The slip resistance of a floor surface can vary as a Pagelt of the installation process, conditions at the time of application and subsequent traffic. Inappropriate cleaning or maintenance can adversely affect the performance. For further advice on potential wet areas please consult RSL.
The following figures are obtained from laboratory tests and our experience with this product:
- Abrasion Resistance (Method BS8204 /ASTM D4060): Loss = 79 micrograms

- Flexural Strength: n/a
- Tensile Strength: n/a
- VOC: 440g/l – Calculation based on a full mixed unit
- Life Expectancy: 4 years plus – Subjected to Industrial Traffic – Page terms and conditions will apply
Prime : Pageseal
WB Clear System : Pagetile
Surface Seal : N/A
New Floors: New concrete must be clean, sound, dry and fully cured and surface laitence removed, preferably by shot blasting, mechanical abrasion or chemical etching. Moisture content should be checked prior to application. Do not apply to substrates with moisture readings of 75 % RH or above. If substrates do have higher moisture levels. Prime the substrate with Page Dampshield (number of coats dependent on moisture content ). Existing Floors: Remove all dirt, oil, grease or other surface contaminants, preferably by shot blasting, scarification or mechanical planing, Fats, oils or greases must be removed by mechanical abrasion and detergent washing. Porous substrates such as concrete should be primed with Pageseal WB Clear Primer. Pageprime should be used where a thicker primer coat is required for greater film thickness.
The ambient temperatures of the areas should not be allowed to fall below 10oC throughout the application and the curing period, as this could have an adverse effect on the appearance and colour of the system. Surface temperature must be above 5oC.
Where possible it is recommended that the application area is heat- ed to a minimum temperature of 15oC to allow the ambient and substrate temperature to stabilise prior to installation.
Mixing: Pre-mix the base component to a uniform colour then mix the entire contents of the base with the hardener. If a separate mixing bucket is being used mix thoroughly ensuring all contents of both components are removed from the buckets supplied. Mix using a slow speed electric mixer for approximately two minutes or until the two components have fully combined.
The mixed unit should be applied immediately by roller or brush with a consistent procedure. Floor areas should be cross-rolled to ensure even application and to minimise roller marks. Coverage rates will depend on porosity of the substrate. Results from CAPSIS independent testing

Page recommend that Pagetile should be cleaned with a regular industrial cleaning regime with a floor scrubber utilising Industrial Floor Cleaner or similar with dirty water being removed. Isolated localised cleaning can be carrried out using Tyre Mark Remover, Fats and Grease Remover & Oil Remover. All surfaces should be thoroughly rinsed with clean water after the use of chemical cleaners.
Health and Safety
Pagetile is formulated from materials designed to achieve the highest level of performance as safely as possible. However, specific components require prop- er handling and suitable equipment, this information is given in the relevant safety data sheets. In all cases, spillages or skin contamination should be cleaned as soon as practically possible, by dry wiping of the affected area, and thorough washing with soap and water.
