How to Get a Glossy Garage Floor

I recently applied BEHR Premium 2-Part Epoxy Garage Floor Coating in my garage which looks terrific, but I would prefer a glossier finish.  Can I apply Behr Wet Look Sealer as a top coat or will this damage the integrity of the epoxy coating?  Do you have any suggestions?

Good question.  Increasingly, I have seen this technique used to improve the look and durability of garage floors.  The 2-Part epoxy systems are good and durable, but the sheen does not have the same punch as the wet look offers.

To get the straight answer, I turned to the expert paint makers at BEHR who tell the answer is yes.  BEHR (#985) Wet-Look Sealer can be applied over BEHR (#950) Premium 2-Part Epoxy Garage Floor Coating as long as the existing coating was applied to a properly prepared surface and the coating is in sound condition. To do this you'll need to clean the entire surface with BEHR (#990) Concrete Cleaner & Degreaser and rinse thoroughly. The surface must be completely dry before applying the Wet-Look Sealer and you'll nee to plan to park your car tires on corrugated cardboard for 14 days after applying the Wet-Look Sealer to make sure it has plenty of time to dry.
