Can I paint red tarmacoat over my black tarmac drive? Thank you Steve.


Yes, however for a regularly used driveway we would instead suggest Hydron Mona-Guard Revive.

questions gillian vance on 19/04/2018

I have small patio area 20ft by 10 ft roughly the yorkstone slabs surface is off almost. they have been down 20 years do you think if i could coated them with tarmac paint it would last ok?


We would recommend first priming with Rust-Oleum 5220 Epoxyshield Sealer assuming the surface will be porous. Then you could apply 2 coats of Rust-Oleum Tarmacoat.

questions Robert Gordon on 24/02/2018

Hi I have a imprinted drive way and was wondering if this paint would be suitable to cover it I have took the last coat of sealer of with a pressure washer and am now down to bare concrete thanks


Rust-Oleum Tarmacoat can be applied to exterior concrete surfaces but will not 'infill' or 'hide' the imprinted pattern the concrete has it will only colour it.

questions Jeff on 01/11/2017
Question: Can these colours be mixed to make different shades?

If you are asking two different colours of standard Tarmacoat can be mixed together to achieve a different colour, then yes that is possible. But the responsibility as to the actual colour achieved, and for any additional mixings to be consistent, is entirely with yourself. 

questions Bob on 25/11/2016
Question: Is the anti slip aggregate ready mixed in or can extra be added and are two coats preferable

Rust-Oleum Tarmacoat is a smooth coating so if you wish to produce a non-slip surface you would need to use one of the Rust-Oleum Non-Skid Additives which can either be mixed into the Tarmacoat or sprinkled into the freshly applied coating and overcoated once dry.
