iCoat Products Information

Updated: Nov 11

iCoat Products has been in the business in North America for 30 years, and creates quality products with superior results.

The iCoat products we are currently stocking in Canada, include:

  • 2 High Heat Counter Top Epoxy Resins, two viscosity choices:

  • Regular Countertop epoxy is High viscosity (iCoat CT Countertop Epoxy 30)

  • Medium viscosity Countertop epoxy (iCoat CT Medium)

  • 3 Castings Epoxy Resins

  • 1:1 ratio (iCoat CE4100 HV)

  • 2:1 ratio (iCoat TP21 Hard Cast)

  • Deep Pour 2:1 (iCoat Depth)

  • Fast Set epoxy (iCoat Fast Set)

  • Urethane Primer/Sealer/Clear Coat that can also be used as a fast set (iCoat Wood Primer sealer Urethane 2112)

Note: When using iCoat products, this manufacturer strongly advises use of a thermal gun (infrared thermometer), for best results using their epoxies. This takes the guesswork out of epoxy temperature, as the temperature of a room is not an effective guide. As you get used to using the thermometer, and you automatically check the temperature each and every time you use epoxy, you will achieve consistent results with your projects.

Where a project requires epoxy warmed for best results, iCoat suggests putting the bottles in a bucket of warmer to hot tap water (that correctly fits the bottles, so they don't tip sideways). Water conducts heat 20x faster then air, so it will work better & faster then a seed matt.

Different projects may require epoxy be heated more than others.

For example if you are using it as a top-coat, it does not need to be heated to as high a temperature, since you can easily pop bubbles on substrate. Not heating it as high, also gives more pot life to work with getting effects on substrate.

However, if you are pouring the epoxy into a mould, you will need to ensure you get it to correct temperature to have the most clear bubble free results.

iCoat CT Countertop / Art Epoxy (info applies to both regular Countertop & Medium Viscosity Version)

  • The regular Countertop is a High viscosity epoxy, the Medium is medium viscosity

  • 1:1 ratio

  • 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.

  • Self levels up to 1/8" thick

  • Max pour depth 1/8" or 3/16" up to 1/4" (deeper on some jewelry type items, mass & volume dependant).

  • Cures to touch in 24 hours or overnight in warm room (continues to cure over next several days).

  • Do not cure in cool temperature, or cure may be incomplete.

  • High heat 500F scorch resistant.

  • Shore D hardness at 7 days cure is D80, at 14 days cure is D85

iCoat CT Countertop & Medium Viscosity 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.
