Super Glaze gives countertops a lustrous, gleaming finish and enhanced protection. Manufactured by the Parks Corp., Super Glaze is a glossy, epoxy-based coating that will adhere to almost any countertop material, including concrete, stone, laminate and wood. Use Super Glaze to refinish old countertops that have grown dull over years of use or to finish new countertops where a protective seal is needed. Finish countertops with Super Glaze on a day where temperatures are approximately 75 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit to allow maximum working time.
Things You'll Need
- 220-grit sandpaper (optional)
- Rubbing alcohol
- Painter's tape
- Masking paper
- Penetrating sealer (optional)
- Disposable containers
- Plastic stir stick
- Plastic spreader
Wipe down a previously existing countertop with a damp sponge to remove any dirt or grime.
Lightly sand with 220-grit sandpaper if the countertop is plastic or wood. After sanding, decontaminate the countertop by cleaning it with a rag dampened with rubbing alcohol.
Mask and protect any surrounding surfaces with painter’s tape and masking paper.
Measure out equal parts Super Glaze resin and Super Glaze activator in separate clean, disposable containers.
Pour the resin into the activator. Stir with a stir stick for two minutes. Pour the combined resin and activator into a separate, clean container and mix for two more minutes.
Pour the Super Glaze mixture onto the countertop promptly after mixing. Spread the glaze evenly across the entire surface with a plastic spreader. Spread all in the same direction to a thickness of approximately a sixteenth of an inch. Blow lightly to pop any surface bubbles that appear. Stop working the glaze within 20 to 25 minutes of pouring.
Allow the glaze to cure for the amount of time specified on the container before using the countertop. If necessary, add a second coat of glaze after the first coat has cured.
Tips & Warnings
- Paint the countertop with the appropriate penetrating sealer if the countertop is new and the material is porous, such as wood or concrete. Allow the sealer to fully dry.
