Best way to paint a floor that gets a lot of traffic?
posted by archimago to education (8 answers total)
I want to paint the floor of my classroom with the periodic table of elements (the industrial flooring squares are the perfect size to make a huge chart on the floor). What kind of paint should I use, and what kind of coating to make it resilient? This is a middle school floor that must endure a lot of foot traffic and movement of tables and chairs, not to mention the periodic cleaning and waxing by maintenance. Is this even possible to have something last more than a few months? Will the chemical floor strippers used by maintenance just strip it clean?
