    I recently painted a tile floor of a small bathroom with acrylic cement paint. I'm worried that the paint scrape off the tile. Is there a sealer/clear coat I can use to prevent this?

    There is nothing you can put ontop of a paint to make it bond better to the substrate.

    It's ceramic tile from the 50's, 1" x 1 " squares.

    The prep work for paint is under it not over the top
    There is nothing that I know of that can go over paint to have it adhere to the surface
    that the paint is applied to

    i agree. but what about a protective coat. let's say a small pebble comes in on someone's shoe, and then it is raked against the floor by someone else, a clear hard coat would protect against that.

    I think your window to use the right product like an epoxy has passed. But I don't really understand coating tile with anything. Seems like a maintenance nightmare.
    I think the only thing you could use is a 2 part epoxy primer. Likely 5x the cost of the paint you used.

    It's a small bathroom, 99% if the time, it's only used by me. Serves as a guest bathroom when company is there. Has green floor tile and in the shower, I painted the outside edge tiles of the shower with tile paint. Now, it's a grey/white/steel color scheme.

    What about a satin poly used for wood floors?

    if you get moisture under it it
    will peel off in sheets . all of
    that type of sealant will do the
    same thing .
