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