with a nylon-bonded resin suitable roller.

4. Use a brush around the edges to cut in (a second pair of hands can be useful for this stage).

5. As soon as the first coat has started curing (is no longer tacky to touch) you can re-coat; this should take 12-24 hours.

6. If course anti-slip profile was purchased, the aggregate will have come separately. This must be added manually, typically by scattering by hand it onto a still-wet first coat of paint and then back-rolling the paint.

7. The cured final coat is ok for foot traffic. Cars and heavy objects, however, should be left off the new coating for the first 48 hours and chemicals including water should not be introduced for the first 7 days (Full chemical cure).

 

PLEASE NOTE: The pot life of this product is 20 minutes. This means that once parts have been mixed, the paint will start to chemically cure after this time. Ensure you remove the paint from the tin in this window. The paint will then be workable on your floor for up to 40 minutes. 

Pot life = Time to harden in pot following addition of hardener

Working Time = Time to apply product before it becomes unworkable

 

USEFUL INFORMATION
