    Q:Can I use this as a primer then put Rust-Oleum epoxy shield over top of it?
    by|Sep 29, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  The Armor Epoxy is a two-part water-based primer that's compatible with industrial two-part epoxy and polyurethane coatings; Foundation Armor has not tested this product as a primer for Rust-Oleum Epoxy Shield. Please consult with Rustoleum's technical support for a recommended primer or test with the Armor Epoxy to confirm results prior to full application.

      Q:Is This Epoxy for Concrete floors and can you mix with other paints, tints PR metallic colors
      by|Nov 23, 2022
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  The Armor Epoxy is used on concrete surfaces but cannot be mixed with paints, tints or metallic additives. What you are describing would be a high solids, two part epoxy(a thicker product). The Armor UTN60 is a urethane coating that can be tinted(solid color finish) but it's applied thin so metallic and flake options are unavailable.

          I must qualify my very high rating as specific only to the buying, support, and application experiences. Like most reviews of these types of materials, only time will tell how well (or poorly) the product works. This is my first time using any product like this. The application was on 70 year old, poured concrete, foundation walls in my home basement with no type of paints, coatings, sealants, etc. It was original, raw, concrete. During very heavy rains, the hydro-static pressure forced moisture through the concrete in places, causing effervescence. I used the Epoxy upon advice from Foundation Armor technical support (Mike) who was very responsive, helpful and knowledgeable. It is obvious that he has field experience applying their products. It is not an inexpensive product, and Mike's help gave me the confidence I knew what I was doing. The product brushes on the wall milky white. It made it very easy to see where I had good coverage and whether or not all the pores and cracks got filled. There was some odor, but not too bad. I may have been applying too much of the epoxy, but I found some of it ran down the wall and pooled along the floor. Most of it stayed up on the wall though. I backtracked every so often and wiped the pooled material back up on the wall. I found that once it started to set/cure and became a little thicker, I could smear it on the deeper cracks, holes and rough spots and it stayed in place nicely. It drys to glossy clear. There will be painted drywall in front of it, so I don't care what it looks like. But if left exposed, it would make it hard to tell if the wall is wet because the whole wall looks wet. I wish I had more info about how it performed 5 years later, but sorry, you'll have to wait just like me.

            Great Initial Impression!
            I laid this on top of a Behr 1-part Epoxy coat that had been applied to a house we purchased. Previous coat had dried for a month so I cleaned it well & decided not to do further prep work since the floor had some texture to it. Epoxy laid down nicely with a white initial appearance making it easy to tell the application was even. Made sure to do a thin coat & it appears to have cured really nicely, no sign of softness or tire pull up once I put cars on it after a week or so.

                It Works!
                I had a basement room that had some moisture vapor coming through the cement walls or floor. I used this on both the walls and floor in the Spring and have had no noticeable moisture during the Summer. Applied it with a roller and it went on easily. I would recommend not to use a thick a roller since it is water-like. I used one coat. It dried fast and I applied an epoxy paint over it per the instructions. Customer service was helpful with my application questions.

                  Great Product/Great Company
                  Application was easy. Low Odor. Foundation Armor employees were extremely helpful and courteous. I would definitely recommend the company and the product.

                    I thought the Foundation Armor Epoxy system worked great.
                    First I cleaned both the concrete block walls and the concrete floor with Muriatic acid. The Muriatic acid drew out a bunch more inflorescence that I could not even see when I started cleaning. Next I neutralized the acid with an ammonia water solution. I wanted everything as clean as possible before I put the epoxy coating onto the surface. The epoxy mixed real easy. Went on great. I put two coats on quickly as per the directions. There was a little inflorescence on the block when I cleaned it. When I was done the walls and floors had a nice sheen to them. Great product. Only issue is that as with most every time I buy paint I ended up with a lot more product than I needed based on the recommendations. However, I am definitely a better to much than too little guy.
