When minimum disruption is required, instant coating offers the perfect solution. Any nuisance is kept to an absolute minimum and while one section of the floor is being treated, activity elsewhere in the area can continue. Furthermore, other benefits are;
- The coating saves significant time
- Can withstand temperatures from -25 degrees to + 35 degrees
- The coated surface resists mechanical and chemical pressures within seconds.
- It can also be used for indoor and outdoor spaces

A breakthrough in the area of floor finishing
A coating that cures at the speed of light sounds nice and innovative but is it really instant? The answer is yes. SolidLux developed a new and patented coating system that cures instantly via exposure to UV light. This was done in collaboration with specialized market partners. It also makes the floor impact resistant within only a few seconds. Never before has it been possible to develop and also manufacture an instantly curing, industrial grade, hard wearing floor coating. Also, this new, coating system is the only floor coating that cures instantly by exposure to UV light.
Thanks to UV technology the process of drying and curing is now contained within a single process. The coated surface is exposed to UV light with a portable or hand-held UV lamp. Furthermore, the exceptionally durable, opaque, coloured floor coating system contains 100% solids. And an overall coat thickness of 300 micrometre. This is more than sufficient for a robust, wear-resistant and yet instantly cured floor surface.
A new floor coat, in the blink of an eye!
Time is money. And that says a lot about the benefits of Solidlux. The coating system can be applied in between other activities, with minimal interruption of the regular activities in the area. For example:
The complete system includes 5 products:
- the standard SolidLux coating system (Basecoat and Topcoat)
- a filling and levelling coat (Screed)
- a primer for porous surfaces (Adhesive)
- a filling paste for repairs (Putty)
And each product has the patented UV technology and cures instantly. Whether it’s a new top coat or a complete system, the time savings are impressive in every situation!
Additional bonus: It’s is a single component system. And that’s good for the environment as well as efficient.

Information about the manufacturer
On 24 February 2016, Dutch paint manufacturer Van Wijhe Verf in Zwolle, the Netherlands, introduced a breakthrough in the area of industrial floor coatings: SolidLux Instant Coating. But seeing is believing of course. So here are a few examples of practical application of this new coating system in the Netherlands:
- Gallery floor retirement complex Wilhelminastaete
The existing floor was sanded and provided with two coats of SolidLux Basecoat. The second coat is sprinkled with kiln dried filter sand, 0.2-0.6. The surface is finished with a SolidLux Topcoat. After each coat a portable UV lamp is used for instant curing.
- Cold store floor maintenance Van de Ven Food Impuls
The floor was cleaned, sanded and provided with a coat of SolidLux Screed, mixed with SolidLux Adhesive. For robust coat thickness and good adhesion two coats of SolidLux Basecoat were applied before the final SolidLux Topcoat. After each coat a portable lamp was used to cure the coated surface instantly by UV light.
- Kitchen floor at a pancake restaurant
The aisle was cleaned, degreased and sanded by hand and lined with masking tape. Worn patches were twice treated with a coat of SolidLux Basecoat, whereby the first coat was mixed with 10% SolidLux Adhesive for optimal adhesion between the old coating and the new finish. The surface was then completely treated with SolidLux Basecoat. Finally, a SolidLux Topcoat was applied and manually sprinkled with a white flake. When treating smaller areas such as this the portable UV lamp is ideal. It was done within three hours.
- Cold cheese storage and also cold storage Friesland Campina Cheese
In a cold store, used for storing cheese, 125 metres of lines was applied on a coated concrete floor. The cold store remained fully operational a temperature of 4° C; with the surface temperature of the floor at 2° C. After applying the coating the lines were UV-cured with a Decorad Handlamp, making the floor instantly resistant to mechanical loads and stresses.
