I used the search function of this website and read for hours , all of the posts related to floor coating products and procedures . I still have not come to a " concrete " (pun intended) conclusion as to what to use or if I want to do it at all . I thought I would revive this thread to see if anyone has any new product reviews , especially in regards to the por-15 floor armor coatings . A previous poster asked for feedback from guys that have actually used it but it kind of died there . I would love to hear from guys that not only have done this recently but from those of you whose floor coating is a few years old now to see how it is holding up . Thanks in advance for the info . This is a great site ! Choptop26

My Wolverine floor is holding up very well.
Just over 3 years old now and my shop gets used just about every day since I'm retired.

roger1 , thanks for the input . I have looked at the Wolverine products and compared them to the others and it looks like a superior system for several reasons . I would like to use it if it just wasn't so expensive . I am sure I only want to coat the floor one time but right now it's just not in the budget . I was looking for something less expensive with good results . Maybe I should just wait until the budget allows the " good stuff " . I would still like to hear about other's experiences .

Keep in mind that "per mil of thickness" the Wolverine is actually not near top of the cost list.

It's 100% solids. Some of these epoxies are less than 50%. The water based ones are in the low 40s.

As far as value per dollar I'm sure you are right about that . It's just the total out of pocket right now doesn't work for me . It is definitely my floor of choice , but I was looking for other alternatives that aren't quite as costly but still do a respectable job . I hope to be able to do the wolverine floor but need a backup plan in case the money just doesn't come . Anyone use the Por-15 Floor Armor ? I've read quite a few posts that are a couple of years old now and am hoping to get some feedback as to how well their floors have held up . Thanks .

I don't have a dog in this fight but I think that there haven't been any POR 15 coating posts tells you all you need to know. JMHO.

I was kinda thinking the same thing Stick . I know folks are pleased with por-15 products in general , but the fact that I can't find any feedback on their floor coating anywhere , speaks volumes . If it was good stuff , you would expect to see testamonials all over the internet . Thanks for the observation !
