Refinishing a countertop with metallic epoxy is meant for indoor applications only, and should be considered in situations where eye-catching design is a priority. If you’re refinishing an existing tile or Formica countertop or starting from a wood countertop frame, you will need to Overlay Concrete prior to adhering the epoxy. If you have a poured concrete countertop and are just looking for color, select the Three Step Metallic Epoxy Kit for both the base color and metallic pigment contrast. Finally, if you’ve already poured a countertop with integral color or have acid stained the surface, simply apply metallic epoxy sealer for a shimmering finish!
Most epoxies are not UV stable and tend to discolor over time with regular exposure to direct sunlight. Metallic epoxy really shows off its special characteristics inside the home or office, making for a unique finish to stand out or compliment interior decor.
If Metallic Epoxy is properly applied with a squeegee (included with our kit) at 10 milliliter thickness, the cost of coverage for 35 square feet is approximately $72.00 when using Direct Colors all-in-one Metallic Epoxy Countertop Kit. The exact cost may vary depending on surface conditions.
