COUNTERTOPS

Absolutely not! Our meticulously crafted products are tailor-made for homeowners aiming to save on kitchen and bathroom upgrades. With our revolutionary epoxy solutions, you can effortlessly transform your outdated countertops or build stunning new ones from scratch.

We provide step-by-step guidance on our Stone Coat Countertops YouTube channel, empowering you every step of the way. YOU GOT THIS!

Start your countertop project off right by using our Project Builder for Building New Countertops or Updating Old Countertops.

The amount of epoxy needed depends on your desired technique. In most cases, 955ml (32.3 US fl.oz) of mixed epoxy per square metre will do the trick. However, if you’re going for a more intricate Exotic Pour or Hand Melded Marble technique, we recommend using 1.91 litres (64.6 US fl.oz) per square metre. And if you’re applying a clear coat of epoxy as the final step, an additional 955ml per square metre should be sufficient.

Stone Coat Countertop Epoxy and Epoxy Art Coat are specially designed to revitalise a variety of surfaces, including Porcelain and Ceramic Tile, Laminate (Formica), Granite, Marble, Quartz, Cultured Marble, and Solid Surface like Corian. Our epoxy formulations deliver exceptional results when you properly abrade your countertops and apply our Bonding Primer & Sealer to ensure a strong bond with existing countertop surfaces.

  • For best results, measure our Countertop Epoxy and Epoxy Art Coat at a 1:1 ratio by volume. Use our Mixing Cups for accurate mixing.
  • Start by pouring an equal amount of Resin (Part A) and Hardener (Part B) into the bucket, adding Part B first, followed by Part A.
  • Mix both components thoroughly using a Paint Mixer attached to a drill for about 2 minutes. Remember to pause halfway through the mixing process to scrape the sides and bottom of the bucket. If you are mixing in smaller batches you can use our Mixing Sticks. We advise doubling the mixing time to approximately 4 minutes.
  • For the longest working time, move quickly to apply the mixed epoxy to the countertop.

For optimal results and safety, we recommend mixing only 1 gallon of our countertop epoxy products at a time. This translates to a ½ gallon mix of Part A (resin) and ½ gallon of Part B (hardener). Mixing larger quantities can lead to an exothermic reaction, causing:

  • Excessive Heat: This can damage the epoxy and surrounding surfaces.
  • Rapid Curing: The epoxy will harden too quickly, limiting your working time.
  • Toxic VOC Release: These fumes can pose health risks.

Stone Coat Countertop Epoxy and Epoxy Art Coat are designed to work seamlessly with Colourants including Metallic Mica Pigment Powder, Glitter Additives, Spray Paint and Liquid Epoxy Dye. These give you the freedom to create your dream countertops. With the ability to incorporate a spectrum of solids, metallics, glitters, and rich epoxy pastes–the possibilities are endless! We encourage you to unleash your creativity and explore different combinations of our colourants to achieve one-of-a-kind patterns and designs.

Both Stone Coat Countertop Epoxy and Epoxy Art Coat offer an impressively long working time of roughly 50 minutes in a working environment of 21 degrees Celcius and 60 percent relative humidity. While higher temperatures and humidity may slightly reduce the working time, we have ensured that even first-time epoxy users can confidently work with our products. After mixing you have roughly 50 minutes of working time to pour your colour coat, wait 18-24 hours to then pour your final clear coat of Countertop Epoxy or Epoxy Art Coat or instead apply Ultimate Top Coat for added durability and scratch resistance.

For the best results when using Stone Coat Countertop Epoxy and Epoxy Art Coat, it’s recommended to create in an environment with a temperature between 20 and 24 degrees Fahrenheit and a relative humidity of 55 to 65 percent. During the initial three days, it’s crucial to ensure that the epoxy project cures in a room above 65 degrees to prevent a softer cure.

Below are three effective methods to eliminate bubbles when mixing and applying epoxy:

Method #1 (preferred): Use a propane torch to sweep the surface of the project, holding the torch head 1-3 inches away. Opt for a torch head with holes at the base, ensuring it stays lit even when flipped upside down. Our recommendation is the Bernzomatic TS-4000.

