Hello, i have a garage that use to be a living area. i took up the old carpet that was indoor/outdoor type. the floor has old glue residue.pretty much imbeded into the concrete. But i want to paint the floor. it is a two car garage. one half of the garage is my weight equipt. and the other half is for my small car. Question what type of paint can i use...epoxy or some industrial floor covering?
What is Devguard 4160? What about Polyurethane coating?
Any help will be appreciated. Gwog

You can rent a floor scraper and a grinder to remove the residue. It's no fun at all. If you want to do this get with a good rental yard and see what their equipment and you skill level can do. In any case use a good floor scraper before you paint.

Don't know anything about the products you mention. One high-end builder we do work for paints all his garage floors and swears by Pittsburg. Claims he's never had it mar (which I doubt).

Whatever you do, scrape the floor with a floor scraper, ask the sales person how to use the product, read the label and follow ALL instructions, no matter how trivial they may seem. Sticking paint to a floor is a whole lot of chemistry.
