HOW TO APPLY
Any protruding nails should be dealt with; use a hammer and punch to knock them in. Sand off any blemishes and give the surface a good wipe over with a damp (not wet) cloth and allow to dry thoroughly. Stir the paint and apply it. If the boards are pitted or damaged, you may want to put some wood filler into offending holes, splits and gashes.
Depending on the condition of your floorboards, and the look you want to achieve, you may need two coats. If there are substantial blemishes then two coats are recommended, which will make them even harder wearing. Apply by brush or mini roller. Do not use a normal sized roller as this will cause drips in between the boards, which could be a problem if you are painting an upstairs room as the paint will work itself down onto the ceiling below.
It's usually touch dry in 12 hours, but please make sure it's completely hard before using the floor. Ideally leave it for two days (assuming the temperature of the room is 15°C and you have good ventilation), after which furniture should be 'placed' not 'dragged' over fresh paint to avoid scratching and damage.
This dries to a low sheen finish, so it isn't completely matte but it isn't glossy. Please see our Gallery below for photos.
Keep the surface clean by wiping it over with a damp (not wet) cloth.
We would advise giving any existing coating a sanding/abrasion to provide a really good key, and then ensuring the surface is clean prior to painting.
This is a polyurethane paint and very durable, designed for general household foot traffic. It is stain resistant and wipeable so no need for a top coat and you will just need to sand off any blemishes and ensure the surface is clean prior to application, no primer required.
You will need to sand back the existing paint to create a good key for the paint to bond to. Also ensure the surface is clean and dry before application.
