Can I apply KABRIC Floor myself?
KABRIC floor can be applied by anyone, DIY people, and professionals. When you purchase the product, it comes with a detailed user guide, which we recommend you read through before starting the process. You can find the user guide here.
How many square meters will the KABRIC Floor system cover?
On each of the KABRIC Floor colours’ product pages you can select the components you need for your project and add the number of square meters you need to cover. Then you can see how much you need of each component and add the products directly to your cart.
Which primer should I choose?
The KABRIC Floor system consists of two primers, which are very different. The most important thing is that you choose the primer that best suits your project.
If you have a 100% smooth surface, you can settle for Prepare, which is the simplest, fastest, and cheapest solution. But if you have an uneven floor, for instance, a tiled floor, you need to use Smooth Prepare + Filler. Smooth Prepare + Filler is an epoxy primer which levels out irregularities, provides good adhesion and hardens very well.
You can read more about choosing the right primer for your project in this blog post.
Which varnish should I choose?
You can choose between three types of varnish for your KABRIC Floor project.
Strongcoat Matt and Strongcoat Silk are ready-to-use varnishes, which are easy to apply, and give a beautiful and robust surface. If you choose one of these two, you do not need to mix a varnish base with a hardener.
Strongcoat Extra is a 2-component varnish providing an ultra-matte finish.
Make sure to use all the varnish that comes with your order and apply it to a completely even surface with no irregularities for the best and most durable result.
Do I need an epoxy course to use Smooth Prepare?
Private individuals do not need an epoxy certification. Investigate if it is mandatory for professionals in your country, to have an epoxy certification.
Are KABRIC floor colours identical to KC14 and KABRIC?
KABRIC Floor is available in 25 of the most popular KABRIC and KC14 colours. The three products have unique bases, which means that the colour and texture are not 100% identical. Colours are experienced differently depending on light and angles. The KABRIC floor colours are adapted at a horizontal angle (floor) to KABRIC and KC14 at a vertical angle (wall) in a lighting cabinet, in our colour laboratory.
How to clean KABRIC Floor?
KABRIC Floor can be cleaned with diluted, mild detergents without abrasives. Always use cleaning tools that do not scratch the surface.
What kind of surfaces can KABRIC Floor be applied to?
Tiles: Uneven surfaces such as tiles should be levelled out to an even surface with Smooth Prepare Bundle before KABRIC Floor is applied.
Parquet: Prepare and Smooth Prepare can both be used on parquet flooring. If you want to be absolutely sure the parquet flooring is not faintly visible through the final result, Smooth Prepare must be used.
Concrete: Prepare is recommended on concrete if the concrete flooring is 100% even. Should there be any dents, holes, or irregularities in the surface, or if the surface is rough, Smooth Prepare Bundle should be used to level out the surface, before priming the entire area with Prepare.
Linoleum: Prepare and Smooth Prepare can both be used on linoleum. We recommend Prepare if the surface is completely even.
Terrazzo: Prepare and Smooth Prepare can both be used on terrazzo. We recommend Prepare if the surface is completely even without any holes or repairs.
Laminate: Prepare and Smooth Prepare can both be used on laminate. We recommend Prepare if the surface is completely even.
Can KABRIC Floor be used in wet zones?
The KABRIC Floor system tolerates moisture and water impact when you prime with Smooth Prepare and finalize with Strongcoat Silk. The system is, however, not certified for use in wet zones or surfaces where documented vapour- and waterproofing is required.

Can KABRIC Floor be used on furniture?
We recommend KABRIC over KABRIC Floor on furniture, as KABRIC is easier to apply to objects and vertical areas. It is a good idea to prime the furniture with a suitable primer first, before applying KABRIC. Finally, remember to give your furniture one of the Strongcoat varnishes from the KABRIC Floor system. See our step-by-step guide for KABRIC furniture here.
Can KABRIC Floor be used outdoors?
No, we do not recommend the use of KABRIC Floor outdoors.
Can KABRIC Floor be used on floors with underfloor heating?
Yes, KABRIC Floor can be used on floors with underfloor heating. Be sure to turn off the floor heating before starting the application process. Only when the floor has hardened, the floor heating can be switched on, increasing the temperature slowly and gradually over a few days.
