Default Re: Floor coating

For cleaning bare concrete after a spill,try this:soak the spot with brake-clean or parts-washer solvent,cover immediately with floor-dry,wait a min. or two,scrub the floor-dry over the spot in a circular motion with a block of wood.Sweep up floor dry.If its' still visible use some Sand-Mix and repeat the scrubbing.We have never coated any of our floors in our garages or shops and they still look good,and we are not neat and clean types,they get dirty,greasy,and nasty when working.The floor-coverings are great for light/moderate use,but any really busy or rough-service applications it doesn't last.The shop where I work used a sealer and it gets gummy when brake-clean hits it and is like a skating-rink when wet.I will never coat a floor.

There is no perfect answer for floors ,in areas that are subject to getting slipperyfrom any cause ,I use dry lock ,It has a gritty finish vertually non slip under almost any condition ,almost ,but still helps find small items and brightens up the area ,sweeping is still ,good electric broom ,works better.remember light reflection ,and seeing are my major motivations for doing it at all.

I will be using an Edco grinder to take off the top 1/8" of concrete. That will exposed the porous/non-stained concrete below. That way, I won't need to spend the money on solvents and etching. Just wash the dust off and roll it on.

Just had a friend of mine, painter by trade, using his three step process. Use an acid cleaner and spot remover for oil spots, check for markings markers, etc. , last two coats of Sherwin Williams floor paint @ around $48 bucks a gallon....Great job...

Sherwin Williams has all the info you need to do a great flooring job. Home Depot and Lowe's paints just want do the job according to him. He ought to know been in the painting business for 40 years....

Merry Xmas

Check out this Company. http://www.dur-a-flex.com/ I work for a Fire sprinkler contractor in Conn. I work in the Dur-A-Flex factory often. Great people. Been in business a very long time. All their floors are covered in thier product. Foot traffic, forklift traffic, pallets being dragged across the floors, you name it. It most likely has happened to their floors. And yes, it is acid and chemical resistant. I am amazed at the condition of their product considering what it goes through on a daily basis. They use their floors as a customer showcase and test bed. I will use this product on my garage/workshop as soon as I finish setting it up.

This is what I have in my garage. Great local rep and installer did mine. When I asked him about hot tire pickup, he told me that if that happened he would replace it for free. Cost me about $1700 for my detached 22x28 garage. I have had ZERO issues with it. I plan on doing the attached garage sometime soon.

My guy even let me pick out my own flake (from HD) for him to install. I absolutely LOVE this floor.

Wish I had done mine when the shop was new and (empty). Now it's too full of stuff and would be a major undertaking to empty it just to start the cleaning process. Hindsite...dang it!

Rent a diamond grinder. Take off top later. Test with water. If water beads dullup grind more until concrete . Check out flexmar pap sealer. If want an awesome floor use the flexmar varigete. Which will do the stain and seal with the pap sealer. Its a little pricey, but one time only. never dull, never chip, no waxing, never stain. Check it out. If need more info let me know. Would posta pic but it won't allow
