I'm not familiar with the "Weatherbeater" brand, but lacking any other
discription, it just sounds like a 2-part epoxy paint, like all the others.
Except, for $15 a kit (if not expired on shelf-life or by mis-storage)
that's one HELL of a buy.

It's been decades since I knew their suppliers, but Sears paints used to be
made by Dutch Boy. They had a long relationship but it could be long gone by
now.

Its my understanding that if you do not do a properly wash the acid/base of
the concrete will react and cause your epoxy to peel or separate fairly
quickly. Any epoxy. I am thinking base as the wash down if I recall is an
acid.

One must provide a bite for the epoxy to be attached to.

My shop was done before I got here and I have spots in it.
Mostly where scraped and such.
