Watco Epoxy Matt Coat has been re-formulated to produce a ‘Best in Class’ water based epoxy resin. 

This tough, easy to use coating now dries faster to reduce downtime and lasts longer to save re-coating costs. The rapid drying formula also allows the application of two coats in one day. Our unique blend of the best resins available provide an attractive, low maintenance, hard wearing floor finish which lasts and lasts. Epoxy Matt Coat may be desirable to reduce glare or help hide minor imperfections in a worn concrete floor.

All grades now carry CE Mark EN1504-2 and have impressive test results for abrasion, scratch and impact resistance, as well as for adhesion, hardness and flexibility. They are also breathable, chemical resistant and safe for food production areas. The range carries an A+ VOC emissions rating with a low level of VOC.

All tests have been undertaken to ISO standard where applicable and demonstrated this ‘Best Ever Formulation’ to be 40% harder wearing than previously.

Surface preparation

Can be applied to bare or previously painted surfaces providing the paint is well bonded.

Bare Concrete – remove surface laitance, dust and any light dirt or grease deposits using Watco Etch & Clean. Watco Etch & Clean also etches smooth, bare concrete surfaces to provide a key. Flush with clean water and allow surface to dry. If residual damp remains this is acceptable since Epoxy Matt Coat is breathable.

Powerfloated or very smooth surfaces – Watco Powerfloat Primer should be used on very smooth or power floated surfaces.

New Concrete – new concrete should be left for four weeks to dry in the summer and six in the winter. The surface should then be prepared using Watco Etch & Clean and thoroughly rinsed away and left to dry prior to applying this coating.

Painted surfaces – abrade to remove loose paint. Check remaining paint is well bonded. Very smooth, glossy paint should be lightly abraded to provide a key. Watco Bio D can be used to remove grease and oil from painted surfaces. Watco Concroff is a very powerful degreaser for contaminated bare concrete (Concroff can soften paint).

Highly porous surfaces – a primer may be required for high suction surfaces such as sand and cement screed. Please contact us for advice.


Remove the two inner tins from the tall outer tin. Stir the contents of each tin thoroughly and pour all of the contents into the outer tin (scrape around the inside of the tins to remove any residue). Mix the components together thoroughly using a spatula or similar wide bladed tool (a piece of wooden batten is ideal). Continue mixing until an even colour and consistency are obtained. Do not mix more than one pack at a time. If a paint stirrer fitted to an electric drill is used, also use the spatula to blend in any unmixed material from the sides and bottom of the tin. 

Watco Epoxy Matt Coat Application

Best results are obtained in warm (minimum 15ºC), dry conditions with good ventilation. In very high temperatures (30ºC and above) it is recommended that bare concrete is lightly dampened first with water. Apply with a medium pile roller, working well into the surface of the concrete. Do not exceed the maximum coverage of 30m² per 5 litre pack, per coat. The product will darken slightly as curing commences and it should not be over rollered. The second coat can be applied as soon as the first coat is dry (generally 4-6 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. Avoid washing the surface for seven days.
