Need some feedback here on the best surface for a garage floor. I'm towards the end of a sizable renovation and addition to my home and part of that is a garage for my muzzy.
At the moment i'm looking at a smooth concrete finish and then sealing it for durability with bondcrete or a similar product.
Question ..is this the best product for sealing it for durability from oil and the like? or are there other products on the market which do a better job?

G'day

Can't remember the exact product name, but it was a kit by Dulux specifically made for shed floors the I got from Bunnings. Its held up well for me over the last few years. Oil etc just wipes away, the worse thing I had was a new set of tyres that left marks where they had been sitting when first installed. Took a bit of cleaning but they came off.


Cheers

My neighbour use to door drive ways etc. They had this 2 pack stuff for garage floors, which was a white base, then you chucked all these paint chips on it, then rolled 2 coats of clear. Strong as and looked pretty neat not sure what it was called. Some industrial floor sealer though tough as.

I have Sika Duraseal on the floor at the shed Charlie and also on my garage/workshop at home. It's tough as nails, it isn't cheap but you won't be having to reseal your floor. You can get it from Bunnings (by order) or call Sika and they'll let you know names of stockists. Well worth it in my opinion.

Sika do clear and coloured two pack sealers. The clear may be what ShaunP mentioned. From memory it cost over $200 per 20litre tin when I did my garage at home(coloured). Frightfully expensive but excellent product, sets like rock.

Hi Guys,
Me too !
I'm looking at my options.. epoxy floor coatings seem to be the go.

The two standouts seem to be :
Dulux garage floor kit - 2x$125 boxes for a single car garage. That's 1 pack colour, and 1 pack clear.

Dymark garage floor kit. $200 for an 8l pack that does a double garage. Also available is an 8l clear. I'm asking them at the moment if it is worth the clear over the top.

oh yeah - both kits have the nice speckly chips too Smile

Cheers
dave

5-10m/2 for the first coat and 10-15m/2 for 2nd and third coats. I've only ever done 2. The other products mentioned would be worth looking into, they're a lot cheaper.

Caught up with they guy I know at Sika, he recomended the Duraseal (as you used Rick) he recons its easy to apply and tough as hell. Comes in clear, light grey and dark grey....reckons once down, youll never have to reseal for years. Looks like the way to go.

It is easy to apply Charlie - get a few cheap rollers to throw away. It does stink pretty bad though so make sure you do it when the area is well ventilated. If it's not a new floor you're painting make sure you prep well where there may have been some old oil drips. I didn't (doh) and the paint hasn't taken well there, everywhere else is rock solid no matter how much abuse it's had. Have fun.

Thanks Rick, it's a new floor ( not in yet! ) so I'll give it a few weeks to cure once down then hit it with a mild acid solution to etch the surface to give good adhesion.

Im looking to do my garage floor as well.

I need to get rid of some stubborn oil marks first.
Ive tried, Garage floor cleaner from Bunnings, scrubbing, degreaser and High Pressure clean - It Didnt work!!

Im guessing that its penetraded too deep and might be OK to seal over.

Has anybody had a similar problem and what did they do?

Thanks

Garage floors came up in a previous thread - advice from DOZE-6015

DOZE-6015 wrote
Not to put crap on concrete paint, well I am going to anyway, but I did have a look at a house for sale over the weekend and it had the paint job done to the concrete floor in the mancave, the spots where it was lifting was where the tyres were sitting in the same spots (go figure that). It was down for quite some time but I would have thought the service life would have been greater. What to look out for when purchasing this type of product ?

1: Bond strength
2: Finished coating thickness
3: Compressive strength of the coating, needs to be as hard if not harder than the final strength of the concrete
4: Impact resistance, needs to handle the drop of a hammer
