Boy the original thread is old...

I used Sherwin Williams garage expoxy on a 500sq ft in my garage/gameroom/workout room. Its great for in there but I wouldn't use it out in my shop. IT's Too expensive, stains with welding spatter, most of this expoxy stuff won't hold up to steel wheels on creepers, jacks and cherry pickers.

I wouldn't use any enamels or otherwise as they won't "wear-off" it will start peeling and might even catch fire if you are welding.

If its a working shop then you could just apply a concrete sealer and once in a while use a floor machine with and 80grit 3m scotchbrite type pad to scrub it and then just use and industrial mop and some hot water in between jobs to keep it clean. (Rent a floor machine for about 25 a day and the pads are 6.00 each)

I used Orchard Supply Hardware concrete stain,2nd garage,it's been on 3 years and looks great. I did not have to treat the cement,but if yours is old,you may need to acid etch first.Thay have about ten differant base colors,I spilled tranny fluid,alot,and it came right up. Welding or grinding has no effect on it.
