Floor Paint Application Tips:
Full directions for use are included in the separate tab above, but here’s an overview of a few things to be aware of.
- For newly laid concrete, allow plenty of time to fully cure; this is usually around 6 months. Should that amount of time be impractical, give us a call on 01942 884 122 to discuss the options.
- Prepare the surface by removing all grease and scraping away old flakes of paint to give a solid surface.
- Always stir the paint gently according to the instructions and never shake the tin instead. Agitating the tin may create bubbles that could appear later on the surface.
The correct solvent for thinning and cleaning for this product is Palatine White Spirit

Surface Preparation –
Do not apply to newly laid concrete. Surfaces to be coated should be at least 4 weeks old and have a moisture content of less than 8%. They should also be free from any contaminants or surface laitance (a weak dusty layer on concrete). Traces of grease or oil can be removed using Palatine M.P Thinners.
Very smooth concrete or concrete with surface laitance should be treated with Concrete etching fluid to ensure good adhesion. Treated areas should be thoroughly washed down and allowed to dry before coating.
Floor paints typically have poor adhesion to power floated concrete. Power floated floors must be either blast
treated or chemically etched prior to the use of Carbotread Floor Paint.
Painted Surfaces & Asphalt
Smooth & previously painted surfaces should be thoroughly abraded by sanding to improve adhesion and to remove any weak or loose material. It is advisable to test the coating on a small area first to check compatibility with previous coatings and adhesion. New asphalt should be sand rubbed when laid.
Surface Preparation – Wooden Floors
Sand down the surface where necessary to remove any existing coatings and loose material. Remove all dust and ensure surfaces are clean and dry before application of the coating. Seal any knots with a clear knotting solution.
Mixing Mix thoroughly for approx. 2 mins using a wide bladed stirrer. A wooden batten at least 25mm wide is ideal.
For anti-slip surfaces ensure the Texturing agent is evenly dispersed throughout the mix.
Best results are obtained in warm (minimum 15°C), dry conditions with a good through draught.
Apply using a brush and/or long pile, double arm roller.
On bare concrete floors it is recommended that the first coat be diluted with up to 20% White Spirit by volume prior to application. This will help seal the concrete surface. Once dried, a second coat can be applied at full strength.
On previously painted floors it is recommended that two thin coats be applied rather than one thick coat. This will prolong the life and performance of the coating. For wooden flooring allow to dry thoroughly before applying a second coat, if required.
Thinning and Cleaning: Use Palatine White Spirit.
Please note: The colours on the product listings are only given as a guide. This is due to the fact that every computer monitor has a different capability to display colours. In addition, everyone sees these colours differently. Sample pots are available to order upon request. Always carry out a test patch (approximately 100x100mm) before full application
to ensure compatibility with previous coatings and the substrate, and to ensure the colour achieved meets your requirements. Failure to do so will result in a product refund claim not being accepted.
