HIGH GLOSS FLOOR POLYURETHANE SOLVENT-BASED DK-400™
DK-400 Solvent Based is the best overall floor sealer. Protect your concrete floor, garage, warehouse, etc. It's normally sold in 'clear' but it can be tinted. Creates a High Gloss finish, and because it's Solvent Based, it WILL enhance the color of the concrete, similar to when you get it wet with water. If you prefer a sealer that won't darken the concrete, then you should consider the Water Based Version of this DK-400, available in Satin (sold here) or Gloss (sold here).
SureCrete’s Clear DK-400 and Pigmentable ColorTec-400 is a High Gloss Polyurethane that can be pigmented, and is a high-quality, durable color concrete coating for concrete surfaces such as warehouses where high traffic protection is needed. Manufactured with high-quality raw materials and UV stable pigments, our solvent colored polyurethane is a builder and contractors preferred concrete coating.
Available in clear, or pigmented to you color choice. (Solvent-Based in Clear offers good color enhancing of the concrete surface)
Mix ratio 4:1.
Coverage: 300-400 sq. ft. @ 5 mil wet (@3 mil dry). Can be applied over an epoxy to create a more durable top-coat, or applied as a coating on bare concrete, (can be applied as a stand-alone single coating, or for added durability apply two coats) Make sure you get at least 300 sq. ft. per gallon of coverage, or you risk applying it too thick. Also, make sure you don't get more than 400 sq. ft. per gallon, or you risk applying it too thinly!
Dura-Kote solvent based gloss colored floor polyurethane coating is a 2 component 51% solids, acrylic aliphatic polyurethane. It is designed as a non-yellowing thin mil color coating for interior concrete, cement based overlays, or as a top finish coat on epoxy systems. This high performance pigmented top coat generates the premier balance of strength, added UV stability, flexibility, chemical and scratch resistance that is both user-friendly and extremely durable. Dura-Kote
Colored Polyurethane Floor Coating Solvent Based is ideally suited for both commercial and residential settings: aircraft hangars, clean room floors, manufacturing facilities, warehouses, bars, clubs, retail stores, automotive showrooms, residential interiors, garage floors, stadiums, or any high traffic area where an exceedingly resilient floor is desired.
Selecting a colored polyurethane floor coating as a concrete sealer for interior applications can sometimes be a tricky proposition, especially when it needs to have a very hard and scratch resistant surface that needs to hold up for a very long time and yet still be very simple to clean and maintain. Dura-Kote Pigmented Polyurethane SB makes for a great combination of a durable surface with a solid colored coating. Typically this can only be achieved by utilizing a colored epoxy coating followed by a clear solvent based polyurethane top coating, but this system is now simplified substantially with SureCrete’s colored solvent-based polyurethane floor coating, that is not only easy to apply, but also readily accessible. Through the use of SureCrete’s patented tinting stations, these sealers can be made to order in the color of your choosing from an extremely large color palette in a matter of minutes, ready to be applied when you’re ready to work, whether that be in your own personal home or on a commercial job site, Surecrete’s indoor solvent-based colored polyurethane floor paint is right for you.

HOW TO APPLY SURECRETE DURA-KOTE COLORED POLYURETHANE FLOOR COATING SB.
- Any surface that is about to be sealed needs to be completely cured, clean and free of all contaminants, and fully profiled and etched before applying colored polyurethane floor coating.
- Make sure that temperatures will remain between 50 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit and relative humidity to stay below 75%.
- Mix the colored part A mechanically for at least 1 minute prior to adding in part B. Now pour 1 part B into 4 parts an into a large mixing container (we pre-measured the kits to make it easy on you!). Then mix mechanically for a minimum of 2 minutes then the colored polyurethane floor coating is ready to use.
- Use a premium, de-fuzzed, phenolic core roller to roll out thin coats over workable area, making sure to maintain wet edges and back roll the entire surface.
- Two layers are typically suggested with any interior project receiving a polyurethane coating, with the second coat being applied as soon as first coat can be walked on, and is used in the same manner as the first layer.
- While not necessarily required, we suggest the use of a sacrificial wax coating extend the life of the floor and add a measure of slip resistance.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT DURA-KOTE COLORED POLYURETHANE FLOOR COATING:
Q: CAN I USE JUST ONE COAT OF DURA-KOTE SOLVENT COLORED POLYURETHANE FLOOR COATING?
A: Technically yes, however, it is not suggested. For the best results, we highly recommend using two thinly applied coats. Being said, Dura-Kote
colored polyurethane products have been known to function better than comparable sealers in situations where a single-coat interior sealer is required, and if you are happy with the color of a single coat, a clear coat may be used for the second coat of solvent based polyurethane instead of the colored polyurethane material.
Q: WILL DURA-KOTE COLORED POLYURETHANE FLOOR COATING SB SELF-LEVEL AND FILL SMALL HOLES?
A: To a very slight degree, yes. It is a higher solids content coating than an acrylic sealer, but is not high enough to fill large voids. Please prepare your floor appropriately.
Q: CAN DURA-KOTE COLORED POLYURETHANE FLOOR COATING SB BE USED OUTSIDE?
A: No, polyurethane coatings are not breathable in nature and therefore should not be utilized in exterior applications.
Q: I HAVE STRICT VOC LAWS IN MY AREA, CAN I USE DURA-KOTE COLORED POLYURETHANE FLOOR COATING SB?
A: Check with your local municipalities to be certain, but many states will accept a coating with the VOC rating for this product.
