Typical Areas of Use
Proven since 1991 in almost every industry, typical areas of use include warehouses and showrooms, shops and factories, production areas and workshops, hospitals and schools, to name but a few.
Should extra slip resistance be required, our Flortex EP Non slip not only incorporates all the benefits of our standard product, but also contains an extremely tough Guyanian Calcined Bauxite aggregate (well surpassing the standard aggregates used in slip resistant floor paints) that will easily withstand heavy wear and tear from constant foot traffic, pallet trucks and forklifts.
Flortex EP can also be manufactured to answer bespoke needs such as Extra Fast Hardeners (Flortex EP XFH), extra chemical resistance (Flortex Chemical Coat) and/or for applications in low temperatures. Please contact Polycote technical helpline for further advice.

Please consult the technical data sheet for full technical product data on Flortex EP.
Preparation:Thorough substrate preparation is essential before applying Flortex EP.
Recommended methods are:
Powerfloated concrete – use a Vacuum Assisted Shotblaster to remove weak laitence and provide a surface key for the Flortex EP coating. If this is not possible, chemically etch with Polycote Etch IT then rinse thoroughly and allow to dry.
Loose paint or rust – remove, using a Vacuum Assisted Shotblaster, Floor Grinder or equivalent method.
Loose or friable concrete – use a Vacuum Assisted Shotblaster. If this is not possible, chemically clean with Polycoate Etch IT then rinse thoroughly and allow to dry.
Oil or grease – use Hot Compressed Air for large areas of contamination. Smaller, isolated deposits may be chemically cleaned with Polycote Degrease IT, then rinsed thoroughly and allowed to dry.
Prior to application of Flortex EP, a suitable primer should be applied. These include Polycote EP Primer, WD Primer or OT Primer, depending on the type and condition of the surface.
Please contact Polycote Technical Helpline, and prepare the surface in accordance with the appropriate primer data sheet.
Having fully prepared the substrate, stir the individual components before mixing together. Add Part ‘B’ to Part ‘A’ and thoroughly mix for at least 3 minutes. For best results use a heavy duty slow speed drill with a mixing paddle. Ensure thorough mixing as an unmixed product will result in a poor or non-cure situation.
Apply by brush, roller or squeegee, making sure that the surface is completely covered.
Particular attention should be given to doorways and other areas of high traffic. When finished, DO NOT scrape the remaining contents from the container as this will invariably include unmixed resin.
