Epoxy Surface Preparation:
Allow fresh epoxy to cure 24 hours before sanding the surface and edges with 220 grit sandpaper. When applying the natural finish for best results use a random orbital sander and sand the clear coat of epoxy until a matte finish is achieved. (Sand with 320 grit for Gloss Finish) Clean the dust off with 91% isopropyl alcohol and let it fully dry. Pro Tip: The cleaner the surface before applying the UTC the better the finish will be, take time to remove all dust from the countertop before rolling out the UTC. Use contactor masking tape to remove the lint from the 1/4'' roller covers. Roll the rollers across the tape until all lint is removed. before mixing the material. For a 40 square foot kitchen prepare 2 rollers to apply the material wet and 4 rollers to dry roll and remove excess material.
Natural Matte Finish - Multiply the project square footage by .275 to determine how much Ultimate Top Coat to mix. Multiply the amount of UTC needed for the project by .16 to determine the amount of room temperature water to add to the UTC after mixing. Measure and mix the material with a flat bottom paint stick at a 2:1 ratio in a mixing cup for 45-60 seconds. Add in the room temperature water and mix again until a consistent mixture is achieved.
Gloss Finish - Multiply the project square footage by .275 to determine how much Ultimate Top Coat to mix. Multiply the amount of UTC needed for the project by .5 to determine the amount of room temperature water to add to the UTC after mixing. Measure and mix the material with a flat bottom paint stick at a 2:1 ratio in a mixing cup for 45-60 seconds. Add in the room temperature water and mix again until a consistent mixture is achieved.
Pour mixed Ultimate Top Coat into a paint pan. Use a delinted 1/4'' nap microfiber roller to apply the material over the project one piece at a time. Make sure to apply material over the entire surface then any edge. Take time to get the material as even as possible as you apply the UTC wet before switching to the dry roller to remove excess material using light pressure. Feather out high point lap lines with the wet roller 1st. Switch to a fresh clean dry roller and with light pressure and in one direction remove excess material. When the dry roller start to make a sticky noise switch to a new dry roller. The material goes on milky white and will dry clear. Pro Tip: Keep from over dry rolling. As the material sets up, if you go back to it and try and dry roll more the texture will stipple and stand up. Faint lap lines will disappear, so don't fret when you see subtle lap lines in the milky material. The Ultimate Top Coat will be dry to the touch in 8-10 hours and ready for light use in 24-48 hours.
