What do I do to my concrete patio


found this locally, the owner of the paint store is concerned it may not hold the anti slip additive. Or that it will gray the finish. http://shop.paintprimerdepot.com/Def...r-STP-CONC.htm Your suggestions have not fallen on deaf ears, I am considering all my options. The owner of the paint store told me everything is going water based and like it or not that is all we will be able to use.

IF 1 buys mostly from paint stores, he's right ' sharks' grip ' doesn't change color HOWEVER 1 must stir frequently so aggregate doesn't settle to the btm of the can,,, here's 1 option you may not have considered: to my knowledge, there is NO paint that's pedestrian-traffic friendly - not even what sells as ' garage OR deck paint ' decent coatings are still NOT wtr-bas'd

Anti slip/rough catches and holds more dirt and grime and is harder to keep clean unlike a smoother surface, that's the one drawback.
A lot is going to waterbased but not all, steel can't be painted with water based paint and be expected to not rust, I had a heck of a time finding oil based flat white paint for the tin ceiling in my gallery, only one I was able to find was Rustoleum flat white.

that's why we use & recommend shark's grip ( ground polycarbonate - fine mesh screens ),,, for industrial floor coatings, we'll mix in either aluminum oxide or garnet,,, its the added aggregate that takes most of the abuse & allows epox/urethane floors longer life,,, blame epa for eliminating solvent-bas'd mtls its not THEIR $$,,, they wouldn't know a profit IF their jobs depended on it

The epa is all of us, all of those who call, write, fax and email their reps demanding "something be done about (insert and name favorite cause/problem here) immediately! "

Then there's the lawsuits, all those labels that warn such and such ingredients in the product are
