A durable, slip resistant coating for lines and step edges
Most paints are worn out very quickly by the regular foot traffic on step edges. This coating can be applied as a single, quick drying layer and is based on a 2 part epoxy for maximum abrasion resistance.
|Suitable for||Step edges and loading bays. Can also be used as a tough line marker. Concrete, brick, stone, wood and metals.|
|Interior or Exterior||Exterior and well ventilated interior use.|
|Coverage||1L will produce a 50mm wide line on approx. 50m of step edges.|
|Number of coats||1|
|Curing time||Ready for foot traffic in 4 hours at 15°C.|
All surfaces should be clean, dry, and free from oil and grease. Old stone surfaces may be extremely hard and shiny. The performance of Watco Stepmarker in these situations will be improved if the surface can be scarified first. If nothing else is available, vigorous use of a wire brush will assist.
Concrete should be sound and free from laitance and dust. Timber should be hard, dry and free from oils. Abrasion is recommended. Not suitable for use on inherently oily timbers unless they are abraded thoroughly. Abrade steel to a bright surface before coating. Do not use a primer. Other metals should be clean and dry. Mask the area to be painted with masking tape.
Ensure any interiors are well ventilated before application.
Add the entire contents of the curing agent (smaller tin) to the contents of the resin (larger tin) and mix thoroughly with a flat bladed tool until thoroughly blended and of a uniform consistency. Pay particular attention to the sides and bottom of the can. Pour into a paint kettle or tray before application. The mixed product has a working life of approx. 30-40 minutes at 20°C.
If appearance is critical we recommend the application of a small trial area first.
Do not apply at temperatures below 5°C. At surface temperatures below 10°C the coating may stiffen during application, but this will not affect performance. Apply by brush or roller to the prepared surface. Brush application usually reduces coverage but allows a thicker coating to be used. One good coat is usually sufficient.
