Can this product be used over a floor that has been sealed using Blackfriar Professional Water Based Floor Sealer?


No this product is design to be applied to bare concrete floors to reduce dust and protect the floor from liquids.

It can be used as a finishing coating but only to bare concrete.

questions G on 2019-11-14 07:25:32

Morning, I would like to have a clear finish on my new kitchen floor - which was levelled with a self-levelling screed. Is the Rust-Oleum 5220 EpoxyShield Sealer appropriate to use on this type of floor i.e. in such a high traffic area. Thank you.


Rust-Oleum 5220 Epoxyshield Sealer could be used for this type of application however we would suggest you ensure the self levelling screed used is suitable to be left as a wearing course to recieve the level of expected traffic and that it can in fact be overcoated with Rust-Oleum 5220 Epoxyshield Sealer. You would need to contact the Technical Department of the manufacturer of the screed to ascertain this information, presenting them with the data sheet of Rust-Oleum 5220 Epoxyshield Sealer.

Hi, We wish to waterproof and harden the concrete floor of a garage for parking motorcycles. We ride in all weathers and so sometimes come home with wet bikes. We also do some maintenance so there are occasional small oil spills. Concrete was poured 3 months ago, with an area of about 25 sq m. Can you advise the best product please. Many thanks.


Rust-Oleum 5220 Epoxyshield Sealer could be considered for this purpose, but given that the mention of frequent water and occasional oil spillages, we would instead advise 2 - 3 coats of Rust-Oleum 4900 Polycoat 2K.

I’ve just finished grinding the surface of a recently laid concrete floor in my extension. I used a diamond grinding disc attached to an angle grinder which has removed all ridges, but I’ve stopped short of polishing it. Would this product be suitable in my floor please? Thanks


Diamond grinding is an excellent method of preparation for concrete prior to applying Rust-Oleum 5220 Epoxyshield Sealer. Ensure the concrete is completely clean and dry before application. New concrete should be allowed to cure for at least 30 days minimum.

questions P Storey on 2018-05-13 11:42:38

I'm thinking of sealing my garage floor using Rust-Oleum 5220 Epoxyshield Sealer. Can I apply a standard floor paint on top of the Sealer? Thanks.


After application of Rust-Oleum 5220 Epoxyshield Sealer if a coloured topcoat is required we recommend Rust-Oleum 5200 Epoxyshield Ultra is used.

questions Tom lester on 2018-02-04 13:15:59

questions PJ on 2018-02-01 21:39:55

Hi I would like to have a clear finish on my new kitchen extention concrete floor which has been power floated. Is this EpoxyShield Sealer appropriate to use on this floor and in such a hi traffic area (using the two coats recommended) many thanks


Rust-Oleum 5220 Epoxyshield Sealer cannot be applied on smooth or very dense concrete or concrete which contains curing compound. As this is a power floated floor it would limit the adhesion that may be obtained between substrate and paint. This would also be true for any alternatives we might consider.

We can of course provide a clear hard wearing floor system, but in order to do so, you would need to “open up” the surface by way of grinding or blasting and whilst this would assist with the adhesion, the consequence of course would be removing the very smooth appearance.

If you are happy with this compromise we would then recommend the application of something like Rust-Oleum 4900 Polycoat 2K instead. However we would recommend carrying out a trial first to ensure adhesion, appearance, performance, etc. are all acceptable.
