Painting a Floor

I have a 2000 sq foot area of very old 9x9, asbestos containing, vinyl floor tiles that I would like to paint over with the epoxy paint they use for commercial garages.
There are some chips out of the tiles, mostly along the edges and some tiles that are cracked.
I need advise on how to repair the chips and crack and fill in some gaps and what product would be the best for painting the floor.


Re: Painting a Floor

To fill in floor holes and cracks, I use a product called Fixall.
Holes and cracks must be dry and clean. When you clean them try not to stir up any dust. Just follow the instructions on the package. You get it in flooring places and HD/Lowes.

Self leveling ceement will also work. You can make tiny batches in a cup. Mixed to the consistency of thick chocolate milk.

Re: Painting a Floor

Rock hard putty or floorstone would also work.
