EPOXYSHIELD®
CLEAR FINISH FLOOR COATING KIT
.DESCRIPTION AND USES
.
PRODUCT APPLICATION
®
Moist Concrete - New concrete should be allowed to cure
for 28 days before application of any coating. If there is
any doubt about the dryness of the concrete, conduct a
test by simply taping a piece of 4 mil plastic sheet 2’x2’ on
the bare concrete for 24 hours. Be sure to tape all four
sides. If water droplets form on the inside of the plastic or
if the concrete appears wet (darker in color), moisture is
trapped in the floor and Rust-Oleum Moisture Stop should
be used prior to applying the coating.
EpoxyShield Clear Finish Floor Coating Kit is designed to
provide excellent hardness, adhesion and durability on
properly prepared concrete floors. EpoxyShield Clear
Finish Floor Coating has excellent resistance to salt, oil,
gasoline and other harsh chemicals.
EpoxyShield Clear Finish Floor Coating Kit is designed for
enclosed garages ONLY. It is not intended for areas
exposed to direct sunlight. DO NOT leave container in
direct sunlight. It is recommended that this product be
applied in a multi-directional (north, south, east and west)
motion to help ensure proper coating thickness.
The EpoxyShield Clear Finish Floor Coating Kit includes
the following:
 Instructions
 Anti-Skid Additive & Stir Stick
 2-Part Burst Pouch
Items not supplied with the kit which need to be purchased
separately:
 Roller Frame, Tray, ⅜” Roller Cover
 Extension Pole
 Stiff Bristled Broom or Scrub Brush
 Squeegee (for the most effective cleaning and to
speed drying)
 3” Paint Brush
 Heavy-Duty Degreaser
 Concrete Etch (for use on bare surfaces only)
Sealed Concrete - Check for curing compounds or other
types of sealers by dripping a small amount of water onto
the floor. If water soaks in, the surface is suitable for
coating. If water beads up on the concrete, this is an
indication that a sealer is present which may prevent the
coating form adhering properly. A test application is
suggested to ensure proper adhesion will develop.
Sanding or mechanical abrading may be required if proper
adhesion does not develop.
Poorly Bonded Paint – Remove any loose paint by
sanding and scraping; then test adhesion of the previously
coated floor. Check the adhesion of the previous coating
by cutting a small X in the coating down to the concrete
using a sharp razor knife. Press a piece of 5” duct tape
over the center of the X cut, and then pull off with one
quick snap. If more than 25% of the paint comes off, DO
NOT coat the floor with EpoxyShield until the old paint is
completely removed.
Other optional items that may be needed include:

If the previous coating is well adhered, de-gloss the
surface using 40-80 grit sandpaper, vacuum the surface
and wipe down using urethane grade MEK prior to
application.

SURFACE PREPARATION
Remove oil spots with a scrub brush and EpoxyShield
Heavy Duty Degreaser (sold separately) or Rust-Oleum
Cleaner & Degreaser (sold separately). Scrub thoroughly,
then rinse. Repeat as needed.
Use EpoxyShield Concrete Etch (sold separately) or
Rust-Oleum Clean & Etch (sold separately) following
manufacturer’s instructions. (DO NOT add concrete etch
directly to the coating). DO NOT use muriatic acid.
Pre-wet the entire floor using a hose; then remove the
pooled water. Use a plastic watering can to evenly
distribute the etch solution over a 10’ x 10’ section of floor.
Scrub vigorously with a bristle brush to loosen dust and
dirt. Keep the entire section wet until it has been etched
and rinsed; then move to the next section.
Once completed, rinse and squeegee the entire floor to
remove any traces of etch. DO NOT leave pooled water
on the floor. Etch will not discolor driveways or harm grass
or plants if rinsed thoroughly.

