Semi-Permanent Floor Paints
Semi-Permanent Floor Paint is a one-coat, pigmented paint for non-porous floors. It is quick-drying and hardwearing but can be easily removed after use with Mylands semi-permanent floor wash solution.
Both the paint and remover are water-based.
If Studio time is short, it can be overcoated with different colours for the next show. (This may result in a small gloss increase due to gloss migration.) The resulting multi-coat system can then be easily removed (with Mylands semi-permanent floor wash).
Semi-permanent floor paint is not immediately affected by water spillage; it is water soak resistant for 16 to 24 hours.l
The floor paint is available in three levels of gloss:
a) High Gloss sheen = 70 – 75%
b) Semi-gloss sheen = 30 – 40%
c) Matt sheen = 5 – 10%
Coverage is 10 to 15 metres square per litre.
Drying time is 1 to 3 hours depending on the thickness of the film applied and the temperature and humidity of the studio. Air conditioning will help speed up the drying time.
Standard pack time is ten litres and can be matched to most colour ranges
(24 hours notice needed) eg
a) BBC Colour range
b) Mylands 9000 range
c) British Standards ranges
d) RAL Colours
e) Special matches made to order
All Semi-Permanent floor paint colours can be intermixed to produce different colours and gloss levels.
Apply paint in as thin a film as possible while still giving sufficient opacity. The paint is supplied ready for use and should not be thinned, except for decorative effect.
Wash rollers and brushes with water before paint has dried.
If blowers are used to speed drying, direct airflow parallel with floor, not down onto it. Do not apply to porous surfaces as permanent staining from pigments can result.
