garage floor semi gloss sealer?


Hi you guys. I'm wanting to seal my garage floor with a high gloss or semigloss clear sealer. I don't want to paint it. Do you know of a good product to use? Thanks.

Jesse

sher-wms owns h&c & has products that will probably be acceptable to you,,, they're not something knowledgeable pro's use but they'll work,,, house painters aren't generally knowledgeable about floors/coatings/acceptable mtls so sher-wms sells lots of h&c stuff to painters

Your local concrete plant will have what you need. The stuff is quite toxic so I hope you can ventilate your garage.

Or you can go to Home Depot and get something like this:

that'll be fine,,, you might want to stir in some shark's grip for better traction,,, stir OFTEN to keep the grip in suspension,,, & ALWAYS 'work' to a wet edge - if the sealer dries while you're sealing, you'll have roller tracks -1 reason we use 18" rollers

Do I have to apply multiple coats?

You want to go with an epoxy or an aliphatic polyurethane. Which one you go with depends on your need and budget. Avoid acrylic coatings. Acrylic coatings will soften when they come into contact with oil and gas.
