Packaging/Package Size

  • Standard
    5 kg, 10 kg plastic combi-packaging
  • ColorExpress
    5 kg, 10 kg plastic combi-packaging


  • Standard:
    10 kg container: Kieselgrau (Gravel Grey), Betongrau (Concrete Grey), Mittelgrau (Medium Grey).
    5 kg container: Kieselgrau (Gravel Grey), Betongrau (Concrete Grey).
    Special colours available on request.
  • ColorExpress:
    Over 25,000 shades are available in the ColorExpress stations. Exclusive colouring is possible due to colour shades of the FloorColor plus collection. Depending on the shade, base 1, base 2 or base 3 can be mixed via ColorExpress stations.
    Slight discolouration and chalking effects may occur with weathering and UV light exposure. The colourants in e.g. coffee, red wine or leaves (organic dyestuffs) and various chemicals, e.g. disinfectants, acids, etc., may cause discolouration. Scratch marks may appear on the surface due to continued rubbing/sliding. Proper functioning of the coating will not be affected by these changes.

Gloss Level



Keep in a cool, dry and frost-free place. Shelf life of the original, tightly closed packaging: Minimum
2 years. If temperatures are low, the material should be stored at 20 °C before application.

Suitable Substrates

All interior mineral substrates (e.g. concrete, cement-based, anhydride and magnesite screed) and hard asphalt screed. The substrate must be sound, dimensionally stable, solid, free from all materials that may prevent good adhesion, e.g. loose/brittle materials, dust, oils, fats/greases or abraded rubber contamination (scuff/skid marks). Cementitious flow mortars, ameliorated with synthetic resin, must be checked for compatibility by trial application, if necessary. The adhesive tensile (pull-off) strength of substrates must be 1.5 N/mm2. Substrates must have achieved their equilibrium humidity:
Concrete and cement-based composition floor (screed): max. 5% by weight
Anhydrite screed: max. 1 % by weight
Magnesite screed: 2 – 4 % by weight
Xylolithe (Magnesium Oxychloride) screed: 4 – 8 % by weight
Hard asphalt screeds must correspond to hardness class IC 15 and should not warp on the given temperature and mechanical load conditions.

Substrate Preparation

Prepare the substrate by suitable means, e.g. grit blasting (shot peening) or milling,  in order to fulfil the above mentioned requirements.

Unsound, highly soiled surfaces (e.g. with oils, fats/greases, rubber abrasion), chalking or vitreous cement laitance surfaces must be prepared intensively by mechanical means with shot/grit blasting or similar equipment. Small surfaces may be treated manually with special tools like cleaning-rod, needle pistol, etc. Especially the tracks on used garage floors are to be treated very thoroughly. Oil stains must be removed with suitable degreasing agent.

Hard asphalt screeds: After having completed with preparation the aggregate should be visible for at least 75%.
One-component and loose, unsound two-component coatings must always be removed.
Vitreous surfaces and existing sound, rigid two-component coatings must be cleaned and slightly roughened or flattened with blasting device or should be primed with Disbon 481 EP-Uniprimer.
Fill spallings and defects on the substrate flush with the surface using Disbocret
® PCC Mortars or Disboxid EP Mortars.

Preparation of Material

Stir the base material, then add the hardener and stir intensively with a low-speed electric paint agitator (max. 400 rpm), until a homogenous, streak-free colour shade is achieved. Pour the mixture into another container and continue stirring.

Mixing Ratio

Base material (component A) : hardener (component B) = 84 : 16 parts by weight

Method of Application

The material is applicable by paint brush, roller or spraying equipment (airless, without filter, min. 50 bar, nozzle 0.015 – 0.017 inch, spray angle 45°, subsequently to be treated with a roller).

Surface Coating System

Priming Coat
New, slightly absorbent mineral substrates and hard asphalt screeds may be primed with Disbopox 442 GaragenSiegel, diluted 5 -10 % with tap (potable) water.
Optimum adhesion on mineral substrates is achievable with a priming coat of Disbopox 443
EP Impregnation. The priming coat should always be intensively applied by sealer brush.

Even, semi-rough mineral substrates:
Prepare a mixture of
Disbopox 442 GaragenSiegel: 1 part by weight
Disboxid 942 Mischquartz (quartz sand): 1 part by weight
Pour the scratch filler compound onto the primed surface, spread evenly using smoothing trowel, then draw off all excessive material to achieve a layer thickness in particle size of the aggregate:Max. 2 mm.
Strew/cover the completed surface with a surplus of quartz sand Disboxid 942.

Please Note: Burrs and a higher surface unevenness may be noticeable, even after having treated/covered with quartz sand. The surface should be grinded, if necessary.

Apply intermediate and finishing coats always undiluted. Dilute the material for intermediate coat with 5 % of tap water, when the surface has been strewn with quartz sand. An extreme colour contrast or highly intensive colours, e.g. tinted via ColorExpress base 3, may require the application of a 3rd coat, provided that a high-quality visual appearance is desired.

Surface Design/Treatment with Color-Chips
Strew Disboxid 948 Color-Chips into the freshly applied coating and seal the dried surface with Disbopur 458 PU-AquaSiegel for smooth aspect or add 3 % by weight of Disbon 947 SlideStop Fine for anti-slip effect.

The exact rate of consumption is best established by a trial application on site. Consumption of finishing sealer coat on sand-treated coatings may vary depending on temperature, method of application, tools and quatz sand treatment.


At 20 °C and 60% relative humidity approx.  90 minutes. Higher temperatures shorten and lower temperatures extend the pot life.
Note: Avoid the application of excessively thick layers for each coat (additional consumption). Ventilate well during drying and hardening phase.

Application Conditions

Material, Atmospheric, and Substrate Temperature
must remain at a min. of 10 °C and max. 30 °C during application and drying. Relative humidity must not exceed 80 %. Substrate temperature should always be min. 3 °C above the dew point temperature.

Waiting Time

The waiting time between work steps is minimum 16 hrs and max. 48 hours at 20 °C. If waiting times are longer, the surface of the preceding coat must be roughened (sanded). Higher temperatures shorten and lower temperatures extend the given time period.

Drying/Drying Time

At 20 °C and 60 % relative humidity walkable after approx. 1 day. Ready for mechanical loads after approx. 3 days. Completely hardened after approx. 7 days.
Lower temperatures extend the drying time. During the drying process (approx. 24 hours at 20 °C), the coat should be protected against moisture/humidity to avoid surface failures and loss of adhesion.

Tool Cleaning

Immediately after use or during longer breaks with water or warm soapy water.
