Sealing Concrete Floor

Hi,
I would like to use part of the garage as a work area. What would you recommend to seal the concrete floor that will make cleaning easier? Thanks for your suggestions.
Regards,
Shyamal

Floor paint is an easy answer. Etch with muratic acid first and it'll hold just fine. I haven't used it, but when buying my paint last month I saw a floor paint specifically for garages that is suppose to wear well even with car tire traffic.

I suggest the "epoxy" type garage floor paint. It works great for me.

May I ask which brand do you use? I am setting up to epoxy 1200 sq. ft of basment floor but cannot decide which type of epoxy and where to buy it from. I am not willing to pull the trigger without some solid recommendations (it would be nice to hear from anyone who has had an epoxy coated floor for a long time - say 5 years or longer).

Thanks, Jim

i used the epoxy product from home depot in my basement (by rustoleum). they make a kit for garage and another one for basement. if i remember correctly the garage one has an additional step for removing oil and grease before applying, while the basement one was just a "wash the floor first" prep.
i was very impressed with the results and it was quite easy to do. can't vouch for the longevity, as i only did it a month or so ago, but it seems very durable. we're using it as the floor of our new work-out area. cost $35, cheap solution! it helps to have 2 people, one to roll & the other to toss the (optional) confetti.
