    Looking for some ideas on Garage floor..Post pictures of yours and how you did it.

    Im Looking at Legacy HD6600 right now for my main floor , and acid staining for some of the jam room...

    Legacy HD 6600 is a sealer...

    HD6600 is a non-yellowing, Water Based Epoxy-Acrylic designed for interior concrete sealing applications. HD6600™ Sealer is a high solids coating that provides a superior high gloss finish to a multitude of interior horizontal or vertical concrete and masonry finishes. HD6600™ Sealer is self-crosslinking, which provides better film formation, early water resistance, adhesion, toughness and outstanding efflorescence and alkali resistance. It can be applied to green concrete. HD6600™Sealer provides enhanced performance over traditional acrylics with better flexibility, chemical resistance, non-blushing, adhesion, durability and hot tire resistance. Use over raw or stained/dyed concrete. One gallon covers approxiamtely 250-350 sq ft depending on the porosity of the substrate.


    Thanks....;)

    I can't comment on that particular product but I just had a garage slab done with a clear high gloss sealer (contractor didn't ask first, just did it), and it is so slippery when my shoes are even a little wet, I have almost face planted a whole bunch of times. I think what he used was Kaufman Krystal 25 OTC

    Thanks Bondo...

    I am going to be adding this to mine if i go with the Legacy stuff...It should help with slipping.

    Polypropylene based Non-Skid Additive. For use with all Legacy Industrial sealers and urethanes or any comparable thin sealer or top-coat.

    This is a softer non-skid that is ok for bare feet. It is soft on skin but very long lasting. Includes (1) 16oz. bottle of material.

    Choose from Coarse 16 mesh, Fine 40 mesh or Extra Fine 100 mesh.

    Coverage: (1) 16 oz. bottle will cover approx. 5 gallons of sealer (desired COF level dependent).

    I literally just did my floor, as in last night put the epoxy down. This is the first time I did an epoxy floor and have not experience with these before this but I have read that the water based coverings is not as durable as the solvent based. That is just what I read.

    Here is the link to my progress.

    I glued down 12"x12" commercial vinyl tiles. Cheap, easy to fix.

    I took the Epoxy plunge, I used a company called “Shape Ups” they did a great job. They grind away top layer to make for better seal, with a nice clear coat on top, and finished everything in one day,.

    It comes with lifetime warranty. Can’t beat that.

    I used the Legacy HD6600 in the closet. Works pretty good.

    Hey Bama,

    That looks very nice. What was the size that that Shape-Ups did, and mind tossing out an approximate cost ?

    Thanks !

    cost was 3.70 sq foot..Based on 32x34 room...typical for epoxy floor, it can range 3 to 4 dollars per square foot.
