Giani Ultra Epoxy Resin Do's and Don'ts

The Do's and Don'ts of Giani Ultra Epoxy Resin

The Do’s:


Do… make sure you have everything you need before starting. Have a list and make sure it’s all checked off.



Do… make sure you properly prepare your surface before pouring your Giani Ultra Epoxy Resin onto your primed countertop.

Do this by de-glossing your countertop surface, remove any caulk, patch any deep nicks or seams with wood filler.



Do… mask everything off – Epoxy can be a messy job! If you don't want Epoxy on it, cover it!


    Mask:
        • the floor
        • under the cabinets
        • where you will be mixing the Epoxy
        • your back splash
    This will make cleaning up a breeze!

Do… pour your activator into your resin can properly and precisely and stir for the amount of time indicated on your instructions.



Do… bring room temperature to 72-75 degrees, 2-3 days before you pour your Epoxy. Maintain the temperature for another 24 hours to allow the countertop to cure properly.



Do… be aware of when your countertop will cure.

The Don'ts:

Don’t… rush the mixing process. This is the most vital step in ensuring your product cures properly. If improperly mixed, it can result in soft spots or tacky areas that will not cure.



Don’t… stop and start… once you start, you need to finish.

Don’t… leave excessive product sitting in your mixing container. By doing so, the excessive amount of product left in the container will flash, bubble, heat up, cure at an extremely fast rate and potentially crack. Once the product is properly mixed, pour it out on your surface immediately. (Within 30-40 minutes).

Don’t… over work your surface – Once you pour the product out you want to spread the product across in smooth even strokes. Take your time in ensuring the product is level across your entire piece.

All in all, it's not difficult to work with Ultra Epoxy Resin. And the end result is absolutely beautiful! The shine is amazing and the durability is hard to beat!
