Metal primers are specially formulated primers that can adhere to heavy and dense metal substrates. They play two critical roles:

  1. Providing a surface to which paint can stick.
  2. Protecting the metal surface against oxidation, rust, chemical damage, abrasive damage, oil damage, water damage and so on.

There are three common types of metal primers available: epoxy metal primers, solvent based primers, and MMA metal primers. Each formulation has its own unique pros/con. We stock all three types, including:

CPR 410 – Metal Primer – Epoxy WB

Penny Floor Resin & Sealer

A penny floor is a beautiful addition to any home. It adds a sense of character and charm, impressing guests and adding value to a property. It also gives you a chance to create a unique element within your home which showcases your artistic skills.

Penny floor resin, also called penny floor epoxy or penny floor epoxy resin, is a clear sealer which is applied to penny floors. Made from a combination of polymer resins and hardeners it creates an extremely smooth and shiny surface that highlights the quality of your pennies and brightens a space.

When it comes to epoxy coatings, there are two types of products to choose from:

  • Solvent based epoxy floor coatings
    The original type of epoxy hardener. Made from a solvent-based hardener with resin. Unfortunately, there are some downsides to using this type of epoxy including the emission of toxic fumes during application.
  • Water-based epoxy
    Delivers the same waterproof glossy finish as a solvent based epoxy, but it is 100% non-toxic. This is the most commonly used epoxy floor coating.

At CPRL, we stock several water-based products which are UV stable, non-toxic and ideal for creating coin cast flooring or penny floor designs. The most popular option for these types of floors is CPR 819 – Crystal Clear Epoxy Resin – UV Stable .

CPR 819 is designed for thick applications of epoxy where objects are encased. It is an extremely clear high-gloss epoxy which will highlight all of the features of your pennies. Its excellent UV resistance means it is suitable for areas which are exposed to a lot of sunlight.

This product is non-toxic and extremely safe to use. It adheres well to both concrete and stonework surfaces which makes application simple. Once dry, it provides excellent chemical resistance. It is a low odour product, which makes it suitable for penny floors installed in kitchens and small enclosed areas like bathrooms.
