    Hi

    Can anyone recommend how best to level a concrete floor in a garage prior to painting ?

    Need to level out dips up to approximately 10mm.

    Is there a self levelling compound designed for industrial applications where the finished material is hard enough to be walked on ?

    I have read about fibre reinforced and resin based products which may do the job ?

    Can these leveling compunds really stand the rough enviroment of a workshop /garage without cracking in time?

    I would think that would depend on how well the surface of the original floor was prepared.
