Most coatings will allow you to use silica blasting media to add grit to the slick floor coat. Some provide their own, some approve a list....all depends on the manufacturer as to what they will and won't allow.

Not bad at all. The paint chips are broadcast on top of the final coat and give the floor a pretty decent texture.

Ok, time for me to fess up to being cheap and yet willing to try.

I have about a 20'x20' piece of shop floor that I did want to seal and coat to get an easier to clean floor and something that looked fairly nice.

I vacuumed really well. Used a hard bristle floor brush to loosen stuff. Wet vac'd and mopped that floor a few times. But did not etch in any way for additional bight.

I went to Lowes in Crowley and bought 3 gallons of dark red (maroon) deck paint. I've used it in the past on wooden decks and concrete steps etc. so figured why not. Although I have since wished that I had gone with the gray and not the red. Brighten things up and all. lol

This covering, only two coats, has been on that floor now for 18 years with lots of traffic, moving stuff and sliding on top of, oil and grease spills etc etc. A quick clean or mopping has it looking as good as when first put down. Although there are a few stains etc, but I can live with that.
