Like our epoxy floors, the prep of your existing countertops is the most important part of installing your new epoxy countertops.
We start by either sanding or grinding the countertop, to remove any grease, oils, stains and open the pores of the material so the epoxy can bond well with it.
We then move onto repairing any defects in your countertop and prime it. The primer coat will seal the countertop, to prevent it from bubbling and help with adhesion.
Once the primer coat is fully cured, on day two we move onto applying the color coat.
Once the colors are fully cured, on day three we apply a protective, UV stable clear sealer. The sealer is what seals all pores, protects the countertop from scratching and give it the high-gloss finish.
Epoxy countertops cure to a hard and thick finish. They are impact resistant, heat resistant, chemical resistant (to a certain extent), and UV resistant. They are hard to scratch or chip. And even if you manage to somehow damage your epoxy countertop, you don't need to replace it, just sand and polish and it will be like new again.
Like epoxy floors, epoxy countertops are extremely easy to clean and care for. All you require is damp cloth, and a mild detergent to power away stuck-on food.
Epoxy countertops are nontoxic once the epoxy fully cures and resist bacteria, germs, molds, and mildews. With their smooth, non-porous surface, nothing can penetrate the countertop and contaminate it. To remove surface microbes, wipe the epoxy countertop down with a food safe cleaner.
Epoxy countertops rarely become damaged, allowing you to have a virtually maintenance-free countertop. When properly looked after, epoxy countertops can provide you with many years of beautiful, glossy countertops.
Epoxy countertops are heat resistant, but they are not steam proof. This is why hot pans, slow cookers, pressure cookers, countertop ovens, and fryers, should not be placed directly onto the epoxy countertops.
For those who want the look of natural stone, without the hassle of maintaining it, epoxy countertops are the answer. When pigments are added to the epoxy, it can be manufactured to replicate natural stones at a fraction of the price.
