What is the best resin for wood coating and rivertables?

Our SuperGloss Epoxy Resin is great for seal coats and glossy top coating finishes (thin 1/8" - 1/4" thick). 

If you need thicker pours 1" + we recommend our Deep Pour Epoxy Resin. 

Here's why.

Not all epoxy resin is formulated to be poured in one shot. Thicker pours have more volume of mixture, which produces more heat due to the chemical reaction.
This often creates overheating, cracking and microbubbles in some epoxies not meant to be used in deep pour applications.  

If you need a thick look, but don't have Deep Pour Epoxy Resin, you can complete multiple pours instead.

Here is an example how:

After you properly mix and pour the first smaller layer, it will become a solid. It may still be tacky to touch within about 12-24 hours. This is an optimal time to add another layer. 

If the layer cures and is dry to touch, you may want to consider lightly sanding the surface to create a stronger chemical bond prior to pouring the next layer. 

To avoid pouring several layers at a time, consider our Deep Pour Epoxy Resin. This has a longer pot life, is more viscous (like water) and resists the heat more naturally than other epoxy resin. And it may be poured upto 2" at a time.
