Old paint on concrete question?

Hello everyone,

I read alot on this forum but, rarely do i post anything. My question is this, What is the best way to get old paint on a garage ( concrete ) floor off? I want to repaint the floor with Epoxy paint, speaking of the Epoxy paint, what is a great primer to buy to go along with it?

Most ways of removing old paint from concrete involve mechanical rather than chemical means, for good reason. Scraper, pressure washer, sandblasting etc. not paint strippers...

Use a grinder with a cup diamond wheel.
