Comment on Sherwin Williams ArmorSeal Epoxy Coating by Bob Hall http://topcoatreview.com/2011/01/sherwin-williams-armorseal-epoxy-coating/#comment-172029 Tue, 27 Jun 2017 02:25:13 +0000 http://topcoatreview.com/?p=468#comment-172029 I’m looking to apply an epoxy finish to my 2 car garage concrete floor which is 21 years old. I’ve been researching products to use, i.e. Shield-Crete or ArmorSeal. Based on my research it would appear that a 100% Solids Epoxy is much better than a water based Epoxy such as the Shield-Crete as far as durability etc. What would you recommend as far as a product is concerned. I do understand that the preparation for either product being used is critical. Any advice would be appreciated.

Perhaps try a sample of a couple of them and make your choice.

Comment on Ipe Deck Finish: 5 things not to do by Scott Burt http://topcoatreview.com/2011/06/ipe-deck-finish-5-things-not-to-do/#comment-171355 Sat, 17 Jun 2017 12:10:24 +0000 http://topcoatreview.com/?p=943#comment-171355 If you don’t oil it, it will turn gray. It will probably never rot but will dry out and get splintery over time. If you oil, it will look and feel much nicer but require maintenance to keep that way.

Probably power sanding would be easiest.

Face frames you might be better off to brush because it takes a lot of careful and tight masking to spray them.

Comment on Elastomeric Coating for Old Pressure Treated Decks by Rob Blank http://topcoatreview.com/2015/06/old-pressure-treated-decks/#comment-171204 Tue, 13 Jun 2017 17:25:44 +0000 http://topcoatreview.com/?p=11100#comment-171204 Hey Scott,
We used this deck & dock stain to coat a pretty old deck. Part of it was finished 2 weeks ago, and it still feels sticky when we walk on it. Most internet searches say we applied too much, but this stuff is supposed to be double-coated, right? The temps were perfect when we applied – a 3 or 4 day stretch in the 60s. Any thoughts on what we may have done wrong or if this stickiness will resolve on it’s own? Other than that, we’re really happy with the look.
