Tile & Laminate Paint

An interior high performance coating designed to give a hard wearing high gloss finish when painting tiles and laminates. Also suitable for white goods, fridges and washing machines.

Don't replace it, repaint! Scuff and water-resistant, Flood Tile & Laminate Paint can even be used on shower wall tiles. It is an easy to use formulation combining anti-mould inhibitors with the latest polymers which assist the paint to adhere to smooth gloss slick surfaces. No primer or undercoat needed. Just paint straight on to clean, dry tiles or laminates. It is touch dry in 4 hours but all surfaces should be left to harden for 3-4 days. Rejuvenate old tired looking surfaces. Save the cost of renovating.

Available in 1 and 2 litre cans in 50 decorator colours.

Follow the easy 3-Step Application System

This product will only perform to its maximum when the steps below are followed.

STEP 1 Use Flood Tile & Laminate Cleaner to remove grime, grease, soap residue, and any other contaminates. Rinse thoroughly with clean water. Once dry, lightly sand with a medium sanding block; remove residue with a damp cloth.

STEP 2 If the surface has previously shown signs of mould, treat the area with Flood Mould Action prior to the application of Tile & Laminate Paint.

STEP 3 After stirring thoroughly with a wide blade stirrer, apply the first coat of Flood Tile & Laminate Paint with a mohair roller (preferred method) or a good quality brush.

Be sure to wash a new mohair roller thoroughly before use as this will remove any excess particles which may inhibit a smooth finish. Allow the roller to dry.

Do not over brush the Tile & Laminate Paint – use even strokes in one direction, then the other (brushing is only recommended for cutting in).

Using a mohair roller, apply a liberal coat of the Tile & Laminate Paint to the clean dry surface and wait for just 5 minutes before applying the second and final coat. This is what is known as a wet-on-wet system and will save you time. If painting a large area do this in stages so as not to leave the first coat more than 5 minutes before applying the second.

Curing Time

After the second wet on wet coat has been applied, allow paint to fully cure before applying further coats to prevent crazing. Curing time can vary from 1 week in warm conditions to 3 weeks in cold or humid conditions. Test a small area prior to recoating to ensure paint is fully cured.

The product will be touch dry in 4 hours at 25°C; drying will be slower in cold or humid conditions or in the absence of natural ventilation.

The product will achieve maximum hardness after 3 days at the drying temperature mentioned above. We recommend this is the minimum curing period before the shower area is used.

*Not recommended for floors or bench tops.


USE FLOOD TILE & LAMINATE CLEANER TO THOROUGHLY CLEAN SURFACES BEFORE PAINTING

For thorough cleaning apply this product using an inert scouring pad which will remove all contaminants. Rinse surface thoroughly with fresh clean water.If the surface is in poor condition repeat this process.
