Concrete sealer
« on: September 09, 2014, 06:37:05 PM »
Going to be pouring concrete in our garage. Was thinking about using the two part epoxy floor sealer like so.http://www.getnewlook.com/Epoxy100.html
My concern is, if I weld will hot sparks/molted steel bubble the sealer? Also won't it be very slippery when slight water and oil is present? Any other options?

For a garage floor I'd use a non film forming curing agent to dust proof/seal the concrete. It won't be slick ,it won't be affected by sparks/hot metal,it will not shine since it does not form a film. Right Carl? Ask your concrete supplier or a trusted contractor in your area to see what is available.

Lithium or sodium densifier, burnish it in with buffing machine or polish it in with diamond pads.  Going finer and finer grit.  But just spraying it til it no longer absorbs, will provide a sealed floor against water oil and the absolute worst possible thing, brake fluid.  Its what most big box store with concrete floors do.

Epoxy is slick as owl shit when wet, will yellow from sunlight and could melt from real hot slag.

2 pt urethane would be another good choice, durable and UV stable. 

Standard acrylic sealers are a ok choice, but not happy with gas and brake fluid. 


Come to LS next week, this is epoxy metallic I put in trailer.

I would love to. But... Andersen's Windows distribution center is five days behind on there shipments. Which means I volunteered to work every weekend till Christmas.  Great for money intake, bad for fun. Hoping once things slow down to get garage floor done and spray foam.
