Protectakote is a unique, advanced formula polyurethane anti-slip paint, incorporating rubber granules to give a totally flexible anti-slip (non-slip) finish that will not flake, chip or peel. With no mixing or blending required, it can be easily applied to almost any surface including metal, concrete, wood, fibreglass, plastic and rubber leaving an attractive textured anti-slip finish that is resistant to impacts.
A 4 Litre tin will cover approximately 6 sq metres (15 sq feet) with the recommended two coats.
Please note that for high wear areas, areas exposed to salt water or areas that are fully exposed to sunlight we recommend using the UVR version of Protectakote for maximum longevity.
To get an even finish with Protectakote it should be applied with a textured roller.
Sound painted surfaces should be lightly abraded to remove the gloss, clean with CIF household cream cleaner, rinsed and allowed to dry completely.
Ceramic Tiles, Marble, Terrazo, Glass
Surface should be thoroughly cleaned & rinsed to leave a water break free surface. Protectakote Clear Primer Treatment applied & overcoated after approx 1 hour.
Abrade to bright fresh metal and prime with Protectakote Clear Primer, Protectakote 2K or for areas where there is no risk of water pooling Metcote, application should be completed within 30 minutes of abrading. For high wear areas we strongly recommend using Protectakote 2K.
Scour with an alkaline detergent or pre-cleaner to remove all oil and create a water break free surface, lightly abrade and solvent wipe with Xylene and then prime within 3 hours of abrasion with a suitable etch primer such as Protectakote 2K for high wear applications or clear primer treatment.
New concrete should be minimum of 6-8 weeks old, surface should be clean & dry, first coat diluted 10% with Xylene. Concrete subject to rising damp or in high wear areas should be primed with Duraprime first. Smooth, shiny concrete (power floated) requires etching or abrading first. Any crumbly surface layer will have to be removed first with a stiff broom and concrete etch cleaner.
Abrade the surface to remove all gloss, clean with CIF cream cleaner, rinse and allow to dry.
Well weathered fibreglass just needs cleaning.
Un-primed: Abrade the surface prior to painting, ensuring any loose rust is removed, surface should be cleaned with Xylene and allowed to dry prior to painting.
Primed: Protectakote adheres well to primed metal such as red oxide.
Galvanised: Use Protectakote Clear Primer Treatment prior to applying Protectakote. Follow instructions
Non ferrous metal
Follow Protectakote Clear Primer Treatment instructions prior to overpainting with Protecta-Kote.
Plastic (Not Polyethylene)
Lightly abrade the surface. Clean with Cif, rinse with clean water and allow to dry.
Abrade the surface, clean with Cif, rinse with clean water and allow to dry.
Lightly abrade to fresh wood, clean with Xylene dampened cloth, allow to dry thoroughly. With treated timber such as decking the first coat should be diluted by 10% with Xylene.
Marine Ply: Treat as Timber. Class 1 and 2 ply should be sealed with dilute PVA and allowed to dry completely before application. Where a waterproof barrier is required Duraprime can be used.
