PENNY FLOOR TOP COAT EPOXY OPTIONS

 

We are the only table top / bar top / penny floor epoxy source that offers as one of our multiple epoxy options (option #3), a multi coat, non blushing, epoxy with bubble breakers and extended work times (for better self leveling and larger penny floor projects). Consider Basic No Blush Epoxy with Slow Summer Curing agent. We can offer these kinds of options because we are an epoxy company and not a marketing firm selling some generic bulk product through a slick web site.

 

Introduction

We are a long established  epoxy company and have epoxies for all sorts of applications including four different options for epoxy covered table tops and bar tops. There are some similarities and some big differences between table tops and penny floors. We will not repeat all the similarities. To get a feel for the epoxy process and options visit our bar top and table top site. Note the penny floors are inside building so UV yellowing of epoxy is not that much of an issue. But, epoxies are sort of soft so your floor my scratch easily. Often a top coat of marine spar varnish (used on wood floors) is applied over the epoxy as a repairable top coat.

 

 

Differences between Bar Tops and Penny Floor Top Coat Epoxies

# 1)  cost!! - a gallon of epoxy applied a 1/4 of an inch thick only covers 6 square feet and that gallon costs about $75 so that is about $12.50 per square feet. That might be an OK price on a small table (or a commercial bar top generating thousands of dollars of sales each night) but way too much for the 50 or 100 square foot bathroom or lobby. Three rolled on coats of epoxy costs about $2 - $2.25 per square foot.

 

#2) levelness - for a thick coat of epoxy to form an even surface it needs to be level. You can level a table top but your bathroom floor is probably far from perfectly level. It could be off by 1/4 inch or 3/4 of an inch from one end of the room to the other. So all our epoxy will pool toward the low end of the floor. Even worse, it could find a tiny gap along the floor and wall and disappear into the wall or the room below.

 

#3) Penny floors are much larger than table tops and the best epoxy penny floor epoxies are available in a long (or slow) pot life version. This gives you more time to work with the epoxy before it begins to gel and set up on you.

 

Our Basic No Blush epoxy (with regular or slow curing agents - Slow cure version is recommended for most penny floors as it gives you about twice the working time after you mixed it) is the only epoxy for your project which contains BYK (tm) air release agents (i.e. bubble breakers). Why is that? We FORMULATE our epoxies for the best possible properties for the job at hand. As manufacturers we control the 'recipe' for the epoxy (watch our company YouTube video). As the name implies, we also use "Non Blushing" resins/chemicals (nothing for you to worry about, but it is a really good thing if you are doing multiple layers of epoxy). The other sites you've visited are not epoxy manufacturers. They have no control over the formulation of the epoxies they sell. They buy bulk, generic epoxy at the cheapest price they can (from countries unknown - Note our epoxies are made in the USA). The result of their budget epoxy product is something with some really strange/weird mixing, temperature instructions and warnings - all packaged on a really slick marketing department web site. - (email them on Sat. night and see if they answer you!)

Our Bio Clear 810 epoxy is a favorite with professionals. It addresses the bubble issue by being very very thin. It requires and edge all around and pours of about 1/4 inch thick.

How To Top Coat Your Penny Floor With Epoxy

USER FEEDBACK WARNING!!  SOLVENT CLEAN YOUR PENNIES BEFORE USE AND THEN APPLY WITH LATEX GLOVES - OIL OR WAX ON THE PENNIES CAN CAUSE FISHEYES AND ODD THINGS IN THE EPOXY TOP COATS.

 

# 1) grout your penny floor with a non snowy white grout (pure white will show even the tiniest amount of epoxy yellowing or any sort of stain)

 

#2) bubbles from air in the grout or around the pennies may form. Unexpected things can happen too, so it is best to first apply a thin coat of epoxy (thin solvent free (Basic No Blush epoxy) , or solvent thinned solvent free (Basic No Blush epoxy solvent thinned a little bit with acetone or xylene), or an solvent based   ESP 155  epoxy sealer (not for sale in California). If something strange happens you will be glad you did a THIN first coat of epoxy. Ditto if your floor is so un-level that all the epoxy collects in some corner or under the water or under the toilet, etc.

 

#3) apply a marine type epoxy that contains bubble breakers and a slow curing agent (for longer working time) over the surface. Apply with brush - roller - squeegee as thick or thin as you like (obviously sort of thin if your floor is not level and a thicker coat will run and pool in the low spots of the floor/room). You can repeat this step as many times as you like until it has the thickness you are looking for. Cost is about $2 - $2.25 per square foot for the epoxy applied in three coats of the Basic No Blush clear epoxy with slow curing agent.  No one else offers a clear table top, bar top, or penny floor with a slow set curing agent and bubble breakers.

 

#4) consider applying a coat or two marine spar varnish (our India Spar Varnish - not for sale in California) was a repairable top coat finish over the epoxy. This is the finish found on boats and hardwood floors. It is slightly amber but will appear clear and glossy unless you used white grout. If the floor begins to look bad, you can simply apply another coat of spar varnish. Let spills and stains affect the varnish and not the $$ pricey epoxy.

 

Both ESP 155 and Basic No Blush can be found on our Favorite Products page.


TAKE AWAYS

1) USE A NON WHITE GROUT

2) CLEAN THE PENNIES AGAIN

2) THIN COAT OF EPOXY OR SOLVENT THINNED EPOXY OVER THE PENNIES (IN CASE OF BUBBLES OR UN LEVEL FLOOR)

3) BEST TO USE AN EPOXY WITH BUBBLE BREAKERS AND A LONG (SLOW) WORKING TIME (CAN THIN SLIGHTLY WITH MORE SOLVENT FOR MORE TIME AND MORE LEVELING)

4) MULTIPLE COATS OF EPOXY UNTIL YOU GET THE THICKNESS YOU LIKE (1 GAL OF EPOXY COULD COVER 100 SF ROLLED ON, BUT ONLY 6 SF AT 1/4 INCH THICK). ONE COAT PER DAY

5) OPTION SPAR VARNISH TOPCOAT APPLIED A FEW DAYS LATER TO PROTECT THE EPOXY. LET DRY FOR 2-3 DAY.

6) YOU CAN WALK ON THE EPOXY THE NEXT DAY BUT DON'T PUT ANYTHING ON IT AND TREAT WITH CARE FOR ABOUT A WEEK.
