questions Chris on 14/12/2018

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.

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 PJ on 01/02/2018

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.
