Pour out epoxy in an S shape onto the surface
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.
Allow epoxy to cure
Instructions and Tips
Mixing: Mix resin and hardener at a 1 to 1 ratio by volume. Mix for up to 5 minutes or until thoroughly blended. Be sure to use clean tools for mixing and application.
Temperature & Application: For best results, use at temps between 70° and 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.
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 to 320 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.

What is the total working time, after thorough mixing?
Pot time about 10 min @ 75 degrees Working time 20 - 25 min the warmerthe temp the less working time*Sent:* Friday, May 18, 2018 10:46 AM*Subject:* Can you help a fellow shopper?
I'd say about 10 mins.But that is based on only one use. I would not plan on more than 10 mins.
Depends on temperature, but I would guess it's over 1/2 hour.
I did not have very good success with this product. However I am positive that was my fault. All I can say is make sure your mix is correct and don't go to thick right off. Mine never hardened all the way and had to sand it all off. I refinished with a product called waterlox which is an amazing product.
The ambient temperature is the biggest factor concerning working time. If it is 95 degrees, you have about 10 minutes. If it is 60, you have an hour. You can gain more working time by refrigerating the mixture and by keeping the substrate cool. Also, the larger the batch, the quicker it will start to set, so pore it out as soon as possible to avoid premature setting. If you are poring a large area you will need to make small batches and keep them coming. You will need an assistant. Do not reuse the same mixing tools and mixing container because that will shorten the working time.Bruce
Working time is 15-20 minutes depending on temperature, which is more than enough time. Once epoxy is poured, the only thing that remains is to get out any bubbles with a heat gun or torch.Dave Lees
This is a a factor of ambient temperature, temperature of the product, and the volume of epoxy that was mixed. Under most circumstances you should have 30 minutes of working time @ 77 deg. F if you do not keep it sitting in a mixing cup, and you have applied it to a substrate. If you just leave it in a mixing pot, you may only have 10-15 minutes or less (from my experience).

I've used this product on a birch wood counter top and just have one question. What have I done incorrectly to cause sticky spots on the surface??
Most likely you didn't mix thoroughly enough. My recommendation is wipe asmuch of it off as possible, clean up the area with acetone, sand and tryanother pour. Epoxy is one of those things that you really cannot skimp onmixing with.
If they are just a few spots, then most likely incomplete mixing of the two components. They do mix poorly and the recommended mixing of (I think ) 3 minutes is absolutely required.
Would say two possible reasons:1.. did you mix it fully?2. Was there any resin spots in the birch?Sent from my iPad. Tom swayne
Hi Chuck, the main cause of sticky spots is not stirring thoroughly enough. Generally what we notice is the bottom corners of the mixing pail does not get stirred enough, and what we have been recommending is to mix in one mixing pot, then pour into a second mixing pot and stir for another 3-4 minutes. This makes it so that any material that was on the bottom of the first pot is now mixed in evenly.

I have a table that is 96" x 40". Will one gallon be enough?
Coverage is typically 12.8 sq ft for one gallon at 1/8" thick. You would need about 2 gallons.

Is there a shelf life for the TableTop Epoxy?I have leftovers from a year ago, can that still be used or buy new sealed product?
Yes, it should still be good.

Totalboat Tabletop Epoxy: I've tried unsuccessfully to do same thing your video did with placing a chart on a table top with the Totalboat Tabletop epoxy resin over it. Did you secure the chart to the table with a glue or just lay it flat and pour the resin on top of your chart? My chart is waterproof and glue did hold it down very well. While waiting on glue to dry chart wrinkled in a few spots before I even attempted to pour the resin on top. Any suggests to keep chart completely flat and wrinkle free?
First glue the chart down to the surface, be sure it is clean and the glue you use will secure it to the table. Then apply the Table Top Epoxy.

I want to use it on a table that converts to a berth and it may flex a bit, will it flex with the table or will it crack ?
It will flex a little but not much before it cracks.

Can tints be added to this? If so what type would you recommend? Thanks.
You could add a little Epoxy color agent to it.
JD Tech Team
How thick can you pour it, and it still dry? I am looking for something that would be anywhere from 3/8 to 1/2 inch thick and dry clear.
We recommend to do multiple 1/8" pours until you get to the desired thickness. Once a coat dries, you can recoat.

How well does this product (if mixed and applied properly) stand up to UV light and weather? I am thinking of coating various dried gourds (birdhouses and decoration gourds) to be placed outdoors in N. Central Missouri. Thanks...
These epoxies do not have UV inhibitors in them and will degrade in direct sunlight. A better choice would be a 2 part polyurethane varnish like out Totalboat Envy.

Can I use a lacquer for a sealer under epoxy
Yes, that will work.
Easy...but think ahead before starting
I used it to cover a 3' x 6' captain's table that had seen many years of wear. Besides the instructions that come with the epoxy, here are some tips:1. Put a blue tarp under the table to catch the dripping epoxy. Blue tarp easy to clean after epoxy dries. Do not use newspapers to catch drips or you will have an unmanageable mess.2. Be prepared to put down at least two coats, maybe 3. I embedded sections of old nav. charts on table top and needed 3 layers.(1st layer was to embed charts on table top).3. Using plenty of epoxy ensures table sides are smoothly covered. Too little on top and you will have rippled edges on the sides.4. Bubbles easily removed with heat gun. Gun is a lot safer than a propane torch.5. After pour finished, sight from side with aid of a light and you can see any last minute contaminants (ie hairs, bristles or particles) that are marring the surface. They are easily removed with a tweezer and show no marks thereafter.When finished and epoxy dried, the project looked great. I couldn't have been more pleased
I would buy this again
used on a birch wood counter top to highlight the wood grain without and distortion
Great product. Worked as stated and more
Video was very helpful
Smoke & Mirrors
Will be buying again
Easy to mix as it is 1-1 ratio, directions are clear, dries clear, will be buying again

You have to watch for bubbles if the surface has defects. We3 used it to seal a table top that had split. It took several applications to get the surface right.
Great for Art Works
I use the product as a final glaze to artworks consisting of wood cutouts.

I would use again.
It is a must to have room temp. at 75 to 80 degrees at all times. Product is to thick at lower temp. ,difficult to spread and does not self level well. First attempt for me had poor results but after increasing room temp. to 80 degrees and maintaining for several days a much better result was obtained. Found better stirring method on another site and bought those products. Perhaps Jamestown Dist. could offer these as well. Products were an auger for drill and stir stick with holes in it so fewer air bubbles were created.
Great table top
This is a great product. I plan on using it in the future for other projects. My only issue was the temperature needed to apply the epoxy. I usually do my woodworking projects during the colder months, but the epoxy needs the heat to flow. My first table top was done in a room around 78 degrees (using a space heater) and was perfect. The second table top was done in a room around 70 degrees and it did not flow very well. As I said above, this is a great product, I would recommend the temperature be between 80-90 degrees and it would flow like water instead of 70 degrees it flowing like a typical glue.
This stuff worked great.
Mixed and poured well. Could use a bigger bucket to mix with though
