I used one coat and had more than half of the 2.5 L tin left. I'll assume that the second coat wouldn't absorb as much and should be fine with this size.Only comment I can make is that, even though I left it to cure for a number of weeks, when I installed shelving units the paint did chip quite easily and I would recommend 2 coats.


Before your first coat, you should have put acetone on the surface to lift grime and and make the surface more porous. I'm a professional painter for over 24 years. Painted factory floors more times than I can remember. Without this key element. It would have still chipped with 6 coats on it. It didn't key properly! Hope this helps others looking at this.

Any good for a fibreglass balcony floor??
Can I use outside
Anyone know if this would be efficient on a hut roof ? I'm thinking the polyurethane coating could make it water tight , fed up buying roof felt that still let's water in ! Appreciate any info

It's recommended on their site that you use it for internal spaces only

An EPDM membrane is probably the way to go.
Is this any good for cellar floors.

What about cellar walls?

I agree with the EPDM suggestion. Did a workshop roof with it and its superb. Easy to fit and very long lasting. Several companies sell kits on eBay with everything you need. Has to go on a clean dry smooth wooden base, so you might need to budget for replacing the wooden sheeting. I used OSB roofing boards from the larger B&Qs. No amount of floor paint will ever make a roof water-tight!

Wondering how much paint would take for a normal standard size 1 car garage? Is it 2 coates or 1 is fine?

You need to put a good coat of this on before the felt, not just felt alone, will sort it

Can't believe I'm giving this advice lol, I'm a celtic draft. You cannot put this on your roof 100%.

You’re into a whole world of sticky mess with the bitumen. Make sure you have plenty of WD-40 at hand to clean it off everything!

Then what are you going to do with the big drum of left over bitumen? As someone who recently discovered an old leaking drum of leftover bitumen in a shed and then had to deal with the problem.. I “dislike” this stuff.

IMO it’s old school and there are much better solutions than felt and bitumen out there these days.
Edited by: "xciv" 27th Jan
You don't have to buy this big drum, you can get it in 2.5 litres. Was just the product I was sharing. It is messy, but very effective. The guy has been having ongoing problems. This is in my opinion his cheapest & an effective alternative.
Good price but I find it too soft, doesn't last, and chemicals cause it to blister. Wouldn't use again, I'd go for something epoxy based

How do you apply acetone? How much would you need for a standard single car garage?
Some shocking reviews on Screwfix site
I would stick with two pack epoxy paint

You apply the acetone with a Jerrycan, similar to what you would use to watering plants with the sprinkler connected. Covers more ground and use less acetone. That'll lift all build up and create for perfect application. Will become very dusty, due to opening of the pours of the concrete. Give it a good brushing. Hover some corners if needed. 2.5 with about 50ml of white spirit. Long pile 9inch roller, is what makes this paint go further. Will last for years. Be sure to get any oil on the floor off with the acetone.

Cheers for the advice Stepehn_Griffin and tips you've added to this thread!

Now the next question, after already painting with one coat, how do i undo what I've already done to apply the acetone on as you've suggested?

Many thanks

Scrape off what's lose, and maybe more will come off in places where it hasn't keyed properly. Pour acetone on the flour and what comes off is the areas that needed treated. It sounds like hassle, but really isn't that much considering it's a small area. Will get many many years out of it.

Many thanks for the advice and it never keyed properly in places as it can still be wiped off on the grazed areas.

I'll definitely follow your advice and sort when temperatures get higher as it was initially painted during November when it was cold and thought that was the reason it never adhered correctly.

Once again, many thanks Stephen_Griffin

You can get it in most hardware & paint shops. A 5 litre drum will do you. Make sure you use a jerrycan with a sprinkler on it, 2.5 litres of floor paint. Be sure to wear gloves with the acetone. As long as you have the preparation done right. You should get 20 years out of the floor. My suggestion, because you'll already have the garage floor clear. I'd definitely give it 2 coats. Be generous applying the paint, but not overly generous, where if it's not rolled out tight you'll end up with small skinned puddles of paint. Good luck Raj.
Is this any good for painting exposed brickwork to form a feature wall
My 12 month old concrete floor has been sealed with a 3:1 water/SBR mix. I managed to get hold of a 2.5l tin of this before they sold out everywhere.
Will I be ok to paint straight on top now that the concrete is dust free? Would 2.5l be sufficient for 14m2? I know the tin suggests it but in reality sometimes a surface will use more.

Yes it would be fine. Use a long 9inch long pile roller on it.
