i have finished treating my basement floor with xypex (this is a
crystalline waterproofer like dry-lock). xypex has a rough texture when
it dries and ive heard may powder under foot traffic. i'm not shooting
for a smooth as glass floor, but i don't want it to feel like a grinder
wheel like it does now.
xypex also has a bit of an inconsistent look to it, which i like, so i
want to coat it with something clear. i prefer a dull finish, not
according to the xypex website:
Can paint and other finishing materials be applied over a Xypex
Yes. Paint epoxy coatings, cement parge coats, plaster and stucco can
be applied or installed over a Xypex coating. For detailed
instructions, please refer to pp. 31 and 73 of the Xypex "Specification
and Application Manual"
can anyone with relevant experience make a suggestion for my further
research? the floor is about 300 sq/ft., decent venting, the area gets
medium foot traffic, but certain items may cause extra wear (sliding
chairs, work benches) and the floor will be largely uncovered.
