Our experts are here to explain exactly what you need to do in order to ensure that your crystal clear, high-gloss plastic is perfect.


How Do You Apply It?

Our professionals are here to show you explain exactly how to apply the resin adequately. Be sure to follow the tips that follow:

  • Building The Form
    • It is essential to make sure that you create a solid form to eliminate any leaks from occurring. You can also use plywood and sheathing tape to build a form if you do not plan on doing more then one or two pours. It is also important to build your form about 1-2 inches wider and longer than your finished table size so you have enough material to trim your table to size after it is cured and out of the form.

 

  • Calculating How much Epoxy You Need
    • The calculation for determining the amount of epoxy you need is a simple volume calculation. You simply multiply the length of the pour by the depth of the pour by the average width of the pour and then convert to liters.

 

  • Make sure your Slabs are flat
    • Before you pour, you should surface the two pieces of wood to make sure they sit flat in your form. If your slabs are twisted or cupped, you will lose a lot of epoxy underneath the slabs and it will end up costing you more in epoxy than necessary.

 

  • Mixing The Epoxy and Adding Pigment
    • Mixing the epoxy is a very critical part of an epoxy pour. It is often rushed which leads to incorrect mixtures. Be sure to read the proper instructions that are attached to the ecopoxy.
    • After it is time to add pigment, if you are doing a clear pour, you can skip this step. The amount of pigment needed is minimal. Just remember, you can always add more pigment, but you can’t remove pigment once it is mixed.

 

  • Pouring The epoxy
    • The first thing you want to do is make sure that your shop or workspace is within a few degrees of room temperature. Keep it between 66-73 degrees Fahrenheit. Next is to make sure your form is level. This will ensure an even pour and eliminate low spots once you’ve poured your epoxy.
    • Epoxy will sneak under the slab as well as absorb into the wood so it is quite common to require a top up about an hour after the pour. You will notice a lot of bubbles after your pour but those bubbles disappear over the course of a few hours but if you are eager to see how it’s looking, you can lightly pass over the pour with a heat gun or torch to eliminate the bubbles.
