Sealing a friable concrete floor.

    I'm looking to sort out the concrete floor in the garage, which is dusty but otherwise clean.

    A sealer of some kind would do in the first instance; anything that will allow me to brush or wipe the surface clean. There seem to be hundreds of options out there (example), so looking for some guidance.

    I've had a look at a few floor paints, but it sounds like these do not adhere well to bare dusty surfaces, even when brushed and vacuumed beforehand. An epoxy product might do the trick, mind.

    I would think so, as in info,they say it creates a hardwearing surface.

    Not home at moment to look,but there might be a suitable floor paint for dusty floor available.

    Sweep floor to remove excess dust

    2 coats SBR diluted to manufacturers recomendation for concrete sealing (wickes sell SBR 1ltr size, not sure on other places, often only 5 ltr size)

    2 coats floor paint. I’ve used Leyland and it’s held up well to wear. Also take a look at Bedec Paints, superb products. They will also send you a free sample of paint/s if you contact them, you may want to give it a try first

    As you say, floor paints will soon fail, but as most cases, due to poor or no prep - simple really
