Behr 1 part epoxy garage floor paint

Postby JamesDixonLR » Thu May 24, 2018 3:05 pm

I came across this at Home Depot the other day and wondered if anyone has used it on a build? If some cover their camper with epoxy seems like paint with epoxy might be handy. Unless it only comes in gray with glitter. :)

Is it UV stable is my first question. Epoxy itself is not.

The manufacturer (Behr) states this product is for horizontal concrete or masonry, not wood or any vertical surface.

This review would seem to indicate the Behr product is simply acrylic paint with a small amount of epoxy added.

Epoxy Paint or Epoxy Coating; Do you Know the Difference?

There is an abundance of confusion today from homeowners looking to apply and epoxy coating to their garage floor. Should it be epoxy paint or an epoxy coating? Is there a difference? If so, which is best? The easiest way to figure this out is to learn the difference between paint, epoxy paint, and epoxy coatings, in order to eliminate all the confusion and be able to make an informed decision.

The first misnomer that we want to address is that an epoxy coating is not paint. Garage floor paint is a latex acrylic product. Many of the well-known paint manufactures do offer paint with a small amount of epoxy in the mix and refer to them as 1-Part epoxy paint. This allows for better adhesion and durability than standard acrylic paint, but it is not an epoxy product.

The term “epoxy paint” came about when epoxy manufactures took notice of the terminology that people were using when searching for epoxy coatings. The DIY public was intermixing the term “paint” with “coating”. So a marketing decision was made and many well known DIY epoxy flooring manufacturers that you see in home improvement centers decided to brand their products as “epoxy paint” since that is what consumers seemed to be calling it.

As a result, it has only made things more confusing for the consumer. Chances are that when you see something advertised as epoxy paint for your garage, it could be acrylic paint or it could be an epoxy coating. This has led to many people buying a paint for their garage floor when what they thought they were purchasing was an epoxy coating.


What is an epoxy floor coating?

Epoxy is a two component product consisting of one part epoxy resin and one part polyamine hardener. You are required to mix the two parts together prior to application. After mixing you are limited by time and temperature as to how long you have to apply it. With colored epoxies it is the resin that is tinted to give the epoxy color. If it’s not tinted, then it goes on as a clear coating.

There's nothing wrong with gray, in fact some times it turns out right nice. :)

I was wondering about this also.

The company I work for epoxies the floor in various parts of the plant on a regular basis and often has leftover materials. It's very likely to be high quality commercial two part epoxy so I was wondering if it could/would make for a nice finish, if not a sealer that I could possibly paint over with something else

From my research, those paints do not respond well to flexing or expanding. they tend to crack and fall off of surfaces like that. You'll want to look for an epoxy with elasticity probably.

That stuff doesn't even work well on garage floors. I painted my garage floor once and it started chipping off. So, I scraped and cleaned the floors and reapplied for the second time. Most of it chipped right off again. IMO, it's not good.
