Uses For Epoxy Table Top Resin

September 19, 2016

Today we will discuss all the uses of Epoxy.com Product #214 Table Top Resin.

So many of you are now scratching your head, trying to figure out how I can devote an entire article to what to use our epoxy table top resin for.

Characteristics

Product #214 Water Clear Epoxy Casting – Tabletop Resin – Bar Top Resin is an all-purpose, low viscosity epoxy resin system for coating wood and concrete counter tops, tabletops, bar tops and similar applications. It has excellent clarity and color retention. Our clear casting resin and tabletop resin / bar top Epoxy has zero (0) VOC making it essentially odorless and can therefore be used in occupied areas. It de-bubbles and flattens a lot easier than similar materials.

Casting Resin

Our epoxy table top resin is frequently used as “casting resin”. It is poured into forms typically made out of silicone. The material is allowed to harden and then forms removed. This can be for very small parts or it can be used for very large parts.

Table Top Resin as Flooring

Product #214 Epoxy Table Top Resin can be used when a super flat floor is required. It is possible to get a floor as flat as water. This is important under certain types of machinery such as MRI machines and equipment used to product high precision parts for use in items like space satellites.

Other Uses

Product #214 Epoxy Table Top Resin can also be used to make tiles. After they cure they can be installed with conventional methods or with Product #225 Epoxy Tile Grout.

The epoxy table top resin that we sell has also been used for dance floors, stages, theme parks and homes to produce a floor to simulate water. Often times this is done with rocks and other objects in the epoxy to give the appearance of steam, a river, a lake, or the ocean. At the same time it allows a super flat finish that allows dancing, and all the things normally associated with a flat floor.

 

Advantages of Clear Table Top Resin #214

  • Low odor for use in occupied areas
  • Low viscosity – good wetting properties
  • Meets USDA standards for use in food handling applications
  • Glossy finish
  • Stain resistant
  • Zero (0) VOC – No VOC means it meets the toughest low VOC standards.

Why Use Epoxy.com Products in “Green” Buildings?

August 20, 2012

110614_2044_EpoxyChipFl10.pngEpoxy.com’s 100% solid products (which are most of our product line) are included in many “Green” buildings. The logic for that is this:

1. Epoxy.com 100% solid products have  no VOCs. So you are reducing the carbon emissions.

2. Typical Epoxy.com 100% solid systems have done their job for decades, and there is no reason to believe they will not last for decades more. I personally have jobs that I installed with them that go back as much as a third of a century, that are not even starting to show signs that they will need replacement. That is the ultimate in reuse.

3. There is no need to recycle a product that can be reused for decades, but you can use recycled materials like glass aggregate in the epoxy matrix.

Epoxy.com encourages our customers to order material as they need it and to use all their materials before their expiration. That is why we do not require large stocking orders from new dealers, like most other companies. We want our customers to use up material they buy from us and not have any for it run out of shelf life. However, if Epoxy.com products do run out of shelf life, they are typically mixed and cured before disposal as is consitered in under most if not all local regulations as inert as common trash.

A customer Asks: “I am looking to do my bar top.  Can I stain it with polyurethane before I install Epoxy.com Product #214  100% Solids Epoxy Casting Tabletop and Bar Top Resin?”

Answer: It is always better to bond the Epoxy.com Product #214100% Solids Epoxy Casting Tabletop and Bar Top Resin directly to the substrate so you will get the strongest possible bond.  However, if you must stain you should use a stain that does not waterproof the substrate.  Of course you should always do a mockup if you plan to use any kind of stain.  Some people like to use Epoxy.com Product #1  a two component, zero (0) VOC, 100% solids epoxy Hi-Build epoxy coating as a pigmented background. That way you have the strength of Epoxy, while getting a background color.
