How to paint wood floor?

For wood flooring, we recommend sanding twice, especially if the wood has been treated. Cleaning should be done after each round to ensure all dust and particles are removed. The first sanding can be done with a 40-grit to strip any finish and the second with a 100-grit to smooth and remove any imperfections. Once sanded, vacuumed, and cleaned, one coat of Ressource Undercoat should be applied.

  1. Since wood is a porous material, Ressource undercoat can be diluted using a 5-10% water and left to dry for 24 hours.
  2. Once dry, the first coat of Ressource Floor Paint can be applied, also using a 5-10%water dilution to increase coverage and absorption.
  3. After the first coat has dried, it can be lightly sanded with 150-grit sandpaper to remove any rogue fibers or imperfections.
  4. After the first coat has been cleaned, the second and final coat can be applied.

How to paint tile floor

When painting tile floors, it is important to increase the texture and grit to better allow the paint to adhere. After the tile has been cleaned, it should be sanded with a 40-60-grit sandpaper, and then cleaned and washed again to prepare for application:

  1. One coat of super primer should then be applied which will provide the ideal surface for the paint to adhere.
  2. One coat of Ressource Undercoat should be applied and left to dry completely.
  3. Once dried, two coats of Ressource Floor Paint can be applied. To increase coverage, the first coat can be diluted using 5% water.

How to paint concrete / cement floors

Concrete is a porous surface and requires a different technique to paint. To ensure that the floor is level and smooth, it should be sanded using a 120-grit sandpaper. The surface should then be vacuumed, washed clean, and dried.
It is important to vacuum and clean thoroughly so that no particles of concrete or sandpaper get painted on, which could affect the final finish of the floors.

  1. One coat of Ressource undercoat can be applied to the cleaned surface. To aid in the application, since concrete is porous and absorbent, the undercoat can be diluted by adding 5%-10% water.
  2. Once the undercoat has sufficiently dried, two coats of Ressource Floor Paint can be applied. If any imperfections are noticed, a light sanding between the first and second coat can be done, but make sure to vacuum/clean the surface before applying a coat of paint.
