Epoxy pour
« on: July 16, 2020, 07:08:22 PM »

 I'm making a bench out of this Spruce slab, and have a question for y'all about pouring epoxy. I'm familiar with West System epoxy (105/205), I use it a lot for cracks and voids. Recently bought some total boat epoxy for some pours. The question is, any troubles putting epoxy over other finishes? does it stick to other finishes? This slab I have sealed and stained with spar urethane mixed with some minwax color stain and a little mineral spirits to thin it out so it soaks in. I've seen where guys also put a thin coat of epoxy first and then do the thick pour. What are your experiences? Any help appreciated! Thanks, Flee

I believe as with anytime youre putting  one finish over another, you need to scuff up the surface to give somehting for the next finish to adhere to.  I recommend the seal coat to help with reducing air bubbles.  Make sure the pour on coat goes on before the seal coat fully cures.

The best information will come from the epoxy manufacturer.
