It cannot be applied with a paint roller.
It cannot be applied with an epoxy floor paint squeegee.
Because it is not a paint.
All the other reflective metallic epoxy floor coatings available are paints. And would make a nice wall coating or even possibly a light duty residential garage floor, but do not hold up to things such as:
- Oil spillage
- Lateral Repetitive Movement
- Weight loads
- Chemical exposure
- Excessive Cleaning
A floor needs to be thick enough to absorb impact and shock. Even "thick" epoxy floor paint coatings are only 50 mils (most being around 25 or less). 1 mil equals 0.001 inch so even a floor paint that is applied @ 50 mils is still only five one hundredths of an inch (or 1/20″). As you can see, being labeled "thick" doesn't really mean anything.
Here are some easy ways to determine if a coating is a paint or if it is a floor.
- If there is just liquid in the can it is just a paint and not a floor.
- If the instructions say to apply it with a notched squeegee it is just a paint and not a floor.
- If the coverage is 100 or more square feet to a gallon it is just a paint and not a floor.
Everlast® Décor Floor is not a liquid once mixed. It cannot be applied with a notched squeegee or rolled through with a paint roller, and if you measure out one gallon it would cover less than 12 square feet.
If you want durable, hard-wearing and long-lasting epoxy floor then don’t use an epoxy paint instead use an epoxy floor. Don't let someone talk you into a paint because it is better than all the other paints.
Would you put a really good carpet on your roof? (The best carpet on the market of course, not just any carpet that can be found at a hardware store.) You wouldn't put even the best carpet on your roof! Just like you wouldn't put drywall on the floor. So don't put a paint on your floor, either! Paint is for walls and floor is for floors.
