A Comprehensive and Up-to-Date Guide for 2024

Hello, fellow epoxy enthusiasts! Today, we’re diving into the world of bar top epoxies.

Stick with us as we navigate through the multitude, focusing on quality, authenticity, and many other factors to consider when choosing your bar top epoxy.

With so many choices, it can get confusing. From those available at your local hardware store to the many options online, the quest for the best bar top epoxy can get overwhelming.

Every brand out there promises durability and a pristine finish, but how do you distinguish genuine quality from BS?

(BS meaning – “boring stuff” by the way..😅)

Key Aspects to Consider

1. Authentic User Reviews

User reviews serve as firsthand accounts of product performance and customer satisfaction.

Authentic, detailed reviews, especially those featuring images and updates on long-term use, can provide valuable insights into the product’s real-world application, durability, and ease of use.

Our bar top epoxy has over 7,000 reviews on Amazon by verified purchasers and counting!

2. Clear and Detailed Specifications

A reliable product should have transparent, comprehensive specifications. This involves clarity about the product’s properties (e.g., UV resistance, viscosity, maximum pour depth), usage guidelines, and limitations.

Detailed specifications guide the user in selecting a product that precisely fits their project requirements and applying it effectively to achieve desired results.

3. Brand Reputation and History

The reputation and history of a brand often reveal a pattern of product quality and customer satisfaction.

A brand that has successfully catered to users over time, consistently delivering high-quality products, is likely to offer a more reliable bar top epoxy.

We are proud to say that although our branding and look has changed over the past 60 years, all of our Superclear Epoxy Systems have been manufactured here in Saint Petersburg, FL by Fiberglass Coatings!

4. Customer Support Prowess

Effective customer support demonstrates a brand’s commitment to their user’s post-purchase. It’s crucial, especially for DIY enthusiasts who might have questions or encounter issues during application.

A brand with accessible, supportive, and knowledgeable customer service can assist you through challenges, ensuring your project doesn’t hit unnecessary roadblocks.

That being said, shoot us an email or give us a call anytime Monday-Friday between the hours of 8am-5pm: (888) 849-0588. We’d love to help!

5. UV Resistance and Clarity

UV resistance is vital in maintaining the epoxy’s clarity and preventing yellowing over time, especially in spaces exposed to sunlight.

Clarity ensures that the underlying materials (like wood grain or embedded objects) are distinctly visible, showcasing the depth and richness of the design.

Superclear Table Top Epoxy can be poured as thin as a coating or up to .25” thick per pour.

6. Ease of Application

Whether you’re a seasoned professional or a DIY beginner, an epoxy that is easy to mix, pour, and cure can make the application process smooth and rewarding.

It should offer a reasonable working time, straightforward mixing ratios, and a forgiving application process that results in a flawless, bubble-free finish even without specialized tools or expertise.
