24 Gauge vs. 36 Gauge

Posted by

The question we get asked a lot is what is the difference between the 36 gauge and the 24 gauge? The 24 gauge is about as thick as a credit card and needs to be cut with hand shears or a carbide blade on a router.  It is then rolled and adhered with liquid nails using a 3/16" v notch trowel.  You can then cover it with 2-3 coats of lacquer and it is ready to go.  The 36 Gauge is a lot thinner, about 6 sheets of aluminum foil, and can be cut with scissors or razor blade.  It is rolled on using contact cement and must be covered using lacquer and then our self-leveling epoxy.  The epoxy gives a glass like coating that is extremely hard and durable.  Both are excellent options and you can see the differences below.
