Make slippery floors safe during the winter months
Watco Safety Coat Cold Cure is an advanced new formula which allows floors to be coated as low as -10°C. It is ideal for refurbishment and maintenance in unheated areas during the winter months, when conventional coatings will not set. Its exceptional resistance to UV also makes it ideal for exterior applications.

All surfaces must be -10°C or above and free from ice or water. Concrete to be treated must be at least four weeks old, completely dry and free of contaminants. Grease or oil should be removed with Watco Bio-D (or a similar emulsifying degreasant) and the area thoroughly washed off and allowed to dry. Very smooth concrete or concrete with surface laitance (a weak dusty layer) should be mechanically abraded or etched with Watco Etch & Clean to ensure adequate adhesion. The concrete should be thoroughly washed down and allowed to dry after treatment with Watco Etch & Clean. Watco Powerfloat Primer is an alternative preparation if wetting the floor or using Watco Etch & Clean is an issue. The temperature will need to be 15°C or above for this application. Previously painted surfaces should be thoroughly abraded by sanding to improve adhesion and to remove any weak or loose material. A trial area is advisable to test compatibility with previous coatings. Do not apply outside if rainfall is imminent.
Mix between 10°C and 25°C. Remove the two inner tins from the tall outer tin. Stir 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 a 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, use the spatula to blend in any unmixed material from the sides and bottom of the tin. Do not dilute.
Apply between -10°C and +30°C. The viscosity will be somewhat thicker at very low temperatures.