Method #2: The next best option is a heat gun. Follow the same process, but hold the heat gun a bit further away to prevent the blowing air from affecting the finish, unless you prefer the altered results.

Method #3: In third place, we have the hair dryer. Although it is the least efficient and effective, it can still take care of those micro bubbles. Simply sweep the surface in the same manner, but go slower on a low setting.

We only use a tape dam when we’re working with more than 955ml of epoxy per square metre of countertop. For finishes like Exotic Pour, Hand Melded Marble, or our Rolling Stone method, we recommend using 1.91 litres of epoxy. This extra epoxy helps allow for those beautiful melding and marbling effects to smoothly flow over the edges.

Apply a masking tape dam to keep everything in place until the epoxy starts to thicken and gel up. After 1.25-2 hours after mixing, pouring, and working with your epoxy you can check if it’s ready by gently touching and lifting a gloved finger from the corner of the project. Check how long the epoxy sticks to your finger as well as its consistency. Ideally, you want it to stick to your finger as you lift it by an inch or so. This will allow your countertop edges to retain a defined pattern as the epoxy flows over. If you notice any dry areas on the edges, just wet them with epoxy using your gloved finger as the epoxy flows. This will help ensure smooth and even coverage.

There is no need for a tape dam on a countertop finish requiring only 955ml of epoxy per square metre such as Soapstone, Baltic Brown Granite or Carrara Marble. This also applies for the application of an epoxy clear coat using Countertop Epoxy or Epoxy Art Coat, and many more.

Check out the vast library of tutorials on our Stone Coat Countertops YouTube channel to find out how many ml of epoxy per square metre we mix to achieve a wide variety of creative finishes.

Yes! However, this can be a more advanced technique to complete. Timing is everything and depending on the style of epoxy countertop finish desired it can be difficult to pour the same look on both a horizontal and vertical surface.

Method #1 (preferred): The easiest and best looking method would be to first remove the backsplash by cutting it off the countertop and filling the small gap at the wall and back of the countertop with Bondo. Then, cut a new backsplash out of MDF and pour your epoxy onto it flat at the same time you pour your countertops. When cured, install your new backsplash vertically with 100% silicone.

Method #2: Wait for the epoxy to thicken a little in the bucket then do your best to vertically apply effects similar to those you created on the countertop surface.

For white and light-coloured epoxy countertops, shower walls, and tabletops, we recommend using Epoxy Art Coat. It offers the highest level of UltraViolet resistance in the industry. By incorporating as many UV resistant and Hindered Amine Light Stabilisers (HALS) additives as possible, we ensure that your white and light-coloured epoxy countertops will maintain their colour fastness for years to come. Just ensure to follow our best practices during the creation process.

No, but adding a clear coat has some benefits. Adding a clear epoxy layer not only enhances the depth and durability of your epoxy countertop design but also provides extra protection to the thinnest part of your project–the edges. If you prefer not to use Ultimate Top Coat as the final layer for maximum durability, just make sure to apply between 318ml and 955ml (1-3 US fl.oz) of Stone Coat Countertop Epoxy or Epoxy Art Coat per square metre of countertop to restore a “safe for food contact” status. Always make sure to cover your initial coloured epoxy layer with either a clear coat of Stone Coat Countertop Epoxy, Epoxy Art Coat, or Ultimate Top Coat.

Achieving this is simple using Stone Coat Countertop Epoxy or Epoxy Art Coat. Our epoxy products are “self-levelling” allowing them to lay perfectly flat and glass smooth. As a best practice upon completion of your epoxy pour, we suggest turning all lights and any sources of air movement off as the countertops cure. If a heat source is needed, place the space heater on the floor, aiming the air movement away from the countertops. Air movement can cause rippling to occur in an actively curing countertop.

