STEP 1: SURFACE PREP

Surface of the project materials must be level, dry and free from oil, dust and wax. To catch drips, cover surrounding area with waxed paper, newspaper or drop cloth.

DRIPS: Before pouring, protect the sides and edges of the surface area of item being coated with several layers of masking tape. After curing, remove the tape and any drips along with it. Otherwise, drips may be scraped with a putty knife about 30-40 minutes after pouring, or they may be sanded after completely curing.

STEP 2: MEASURE

Pour equal parts each of resin and hardener into separate clean, unwaxed disposable paper or plastic cups or tubs. Mix MUST be a one-to-one ratio (by volume), meaning equal parts resin and hardener. If possible, use a calibrated container.

STEP 3: MIX

FIRST MIX: Pour the carefully measured Hardener(Side B) into the container with measuredResin (Side A) and thoroughly mix forsix minutes. Mix with a stir stick using vigorous,steady revolutions. With proper mixing, some air bubbles occur naturally and can be removed after the pour (see Step 4).It is very important to scrape all sides and the bottom ofthe container with your stirring stick as you mix.

SECOND MIX: Pour the Resin and Hardener from firstmix into a clean mixing container and thoroughly mix for an additional six minutes.

It is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to follow Step 1 and Step 2 as described above. DO NOT allow mixture to sit (or it will harden), overheat and become hot to the touch.

STEP 4: Mixing Time

This step is very important to ensure a complete mix.

1st Cup - Resin into Hardener: 6 minutes
2nd Cup - Resin/Hardener mixture into new clean container: 6 minutes

NOTE: When the resin and hardener are first poured together, the initial mixture appears hazy.

NOTE: If temperature is above 70 °F, working time decreases; lower temperatures increase working time.

STEP 5: POUR

Pour Glaze Coat IMMEDIATELY onto the center of the surface to be covered. Do not allow it to “sit“. You have about 15-20 minutes working time before product begins to harden. Glaze Coat CRAFT is self-leveling. However, if necessary, spread the mixture over the area with a toothpick or small tool. Do not persist in re-spreading the mixture as it sets up, otherwise it will not self-level during the curing action. Do not pour more than 1/8” thick in an application. Mix only as much as you can pour and spread at one time.

STEP 5: COVER PROJECT

Keep dust away for approximately eight hours after pouring. This can be accomplished by having a dust cover ready to use after pour to prevent debris from falling on project. If a second coat is required, cover project and allow to cure approximately 4-5 hours at 70 °F before applying second coat.

STEP 6: CURING

To achieve best results, apply at temperatures between 70 and 80 °F. Both Glaze Coat and the item to be coated should be approximately the same temperature. Allow fresh pours to cure in a warm room (at least 70 °F). Glaze Coat will fully cure in 72 hours. An additional 1 - 2 coats may be applied after 4 - 5 hours. A third coat can be poured after 24 hours but no longer than 48 hours.

If applying in an area where dust or other particles are present, temporary cover or protection may be desired.

STEP 7: CLEANUP

Use acetone or alcohol for tool and work area clean up. Glaze Coat can only be cleaned while it is still in a liquid state. After it has cured, paint remover, heat gun or sanding is required.

CAUTION: Always use plenty of soap and water to wash skin.

Hot objects may leave impressions on a FAMOWOOD Glaze Coat surface. The Glaze Coat is tough, yet flexible to avoid shattering on impact. Impressions usually disappear in a few hours at normal 72-75 °F room temperatures. The warmer the environment, the quicker impressions appear and disappear.

Is FAMOWOOD GLAZE COAT acid-free?
Yes.
