What is Epoxy?
Epoxy counter tops are made up of two different and separate components an epoxy resin and an epoxy hardener. The epoxy resin component is usually light and almost a clear color - for the most part, it's odor free. The epoxy hardeners are usually dark and have an 'ammonia-like' smell.
When the two epoxy components are mixed together in a specific way, they react chemically and link together, forever. After the chemical reaction has taken place, the two epoxy parts (as they are sometimes referred to) form a quite rigid plastic material. The ultimate result is a firm, durable, protective, and beautiful counter top covering and enhancement.
