How to use TotalBoat TableTop Epoxy:
Mix resin and hardener (1:1 ratio) in a mixing cup.
Pour out epoxy in an S shape onto the surface. When pouring, fill the lowest part first.
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.
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.
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.

Hi, I used this table top epoxy for coating corn hole boards. Not crazy on the outcome. Thin in some areas and thicker in other areas. I want to apply another coat. Do i need to sand the first coat prior to applying another coat. First coat was applied a week ago. If sanding is required what grit sand paper is recommended.
I would sand it to even out the depth. 220 grit is recommended for the second coat. if the epoxy is not self leveling, try pouring a little more.
Should be dry to the touch after 4 to 12 hours depending on environmental conditions. Full cure will take at least 24 hours.
If we apply to an outside table top, will the resin crack in cold weather during the winter? I can't find any temperature ranges in the specs. Thanks.
It will withstand cold temperatures.
What is the open work time you have to spread out the epoxy?
@ 20 to 30 minutes
Can the table top epoxy be used over Total Boat gleam Marine Spar Varnish and Minwax Spar urethane? Also, is this the best epoxy for outdoor use? Must the varnish be sanded before pouring?
You cannot use it over varnish. Varnish can be applied over TableTop to protect it from UV. Typically you should sand the TableTop with 320 grit before applying a varnish.
Want to use on a work bench we'll it crack or dent . Want it to protect the wood from getting beat up . We'll be using various tools on the work bench .
In general, most epoxies would not be suitable for such a purpose. Metal toold could easily scratch or chip it. It would have to be reinforced with fiberglass. A sacrificial piece of Starboard, polyethylene, or PVC lumber would be a better material.
What is the difference between the "Table Top" epoxy and epoxy for boats? I am planning to epoxy the bottom and topsides of my 14 foot wooden sailboat, is there any reason I should not use this?Also, as for coverage, what is the coverage for a gallon of epoxy?
Table top epoxy is less adhesive and not suitable for that application. One gallon of epoxy will cover @ 25' sq ft with a layer 1/16" thick.
Hi, I will be using your epoxy for my new bar top. The bar rails will need to be varnished first. What is your recommendation for a varnish that would be compatible with the epoxy? The epoxy will be slightly above edge of bar rail and don't want it to peel or separate after time. There was a water based stain used also. Thanks, Greg
Generally speaking most varnishes are compatible with epoxy systems. Varnishes are typically used over epoxy as the varnish provides UV stabilization, epoxy doesn't have any UV stabilizers if it is exposed to sun it can degrade over time. Give us a call and talk with one of our techs so we can better understand your project. 1-800-497-0010
Do I need a respirator with this?
A respirator is not required for normal application of this product.
I have a already oil stained workbench. Can I use this product to cover the top?
The stain will need to be totally dry and oil free otherwise the epoxy will fish eye and not lay flat. Clean with denatured alcohol prior to use to remove any oils on the surface.
This was my first time doing an epoxy finish and this product worked great for me. The instructions were easy to follow and I followed them to the t as I wanted to make sure the project was successful on the first try. I'm building an outdoor bar top out of Hickory and it turned out beautiful other than one bug landing on the epoxy while it was still sticky.
Confident with the product and the customer service!!
It was a challenge being that I was very new to the process, but I'm very happy with the outcome. It's been two (2) weeks, so far it has been resilient to scratches etc.....
River bench turned out great. Dye worked well, most bubbles eliminated with torch. Very pleased.

This product is a game changer for my woodworking.
Total Boat Table Top Epoxy is more than a coating. Our business revolves around the use of sustainable wood products from our own forest. Revealing the beauty of wood is often complicated by minor defects, so we use this product to strengthen the wood, plus the epoxy adds beautiful accents due to its crystal clear properties.

Great product, performs better than described
I recently poured a large bar top, things turned out great!!
So easy even a novice could do it!
As a novice, and after watching YouTube video's, the Table Top Epoxy was an easy and great solution to my table. Highly recommend.

Newbie to Resin
I made a counter top for my out door kitchen. I used concrete board and did a dirty pour acrylic paint on top sealing with your resin. It turned out terrific. This is the first time I've worked with resin and it went just like the video. Thanks!
West Jefferson NC
Only product I use
Performance is always good.
Perfect for my Project
I us this as a dip for my projects to make them more durable and last longer.
I loved this
I bought an old Lobstah trap table. I added a mosaic of a lobster to the table top glass. You could lift the glass up so I put the mosaic on the bottom and used the resin to hold the beads in place.
