PENNY FLOOR TOP COAT EPOXY OPTIONS

 

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.


WE OFFER A SPECIAL VERSION OF BASIC NO BLUSH (Basic No Blush BARTOP) for table, bar top, and penny floor applications.



Differences between Bar Tops and Penny Floor Top Coat Epoxies - HOW MUCH? HOW THICK?

# 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 (so.....   a 1.5 gal kit of our No Blush epoxy would cover 9 sf. The same epoxy rolled on to  your garage floor would cover about 160 sf.  - I tell customers that you keep adding layers of epoxy until you run out of epoxy or money - LOL)!

 

#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.


USE THIS EPOXY FOR YOUR PENNY FLOOR:

Basic No Blush - BARTOP

A specially formulated version of our popular Basic No Blush epoxy. Blushing is a waxy film that can form on the top of cheaper, lower quality epoxies. We use only non blushing epoxy chemicals.

 

Basic No Blush BARTOP has the specific properties helpful for penny floors:

* contains bubble breakers (bubble are a real problem with epoxy pours - even the other on-line vendors are forced to address this issue). We are the only people with bubble breakers in this class of epoxy resins. It gives the part a cloudy look in the jugs, but totally clear when used on tables and bars.

* reduced viscosity - a thinner epoxy system for better self leveling and spreadability.

* longer pot life - about 20 or 25% more working time per batch of epoxy than the regular Basic No Blush epoxy. This is helpful in warmer weather and when coving larger surface areas.

How To Top Coat Your Penny Floor With Epoxy

 

# 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 (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 more coats of the Basic No Blush (with slow summer cure option), epoxy 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.

 

#4) consider applying a thin (thin is important) 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.


QUESTION: "My wife and I are installing a penny floor it is about 288sf. How much of the basic no blush epoxy will i need , to complete the job . also what thickness would you recommend, I was thinking of applying 1/16 inch using a plastic v-notched trowel . I was also thinking 2 quarts of varnish should be enough for the finial finish coat . Please correct my guesstimates if inaccurate all help would be appreciated."  Marcos 11/2019
 

 

ANSWER: If you were rolling it on your garage floor a 1.5 gal kit of the no blush epoxy would cover about 150 plus square feet. If you put multiple layers down for a thickness of 1/4 inch, that same 1.5 gallons would only cover 9 square feet. - so the call is yours. I tell folks they keep adding epoxy layers until they run out of money or run out of epoxy. You can always order more epoxy a week or two later before you varnish.

A quart of varnish covers about 75 sf - might want 2 coats or more over major work areas (in front of sink, doorway etc).

Make up a test run first - say in a 1 square foot cake pan so you can get a bit of the learning curve behind you, computer the epoxy thickness you want or can afford, get a feel for work time, set time etc, observe the varnish top coat look.


We are the only vendor that offers a 'long working time - long pot life resin system with bubble breakers. Theses are really good things, especially if working in temps over about 75 degrees. Why don't the other companies do this? They are not coating companies. They don't formulate their products, they buy the cheapest imported (???) they can find, hire slick web design folks. They have no control (or experience) with the epoxy resin they sell. You decide if this is they way you want to go!


TAKE AWAYS

 

1) USE A NON WHITE GROUT

 

2) CLEAN THE PENNIES AGAIN

 

3) THIN COAT OF EPOXY OR SOLVENT THINNED EPOXY OVER THE PENNIES (IN CASE OF BUBBLES OR NON-LEVEL FLOOR)

 

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.


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.
