What to Consider When Choosing Epoxy for Table Tops

When choosing the best resin for table tops, there are several factors to consider:

  • UV resistance: All epoxy resins will yellow over time, but some brands add UV protection to their formula to slow down the yellowing process.
  • Food safety: If you're making a kitchen table top or other food preparation surface, you'll want to choose an epoxy that's food safe once cured².
  • Ease of use: Some epoxies are easier to work with than others. Consider the mixing formula and whether the epoxy comes with a hardener².
  • Odor: Some epoxies have a strong odor when working with them, so you may want to choose a brand that's low-odor or odor-free.
  • Heat resistance: If your tabletop will be exposed to heat, you'll want to choose an epoxy that's heat resistant.
