A real epoxy floor coating should not be applied to ceramic tiles. Ceramic does not have the right texture for epoxy coatings, and even if you sand it down, there are still adhesion and durability issues on tile and grout.

Hereof, what kind of paint do you use on ceramic tiles?

For the incredible resilience of the ceramic tiles' slippery shine, there are only two types of paint that can stand it. Alkyd paint is better for dry tiles while oil-based paint is the best choice for tiles that get wet, such as those in bathrooms or in kitchens.

Secondly, can you put epoxy flooring over tile? Epoxy paint is often used to seal both concrete and wood floors. If you want to tile over concrete or wood, and there's a thick coat of epoxy on the surface already, you can tile right over it, but prepare first. Epoxy is hard, which is good for laying tile, but it's also slick and glossy, which isn't.

People also ask, can you skim coat over ceramic tile?

ANSWER - In theory you can stucco over ceramic tile, but the conditions have to be correct and you have to prepare the tile in a special way. The ceramic tile needs to be scarified and a skim coat of a latex/polymer modified thin-set would then need to be applied. Then you can apply a stucco finish over the thin-set.

Can you epoxy over paint?

Epoxy over Painted Wood. Water based paints are best and fast drying. The epoxy can go over them in about 24 hours. If an oil-based paint is used, you must apply 3 coats of oil-based polyurethane to seal the surface before applying a seal coat of our UltraClear epoxy.
