TotalBoat ThickSet Clear Casting Epoxy is ideal for thick casting, embedding & molding projects. Water-clear, 2-part formula makes DIY projects easy—just measure, mix and pour! Simple 3 parts resin to 1 part hardener mix ratio creates a deep, glass-like finish on bars, counters and tables, highlighting the surface itself or the creative objects you've embedded, such as shells, bottle caps & photos.
ThickSet lets you pour deeper single layers than traditional tabletop epoxy. For large pours (tables or slabs), pour single layers 1/2 in. to 1 in. deep. Pour small molds in single layers up to 2 in. deep depending on mass & temperature conditions. Long working time lets you experiment & have fun! Cured epoxy is BPA-free, safer for food contact.
Choose Kit size: 1.3 QT, 1.3 GAL, 4 GAL or 8 GAL. Kits include 2 mixing cups, 2 stir sticks & 1 spreader.

Pour 3 parts resin and 1 part hardener by volume into a clean mixing cup (DO NOT mix more than 1 total gallon of material at a time).
Stir for 2-3 minutes to mix thoroughly. Pour into a clean mixing cup and stir for another 2-3 minutes.
Pour slowly, to minimize air bubbles. Use the spreader to help level out the layer. The maximum single-pour depth is 1" for large pours, and 2" for casting in small molds**.
Step pouring additional layers: Wait until the previous layer is cool, but still soft enough to indent with a fingernail, and pour the next layer of ThickSet directly on top.
Both of these epoxies give you beautiful results for crystal-clear coating, casting, embedding or encapsulating projects. However, TotalBoat TableTop Epoxy is more of a 'coating' epoxy, and TotalBoat ThickSet epoxy, is more of a 'casting' epoxy designed for thicker pours.
TotalBoat ThickSet Epoxy Advantages
Designed for thick casting, ThickSet allows you to do deeper single-layer pours than you can do with TotalBoat TableTop Epoxy. For example, you can pour a single layer of TotalBoat ThickSet 1/2"-1" deep when pouring into large areas or molds, and up to 2" deep when pouring into small molds.
TotalBoat TableTop Epoxy Advantages
The maximum single-layer depth for TotalBoat TableTop Epoxy is 1/8"-1/4".
For your protection, wear safety glasses, long sleeves, and disposable gloves to prevent contact with skin and eyes while mixing, pouring, and working with TotalBoat ThickSet. It's also very important that your work area is well ventilated.
