I bought a 20L drum of white paint. Being oil based it had to be stirred which was quite easy and took around 10 minutes. I bought a Cuprinol deck painting kit …. paint pad & extendable handle which made it easy to apply. Even with doors and windows open the vapour was very strong and after 10 minutes I chose to use a mask with built in filters. The smell remained strong for 24 hours but got less as the paint dried. The finish seems very tough and white was the right colour choice for a dark area. I doubt that a second coat will be required. Very pleased with the result and would recommend …. but invest in a breathing mask.
Concrete Floor Paint
If you are looking to paint a concrete floor or a concrete wall, Regal have a fantastic selection of concrete floor paint for you to choose from!

To use SuperTough Aggregate on a previously-painted floor, apply a coat of floor paint and then liberally scatter the grit over the surface of the wet paint. Allow the floor to dry for a full 24 hours. Once dry, remove the excess SuperTough Aggregate that hasn’t stuck with a soft brush. Then the paint over the whole surface of the floor again to seal the grit in place on the floor.
Single Pack Concrete PaintOur single pack range of floor paints include our ever popular durable and slip resistant “Antislip Quick Dry Concrete Floor Paint”. This concrete paint is a godsend for jobs where the floor is used in an environment that might become damp and represent a hazard to visitors such as commercial and industrial areas. These heavy duty paints also offer a degree of chemical resistance and 24 hour drying times. If you prefer a floor paint with a more glossy finish and don’t require the same levels of protection against solvents, salt and water, our Polyurethane Concrete Paint may be a slightly cheaper and more suitable choice. Those looking for a paint that provides a very thick covering, perhaps in heavy traffic areas where they are trying to create a heard wearing, smooth surface, our “Quick Dry High Build Floor Paint” is a great choice.
Two Pack Concrete PaintIn addition, Regal are specialists in the manufacture of two pack paints. These epoxy floor paints are especially suitable for application as a garage floor paints as they have excellent chemical resistance, a tough, impact resistant finish and will stand up to heavy traffic from vehicles and trucks. Epoxy floor paint come in two parts and in two stages. The first stage is to mix and apply the two pack epoxy floor sealer, as this provides the right base for the top coat as part of the two pack floor coating system. The product is delivered, as the name suggests, in two packs. Mixing them together in the proportions they are provided in initiates the chemical reaction that leads to a hard wearing epoxy finish that is superior to those achievable by single pack paint solutions. In order to use, take its activator and paint and ensure gentle but thoroughly mixing using a paint mixer tool. A range of brushes and tools are available for the purpose of ensuring a pleasing application of paint and we would be happy to discuss your requirements with you and advise on available options. Upon coating, care must be taken to avoid getting the floor wet for 7 full days as this leads to discolouration called “amine blush” or “amine bloom”. Once fully dry, this first coat can be painted with two-pack top coat. Provided a full 48 hours are allowed during which no heavy vehicles or equipment are placed on the floor, you will end up with a painted surface that will look great for many years!
Which Concrete Paint is Right for Me?Painting concrete comes with it’s own set of challenges compared to the painting most of us are used to. Concrete can have varying degrees of humidity, alkaline bloom (sometimes called surface laitance especially on new concrete where the lime in the mix has floated to the surface), oil and grease contamination on older floors not to mention the porosity can mean that water from below can by pushed up through the concrete by hydraulic pressure when the water table rises. Older concrete can also be contaminated with algae or other forms of biological growth hence the term often found when talking about old concrete referred to as “green” concrete. All of these challenges can be overcome with a little careful planning and good surface preparation and choice of the right product for the job. This is a job for specially formulated Concrete Floor Paint.
Excellent service and also great product. I had ordered the wrong colour and sent an e-mail to try and rectify my mistake but not expecting anything given the short timescale I had given this company. I was delighted when I received my order the following day with the new colour I wanted. Would definitely recommend!

I have used many different makes of floor paint Im my busy garage workshop, two pack and single pack and I have decided that this high build single pack paint from regal is the best choice for me …it is very hard wearing and easy to apply ,but the best bit is that it dries very quickly, so when I paint the floor on a weekend when the garage is closed it is ready for traffic on Monday morning with no problems …from time to time I re-coat it but overall I have found it to be the best on the market, price is reasonable given its performance too, if you are intending using this product I would advise you to use the high build undercoat with it as I have found that this not only makes painting easier but also extends its longevity, as I said I have tried most of the others but would now only buy Regal
