    If you used a garage epoxy paint kit did you follow the directions? No primer is needed. Just a level and smooth base. What seems to be the problem?

    If it’s peeling up, then the floor has to be cleaned better, and that may require something like TSP and then muriatic acid solution - to get the concrete to bond to the epoxy.

    If the concrete is efflorescencing, then the epoxy won’t stick, over the years, based on my experience. There are chemicals for treating efflorescence, but the source of the water that caused it, must be stopped, first. In my case, it was the yard irrigation system.

    If you can’t get the new epoxy paint to stick, then I’d consider Concrete Stain, which actually permeates the concrete and dyes it.
