Paving Paint

1L, 4L, 10L

White Knight Paving Paint is a hard wearing oil based concrete paint. The semi gloss finish resists scuffing and marking and is the perfect solution for refreshing tired concrete areas.

Ideal for use on concrete paths, retaining walls, pots, courtyard feature walls, verandas, patios, floors and stairs.

Features:

  • Heavy duty
  • Resists scuffing
  • Suitable for concrete surfaces
  • Semi gloss finish

Suitable Surfaces

White Knight Paving Paint is suitable for use on prepared concrete surfaces.

May be applied over surfaces previously painted with water or oil based finishes.
Do not apply over stencilled concrete.

Not suitable for areas affected by salt water or chemicals such as swimming pool surrounds.

Care & Maintenance

Most painted surfaces can be washed as often as required with water and mild detergent. This will maintain the look of a newly painted surface longer. Never use abrasive brushes or high pressure water to clean this as this may damage or remove the paint prematurely.

Long exposure to pooling water or chemicals will damage the paint so they should be removed or cleaned quickly.

Environment

  • Do not pour unwanted paint down the drain.
  • Keep unwanted paint in sealed containers for disposal via special chemical waste collections.
  • Empty paint containers should be left open in a well ventilated area to dry out. When dry, recycle steel containers via can recycling programs.
  • Disposal of empty paint containers via domestic recycling programs may differ between local authorities. Check with your local council first.

Preparation

To obtain best performance and maximum adhesion the surface must be prepared correctly before application.

General preparation

  • Allow new concrete to cure for at least 12 weeks before painting with White Knight Paving Paint.
  • Remove all loose or flaking paint and chalky material.
  • Unsound concrete should be repaired or replaced.
  • Ensure the surface is thoroughly clean, dry and free from grease, oil, dirt, moss and other contaminants. For severely stained surfaces please contact White Knight customer service on 131 686 (Australia) 0800 131 686 (New Zealand) for advice prior to painting.

SMOOTH CONCRETE (new or old, unpainted)

  • Mechanically remove any curing compound or sealer on the surface. Remove any curing compound or sealer on the surface.
  • Degrease the surface to remove grease and other stains using a conventional concrete degreaser.
  • Ensure the surface is thoroughly clean, dry and free from grease, oil, dirt, moss and other contaminants.
  • Smooth concrete must be etched before painting to achieve maximum adhesion. The etching process will slightly roughen the surface by removing the sheen. Etch surface with White Knight Concrete Etcher following label instructions.
  • After etching it is essential to remove all loose residues before painting. This can be done by thorough scrubbing with a stiff bristle broom or by water blasting.
  • Scrubbing must be followed by thorough rinsing with a strong jet of water from a garden hose before the surface dries.
  • Check the etching has slightly roughened the surface and created porosity. It should feel like rough sandpaper - if not, repeat the etching process.
  • Test for loose residues with adhesive tape. If cement or loose material is picked up on the tape, repeat the cleaning process.
  • If loose residues persist call White Knight customer service on 131 686 (Australia) and 0800 131 686 (New Zealand) for advice.
  • The concrete must be allowed to dry completely before painting. Any water trapped inside the concrete will eventually rise to the surface and cause the coating to blister and peel. When the surface appears dry allow additional 24 hours of fine weather for trapped water to escape holes and crevices.

ROUGH CONCRETE (new, old or previously painted)

  • Mechanically remove any curing compound or sealer on the surface.
  • Remove all loose and flaking paint.
  • Sand a glossy surface to improve adhesion.
  • Degrease the surface to remove grease and other stains using a conventional concrete degreaser.
  • Clean surface with a strong detergent. Ensure the surface is thoroughly free from grease, oil, dirt, moss and other contaminants.
  • Use a stiff bristled broom to remove sand, loose materials and other contaminants and then sweep the surface clean.
  • Wash surface thoroughly with water.
  • Allow to dry completely. Any water trapped inside the concrete will eventually rise to the surface and cause the coating to blister and peel. When the surface appears dry allow additional 24 hours of fine weather for trapped water to escape holes and crevices.

PAINTED CONCRETE

  • Mechanically remove any curing compound or sealer on the surface.
  •  Remove all loose and flaking paint.
  • Sand a glossy surface to improve adhesion.
  • Degrease the surface to remove grease and other stains using a conventional concrete degreaser.
  • Clean surface with a strong detergent. Ensure the surface is thoroughly free from grease, oil, dirt, moss and other contaminants.
  • Wash surface thoroughly with water.
  • Allow to dry completely. Any water trapped inside the concrete will eventually rise to the surface and cause the coating to blister and peel. When the surface appears dry allow additional 24 hours of fine weather for trapped water to escape holes and crevices.
  • Before painting create a test area to ensure compatibility with the old coating. After 24 hours of drying, check for lifting of old paint or poor adhesion. If problems are observed total removal of the old paint is required.

Application

  1. Stir thoroughly with a broad flat stirrer in a circular lifting motion for at least 5 minutes before use and continue to stir at regular intervals during application.
  2. If additional slip resistance is required add White Knight Pave and Deck Grip to the paint before application following label instructions.
  3. On smooth and unpainted concrete, thin the first coat with 10 - 15% turps to aid penetration and adhesion.
  4. Apply 2 coats by brush, roller or spray gun.

Do not use at temperatures below 10°C or above 30°C.

In hot weather the paint will dry too quickly and cause cracking and blisters.

In cold weather the paint will dry too slowly and not cure or harden.

 

Coverage

Approximately 14m² per litre, depending on the porosity of the surface.

Drying

Touch dry in 30 minutes. Re-coat after 2 hours. Light traffic after 6 hours. Allow 2 days of fine weather for painted surface to dry and cure before subjecting to heavy traffic.

Drying will be slower in cold or humid conditions, in the absence of ventilation or where heavy film builds are applied. 

Clean Up

Clean brushes and equipment with mineral turps immediately after use.

Hints and Tips
  • Preparing your surface properly will ensure the finish is long lasting and durable.
  • Don't be tempted to apply the paint thickly, a single thick coat may have problems with drying, adhesion and will reduce durability.
  • Take accurate measurements of the area that you wish to paint and calculate the amount of paint you require.
  • If concrete is new or smooth, concrete etching is essential for maximum adhesion. Etch the surface with White Knight Concrete Etcher, an environmentally friendly and safe alternative to traditional acid etchers.
  • To remove stains and grease, degrease using a conventional concrete degreaser.
  • If additional slip resistance is required add White Knight Pave and Deck Grip to the paint prior to application.
  • Additional slip resistance is recommended on sloping or steep exterior surfaces.
  • Always start in the farthest corner of the area to be painted and work back towards the entry point.
  • Choose your colours carefully as lighting inside homes and retail stores can make colour samples look different compared to a fully painted area.
  • Use darker colours to create a border.
  • Curing compounds or sealants applied over concrete can adversely affect adhesion.
  • The service life of paint coatings on concrete surfaces can be adversely affected by factors not evident at the time of painting, such as salts within the concrete, rising moisture and the condition of the concrete. All these factors can shorten the life of the paint coating, particularly in high water areas.
