COAT Floor Paint is a fully water-based product that can be purchased online in a handful of colours. It’s an eggshell finish, meaning the sheen level is roughly 10%, however this can vary slightly depending on colour.
If your floor has been previously painted with an oil-based product, or you’re going over a tricky material like ceramic tiles, then you should first apply an adhesion primer. This will help prevent your COAT Floor Paint from chipping over time.
Touch dry in around 2 hours, recoat in 4 hours, and you should leave roughly 24 hours before walking on a freshly painted floor.
My COAT Floor Paint Review
As a Painter and Decorator, I look at COAT as one of the best designer brands on the market. I love all their products and recommend them to my clients on a regular basis. At the time of writing this review, COAT Floor Paint is relatively new. I have used it twice now, and I must say, I think it’s brilliant.
I know COAT recommend using an adhesion primer when painting over tricky surfaces, but from what I’ve seen, the paint has fantastic adhesion on its own. COAT Floor Paint has a thick and creamy consistency. You can dilute it slightly and it still has fantastic opacity. You’ll never need more than two coats.
Even without diluting it, COAT Floor Paint flows beautifully. One of the reasons I like this paint so much is you can use it on other trim like skirting boards, architraves, and doors. You’d struggle to achieve a good finish on interior trim with comparable products, but COAT looks brilliant. It’s easy to keep a wet edge and there are no stringy brush marks. This makes the paint very forgiving.
The most impressive quality is the overall finish. COAT Floor Paint is very pigment heavy, so the finish is rich and luxurious. I have never really noticed a quality like that in a floor paint, so COAT is genuinely impressive.
The durability is bob on too. I normally wait a couple of days after painting a floor before putting furniture back into a room. Even then, I’m always a little bit paranoid about damaging the floor. I know I’ve only used COAT Floor Paint a couple of times, but it seems solid. I’ve even tried scratching at a test patch with my van key, and it doesn’t shift. Click here for more info.
