This document is intended as an introductory guide to the application and handling of epoxy resin products. This information will give you some basic knowledge about the product, including its chemical makeup and application techniques.
Can you use deep pour epoxy for table top epoxy?
Yes, you use deep pour epoxy for table top epoxy. Many people do it and there’s no reason not to. The main difference between the two types of epoxy is that deep pour is designed to be much thinner than other kinds of table top epoxy.

What happens if you pour epoxy too deep?
You poured the epoxy too deep. It’s likely that you’ll need to do it again, so don’t feel bad!
This is one of the most common issues we encounter while working with epoxy and other polyurethane products. A lot of people don’t realize how thick or thin they should be pouring their hardener, so they go straight for the jug and pour as much as they can get into their container. The result is usually a lumpy mess because it hasn’t been mixed properly or mixed at all!
The easiest way to remedy this issue is by using a paint mixer attachment on your drill, which will ensure that all parts of your mixture have been thoroughly blended together before pouring it into your mold (or onto whatever else).
How thick can you pour table top resin?
You can pour table top resin up to 2 inches thick. The thicker your pour, the longer it will take for your epoxy to cure and that means a greater chance of bubbles forming in the cured product. If you are planning on pouring a thick layer of table top epoxy resin (3 inches or more), we recommend that you consider purchasing our “The Busy Maker” instead of The Busy Maker II because it has a larger capacity and will reduce curing time.
To help prevent bubbles from forming, always mix thoroughly before adding any drops to your container of hardened resin.
How deep can you pour epoxy at once?
The maximum thickness of epoxy that you should pour at one time is 1/4 – 1/2 inches. It is possible to achieve a deeper pour, but this will require multiple pours with an appropriate amount of thinning agents between each layer.
You can achieve a thicker pour by using two different colors in the same project. For example, you can use two shades of brown for your tabletop epoxy project and create a striped pattern on top of the surface. The stripes will act as barriers between layers and prevent them from mixing together too much during the curing process
Can you deep pour epoxy resin?
You can deep-pour epoxy resin.
Yes, you can use deep pour epoxy as a seal coat.
Can you use deep pour epoxy as a seal coat?
The seal coat is a thin layer of epoxy resin that is applied to the surface of your project. It helps prevent bubbles from forming in your final top coat, and also helps protect surfaces from scratches during handling.
The seal coat should be applied in a thin layer so that it doesn’t become too thick or cause an uneven surface on top of your finish.
Can you pour epoxy 2 inches thick?
You can pour epoxy 2 inches thick and it will cure just fine. You’ll want to use a slower curing epoxy, like our Epoxi-Poxy Slow Cure or Epo-Tek 401 Fast Set, and make sure you give the floor plenty of time to cure before walking on it.
The project below is an example of how you can pour a 2-inch thick layer of epoxy on your table top. In this case, we used an Epoxi-Poxy Slow Cure/Epo-Tek 401 Fast Set mix with a hardener ratio at 1:1 (equal parts resin and hardener)
How thin can you pour deep pour epoxy?
You can pour your epoxy table top as thin as 0.75 inches, but you won’t be able to see the epoxy if you do. To get a smooth finish on your table top, it’s best to pour the epoxy at 1-1/2 inches thick or more in layers. Once the epoxy has cured and hardened, you can use a belt sander to level out any high spots or low spots on your tabletop surface.
It’s important to note that if you’re pouring over an existing surface like tile or concrete, it’s best not to pour too thin of an application as liquids will seep through these materials and compromise their strength and integrity before they cure completely
You can use a deep pour epoxy as a seal coat, but it’s not recommended. It’s better to use non-sag epoxy as a seal coat because it will result in fewer bubbles and fewer issues with the top of your table.
However, if you’re determined to use deep pour epoxy as a seal coat, here are some tips:
- Make sure that the entire surface is free from dust and dirt before you begin pouring.
- Pour slowly so that each layer is smooth and doesn’t have any gaps or voids where dust could get trapped
- You can pour up to 2 inches of deep pour resin per day before having to sand off any bubbles or ripples on top
