FLOOR-IT from Bradite is a single pack product that’s said to be re-coatable in just one hour. Formulated for use in light- to medium-traffic situations, it’s said to be suitable for factory walkways and general shopfloor usage where speed of completion is a major consideration. The nearest competitor floor paints offer re-coating times of between 4-8 hours, says Bradite.
‘Floor-it is a high-performance ambient crosslinking water-based acrylic floor paint that has no odour. It’s suitable for use internally or externally on appropriately prepared concrete, wood, metal, or asphalt floors. It can also be used on polyurethane, epoxy and chlorinated rubber coated floors.’
The company continues: ‘The semi-gloss finish dries very hard with strong adhesion. Applied by either spray, brush, or roller, it has a coverage, depending on the porosity of the substrate, of up to 11sq m per litre.
‘Bradite recommends two coats of Floor-it for an existing floor or one thinned and two standard coats for a newly laid floor. Tests have shown that the tough finish can withstand so-called hot-tyre pick up where coatings can blister if driven over by a rubber-tyred vehicle.’
The company says Floor-it is available in a full range of Bradite Floor Paint colours: RAL, British Standard and NCS. And it can also be used with the company’s low-slip additives LS29 or LS30 to provide additional underfoot grip.
