Can I paint stripes on Ashford Formula treated concrete?

Certainly. There is no chemical incompatibility between Ashford Formula treated concrete and paints commonly used for striping. Once the Ashford Formula has penetrated and reacted with the portland cement, there really is no Ashford left. What remains is a densified version of the concrete that was there in the first place. The surface is slightly richer in silicates, but since silicates are in concrete anyway, there is no chemical reason for a paint not to bond. There can be problems with a good mechanical bond if the floor surface lacks bite or profile. This, however, is related to the floor finish, not to the presence or absence of the Ashford Formula. In such cases, the paint manufacturer’s instructions for roughening the surface should be strictly followed.
