Optional Preparation Using The Wet Screen Method
This is the recommended method when re-coating floors previously coated with: Traction® Floor Finish
(and do not wish to use Crimp Coat™). Wet screen and Crimp Coat™ methods keep dust from
entering the air causing air quality issues as well as potential dust residues on the floor coating.
Wet Screen Method using
Autoscrubber
Wet Screen Method using
175 RPM Floor Machine
Step 1: Dust mop floor to remove dust, sand
and debris. Use a putty knife to scrape
up gum, labels, or tape adhesive left on
the floor. Remove any gum or
adhesive residue. Rinse area with fresh
water thoroughly.
Step 2:
Step 1: Dust mop floor to remove dust, sand and debris.
Carry a putty knife to scrape up gum, labels, or
tape adhesive left on the floor. Remove any
gum or tape adhesive residue. Rinse area with
fresh water thoroughly.
Step 2: Clean and screen the floor using a solution of
Traction® diluted at 8 oz/gallon in the solution
of
the
autoscrubber.
tank
Use 120 grit sanding screens on pad
drivers.
Divide floor into smaller sections so
Traction® solution does not dry out before being
picked up. 250 square feet sections are
suggested.
One screen is required for every 1,000
square feet (500 square feet/side). Screen
two times in opposite directions for uniform
results.
Clean and screen the floor using a
solution of Traction® diluted at 8
oz/gallon. Apply the Traction® Solution to
the floor with a mop and then scrub the floor
with a 175 RPM floor machine and a
120 grit sanding screen.
Step 3: Rinse out solution tank and fill tank with fresh
water. Rinse floor thoroughly with fresh water
using a red pad on the scrubber. Rinse two times
in opposite directions for uniform results.
Allow floor to dry.
One screen is required for every 500 square feet
(250 square feet/side). Screen floor two times
in opposite directions for uniform results.
Step 4: Tack floor with cotton towels to pick-up any
residual dust. See Tack Procedure on page 5.
Repeat until no dust is found on floor.
Step 3: Pick-up spent solution after screening with wetvac or an autoscrubber.
Note: If the floor is scheduled to be recoated the day following the
preparation steps (Steps 1-4), secure facility or do what is needed
to prevent anyone from walking on or using the floor overnight.
Step 4: Rinse floor thoroughly with fresh water. Scrub
floor with floor machine and red pad.
Vacuum the rinse water; allow floor to dry.
Step 5: Tack floor with cotton towels to pick up any
residual dust. See tack procedure on page 5.
Repeat until no dust is found on floor.
Apply two coats of Traction® with
catalyst in both coats using the
PADCO Professional Floor Coater. See
page 5 for specific directions on applying
the Traction®.
Note: If the floor is scheduled to be recoated the day following the
preparation steps (Steps 1-4), secure o r do what is needed to
prevent anyone from walking on or using the floor overnight.
NOTE: If a large amount of existing coating has been removed during the screening process, as noted by a very dull
looking floor or if the liquid in the recovery tank of the autoscrubber or wet-vac is very cloudy or opaque, it is recommended
to re-scrub the floor.

OPTIONAL PREPARATION WITH CRIMP COAT™
Bonding Agent
Crimp Coat™ Floor Recoating Sealer allows Traction® Floor Coating to bond to most sports floors*
without the need to “screen” existing coatings. Traditionally, screening existing floor coatings is
required to ensure that the top coat will bond to the existing coating and will not peel or flake off of the
floor over time. This screening step is labor intensive and expensive when factoring in time/labor and
costs of the screens.
Crimp Coat™ saves time, labor & money and ensures that our Traction® will bond to most existing
coatings*, with no risk of peeling or flaking issues. Just remove any marks on floor, clean floor, rinse
and apply one thin coat of Crimp Coat™.
* May not work on some epoxy-based sports floor coatings.
Crimp Coat™ Method using
a 175 RPM Floor Machine
Crimp Coat™ Method using
an Autoscrubber
Step 1: Dust mop floor to remove dust, sand and any
debris. Use a putty knife to scrape up gum,
labels and tape adhesive left on the floor.
