I have used Rustoleum and U-Coat epoxy and both had tire lift. For the new house, I have been looking at the plastic tiles and stick down tiles. Anyone have any input or experience with any of these? My concern with the tiles is that it won't be as easy to spray down and clean the floor.

I have been looking at these items.

Since you, Ken, and I all have the same questions, maybe we need to post a thread in the general forums. Since this isnt a local issue, we can get input from the whole damn SCMC community (priceless!).

I put two coats of ShrwinWilliams marine epoxy on mine. It's been down 6 years now and I have had no problems. My son-in-law said they used it at his store in the area that was driven over with fork lifts.

Good point, maybe someone can move it.

ARMORSEAL® 1000 HS EPOXY

ArmorSeal 1000 HS is a high solids, heavy duty, two-component, catalyzed, polyamide epoxy coating formulated for demanding marine and industrial requirements. This dries rapidly to a tough, high gloss finish with excellent resistance to alkalies, abrasion, corrosion, and chemical attack.

A few people I have talked to mentioned using it. Sounds like some tough stuff.

My Dad and Uncles used it on their longliners. Good stuff. Lasts.

So even at, say, 200.00 / Gal @ 2 Gal / Garage Bay; - is still not bad knowing it is not likely needing a re-do every other year. :thumbsup:

Locking tiles, good ones ( 4-6 / Sq. Ft. ) and the edge trims, can run about 800 - 1200 per car bay.

Can you mix flakes with it to give it "that" look or just solid colors ?

I'm not sure if you can add flakes?

It's a matte finish. The only time it gets slippery is when I was it down with soap ;)

LOL! Great! Like nothing ever happened! Just like before it ever happened! LOL! :rolleyes: Actually I have been back to work for nearly a month, just no heavy lifting.

When we did our epoxy floors at Texan Lincoln Mercury we did certain sections with sand added to the mix.

It seemed to hold up pretty good, but the parts without it were pretty slick when wet, at least when it was new.

just called Sherwin-Williams in Spring on the Armorseal 1000 HS Epoxy:

Without an account the kit(which includes a gallon of part A and a gallon of part B) costs $350

WITH an account the kit would cost around $150-180

Each kit will cover about 200-250 square feet.

The guy said it would be VERY easy to set up an account, just open a cash account. He does not stock this as he would need a few weeks to get in.
