I was going to say.The stage was a semi-gloss black when I came in which led to an awful amount of reflection. We searched for over a week to find Flat Black Porch and Floor, but nobody would mix it for us. We wound up going with Black Satin Porch and Floor from Sherwin Williams, which actually ended up more of an eggshell sheen.. It's held up pretty well and cut down on the light bounce.
Just a good quality sealing. Any paint comes up over time and then you get trapped in a painting cycle.I'm not sure this is too far off topic for this thread, but I have a concrete shop floor to paint, what do you guys like for that purpose?
No report? Would be nice know what you found.To add to this conversation:
I am currently in the processing of testing paint products vs hardboard in my venue. We just finished a full replace of all our old Masonite surface and I am working hard to ensure that the paint is right. I have scrap cuts left over from the install and each has a different paint product on it. The 4 that I currently am testing are Roscoe Tough Prime, Roscoe Color Coat, a new formulation of the Tough Prime that is still in development, and PPG Breakout. Each test surface was prepped by wiping them clean and then allowing 24 hours to rest to ensure that there was no moisture in the hardboard. I then covered each surface with 2 coats of each test paint and left all 4 to cure for 72 hours. This morning I put a strip of Pro Gaff, a strip of spike tape, a section was painted with another water based paint, and then all of these have been left to sit for 24 hours. Tomorrow I am going to peel up the tape that is on each to check adhesion, and repeat the process with the second layer of the misc paint. I will also recover the water based product with the original sample and repeat the process again. (I am still waiting on a few sample products from rustolium)
At this point, I am very impressed with the PPG product. It had the smoothest coverage and looked very clean when it dried. I am hopeful that it will hold up to all the tests the rest of this week.
Like gaffergreenia said, what is the goal? Different color, dusting, cover existing stains, other? Worried about slip prevention?I'm not sure this is too far off topic for this thread, but I have a concrete shop floor to paint, what do you guys like for that purpose?
