Description

A floor treated with our Garacoat Garage Floor Kit will give the ultimate protection for all concrete and stone garage floors.

Garacoat completely seals concrete dust, leaving an easy to clean, tough and long lasting barrier against grease, dirt, oil spills and hot tyres. It is an easy to apply water-based epoxy garage floor coating which is highly resistant to heavy foot and vehicle traffic.

Our advanced formula adheres strongly, resists peeling or flaking and maintains its appearance longer than standard garage floor paints.

  • 2 part water based epoxy
  • Chemical, water and tyre resistance
  • Easy to keep clean
  • Durable and long lasting
  • Can be applied to floors that have underfloor heating

  • The kit consists of an acid etchant to prepare the concrete floor, a 2-part Epoxy Coating in your colour choice, and a Floor Paint Application Kit. Choose from either a single or double garage kit.

    PLEASE NOTE: Garacoat should only be applied in temperatures above 10°C or the paint won't cure properly and will remain tacky.

    Preparation & Application

    Etch It
    Application
    Apply Etch It Floor Etchant evenly to ensure all areas receive a full treatment. We suggest you use a plastic watering can with a rose spout.

    Make sure the surface is clean and dry and apply the etcher, giving it a good scrub, with a stiff broom. Wait 15 minutes until the frothing has stopped and then flush the area thoroughly with lots of water – it’s so simple.

    A second coat may be required if your floor is in very poor condition.

    You’ll know if the job is finished when you re-scrape the surface area with a coin and no powdery film is left.


    Garacoat
    Preparation
    N.B. Garacoat should only be applied in temperatures above 10°C or the paint won't dry properly and will remain tacky.

    Before starting you will need to ensure the surface is dry, clean and doesn't have any loose or flaky parts on it. You’ll also need to roughen any existing painted surfaces so that the paint adheres. If your concrete is new you’ll need to leave it for at least four weeks and then treat the surface with Etch It to get rid of excess alkalinity. If your surface is oily then Clean It will take care of that.

    On sand and cement screeds a primer should be used, Prime and Seal is an epoxy resin primer which will give your floor the perfect base for painting.

    Each unit of Garacoat is made up of a tin of epoxy resin and a separate tin of curing agent. Once you have mixed the two components together a chemical reaction takes place and the paint will harden in the tin in 1 hour. For this reason you will need a separate unit for each coat, we do not recommend splitting the contents of a 2.5L or 5L unit for part mixing as if the components are not split accurately, the product will not cure properly.

    Mixing
    Garacoat garage floor paint is a two-part product consisting of a resin and a hardener, which are supplied in separate tins. The small resin tin should be decanted into the large tin containing the hardener and mixed thoroughly to achieve an even colour and consistency. Stir the floor paint well, but please don't thin it. Continue mixing until an even colour and consistency are obtained.

    Application
    Apply with a medium pile simulated sheepskin roller, working well into the surface of the concrete. Do not exceed the maximum coverage.The product will darken slightly as it cures and it should not be over rolled. The second coat can be applied as soon as the first coat is dry (generally 12-18 hours) and should be applied within 5 days. If more than 5 days elapse, the first coat should be lightly abraded before the second coat is applied.

    You can, under normal temperatures, bring the area back into use somewhere between 16-36 hours. However, the lower the temperature the longer the drying time.

    Winter Application Advice
    A question we are often asked is, ‘Should I paint a concrete floor in the winter?’ As people who sell floor paints, you might expect a resounding ‘Yes’ from us. However, whilst you can certainly carry out this kind of task in cold weather, you will need to be aware of the following

    We don't advise you to paint floors at temperatures lower than 10°C, which means the air temperature needs to be 15°C. To check, lay a thermometer on the floor. To raise the temperature you will need an electric blower, which can be hired from HSS etc. The golden rule is, heat the floor not the air, but by heating the air you will heat the floor. Don’t use a heater to dry the paint as this will affect the final finish.

    If you can’t do this, then we recommend you leave the project until the spring.

    If you do paint at less than 10°C then the paint will still go down, but will take longer to dry and will be more prone to scruffs and stains. In the cold or damp, it can dry to a matt finish, which you may not want.

    On the whole, you will probably have more success painting in the winter if your garage is integral to your house. Stand alone garages are likely to be colder.

    There is no reason not to buy your paint now though, as its shelf life is 2-3 years providing you don’t let it freeze.
