I have three Rustolium Epoxy kits for my garage. I have cleaned the floor
with Simple Green and removed all oil and etc with degreaser, oven cleaner
and whatever else I could find to get rid of it. :)
I have filled all cracks and joints with Polyurethane Concrete Self Leveling
Will the mild acid cleaner that comes with the kit hurt the patch I just
used? If so can I do another mild Simple Green then apply the paint? It's
still too cold to put down and the patch hasn't cured 100% yet.
Do NOT apply without the acid etch! If you do not etch the floor you are
just asking for trouble!
Epoxy is great stuff if done right. If you screw up the aplication you will
have a peeling mess of epoxy that will be a real bitch to fix.
Follow the directions, don't cut any corners!
I worked for a company that sold industrial floor coatings. One customer
cheated on the aplication so the epoxy started to peel. He finally had
someone come in with a sand blaster to clean the epoxy off the floor and he
did it over!
It's been curing for over a week now and it is still soft and mushy
feeling. How long does it take for this stuff to cure? I'm about ready to
take back the Epoxy and get a refund as this sealer looks like it will never
I don't have the answer to the real question, but my friend had her
floor painted several months ago. The disadvantage is that snow or rain
that drips off the car doesn't get absorbed by the concrete, so it
remains in puddles for a long time. Just something to consider.
