Below is a paint formula that was handed down to me that works well: Paint with mixture. The formula I used was 4 gallons of Flat Black to 1 gallon of Gloss Black to 1 gallon of Water. That did my entire floor, 2 coats. I have no idea who came up with the original formula. The only reason I do it is because I had no time to research what to use other than call up someone I knew who had a black masonite floor. My only guess would be to make it easier to sweep.
