Premium Heavy 24 Gauge Copper A copper countertop crafted with our premium Heavy 24 Gauge Copper will require just a few coats of our COPPERLAC lacquer to preserve the color copper finish. The 24-gauge copper can be cut with a pair of hand shears or tin snips and is easily adhered to your desired surface using construction adhesive (liquid nails). The end result is a rustic, more traditional copper/metal appearance with very little gloss or sheen—a true work of art!
Light 36 Gauge Copper Our Light 36 Gauge Copper can be used for a copper countertop by first applying a single base coat of our COPPERLAC lacquer, followed by a single coat of our self-leveling epoxy; this epoxy is convenient and easy to apply. The lacquer provides a seal coat for the color copper, this allows the epoxy to bond to the surface providing a 1/8" thick durable glass-like finish. The end result is simply amazing to behold as the copper shines with brilliance through the crystal-like coating! You can purchase our lacquer and epoxy in our Tools and Supplies section. Our 36 gauge copper can be cut with a utility knife or sharp scissors and adhered to your surface using standard contact cement. You can watch our Bar Top Tutorial Video since the same steps apply when doing a countertop using the 36 gauge color copper.
Both countertops options extremely durable and maintenance-free; providing many years of use! They clean up easily with warm soapy water.
These are both DIY projects that are easy to do if you are handy with a few tools. However, if you prefer to have a professional do the install, please refer to our List of Professional Installers or contact us today. Our professionals are standing by to assist you. 1-888-565-3180
