What To Look For in Bar Top Epoxy Finishes:

Epoxy Countertop kits and Epoxy Table Kits have become a more and more popular option as a bar top finish. There’s numerous reasons why people are choosing it over other finishes, most notably is that epoxy resin provides a longer lasting finish over other options, virtually unlimited design opportunities, an easy to clean surface, it’s lack of toxic chemicals, and it’s high scratch resistance.

Another benefit that keeps costs low is the ability to coat almost any surface. Our Epoxy Table Kits work on wood, concrete, granite, copper, stainless steel, laminate, cork, formica, quartz, bamboo, and ceramic tiles.

Usability For Beginners & Experts

Ease of use is often a major factor when choosing a bar top finish. You want something that’s easy to apply, but also incredibly durable that will stand the test of time in both home and restaurant applications. Here at UltraClear we provide you with everything you could ever need to achieve a professional, commercial grade finish on your first try. From our premium products, tutorial videos, how to articles, and phone/email support, we’re here for you every step of the way.

Shine & Gloss

A high glossy finish is one of the more desirable things about epoxy countertops and bar tops. It lets the wood’s natural beauty stand out and provides your customers, friends, or family with a surface that looks professionally done.

Resistance to Water

It’s no secret that wood and water don’t mix well together. So avoiding wood and rot damage over the years means you must choose a surface coating that will 100% keep out any and all moisture. That’s what makes UltraClear so perfect for bar tops. It’s a 1/8” layer of non-porous resin that provides an impenetrable layer of protection for any moisture that lands on the surface.

Top 5 Advantages Of Bar Top Resin Coatings:

1. Long lasting finish

UltraClear Epoxy Resin for wood and other surfaces gives a beautiful finish that lasts long. You don’t have to worry about the finish cracking or staining in such a way that would require you to re-apply once or twice a year. You simply pour on the resin once and keep it clean for it to last for years and years.

When purchasing just any epoxy resin from a home improvement store, you’re not guaranteed to be getting a product that’s truly commercial grade. The reason professional contractors purchase from UltraClear, is because they know they’re giving their customers a product that will never yellow, fade, or crack even after years of heavy use.

2. Design Opportunities

One of the biggest draws of using a resin top coat is you can add in mica powder colors, embed objects, and do virtually anything you want for a unique design and finish for your bar top. You can even create epoxy river tables if you use our Deep Pour Epoxy before coating it with our Table Top Resin. You can also create colored epoxy resin by using Pigmently Mica Powders found in our Epoxy Colors Section.

3. Easy Cleaning Process

Another big benefit of having bar top epoxy is the ability to clean up almost any mess with just soap and water. If there is a harsher stain or spill, you can use diluted alcohol or bleach to restore your clear resin surface.

4. Zero Toxins

There are a lot of surface finishes that contain VOC’s or Volatile Organic Compounds. UltraClear produces epoxy resin that’s been sourced entirely in the USA and is 100% VOC free, which makes them perfect for restaurants or bars that serve both food and drinks. This also provides you with a finish that’s virtually odorless while pouring the resin, which makes it ideal for in-home applications.

5. Resistance To Scratches

Since UltraClear Bar and Table Top Epoxy cures at a Shore D Hardness rating of 98, it provides a high level of durability and scratch resistance. A 98 Shore D Hardness rating is harder than a construction site hard hat for reference. And even though the finish does not need to be re-applied regularly, it can be re-poured to refresh the finish after many years of abuse if desired.
