Rubber Pond Paint
Chlorinated Rubber Pond Paint is excellent for use where good chemical resistance is needed it is widely used on artificial ponds that are made from fiberglass brick or concrete.
Chlorinated Rubber Pond Paint provides excellent elasticity so doesn’t crack when it is flexed and bent.
Is this pond paint fish safe?
All paints are harmful to aquatic organisms in its wet form however once fully cured (7days) there are no chemicals/solvents to leach out and cause harm with this coating.
It can be brushed, rolled, and sprayed.
Touch Dry 20-40 minutes
Over coat 12-24 hours
Full dry 7 days
Thinners suitable T1000 Thinners
Covers Approx. 8 square metres per litre (this does not account for the method of application, absorption of substrate or wastage)
Suitable for concrete, metal and primed fibreglass
Shelf life - 12 months from batch date
- New concrete ponds will need time to green this generally is a period of 3-5 months from when the concrete is layed.
- Mix paint well before use and check colour before use.
- Make sure substrates are suitably prepared (lightly abraded, degreased and or primed).
- When applying to pre painted substrates ensure existing paint is in good condition and lightly abraded to provide a key for the new coating to provide good intercoat adhesion.
- Temperature will affect drying times but will not prevent curing. We recommend no less than 10 degrees.
Never paint in direct sunlight, where possible use a cover to reduce the direct sunlight whilst ensuring you still have good ventilation and air flow so solvent can escape, not causing solvent entrapment.
Make sure you use a broom stick, mixer on a slow running drill or pallet knife that reaches the bottom of the can and mixing should take place for 3-5 mins to ensure all the content is properly mixed together to avoid colour and or drying problems.
Thinners required are T1000. If thinning is required when applying by a brush or roller start by gradually adding 5% but do not thin more an 10% as the paint won’t cover
As our coatings are heavily pigmented separation can easily occur and you can have colour float, for example a green paint can seem blue before mixing, this is one of the reasons mixing your paint before use is essential.
