RESTORE-A-GARAGE EPOXY TIP SHEET

  1. Do not apply if the temperature is below 55° F or above 85° F.
  2. All prior coatings must be removed or grinded off to adhere properly.
  3. Apply only when temperature and humidity are at their lowest point of the day. Avoid hot direct sunlight.
  4. You must wait at least 30 to 60 days for new concrete to cure.
  5. The Epoxy material should be at 70° F to 75° F before using it.
  6. No water or rain for at least 48 hours after applying.
  7. No car traffic within the first 48 hours after applying.
  8. Be sure to fill all large cracks, holes, and depressions prior to applying.
  9. A complete cure of the Epoxy coating is 24 to 48 hours at 65º F and less than 50% humidity. Do not close the garage door, walk on, or drive on until fully cured. Temperatures lower than 75° will result in longer cure times.

    Hi there,
    My garage is 22X22, old concrete about 35 years old. I tried the HomeDEpot so called epoxy and realised it does not work. I have grinded the floor to remove the old paint, etched and is now drying. How much epoxy will I need and do you have detailed step by step instruction on how to do this. I am all by myself doing it, any tips will be of hep.
    Thanks you in advance

    After the first coat is completed and dry, can a vinyl decal be applied and then an epoxy top clear top coat to the whole floor?

      We have never tried it but it should work in theory.

    Sarah · 04/05/2022
    Square Footage of Area to be Restored: 210, plus an additional 35 in a hallway on the same section of concrete, could I do them at separate times or would I need to do them at the same time if using the same kit?
    Approximate age of concrete: 4 months
    If applicable, has a previous coating been used before: none
    Any oil or grease spills: nope
    Do you have access to a pressure washer: yes
    Miscellaneous info: This is new construction on an addition, the current project application is a storage/utility closet, as well as the beginning of the hallway into the house from the garage. There is a lot of drywall mud and debris, but no oil/grease.
    What do I need to do for prep/cleaning?
    Can I do more than one color with a kit?
    Is there a gallery of projects anywhere?
    How many pounds of fleck for a medium-heavy cast on 245 square feet?

    Square Footage of Area to be Restored: 450 sf
    Approximate age of concrete: new construction....construction...application is garage in southern CA
    If applicable, has a previous coating been used before: none
    Any oil or grease spills: none
    Do you have access to a pressure washer: yes, but will ask builder to pressure wash before we take possession 
    Miscellaneous info: Take possession in early June.  Town gets very hot in the summers (90+ F).  I assume I would need to apply it early in the morning, when cool, let it dry and apply gloss coat the next day, correct?   I also assume in need the etch coat first - can that be applied in hot weather?  Time between etch and epoxy coating?   Is one coat of epoxy really enough?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 04/05/2022
      Yes, you will need to etch and then let dry for 1-2 days before applying the Epoxy. 1 coat is enough but for added protection, use the RAG Top Coats.

      Do not apply if the temperature is below 55° F or above 85° F.

     I have a 30 yr old 2 car concrete garage floor. During the rainy season it developes white powdery stuff on the surface, so I would need a moisture barrier prior to applying the epoxy coating. what would you recomend for this?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 03/28/2022
      It is not possible to add a moisture barrier prior to applying an epoxy as that would repel the epoxy from adhering corectly.
      • We will reply to your comment shortly
        Randy · 03/29/2022
        so will the epoxy bond to the concrete even though there is no moisture barrier? And does the epoxy act as a moisture barrier? Assuming that it is applied at proper temperatures.

          RAD Products · 03/30/2022
          No top coat system or sealer can prevent water from seeping out through the concrete if that is what you are asking? Coatings and sealer will only work to prevent water from intruding in, not seeping out.

    I bought a house in Colorado and the floor already has a tan epoxy done and it is flaking up and the concrete is breaking up. What would you recommend to do to fix and recoat this 3 bay garage? The only the area where the road salt and chloride drips off the cars is damaged.  
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 03/17/2022
      You would have to rent a floor grinding machine to remove the current coating fully first.

          All floors have to be properly prepped. This is in the directions. You can grind or etch.

    I want to use this epoxy on a brand new enclosed trailer floor (wood) First of all can I do that. Second how do I prep it? Sand it and vaccume? I imagine you cant or dont need to acid etch the wood

      No need to prep a wood trailer floor.

    Also, there are a few spots where the concrete has cracked and alot of holes around the perimeter (removed carpet tack strips which left holes) what do you recommend using to fill the holes and cracks with?
  • We will reply to your comment shortly
    Adrian · 02/18/2022
    The floor I am installing on had glue down carpet before. I rented a floor grinder and ran across the floor. However there are a few spots that would not come "clean". Do I need to grind it down to white concrete? Also 2nd question: there are a few spots that seem smooth, does it need to have a scratched surface before applying?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 02/19/2022
      Yes, grind it all off. Yes on second question.

      No. Old coating should be removed by grinding it off.

    I have a 400 sq ft garage, floor is 27 years old and in good condition,  I will be using a diamabrush tool to remove the old painted material and to prep the surface.  No oil stains.  Plan on degreasing and etching.  Will be filling and sanding any cracks.  My cracks are few and very small.  How much Mil coverage should I expect with 3 gallons?  What benefits will a top coat provide.
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 01/25/2022
      3-Gallon Epoxy Kit coverage 380-480 sq. Ft. at 10 mils dft or 240 sq. Ft. At 20 mils dft (dry film thickness)

      The topcoat gives add protection and additional shine if desired.

    Where can I purchase restore a garage epoxy in my area? 28468 is my zip. My garage floor is 16 years old. Fairly clean and very little 'oil' in one area. It is approximately 1100 sq. feet. What type of prep work should I do on the floor/concrete? I have read good/bad reviews on etching.

    Rich · 01/03/2022
    I have many layers of paint on an old basement floor. Can I epoxy over that? How much prep do I need to do? I'd rather not rent a grinder - it's a lot of expense/noise/dust. Would a hand-push scraper work? What's the minimum I can get away with?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly

      You have to remove it all and that will require grinding.

          Not sure if they rent them at HD but you can check. If not, any contractor ental yard should have one. Not sure how long it will take you but it would take us a couple of hours.

            Is there a make and model? What is the machine even called, a floor grinder? What attachment should I be using? There's diamond heads... wire brushes... what's my ideal setup?

              No, there is not a make and model. Diamond grinder. Any rental yard will know what you need.

      Emails are sent when the items ship. They do ship from separate warehouses so they may arrive on different dates. Usually takes 1-2 days to ship out of warehouse and 3-4 days to arrive in FL.

    New construction. Floor will be power washed by builder just before we move in. Since this will be a clean new floor is there any surface prep required?Surface area 864 ft2. Which combination of kits is best for complete coverage?

      Yes, you have to etch the surface for prep. 2 of the 3-gallons kits and one of the 1.5-gallon kits.

    Looking to use your product on our garage floor which had several layers of paint.  We have grinded off all surfaces down to slab. Do we need to etch the surface before applying product?

      No need. Grinding leaves the surface porous for the Epoxy coating.

    I have in floor heat (boiler that supplies water tubing), the floor can be anywhere from 41 to 75 Fahrenheit depending on where I set the thermostat in my shop. I live up by Ely, MN, current temp 27, would I be able to install the epoxy flooring this winter.

      We would not suggest doing it in the Winter as if it has any issues curing due to the low temps, you will have to remove and start over.

      It should be fine as long as you do not apply the epoxy with the heat on and you cure the epoxy for 5-7 days prior to turning on the heated floor system.
