Flex seal on top of Drylok to smooth out floor?

Hello! I'm converting and armoire into an enclosure and have finished sealing the inside with 3 coats of drylok original. As you probably know, (I didn't know 😝) it leaves a really textured and gritty base which will make for cleaning the bottom tricky and it would tear any towels up. So I was wondering if i put some flex seal on top of the Drylok layer on the floor, if that would smooth out the rough texture enough so I could wipe the bottom clean when the time comes?

Or any other ideas for a smoothing/leveling compound to use instead. I'd prefer not to use a tray inside as the size isn't common and would cost alot of money for a custom size. Thanks!

Flex seal leaves a tacky rubbery feel even when dry similar to caulk. Good product and could probably be wiped clean without issue, but I imagine if it was dry, the paper towels would tear as we’ll sometimes.

I would ensure the drylok is fully cured before adding flex seal on top. Flex seal dries smoother and will still need a cure time. You do not want to add anything to the enclosure until there is no odor left. Typically it can take a week for all odors to dissipate.

That's fine! I don't have a chameleon yet. I'm slowly building the enclosure up now so I don't have to rush.
