Useful Information

Our Epoxy Floor Paint needs to be applied in two coats. It’s supplied as a tin of resin and a tin of curing agent. And when you mix the contents of the two tins together, it starts a reaction which causes the paint to cure.

If you’re painting an area of up to 15m², you’ll need two 2.5L tins (because, once mixed, a 5L tin won't keep for the second coat). Whereas, for an area of roughly 30m², you’ll need two 5L tins.

  • Here’s how we work it out:
  • Area to be painted: 45m&sup2 with two coats (we recommend two coats for the best result)
  • Tins needed: 2 x 5L and 2 x 2.5L
  • Why: Use 1 x 5L and 1 x 2.5L for the first coat; and the same again for the second

Our Coverage Calculator works this out for you – that way you know you’re buying exactly the paint you need and can use, without any waste, at the lowest price – guaranteed.

Just the job for sealing, protecting and dust-proofing concrete floors, floorsaver's two part epoxy floor paint gives concrete floors in factories, production areas, garages and warehouses a tough, long lasting and easy to clean finish. 

Use floorsaver Epoxy Floor Paint where an ordinary single pack paint won't do. Stands up to the wear and tear of an industrial environment, including forklift truck areas, or areas where vehicles are used and parked.

The right choice for garage floors as it'll stand up to hot tyres and resist automotive fluids and chemicals that ruin ordinary paint.  

It can be applied to bare concrete, sand, wood and cement screeds as well as existing well bonded paint. We recommend two coats, but if you're painting over an existing paint in a similar colour, one coat should be enough.

You might also like: 


Step 1 - Preparation:

  • On bare, reasonably clean concrete wash with floorsaver Floor Etcher. This cleans and keys the surface.
  • For greasy or previously painted floors, clean with floorsaver Cleaner & Degreaser, scraping off any loose paint, dust or dirt. Lightly sand glossy paint to dull down the shine and roughen it up.
  • New concrete should be at least 2 months old and always washed with floorsaver Floor Etcher to reduce alkalinity and to remove any weak, loose cement deposits.


Step 2 - Repairs:

  • Fill small surface holes and cracks using floorsaver Crack & Hole Filler. Use floorsaver Pourable Concrete Filler for holes 5mm-50mm deep. floorsaver Mouldable Filler can be used if you want a curved edge, such as a stair nosing, etc.


Step 3 - Application:

  • Apply at a minimum temperature of 15 ℃.
  • If the floor is still damp as a result of cleaning, it's not a problem since this is a water based epoxy. However, don't put it onto floors where there is rising damp.
  • For both the 2.5 and 5L pack sizes there is a large tin of coloured curing agent and a smaller tin of resin. Stir the contents of the large tin, then add the contents of the small resin tin.
  • Give a good stir with something wide, like a wooden batten or a paint stirrer. If you use an electric paint mixer, also scrape around the sides and bottom of the tin to make sure it's all mixed in.
  • Now it's mixed you've got 2 hours to use it before it becomes unusable. Tip it into a roller tray.
  • Use a brush around the edges and a medium pile roller for the floor.
  • Wash equipment in warm soapy water before it dries, but it's probably more practical to just throw the rollers away.

    Coats required 2. Floorsaver Epoxy Floor Paint is a two part epoxy resin supplied as a tin of resin and a tin of curing agent. Once the contents of the two tins have been mixed together, a reaction takes place which causes the product to cure. This means that one 5L tin can’t be used for 2 coats. It will cover 30m2 with one coat, but if you have for example, 15m², you can’t use half the 5L tin for the first coat, then wait for the first coat to dry before using the other half for the second coat – it will have gone off in the tin. This is why we also make a 2.5L size. This covers 15m² with one coat, so select two of these if you want to apply 2 coats to an area of up to 15m².

    You can combine 5L (30m²) and 2.5L (15m²) for areas which are not multiples of 30m² in size and more than one coat is required. For example, to cover 45m² with 2 coats use 1 x 5L and 1 x 2.5L for the first coat and same again for the second. If you have any questions please let us know.

