Garage Floor Coating

When it comes to choosing a sealer for a garage you must first decide what type of finish you are looking for and the level of protection you desire. Garage floor sealers are typically penetrating sealers that leave a natural, flat finish. They require little surface prep and are easy to apply. Penetrating garage floor sealers will protect against deicing salts and some will make oil and grease stains easier to clean. If you are looking for a more durable and industrial product a garage floor coating is going to be your best bet. A garage floor coating like a epoxy floor coating is able to protect against deicing salts and heavy abrasions. Oil and grease will not damage the floor or the coating whatsoever and concrete dusting will be eliminated. Garage floor coatings will leave a gloss finish and they are available clear or colored.

Epoxy 325

Oil Repellent
Salt Repellent
Chemical Resistant
Water-Based
Two-component

Best used as a primer before using the Urethane 645 top coat. This durable epoxy floor coating repels chemicals, stops dusting and resists abrasions in a clear or colored semi-gloss finish

The Epoxy 325 is the first step in an epoxy floor coating system. This primer is applied after the concrete has been etched or grind-ed. Before applying an epoxy floor coating it is best to scarify and rough up the surface of the concrete in order for the coating to properly bond and adhere. This can be achieved by acid etching and neutralizing the concrete or by mechanically grinding the concrete with a floor grinder.

Once the surface has been properly prepped the Epoxy 325 can then be applied with an epoxy glide roller. The Epoxy 325 is available in a two component kit. Each kit contains a Part A and a Part B. Part A and Part B are mixed together with a drill or jiffy mixer. Once Part A and Part B are mixed the Epoxy 325 must be applied within 1 hour. About 7-10 hours after applying the Epoxy 325, the Urethane 645 can then be applied as a top coat.

The Epoxy 325 is available in clear or colored. If you are using a colored epoxy primer you are going to want to use the same color top coat. Paint chips (for decoration) or aluminum oxide (for slip resistance) can be cast into the wet epoxy and then top coated with the Urethane 645.

The combination of the Epoxy 325 primer and Urethane 645 top coat are excellent at stopping dusting, repelling oils, greases, chemicals and acids; however, they can only be used on indoor concrete floors.

If there is moisture in the concrete prior to application first use the Vapor-Tek 440.

The Micro-Degreaser 1100 can be used to degrease and remove soils and stains prior to using the Epoxy 325.

The Hydro-Etch 1000 can be used to etch the concrete prior to applying the Epoxy 325.

Urethane 645

Oil Repellent
Chemical Resistant
Solvent-Based
Two-component

Best used as a top coat after using the Epoxy 325 primer. This durable urethane floor coating repels chemicals, stops chemicals and resists abrasions in a clear or colored high-gloss finish

The Urethane 645 is typically applied about 7-10 hours after applying the Epoxy 325. If more than 48 hours have elapsed since the Epoxy 325 primer has been applied it is best to lightly sand the surface of the Epoxy 325 to maximize the bond and adhesion of the Urethane 645.

The Urethane 645 is also available clear or colored and in a two component kit. Each kit contains a Part A and a Part B. Part A and Part B are mixed together with a drill or jiffy mixer. Once Part A and Part B are mixed the Urethane 645 must be applied within 2 hours.

One coat of the Urethane 645 is best applied with an epoxy glide roller. The Urethane 645 leaves a high gloss finish and is extremely easy to clean. However, it can also be slippery when wet. If maximum traction is desired 46 Grit Aluminum Oxide can be cast into the wet Epoxy 325 and then coated with the Urethane 645. If lesser traction is desired a slip resistant additive can be mixed into a kit of Urethane 645.

The combination of the Epoxy 325 primer and Urethane 645 top coat are excellent at stopping dusting, repelling oils, greases, chemicals and acids; however, they can only be used on indoor concrete floors.

Because of VOC restrictions in the State of California, the Urethane 645 cannot be used. A California compliant version of the Urethane is available for use in California.

Siloxa-Tek 8510

Water Repellent
Oil Repellent
Salt Repellent
Solvent-Based
Ready-to-use

If a natural finish is desired the Siloxa-Tek 8510 is the best penetrating concrete sealer and the longest lasting penetrating concrete sealer to use on a garage floor. This high actives product is able to resist deicing salts and will make oil and grease stains easier to clean

The Siloxa-Tek 8510 is our flagship concrete sealer and a triple threat when it comes to protecting against water, deicing salts and stain resistance from oils and greases. Because of the small amount of solvent carrier, this high actives penetrating sealer is the deepest penetrating and longest lasting sealer in the Siloxa-Tek line.

Available only in a ready to use version, two coats are easily applied wet-on-wet with a solvent rated sprayer, roller or brush. The concrete retains its natural, flat finish after sealing.

To increase the strength and performance of the Siloxa-Tek 8510, apply one coat of the Lithi-Tek 4500 five to seven days prior to sealing with the Siloxa-Tek 8510.

The Micro-Degreaser 1100 can be used to degrease and remove soils and stains prior to using the Siloxa-Tek 8510.

Siloxa-Tek 8505

Water Repellent
Oil Repellent
Salt Repellent
Water-Based
Ready-to-use
Concentrated

The water-based version of the Siloxa-Tek 8510 is the Siloxa-Tek 8505. It features low VOCs and is compliant in all 50 states

We took our favorite all-around, concrete sealer and made it even better. Take all the best attributes of 8500 - resists water intrusion, deicing salts and chlorides and add to it resistance from staining making it an even better choice for driveways. The same stain resistance technology found in the 8510 is also in this water based product, making oil and grease clean up easier. The main difference between the 8510 and the 8505 is that the 8510 uses a solvent as a carrier and the 8505 uses water as a carrier.

Available in a ready to use version, or an ultra concentrated version. The ultra concentrated version is mixed with 4 gallons of distilled water prior to application. Two coats are easily applied wet-on-wet with a sprayer, roller or brush.

To increase the strength and performance of the Siloxa-Tek 8505, apply one coat of the Lithi-Tek 4500 five to seven days prior to sealing with the Siloxa-Tek 8505.

The Micro-Degreaser 1100 can be used to degrease and remove soils and stains prior to using the Siloxa-Tek 8510.

Concentrated

If a natural finish is desired but you are not worried about stain resistance the Siloxa-Tek 8500 is the best concrete sealer to use. The Siloxa-Tek 8500 is a water repellent and it is able to resist deicing salt exposure

The Siloxa-Tek 8500 is our favorite product to treat nearly any application. The Siloxa-Tek 8500 is a water-based penetrating sealer that leaves a natural finish, meaning it will not change the look or appearance of the concrete.

The 8500 is used to protect garage floors from deicing salts and mag chlorides. If concrete is left unsealed it can result in spalling, pitting and cracking. The Siloxa-Tek 8500 is able to resist deicing salt damage and keep concrete strong and waterproof.

Available in a ready to use version, or an ultra concentrated version. The ultra concentrated version is mixed with 4 gallons of distilled water prior to application. Two coats are easily applied wet-on-wet (the second coat is applied immediately after the first coat while the first coat is still wet) with a sprayer, roller or brush.

To increase the strength and performance of the Siloxa-Tek 8500, apply one coat of the Lithi-Tek 4500 five to seven days prior to sealing with the Siloxa-Tek 8500.
