Answer: 
Etching is essential! It's like another said. It's not a cleaner. Etching is a product that causes better cohesion. All paint, regardless of product, price or manufacture, will peel if the concrete/cement is not properly prepared. I tried the shortcut....paint peeled. Used etching and it's still beautiful. Rustoleum is the bomb when it comes to their products. In fact, I'm on my way to buy more RUSTOLEUM Read More

The etching is not a cleaning process but a means to prep the concrete surface for better contact with the epoxy. I applied the epoxy 2 1/2 years ago and have had no hot tire pull-ups.

We would advise etching the concrete surface, even if it is new.
Concrete Etch creates a surface profile that allows for maximum penetration and adhesion.

Answer: 
Using the roller from the rest of the floor on the cuts was insufficient. I filled my floor cuts by using a small brush to get the coating all the way down there, as opposed to using sealer volume to fill them. The surface texture in the cuts is the same as the rest of the floor

According to the user manual, walking time is 12-16 hours. Normal walking, heavy items 24-48 hours. Full cure + vehicle use 3 days. All give or take for weather conditions.
I did notice the dvd video stated 1 week for vehicle traffic, so I erred on the side of caution and let it sit for a week with no foot or vehicle traffic at all.

You will know as the dampness post-wash will darken the appearance of your existing floor. Once the floor has dried uniformly you will not see the dark patches. Time will vary based on your local weather conditions. I would give it as least a day during the summer season.

Answer: 
The concrete floor will need to be completely dry prior to applying Rust-Oleum EpoxyShield Garage Floor Coating. The actual dry time will depend on the level of humidity and air temperature. The coating should be applied when the air temperature is between 60-85 degrees. The humidity level should not be exceed 85%.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 183 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very good product For your project to be successfull, you must be ready to do a good washing ,degreasing and etching of your garage floor. After that, follow instructions about temperatures and you will be fine. I was able to complete this project with no previous painting experience. Now my garage look very good. July 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 100% Satisfied I was hesitant in buying this product based on the various reviews. I spent 1 day cleaning the garage floor. I first swept and then vacuumed the cracks of all debris. Next I used Krud Kutter (product from Home Depot) and a hard bristle scrub brush to clean the entire garage floor. Once thoroughly scrubbed, I used our pressure washer to rinse. Day 2 I rinsed the garage floor with the garden hose to Etch. Once this process was thoroughly done, I squeegeed the floor and put 3 fans on to dry the floor. That evening, I did a few minor concrete patches. I continued to use the fans to dry the garage floor. Day 3 I rolled the Epoxy Shield and added the decorative paint chips. I again used 3 fans to dry the floor. After reading numerous articles, I found that adding a topcoat is best in preventing paint peel or hot tire pick up. I purchased the Rock-Solid Clear Topcoat from Home Depot. The Top Coat cost more than the Epoxy Shield Garage Floor Coating Kit ($149). It also states that the Top Coat will cover 200 - 250 sq. feet. My garage is 500 sq. feet. I found that I was able to use only 1 pouch to cover my entire garage floor. I waited 4 days for drying time. I have driven both cars on and off the garage floor after running errands into town and there is absolutely no paint peeling or hot tire pick up. All in all I invested $301.41. The key is to do a thorough scrub down of your garage floor and adding the topcoat. I highly recommend both products (2 GAL. 2-PART HIGH-GLOSS EPOXY GARAGE FLOOR COATING KIT AND ROCK-SOLID CLEAR TOPCOAT). July 4, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Need to redo the garage. I followed the instructions to the T. I even waited a day and had fans running to dry the garage. But after a few months mine has started to peel and come off. I need to do it again but I don't want to waste the money unless I know why it peeled off. I know it works. I've helped friends to paint their garages. June 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by For those who can't etch or new concrete Results will vary and if you can do the etch you really should. But with new concrete and if water does not bead up you will be OK This is a interior work room addition so I could not etch because I couldn't use a lot of water or hose due to my new drywall. Drywall had just been mud and sanded so lots of junk on the floor. That's OK just clean it well. I used a trowel and just scrapped the blobs off the floor. I swept well and mopped twice with a cheap 10$ mop and a water bucket. Dust was took care of and only slight traces where the blobs were. Temp was 68° . I Let dry 4 hours after mopping. And waited the proper induction time after mixing with this temp. My concrete is not smooth flat, my beagle ran across my slab I noticed a couple hours later so we had to spray it down and try to level with a 2x4. You will see this in the photos. This is why it looks like it has lines in it . the epoxy covered it very well for the base slab condition. May 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install This is very and simple to paint. I will update review after 1 year to see how it looks like. Now these are not in boxes. Instead coming in the bags (pouches). If you see any video, you will see containers. One thing I have observed is need to clean/wash floor 1 day before only. April 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Great product! It was very easy to use and very easy to apply. I have a 2 car garage and it was more than enough of paint and color chips. Preparation is the key, the actual application is just like painting a wall. Tips: - Make sure you have an even surface, this is just like paint so you will see through the imperfections. - Don't be afraid of using a good amount of paint (don't be scared you will run out of paint). I was being a bit conservative and had some leftovers but my floor could have used a bit of a thicker layer of pain for the imperfections, still looks amazing. Totally recommend March 8, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by amazing coverage I would consider 5 stars for this product but I still doesn't look as good as the sales display in store. I bought one of these and a rocksolid kit also-both up to 500 sq. ft. coverage. This one did 360 sq. ft. of broom finished fresh (120 day old) concrete. Rocksolid better be 20x better as it will cost you nearly 10x more than this for mediocre results...I only got 120 sq, ft. out of a 2 bag box and felt like I was stretching it! This is not a reflection on Home Depot but the advertising in store that got me to try both. I have attached pics of my soon to be completed garage slab-the 3 darker areas are 120 sq. ft. blocks covered with epoxyshield. The lighter one is rocksolid...you be the judge. Keep in mind it is fresh concrete and a rough broom finish. The rear 4 sections were done with a less expensive concrete stain. February 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful Floor This Is a long lasting floor paint that will give you excellent results. Have had this product on this floor for almost 6 years, and it was time to redo it. The Paint itself did not peel up from the floor, It just needed to be redone to improve the look. After cleaning the floor, Paint was applied according to the directions, adding the color chips as we rolled it down. After 36 hours the floor was walked on, and the finish is outstanding. This product is proven, and we are looking forward to using it for all of our floor finish needs. February 10, 2016