SURFACE PREPARATION (cont.)
APPLICATION
Rub your fingers over the dry floor. If dust or powder
comes off on your fingers, repeat scrubbing and rinsing
until the floor is clean. Allow the floor to dry completely.
Note: if the floor is not thoroughly cleaned and rinsed, the
coating may not adhere properly.
Apply only when air, material and floor temperatures are
between 50-90°F (10-32°C). Extreme cold application
temperatures may slow the cure time. Do not apply in
direct sunlight. Do not coat the floor if it is raining or if
extremely damp conditions exist. The concrete surface
must be completely dry at the time of the application to
achieve proper adhesion.
Note: Recently coated surfaces will need to be dry
enough to allow foot traffic before applying the clear
Finish. Allow a minimum of 24 hours dry time after coating
with EpoxyShield Floor Coating before applying clear.
Apply within 5 days to avoid sanding. Ensure the surface
is clean and dry before applying.
WARNING! If you scrape, sand or remove old paint, you
may release lead dust. LEAD IS TOXIC. EXPOSURE TO
LEAD DUST CAN CAUSE SERIOUS ILLNESS, SUCH AS
BRAIN DAMAGE, ESPECIALLY IN YOUNG CHILDREN.
PREGNANT WOMEN SHOULD ALSO AVOID
EXPOSURE. Wear a NIOSH-approved respirator to
control lead exposure. Clean up carefully with a HEPA
vacuum and a wet mop. Before you start, find out how to
protect yourself and your family by contacting the National
Lead Information Hotline at 1-800-424-LEAD or log on to
www.epa.gov/lead.
For brushing, use a good quality synthetic brush to trim
the edges (if desired). For rolling, use a ⅜” nap roller
cover and 9” roller frame to apply the coating evenly to the
floor in a “M” and “W” pattern in 4’ x 4’ sections. Keep a
wet edge to prevent lap marks or gloss differences. Do
not apply thicker than recommended or allow to pool.
The product must be used within the pot life indicated or
gloss may appear uneven.
If using anti-skid additive, pour the mixed clear coating into
a clean plastic gallon pail. Add the anti-skid slowly while
mixing with a stir stick. Mix thoroughly until the additive is
evenly dispersed. Note; Some settling of the anti-skid will
occur. Anti-skid additive near the bottom of the can is
normal. Stir frequently during use to minimize settling. If
applying more than one coat, mix anti-skid additive into
the final topcoat. Repeat mixing and application process
for each additional pouch.
MIXING
MIX ONLY ONE POUCH AT A TIME. Both components
and environment should be pre-conditioned to a minimum
of 40ºF (4ºC) prior to use. Be sure the air and surface
temperatures are at least 5º above the dew point.
Thoroughly mix the material in the pouch by shaking it
back and forth and squeezing each side of pouch. NOTE:
EpoxyShield Clear Finish Topcoat must be applied
within 5 days of EpoxyShield Garage Floor Coating.
Combine the two components Part A and Part B by
placing the pouch on the ground and rolling it from Part A
side towards Part B. The pressure created by rolling the
pouch will force the middle seal to burst, allowing the two
components to mix together. Any clumps need to be
massaged to break them up to ensure proper blending.
DRY AND RECOAT TIMES
Dry times are based on 70°F (21°C) and 50% relative
humidity. Temperature and humidity may affect the drying
time. The surface should be ready for light foot traffic in
12-16 hours and normal foot traffic in 24-48 hours. The
surface is drive ready in 3 days.
CLEAN-UP
Tools and mixing equipment can be cleaned with acetone
or MEK solvents. Allow brushes, rollers and any unused
product to harden and dispose according to local
regulations.
Thoroughly mix the materials by shaking the pouch back
and forth and squeezing the edges and corners toward the
center of the pouch. Mix for 2-3 minutes. The product is
activated and must be applied within 1 hour. Once the
material is thoroughly mixed, use scissors to cut a corner
off the pouch and pour into a roller tray. Note: Coated
concrete produces a smoother surface and can become
slippery when wet. For a slip-resistant surface, add the
included Anti-Skid Additive prior to application.
