Rich, I use Parks super glaze.It is a ultra gloss epoxy.It is crystal clear and is as thick as sixty coats of varnish.I used it on my concrete countertops and it works well.Use a heat gun to pop the fish eyes as the epoxy is curing.You can purchase it at Home Depot.About twenty dollars for 32 oz.Hope this helps.
hey thanks for the info do you use a sealer as well over the epoxy?ro is the epoxy hard enough not to scratch
and do you know is it safe for food contact?
thanks for the help rich
ED THANKS FOR THE REPLY ITS NICE TO KNOW PEOPLE STILL HAVE TIME TO HELP A FELLOW
ARTISAN OUT I'LL CHECK THE INFO YOU SUPPLIED AND GET BACK.
I HAVE BEEN TALKING TO A LOT FOR SUPPLIERS OF MANY PRODUCTS BUT NOT HAVEING A GREAT AMOUNT OF LUCK ITS A HARD NUT TO CRACK!!!!!!!!!!!
This epoxy is 100% solids and you use a propane torch after about fifteen minutes to pull the air bubbles out, you don't actually use the heat directly, I believe it is the carbon monoxide that draws out the bubbles. I use a top coat on top of the epoxy that is semi-gloss or a matte for people who don't prefer the shiny glass smooth finish which BTW is a non porous surface that meets the Drug and Food Administration guidelines. There website is: www.Granicrete.comHave you tried Granicrete International out of Pheonix? They have a great system I have been using for about 10 months now and I have had great results. What type of sealer are you applying on top of the epoxy and how long do you wait before you apply it?
do you put anything on top of your epoxy to make it more scratch resistant?
