The product should be applied in two stages. The first stage is referred to as the seal coat. The seal coat is brushed on in a thin layer and is used to seal any pores in the surface and prevent air bubbles from forming in the following flood coats. This stage is followed by the flood coat, which will flow and self level, clean brushes or squeegees can be used to help spread the epoxy. Flood coats are applied in 1/8 layers at a time, as many as desired can be applied, however one to three coats is average for most table or bar coatings.
Re coating can usually be be done within 4 to 8 hours. If re-coated within this time period no sanding is necessary between layers. If your previous layer has fully dried, very light sanding with 220 grit sandpaper is recommended to achieve a good bonding surface. After sanding you should wipe down with a solvent such as denatured alcohol or acetone to remove any impurities from the surface. (do not use mineral spirits).Objects, such as pictures, maps etc. Can be embedded in this product during the pours. Most photo quality paper does not require any special preparation however sometimes thin paper objects must first be sealed with a white glue or similar product to prevent the clear coat from fully penetrating the paper and causing it to become transparent. Embedding solid objects wood, rocks, shells, etc. All porous materials should first have a seal coat of epoxy applied. This will prevent air bubbles from occurring in subsequent flood coats. Usually the objects can be set in place before sealing. For best results the product must be used at temperatures from 70-80 degrees f. The room which you are working should be clean, dry, dust and insect free. Settling dust can often cause blemishes on the glassy surface. Please not that although this product will resist yellowing better than other epoxies it is not 100% uv resistant. Continuous outdoor uv exposure over months or years will cause the finish to lose its gloss, cause gradual changes in color and possibly warp. Liquids should be stored in a cool, dry, dark environment. Product will last for at least 6 months and many times will last longer, but small testing should be done if in doubt.
The hardener may get more amber in color as it gets older, but this does not affect the use of the product. This item is made of epoxy resin and clear coat epoxy.