Remove any gum or adhesive residue Rinse
area with fresh water thoroughly.
Step 1: Dust mop floor to remove dust, sand and debris.
Use a putty knife to scrape up gum, labels and
tape adhesive left on the floor. Remove any
gum or adhesive residue. Rinse area with
fresh water thoroughly.
Step 2: Clean and scrub the floor using
a solution of Traction®
Cleaner diluted at 8 oz/gallon.
Apply the Traction® solution
to the floor with a mop and
scrub the floor with 175
RPM floor machine and a blue
or green pad (3M SPP Pads
are also acceptable).
Note: Divide floor into smaller sections so the
Traction® solution does not dry out before
being picked-up. 10 x 20 feet sections
are suggested.
Pick-up spent solution after scrubbing with a wetvac or an autoscrubber. Rinse with fresh water.
Step 3: Rinse Floor thoroughly with fresh water. Scrub
floor with floor machine and red or blue pad
Vacuum the rinse water; allow floor to dry.
Step 4: Immediately before applying the “Crimp
Coat™”, tack floor with clear water and cotton
towels to remove any residual dust. See
page 5 for detailed instructions on “Tacking a
Floor”. Wait for floor to dry.
Step 2: Clean and scrub the floor using
a solution of Traction®
Cleaner diluted at 8 oz/gallon
in the solution tank of an
autoscrubber using Blue or
Green Pads (3M SPP Pads
are also acceptable). Scrub
floor two times in opposite directions for best
results.
Step 3: Dispose of cleaning solution in solution tank of
autoscrubber and fill with fresh water. Rinse floor
thoroughly with fresh water using a red or blue
pad on the autoscrubber. Rinse floor two times
in opposite directions for best results. Allow floor
to dry.
Step 4: Immediately before applying the “Crimp
Coat™”, tack floor with clear water and cotton
towels to remove any residual dust. See page 5
for detailed instructions on “Tacking a Floor”.
Step 5: Apply one thin coat of Crimp Coat™ Floor
Recoat Sealer using a microfiber finish mop.
Allow to dry one hour. If humidity is high, a
slightly longer dry time may be required. Floor
should be not be sticky or tacky.
Step 5: Apply one thin coat of Crimp Coat™ Floor
Recoat Sealer using a microfiber finish mop.
Allow to dry one hour. If humidity is high (above
40%) a slightly longer dry time may be required.
Floor should not be sticky or tacky.
Step 6: Apply Traction® according to
instructions found on page 5.
Application of Crimp Coat with sprayer and microfiber mop.
Note: Do not wait over 3 hours before applying the
Traction® or you will be required to repeat steps 4 & 5.

Optional Preparation using Dry Screen Method
Preparation of floor by the Dry Screen Method is
recommended if the existing coating cannot be
prepared for coating by Crimp Coat™ o r when the
floor surface has deep scratches or the surface is
uneven.
This method will generate a level of dust. Special care
must be taken to control dust and to make sure the
dust does not settle into Traction® while coating
later. Additional tacking may be required.
120 Grit Sanding Screen
Step 1: Dust mop floor to remove dust, sand, and debris.
Carry a putty knife to scrape up gum or adhesive
residue.
Screen floor with 175 RPM Floor Machine. Be sure to use a red pad
between pad driver and sanding screen.
Step 2: Pre-clean the floor with Traction® at 8 oz/gal.
A sealed floor can be pre-cleaned with an
automatic scrubber. Alternatively use Traction®
as a cleaning solution and tack-clean the floor.
Let floor dry.
Tacking Procedure
Step 3: Rough up and dull the old finish by using a single
disc machine (175 rpm) and a 120 grit screen.
One screen is required for every 500 sq. ft (250
sq. ft. /side). Screen two times in
opposite directions for uniform results.
If the prepared floor is left for
several hours or overnight
prior to coating, the floor must be
tacked immediately before
applying Traction®.
Step 4: Vacuum the dry residue (dust). The dust can
also be cleaned up by rinsing floor using an
autoscrubber with red pad and fresh water.
