TRANSCRIPT:
Products Used:
DCI 100% Epoxy Countertop Sealer
10 mil Squeegee
Metallics

For smaller projects like this, mix product two parts “A” or resin with one part “B” or the activator. If mixing the entire kit, pour the resin into the activator can and mix thoroughly for 3-5 minutes until completely combined.

Metallics can be added to Part “A” Resin before mixing if desired. The amount will vary with the quantity of epoxy. Always mix thoroughly to combine making sure no clumps are visible in the material before adding Part “B” Hardener.

Add Part “B” Hardener to Part “A” Resin and mix for an additional 2-3 minutes. Apply sealer to surface with care in a well-ventilated space.

Pour a ribbon of epoxy onto the countertop surface careful to avoid dripping the sealer over the edges.

Using a 10 mil squeegee begin to gauge an even coat depth by pulling the squeegee across the face of the countertop. Repeat as needed to cover the entire surface.

Using a de-fuzzed handheld 3/8″ nap roller, gently roll the sealer into place rolling in the opposite direction from the squeegee application.

Carefully roll the sealer onto the edges of the countertop avoiding drips and without overlapping the face of the countertop.

Spiked Roller Application:
Carefully roll the spiked roller down the length of the countertop until the entire face has been covered.

The spiked roller will prevent and remove bubbles that might occur as a result of air displacement during application.

All evidence of the “holes” created by the roller will disappear as the sealer self-levels.

Concrete Countertop Form Release Kit Application:
Carefully and randomly spray Countertop Form Release on the face of the countertop before the epoxy sets up to create the unique finish featured in this video.

The chemical reaction takes only minutes to occur and when lightly spritzed causes no sealer imperfections and leaves the surface completely smooth. This step is optional and can be omitted.
