A Complete Kit

There are a lot of good epoxy products, good primers and good top coats on the market. As a consumer you are left to read through a bunch of hype, bait and switch low prices and a lot of misinformation. What you need is a professionally selected garage floor epoxy system. We do millions of dollars in garage flooring each year. We have taken that knowledge and experience and utilized it to build a garage floor epoxy kit that will give you the best chance for success.

Ready for Prime Time

A garage floor epoxy system needs to have a primer. It’s that simple. It is a scientific fact that epoxy floor coating systems that utilize a primer have a stronger bond, are less prone to failure, are more DIY friendly and have less installation related issues. Imagine spending 3 days installing your dream floor, only to have it ruined by air bubbles. A primer fixes that. Imagine having it removed by a hot tire. A primer and proper prep fixes that as well. A primer is a very low cost and easy to install component that greatly increases the likelihood of success with epoxy. It is included in these kits.

Surface Preparation

There are many concrete etching solutions out there. In our opinion there are four options for preparing a garage floor for epoxy. Etching solutions are not one of them. The most common solution is an acid etch using diluted Muriatic acid. This option works well on relatively clean floors that are in good shape and have never been sealed. If working with acid scares you, we offer a more expensive buffered acid etching solution.

Grinding is perhaps the best bet when it comes to preparing a garage floor. Rental centers have the Diamabrush product on hand and if you are unable to locate one locally we have them available. The most aggressive method is shot blasting and this is overkill for this specific system. A good garage floor epoxy system requires proper floor preparation. If you do not want to etch or grind, we suggest the Rust Bullet Garage Floor Coating System. Epoxy will fail if you do not properly etch or grind.

High Solids Vs 100% Solids Epoxy

The mass marketing of watered down epoxy flooring products to the DIY market has forced high end garage floor epoxy manufacturers and dealers to differentiate themselves. One way this is done is by talking about the benefits of 100% solids epoxy. The truth is a true 100% solids epoxy is very difficult for the average customer to install properly. On the flip side, cheap garage floor epoxy consisting of mostly water or solvent is nothing more than what we sell as primer. There has to be a balance, right?

Our two-part garage floor epoxy system has a Part “A” and a Part “B”. The Part “A” is the epoxy resin and the Part “B” is the hardener. Our Part “A”, the epoxy resin, is 100% solids. The Part “B” hardener has a small amount of solvents mixed in. This allows for ease of application, longer pot life and better adhesion. Many companies would call this system 100% solids. The truth is it is 93% solids by weight which creates the ideal combination of thickness, durability and ease of installation. If you truly need 100% solids, we sell plenty of it. But ask yourself “why?” Is it because you really need it, or because you have bought into the salesmanship the industry has out there.

Single Component Aliphatic Urethane Topcoat

Now you have a primed floor that has been coated with a high quality epoxy. Can you leave it at that? Although we sell a system without topcoat for special applications and California compliance, we believe a quality aliphatic urethane topcoat is essential to the performance of your garage floor epoxy system.

Our urethane increases UV resistance and prevents yellowing. Increases chemical resistance, resistance to tires and makes the floor look amazing. In short, a good aliphatic urethane topcoat is the essential final step in any epoxy garage floor coating project! It is VOC compliant in every state except California.

More Info

 

One of the most common questions we have is recoat times. Our suggestions are as follows — based on 70 degree temperature:

  • Prime the floor (TL015): THEN Wait 7-10 Hours but Never more than 24 Hours.
  • Epoxy Coat (TL707HS): THEN Wait 8-12 HOurs but never more than 24 hours
  • Top Coat (TL356): Then Wait 9-13 hours before any additional coats. 24 hours for very light foot traffic and 7 days for full use.

The following chemical resistance chart is based on TL356 topcoated floors. If you do not use a topcoat or if you use a different top coat, the results will vary substantially.
