Description

Description

Watco Heavy Duty Traffic Paint is a tough, two pack, solvent based epoxy resin coating for use in heavily trafficked concrete or asphalt, such as car parks, driveways and vehicle access areas.

This versatile, exceptionally strong coating contains a solvent which bites into asphalt surfaces, and slightly penetrates concrete surfaces for the maximum possible adhesion without the need (generally) for a primer. Heavy Duty Traffic Paint carries CE Mark EN 1504-2 and has impressive test results for slip resistance, hardness, abrasion, adhesion and impact resistance.

The high pigment level in this smooth finish exterior coating offers excellent covering power to keep your surfaces looking their best for longer. For areas where safety underfoot is required, Heavy Duty Anti Slip Traffic Paint is also available.

Application

Application

Surface preparation

New asphalt & tarmac – should be sound and at least 3 months old. If any residual oils remain, the surface should be washed using Watco Concroff.

Existing bare asphalt & tarmac – remove any grease or oil deposits using Watco Concroff

Painted surfaces – abrade to remove any weak or 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.

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. For the removal of heavier deposits of oil and grease we recommend Watco Concroff, again, flush with clean water and allow the surface to dry.

New concrete – as a guide, 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.

Metal – remove any dust and flaking material by disc grinding or wire brushing. Apply the coating immediately after preparation to the clean metal surface. Grease or oil can be removed using Watco Bio D. Allow the metal to dry before coating.

Galvanised Metal – Watco Galvaprime must be used to prepare galvanised metal.

Non-ferrous Metals – for advice, please contact our technical department.

Priming – is not usually required, but for open textured, or very porous high suction surfaces, such as sand and cement screed, use Watco 4 Hour Epoxy Primer to ensure a uniform finish and to prevent air entrapment bubbles.

Mixing

Remove the two 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 resin and curing agent together using a spatula or similar wide bladed tool, (a piece of wooden batten is ideal). For Heavy Duty Anti Slip Traffic Paint mix in the anti slip aggregate. 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 side and bottom of the tin. Tip the mixed components into a shallow paint tray - do not leave in the outer tin. This coating is not intended to be thinned, however in some situations up to 5% of Watco Solvent TH99 may be added to assist in application. 

Application

Heavy Duty:  Best results are obtained in warm (minimum of 15°C), dry conditions with good ventilation. Apply one coat with a medium pile roller (not foam) working well into the surface of the asphalt or concrete. It can be applied by brush but this may result in reduced coverage. Do not exceed the maximum coverage of 20m² per 4L pack. If a second coat is required, apply it as soon as the first coat is dry (generally 6 hours), and within 5 days of applying the first coat. If more than 5 days elapse, the first coat should be lightly abraded before the second coat is applied. Avoid washing the surface for 7 days.
