Bar Top & Tabletop Epoxy for Restaurants and Homes (COMMERCIAL GRADE)
*Email from a recent customer: I am a contractor and I did a bar top with your epoxy and it turned out great. We get many compliments as people just rave about how nice it looks. For the table tops I tried to save some money and went with an epoxy I purchased locally in a store. I had mixed results. It looks cool, but has many flaws because the epoxy has dimples, high and low spots that we couldn't get out. I wish I would have used your epoxy for the table tops because it is a much higher quality product. I'll send in some photos of the bar top shortly.

This product is a 100% solid, two component, clear polymer coating that is mixed at a 1 to 1 ratio by volume. Each kit contains a bottle of resin and a bottle of hardener. The product cures to a clear, high build, glass like finish that resists scratching, yellowing and will not distort with age. Items coated with it will become permanently preserved and protected for your enjoyment throughout a lifetime. This product will not exhibit blushing or sweat out under high humidity conditions.
We recommend that a lacquer seal coat be applied to the copper surface using CopperLac. The seal coat is brushed or sprayed on in a thin layer to seal the surface of the copper in order for the epoxy to adhere well to it. If you are not using our copper, and your surface is going to be wood only, you will not use lacquer; instead, paint on a thin seal coat of epoxy first to seal any pores in the wood surface and help prevent air bubbles from forming in the epoxy coat.
For best results the product should be used at temperatures from 75-85 degrees F. The room which you are working should be clean, dry, dust and insect free.
Please not that although this product will resist yellowing better than other epoxies it is NOT 100% UV resistant. Continuous outdoor UV exposure over months or years will cause the finish to lose its gloss and cause gradual changes in color.
See the coverage charts shown below to calculate the amount you will need for your area. Remember not to combine seal and flood coat coverage's. Flood coats are designed to go on approximately 1/8" thick, which is about three times thicker than that of a seal coat.
Working Temperature of Product:
The working room temperature must be above 75 degrees, several hours prior to mixing the epoxy. We recommend that the product be brought inside and acclimated to room temperature, as it will be cold during winter shipping months. Use space heaters if necessary to ensure the temperature remains above 75 degrees in cold areas, such as garages and basements. It is extremely important that the temperature remain above 75 degrees for a full 72 hours, in order for the epoxy to cure. High or low humidity and higher temperatures (75-110 degrees) are perfectly fine for curing; the epoxy cures much faster with higher temperatures.
*Please Note: 1 Gallon Combined = 1/2 Gallon Resin + 1/2 Gallon Hardener
**Pouring over the Sides and Edges of a table, counter, or bar top
Make sure you purchase extra material to account for spillage over the sides.

This product is far and away better than the competition. It cures hard and clear as glass. I used it to flood coat my copper countertops. It works as advertised. It self levels at 1/8" thick for proper protection. I had to use an off the shelf product to do the backsplash (because I wasted quite a bit of the good stuff in pour off) and although it worked it was far thinner and did not provide the same level of protection as its viscousity self leveled at less than a 1/16" If you want the best this product is far and beyond other products.
I also used the spray lacquer as recommended prior to the epoxy.

I used 3 coats on the countertops and 5 on the bar top.
I had some waviness on the vertical backsplashes and found that the more I used the better.I also contended with a lot of wormholes and imperfections in the bar top with a live edge.
I had also got some advise from the online chat for the questions I had.
Now,I am looking at a glass almost water like effect to all surfaces,
I am thrilled with the outcome and recommend the product.

I was concerned about having the high temp needed to cure the epoxy, as I live in Alaska and heat with wood. I got the heat up to 84 degrees. 5 hours later it is dry to the touch. I tented it about 2 ft. above the counter top with plastic to keep dust off the surface. The heat gun zapped the bubbles in just a few minutes. This is a bathroom vanity with a round copper embossed sink and a bronze bamboo faucet. The epoxy is excellent !

Finsih looks great. Easy to use but make sure you take your time when pouring and read all the directions to be sure you are doing it right. It gets messy so prep area so oveerflow does not get everywhere.Overall, beatuful finsih.
