I found a thread on Woodalls that said it was made by ZEP.
Woodalls Open Roads Forum: Tech Issues: Waxing our RV motorhome...
Which says:
"It comes in variations 1 thru 4, all in a similar jug except for the little number on the label.

#1 is a stripper, #2 is a base sealer for porous surfaces, like concrete, #3 is wax and #4 is an after wax application floor cleaner."

Which makes me wonder if anybody has tried using the base sealer first?

Zep in Canada does not list Red Max. That makes me question if it does not go by a different name in Canada. Perhaps it is this:
ZEP - Zep Wet Look Floor Finish 3.78L - CAIMAGE128 - Home Depot Canada

Roy,

Doesn't that just mean another camping trip to the states to stop at a Lowe's?

It could be a day trip for me Cindy, I'm thinking of the others who might not find it so easy to do. Zep is a big company in both the USA and Canada, with a lot of products, they would not be the first to rebrand a product across borders.

Roy I noticed you posted the product from a Home Depot site have you checked there...It maybe that Lowes has the product locked up in the U.S. and Home Depot in Canada, because I have not found it in any of the Home Depot stores I've been to in the US, around here Home Depot does NOT carry any of the Zep products..I also noticed the items are in blue jugs in the U.S. they are in red jugs don't have the reason why my be for the different markets..............RANDY

I'm pretty sure they're the same products. I checked my local Lowe's and Home Depot here in Toronto a couple months ago and found the same products Roy listed at Home Depot. In addition to the wet look high gloss they also had a slightly cheaper "high traffic" version which I assume has less of a gloss. I'm not sure which version would be the Redmax product. I didn't find anything at Lowe's but I was in a hurry and didn't ask either.

I would think using the sealer would help, maybe you'd need fewer finish coats?

I'm pretty sure this is the same stuff they use on the floors at work, I'll ask about it and what brand they use.

Kevin

It is quite possible Randy, this is from one of their web-sites (they have more web sites too, depending on the market):
"Zep has a solid presence throughout America and in the international marketplace, reaching into every major city in North America, and countries around the world on five continents."

While we are on the topic of ZEP, I found this link:
Stella Blue - 2008 Haulout

That says they used the ZEP floor stripper and Bar Keepers Friend to remove the gel coat oxidation, I quote:

"I watched the wax bake onto my topsides.
It left a horrible buildup, that I'd
tried to remove for the last two years.
A wonderful woman on the next dock over
suggested that I use Zep Floor Wax stripper,
following the directions and
using really hot water.
It worked incredibly well, and also
chemically removed all the gelcoat oxidation.
It took two iterations of stripper,
scrubbing with a soft abrasive
and a white 3M scrub pad.
But it worked really well,
and my topsides look great again."

Thanks Kevin,

Well the floors really do need redoing at the office. Let's see now, I need some stripper, sealer and wax.

All the Zep literature says to use a Rayon mop.

A janitor gave me some good wax he uses in hospitals a few years back with his instructions to specifically damp mop with only cold water for 3 days after applying seems to help level and harden the wax. Maybe this might help too!

Not that I dug a little deeper into the closet and found some Zep Stripper, so I am 1/3 the way there.

When using Red Max, have any of you had problems with dust getting onto the finish before it dryed? I think that I am going to do this to my 36 foot motorhome come spring and you guys are the experts on the topic. No place to get it inside that I can thing of that would not be dusty, so I will probably end up doing it outside.

Which RedMax product is being used, the sealer or the finisher? Lowes has both as well as the stripper. Should I buy all 3 items or use Barkeepers Friend and apply what? Thanks
