  • Is SUPERCLEAR a good product for an outside bar

      Hey there – great question!

      Our Superclear Bar Top Epoxy is NOT recommended for outdoor use, especially if the application will be in direct sunlight.

      If it will be a project that is kept in the shade or only see a sparing amount of sunlight each day, it should be fine.

      However, again, we don’t typically recommend this product for outdoor use due to the potential for heat and UV light to expedite the yellowing process.
