  • We strongly recommend that you read the instructions on the bottles as well as on the leaflet that is supplied with each set before commencing.
  • It is always best to experiment first with the products before undertaking a major project. Start with a small project, like a drink coaster and master the skills involved BEFORE you undertake a major project, such as a coffee table or a similar large expanse.
  • The product is best used in a decorative capacity where an ultra shine is required. It is not generally suitable for work surfaces or high traffic areas. While it is a very hard, resilient surface, it is not suitable to be used on surfaces where food is prepared or served.
  • If coating ceramic tiles with this product, do not install the tiles on a wall in a shower recess or an area likely to be exposed to steam or direct water spray.
  • A single application is all that is required to achieve a great finish.
  • A plastic sheet underneath your project is better than newspaper. Newsprint will absorb the drips and may leave a stain on the surface of your workbench.
  • Always work in a well-lit area so that you can clearly see the surface you’re applying Glass Coat to.
  • Work in a dust-free area. Lint and microscopic particles of dust will land on the surface as it cures and will leave slight blemishes.
  • Although Glass Coat is virtually odourless, it is important to work in an open and well-ventilated area at all times.
  • It is best to work in a reasonably warm environment where the temperature is above 20°C. If working in the cool of morning, it is a good idea to steep the two bottles in a pan of luke-warm water for a few minutes to improve the pourability of the contents. (Be very careful to ensure the necks of the bottles are fully dry before pouring, since even the smallest amount of water in the mix will spoil it.)
  • If you have mixed too little Glass Coat to cover the surface, and realise this immediately after pouring onto your project, simply mix up another batch and pour on. As long as you work within the first 20 minutes or so, you can add gloss as required.
