    Application Instructions:

    These application instructions are intended to provide guidelines for installation of Direct Colors Metallic Epoxy Countertop Kit . There are no set rules for applying these pigments, as they are merely a creative component to the overall system.

     

    1.      Surface Preparation

    All surfaces should be clean, dry and free of any debris prior to application. Apply to countertops with a 60-100 grit profile. Sand pre-cast countertop surfaces poured on a melamine mat before applying. Sand down or fill with slurry all "pinhole" air pockets or voids in the countertop surface prior to application.

     

    2.       Tinted Concrete Sealer Primer / Base Color Coat

    The tinted concrete sealer primer/basecoat provides the necessary contrasting canvas for the translucent metallic pigments. Please note that the base coat color will influence the overall countertop appearance due to the translucency of the metallic coat. For example, a white or light base coat color will create a lighter final appearance than a black or darker base coat color regardless of the metallic finish chosen.

    Using a 3/8" nap roller, apply two coats tinted concrete sealer base coats, allowing up to 12 hours drying time between applications.

     

    3.       Metallic Epoxy Coat

    Once the tinted concrete sealer coat is completely dry, the metallic epoxy coat can be applied. When properly applied to a smooth surface, the Epoxy Countertop Sealer will cover 65-70 sq. ft. Coverage will vary with surface conditions.

    • Pour the desired amount of metallic pigment into the resin and stir in.  Allow metallic pigment and resin mixture to rest for 5 to 10 minutes and stir again for good suspension before adding the hardener.
    • Add hardener to resin and thoroughly mix then pour a ribbon along the width of the countertop.
    • Use a 10 mil notched squeegee to move the material across the surface and evenly distribute the epoxy. You will notice there will be track lines from the notched squeegee.
    • To eliminate track lines from squeegee, wet a 3/8" nap roller in the sealer and give a light back-roll across the squeegee lines.
    • Once the coating evenly covers the surface, freely swirl the roller in a random pattern to create different looks. Denatured alcohol may also be lightly spritzed over the countertop surface to create other unique metallic effects. Be careful not to over apply.
