    • Hi Trevor, our experts are asking for more information about the surface before they can advise you accurately. Can you please describe what exactly you are wanting to seal in more detail?

    Do you agree?

    • Hi Ronald, you can use Plascon Floor Paint to paint your garage floor. Our Floor Paint is a durable, hardwearing and a fashionable coating for domestic concrete surfaces such as floors, patios, driveways, pathways and garages.

      Remove any wax or water-based curing agents used to aid curing of the concrete after casting. Degrease the surface using Plascon Aquasolv Degreaser (GR 1). Rinse thoroughly with clean water. Allow to dry for at least 48 hours until totally dry.

      For all smooth surfaces, particularly steel floated concrete, apply one coat of Plascon Concrete Floor Prep (FCS 1). Allow the surface to dry for 8 hours before applying Plascon Floor Paint (FPT Range). Apply two coats to the correctly prepared and sealed surface for maximum durability. Allow at least 2 hour drying time @ 23 °C between coats. Allow light traffic after 16hrs drying and heavy traffic after 72 hours of drying @ 23°C. Drying times must be extended in cold, damp or humid conditions.

    • Hi Josh, thanks for getting in touch.

      Please kindly advise what kind of tiles you are wanting to clean and seal (e.g. floor, roof, bathroom etc.) and whether or not they are currently painted, and if so, with what. The more info we have about the surface the better we can assist you!
