    What about Drylok what do i put that on with?
    100% solids epoxy floor paint: mix, pour, lay it off with a roller. Watch the video's they show the process.

    Unless they have a product I don't know, about Drylok is for below grade walls. That's a whole different ball game.

    Drylok is only good to 10 psi. Which might be enough for your application, but a 10 psi rating is not very high.

    It is applied by brush or roller.

    I suggest: Zinsser Water Tite, for that application. It's good to 34 psi.

    I have applied aprox. 50 gallons of this stuff since it came out, and it has never failed. It also is one of the few cement paints, (they have cement in them, that's how they work), that produces a smooth finish. It is oil based, and it does have a minerals spirits odor. You need to be able to ventilate the area. This can be accomplished by renting some blowers.

    Thanks for posting Joe. I was wondering the same thing. My last house I was used rust oleum kit and it was great but I never parked on it. I went to do my garage this past spring and went to buy kit. Got bogged down in reviews and gave up.

    I never thought of posting here. Great info.

    I used PPG Aquapon 35 in part of my shop. 2.5 years later none has failed. I don't do welding in that area so I cannot tell you how it reacts to heat. I have dragged 1000# plus lathes and milling machines across the floor with only surface scratches as a result. None has peeled up. It is only available to pros as far as I know, my industrial/commercial painter freind picked it up for me.

    whatever you use, prep is everything. I pressure washed the floor 3 times until 100% of the water was clear. I let it dry an the acid etched it. Pressure washed again and let it dry for a few days before coating.
