Customer Questions & Answers

can you use this product on a wood floor (like a garden shed?)

Asked by: Anonymous
I went ahead and put it on a wood floor. It was a new installed shed and had wood floor with some coating/sealer on it. The epoxy went down fine. It looks good and appears to be tough. I have dragged cabinets on it (after two weeks of curing) and they did not leave a mark. Have dropped tools. ie hammer etc and it did not chip. So it appears that this worked ok on sealed wood. We will have to see long term but after about to months it has been great.

is this product slip resistant?

Asked by: Anonymous
Hello Saeed! The Rust-Oleum EpoxyShield kit contains a package of multicolor traction chips that are sprinkled onto the floor after each four-by-four foot section is rolled. These chips add traction. Without them, the product dries with a slightly-shiny satin finish that can be slippery when wet. The DVD contained in the kit provides excellent application instruction. NOTE: The kit also contains a package of citric acid powder (white) for cleaning and etching before applying the epoxy coating. DO NOT add this white powder to your paint.

You will want to wash the floor using EPOXYShield Heavy-Duty Degreaser (sold separately) or an all purpose household cleaner. Allow the surface to completely dry before coating. If your local Home Depot doesn't carry the degreaser product, it can be special ordered.

My garage floor sweats every spring. Will this product stay intact with the moisture coming up through it?

Asked by: Anonymous
Rust-Oleum EpoxyShield will not hold back hydrostatic pressure ... water forced up from below the concrete. As a result, the coating will be unseated by water coming up from below the concrete ... resulting in peeling.

Customer Reviews

Epoxy Shield 1-gal. Basement Gray Floor Coating Kit-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great looking floor I applied this to my bare concrete basement floor and I'm very happy with how it looks. I didn't use a clear coat. The floor was about 550 sq ft. I combined two gallons and there was more than enough. My kids were riding their scooters on it two days later. The hardest thing was the prep work, which involved extensive sweeping, degreasing, mopping, and filling imperfections. I do recommend keeping the area well ventilated for a few hours after application. The odor was strong while it dried but managed by opening windows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent results! Drying time is fast so you have to be quick if you opt to use the floor sprinkles. I sealed cracks before painting and initially they showed through, as did the different area tiniting, but once the product dries it is uniform. The first 2-3 sweepings will dislodge any sprinklings but 99% stay put!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended For Unfinished Basement Floors Did some research before purchasing and decided to go with this kit due to some good reviews. Overall,well put together kit,easy to follow instructions,easy to mix etc. Floor is fairly new,so prep wasn't too difficult,just swept,vacuumed and taped up the area.Definitely recommend using some good lighting,it's easy to miss spots when applying it. Dried fast,seems to be doing very well so far and looks extremely better than the bare concrete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Surprised My basement is a nightmare, many many layers of old paint, cracks everywhere, damp, stone foundation. I knew i am never going to get it into a livable space but never thought it would liik as good as it does now thanks to this epoxy. The state of the floors means i will probably be patching and repairing it forever, it was not possible to get all the paint off, but the look of this epoxy has greatly improved the basement. The flakes naturally add a non-uniform look to the floor that does a great job of masking all the other imperfections and it really is hard. I thought that it would be flaking up already and after 3 months of battering it looks like new. Only challenge was the cost, but it covered really well, more Sqft than advertised, way more flakes than needed. It does not stop water seepage through the cracks in the floor, but it specifically says it does not and warns against using it in my situation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT FOR A GARAGE I put this product down a week ago. I've been working in the garage since and parked my Harley on it the same night. This coating is very sturdy and easy to apply. So far, I'm very impressed. Although I don't need it, I would like to see some 1 quart repair kits available as I'm sure I'll need it in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product that is priced right We used this product in a small area of a basement. It was easy to use. We were very please with the results. As with any painting project, preparation of the area to be painted is very important.
