    Moisture in the concrete will cause the vinyl to fail down the road, and any epoxy on top of it will crack. Seen it done.

    Wasn't the question, Mosh.

    Will the vinyl graphic have a reaction to the epoxy ??

    In that cause you might want to put a coat of clear on the bare floor under the decal first.

    He is going to paint the floor 1st, lay the graphic and then use a clear epoxy to seal it.

    surely you don't me rustoleum out of a rattle can??? this guy is way over his head if so. he'll need to seal the cement first, apply the graphic and then use a two part system.

    why is so much time and energy dedicated in the graphics industry to douche-ing up stuff?

    the clear said it was a two part "solvent based"... i'd do some testing for sure.
