garage floor

diana3February 7, 2013

I power washed my garage floor then put grey epoxy on it. I let it dry for 3 days. The first time I drove my car in it left tire marks. There are also places that are white. The grey crumbles right off. What did I do wrong and how can I remedy it?
Thanks

Did you etch the floor? Did you buy good epoxy paint?

I used Kwik Kote epoxy from Lowes. It's what I used a few yrs ago and it worked fine. I'll look up etching.

Thanks

Did you remove any grease? Etch it? Let it dry for 48 hours before coating? Thoroughly mix up the paint? This sounds like a prep problem. Most paint issues are.

I had my garage floor professionally power washed and let it dry for 2 days. Then put Kwik Kote grey epoxy on it. I let it dry for 3 days. The first time I drove my car in it left tire marks. Now a few months later the whole floor is almost all peeled off. The grey crumbles right off. It looks terrible. I know it was the prep that was wrong. What can I do?

does the floor preparation instructions by Kwik Kote require etching prior to application of epoxy?
