Default Parks super Glaze bar top epoxy

This stuff is sold at Home Depot. Anyone have any experience with it? Pros/Cons?

Parks Super Glaze

Super Glaze Pour-On Finish and Preservative is an ultra-thick, high gloss, crystal clear epoxy that provides maximum durability. It is ideal as a water proof finish for table and bar tops. Also it is great for crafts and refinishing furniture and can be used over almost any interior surface; from rough and unfinished to stained, painted, or smooth surfaces. It can finish bar tops, table tops, game boards, clocks, plaques, and ceramics. Also it preserves items by encasing them in Super Glaze – pictures, fabric, coins, shells, etc. can be embedded with two applications of Super Glaze. A quart covers 6.4 square feet.

Hmmm, I may have to check this out(I'm planning on bottle capping my bar top) how much does a quart run and is it available in gallon sizes?

a quart runs $23. I think i may have found a better option for value at the following site:
http://www.shopmaninc.com/kk121.html

I was going to use the home depot stuff because i planned on being ready this weekend for that part of my project. I recieved my chicago bar rail molding from Baird Brothers in the mail today and it has some minor damage. I just sent them an email, and awaiting response for remedial action. Now, i may order the epoxy from that site because it may get pushed back until next weekend (hopefully at the latest).

JTD - I got my rail from Baird Bros as well. Sorry to hear it was damaged.

Menards sells a good epoxy product called "Envirotech". I used it on my bartop.

I just got a response from Baird Bros, they are going to ship out replacements today.

So it looks as though i am going to try the Klear Kote, as i have time to wait now.
looks like next weekend.

Thanks for the responses.

Joe

I just got my replacements from baird bros. Good quality stuff. Although it is what i expected to recieve first, they sent out replacements right away. Good business in my book. I decided to go with the klear kote, should get that on friday. hopefully have it poured by sunday. Once complete i will post a ton of pics!

Cheers!

I'm a woodworker and coinsedentally I'm building some tables for a local restaraunt and they've asked me to find an affordable alternative to Mirror Coat and I'm using Klear Kote. I can tell you how my test performs in a commercial setting in about two weeks. I've used mirror coat before and one trick is to gently heat the poured surface with a torch to get out air bubbles, I'm assuming this product will react similarly.

We used this stuff to build our bartop. It spreads really really thick. Mix it for way longer than it says because we had to scrape it off and reapply it. Ended up paying WAY too much than we should have to do the top. It's great, just wish it wasn't so damn expensive