Fill a mop bucket with fresh
water. Place 1to 2 large white cotton (Turkish) towels
in the mop bucket. Wring out a towel so that it is
damp, not saturated or dripping.
Tack the floor to completely remove all traces of
dust. Continue tacking the floor until towels are
completely clean and no more dust residue is
present on floor. See panel at right for details.
Wrap damp towel around a broom and push across
the floor to remove any residue. After every lap or so,
rinse out towel in mop bucket. Replace water in mop
bucket when water becomes visually dirty.
Note:
Tacking is the final step for
removing all traces of dry matter
(dust) from the floor.
Tacking floor with cotton
towels and push broom.
Repeat until no dust is found on floor. After floor dries,
wipe floor with fingers in several places to determine
if any residue remains. If any dust is found, tack floor
again.
If the floor is scheduled to be recoated the day
following the preparation steps (steps 1-4), lock
the facility or do what is needed to prevent
anyone from walking on the floor overnight.
Tack floor immediately before applying Traction®.
Dust in the air will settle overnight.
Step 5: Apply two coats of Traction® with catalyst in both
coats using the PADCO Professional Floor
Coater. See page 5 for details.
Marking Enamels
Roll-on® recommends Benjamin Moore Impervex
Latex Gloss Enamels.
NOTE: If a large amount of existing coating has been
removed during the screening process, as seen by a very
dull looking floor or if the liquid in the recovery tank of
autoscrubber or wet-dry vacuum is very cloudy or opaque,
it is recommended to re-screen the floor a second time
with 120 grit screens.
Apply game line enamel. Allow to dry overnight (12
hours minimum). Lightly roughen surface with a used
120 grit screen or green pad. Clean dust residue and
then apply Traction® as directed.
TIP: If possible, shut off the ventilation system during
application of finish to minimize air borne dust
settling into wet finish. Turn ventilation on when the
finish begins to set so as to aid drying.

Application of Traction® Floor Finish
Padco Professional Floor Coater
Application of Traction®
The Padco Professional Floor
Coater is ideal for applying
Traction® finishes.
Step 1. Catalyze Traction®. Mix one 4 oz catalyst
into each gallon of Traction®. Catalyze only the number
of gallons that will be needed for each coat. Note:
Both coats must be catalyzed.
The application is fast and
results in uniform coverage.
The Padco Professional Floor
Coater is available in 24 inch
width.
Replace cap on each gallon jug of Traction® and gently
invert the bottle of Traction® 20 times to mix catalyst.
Allow the catalyzed Traction® to sit for 10 minutes
before applying to floor and invert five additional
times.
Pour Traction® into a plastic garden sprinkling can or
other devices or methods that will dispense/pour a line of
Traction® along the floor without splashing, creating
bubbles or foam are acceptable.
Step 2. Begin applying a line of Traction® along the
length of the floor starting about 6 inches from the far wall.
Preliminary:
Step 3. Pre-wet the Padco
applicator pad in the line of finish
then begin applying by pulling the
excess finish toward the opposite
side of the floor (snowplowing).
Continue pouring and applying
product across floor. Overlap wet
area 50% each pass.
Plan your start point on the farthest side of the floor and
your end point at the most convenient exit.
Having two people applying Traction® is most efficient.
One will pour the product on floor and the other person
will apply coating using the Padco Floor Coater.
Do not to allow excess product to
flow beyond the opposite end of
the applicator at the end of each run. If this happens,
gently squeeze out excess product from the applicator,
then gently feather out the excess material on floor.
Assemble all equipment and chemicals needed:
Step 4. About 4 to 5 passes from the planned exit, pour
product unto the floor sparingly. Streaks will result if the
applicator dries out, so take caution.
On the very last run, if excess product is on floor, collect
it near the exit point and soak up with towels or rags. Do
not attempt to feather this excess product on floor.
Step 5. Allow the floor to dry 3-6 hours depending on air
flow and humidity. DO NOT re-coat in less than three
hours, even if the floor feels like it is dry.