    Usable working time ( at 15 ℃) 2 hours
    Shelf Life 12 months, if unopened, and should not be allowed to freeze


    We don't recommend:

    • Using outside - it can fade under UV, instead, use floorsaver Car Park Paint.
    • Applying to self-levelling floor screeds.
    • Applying to hard, very smooth power floated concrete where paint can‚¬„¢t sink into the surface. If in doubt, tip a cup of water over the surface and see if it soaks in or not.
    • Applying to very weak, crumbly or contaminated concrete since it may not be possible to prepare it well enough for the Epoxy Floor Paint to perform.
    • Applying to metal since it can cause rusting.

    Ask a Question
    • A: Hi Bob,

      Thank you for your interest in our product. I do believe the coating would be a good option for a decorative finish. Once fully cured there is unlikely to be any problem with water spilt on the surface, though standing/pooling water could cause the surface to discolour.

      However, any water rising from the surface below could cuase the paint to be pushed from the surface. Although it is a hard wearing epoxy product and it is likely, with a textured surface to achieve a strong bond, the rising water could still be a problem as this causes pressure below the coating.

      I am afraid i would recommend finding a DPM product to apply first. This can be an epoxy damp proof membrane or paintable style coating rather than a traditional DPM system. Provided our water based epoxy coating can be painted on top, this woud still be a very practical solution.

      Kind Regards,

    • A: We are often cautious with screeds because of the amount of different screeds and some are not directly trafficable or able to be painted. If the screed does state ok to paint and be directly trafficked and is porous, then the water based Epoxy Floor Paint will be suitable as long as clean, dry and sound.

    • A: The Epoxy Floor Paint is only suitable for internal concrete so this wouldn’t be suitable.

      If the concrete isn’t too patterned then you could use the Car Park Paint https://www.floorsaver.co.uk/collections/exterior-paint/products/car-park-paint?variant=1224564211730 however if the concrete is heavily patterned you would just need to be careful and make sure the paint doesn’t pool where its indented.

    • A: The Epoxy Floor Paint Anti Slip covers 30m2 per 5L per coat & two coats required.

      Here is a link to the web page - https://www.floorsaver.co.uk/products/epoxy-floor-paint-anti-slip?_pos=6&_sid=c78568e24&_ss=r

    • A: This coating would be suitable, provided the surface would accept a water based paint coating. There is no concern with the under floor heating, though I would leave it off or on a low and constant setting during application and for the first few days. This will allow the product to cure consistently.

      If you are able, it would be best to check with the screed manufacturer to ensure their surface can be painted.

    • A: Hi, this coating is a water based two pack epoxy, although it can be used on bitumen based surfaces, like asphalt, it is only recommended once the asphalt is at least 6 months old. This is to ensure the solvents in the dpm have 'disappeard' from the surface and the product is dry throughout. The coating would normally require a level of texture and small amount of porosity to bond well, which is unlikely in a newly laid DPM.

      I would suggest allowing the DPM to completely cure before abrading the surface to create a key, then applying this system. However, given it is a bitumen based product, it may be a good idea to speak with the manufacturer to ensure they are happy for you to coat their product with a water based epoxy and also for further clarification on timescales involved.

    • A: Hi, when using a primer you may only require one top coat to achieve a cosmetically pleasing finish but only if the surface is not particularly porous. We do however recommend 2 coats to achieve full strength and if the substrate is porous 2 coats will stop it looking patchy.  Do take a look at our data sheet as it covers preparation, application, curing times, etc which you may find helpful.

    • A: The proportions need to be very accurate or else the product may not go off or perform as it should do.  You can part mix by volume, but unless you are spot on you could run into difficulties.  It would be best to purchase 2 x 2.5L to avoid taking that risk.

    • A: We do not recommend our products going over self levelling compounds.  However, some manufacturers say that they can be painted, so it's best to speak to Sika and ask them. They may say that a two part, water based epoxy resin can be used, if this is the case then ours would fit the bill but we couldn't guarantee anything.

      The problem with self levellers is that they are generally used as base for laying carpet, wood, vinyl or tiles over, they are not usually strong enough to traffic directly, therefore if you paint them the leveller would break up taking the paint off with it.  Also, paint doesn't tend to bond that well to self levellers - sorry to be the bearer of bad news!

    • A: Rising damp can be a bit tricky so it's probably best if we have a chat about this over the phone.  When you have a minute please can you call us on 0345 450 9888 and we can take it from there? I hope to hear from you soon.
