DIY Guide: Painting Concrete Floors


A step-by-step DIY guide to painting concrete floors

STEP 1: Scrub the floor with Plascon RemovALL High Strength Degreaser. Rinse with clean water and allow to dry.

STEP 2: Etch the floor with Plascon RemovALL Rust Remover and Concrete Etcher to ensure maximum adhesion of the Floor Paint. Rinse very well with fresh water and allow to dry.

STEP 3: Cracks or damaged flooring can be repaired with Polycell Masonry Patching Plaster or Polycell Rockset. Allow to dry well.

STEP 4: Paint your floor with your chosen colour of Plascon Floor Paint. Apply 2 coats, allowing at least 4 hours drying time between applications.

TIP: For a non-slip surface, add Plascon Grip Additive to the second coat of floor paint.
