Resincoat Epoxy Primer is a premium-quality epoxy primer designed to provide an effective base coat for a wide range of surfaces. The low viscosity, solvent-free formulation allows for excellent penetration and adhesion, ensuring a strong and durable bond with the substrate. This industrial twin pack primer is ideal for preparing surfaces prior to painting, as it helps to seal and protect the surface, while also providing a smooth and even base coat for the application of Resincoat Epoxy Floor Paints.

Using an epoxy primer prior to applying Resincoat Epoxy Floor Paints is essential for a number of reasons. Firstly, it helps to create a strong and durable bond between the paint and the substrate, ensuring that the paint adheres well and is less likely to peel or flake over time. This is particularly important in high-traffic areas or environments where the surface is subjected to regular wear and tear.

Secondly, an epoxy primer helps to prevent moisture from penetrating the surface, which can cause damage to the substrate and compromise the integrity of the paint. This is particularly important in environments where there is a risk of water damage, such as in garages or warehouses.

Thirdly, an epoxy primer provides a smooth and even base coat, which helps to improve the coverage and quality of the top coat. This ensures that the finished surface looks professional and uniform, while also providing a high level of protection against wear and tear.



Please see below for coverage rates. If you are coating a large area and would like expert advice, please call our team who will be happy to assist you.

1kg: 5m²

2.5kg: 12.5m²

5kg: 25m²

10kg: 50m²

Please note: the above coverage rates are dependant on porosity of the surface.




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 Epoxy Primer. 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.



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. The cured final coat is ok for foot traffic, and ready for subsequent coats of either primer or your first coat of paint.


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



Roller sleeves should be used once per coat, two coats will require two roller sleeves.

This product should NOT be split. Taking smaller quantities from each tin, even if measured correctly, may cause issues with activating.

This product is NOT self levelling.
