Euroguard & Polyguard QDP by BC Paints

 

Euroguard and Polyguard QDP Paint

 

 

 

 

 

Here at BC Paints we manufacture and produce high quality coatings for all industries. We have a fully qualified paint chemist, that along with our 50 years combined experience drives the company forward with new formulas and specific products.

 

Some of our own products include Euroguard Primer Finish, a paint that we have manufactured in our Midlands based factory for over 20 years. Euroguard Primer Finish offers a one coat anti corrosive coating, with good adhesion and exterior durability qualities. With its anti corrosive pigments this coating does not require a primer. The paint is touch dry within 30 minutes.

 

Another one of our quality formulated products is Polyguard QDP, a compliant single pack solvent-based coating designed for use as a refinishing paint for commercial vehicles. Polyguard QDP is based on a urethane modified resin system which provides a strong paint film with good chemical resistance and a mirror-like gloss. Selection of high quality pigments further enhances the properties by providing improved weathering resistance and light fastness of the coating. Use of Single Polyguard QDP is not restricted to vehicle refinish. It can also be used in the industrial and ACE markets where a hard flexible glossy coating is required.

 

With these and many more products such as our new Two Pack Epoxy paint which drys in 30 minutes our range of industrial paints is always evolving. Take a look round our Paint Range Section to see just how versatile our range of paints are!

 

If you require paint on a more casual or one of basis, then perhaps our online store, TA Paints LTD will have the products to suite your needs. TA Paints hosts a massive range of paints for all types of users, from painting your garage door to re-coating your factory!

Where better to learn and showcase our products than the UK’s biggest farm and machinery show! At the show we had all of our agricultural paint range on show, our spray equipment set up and even a business card raffle for contestants to win some of our own quality equipment!

We left our stamp on the agricultural market at the event, and made some very useful contacts. If you like the sound of the show, feel free to check out the LAMMA Show website.  We’ll see you at LAMMA 2016 next year!

Painting Bare Concrete Floors with Single Pack Floor Coating

This method is Recommended for light to medium foot traffic. Two coats of paint are always recommended, the first coat primes and seals the floor and the second provides good colour build, protection and longevity of the coating.

Single Pack Concrete Floor Paints

When painting any concrete floor it is important that the moisture content of the concrete is no greater than 5%Green concrete is best left for at least two to three months before coating. There are two main factors to ensure the single pack floor coating will offer the protection & durability you require. Any floor paint will require good floor preparation before coating. If time and effort is not but into preparing the floor before coating, then no matter how good a product is, or indeed how much it costs you to buy, the coatings potential will not be met.

Preparation

With any floor coating preparation is an essential key to extend the protection and lifespan of the coating. To prepare a bare (rough) concrete floor prior to painting we always recommend a light abrasion first; this can be done either by a scarifying machine or track blasting (most effective method). This allows the paint to create a good lock and key effect with the concrete which then leads to much better adhesion. If the floor has been power floated or is generally very shiny, the floor paint will not adhere to this surface. It is recommended to track blast the concrete to remove most of the top layer prior to painting. The structure of the top layer in a power floated concrete floor is generally unstable and easy to damage this is due to one small partial size been pushed to the top. If track blasting in not an economical scenario, you can use a scarifying machine or a concentrated Acid de-scaler to etch the floor.

Final Preparation

After the floor has been abraded, we then recommend de-greasing the area, removing dust and any loose parts. If floors are heavily penetrated with any sort of contamination it is important to remove it all before coating, the most effective way is to have the floor steam cleaned. Remember this will add moisture into the floor, so time will have to be allowed for the moisture to escape. If the floor has light or no contamination just a quick mop around with our Degreasing Solvent or Acid Descaler will suffice. Again ‘preparation’ is key for a good floor coating, should any moisture or contamination be trapped in the substrate the paint will simply blister and blow off.

Application

Single Pack Floor Paint can be easily applied by brush & roller. Start to cut in the edges with a brush (use a good brush as this coating will start pulling bristles out of cheap brushes), then using our sheep simulated rollers or solvent resistant sleeves and tray, start to roll the first coat out; starting at the far end working back to the exiting door. Leave the first coat to dry for 12 hours or overnight before over coating with the second coat. If the first coat has been left for 24 hours or more before over coating then a light abrasion will be required for the second coat to adhere to the first. For the second coat simply follow the exact same instructions for the first coat.

Manufacturer’s guidelines are that any type of paint will need 7 days for the coating to reach its full properties. Obviously we know this is an unrealistic time scale for most companies or general public to not be able to use that area for such a long time, but if the coating is left for at least 24 hours this should be long enough for foot. The longer the coating is left the longer it will last!
