    Not really - it's a 2-pack epoxy and even though water based tends to have a pretty long shelf life. Just give the Part A a good stir before using.

    The down side of these packs vs buying a similar product in a paint store is only that you don't get any colour choice, its AS2700 N23 Neutral Grey. The up side is that you get the concrete etchant included and it comes in a natty box with instructions.

You usually thin the first coat out a little to soak in better but still for a more generous coverage bank on closer to 12m2/L.
    So how many tins would be requires to do 120m2?

    2 coats of 120m2? So in reality 240m2?

    The kits are 4Lt so to do it on the generous side of 12m2/L is 5 kits.

    Going by the pack instructions of 16m2/L is ~4 kits.

    How does the rustoleum epoxy stuff handle steel wheels (engine crane/stand)? Probably best to get some nylon castors I guess?

    Valid question actually for the Aldi Wattyl gear, has anyone actually used it and then given it some abuse in a typical car enthusiasts garage with oil spills, engine cranes and tools thrown about in disgust at yet another fucked Z32 piece of shit destroying your life and sanity?

    I bought 3 of the Wattyl satin kits from Aldi at the sale. Used 2 yesterday on my 6x12m shed (other one is for the garage on the house). The etching/wash seemed a bit thin across the ground and wouldn't shift some stains. Has come up alright but the patchy finish is due to the operator (first time using a roller). The first quarter of the shed is a bit average because my roller tray was too small and wasn't getting good coverage on the roller. Once the nopics raced to the hardware and grabbed a bigger tray morale and uniformity improved. Looks shit hot where I had a shit ton on the roller or did a second coat with the leftovers. Other parts look a bit meh and really needs a second coat. But at the end of the day it's quite an improvement over the bare concrete and I probably won't care once there's cars parked on it.

    the saw cuts in my floor that i filled and painted over have cracked - as the paint guy told me they probably would - the cracks are less annoying than the slots... bfw.

    What did you fill with. A good epoxy shouldn't shrink enough to crack

    Someone once asked me if they could use my mower. I said "sure, so long as it doesn't leave my yard"

    All the cracks in my slab were cut and filled and still show no signs of cracking 5 years later. But my slab is pretty stable overall. Any signs of movement in the slab as if it's still moving, cracks will appear?
    Ya'll don't know what it's like. Being male, middle class and white.

    Used a 10mm it was fine. Concrete sucked up the epoxy. I'll be buying another kit.

    Some good tips in this doc. The jotun coatings are top quality as well.

    Just been through the exercise. Would do it again. It wasn't too painful and a lot cheaper than my last shed which I paid a pro to do.

    Most of the 12x6 shed was a granny flat prior so once all the bullshit was ripped out the slab was pretty clean due to being under Lino or carpet (Lino glue was fun to remove....) But I still followed the degrease, etch then paint process most on here used. I could have done a third coat I reckon but run out of time to allow it to dry and get my shit out of this horrid wet weather we have had the last few weeks. Good enough for now to keep my OCD at bay while I finish making a mess on it. Used PPG EXT 2k epoxy.

    Just got this done through NuLook floors.
    Garage floor is 5.6mx2.5m
    Cut the concrete so it was 100% flat, bogged any imperfections on the slab, primered, 2 x coats of expoxy, spread the flakes through then 2 coats of clear, came out excellent.

    Where does Juan find a colour palette for the epotec 370? Also can any old bloke walk in off the street and purchase this?
