Re: Easter Project - Epoxy Garage Floor

@drew I have to agree with @MartyH here. Paving paint would definitely be the way to go. From memory the epoxy paint isn’t recommended for outdoor use as well.

Re: Easter Project - Epoxy Garage Floor

I found a when I did mine that sun from my garage windows cause degassing and bubbles in the area the sun was hitting the concrete.

The fix is to sand them out between coats, Man I can’t believe how hard this stuff goes after just 36 hours as I was there for hours using 40 Grit on my orbital sander and it was barely touching the surface, anyway it was worth it and the sencond coat was fantastic.

I thought I’d share for anyone else. If I did it again I’d cover my windows so there was no direct sun on the concrete and would save me some elbow grease

Great tip @Seaton. Many thanks for sharing. I'm sure your input will be valued as there are so many people interested in epoxy floors for their garage and/or workshop.
