    "PAP is polyaspartic.  Very hardy stuff.  Jim has you in a good direction.  You can get your wetting out of the surface you need for the color pop but then degloss it as he says.  Just be careful of epoxies outdoors exposed to sun…"

    "I've dulled out many tops (epoxy and pap) with 0000 steal wool. I've also used 500 grit sand paper. I use a spray bottle, mist the surface and go to town by hand. I would try a sample or 2 before doing the top."

    Exterior countertop sealer recommendations?

    I have a customer that is wanting an exterior kitchen. He wants to do concrete countertops with an integrated sink. Does anyone have any recommendations on a sealer that pops the color, doesn't look like plastic, and can hold up to the weather up here in the NW. The kitchen will be exposed to all kinds of weather because there isn't a roof over it.See More
