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.

COVERAGE:

One Coat except 2 coats recommended for Beige, White & Yellow colors.

    Do you have a photo of a floor done with battleship grey? It looks like it has a blue cast it. Is that correct?

    What is the purpose of the clear coat? I’m trying to decide if it is worth the additional cost.

      Added protection after applying the epoxy and is used for maintenance coats as needed down the road.

    I am interested in covering our 15x22 garage floor with your product and the black/gray/tan chips. Is there a "typical" base epoxy color that you recommend or most choose? I prefer a gray, but something that would have some level of contrast to the gray chips in the mix. It's hard to tell on a computer monitor what the actual colors look like.

      Most popular are the gray colors such as Candian Gray, Dark Gray, or Battleship Gray.

    We are about to have a new garage built. Is a broom finish or some other finish better to use for product adhesion? How much time before epoxy can be applied on new concrete? Is a primer necessary?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 12/13/2020
      Regular finish. Wait about 30 days for concrete to cure. Never use a primer.

    Is there something I can put down with the epoxy that will give the covering some texture?

      The Fleck or a Grip can be broadcasted on top of the Epoxy after it is applied.

    Do you have to grind and etch for this product? 25 year old floor with a few small stains. Also is that accurate for heavy broadcast? 200 pounds for 1000 Sq. feet?

    Hello, can you confirm that the etch when diluted with 4 gallons of water is good for 500-750 sq ft? I was reading instructions in general about etching and it stated that 3 gallons mixed with the etch was good for 50-75 sq ft. I don't know if that other site had a typo, but as noted, I want to confirm the single gallon of etch mixed with 4 gallons of water will cover 500+ sq ft. Thank you.

      When mixed, the coverage will be close to 500 sq feet.

    I am planning to have my concrete steps painted. The steps are only 2 months olds and it is developing some small hairline cracks. I would like to know if this epoxy coating will seal these cracks before I paint them and would it prevent future cracks

      It would fill small hairline cracks but no coating can prevent future cracks.

    I am closing on a new house build at the end of October an hour west of Toronto. At total of 850 sqft in two garage spaces. Am I correct that no prep is required for concrete (poured 3 months ago) other than ensuring it is clean. No acid etch required given its brand new. Finally, assume it is acceptable to use a garage heater in order to maintain correct temperature range?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 09/24/2020
      It has to be clean and you must acid etch. Temps have to be in the 70s when applying and drying.

    I’m planning to place your product on our garage floor. The area pictured is part one and the garage bays will be part 2 later on. I will leave a 1ft area at the edge without flecks and blend it on the second job.

    The area pictured is 168sft, which includes the pictured wooden shelf. I am planning on Epoxy, flecks, the clear coat on the floor, the curb and the shelves.

    The concrete is 15yrs old and has never been coated. I will power wash and etch it first.

    My questions are:
    1. How do I treat the wood? Is sanding sufficient?
    2. Notice the 4” curb around the border. I am worried about pot time and applying the product to the elevated shelf and the curb. Since these take time and smaller tools, can I mix enough to do those first and immediately mix the rest for the floor?

    Any guidance would be appreciated.

      1. Sanding should work. 60-80 grit.
      2. You cannot break the kits down into smaller quantities to mix. It could throw off the ratios. I would suggest mixing a small kit first and moving fast with a few people helping so it goes down quickly. Do this first before moving onto the floor.

    Also, if the aluminum oxide needs to be purchased elsewhere, is there a recommended "grit" size and quantity to be used?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 09/08/2020
      Shark Grit or Super Grip are popular brands that will work.

        Anthony De Filippo · 09/09/2020
        Thank you for the quick responses. The Product Data Sheet says to apply the aluminum oxide after the fleck has been cast. When using a top coat, it says to use 100-120 grit sandpaper to scuff the floor prior to using the top coat. Will the sanding affect the non-slip of the aluminum oxide? Should the aluminum oxide still go on after the fleck and before the top coat or after the top coat?
        • We will reply to your comment shortly
          RAD Products · 09/09/2020
          You apply the fleck and non-slip on the epoxy, prior to the Top Coat. You can avoid sanding for the top-coat application if you apply it 15-18 hours after the epoxy.
  • We will reply to your comment shortly
    Anthony De Filippo · 09/08/2020
    The data sheet mentions adding the aluminum oxide additive when adding the fleck. I do not s the aluminum oxide additive on the website. Do you sell it?

    I am going to do my garage next week and am thinking to add the top coat. What is the slip coefficient of your satin and gloss finishes? Also, do you recommend adding a sand or grit to the top coat (once applied as I read below)? And where can that be purchased if you do not offer? 6/27/2020. Thank you.

    The previous owner of our house used to let his dogs and cats pee on the bare concrete floor in the basement. This has resulted in a lingering odor that is especially prevalent on warm days. Will the epoxy concrete coating seal the floor adequately to prevent the odor from returning? Or does the coating "breathe", allowing the odors to return even after the floor has been sealed?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 06/25/2020
      It 100% covers the floor, it does not breathe.

    Ew are completing new shop build. Our slab is a year old with only construction foot traffic. We tinted the cement tan with the thought of putting a clear coat epoxy on, but unfortunately the slab developed a continuous oval crack around the center of the shop. the plan now, or what we're thing is to fill in the cracks with an epoxy caulk and then apply your product on top in the tan color. Question is, if the cement is already tinted tan, do we need two coats?

    Can I use your product on a patterned concrete sidewalk? If so, can you add sand or another type of grit to make it less slippery?

    I have a 3 car garage, 800 sq. ft., that is 20 years old with water stains and small spots of rust - no fresh oil or grease, and there has been no previous coating applied. I will order the appropriate kit but I need to know how much of the etching solution to order to ensure full coverage. Also need to know how many pounds of flakes to order for full, even coverage. Can you provide an approximate shipping time as well.

    Thank you and looking forward to your early reply. Regards, Aubrey Cornelius - Spicewood, Texas

    If I elect to go with the beige color and 2 coats are necessary, do I apply the second coat immediately after finishing the first or do I have to wait 24-48 hours to apply the second?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 05/06/2020
      After the first coat is dry to the touch in 2-6 hours. It will need to go on before the full cure of the first coat.

    Can you add quartz or fine sand to create a non-skid surface? I am concerned with this finish if water gets on it creating a potential slip and fall. Is is necessary with this product?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      RAD Products · 04/29/2020
      You can add a grip on top as it is drying. You will have to broadcast as you do with the flecks. It cannot be mixed into the coating.
