It’s easy to forget about the things that make up your home, especially when you’re busy living in it. But neglecting to care for your items properly has consequences—and that includes your resin table.
The most important thing you can do is read this article and take note of what we recommend doing to keep your resin table looking it’s absolute best! We’ll explain how to clean it, where not to sit (and why), and how often you should be cleaning it.
How durable is a resin table top?
Resin tables are very durable. Resin is a synthetic material, so it’s very dense and strong. This means that resin tables can withstand a lot of pressure without breaking or cracking at all.
They don’t absorb liquids either, which means that you’re less likely to have spills on your table – although it does mean you should be careful about what liquid-based foods you put on them (like hot soup).
They also don’t stain easily, so if something does spill onto your table then it won’t be hard work to clean up afterward!
Another thing we love about resin tables is how they handle outdoor use: they won’t get damaged by heat or cold like some other materials would do (such as glass). This makes them perfect for use in any environment – whether indoors or out!
Do resin tables scratch easily?
Yes, resin table tops can scratch with a sharp object, such as a knife or key. However, this is not as easy to do as you might think. Although the surface of your resin table is smooth, it’s also very hard and durable.
The same properties that make it resistant to scratches also make the surface difficult to damage with everyday use.
The most common way for a resin top to get damaged is if you cut something on it with an extremely sharp knife or another sharp object—like an ice pick or screwdriver.
The best way to avoid this type of damage is by putting down a protective covering when you’re cutting directly on your tabletop (such as a folded paper towel).
If this happens anyway and there’s only slight damage on your table’s surface, you can use sandpaper or steel wool (depending on how deep the scratch went in) until all traces have been removed before re-sealing the tabletop with polyurethane (or any other clear sealant).
How do you clean a resin dining room table?
To clean your resin dining room table, first, wipe it down with a damp cloth. Don’t use chemicals or abrasive materials on its surface. A damp cloth with soapy water is okay, but make sure not to leave any water on the surface of the table.
How long do epoxy resin tables last?
For example, it won’t last as long if you leave it out in the sun or outside of your house all year round. You can expect an epoxy resin table to last at least 10 years before any signs of wear and tear start showing up.
- Cleaning: Cleaning your table with a damp cloth is usually enough for most stains, grease spots and dust build up on the surface, but if there’s an oily substance that has seeped into the pores of the wood and dried out over time then we recommend applying mineral oil with a clean cloth (letting it soak in for about 15 minutes) before wiping off any excess. This will prevent any further damage from occurring by removing old oils from deep within the grain while preventing new ones from entering into contact with freshly polished surfaces.*
How do I make my resin table top clear?
- There are two types of resin, UV-stable, and non-UV stable. If you want to keep your resin clear, choose a UV-stable product.
- Keep your table out of direct sunlight as much as possible. If you leave it in the sun for too long, the color can fade or even turn white!
How do you finish an epoxy table?
There are several ways to remove air bubbles from your resin table.
- Use a heat gun to remove air bubbles. Heat the surface of the table with the heat gun until it’s warm, but not hot to touch. The resin will change color as it heats up and then become clear again when cool. This process can be repeated until all bubbles are gone from the table surface.
- Use a torch to remove air bubbles. You may have seen this technique used in movies where they bring a blowtorch close enough so that when they pull away there’s an explosion of molten plastic coming off in their hands – that’s what we call “dynamite!” The same thing happens with epoxy resins: if you put them under too much direct heat (i.e., by using a blowtorch) then you’ll get big splashes coming off onto your clothes or even worse – onto your face! We advise against this method unless you really know what you’re doing; however, if done correctly then it can produce great results quickly without having any negative effects on health or property damage caused by fumes produced during such high temperatures being applied directly over prolonged periods of time around combustible materials like paper products such as a newspaper which could ignite easily if left inside while heating up excess resin outside first before pouring back into the container after cooling down sufficiently enough again…
Can you put hot things on resin?
No, you can’t put hot things on resin. It is heat resistant, but it can melt. If you put a hot plate on top of your table, it could damage the surface and possibly burn you too.
Use a trivet or something similar if you need someone to hold your cup while it cools down.
If you have a fireplace in your home, don’t leave resin near it because it may catch fire as well!
Can you buff scratches out of resin?
Scratches are a fact of life when it comes to resin tables. Because of their smooth finish, they’re more prone to scratching than wood or metal tables. The good news is that you can buff out most scratches yourself if you have the right materials and know-how.
First, sand the scratched area with 220-grit sandpaper until it is smooth again. Once this is done you have two options:
- Use a compound polisher on your table using a polishing pad and compound cream
- Use a finishing pad with liquid wax polish
If you’re interested in purchasing a resin table, but don’t know where to start, we hope this article has been helpful. The information provided here will help you find the best resin tables for your home.
Resin is an extremely durable material that can withstand scratches and dents with ease. In fact, scratches can often be buffed out with common household items like toothpaste or furniture polish!
Resin is also heat resistant so if your table gets too hot from being near fireplaces or stoves it won’t melt away either!
Since resin doesn’t need finishing, it’s easy to clean with soap and water as well as dry clothes like paper towels or even old t-shirts if you’re looking for something more natural than standard cleaning products like Windex glass cleaner spray bottles which could possibly damage the surface over time due to certain chemicals included within their formula (more on this later).
