Identifying the numerous benefits of a newly launched floor paint ideal for interior & exterior concrete floors.
A new, durable, hardwearing and fashionable floor paint, abecote Tough Polyurethane Paint, has been launched by a.b.e. Construction Chemicals – part of the Chryso Southern Africa Group.
According to a.b.e.’s Product Manager: Retail, Elrene Smuts, this is a top-quality product consisting of a single-component waterborne Polyurethane (PU) floor paint, which is ideal for interior and exterior concrete surfaces. In addition, it is suitable for DIY application and complements a.b.e.’s current retail offering of abecote Tough Epoxy Paint and abecote Clear Polyurethane Paint.
“This new water-based polyurethane floor paint provides an exceptionally attractive satin finish on concrete floors,” says Elrene. “It is simple to use and can be applied to any domestic concrete surfaces such as patios, garage floors, driveways, basements, storerooms, and is also suitable for light industrial and renovation applications. Two coats – with 10% diluted abecote Tough Polyurethane Paint as primer – are sufficient to provide a durable finish.”
• Environment- and user-friendly (solvent-free);
• Easy-to-use, water-based satin finish;
• Easy cleaning and good stain resistance;
• Single component – simple, no-mix formula;
• Excellent scratch, scuff and wear resistance;
• Chemicals and stain resistance;
• Resists hot-tyre pick-up marks;
• UV- and weather-resistant – colourfast and non-yellowing.
abecote Tough Polyurethane Paint is supplied in five-litre containers and is available in eight colours: White, Black, Traffic Green, Soft Grey, Golden Yellow, Havana Beige, Signal Red and Sea Grey.
“For application, the surface must be prepared by sanding with a suitable grade of carborundum block and thereafter vacuum cleaned to remove laitance, before applying two coats of the new paint,” Elrene concludes. “An over-coat can be applied after just four hours, ensuring an even surface over large areas – quick enough to be completed in just one day. The area can also be exposed to light foot traffic after 24 hours and vehicle traffic after 72 hours.”
