If your floor has been subjected to oil we recommend first priming with RFC Oil Contamination Primer this will prevent the oil from attacking the paint from below resulting in flaking. This polyurethane-based paint is only microns thick so if you have a rough surface and the decorative aspect is important to you we would recommend smoothing and filling prior to application.
If you’re painting a new garage floor we recommend waiting 4-6 weeks before applying our kits, this will allow any trapped moisture to escape and the concrete to fully cure. If this is not possible you could apply RFC Epoxy Damp Proof Membrane to your floor following which you can paint over instantly. Alternatively, you could coat with a paint that incorporates a primer, like this.
To fill or repair damaged or pitted concrete surfaces use a repair mortar such as RFC Epoxy Fine Grade Mortar. This will result in a smoother, attractive and more professional finish particularly good if you plan to use as an extension of your home.

FAQ’s & Important Notes
How accurate are the colour swatches?
Please note the colour swatches above should be used as a general guide only. For colour critical applications please request a sample prior to ordering or installing.
To avoid any issues with colour between tins your first tin application should cover the whole of the garage floor. Your second tin application should then cover the same space once dried. Do not for example open 1 tin and coat half of the area, leave to dry, then cover the same area and then do the same with the second tin on the other half. This could result in a visible side by side difference in shade. This is a 2 stage application using a full tin on each stage.
How should I prepare the surface?
Concrete and cement-based surfaces should be dust free and any potential contaminants such as previous paint or sealers removed otherwise discolouring of the newly painted surface could occur. This product is a colour sealer and protector, it is not a high build coating and so will not even out rough surfaces. The surface should be adequately prepared before application. No refunds can be offered when the correct preparation and application procedure has not been followed.
What can I do with spare resin or hardener?
For the garage sizes above all of the supplied resin and hardener should be applied. This is true even if this means going into a third coating. If you are happy with the finish and still have spare paint components these need to be disposed of at your local refuse site. These cannot be returned under any circumstances and no partial refund is available.
Is garage floor paint waterproof?
RFC Garage Floor Coating is a polyurethane-based 2 component system that is completely waterproof once dry.
Why is my garage floor paint peeling?
Inferior floor coatings or inadequate preparation can result in paint peeling after installation. Follow these guidelines prior to installation for the best possible results:
- If the surface to be painted is porous it can retain moisture. A potentially damp surface or slab should be primed with a damp proof membrane.
- A new concrete floor contains lots of moisture. You should allow the floor to dry fully before painting. Wait at least 2 weeks before application.
- To ensure maximum adhesion to the surface your floor should be suitably abraded and slightly rough.
- Choosing a professional 2 component system rather than a single component paint will result in a harder more durable surface.
How long does garage floor paint last?
RFC opts for a 2 component system that if installed correctly, cleaned and maintained should last a minimum of 3-5 years and beyond. Cheaper single component paints will show signs of wear or begin to flake within 1-2 years.
