How to Use Clear Pouring Topcoat

Do not shake. Pour over dry, painted surface. Tilt surface for even coverage and drain off excess to prevent pooling. Smooth out sides with a palette knife or brush. Place at a 45° angle and allow to air dry overnight. If a thicker finish is desired, apply a second coat and place surface at the opposite 45° angle. Avoid disturbing surface while topcoat is drying. Application temperature above 50°F. Do not freeze. Water-based. Self-leveling. Non-yellowing. Soap and water clean up.

Tips for Using Clear Pouring Topcoat

  • Pour enough Clear Pouring Topcoat to cover the entire surface at one time. Tap the edge of the surface to help spread the product over the edges.
  • Use a gloved hand or a palette knife to wipe off excess from the edges.
  • If applying a second coat, ensure the first coat is dry. Most applications of Clear Pouring Topcoat will dry within 12-48 hours.
  • Mix Clear Pouring Topcoat with paint to produce a transparent tint. Be sure to mix well to ensure an even coat.
