Hello rob and thank you for your question.
For best results, you will need to use both. After mixing the epoxy, you have between 1-2 hours to use the mixture – standing times will vary depending upon temperature. One person can begin trimming the edges of the floor (if desired) and another person can begin rolling out the floor as specified on the charts: Read More
Hello rob and thank you for your question.
For best results, you will need to use both. After mixing the epoxy, you have between 1-2 hours to use the mixture – standing times will vary depending upon temperature. One person can begin trimming the edges of the floor (if desired) and another person can begin rolling out the floor as specified on the charts: http://rustoleum.com/cbgimages/documents/ES_Garage.pdf.
Use a good quality synthetic brush to trim the edges. Use a 1/2" nap roller cover and 9" roller frame to apply an even coat of EPOXYSHIELD onto the garage surface.
The label also lists the best time of day to start this project to ensure best curing conditions. Be sure to follow all instructions and wear proper safety equipment for best results.
Best wishes on your new garage floor. Read Less

Answer: 
Rust-Oleum actually has a product specifically for basement floors. The model # is 203844 and comes in gray or tan.
It is a water-based coating, but for ultimate safety the pilot light should be turned off.
You can leave a window open or use a fan to help circulate the air in the room as needed.

2 gal. Tan 2-Part High-Gloss Epoxy Garage Floor Coating Kit is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 58.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product for Basement I used this on a concrete basement floor that was probably painted 40 plus years ago..hard to say. It covers nicely. Dries hard, doesn't seem like it will chip easily. It does have an odor, but fades in a day or so. I felt like there wasn't enough flake in the kit to give adequate coverage. I do like it a little heavier to cover imperfections. I used both bags included on an area less than 300 sq ft, and the kit says its for 500 sq feet. The flake would have to be super light to cover that area.

I applied with a roller and a brush and it came out with a great gloss look. I opted not to use the chips included for a cleaner look. Definitely needed 2 coats. Be sure to wait the 24 hours between applications. Overall it's a good product. I just bought another kit for the basement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Used in my 2 car garage. Cant say it would do 2 1/2 because I was running out in the end. It was put on a 65 degree day and was turning very thick at the end. The time was right at the 2 hour limit they gave. I did not mix one at a time but put both in a large bucket to keep the color consistent. Had I follwed directions of one at a time I would not be so rushed and maybe would not come close to running out as it would have been put on thinner, knowing my middle point. Who knows? Also recommend buying some extra paint chips to throw as I ran out but not a big deal, probably put on to heavy also but I like the look of them. Only installed a week so no report on durability but looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MUST READ!! VERY IMPORTANT!!! Many reviewers have made the statement that they used this product several years ago and it worked perfectly, but when used today, they have had numerous issues. First off, this is NOT the same product as 5 Plus years ago, and understanding the difference is the key to your success (and prep of course). This is a Water Based Product. REPEAT: This is a Water Based Product. The older Product was a Solvent Based, HUGE Difference, no matter what anyone says. With the older product, as long as there was no oil on the concrete, and you etched it, it came out great. However, with a Water Based Product, MANY other factors come into play. If The Concrete has been painted before, do NOT Etch it. All you will do is loosen up the old paint and everything will start to peel off down the road. If the concrete had been previously SEALED, Stop, return this product, and look for the Solvent based solution. Still made by Rust Oleum, still called Epoxy Shield, but also says "INDUSTRIAL GRADE PERFORMANCE - Two Part SOLVENT Epoxy". Home Depot still carries it, but usually only here on their web site. If you have ANY doubt about the condition of the concrete (previous sealed, painted, stained, etc), I would order the Industrial Grade Solvent Based product. If your concrete is at least 30 days, never been sealed or had anything done to it, then this product will work, but ONLY if you read the directions, watch the Video, Repeat, come back the next day, do that again, prep the floor for a day, give it a day to dry, ensure the temperature will stay within parameters, then proceed. AND this goes for ALL Water Based 2 Part Epoxy Systems. If you have ever tried to paint Silicone around a window (not caulking), you know latex / water based paint will never stick to it, NEVER. If your floor has been sealed or water proofed, Latex Paint will NEVER stick to it, NEVER. I have personally used this product on 11 garage floors, one was 2000 square feet, and I have NEVER had one SINGLE issue!! No Hot Tire, No Peeling, Nothing!!! Last but not least, 6 months or a year down the road, when the floor does not have the same "High Gloss" it did before. Mop the floor, let it dry, then go down the cleaning isle at Home Depot and grab a gallon of ZEP Wet Look Floor Polish (Under $25), pour a 1/4 cup ((I personally just pour some out) (looks like milk) on a section of the floor, and use an old mop or microfiber cleaner to spread it around. DON'T put it on thick, nice thin coat, do this on the entire floor, wait 30 minutes and repeat. 7 or those garage floors were for clients of mine, and 5 of those guys do this at least once every 6 months. A gallon will last you a couple years, so it is a very inexpensive way to make the floor look exactly, if not better than when you first did it. If your floor came out with a little discoloration initially (because you went over paint that was drying - Not Good), it can be fixed by mopping on some Wet Look Floor Sealer. Don't get me wrong, this product is nothing more than "makeup" for your floor. I am NOT saying to use it over the proper Rust Oleum product when you first do the floor. The wet look stuff is only for after the floor is done, and only IF you want it to shine gain. If it did not shine before, it will with this stuff. HOPEFULLY this will help someone out before they make the same mistake as so many other people have. Best of Luck!! CHEERS!!! G

