Default What will hold up on floor epoxy?

I have an auto shop I'm working on and they want black stripes painted on the floor in between the lifts. The floors are SW armorseal floor epoxy. This is a pretty high traffic area so I'm wondering what would hold up the best. My BM rep suggested oil based dtm. Thought I would see what you guys thought? Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Why not use more epoxy?

Don't mix two different systems (Oil base over epoxy) If you know its SW armorseal, stick with that. Use a light degreaser and scrub sponge to clean the area followed by soap and water. Should be good to go after 24 hours

Thanks. I'm just looking for opinions on different options. Was a little weird my rep wants me to use a dtm. So I wanted some more opinions.

After 30 days, ArmorSeal has to be abraded before re-coat.

Which means you'll have to clean the area and then sand the area some. You don't have to remove the coating in those areas, just rough up the coating pretty decently to allow for better adhesion of another coat.

I'd do what others have suggested, stick with ArmorSeal. Why pick an inferior product to go ontop of a superior product? Kind of like putting interior paint on top of an exterior painted door, your swapping the top coat for a lesser performing product.

Hopefully you've come to the realization that most reps don't have a clue about the coatings they're selling.

Floor epoxy.

Clean it, sand it with an orbital sander using 40 grit, and lay down some fresh material. If you try to use anything else on it, it will fail - rapidly.
