All our paints are water based, eco friendly and comply with the latest EU environmental legislation regarding the VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) content of paints. Our finishes are all low in odour and classified as either low or minimal VOC. These water based paints can be applied to surfaces previously painted in an oil based finish. However, surfaces painted in oil based paint require a minimum of two weeks drying time before water based paint is applied on top. Farrow & Ball oil based paint finishes are no longer available.
The following guidelines apply to the Floor Paint finish, suitable for interior wood or concrete floors.
Ensure the floor surface is sound, clean, dry and free from dirt, grease and any other contamination. For wood floors sand back sharp edges and any raised grain.
For bare wood floors:
Fill any open joins and cracks with a dedicated non flexible wood filler.
Sand to a smooth finish, vacuum and wipe down with a damp cloth.
Allow the wood to dry, patch prime any resinous knots with Farrow & Ball Knot & Resin Blocking Primer followed by one full coat of Farrow & Ball Wood Floor Primer & Undercoat to seal.
For painted wood floors:
Areas of old paint that have peeled or blistered need to be removed as per the instructions for bare wood floors.
As much of the previous paint as possible should be removed.
Apply one full coat of Farrow & Ball Wood Floor Primer & Undercoat to seal.
For varnished floors:
Ensure that all varnish is removed and follow the instructions for bare wood.
For waxed or polished floors:
May not accept Floor Paint, contact Farrow & Ball Customer Services for more guidance.
For new concrete floors:
Should be left for at least three months before painting.
For painted concrete floors:
Remove any surface debris and clean.
Rub down any areas that have peeled or blistered to achieve a good ‘key’.
