Topic tags/keywords: bar top bartop acrylic coating resin

Fellow LJs,

I’m building tables and need to find a company to top off my tables with a hard, clear bartop coating like you see, well, IN BARS. I’d do it myself but, it’s very messy and the tables are the shape of Texas or any shape the person wants. I live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and have searched under various titles. I just can’t find what I am looking for. I’m about to ask a local bar owner who built his bar.

Thanks in advance for any info. If you can’t help, well, um, um, I’ll get back to you on this!

I believe the material your looking for is referred to as self levelling epoxy, there has been some discussion about it here on LJs, after a quick search I found this post:

I hope the responses are helpful.

I remember a product from years ago they used for this purpose. I think it was marketed as “Pour Floor” or something like that. It had a powerful vehicle – I should have had a vapor mask on, but I didn’t – I was young then and immortal. I suppose I sacrificed some number of brain cells to those jobs. It made a very durable and gin clear waterproof surface.
