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

It will not damage the finish, IF this product is installed on concrete which was never before sealed, water proofed, painted or stained. If the concrete has had any of these done, look at the Industrial Grade - Solvent based version of this product.

Answer: 
As long as you can etch and wash it prior to the application , it should be fine . It needs to be dry by the time you are ready to apply . Temp is your major concern , so chosing when to do it is critical

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.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 55 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 16, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Unsure Not ready to apply the product. From others I've seen, it looks good. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good product I read all the reviews, and they helped me make my decision on this product. It was easy to apply on my garage floor. Follow the instructions about temperatures not only on the day you plan to epoxied your garage floor, but on the temperature the following days. July 5, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed I bought this product to paint the floor in my new workshop. The instructions were very clear that only one coat would be needed. Wrong! I clearly needed at least two coats. I can see every single place where each section overlapped, per the 'wet edge' instructions. My floor looks horrible. It will serve to keep my only floor from generating concrete dust, but it is definitely not the look I was going for. I am torn between living with it and buying another set to try to fix this one. I hate to give them more of my money. August 30, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Garage Floor Refurb Finished beautifully. i put 2 coats down. 1st coat needed more than one package for my garage. in total, i used about 4.5 gallons of paint to get 2 nice coats in my 2.5 car garage. October 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best floor covering This is the 3rd time I have been using this 2-part High-Gloss epoxy garage floor coating kit. The paint last several years before it needs a recoat. I am so pleased that this newer product dries in just 3 days before i drive my vehicle back onto it.. It is so easy to clean and two of my friends are so impressed with it that they are cleaning out their garages to paint the floors. As soon as it quits raining here in Colorado Springs, CO. I plan on painting the other side of the garage floor. July 11, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst product ever We purchased this for a front porch 33' x 6'. Purchased two kits which cost 159.00 ea. Prepared the surface exactly as instructed. Put two coats on and let it traffic free for 3 weeks. Applied the product in late summer. In one month it already began peeling. Now after winter it is peeling across the whole porch. Now we will have to strip or sand off the stuff before we can do something else. We purchased this product based on the reviews and Home Depot employees. Expensive mistake at best. April 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Garage floor This is my third time using this product. It always does a great job. It is one of the best things you can do for a garage. Great product. April 19, 2016
