Installing Epoxy

Our epoxy is made for DIY projects, but if you have a project that is more than what you think you are able to handle you can hire a local handyman or contractor to do the project for you. It is an easy product to work with and the instructions are very thorough.

Here are the steps: 

1) Purchase our UltraClear Epoxy. Make sure to order enough for a seal coat and a flood coat. Also, you will lose about 30% of the epoxy going over the edge to coat the sides unless you have a raised edge all the way around.

2) Apply a seal coat of our epoxy. The seal coat is a small batch of epoxy that is brushed on in a thin layer to seal any pores in the surface and prevent air bubbles from forming in the following flood coat. Our epoxy is used for both your seal coat and your flood coat. You do not need a different product. Both seal and flood coats are always a 50/50 mixture. For the seal coat, mix up a small batch (16 oz. of Resin + 16 oz. of Hardener) and use a very good paint brush (around $10 at the home improvement store) to apply to surface. You will paint it on just as you paint on a wall. This stage is followed by the flood coat , which will flow and self level to 1/8". 

3) Four to six hours after you paint the seal coat, you will want to pour your flood coat. 

4) Pop any air bubbles in the flood coat with a plumbers torch or heat gun. This will only take about few minutes to do as it is a very easy and fast process as you are just sweeping over the area with heat until you cover the entire surface

5) Let it cure for 72 hours. That's it. You will receive the complete instructions with your order and it will also cover this information.
