(for Deep Pour please see below)
For most applications, UltraClear Epoxy is applied in two stages, the Seal Coat stage and the Flood Coat stage.
Seal Coat: The seal coat is a small batch of epoxy that is brushed on in a thin layer to seal any pores in the surface and prevent air bubbles from forming in the following flood coat. Our epoxy is used for both the seal coat and the flood coat. It is the same product that is applied to the surface with a paint brush.
Flood Coat: After waiting 4-6 hours from when the seal coat was applied, a flood coat is simply poured on the surface and it self-levels to 1/8" thick.
Side and Edges: When pouring over the Sides and Edges of a table, counter, or bar top, make sure that you purchase extra material to account for spillage over the sides as you will lose 30% of the material coating them.
*Covering embedded objects will require additional epoxy. Make sure you have accounted for this.
**The calculations below are (either) (or) for the seal coat and flood coat. Example: 1 gallon will cover either 16 sq.ft. for a flood coat or 48 sq.ft. for a seal coat, NOT BOTH. These calculations are not intended to give more than a rough estimate. Precise epoxy needs will vary according to many factors, including application type and surface material.
