Liquid Polymer Glass Sealer is a product Resin Wood Tables NZ has modified and taken to a whole new level for sealing timber. This solvent-based resin compound is the only solvent-based resin we use in our resin room to achieve a very deep penetration into the fibers of the wood. When you are thinking about the whole piece you are crafting, the worst possible scenario is coming to the final pours or even to the mid-level pours of epoxy resin finding that you still have air escaping from the timber causing unsightly bubbles. Bubbles in the mid and final layers will ruin the look of your crafted piece.
Best Practices Making Epoxy Resin Tables
Once you have selected your piece of timber cut it to the approximate size you want it to be then you can leave it in a shaded area to do it’s little dance, as you have released the tight pressures and the fibers are free to move. I would only do this if my timber was more than thick enough for another planning to get it down, to the desired thickness. In saying that 99% of the time once I have planed my timber to the thickness I want and have cut it to a rough size I proceed to sand and resin seal the timber.
What grit should I sand the timber to?
Generally, I never sand more than 180 grit myself as sanding more than this with finer grits closes up the pores in the timber that will stop the Epoxy Resin Sealer from penetrating deep into the wood.
Applying the Liquid Polymer Glass Sealer
When you come to applying the Liquid Polymer Glass Sealer / resin that is a one-to-one ratio mix by volume you should calculate the volume of resin you require based on a 1mm thickness for coverage, multiplied by both sides. Use the 2-bucket method when mixing your resins as we do when mixing all types of e poxy. It is important that you seal both sides at the same time with very thin coats. Do NOT try to get thick coverage, as this is not how this Liquid Polymer Glass Sealer is designed to work. Nice and thin applications that may require three or more coats to achieve a light glassy look all over the timber on both sides. Please ensure you have done this on the ends of the slab of wood as well.
Why do I have to do both sides at once?
It is important that you do both sides and the ends of the slab of timber with the Resinzwood resin sealer, so you have an even drying scenario. If you were to seal one side and not the other, then the unsealed side would be drying or sucking in moisture faster than the other side causing the timber to bend, warp, cack or all these scenarios at once.
