f you have lav­ished money and at­ten­tion on your hobby — whether it is clas­sic cars or mo­tor­bikes — you’ll want to en­sure they’re stored in a garage or work­shop re­flec­tive of the ef­fort you have put into them. But one area that is of­ten over­looked in garag­ing is floor­ing.

“Most garage and work­shop floors are con­crete,” says Hyl­ton Jones of Coat­ing Tech­nolo­gies Ltd, “and the very na­ture of garages, work­shops, and clas­sic cars means that spills do hap­pen. Con­crete gets dirty very eas­ily, and what a lot of peo­ple don’t re­al­ize is that it re­tains a lot of dust, too. It’s not the best sur­face to store, or work on, your clas­sic car or mo­tor­bike.”

Coat­ing Tech­nolo­gies’ Cotec Tuff Floor WB Epoxy is a wa­ter-based thin-film epoxy floor­ing, which has re­cently un­der­gone sig­nif­i­cant de­vel­op­ment to pro­duce a tough, durable, and chem­i­cally re­sis­tant fin­ish — that means no more stains.

“Most other epoxy floor­ing so­lu­tions are sol­vent based, but Tuff Floor WB Epoxy is wa­ter based, mean­ing you don’t get the nasty smell or ef­fects,” Hyl­ton says, “and be­ing water­borne, it’s also ex­tremely easy to ap­ply for the DIYER, and is avail­able in a range of colours, with a colour-match­ing op­tion also avail­able.”

He adds that “Tuff Floor WB Epoxy is ap­plied over cor­rectly pre­pared con­crete that has ei­ther been lightly ground us­ing a di­a­mond grinder, or acid etched. Acid etch­ing is easy, as we have a pow­dered acid that is sim­ply dis­solved in wa­ter and ap­plied to the sur­face with a broom. Once it has stopped ‘fizzing’, the floor is hosed off and al­lowed to dry.” Hyl­ton has a word of ad­vice, too — “Since con­crete floors are all dif­fer­ent, if you have any doubt, or would like a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of what’s re­quired, it’s easy to call us for ad­vice.”
