Countertop Refinishing



Without even touching the walls or replacing the appliances, a skilled countertop refinishing job can make a kitchen seem larger, brighter and more comfortable. Choose from solid color options, or take advantage of our different multicolor, metallic, and concrete look finishes that give the look, feel, and durability of real stone and concrete at a fraction of the cost.

Preparation

Surface Wash Cleaner
Cleaning the surface using Surface Wash solvent cleaner removes build up and residual oils from the substrate, providing a fresh surface to begin the refinishing process.

Sanding
Sanding using 180-220 grit sandpaper will scuff the surface and promote adhesion.

Surface Wash
After sanding, using Surface Wash solvent cleaner removes dust and any residual oils on the surface, providing a clean surface for refinishing.

Repair
Once the surface is sanded and cleaned, repair imperfections and seams as necessary using ProFil™ Compound or
Quick-Set 5 Epoxy.

QuickPrep 2000™ Bonding Agent Wipe On Primer
QuickPrep 2000 bonding agent wipe on primer provides optimum adhesion and will significantly extend the lifespan of the coating by taking this additional adhesive step.


Primer

UltraGrip 4000 High-Build Primer System or UltraGrip Lo 4300 Primer System
UltraGrip 4000 is a high-build, extremely durable primer system that will decrease the amount of time spent repairing the surface prior to refinishing by filling texture from wood grain or minor scratches and imperfections. Use the low odor, VOC compliant UltraGrip Lo 4300 if you are concerned about odor or if you are in an area with strict VOC regulations.


Optional Stone Finish

StoneFlecks™ Ultra
Available in a wide range of colors, StoneFlecks Ultra provides a natural stone look to any surface. The proprietary Ultra formula lays virtually flat, eliminating the need to sand texture before topcoating and cures fast, allowing clearcoat to be applied in as little as 30 minutes.


Optional Enhancements:

Dream Metallics™ Collection
A unique, trendy, and inspirational range of metallic accents that can be added to any of our StoneFlecks™ Ultra colors.

Dynamic Fleck Enhancer (DFE)
Use with StoneFlecks Ultra finish to enhance the fleck particle size in the final coat, creating a more natural, softer stone effect.


Topcoat

After applying StoneFlecks Ultra, it is important to seal the finish with a clearcoat. This makes the surface more durable, more waterproof and will add the desired gloss level.
