QUESTION

I want to tile over an epoxy paint that is on concrete. what is the right product t0 use as an adhesive ?

ANSWER

ANSWER - To install tile over an epoxy coating on a concrete floor you need to use an ANSI A118.3 epoxy adhesive.  You will need to scarify the epoxy coating first and make sure there are not contaminates that could interfere with the bond.

The tile attachment to the floor will not be any better than the epoxy attachment to the floor.  So if the epoxy every comes lose, so will the tile, so be ware.
