Anyone ever used that rust-oleum garage floor coating they sell at home depot and has any idea how long it takes to cure? Any horror stories of people who used it?

my dad got some stuff that works great but i think it was more of an industrial type stuff. it went on real thick and took like 2 days to dri in the summer time but it came out awesome. spills and drips clean up with a dri rag and it doesn't stain either. i'll see if i can find out what it was.


MissS:no now!!!

MissS: I changed my mind

bambam: see MissS: well, you have a few hours

MissS: I'm a female, allowed to do it

I assume you are talking about the epoxy with the little flakes you spread around?

I used the interior floor one in my work room. Other than messing up the coat thickness in a few spots it looks great. It has been down for about 2 months and no problems.

As for the garage stuff - too cold now if your garage is not heated. It takes two days above 60 degrees to settle (I am pretty sure about that).

I have some already and I am waiting for the weather to get warm again before I put it down.
I'll let you know how it works out, but I am happy with the interior stuff so far.

Yeah please let me know how it works out AR. Ive heard that it works a lot better on concrete that is several years old, that it comes off easier on relatively fresh concrete.

For me it would be more convenient to do it now than later, but its not worth risking it coming off in a few months. Really I wouldent want to do it unless it lasted several years.

I've tried it all, Doug. Sherwin-Williams sell this stuff for about $100 per gallon but works great IF the floor is treated properly before. We had to "etch" it with acid first, then lay the paint. It works real good. Battery acid, carb/brake cleaner, brake fluid, nothing seems to hurt it. It's expensive as hell but works great.

talked to my dad today and he couldnt remember the name of the stuff he used but said it's a 2 part process. the first one is a cleaner and the second the paint so it sounds like it might be similar to what james is talkin about. hope it helps . good luck.

It's great stuff Doug.
You need to apply it when the humidity is low.
The concrete needs to be etched with mircuric acid.
Then it's a 2-3 step process.
ususaaly if it doesn't stick it's usually because the concrete wasn't treated properly.
We use it all the time in the hangars...works awesome.
I'm gonna do my garage this spring...

The home depot stuff comes with an acidic cleaner....after you clean the floor normally. I am not sure if it is Muriatic Acid (hydrochloric acid) or not...Muriatic Acid is the stuff they use to clean pools...i used to drive a chemical truck and delivered it. Schirmer's in Falls Church sells it.

Anyway, you clean your floors, then you clean it with their cleaner, then you mix the paint stuff (1 gallon and a pint of whatever) and apply. Then the fun part of the sprinkles.


For a cheap terrorist bomb mix muriatic acid with chlorine...primitive form of Mustard Gas.

Strong acid + strong base (in quantity) = bad things.

Do not ask me how I know.......



I am here to help.
