Theoretical Consumption

Approx. 9 m²/l at 40 µm dry

Practical Consumption

Approx. 9 +/- 2 m²/l. Practical coverage depends on many factors such as porosity and roughness of the substrate and material losses during application.

In order to improve abrasion resistance the product can be mixed with Rust-Oleum Ultra Wear 400. One packaging (750 gram) is sufficient for 5-litre product. The mixture must be stirred regularly in order to prevent settling on the bottom of the can. In case of petrol spilling/leakage do not wipe the floor dry but let evaporate. The coating will restore itself. It is advisable to wait for at least 1 week after application before parking a vehicle.

can this be used on setcrete high performance self levelling compound. This SLC is designed as a wear surface. What primer would I use in conjunction with the SLC and Epoxy Ultra? Many Thanks


If the self levelling product you have used can be left as a wearing surface and the manufacturer of the product is happy for it to be coated with single pack water-based floor coatings (epoxy-modified acrylic) then yes Rust-Oleum 5200 Epoxyshield Ultra could be used.

The data sheet for Rust-Oleum 5200 Epoxyshield Ultra states the followin under preparation;

Remove oil, grease and all other contaminants with Rust-Oleum Epoxyshield Cleaner / Degreaser in combination with high pressure cleaning. Allow new concrete to set for at least 30 days before applying a coating. Remove laitance, loose and damaged concrete by sandblasting or etching with Rust-Oleum Mathys 108 Surfa Etch Solution. Repair all holes and cracks with EpoxyShield concrete repair products. Always pre-treat absorbent, porous surfaces with Rust-Oleum 5220 Epoxyshield Sealer. Roughen or blast well-sealed and smooth concrete and treat withRust-Oleum 5220 Epoxyshield Sealer or apply a coat Rust-Oleum 3333 Super Adhesion Primer. Roughen still-intact floor coatings to ensure good adherence. Remove poorly adhering old coatings with wire brush and sandpaper. During application the surface must be clean and dry.

I used one cost of the rustoleum 5200 Epoxy sealer last year on my concrete floor. Is it Ok to now use this epoxy paint to paint over it. Even though the sealer was put on about 8 months ago. I have cleaned the floor thoroughly. Will it still work well or do I need to grind it back to the original concrete & start from scratch?


Rust-Oleum 5220 Epoxyshield Sealer is recommended to prime/seal floors before Rust-Oleum 5200 Epoxyshield Ultra so you will not need to remove it. Before applying Rust-Oleum 5200 Epoxyshield Ultra, ensure the floor is clean, dry and lightly sand the Rust-Oleum 5220 Epoxyshield Sealer if necessary to remove any gloss and provide a key.

questions Olly on 2018-11-12 22:38:08

I have a concrete floor slab, flat but only hand smoothed. Is the sealer/primer a necessity?


Yes, the data sheet states 'Always pre-treat absorbent, porous surfaces with Rust-Oleum 5220 Epoxyshield Sealer.'

questions Harriet wright on 2018-11-07 09:15:58

Would thus paint be suitable for use on floorboards in a bedroom and do you need to use a primer with it as old floorboards are currently bare wood.


Rust-Oleum 5200 Epoxyshield Ultra is recommended for concrete surfaces, for domestic floorboards customers have previously used Blackfriar Professional Acrylic Floor Paint. Bare surfaces require a sealer (Blackfriar Professional Water Based Floor Sealer or for small areas dilute Blackfriar Professional Acrylic Floor Paint with 10% water), then apply 2 coats of the floor paint as recommended. The coating should be allowed to fully harden before moving furniture about. Allow 7 days for the coating to cure hard. Any sharp objects moved across the floor may damage the coating, felt pads can be used under chair legs, bed frame lags etc and will minimise any damage.

Can I use this rust-eleum 5200 to put over a pre existing vinyl floor?



questions Barbara Smart on 2017-09-06 13:41:36
Question: Is the water based rust oleum 5200 epoxyshiled ultra a low odour paint? Thanks

Being water based, when used in the intended industrial/commercial environments Rust-Oleum 5200 Epoxyshield Ultra is indeed a low odour paint. Please note however this does not mean a NO odour paint.

questions Vladimira Kezele on 2017-03-17 21:31:43
Question: Can Epoxyshield 5200 Ultra be used for covering o an old concrete path around the house (outside)? If not, what would you recommend for outside old concrete?

Rust-Oleum Tarmacoat has a larger colour range and would be more suited to this type of external application.

questions Lisa Buckland  on 2015-08-04 08:50:36

Can Rust-Oleum 5200 Epoxyshield Ultra be used on wooden floorboards in a kitchen?


No, but you could use Timberex Aqua Plus
