Info & Guides
Simple Instructions for Using TotalBoat TableTop Epoxy

Taping the Edges: To contain the liquid epoxy, apply plastic packing tape around the edges of the table. Plastic packing tape is best because it releases easily & cleanly after the epoxy is cured.

Mixing: For best results, use the "2-cup mixing method": Add resin and hardener to the first mixing cup at a 1 to 1 ratio by volume. Stir for 3-5 minutes, then transfer the mixture to a second mixing cup and continue stirring until blended thoroughly. Be sure to use clean tools for mixing and application.

Temperature & Application: Warm conditions are critical for success. For best results, only apply in temperatures between 70-80°F. First, apply a thin seal coat to the surface. After the seal coat has set, apply additional flood coats, up to 1/8" thick. Wait 4-8 hours between each flood coat.

Leveling Tips: Flood coats will self-level but epoxy spreaders and brushes can be used to spread it over the surface.

Recoating: Additional coats may be applied after 4 to 8 hours without sanding or additional prep work. However, if the previous coat cures fully, scuff sand with 220-320 grit sandpaper before applying another coat. After sanding, wipe down with acetone or denatured alcohol to remove sanding dust and let dry before applying an additional coat. Sanding between coats will not adversely affect the cosmetics of the final product—the hazy surface will become clear when the next flood coat is applied.

IMPORTANT!

  • Multiple, thin pours are recommended, rather than one thick flood coat, because a thick coat can trap air bubbles beneath the surface, and generate excessive heat, which will distort the surface, resulting in an improper cure.
  • Do not place items hotter than 125°F on the cured surface, or it will discolor and become distorted.

Should I Use TotalBoat TableTop Epoxy or TotalBoat ThickSet Epoxy?

Both of these professional quality epoxies give you beautiful results for crystal-clear coating, casting, encapsulating or embedding 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 TableTop Epoxy Advantages

  • Faster cure time for coating and shallow-depth embedding projects
  • Simpler 1:1 mix ratio (ThickSet is 3:1)

The maximum single-layer depth for TotalBoat TableTop Epoxy is 1/8"-1/4".

TotalBoat ThickSet Epoxy Advantages

  • Requires fewer pours to achieve final thickness of 1/2" and more
  • Reduces possibility of banding (ability to see individual layers)
  • Gives you longer working time at room temperature

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.

How to use TotalBoat TableTop Epoxy:

  • Spread with foam brush or plastic epoxy spreader.
  • Let sit for 5 minutes.
  • Move a propane torch or heat tool 6 inches above the surface. Going back and forth across the surface will eliminate air bubbles. Do not leave the torch on one area or it will burn & distort the epoxy
  • Allow epoxy to cure.

Easy to work with as a novice
By Carson from Wisconsin

Verified Purchase

I am somewhat of a novice to epoxy resin but this was easy to work with. I've used two other brands prior and thought this one was the easiest to mix and didn't create as many bubbles as the others. My one complaint is that the containers don't give a weight measurement. I measured my epoxy by weight so had to do a lot of extra steps to get the right amounts which would have not been necessary if they included starting weights on the package.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Not sure about epoxy in general...
By Rookie from Plain, WA

Verified Purchase

Too many "micro-bubbles" that didn't surface. They stayed suspended in the epoxy. Maybe it's my lack of experience in this type of project?
