Previously painted floors - As with all coating applications, suitable pre-treatment of the floor is of the utmost importance. Old paint, especially with suspect adhesion or of an unknown type, should be completely removed. Some paints may still lift, be softened, or cause poor inter-coat adhesion when this system is applied on top of them. So, it is always advisable on any surface to check for suitability and defects by undertaking small-scale trials. If the old paint is satisfactory, clean and abrade the surface in the normal way.
Heavily contaminated floors - SureStripe W215 will not adhere satisfactorily to deposits of grease, oils etc. It will be necessary to mechanically abrade the floor to remove the excess contamination.
New floors/uncoated surfaces - For best results prime concrete with Meon UniPrime W252 before applying SureStripe W215. It is important to allow sufficient drying between the coats.
Concrete - Should be clean, dry and free from dust, dirt, grease and other contaminates etc. Do not apply to newly laid concrete. Surfaces to be coated should be at least 4 weeks old and have a moisture content of less than 7%.
Please note that any smooth/polished surface will require special preparation; please call or email pictures of your specific situation and we will advise on recommended preparation procedure.
Test trials should be carried out in the first instance on a small area.
Stir thoroughly with mechanical mixer before use.
Best results are obtained in warm (minimum 10°C and rising), dry conditions with a good through draught. SureStripe W215 can be applied using airless spray equipment with a L213 tip, however there could be overspray. For best finish, it is recommended the edges are masked off to get a straight edge using Meon ProGaff tape applied using the StraightLine tape dispenser and apply SureStripe W215 with mini roller, brush or using airless spray equipment.
Surface Dry: 30 minutes
Hard Dry: 1 hour
