Can I do this myself? The Kit contains everything you need for fantastic results. Our included sprayer assures that you will have a superb outcome and your surfaces will look brand new. ArmorGarage has sold tens of thousands of Bath Epoxy kits over the years, and now offers it to you in an easy-to-use kit, with complete Instructions in both English and Spanish translations. It's easy to apply, and NO special skills or equipment are required.
What does the kit include? Each kit is complete with the special 2 part epoxy. It's pre-measured, just pour one can into the other! Kits also include the special cleaning pad and cleanser, special application sprayer & brush, rubber gloves and mixing stick. We also now include a special 2" foam roller handle with pad and mini-tray for easier application to vertical and larger surfaces.
How long will it take me to do? It takes about 45 minutes to prep a standard tub, and maybe an hour to properly apply the first coat. Then 4-5 hours of drying time and then a second coat.
How long does it take to dry? After applying the 2nd coat, you need to not use any areas that get wet for three days. Walls and floors dry to touch are ready for use in about 24 hours.
How much do I need? Each Single kit will do about 75 square feet (a standard tub, shower, or surround).
The Double Kit comes with 2 complete Refinishing Kits, additional spray cartridges (for easy application to vertical surfaces), plus a free caulk removal tool and DAP Brand caulk tube (since we recommend removing the old caulk, refinishing, and then re-apply new caulk).
The triple kit comes with three full kits plus additional spray cartridges and brushes.
What about the grout lines? Normally you would paint over the grout lines, and since the epoxy is white, it really looks nice. Of course if you want to remove your grout, then coat, and reapply the grout that can also be done.
Can I tint the epoxy? Yes, you can add up to one half ounce of ®universal type tints to make the epoxy into lighter and pastel colors. Since the epoxy is bright white, it cannot be made into dark colors since the base is white.
How long will it last? ArmorGarage is the Nation's largest maker and seller of industrial epoxy floor kits. We've taken our extensive knowledge of epoxies and applied it into the making of the Bathroom epoxy kit. Your Bathroom epoxy will last many, many years. Life span is based on usage and care. Use a non-abrasive cleaner and no bleach to assure a very long life. You can also always re-coat the epoxy in the future if you needed to thus ensuring even a longer life to your bathroom. Unlike other brands that peel or chip off in a few years and are not recoatable.
What kinds of surfaces can I use this on? The Bathroom Epoxy Kit can be used on virtually any surface such as porcelain, tile, ceramic, fiberglass, acrylic, laminate and more. Just follow the prep instructions included in the kit.
Does it have harmful fumes or odors? It has fumes similar to an oil based type of paint. Adequate ventilation must be used including fans or windows, and all state, federal and local regulations should be followed. Normally any odor disappears in 1-2 days. An inexpensive organic vapor type respirator available at any home center or paint store can be used if desired.
Can it be sprayed? Yes, you can spray the epoxy through a standard sprayer or the included spray kit. You may have to thin it 5%-10% with xylene to achieve proper results. Our included instructions give spraying information.
What is the warranty? We warranty the epoxy for 1 year from date of purchase. You can expect the epoxy to last many many years with proper care.
