    They put friction media (i.e., sand) on the final layer of mine and that provided traction while still keeping the shiny look. It`s worn down a lot (steel-wheeled floorjack, jackstands, etc.) but it`s still providing OK traction when covered with soapy water during a wash.

    Most of my painted concrete floors do *not* have any friction media, and yes indeed they`re a bit treacherous when wet

    Agreed, we did the traction additive on part of my friends and it was hard to see where it was unless you got close.

    The full flake method is still glossy but not anywhere as close. It also has zero depth. I just had my new garage done that way. Lots of traction though!

    Re: Expoxy or Racedeck for Garage Flooring

    Looking to get my 3-car garage done with new flooring and I`ve had 2 companies come out and both quoted the same price however two different products. One quoted a water-based metallic epoxy flooring phoenix top coat and the other a solid-based Polyaspartic top coat. From my research polyaspartic is a newer tech and higher gloss with UV resistance. seems to cost more generally but I was curious if we had any experts in here who can guide me in a direction?

    Water based certainly raises eyebrows. High solids epoxy is what is time tested. What are the warranties for each? What prep work are they doing? How long has each company been in business?
