How long does this paint take to fully cure and harden at room temperature.
I have painted loft fiber board with a thinned base coat then after 24h a single top coat. After 24 hours it feels dry but slightly soft (rubbery). How long before I can put things on it without them sticking or damaging the surface
Hello TeaMaker. The approximate curing time for this product is 7 days. I would suggest applying a 2nd full coat, as a 3 coat system is recommended for previously unpainted substrates, in order to achieve maximum durability. Thanks

2. floor will need at least 2 coats. how long I need to wait between coats?
Hello Roney. in reasonable drying conditions, The Leyland Trade Heavy Duty Floor paint will be touch dry between 2-4 hours, however it has a recoat time of 16-24 hours. The product will also require a period of around 7 days to reach a full chemical cure, essentially this means reaching full durability. Therefore it is recommended to not move heavy objects on the fresh paint until this period has elapsed. Thanks

Leyland Heavy Duty Floor Paint Slate
Would this heavy duty floor paint be suitable for wooden decking in my garden does anyone know, or is there a better product? I inherited decking that is old but sound, but which has been overpainted (or stained) so many times and is very patchy in colour and looks miserable. I want a really solid, dark grey paint to cover the variations in colour, that will hold the surface well with good colour coverage. I know the decking is outside but footfall is limited on this decking area, and if this paint is suitable for garages and warehouses, wouldn't it be OK outside too? I would buy a decking paint normally but the write ups aren't very good and it appears you have to re-paint every year as it flakes and looks awful. I want something that will look good for at least a couple of years before I need to repaint. Thanks for looking and for your advice!!
Thank you for your question Fifi2015.
The Leyland trade heavy duty floor paint in slate is really designed for internal use on a dry surface that will not be affected by damp and changes in the weather i.e. temperature and water etc. If used as the instructions on the can state we cannot guarantee the performance over a period of time. An Opaque woodstain may be the answer in your case. It is about getting the coating to soak into the wood, you tend to find decking can be hard and non porous. Thinner coats are better than thicker coats. Screwfix woodstains can be found here > http://www.screwfix.com/c/decorating/woodcare/cat850456
