How to Apply Epoxy Paint to a Workshop Floor
How to Paint a Basement or Garage Floor
Like a lot of folk, I spent quite a bit of time in my basement workshop. A workshop floor takes a huge beating and nothing looks better in a workshop or nice garage as a clean, shiny and professional quality finished floor. This article will show you how to apply epoxy paint to a workshop floor.
In order to obtain that professional finished quality floor look, you need to use epoxy paint. Epoxy paint is the best product to use for adhesion and it protects the floor from oil, gasoline, salt, glue and resists cracking.
Epoxy paints are well known for their excellent adhesion, chemical and heat resistance. Bottom line – it’s a tough paint for tough locations like workshops and garages. This article will explain how to apply epoxy paint to a workshop floor
Using Rust-Oleum EPOXYSHIELD
I’ve used Rust-Oleum EPOXYSHIELD several times in the past with outstanding results and decided it was the best choice for our new workshop floor for the following reasons:
- Easy to Mix: comes in a two-component, water-based epoxy kit
- Low odor
- Water based: soap and water clean up
- Easy to apply: one coat
- Dries in 24 hours: can be driven on in 72 hours
- Super durable: resists peeling, cracking and fading.
- Excellent impact, stain and abrasion resistance
I really like that EPOXYSHIELD dries to a gloss finish. It is applied as a solid base color with a color fleck finish that is applied when the paint is wet.
EPOXYSHIELD comes in two colors, tan or gray, colors and a tint base that can be tinted to 32 colors. Decorative colored paint chips are also provided and result in a terrazzo-like finished look.
