How Food Safe Are Epoxy Resin Surfaces?
One of the most common questions we get asked is this; is your epoxy food safe? While the short answer is yes, in this blog we will dive into the details that make up epoxy resin chemistry and give you all the information you'll need to never worry about serving food over an epoxy coated surface again.
UltraClear Epoxy is Completely VOC Free. Always.
One of our biggest selling points is that our epoxy is 100% VOC free, virtually odorless, and perfect for use in odor-sensitive areas such as wineries, restaurants, kitchens, or confined spaces.
One of the great things about the epoxy being entirely free of VOC's is that it does in fact produce little to no odors. Some epoxy products include resin instructions that recommend wearing personal protective equipment such as respirators or masks when working with the epoxy. Not only is that uncomfortable to wear while trying to accurately measure, mix, and pour epoxy, but it can also ruin the experience for most people.
With UltraClear there's no need to wear respirators, masks, or anything like that when working with our epoxy. You can fully focus on the project at hand and actually enjoy the process instead of dreading it.
Working with epoxy can be a fun and pleasant experience, which is why so many people find themselves actively looking for an epoxy project to do as it becomes their new favorite resin hobby.
Professional Grade and Professional Quality
Our Bar & Table Top Epoxy is used day in and day out by professional contractors that trust our brand to get the job done right for their customers. When you’re installing epoxy every day in businesses and restaurants around the country, you need a brand you know if going to perform 100% correctly every single time. That’s why we don’t mess around when it comes to our quality control process.
Starting with sourcing raw materials and chemicals right here in the USA, every step our epoxy goes through before it hits your doorstep is carefully guarded by the highest quality guidelines and standards to ensure you are getting the absolute best product we can provide. We do not cut corners, accept bad shipments, or opt for any “cheaper” alternatives when it comes to sourcing our products. We demand the best because that’s what we promise our customers and that's what they have come to expect. And we deliver on that promise every single time.
Due to this and the fact that our epoxy is 100% VOC free, there’s no need to worry about occasional contact with food and our epoxy. Restaurants use our epoxy every day across the US and don’t worry about spilled food accidentally touching our epoxy! It’s simply an inert plastic that is virtually harmless for food contact.
Additional Food Safe Options For Epoxy Surfaces
If you are wanting that extra security of a completely food safe product for projects like charcuterie boards or other serving trays, we also have a solution for you! You can find Osmo TopOil in our supplies section. It’s a completely natural, food safe oil and wax combination based finish that can go over epoxy and wood easily. It’s made of natural plant oils and waxes and gives a beautiful, natural looking finish. And best of all, it’s completely safe for food contact!
While the epoxy itself is also safe, this may be the added insurance to give some of your projects or particular customers even more peace of mind when using epoxy projects for food serving purposes.
