Epoxy Garage Floors

I recently expanded into epoxy garage floors. For those of you that do epoxy floors, which products do you use (what % of solids) and what are the pros and cons of the product you use.

Re: Epoxy Garage Floors

Assuming you know what you are doing you would probably be best going for an epoxy self leveller, quicker and easier. 3m thickness should be enough and it comes in many colours.

Re: Epoxy Garage Floors

I have used this stuff a couple times at an old job. Didn't really pay much attention to the thickness or the type. But what I can tell you is I love the stuff. I recommand you do the whole area your self we had 4 different people working on the floors and it sometimes turned out strange due to the fact different people use different presser when rolling and make sure the floor is clean clean clean. we would spend 3 days of cleaning just to make sure it was VERY clean...Ever try a quartz floor BLAH

Re: Epoxy Garage Floors

Quartz is usually about 4mm due to the aggregate. Good strong floor suitable for factories and available now in some great colourways.
Would take longer though cos it needs to be sealed.
