How to deal with scratches in the cured epoxy



A 3M product called “Finesse-it 2” can be used to remove scratches and leave a high-gloss.

The speed of which is done is crucial. Too high speed to polish and would cause the epoxy to smear. Too low speed can cause the epoxy to become cloudy. We suggest testing this first.

Polishing is something that takes skill and experience to achieve excellent results. Please test out a small area first.

TIP: For the most extended life, this product must have coasters/ placemats used at all times when putting extremely hot items on it. The first couple months are the most critical as the epoxy is about 99.5% cured but has not developed its FULL scratch and heat resistance. It cannot be treated like granite or tile in regards to heat. The peak resistance after 100% curing in a couple of months is about 135 degrees. Until epoxy is 100% cured, or else hot plates or cups might leave a slight imprint on the surface. Never put hot items directly onto the epoxy.
