Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joes Great Product but watch the temperature!
Have used this product on two different garage floors. Works as advertised. We love it. However, be careful to apply only if surface temperature is at least 60 degrees or higher. First time I applied it was in summer and things went beautifully. This last time, temps were lower. Directions say to apply only if the surface is 55 degrees or higher. They aren't kidding! We "cheated" a little and things didn't go as well. The coating sets up almost immediately and becomes extremely difficult to spread. If I ever do this again, I will wait until temps are in the 70s or higher.

So we finally bought this product for our 1 car garage .
Wasnt sure how it would work but I have to say I like it a lot.
Things went good .If I could do it again I would let product sit longer after mixing. It seem to go on better and smoother after sitting. There is enough paint to do the sides and the expantion joint really well as I kinda went fast and thin coat on sides thinking I wouldnt have enough. Also they give plenty of the spinkels . So at the beginning i didnt use very many sprinkels and ended up with a half a bag left .
So all in all let product sit for the 1/2 hour recommended . Take time on side and ex-joints. use plenty of splinkels from beginning to end .This product is great !
Looks great ----no spell check ?

Outside air temps were just above the recommended minimum of 50'F when I tackled this task. Floor was bare concrete with just a few oily stains. The kit includes plenty of degreaser-etcher which I used sparsely. I needed three kits on my 2+car garage. The kit includes a 'how-to" DVD which was helpful, but did not answer my question of how to deal with the 3/8" cracks I had in my floor. I found two caulk-type crack repair products. The better one seamed to be a polyseamseal product, but it needed several days to cure, so I went with a DAP product which was paintable in 30 minutes. The DAP product was adequate, but it shrunk quite a bit as it dried, so I wished I had time to use the Polyseamseal caulk.
Once the 2 parts of the Epoxy are mixed, you MUST finish using it in 2hrs...this was no problem. It has been down for 30 days now and so far looks great and no problem with hot tires, etc.

I purchased two of these kits in grey for my 1-car garage. One kit says it covers 250 square feet and that's about right. My garage is 190 square feet and I had about one-fifth of the can left over.
This is so easy to use, it's literally painting the floor. It turned out beautifully.
The hard part is preparing the floor. Mine had never been painted, but was filthy and had some hairline cracks. I used the etching powder included and it turned out great. Just be sure it's completely dry, especially in small cracks, before applying. Oh, and be sure to buy a squeegee to get the water off after cleaning. It was a huge help. I bought one to attach at the end of a broom handle for $5 at Home Depot.
I didn't fill any of the hairline cracks before painting, and the epoxy filled them in nicely with the first kit. To be safe, I applied a second kit 24-hours later. It was definitely worth the $150 for the two kits and materials. It looks like a showroom floor!

I installed this on a concrete shower floor as to protect it temporarily. It was on the floor for about 5 years before my wife decided she would like a river gravel tile floor. It did have a few specks that had wore off from the constant hot water beating down on it but held up better than I had expected. Had to remove it with a wire wheel on a grinder before installing the tile. Very tough. Also put some of the left over on the floor of a pantry in the basement a couple years ago and it still looks like new.

Applied product to 3 year old seldom used garage floor. Remove everything from the garage cleaned the floor and let it dry for three days. The day before leaving on a trip the two car garage was coated only took about two hours. Left door open the Florida heat and sun help dry the floor in a couple of hours. Returned a few weeks later the floor was fantastic. No more sweeping the concrete dust, spilled small amounts of gas, grease, oil, etc. All have wiped up easily with no damage to the epoxy. No hot tire pickup. Wish I had inspected the floor closer there are two small 3" spots where concrete broke and will need coating. 4 years later the coating is still great. Every one in the neighborhood has coated their floor with Rust-Oleum 1-Gallon Semigloss 2-Part Epoxy Garage-Floor Coating.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Marc It looks awesome, but
The but is that after the first winter (I live where it get well below freezing every winter for months on end) it started to peel off, and again this winter it is peeling more. Now I'm unsure what to do. I contacted the manufacture and they sent me a patch kit? I guess I have a big problem.

I have used this stuff for years on about 10 garage floors, both new concrete and old. Great stuff. Easy to mix, lasts 1-2 hours. Can walk on it in 1-2 hours. Can park on it the next day (but best to give it 48 hours).
Looks great (I like the tan color best).
Lasts long time.
Best if the floor has been power-washed and cleaned with the cleaner that is provided in the box. Clean well and let dry overnight. But, if you don't do it right, it will still last 1-2 years before you see some wearing through or flaking off.
Then, a recoat is simple to do and it will last twice as long as the first.
