What Paint to Use for a Garage, Driveway or Concrete Floor that Won’t Peel?
We’ve all seen it; unsightly concrete with peeling and flaking paint. Paving paint, concrete paint, floor paint; essentially any kind of paint that is going to withstand foot or vehicle traffic is going to, eventually, lose its adhesion to the surface it was applied to. Even with sufficient floor preparation, paint does not have the tactile strength to permanently bond to concrete.
So why do we keep using Paint on Concrete? There are two main reasons:
1. Big companies keep selling them to us, because they want our repeat business in the future. There’s no money in permanent solutions.
2. It’s the cheapest and easiest way to keep our garages, driveways, halls and sidewalks looking nice. Or is it?
ERFLA Saves the Day!
ERFLA have released their ‘No-Peel Paint‘ that they have labelled as a permanent solution for painting concrete surfaces. Despite what the name suggests, ERFLA’s No-Peel Paint is not actually a paint, but a resin coating that will not peel or de-laminate. It behaves somewhat like a paint, and it is DIY friendly, just like paint. It will seal and re-colour any surface to any colour without taking away the texture of the surface beneath it. You will not need to re-coat your concrete surface in 6-months time due to unsightly flaking.