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DIY Epoxy Floor looks Awesome!!! I just applied this product to my 2.5 car garage over the long weekend. So far I am very pleased with the results. The biggest part of this project is the PREP. This process was 80% preparation (washing/etching/drying), 20% application. It comes with two 1-gallon paint cans that you mix with two small epoxy cans. My garage is 25' x 20' and there was just the right amount for my 500 sf garage. First, you have to clean the garage really well. I rented a floor maintainer/buffer with sand disks (60 grit). I bought a gallon of floor degreaser/etcher and used that first. Scrubbed, washed, squeegeed and dried. Next I used the floor maintainer and then use the concrete etch that is included. Repeat the steps again. Paint the garage in 4' x 4' sections, sprinkle the chips provided, and move to the next section (I bought an extra bag of paint chips). You have to work quickly, because after mixing, you have about an hour to use the epoxy. I put all my stuff back into the garage after 14 hours. Just wait 3 to 7 days before driving on it. I added a painted border and some white trim to make the garage like a normal room. We spend a lot of time in the garage at my house. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase and well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plan your work...work your plan and you will LOVE the results! Start time: 7:00am Temp: 76° Humidity: 50% Project: 400 square feet Kit: 2 ½ car garage stock tan Finish time: 8:00am I am a professional decorative painter and tried this product application for the first time today. I read many of the reviews here prior to application and found them very helpful. Thought I would share my experience with the product and help the next person. First…watch the video and then read the directions. Then…watch the video again and read the directions! Do you get that you need to follow the directions? If you just watch the video, you don’t get the full picture of how timing is so important to achieving a professional result. The waiting time for the paint to cure is very important. Figure out your skill level, and then decide if you need to have a second person to help you. When you wash the surface, time yourself and see how long it takes. That is a benchmark for how long it will take you to roll the paint and throw the confetti chips. Also ask yourself if you can multi task (cutting in, rolling, throwing chips in the air, and mixing paint all at the same time while maintaining a wet edge on the surface). I didn’t have a problem doing 400 sq ft by myself (and I had to stop in the middle and prep the second can, and time that for a 15 minute wait time). I called the Rustoleum help line before I started the project as I was doing a floor that had two different coats of paint and I wanted to make sure my thoughts were correct before going crazy with either a concrete grinder or a floor sander. So after power washing the floor with a degreaser, I opted to rent a floor sander and just gave it really good sanding for a couple of hours to take off the poorly bonded peeling top coat of paint. Finished off the edges (per Rustoleum advice) with a wire brush. Also IF YOU HAVE A PAINTED SURFACE DO NOT USE THE ETCHING CLEANER INCLUDED WITH THE KIT. You will weaken the paint and ruin your project. Damp mop after that and make sure you have a dust free surface. I combined the two base cans the day before my project and poured them back into their containers respectively per the instructions to get them ready for the morning application. It is a bit messy and why not start the morning without that headache. Get yourself two paint tray liners and have backup roller and cutting brush just in case something goes awry. Use a kitchen timer to time the wait time for the mixing of the paint. Have some nitrile gloves handy to use when mixing the paint, as you don’t want sticky paint on your hands while you are trying to throw confetti chips. Little tips that can make the experience more fun and less stressful. As for the chips…put them in separate containers, and go easy at first to see how much they cover. I felt that the included two bags were perfect for 400 sq feet (and do follow the 4’x4’ painting pattern to the letter). You will get the feel for how much to throw this way. I also put blue painters tape on perpendicular walls every 4 feet to guide me in the application process of paint and chip coverage. Buy a few extra bags of chips if you want it heavier or if you spill them, etc… – you can always return them, and nothing says “do it yourself” more than running out of chips and leaving bare spots. As for paint coverage of this 400 sq foot project, I had 2/3 of a can left, but the floor was ultra smooth. Plan out your project well and you will be thrilled with the results.
