EcoPoxy UV Poxy Kit
UVPoxy is a high performance epoxy also used for bar tops and table tops which produces a high build crystal clear durable finish that resists yellowing, fading or cracking over time. UVPoxy can endure extremely high traffic areas such as experienced by night clubs and restaurants.
UVPoxy is perfect for embedding mementos such as coins, photos or other memorabilia, it is also commonly used for see through encapsulation, the making of jewelry and much more. UVPoxy will self-level and can easily be built up to a depth of 1/4" thick layers.
UVPoxy is specifically formulated to resist yellowing caused by sunlight and other ultra violet light sources and to resist scratching, water, and alcohol to provide a long lasting maintenance free protection for your surface.

EcoPoxy UV Poxy Product Instructions:
UV Poxy is a 100% solids epoxy adhesive that can be used for electrical encapsulation to enhance the performance of potted electronic devices and extend life cycles with high impact resistance. It can be spread easily in thin films that is transparent after curing and provides good mechanical and electrical properties. UV Poxy is suitable for applications ranging from electrical potting to jewelry assembly and composite parts.
UV Poxy is a high performance epoxy also used for bar tops and table tops which produces a high build crystal clear durable finish that will never yellow, fade, or crack over time. UV Poxy is perfect for embedding mementos such as coins, photos or other memorabilia, it is also commonly used for see through encapsulation, the making of jewelry and much more. UV Poxy has an easy to use 1 to 1 by volume mix ratio, wets out substrates well, maintains its integrity over sharp corners, it has excellent air release qualities, and a relatively fast set time which may be accelerated by mild heat to 160F
Working Conditions: For best results UV Poxy must be used at temperatures from 70-80 degrees F. The room which you are working in should be clean, dry, dust and insect free. Settling dust can often cause blemishes on the glossy surface.
Mix Ratio: 1:1 by volume
Work Time: 20 minutes depending on ambient temperature
Cure Time: 48 hours depending on ambient temperature, humidity and thickness.
Set to touch: 4-8 hours
Minimum Recoat Time: 4-8 hours
Maximum Recoat Time: 24 hours
Clean Up: De Natured Alcohol
Recommended Storage: 55 degrees F. through 85 degrees F. with tightly sealed lids.
Application: UV Poxy should be applied in two stages. The first stage is referred to as the seal coat. The seal coat is brushed on in a thin layer and is used to seal any pores in the surface and prevents air bubbles from forming in the following flood coats. This stage is followed by the flood coat, which will flow and self-level, foam brushes or squeegees can be used to help spread UV Poxy. Flood coats are applied in 1/8" layers at a time, as many as desired can be applied, however one to three coats is average for most table or bar coatings.
Minimum Recoat Time: This is the amount of time after the epoxy is applied in a thin film that it will arrive at a gel state, still wet, but no longer a liquid. To recoat without sanding between coats you must reapply after this point but before the drying time has completed. Recoating can usually be done within 4 to 8 hours. If re-coated within this time period no sanding is necessary between layers.
Imbedding Pictures: Objects, such as pictures, maps etc. can be imbedded in UV Poxy during the pours. Most photo quality paper does not require any special preparation however sometimes thin paper objects must first be sealed. Use a solution of 4 parts white glue and 1 part water. This will prevent thin paper objects from becoming translucent, this may be done with a brush. Two coats of sealer is advised. Wait 4-8 hours before pouring UV Poxy.
Imbedding Solid Objects: (wood, rocks, shells, etc.) All porous materials should first have a seal coat of UV Poxy applied. This will prevent air bubbles from occurring in subsequent flood coats. Usually the objects can be set in place before sealing.
