Scratches to the surface of a new epoxy resin table or a freshly completed bartop is super frustrating. They will occationally occur no matter the type of project or epoxy resin being used.
Fortunately, it does not have to be a permenant eye sore.
We have a solution to help bring it back to life while significantly reducing the likelyhood of repouring an entirely new layer of epoxy resin to the surface. ✨🪵
Let us start by cleaning and drying the entire surface area.
Next, pick up or rent a buffer with polishing pad (or similar depicted in photo).
Grab some Meguiar’s Mirror Glaze - Pro Speed Compound. A general polisher should get the job done, but we like Meguiar’s Mirror Glaze. It can be found at most hardware stores too.
Apply a liberal amount of the glaze to the tabletop. Use the buffer to work the glaze into the tabletop’s affected area first. Ultimately you will want to buff the entire surface, but we like to give the scratched area a little more attention to start.
Once we buff/polish the entire surface, we used a simple glass cleaner and rag to wipe it clean.
Bam! Now we should have a super glossy table again without scratches.
*** You may need to repeat the method an additional 1-2 times depending on the depths of the scratches. One pass can typically resolve superficial scratches.
Here is a quick demo video of the process to follow on our Instagram
***Disclaimer*** If those superficial scratches actually turn out to be Deep Gouges even after you try this method, the next step would be to consider another flood coat of epoxy resin.
Be sure to thoroughly clean the surface area and lightly sand prior. This helps create a better chemical bond between the old layer and new layer.
