Painting a porch floor......already painted


Epoxies are for INTERIOR only. They are not UV-ristant and will chalk rapidly outdoors. Stains are good for a new, unpainted or unstained surface. Cabot 1800 Series is one we have had good success with, especially targeting dark colors. The visual effect is a painted deck.

I disagree. Its a fact that there are epoxies that have UV inhibitors in them and can be used on the EXTERIOR.

I agree. I used expoxy all the time on exterior restoration projects including restoring sailboats. Never on just one side of a wood surface as a finish though.

Help me out here, guys. A polyamide or polyamine epoxy is not uv-resistant; they are generally top-coated with a two-component polyurethane, which can be used on an off-shore drilling rig. Polyurethane (High-Performance, high-quality) is used often for coating in harsh environments. Some people refer to them as epoxies because they are two-component, but they are polyurethanes, not epoxies.

I am in a severely-restricted VOC state and may not have access to many of the products the free countries enjoy. Please advise.

Here is the link to the Ben Moore waterbased floor, porch and patio paint for what it is worth.

I would never propose to paint or solid stain (with any product) a porch or patio that was not covered.

This is in the family of epoxy-fortified acrylics, such as the one my company sells:

I thought the subject had changed to a erue, straight industrial epoxy.

Sorry to all for the confusion...

Nice that the Kelly Moore product comes in a gloss, the Ben Moore waterbased product is more of a satin. No big difference I guess.

In looking around, I saw California Paints makes a product too. I have not thought of them in ages. Kelly Moore was my fave when working on the West Coast. It is only availed out West. There may be some products out of Portland that are low/no VOC worth looking into given you cannot get or use oils much any more.

The rest of the nation will follow California eventually.
