Coo-Var Low Odour Line Marking Paint is a versatile, spirit-based coating. You can apply it to various surfaces, such as asphalt, sealed concrete, tarmac, wood, and more. It is ideal for marking roads, car parks, playgrounds, sports grounds, and for coating industrial floors in factories, warehouses, and more. It is robust and long-lasting, offering professional standard demarcation and protecting floors in demanding areas.
This acrylic paint is easy to apply using a brush or a roller. It cures quickly, so it is perfect for areas where fast drying is a priority so that you can prepare surfaces with minimal downtime. It is dry to the touch within 30 minutes and fully hardened in just four hours. Coo-Var line marking paint comes in 2.5-litre or 5-litre containers and offers exceptional coverage, with an estimate of 10m² per litre.
This line marking paint is available in bright, vibrant colours, including white, yellow, red, and black. It is highly visible ideal for demarcating instructions, colour coded areas, warnings, and more. This line marking paint is highly safe to use due to its low odour formula, and the matte finish offers anti-slip properties in busy and heavy trafficked areas.
DESCRIPTION: A quick drying solvent based linemarking paint based on durable resins and low odour solvents. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
RECOMMENDED USE: A quick drying line marking paint which can be applied directly to concrete, tarmac and wood. For outside use to mark/segregate specific areas.
AVAILABILITY: 2.5 litre, 5 litre
COLOUR: White, Yellow, Red and Black.
TYPICAL S.G. (SPECIFIC GRAVITY): 1.05 to 1.15 @ 20 °C
VOLUME SOLIDS: 37
WET FILM THICKNESS W.F.T: 100 microns
DRY FILM THICKNESS D.F.T: 35-40 microns
EXPECTED SPREADING RATE: 10 sq.m / litre. 35 - 40 micron d.f.t. (based on application by brush or roller). The practical spreading rate may be lower as this depends on factors such as the porosity and roughness of the surface to be painted and material losses during application.
TYPICAL VISCOSITY: 8 Poise @ 25 °C
FLASH POINT: 36 approx °C (closed cup)
DRYING TIME: @ RECOMMENDED D.F.T: Touch dry 1 hour hour @ 20 °C / Hard dry 4 hours @ 20 °C. Low temperature and high humidity will adversely affect application, drying and performance of any coating.
MINIMUM OVERCOATING TIME: Minimum 4 to 6 hours
VOC CONTENT: max 500g / litre. VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds) contribute to atmospheric pollution
APPLICATION DETAILS: Method - brush or roller. Thinner - do no thin. Nozzle size - 15-18mils. Cleaning solvent - Thinners 18 or LO white spirit. Recoat interval - Minimum 4 to 6 hours.
SURFACE PREPARATION: All surfaces should be clean, dry, sound and free from contaminants. Concrete - power floated, granolithic and smooth surfaces should be roughened first to provide a good "key" for the paint. This can be done mechanically by abrading or blasting, or chemically using Coo-Var Acid Etch. These processes will have the advantage in addition to preparing the surface of also removing dirt and laitance. New concrete must be allowed to cure thoroughly which can take up to 3 months. Tarmac - new tarmac needs several months to weather before painting. Very porous surfaces should be sealed with an acrylic primer sealer before applying line marking paint. Other surfaces have to be prepared and primed with the suitable primer for that substrate. Existing painted surfaces - Surfaces should be cleaned, degreased and sanded to ensure an adequate "key" is produced. Remove all loose and flaking material and treat bare areas as new substrate and prepare accordingly.
MIXING INSTRUCTIONS: Mix well before use.
APPLICATION CONDITIONS: As dictated by normal good painting practice. In confined spaces, provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.
PRECEDING COAT: Coo-Var Acrylic Primer Sealer if the surface is very porous.
SUBSEQUENT COAT: Additional coats of Coo-Var L.O Line marking Paint.
REMARKS: PTV Results 63 Dry – Low Risk, 42 Wet – Low Risk. These products have been independently tested under laboratory conditions. A site assessment is an important component in determining the slip risk of any given floor; the environment, contamination substances, types of footwear and likely pedestrian behaviour can all affect the actual figures achieved during application. An onsite verification may be necessary to determine actual values.
