ZAPPER68 Interesting thread....I too have a fresh concrete garage/shop floor I want to paint. With the above comments in mind, what is the preferred product that will give me a safe, clean and easily maintainable surface. Thanks in advance.

1ownerT The pellets for traction make it a PITA to sweep the floor clean.

poncho62 I used to work in a printing plant.....We would stain the concrete floor with ink every year or so....worked well and wasn't slippery......drys quick, but keep it ventilated when it is drying

snorulz these are some really good points!

DOCTOR DC If You Do Any Welding Or Torch Work, You Will Find The Coating Will Actually Melt And Potentially Catch Fire. Also The Anti-slip Pellets Make It Troublesome To Easily Roll The Floor Jack And Other Hard Wheeled Items. Just Something To Consider.

Runnin'OnEmpty I just picked up one of these Quickrete floor coating kits to test.
The kit includes a pack of very tiny plastic beads to add to the epoxy,
which is supposed to give the coating an anti-slip quality....

It's also soap and water clean up, and low odor.

pepi One to think about ... ever notice on TV when they show the floor in all it's glory and then they add those little sprinkles or flakes onto the surface ..... try to imagine looking for small nuts, screws or washers with that added camouflage on the floor ..

DOCTOR DC We had are shop at work done. looked great... 1 year and 3 broken ankles and 2 knee problems later , the owner had it chipped out. Any liquids on it and its like ice. I know they ground the floor down before applying to gain adheshion. just my 2 cents

Garage Floor Coating

Another question

anyone with experience on a "do it yourself" garage floor coating project.
The local Lowes carries Rust-Oleum and Quickrete epoxy floor coatings
The Rust-O brand has two color choices,, the Quik has 30,, anyone have experience with these products or doing this in general?
The prices to have this done professionally is not in the budget, 3.00 a square, but It looks like I could do a 2 car garage myself for around 150,, which fits my wallet.
