I used the RustOleum epoxy in my shop. The slab was about 6 months old, and I pressure washed it, etched it with the acid cleaner, then pressure washed it again. Then I waited overnight before applying the epoxy. The floor looks great after a year, and has yet to chip or scatch, even after moving in my 850 lb gun safe (on a dolly) and dropping miscellaneous tools on it.

I used the paint chips that came with the kit, and haven’t had any traction problems, but adding silica sand certainly wouldn’t hurt.

I would use this product again in a heartbeat.
