Epoxy resin tables are great for outdoor use, especially if you have kids. They are very durable and can withstand a lot of punishment. If you want to know more about them, keep reading!
Epoxy resin tables are made from an epoxy resin table top with legs that are made from steel or aluminum. The material used in manufacturing epoxy resin table tops is usually polyester, which is known for its strength and durability.
An epoxy resin table top can be any color you want it to be; they come in just about every color imaginable. The tabletop itself is usually made up of two layers: one layer will consist of the actual table top material while another layer will contain protective coatings such as lacquer or varnish that makes it more resistant to scratches and stains than when applied directly onto raw wood surfaces without these additional coatings applied first (this process typically takes place after curing).
Is epoxy table scratch resistant?
Yes, epoxy resin is scratch resistant. It’s hard to scratch an epoxy table. Epoxy resin is highly durable and can withstand high pressure and impact from sharp objects such as knives, forks, etc.
Epoxy resin has an excellent self-healing property that helps it resist scratches and other damages caused by sharp objects like knives or forks.

Does epoxy get scratched easily?
Epoxy is not scratch resistant, so it is not a good material for knife-edge counters. But epoxy can handle moderate abuse and impact, so it’s fine for general use in the kitchen or bath.
Epoxy is easily polished to repair scratches, but if you have deep scratches that need filling, then you need to go back to your contractor for help.
Do resin tables scratch easily?
Epoxy resin tables like this one are made of polyurethane, which is a very durable material. It will scratch at the same rate as any other surface, so you can scratch this table if you take an emery board and start rubbing away at it.
That said, there’s no need to worry about scratching an epoxy resin table unless your intentions are malicious or careless (like leaving a wine glass on top). To prevent scratches:
- Don’t place anything sharp on top of it—even if it’s just one of those little plastic cups from your morning coffee run! Not only will they catch on the smooth surface, but even the slightest bit of pressure may leave behind a mark.
- Avoid using abrasive cleaners on your table—and definitely don’t go rubbing down any part with sandpaper! You might be tempted to get rid of some stains with something like that because they seem like they’d work well on wood or metal surfaces…but don’t do it because it’ll actually make things worse by scratching up whatever’s underneath all that dirt (which may include layers upon layers of tinted epoxy resin).
How do you get scratches out of an epoxy resin table?
As long as the scratch isn’t deep, you can fix it.
- Use sandpaper and start with a coarse grade, working your way up to finer grades until you reach the desired level of smoothness. You can also use a buffing wheel on your electric drill to polish out scratches on the epoxy resin table top surface. If you have access to a belt sander, that will work too! Just be careful not to gouge or damage any adjacent surfaces in the process—there’s nothing more frustrating than getting down to bare wood after hours of labor only to find yourself back at square one because something else needs fixing too!
- Avoid putting anything sharp or abrasive in direct contact with your table surface (like cups/glasses). Scratches are likely caused by these kinds of everyday items rubbing against each other over time; if left unchecked they could lead up to unsightly gouges eventually so avoid using hard objects like metal utensils or knives when eating meals indoors 🙂
How do I stop my epoxy countertop from scratching?
You can protect your epoxy table from scratches by using a protective layer on the surface. This can be done with a cutting board when preparing food, a tablecloth to protect the surface when eating or playing games, or even just a placemat!
How durable is an epoxy table?
Epoxy is extremely durable and hard to scratch. However, it is not scratch resistant. It can scratch from sharp objects such as sharp knives or even fingernails if you’re not careful.
Epoxy won’t stain or fade over time but can discolor when exposed to heat sources like fire pits or grills on an outdoor table. Depending on the color of your epoxy table, it may become dull over time due to exposure to sunlight without proper protection from UV rays.
Will epoxy countertops scratch?
You may have heard that epoxy is scratch resistant, not scratch proof. But what does that mean? Scratch resistance means that if you try to scratch an epoxy countertop, it will be harder for you to do than it would be with other materials like wood or resin. Epoxy has a hardness of 5-7 on the Mohs Scale (the scale where a diamond is 10).
By comparison, resin can be anywhere from 2-to 4 and wood ranging from 1-2 on the same scale. So while epoxy is more scratch resistant than wood or resin, it can still get scratched!
Here are some tips for preventing scratches:
- Wipe up spills right away with a damp rag before they have time to dry and harden into something sharp
- Keep silverware in drawers instead of leaving knives sticking out on display blocks
How do you fix scratches? There are three ways: sanding down deep grooves; filling remaining shallow grooves with putty; applying a coat of clear polyurethane over top
Does epoxy chip?
Epoxy is more durable than other coatings and materials. It’s also less likely to crack or chip than other materials.
You can scratch an epoxy table. If you’ve been wondering why some tables are scratched and others are not, the answer is that it depends on the type of finish used. In this article we looked at two common finishes: polyurethane and epoxy.
While epoxy will last for years without scratching, it’s important to take precautions against scratches early in its lifespan by using coasters and placemats when possible.
