  • Pot Life/Work Time 35-40 minutes depending on temperature & any added heat, Put on substrate as soon as possible to get most work time. If left to sit in cup, pot life will be quickly reduced.

  • Next layer or recoat can be done in 8 hours or so.

iCoat CT Countertop /Art Epoxy - Instructions:

Thoroughly mix equal parts of Resin Part A with Hardner Part B in a clean, dust free container, with a wooden, (plastic or metal) paint stir stick. Stir for 3-4 minutes, continually scraping the sides and bottom of the mixing container as well as the stir stick. Transfer entire contents into a second container and mix for an additional 1-2 minutes (this is not necessary if you are confidant with your mix). Mix a maximum of 1/2 gallon Part A to 1/2 gallon Part B. Mixing larger amounts will significantly decrease working time. Pour immediately onto countertop leaving a small amount in container for edges. Spread epoxy evenly using a foam brush. After applying, bubbles will appear. Use a propane torch held 6 inches from the surface, and sweep rapidly across entire surface until bubbles disappear. Process may need to be repeated if additional bubbles appear. This will leave a glass-like finish.

For best curing results, room temperature should be between 75-85F (24-29C). Cured to the touch in 24 hours, complete cure in 7 days.





iCoat CT Countertop/Art Epoxy Resin, General Information:


iCoat Countertop/Art epoxy is an excellent finish coat for all types of surfaces iCoat Counter/Art Resin will produce a crystal clear high-gloss finish with unparalleled non-yellowing protection. iCoat countertop/art epoxy has excellent bubble release properties and can be built to ¼” in a single pour. Self-levelling. This epoxy is formulated with excellent UV resistant properties, meets all usual countertop food-safe standards, and is scorch resistant to 500 degrees. This epoxy is also an excellent choice for jewelry, tumblers, coasters, doming and many other craft projects as well as being durable enough to withstand the busiest of restaurant tabletops and kitchens.

iCoat Countertop/Art Resin is the epoxy of choice for artisans and hobbyists working with jewelry, tumblers, coasters, cutting boards, and more. Low odor, safe for use indoors. Apply up to 1/4” thick over an area and to 1” mass in smaller molds producing crystal clear results.


Product Description: iCoat Countertop/Art Resin (Epoxy & Hardener) will produce a crystal clear high-gloss finish with unparalleled non-yellowing protection. Formulated specifically for Art. Self-leveling. Cures to touch in 24 hrs, fully cured in 3 - 7 days.


Application Instructions: Great for use with shallow silicone molds and art projects. Adheres to most material surfaces. Epoxy & Hardener must be between 75-85°F (24-29°C). Humidity should be under 60%. Wearing nitrile gloves, mix equal parts of Epoxy & Hardener in a clean container with a stir stick. Stir until even texture (no striations following stirring stick in mix cup). To spread evenly on a dust-free non-porous surface use a foam brush. This will produce a glass-like finish. For the best curing results, room temperature should be between 75-85°F (24-29°C).


Surface Preparation: All areas must be dry and dust free. Try to use in a clean dust free environment.


Application Instructions:

For superior results, substrate, countertop, moulds and especially the epoxy resin must be between 75-85F (24-29C). Humidity must be under 60%. Temperature plays a huge part in great results.


Important Tip: Get your epoxy to a more workable temperature by ensuring the bottles are not cold, but warm to the touch.

You can leave the bottles sitting in semi-hot water to slowly warm before mixing the two parts together. Be sure to thoroughly dry the bottles off so no drips of water from outside the bottle can enter your mix cup while pouring, because that will effect the cure negatively.

Some people use a heat mat (seed warmers or reptile/pet heat mats also work) to set their bottles on to warm.

Your work time/pot life will be effected by the temperature of the epoxy. If epoxy is too hot, or if it sits in mix cup, it can go into pre-mature exotherm (some also refer to it as flash curing).

If your epoxy is too cool, it will have tons of additional bubbles during & after mixing, and it will be harder to mix fully, which can cause an undesirable finish.


Storage and Handling: Store at or above 60°F (15.5°C). Do not store in direct sunlight. Non-flammable. No VOCs, fumes, or BPAs. Certified food-safe when cured.

iCoat Urethane 2112 Clear Coat, is a high gloss, clear, non-yellowing, single component, quick drying urethane dispersion, that is designed to top coat over iCoat's products (often used on more iCoat Products aside from what we are currently carrying in Canada - iCoat Metal Illusion system, iCoat Flooring, and iCoat wall system, iCoat garage flooring system). U2112 provides excellent adhesion over prepared substrates. Dry time is between 30-45 minutes depending on temperature and humidity.


Fast-drying Urethane sealer can have multiple layers and can be sanded.​ The best way to seal wood preventing and mitigating outgassing/bubbles that may form on wood projects prior to coating with epoxy. Also works great as a sealer for wood decks and in places that moisture becomes present. Instead of using fast-set epoxies that have a tendency to yellow, use 2112 as your base coat on tumblers so you can get all the bling onto them before adding the epoxy clear coat. Make sure it is completely dry before putting resin over it. You can use a heat gun or blow dryer to help process.


Note: Applying with a brush will leave brush streaks, so most applications are rolled on.

Primer

Sealer

High Gloss Clear Coat

No VOC's

Non Yellowing

Great surface prep for resin projects (can also be used to seal glitter, vinyl, decals marble dips & more).

Can also use 2112 on tumblers to apply glitter and fabric and more.



Storage and Handling:

Caution: Irritant. Store at or above 60F (15.5C). Do not store in direct sunlight. Liquid and ambient temperature of 75F (23.8C) will produce optimal results.


Emergency and First Aid Procedures: Avoid skin contact. Wear nitrile gloves when handling. If skin contact occurs, wash immediately with soap and water, if abrasion is needed add sugar & a bit of oil to the soap mix (or use a mechanics degreaser scrub). If irritation persists, get medical attention. Eye protection is recommended. If eye contact occurs, flush with large quantities of water. If hardener or mixed resin and hardener is swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Dilute by giving water or milk to drink. If resin (part a) only is ingested, induce vomiting. Always get immediate medical attention if swallowed. Keep out of reach of children.
