Getting a highly durable finish to a tabletop is easy with this DIY. Parks Super Glaze is a two-part formula that provides the thickness of 75 coats of regular varnish in an easy-to-use process. The ultra-glossy clear epoxy looks great and can be applied and dried in just a few hours. 

Pour equal amounts of resin (Part A) and activator (Part B) into separate mixing cups, buckets or containers.

Carefully pour the measured resin (Part A) into the container with measured activator (Part B). Mix thoroughly and gently with a stir stick for a minimum of 3 minutes (no more than 5 minutes). Gentle mixing will minimize air bubbles in the mixture and resulting finish. Be sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the container when mixing. 

Pour the Mixed Resin and Activator into a clean container. Be sure to mix thoroughly with a stir stick for an additional 3 minutes. Try to limit air bubbles from entering the mixture. (Do not use a power driven mixing device).

Super Glaze will begin to cure as soon as it is mixed; therefore it is best to pour immediately after mixing. The working time is 20 to 25 minutes at 70°F before the product begins to harden and becomes unworkable. If temperatures are above 70°F the working time will be shorter. Pour the mixture into center of work area then spread with a plastic spreader or rubber squeegee. For best results, spread mixture in a single direction over the entire surface. Do not continue to spread material once it starts to set up, otherwise it will not self-level during the curing process. Recommended thickness for Super Glaze is around 1/16 of an inch, (thickness of a penny). A quart kit will cover  pproximately 6.2 square feet. Allow the sealer to cure for at least 4-5 hours in a dust free area before additional layers of Super Glaze are applied.

TIP: Before finishing porous surfaces, such as oak and walnut, a clear sealer coat is recommended.
