Epoxy resin is water resistant and is fine to use under a covered patio or deck. It is not waterproof, however, and cannot be immersed in water for long periods of time.
To maintain the condition of your new resin table top, simply wipe the surface with a dry, soft cloth after each use. Most dirt and dust will wash off with warm water. For a more thorough cleaning, use a mild cleaner such as a gentle dish soap. Avoid any products that contain abrasives, acids, or ammonia.
I let the first coat cure overnight but usually up to 48 hours. After that, I sand it and then do the second coat. Let that dry for 24-48 hours and repeat that process with the final coat on top.
We will want to apply at least 3 coats to acquire the full shine and appearance of the resin. I love when the 3D effect is produced with the layering. I prefer 4-6 coats myself but that is something you can decide after you see the first three.
Yes! Any color you can imagine, I can make for you! That is actually a big part of the magic that is created.
Epoxy resin is extremely low maintenance and scratch removal is relatively simple.
- Use warm water to remove dirt and dust.
- Use #800 grit sandpaper and run in small, circular motions until the scratch is gone.
- Follow with #1200 grit sandpaper and rub over the surface of the scratch to smooth and blend.
- Dry with towel.
- Use soft cloth and polishing substance. (Any automobile polishing compound will work!)
I like to tell my customers I need about 3 weeks to complete any table. The tables are frequently completed way ahead of schedule. I ask for 3 weeks due to the size, any color changes or variables, etc.
