2 Part Epoxy Paint Touch Up Tips


I finished painting my garage floor using a 2 Part Epoxy coating. After finishing half of the floor the first day, I noticed the following day some spots where I wasn't keeping the roller wet enough and the concrete was showing through. I needed to finish the 2nd half of the floor, so after activating the new kit to cover the remaining garage floor, I lightly touched up using the activated kit with a brush on the spots that weren't covered completely from the previous day. Now, after completing the entire floor 3 days later, I can noticeably see those spots that were touched up. They show up much glossier than the rest of the dried floor.

How can I bring down the gloss in those touched up spots, and also, how can bring down the gloss on the overlaps that dried glossier?
I also used a small 4 inch roller in one small area on the 1st day of the project instead of a brush which caused THAT particular spot to dry with a DULL ring around it (much duller than the rest of the dried floor). Is there any way to correct this ring that I touched up too?
P.S. I used Behr 2 part epoxy coating (semi gloss, light gray color) and sparingly sprinkled decorative paint chips.

Epoxy touch up is not some thing that is done with good results. The floor might need one more coat to achieve the results you are looking for.

2 Part Epoxy Paint Touch Up Tips


Mark942,
I sprinkled decorative paint chips during the job. I'm pretty sure another coat of light grey colored epoxy would cause the paint chips to show up as a 'shadow' underneath the second coat and cover up the different colors in the chips.

Did you mean apply another coat in 'clear' epoxy to get the best results ?

just ignore them for a few years and it'll all start to match up, but by that time you probably won't be worried about it anyway
