WHAT IS THE NEW FINISH?
The finish or top coat that we apply, is called an aliphatic acrylic polyurethane. This is a two-part urethane that is the highest grade industrial coating available. It scratches about the same as your existing laminate countertops and is significantly more impact and temp resistant, then granite or marble.
The advantages of this epoxy base coat, Aliphatic Acrylic Urethane top coat process, over our competitors and other products is:
- The top coating is an aliphatic. (This means that it a high level of resistance, to the chemicals, that you will use to clean it and is very important for your countertops.)
- The base coat is an epoxy type coating. Epoxy coatings strength is in adhesion, but will "yellow" over time. That is why we take advantage of its strengths and cover over it with our solid or Multi-Color urethane.
- Impact resistant.
- It handles the temperature changes in your countertop. No worries about a Crock-Pot heating up a small area, possibly causing a crack from the heat.
