Epoxy Floor Coating

This industrial grade solvent based epoxy is used for a longer lasting more durable garage floor coating. This floor coating has a higher solids count that most solvent based epoxies and is much more durable than the water based epoxies you'll find at most stores. We have searched high and low and have not found a higher quality garage floor coating than we offer here.

There are four steps involved to properly coat your garage floor with epoxy. First you should etch and clean the concrete. Second you should seal the concrete. Third you should apply the epoxy and color chips. Fourth and finally you should apply a clear topcoat. Doing all four steps will assure you that your epoxy garage floor coating will last for years without problems.

Do not apply epoxy flooring when surface or air temperatures are below 50F (10C).

Before you begin, if you see tiny crystals or white powder on your floor, this is moisture migrating through the concrete which will often cause peel up of any kind of coating you apply. Test your concrete by putting a rubber mat on the floor or tape down a 3 by 3 ft sheet of plastic. Wait overnight. If water collects between it and the floor there is a moisture problem and any floor epoxy will probably not cure or dry properly. If the water test fails, please contact us regarding further options.

To apply an epoxy coating to your floor, first you must clean and etch the concrete to prepare it for the epoxy. Etching will make the concrete have a rougher texture which will give the epoxy a better surface to for adhesion. Remember that the epoxy is only as good as the prep work, so realize this is the most important step in the epoxy floor coating process. If your concrete has been treated with cement sealer no epoxy will stick to it. To test your garage floor, pour water on the cement. It should soak into the cement in a reasonable time. If it beads up or just sits there for a long time, the concrete has been sealed or is oil contaminated. Our Etch and Clean solution will dissolve oil and grease stains but will not cut through a sealer. If the concrete is new or does not have heavy oil contamination it still needs to be etched. The concrete garage floor should resemble 100 grit sandpaper (or more coarse) once the etching is completed so the new epoxy coating will adhere properly. Multiple application of the Clean and Etch may be needed in some situations. 1 Gallon of Etch and Clean covers 250-300 square feet.

Second, you should seal the concrete to keep out moisture and to provide an additional bonding coat for the epoxy. Our 1 gallon kit of Epoxy Penetrating Sealer covers 800 square feet.

Third, apply the epoxy basecoat material by brush, roller or spray. If the floor is damp, or the air musty, the epoxy will probably not bond very well, so wait until conditions are appropriate. Do not apply when surface or air temperature is below 50F. Our 2 gallon kit covers 450 square feet.

Fourth and finally, you should apply a clear topcoat to the epoxy floor. This will make cleanup of the floor easy and add a glossy finish. Our Clear Epoxy Topcoat 1 gallon kit will cover 300 sq. ft.
