Give countertops a lustrous, gleaming finish using Super Glaze. Manufactured by the Parks Corp., Super Glaze is a glossy, epoxy-based coating that will adhere to almost any countertop material, including concrete, stone, laminate and wood. Use Super Glaze to refinish old countertops that have grown dull over years of use or to finish new countertops where a protective seal is needed. Finish countertops with Super Glaze on a day where temperatures are approximately 23.9 degrees C to prevent improper or premature curing.
Wipe down a previously existing countertop with a damp sponge to remove any dirt or grime.
Lightly sand with 220-grit sandpaper if the countertop is plastic-based.
Decontaminate the countertop by cleaning it with a rag dampened with rubbing alcohol.
Mask and protect any surrounding surfaces with painter's tape and masking paper.
Paint the countertop with the appropriate penetrating sealer if the countertop is new and the material is porous, such as wood or concrete. Allow the sealer to fully dry.
Measure out equal parts Super Glaze resin and Super Glaze activator in separate clean, disposable containers.
Pour the resin into the activator. Stir with a stir stick for two minutes. Pour the combined resin and activator into a separate, clean container and mix for two more minutes.
Pour the Super Glaze mixture onto the countertop promptly after mixing. Spread the glaze evenly across the entire surface with a plastic spreader. Spread all in the same direction. The final coating should be approximately a sixteenth of an inch thick. Blow lightly to pop any surface bubbles that appear. Stop working the glaze within 20 to 25 minutes of pouring.
Allow the glaze to fully cure before using the countertop. If necessary, add a second coat of glaze.
