Product Instructions

Step 1. Calculate Surface Area and Check Level

Using a tape measure, measure the square feet of your surface (Length x Width) and then input this information into the Epoxy Resin Coverage Calculator. If you plan to do a dirty pour or add colorant, you may want to increase the required epoxy resin by 5-25%. After calculating the amount of epoxy resin that your project will require, make sure that your surface is completely level and adjust as needed. A level surface is very important.

Step 2. Prepare for Mixing

Gather your epoxy resin, mixing supplies, and personal protective equipment. We recommend at the very least using nitrile gloves, safety glasses, clothing to protect from spills. Be sure to use epoxy resin in a well-ventilated room or use an air-purifying respirator.

Step 3. Cover Cabinets and Floors with Plastic

Before applying epoxy resin to the surface utilize plastic sheeting to cover any surfaces that epoxy resin could get on. We recommend applying tape to the backsplash/wall, plastic on the floor, as well as plastic covering all cabinets. Be mindful of where you walk to ensure you do not track epoxy resin outside of your work area.

Step 4. Pour Epoxy Resin into a Mixing Container

Measure your desired amount of epoxy resin at a 1:1 ratio by volume into a graduated mixing cup. Pour the resin first, allow it a moment to settle, and then follow up with an equal amount of hardener.

Step 5. Mix Thoroughly for Four Minutes

Mix the two parts together for a total of four minutes. Be sure to scrape the bottom and sides of the container while mixing so that there is no un-mixed epoxy resin. Aggressive mixing can introduce excessive air, stir slowly but thoroughly. Continue to stir until the epoxy resin no longer has ribbons and returns to clear.

Step 6. Apply to Surface

Apply the epoxy resin to your surface immediately after mixing. You can do this by using your gloved hand, a foam roller, a brush, a trowel, and many other tools. Make sure that epoxy resin completely covers the surface. Using your gloved hand or spreading utensil, apply epoxy resin to the sides of the surface (if necessary).

 

If you do not apply enough epoxy resin it may pull away from the edge. If you apply too much epoxy resin it can drip off or run to one end depending on the surface.

Step 7. Use a Torch or Heat Gun to Remove Trapped Air

Quickly sweep a propane torch or heat gun across the surface being sure to keep the flame 6-8 inches away from the surface. Do not overheat the epoxy resin or hold the heat in one spot for too long. We recommend heating the epoxy resin only during the working time, do not apply heat once the working time has passed. After eliminating bubbles allow the epoxy resin time to cure in the appropriate environment (listed in Technical Data below).

 

It is very important that the epoxy resin has a consistent curing temperature throughout the entire curing process. Keep in mind that curing the epoxy resin in a warmer environment will yield a more durable surface. We recommend a maximum of 120° F and a minimum of 75° F.

 

Ensure that you are working in a well-ventilated room or using an air-purifying respirator.

 

Tip: Hate those pesky drips? Wait a couple of hours after applying the epoxy resin and return with a spreader or knife and push the tool up against the bottom of the surface while simultaneously pulling the tool from side to side at a slight angle. The epoxy resin will have thickened up enough where it will no longer drip and you will not need to sand the drips off the following day.

Step 8. Apply Additional Layers

We recommend applying at least two layers of epoxy resin for added surface protection. There are two ways of adding additional layers of epoxy resin to the existing layer.

 

1. Apply the next layer while the last layer is still tacky to the touch. Allow the first layer to dry for 3-6 hours and lightly touch it with a gloved hand. If the epoxy resin coating feels tacky without pulling up like taffy, you can apply an additional layer at this time. Applying an additional layer while the previous layer is still tacky gives you a chemical bond.

 

2. Apply the next layer after the last layer has dried for 24 hours. Lightly sand the last layer with 220 grit sandpaper, remove any debris from sanding, and apply an additional layer starting with Step 1. Applying an additional layer after sanding will give you a mechanical bond.

 

Both methods are excellent options for applying additional layers. The chemical bond will allow you to complete your project faster, while the mechanical bond may allow you to remove any surface imperfections before the final coat.
