    Please call our technical department at 800-445-1754 for assistance.

  2. Q Can this 8508-1 be used on an industrial type floor without a clear top coat? I have used the U Coat it water based epoxy with the polyurethane clear coat. The clear coat peeled off where power steering fluid got on it. I don't want a glossy finish. More of a semi gloss or satin. I just need it to clean up easily. It will be in a racecar fab shop. We patched a lot of holes and a couple big cracks with the Abocrete. It worked really well. I am tired of grinding though.Thanks
