Frequently Asked Questions For Epoxy Paint Floor Coatings

Frequently Asked Questions For Epoxy Paint Floor Coatings

1. Do you have a product that will withstand extremely heavy traffic as well as heavy machinery such as hi-lows, floor jacks, etc? I want to do this once, so I want durability and longevity. I hear solvent-borne epoxy or 100% solids epoxy is the way to go.

2. Is thetopcoat necessary. I’ve noticed most brands do not offer the topcoat.

4. I want a basecoat color other than the ones pictured on your site. Can you custom tint the epoxy.

5. Do your color chips provide a non-skid surface. Do I really need the non-skid additive? If so, How is it applied.

6. I have seen a lot of products that say if my floor has anymoisture. the epoxy will not adhere properly. Does your product have issues with garage floors that have moisture.

7. Can you use this product on exterior sidewalks too.

8. My floor has beenpainted in the past. but has completely lost its coverage in the some areas where the car is parked in the winter. It’s very old and deteriorating in these areas (not flat, sort of crumbling). Can I use your product.

9. Can this product be used to paint a Formica kitchen counter top or ceramic tile. Seems like if it is tough enough to drive on, it ought to be tough enough for counter use.

10. How does your product compare to the big box stores (aka home depot/lowe’s) product.

13. Where can I find decals like the ones that you show on your website? How are they applied.

14. We have alinoleum (sheet vinyl) floor. It is in good condition physically but the surface is scratched and dull. Can we apply your product over this existing floor without removing it down to the concrete slab ?

15. I’ve read that a primercoat will help with longevity? Do you have a primer epoxy available ?

16. Can I use your epoxy to cover Wood, Steel, Metal, Ceramic Tile, or Fiberglass ?

17. Where I live our winters are pretty harsh. My 2-car garage is painted with epoxy, and when snow melts off the car and lands on the floor it just sits there and forms a puddle. I have no idea how to contain this problem.

18. What’s the best way todisperse the chips. How about Non-skid and Clearcoat ?

19. My garage is already coated with an epoxy, what do I need to do to prep the floor for a new coating ?

20. Hey, I have a wooden car hauler. can I apply this on a wood sub floor ?

21. When is the best time/temperature to apply my floor coating ?

22. How tolerant is an epoxy floor towater exposure. In cases of extreme rain/flooding conditions, my basement will take water in certain areas. This does not occur often, but enough to make carpeting unsuitable.

23. I am looking for afull-broadcast chip coverage floor. can I achieve this with your product? I want to create the «granite» or «marble» look. Would the clear top coat included with the complete coating kits achieve the glossy shine of polished stone?

25. When I mix/apply my clear coat it turns milky white. Is this normal or did I do something wrong?

26. Can you provide maintenance information for epoxy floors? How often do they have to be cleaned, how to clean them, etc.?

27. How long, after having a new garage floor poured. do I need to wait before applying your product to concrete?

28. I purchased a kit with a heavy broadcast of chips and applied a single clear coat. I like the texture of it, as it provides a non-skid, pebbled look, but I really would prefer it to be a bit more smooth. Can I add another coat to it without having any problems?

29. When is the best time apply a subsequent coat after the primer and after the basecoat?

30. I’m purchasing a new home, are there any steps that can be skipped since the garage floors are in perfect condition?

32. Question: Our garage was already painted and probably sealed before we moved in. We would really like to purchase your product, however, we read that your etching solution does not cut through sealer. What can we do to unseal our garage so that we can use your products?

33. I had this product done on my garage floor several years ago. There is an area that is starting to come up in about quarter size chips. Is there a patch kit available or must I have the whole garage redone? If I must have the whole thing redone must the old product be taken up or can it be applied over top?

34. Eh, I am from Canada and I am wondering how much shipping is and if there are any product shipping restrictions?

35. After I applied my clearcoat, I noticed tiny little bubbles on the surface. What caused this and how do I fix it?

36. After I used your repair kit for my clearcoat, I noticed the touchup areas are more glossy than the rest of the floor. How do I get my surface back to an even gloss?

37. I recently applied epoxy on my garage floor and my lip(outside of my garage door and to the end of my slab) of my garageturned yellow ; what happened and what can I do to fix it?

40. When I pulled my car out of my garage, I noticed black tire marks where I was parked. I tried to clean them off but it seems as if thetire marks stained the clear coat. What happened and what can I do to fix or prevent this?

41. After I applied thePrePrime 167 epoxy primer coat. I noticed that my floor wassplotchy and it didn’t look like I had enough epoxy to cover the area. Did I apply the product wrong or not have enough material?