This all depends if you’re applying another layer of Ultimate Top Coat as a final layer or opting for only a clear coat of Stone Coat Countertop Epoxy or Epoxy Art Coat. All epoxy should cure a minimum of 4-5 days before installing the countertops and sink. Refrain from sliding items across the surface initially. Applying an optional layer of Ultimate Top Coat as a final step brings durability to a maximum, quickly. We apply Ultimate Top Coat 24 hours after the final clear coat of epoxy. After applying the Ultimate Top Coat, wait 36-48 hours before installing the countertops. This allows for proper curing. The kitchen sink can then be installed on the same day as the countertops.

Enjoy a healthier installation with our low-odour, low-VOC countertop epoxy products. No respirator is required during application, making it more comfortable for you to work.

We do however highly recommend wearing vinyl nitrile gloves and eye protection during the application process, and adding a respirator mask when sanding our products.

Stone Coat Countertop Epoxy and Epoxy Art Coat are specifically formulated for kitchen and bathroom spaces, making these epoxies able to stand up to everyday wear and tear in your home. They can even handle a hot pot or pan with heat resistance up to 232 degrees Celcius. Once fully cured at 30 days, our epoxy countertops can withstand chipping, blistering, peeling, heavy scratching, and offer great UV resistance under normal use.

While it is possible to place hot items directly on the epoxy countertop, it is not a recommended practice. Stone Coat Countertop Epoxy, Epoxy Art Coat and Ultimate Top Coat are designed to withstand temperatures of up to 232 degrees Celcius without sustaining any permanent damage. However, for optimal protection and longevity of your countertop, we advise using a trivet or hot pad when placing hot pans, pots, cast iron, or cookie sheets on your work surface.

When exposed to heat, the epoxy may soften temporarily and then return to its normal hardness once cooled. For added precaution, we suggest using a wood or plastic cutting board with feet as a protective barrier when placing a crock pot on the countertop for extended periods of cooking.

Caring for and maintaining your countertops is a breeze! For tough stains, reach for a microfiber rag or a blue Scotch-Brite sponge. Stay away from harsh cleaners and chemicals that can harm the epoxy surface. Instead, go for a gentle dish soap or an all-purpose cleaner made for laminate or solid surface countertops, diluted with water.

For everyday cleaning, simply wipe down the surface with a damp cloth and dry it with a clean towel. Avoid using abrasive scrubbers or pads that could scratch the surface and dull its shine. To add a delightful scent and a smooth, sleek feel, try our Epoxy Polishing & Cleaning Kit. This product not only leaves your countertop smelling fantastic but also provides an incredibly smooth finish.

When it comes to long-term maintenance, we recommend applying a fresh coat of Stone Coat Countertop Epoxy, Epoxy Art Coat or another layer of Ultimate Top Coat every 6-8 years to keep your countertops looking brand new. Additionally, it’s crucial to protect the surface from hot objects to prevent damage. Always use trivets or cutting boards as a barrier when dealing with heat.

PRO TIP: Wine, mustard, turmeric, and powdered drink mixes have the potential to create stubborn stains on your Stone Coat Countertop Epoxy, Epoxy Art Coat or Ultimate Top Coat. It is important to promptly clean up and avoid letting these products sit and dry on the countertop. To effectively remove stubborn messes, saturate the affected area with 91% isopropyl alcohol and gently wipe it off using a microfiber towel.

We do however highly recommend wearing vinyl nitrile gloves and eye protection during the application process, and adding a respirator mask when sanding our products.

For optimal results, it is recommended to wait for a minimum of 24-36 hours after applying Stone Coat flooring products before walking on it and minimum 7 days before parking a vehicle on the surface. It is also important to avoid turning the vehicle’s wheel without any movement during the initial 30 days. This waiting period ensures the complete curing of all coats of epoxy and top coats, allowing the floor to withstand weight and movement without sustaining any damage.

When choosing the right top coat for your project, it’s important to consider the type of flooring you’re installing and its specific requirements.

For Flake Floors: Our Polyaspartic Top Coat is the perfect final layer. Ultimate Top Coat is not compatible with flake flooring. If you need added slip resistance in high traffic areas, our optional Non-skid Floor Additive is a great choice.
