Epoxy Resin Countertops
Epoxy resin, silica, fillers and a hardener are mixed as a viscous liquid. The liquid is poured into molds and cured in ovens. When removed from the molds the surface of the material in contact with the mold becomes the exposed work surface. The industry standard for the work surface thickness is generally 1″”. Material thinner than 1″” may have a tendency to warp during curing process and over 1″” is very heavy. Colors include black, gray, and beige. Molding allows for various raised edge and integral backsplash designs as well as integral drain grooves and raised ribs. Molding also provides “”dished”" fume hood work surfaces with special accommodations for containment and service routing. Surface is satin to high gloss and non-porous.
