UV Resistant Coating Epoxy

UVPoxy has been formulated with a simple 1:1 mix ratio and is designed for tabletops, wood finishing, and fluid art. It is a high-performance, two-component, water-clear epoxy system that resists yellowing caused by the sun and other UV sources.

Use UVPoxy by itself for a water-clear finish or add our Liquid, Metallic, or Glitter pigments to create custom colors and effects. It is self-leveling and can quickly be built up in 3.2 mm (1/8") layers. 

With our ever-growing line of EcoPoxy pigments and accessories, we can support you with everything you need for your epoxy projects.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between UVPoxy and FlowCast®? What do I need to keep in mind when using UVPoxy?

UVPoxy is a coating resin, while FlowCast is formulated to be used for large castings. Like FlowCast, UVPoxy cures to a high gloss water clear finish. However, UVPoxy is a much more reactive formulation than FlowCast. The reactivity is optimized to allow it to cure quickly when applied as a thin coating. UVPoxy is not meant for small castings and does not have optimized air release.

What kind of projects can I use UVPoxy for?

UVPoxy can be used as a clear coating or be pigmented and used to create fluid art using techniques such as:

  • Dirty Pour
  • Beach Scenes
  • Marbling
  • Florals
  • Swipes
  • Dutch Pour
Can I apply UVPoxy in multiple layers?

Yes, UVPoxy can be applied in multiple layers. Additional layers should be poured when the previous layer has reached set to touch. To prepare the epoxy surface for the next layer, scuff the surface with 220 grit sandpaper. Remove excess dust and debris, then wipe clean with denatured or isopropyl alcohol. You can then pour the next layer.

Can I apply a coating thicker than 3.2mm (1/8”)?

We do not recommend attempting to apply UVPoxy coatings greater than 3.2mm (1/8”). Thicker applications will cure too quickly to allow air bubbles to rise to the surface. To achieve a thicker coating, applying multiple layers of UVPoxy is recommended.

Do I need a seal coat for UVPoxy? What product do you recommend?

We recommend seal coating any surfaces that will be coated with UVPoxy. Once cured, seal coats help prevent air and moisture from migrating out of substrate materials, which can cause bubbles. UVPoxy is the preferred system for seal coats.

Will my UVPoxy project yellow over time?

All epoxies yellow over time. To combat this, we formulated UVPoxy with UV stabilizers. These additives absorb UV light and prevent damage to the resin. Eventually, the stabilizers will lose their effectiveness. Adding metallic or liquid pigments to UVPoxy will help it resist yellowing better than if it is left transparent. Completed projects should not be kept outdoors.

Can I use a Power Mixer to mix UVPoxy?

Using a power mixer is not advised. UVPoxy should be mixed by hand. Mix with a stir stick and stir deliberately, but do not whip the resin. Doing so introduces excess air into the mixed resin, which makes it difficult to achieve a bubble-free final project.

How do I get a perfectly flat UVPoxy coating on top of a wood surface?

In order to obtain a perfectly flat and level epoxy coating, the surface under the coating also must be flat and level. Natural features in wood surfaces, such as knots, cracks, and areas with larger pores, can absorb more resin than surrounding areas. This results in indentations and low spots. If your work surface has any of these features, 2-3 seal coats may be required to fully seal the surface. Apply the first seal coat, sand with 220 grit sandpaper, and wipe down. Examine the surface carefully to confirm that all voids have been filled and the surface is flat. If this surface is not smooth, seal coat and sand again, repeating as many times as required until the surface is perfectly flat and level. Then, continue to the flood coat.

Mixing & Application Instructions

Mixing

In a clean, dry container combine (by volume) 1 part resin with 1 part hardener and mix thoroughly for 2-3 minutes. Add Liquid, Metallic, or Glitter pigments as desired and mix until evenly dispersed.

Application

Working area should be clean, dry, and free of dust. Settling dust can cause blemishes on the glossy surface. Pour UVPoxy onto the prepared surface and spread evenly. Use of a V-notched spreader is recommended to achieve a uniform finish at the desired thickness. A light pass with a torch can help release bubbles at, or near, the surface. UVPoxy can be applied up to 3.2mm thick (1/8”) per coat, using as many layers as needed to achieve the desired thickness. For best adhesion between layers, wait until the first layer is tacky to touch to apply another layer. If the first layer is already fully set to touch, sand with 220 grit sandpaper and wipe down before applying another layer. Recommended for indoor applications only.

Premium UVPoxy Features

Perfect for Coating

With a maximum thickness of ⅛”, UVPoxy is perfect for use as a self-leveling, high-build finish on epoxy woodworking and art projects.

Resists Yellowing

UVPoxy is specially formulated to resist yellowing caused by sunlight and other ultraviolet light sources. While UVPoxy has been formulated to resist yellowing, it is not recommended for permanent outdoor applications.

Water Clear

UVPoxy cures to a water-clear, high-gloss finish that is compatible with many substrates. UVPoxy will self-level to approximately 1/16” if the resin is allowed to run over the edges of the workpiece.

Create Beautiful Designs

UVPoxy allows woodworkers and artists to create pieces that are as beautiful as they are functional. Add Liquid Color Pigments, Metallic Color Pigments, and Polyester Color Glitters to achieve stunning results.
