Use Overkote in well-ventilated areas and store away from direct sunlight. Avoid inhalation and contact with eyes, skin, and clothing by wearing appropriate personal protective equipment as outlined below.

Ground and bond all containers when transferring the material, empty containers may still retain product and product vapour. Do not expose to heat, flame, sparks or other ignition sources such as cutting, welding, drilling, grinding or static electricity. Do not pressurise and provide adequate safety showers and eyewashes in the area of use.

Protective overalls

Always wear protective clothing when using Overkote, the disposable coveralls available in the store are the best way to protect your clothing and uncovered areas.


Make sure you have on a pair of wrap-around safety glasses before handling or mixing any Overkote resins, primers or cleaning solutions. Always have two bottles of sterile eyewash on site – one for the active site area and one for backup.


Never let the Overkote resin, primers or solvents come into contact with the skin. Always wear either heavy-duty latex disposable gloves or heavy-duty reusables available to buy online.


Along with keeping you safe, storing Overkote materials in the correct way will also maintain the life of the system allowing for optimum performance.

Overkote system

Materials must be stored undercover and storage areas must be kept between 5°C and 25°C. Materials should never be exposed to freezing conditions or excessive temperature changes. Once opened, containers should be used completely. The typical due date for Overkote is one year after its manufacturing date.


Overkote primers should be stored in the original containers at temperatures between 5°C - 30°C. Product shelf life: 1 year, from date of manufacture.


Any remaining Overkote materials need to be disposed of in the correct way, without causing harm to the environment.

All remaining materials can be disposed of at special waste collection points. Containers or internal liners coming from a container, having contained the Overkote resins and primers are also considered hazardous wastes. Dispose of in a safe manner in accordance with local/national regulations.

The Allbase recycling programme lets you return any remaining materials to us to ensure the waste product is disposed of responsibly.
