Pumice aggregate is an extremely light aggregate which has the advantage of being able to mix into the paint prior to application. It is a non-microbead solution to a fine, aggregated finish. Pumice gives a rough-profiled finish and significantly increase slip resistance. When using, pour the pumice into the paint and mix thoroughly. After mixing, use the paint immediately. The paint must be applied with a roller to achieve a consistent finish.

SuperTough Aggregate is an iron-silicate grit. It has good shatter resistance and has a hard, sharp finish to give fantastic grip. 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.


About Epoxy Floor Paint

Whether you have a garage in your home that needs protection, or you have a commercial garage or warehouse that should look its best, you want something better than bare, plain concrete. The solution for these cases is epoxy floor paint. This gives a colourful, shiny look that makes you feel like you are standing in a showroom—not a garage or warehouse. This is especially beneficial in commercial environments when you want things to look their very best for the benefit of the customers.
In addition to looking good, epoxy also protects the floor. It resists oil stains, beads water and is easy to wipe clean. Quality epoxy resin floor paint will resist damage from acids and salts too. This means when you paint a surface with an epoxy paint, you can expect it to look great for years to come. You can use a dust mop for day to day cleaning and a broom and full mop with an epoxy cleaner to clean up larger spills.
Here at Regal Paints, we offer both epoxy floor sealer and an epoxy top coat in a variety of popular colours. It is recommended that you use these together to get the ultimate in coverage and durability. These epoxy paints are recommended for use in high-traffic areas and remain durable even in areas that are driven on by cars and trucks.
Our selection of fine epoxy paint is what brings customers to shop at Regal Paints. However, the excellent customer service is what keeps our customers coming back time and again. Whether you are a do-it-yourself-er looking for advice on painting your garage, or you are in charge of the interior of a huge warehouse facility, we are here for you. Browse our selection online or contact us with any questions or concerns. We are always happy to assist with your paint choice or if you have questions about the application process.

Useful information for applying Epoxy Floor Paint - Cold Weather Tips

We are frequently asked about the best conditions to apply Epoxy Resin Floor Paint and whether cold weather has any effect on the success of using floor paint. When the temperatures start to fall and the nights start to draw in, it's a good time to for us to share with you some essential tips to bear in mind when picking the correct time to apply epoxy floor paint in cold weather. While there are certainly things you mist watch our for, the approach of Winter season is not automatically too late for your epoxy flooring project.

Review Epoxy TDS for Temperature Requirements

The first thing you need to do is to carefully review the Technical Data Sheet (TDS) for your Epoxy Resin Floor Paint. On there, you will be able to locate the information about temperature specifications for that floor paint. These considerations will apply both to suitable application temperatures as well as for the specifications about suitable humidity levels and dew points. If you are in doubt about any of these issues, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss the project with you.
In addition to the above, please note that if you are working with a multi-coat Epoxy Resin Floor Paint, you need to ensure that the temperature requirements of each different product within that you may be using is suitable.
Again, primer can have differing environmental requirements to a base coat.  Top coat (e.g. polyurethane) can be different in its environmental sensitivities to base coat. Apart from temperature considerations, a general guideline is that you shouldn't apply Epoxy Resin Floor Paint if the humidity is greater than 85% or the temperature is less than 5°C.
If conditions are close to those limits that then it is really best to simply wait for more favourable conditions to ensure the best possible application. This is because most Epoxy Resin Floor Paints don't apply well in a damp environment and will have an adverse reaction to the water vapour in the air if you apply it in those conditions.

Essential Temperature Tips for Epoxy Floor Paint Application

The most important temperature to pay attention to is that of the floor, not the air.
This is because in the cold weather a concrete floor is frequently colder than the surrounding air.  There reasons for this are in the way that heat is conducted and the way it rises. The concrete floor is a good conductor of heat. The heat from the floor rises easily up form the concrete to warm the air above it and for that reason the measured air temperature will be higher. Epoxy concrete floor coatings will instantly take on the temperature of the concrete floor once it is applied to and it is this temperature you need to be aware of, not just at the point of application but throughout the entire drying process. The best way to measure this is to use an infrared thermometer.
Please take additional care when doing this temperature measurement to ensure that the concrete floor slab temperature around your doorways, vents, and walls is within the acceptable range. The thermal properties of these areas can mean that these can be some of the coldest spots within a heated factory, warehouse or garage and, to ensure a successful project it is vital that these should be in the correct range before applying the Epoxy Resin Floor Paint. In addition, you should always ensure test areas first before walking over them or applying a second epoxy coating. Your temperature worries are reduced significantly if your concrete floor has heated slab as this will mean that then your only concerns besides the correct slab temperature of course, would be humidity and dew point.
You can also look at heating the space where you are planning to apply the epoxy floor paint. This can be very effective, but it is does depend on how cold it is. It can take several days for a concrete slab's temperature to rise to the ambient air temperature. If you were to decide to go down this route, you should avoid kerosene heaters as they can release contaminants into the air which will end up in your floor! A better alternative are propane heaters as these are much cleaner burning.
NOTE: You should keep your epoxy products inside a heated room prior to use. This allows for much better mixing and activation of the epoxy floor paint when you are ready to use it.
One of the additional benefits of the application of epoxy in cooler weather is that the lifespan of your pot will be extended. Please remember that the curing time of your painted floor will be  extended in cold weather, and you may need to wait longer before applying a second coat or to gain full use of the floor. Another important consideration is that if you are up heating the floor or entire garage, you need to keep it heated until the epoxy fully cures, as if the temperatures drop below a certain level, the epoxy can actually stop curing and will never fully cure after that.
If you have any concerns, please contact us. We are happy to help and advise you on your project so you end up with a successful outcome when applying an epoxy coating to your floor in cold weather.
