Ronseal Perfect Finish Diamond Hard Floor Paint

Why spend longer than you have to painting your floors? Our Perfect Finish Pad helps you get the job done fast. In fact 5 x faster than using a brush.
And our Diamond Hard Floor Paint is tough, because we know the knocks, spills and scrapes floors have to put up with.

Before You Start

Make sure the room is above 10°c. Take your furniture out and for ventilation open your doors and windows. 

Prep - Concrete & Stone floors
Bare: Make sure newly laid concrete has been left out to dry for a month before painting it. This gives it time to set. Wire brush the floor and remove any dust. Concrete floors can react with the paint and cause it to crack and blister. To stop this from happening, you'll need to seal your floor with a Stabilising Solution. Or, just pour some of the paint into a container and dilute with 10% water. Then put onto your floor with a brush or roller. Leave to dry before painting over. 
Previously Painted: To help the paint stick, wire brush the floor. Then wipe with white spirit and leave to dry before painting.

Prep – Wooden Floors
Start by sanding your floor, this will give the wood an even finish and help the paint to stick. The easiest way to do this is with a floor sander. Use 120 grit sandpaper and go along the length of the boards. Make sure you wear a face mask, because it creates a lot of dust. Let the dust settle. Then give it a vacuum and wipe down with white spirit. If you notice any holes or imperfections fill them in with our Multi-Purpose Wood Filler. Seal any knots with our Knot Block Wood Primer & Undercoat
Previously Painted: Give the floor a good sand down, then wipe with white spirit and leave to dry before painting. 

Using Your Paint & Pad

1. You'll find the Perfect Finish Pad in the tray on the top of this tub. Before you take it out, make sure there's a dust sheet down. Some of the paint may be on the bottom of this tray. Put the pad and pole together as shown on the leaflet. Give the pad a quick vacuum to get rid of any loose bits (you don't want them getting into your paint.)

2. Give the paint a really good stir and test the colour on a small area to check you're happy with it before painting your entire floor. 

3. Using the pad, start in the corner furthest from the door. You don't want to paint yourself into a corner! If you're painting a wooden floor work along the length of 2 boards at a time. 

4. You'll need 3 coats to give you the best protection, leaving 4-6 hours between each coat. Before the 3rd coat, give the floor a light sand using 240 grit sandpaper (don't use a floor sander for this bit). Wipe down with a damp cloth. Then put the third coat on. 

5. You'll be able to walk over it in 4-6 hours. Wait 4-6 hours before putting your furniture back and be careful not to scrape your floor. After 72 hours it'll be tough enough to stand up to just about anything. 

6. If you get any paint on yourself wash it off with warm, soapy water.
