Rated 2 out of 5Â by Brian Careful with this one!
We purchased two of these, in the Tan color. The labels were slightly different, but the color code was the same: 955. However, the product inside was VERY different. One came out ok, the other, a disaster requiring a redo of the whole job.
In the good one, the paint in the container contains the tan colorant, ie, the paint is tan. In the bad one, the paint was white, and the colorant was actually in the epoxy can. The colorant had hardened and I had to dig it out of the can. It took a good 25-30 min of stirring to mix it. It came out a noticeably different color and sheen. But the worst part, it remains water soluble even 3 weeks after application. If it gets wet, it softens and comes right off! Totally Defective Product! So make sure you check the color of the paint inside the container - if it's white, DON"T BUY IT!!!
For both containers the coverage was less than the label stated (which is why we had to buy a second one).

Rated 1 out of 5Â by mrh3090 Behr 2 Part Epoxy
I have used this product a couple times before with limited problems with the product. It has been inconsistant with getting the same results or each can is a little different. We followed the instructions to the letter. Our customer on this last job with this product called me and told me the floor was coming up and not just under the tires but all over. I will not use this product again and will not accept work with the Behr products. I now have to go through the warranty paperwork to prove it was a bad product and in order to get refunds on products we used and new product to redo. Bad product makes my business look bad too.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by RonSc BEHR 2-part epoxy floor Paint SKU# 102364
Pro's - good color selection, liked the additional color selections as I did not want to use the flake chips ( try to find a small screw or nail accidently dropped on a rough multicolor surface), adheres well on a properly prepared surface.
Cons - This water based coating is very thin, approx 2 mills in comparison to a real epoxy finish that is 9 to 16 mills. it does not fill any rough areas in the concrete (used a pressure washer to prep the surface which ate away the smooth finish in problem areas). final appearance same as a thin stain. floor chips easily since the coating is so thin.
will now have to purchase a real epoxy clear seal to finish the floor, so my cost just doubled.

When you open the box, youâll notice that the kit includes a powder acid mix, sprinkles for the floor, a brush, a roller head, a roller tray attachment for the box, a mixing stick, and a quart of âapplicator,â which is essentially the color. After cleaning the floor, you add the applicator to the white paint, which just sits in the front of the box with no cover beyond the outside box cover. However, I stress that this is a small amount of paint. The box is misleading. It says it covers 250 square feet, but because of the porous nature of the acid etched concrete, it only covers roughly half of that area. If you want to complete your project, youâll have to buy another kit (I have a one car garage). They donât sell the 2-part epoxy by itself. They just sell the one part. My wife and had had to run over to Home Depot to buy another kit so the floor could dry at the same time. Unfortunately, after taxes, those kits come out to about $78 each. At least we have an extra brush, roller head, sprinkles, and acid mix for another project. The floor looks nice, but the whole kit system needs to be improved. I just wish they sold a larger kit for say $120 instead of forcing people to buy two. Beware: if youâre on a tight budget, $78 is expensive for 120 square feet, $156 is much more.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mizterz 2 part garage epoxy paint - great kit at a great price.
Product is very easy to use, but as with any paint, the better you prepare your surface, the better results you will get. Don't expect this paint to fill imperfections in the floor. It goes on very thin. You must resolve any defects in the floor prior to using this product - and make sure that your repair cures for the proper amount of time before applying this product (30 days for new concrete).
After using a cement product to fill voids and surface damage, I used a grinder and resurfacing bit to manually dress the concrete surface (1.5 hours). I then used the etching acid included with this product to prepare the surface for paint. Most everything needed is in the kit, but you might want to add a 9" roller frame, extension handle and painter's tape.
The paint mixes easily and spreads easily. Don't forget to cast out the floor flakes as you proceed. You cannot throw the flakes any appreciable distance. I found that throwing them upwards is the best way to get an even distribution. The actual painting process took under 1 hour.
The finished floor looks great and wears extremely well.
