All surfaces should be clean, dry, sound and free from contaminants.
Concrete - power floated, granolithic and smooth surfaces should be roughened first to provide a good 'key' for the paint. This can be done mechanically by abrading or blasting, or chemically, using Coo-Var Acid Etch. These processes will have the advantage in addition to preparing the surface of also removing dirt and laitance. New concrete must be allowed to cure thoroughly which can take up to 3 months.
Other surfaces have to be prepared and primed with the suitable primer for that substrate.
Existing painted surfaces - Surfaces should be cleaned, degreased and sanded to ensure an adequate 'key' is produced. Remove all loose and flaking material and treat bare areas as new substrate and prepare accordingly.
- Do not apply if the temperature is likely to drop below 7 degrees C during application or during the drying process.
- In confined spaces provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.
- Apply directly to wood, Coo-Var All Metals Primer on Metal, Coo-Var Acrylic Floor Paint thinned 5% with clean water on all other unpainted surfaces.
