'How to' Guide: Concrete Floor

Preparation work
When applying a coating to new or existing concrete preparation is very important! Shieldcoat Floorshield system is a very hard wearing acrylic coating system designed for coating new or existing broom finished or trowel finished concrete and ceramic tiles. The first thing you will have to do is, thoroughly clean your concrete or tile surface that you intend to coat. You can do this with Shieldcoat Mouldshield C diluted 5:1 with water, apply with a soft broom and wash clean with at least a 3000 P.S.I. water blaster, removing all residue of Mouldshield C. Allow to dry preferably overnight. If the concrete or tiles need repairing due to cracking use Shieldcoat Stencilshield Slab Repair that comes in a natural concrete colour.

Finish coatings
Once repairs on your concrete or tiled floor is dry, apply one coat of Shieldcoat Floorshield clear or coloured using a long nap roller. Allow at least 12 hours to dry then apply a second coat of Shieldcoat Floorshield.

Important Information
If you are DIY make sure that you read all application instructions thoroughly. Personal safety is important so, be sure to wear a OHS equipment when carrying out coating work.

Final word
After 3-5 days your newly coated concrete or tiled floor should be ready to use.
