Garage Floor Coatings

I know they are common, but what do you reccomend? We used to have one in our race shop, it was great becaase spill cleanups were easy, and the stuff was hard to damage. I currently run wvo, and will be making b100 soon, and an exxon occurs every now and then and its hard to clean off that smooth concrete.

Reccomendations? I did a brief google and found "ucoat", about 44c a sq ft. ill do more research but figured it best to ask those who have expirience.

Thanks

!

We have the Rustoleum epoxy shield in our shop and it has stood up very well to the abuse we give it.

polished concrete... best thing on the market hands down.
No paint to peel break chip or fade. the stuff is used in every major warehouse on the planet. tow motors cant even hurt it. its also stainable, and pretty darn cheap imho
I did my office with it. its friggen indestructible. last thing contrary to most peoples belief its not slippery

This is the stuff I used ...Concrete Sealer - Concrete Floor Sealer - Concrete Densifier
Also on my floor I added some Black stain for a marblized look
this stuff is no less than amazing. not many people know about/trust it so I found it hard to find information about it. I had to search my a?s off. Ill look for some pics to post.

In fact do a google search for "Polished concrete" or Concrete densifier"
their are some amazing photos. but dont get tricked into buying a sealer. this stuff is not "SEALER" I believe their are only a hand full of companies that sell the "Densifier"
The process is easy. Clean the concrete. Pour on the densifier let it sit for 1 hour Making sure it stays wet aka no dried in spots. then vacuum/mop up the excess then let it dry 24 hours ... and its hard as woodpeckers lips. Stain afterwards. but beware if you want it to shine like glass (And I swear it will) you will have to polish it to the luster you want. once done, no maintenance is necessary at all. never ever wax it just mop clean with mild soap.

Does this count as a MOD to my Home office?
