Topic tags/keywords: rubio monocoat countertop question

My client wants to use the Rubio monocoat for a breakfast bar style countertop that I made for them from honey mesquite, cracks filled with 2-part epoxy (black). Anyone have experience with this sort of application for this product??
ANY help would be greatly appreciated. Most of my experience has been with wipe-on finishes using poly and oil combinations(Watco danish + oil-based poly is typical).
The client wants a VOC-free flat “hand-rubbed” look. I just want to know that this is a good bet beyond the usual marketing obfuscation/hype.

Sorry, not trying to hijack your thread, but I just opened it to find out what “Rubio monocoat ” is. A quick Google search turned up this

Thanks, now I know.

Oh, and show of hands, how many of YOU OTHERS opened it for the same reason?

Yeah—it was news to me, too. I guess it’s gaining popularity in the “Green, non-VOC” circles (can you say “California”?)
