FR1 System – Crystal Clear Epoxy Resin for bars and tables. (2 quarts kit)
FR1 System Crystal Clear Epoxy resin by FIBERS & RESINS. Specially formulated for bars and tables. (2 quart kit | Includes: 1 quart resin and 1 quart hardener – Total ounces = 64 ounces | Total liters = 1.89).
The FR1 System is a Crystal Clear Epoxy Resin coating that mixes at a 1 to 1 ratio by volume. The FR1 System cures to a clear, high build, glass-like finish that resists scratching, yellowing and will not distort with age. This product is widely used on bar counters, tabletops, pennies tables, bottle cap tables, river tables, and art pieces. It protects and finishes the piece. It will not blush or sweat out under high humidity conditions. Although the FR1 System will resist yellowing better than other epoxies it is NOT 100% UV resistant. Due to this fact, continuous outdoor UV exposure over months or years will cause the finish to gradually change color. It can also lose its gloss and possibly warp. We recommend it for indoor use only, with no exposure to UV lights or indirect sunlight.
EASY to USE
- Measure equal parts of resin and hardener.
- Carefully stir without lifting the stick and do not whip.
- Pour over on a leveled surface.
- Burst bubbles.
- Let it cure.
Calculating how much FR1 Crystal Clear Epoxy System should you buy will depend on the size of your project. We don’t want you to spend on buying quantities that you won’t use. So to make it easy for you, we’ve created a calculator that will help you determine how much product you’ll need. Working on small projects most of the time is easier when dealing with inch measurements. The “Small Project Calculator” is the perfect way to calculate how much of the product you will need. On the other hand, dealing with large projects like bartops, the “Large Project Calculator” is perfect for measurements in feet.
To avoid little bubbles when the flood coat is applied, wood needs to be sealed. The seal coat is a thin brushed on layer that is used for this purpose. For most applications, the wood surface should be sanded first, cleaned, and dust-free before applying the seal coat. Keep in mind that very porous woods, such as barn wood, may require several seal coats. For this purpose, you may be better off using an oil-based polyurethane, it’s not as easily absorbed as the epoxy. If you use polyurethane, please wait 48 hours before you pour your first flood coat of epoxy resin.
The flood coat is poured and self-levels at approximately 1/8″ thickness. If depths thicker than 1/8″ are desired, multiple coats are necessary. However, keep in mind that after 1/2″ thickness, the epoxy will have a slight amber color to it. Also, you must wait at least 4 hours between each epoxy seal coat and each additional flood coat. You want the surface to still be tacky when you apply each coat. If the seal or flood coat dried before you could apply your additional coat or if you’re using stains, please read our Product FAQs for further guidelines.
Note: Not all surfaces require a seal coat. If you’re not sure, feel free to ask us by e-mail, call us or text us or fax us at 561-313-5511.
