KLEER KOTE TABLE TOP EPOXY KIT
1/2 Gallon Resin and 1/2 Gallon Hardner
This product is a 100% solid, two component, clear polymer coating that is
mixed at a 1 to 1 ratio by volume. Each kit contains a bottle of resin and
a bottle of hardener. The product cures to a clear, high build, glass like
finish that resists scratching, yellowing and will not distort with age.
Items coated with it will become permanently preserved and protected for your
enjoyment throughout a lifetime. This product will not exhibit blushing or
sweat out under high humidity conditions
This product is commonly seen on bar tops and table tops in many bars and
The product should be applied in two stages to clean surfaces. The first stage
is referred to as the seal coat. The seal coat is brushed on in a thin layer
and is used to seal any pores in the surface and prevent air bubbles from
forming in the following flood coats. This stage is followed by the flood
coat, which will flow and self level, clean brushes or squeeges can be used
to help spread the epoxy. Flood coats are applied in 1/8" layers at a time,
as many as desired can be applied, however one to three coats is average for
most table or bar coatings.
Recoating can usually be be done within 4 to 8 hours. If re-coated within this
time period no sanding is necessary between layers. If your previous
layer has fully dried, light sanding with 220 or 320 grit sandpaper is
recommended to achieve good bonding surface. After sanding you should wipe down
with a solvent such as denatured alcohol, acetone orlacquer thinner to
remove any impurities from the surface. (do NOT use mineral spirits)
Objects, such as pictures, maps etc. can be imbedded in this product during the
pours. Most photo quality paper does not require any special preparation
however sometimes thin paper objects must first be sealed with a white glue or
similar product to prevent the kleer koat from fully penetrating the paper and
causing it to become transparent.
Imbedding Solid Objects (wood, rocks, shells, etc.)
All porous materials should first have a seal coat of epoxy applied. This will prevent
air bubbles from occurring in subsequent flood coats. Usually the objects can be set
in place before sealing.
For best results the product should be used at temperatures from 70-80 degrees F.
The room which you are working should be clean, dry, dust and insect free.
Settling dust can often cause blemishes on the glassy surface.
Please not that although this product will resist yellowing better than other epoxies
it is NOT 100% UV resistant. Continuous outdoor UV exposure over months or years
will cause the finish to lose its gloss and cause gradual changes in color.
See the coverage charts shown below to calculate the amount you will need for your
area. Remember not to combine seal and flood coat coverage's. Flood coats are
designed to go on approximately 1/8" thick, which is about three times thicker
than that of a seal coat. Example: A 6ft x 4ft bare wood table (24sq ft) would
require 2 Quarts to complete ONE seal coat and about a gallon and a half to complete
ONE flood coat for a total of Two Gallons.
This material leaves professional results when applied correctly so take your time and
make sure to beware of these of the common problems we have seen encountered by
first time users.
1. Always make sure that your mixing container is clean and your measuring device is
accurate, this product REQUIRES that you mix at a 1 to 1 ratio by weight or volume,
any variances from this can cause the epoxy to stay soft and not fully cure.
2. This product requires a THOROUGH mixing, usually between 3-4 minutes of solid mixing
without excessive whipping of the mixture(whipping will put lots of air bubbles into
the epoxy). Amounts greater than one gallon at a time can require upto 6-7 minutes
3. After the two components are poured together and stirring begins the mixture will
turn a cloudy white color, this represents areas in which the epoxy has not fully
combined. You must continue to mix until all signs of cloudiness and tiny white lines
have completely disappeared (usually takes 3-4 minutes of
4. Always scrape the sides of your mixing container and also the stick during those
3-4 minutes. If UNMIXED epoxy remains on the side of the container or the stick it
will cause wet spots on your finished product if that UNMIXED material falls into
your project......Followup: While pouring your epoxy onto the surface NEVER scrape
the container to remove every last drop, because no matter how thorough you mix
there will always be an unmixed drop on the side of the container that will leave a
Recommendation of Materials Needed For Application:
Safety Gloves - Epoxy can be very sticky
Graduated Mixing Cups - An accurate measurement is extremely important to achieve
CLEAN Stir Sticks - Any dirt will end up showing on your product. Mixing is very
important, if you whip while mixing you will end up with air bubbles, long thorough
stirs are required.
Applicators - Rubber squeeges are simple to use and leave no air bubbles. Foam brushes
and nylon bristle brushes are preferred with epoxy, make sure there are no loose hairs.
Hair Drier, Heat Gun or Torch - These are used after the pour is completed and the epoxy
is still liquid. A very smooth stroke across about 6-12 inches above the epoxy surface will
burst remaining air bubbles.
Our kleer kote product can be used in any of the above mentioned applications
to achieve a super hard clear finish with great depth.
