Turn ordinary things into extraordinary conversation pieces
TotalBoat ThickSet Clear Casting Epoxy Resin is great for custom works of art on bar tops, counter tops, table tops, kitchen islands, kitchen counters, bistro tables, paperweights, lamp bases, chess sets, sculptures, jewelry—whatever you like!
Just measure, mix, and pour!
TotalBoat ThickSet makes it easy to get great results—even if you’ve never used epoxy before. Just measure carefully, stir thoroughly, and pour slowly onto your prepared surface or into your prepared mold. The key is step pouring with multiple layers. This means that when the previous layer has cooled but is soft enough to indent with your fingernail, pour the next layer directly on top.
- Application temperature: 65°F-80°F. Warm conditions are critical for success.
- **IMPORTANT! Environmental conditions are extremely important to the quality of the cure, and to achieving the best clarity and surface finish. Depending on the overall mass of epoxy being poured at a single time, the depth that it is poured, and the ambient temperature, excessive heat may build up from the reaction, causing potential yellowing, cracks, or other shrinkage. Helping to dissipate the heat may help promote the best results. For the epoxy to cure fully, the ambient temperature must be between 65°F and 80°F. When pouring for larger projects, such as slabs or tables, do not exceed a pour depth of ½” to 1″ to prevent yellowing or
excessive heat from the cure.
- For your safety, work in a well-ventilated area. Wear gloves, eye protection, and clothing protection.
- Mix ratio by volume: 3 parts resin to 1 part hardener
- Seal coat application: Brush. When applying to wood or porous surfaces, be sure to apply a very thin skim coat of epoxy to seal the surface, and allow it to cure before applying more epoxy.
- Maximum pour depth per layer (flood coat application): 1/2″ for river pours, slab pours; 1″ for smaller castings using less than 16 oz. of epoxy. Pour on and spread with an epoxy spreader.
- Working time @ 77°F: 10-30 minutes, depending on mixing mass, material temperature, ambient temperature, mixing time, mixing speed, application speed, & casting or coating thickness
- Gel time @ 77°F: 5.5 hours
- Cured color: Clear
- Volumetric yield: 1.5 sq ft (at 1" thickness) per gallon of mixed product
- UV-resistant formula is not intended for outdoor applications with prolonged sunlight exposure.
- Do not place items hotter than 125°F on the cured surface.

Should I use TotalBoat ThickSet or ThickSet Fathom epoxy for my project – what’s the difference?
TotalBoat ThickSet and ThickSet Fathom epoxies are both crystal clear resin systems that can be poured deeper than traditional epoxy, and both are ideal for castings, river tables, and slab pours, but the main question is – how deep do you want to go? If it’s really deep, you want ThickSet Fathom because you can pour it in thicker single layers than ThickSet. The table below contains more information to help you decide which ThickSet formula is right for your project.
|Best Used For||Smaller scale castings and pours; ideal for castings using less than 16 fl. oz. per pour||Larger scale projects and castings using 1/2 to 1 gallon of mixed epoxy|
|Advantages||Shorter demold time, shorter recoat time||Deepest pour depth per layer, longer working time, fewer pours, easier mix ratio|
|Max Pour Depth Per Layer||1″ for smaller castings using less than 16 oz. of epoxy; 1/2″ for river tables, slab pours, live edge tables||3″ for larger castings, and up to 2″ deep for river tables, slab pours, and live edge tables|
|Working Time||10-30 minutes||2-4 hours|
|Demold Time||12-24 hours||48-72+ hours|
|Full Cure Time||5-7 days||5-10 days|
|Mix Ratio by Volume||3:1||2:1|
A Gorgeous Epoxy River Top Kitchen Island Made from Reclaimed Lumber
Talented TotalBoat Ambassador Jonny Lambert, of Jonny Builds fame, uses our deep pour epoxy resin to build a unique epoxy river top kitchen island. He used reclaimed lumber live-edge walnut slab cut-offs for the island top, and swirled black and white pearl pigments into our TotalBoat ThickSet Epoxy to create the ‘river’. Watch the wizard at work as he takes wood which would otherwise have ended up in the dumpster and turns it into a functional work of art.
A One-of-a-Kind, Backlit Epoxy Coffee ‘River’ Table Made from Scrap Walnut Slabs
Take a look at this detailed and entertaining epoxy river table build by TotalBoat Ambassador Caleb Harris, of YCMT2 (You Can Make This Too) as he uses our TotalBoat ThickSet Liquid Glass Deep Pour Epoxy, mica powder pigments, walnut slabs, and LED strips to create a custom coffee table. Caleb used slabs of walnut he had left over from other projects. For the ‘river’ he stirred blue and gray pigments into our TotalBoat ThickSet Clear Casting Epoxy. For the finish, he used TotalBoat Halcyon water-based varnish to preserve and protect the surface. As Caleb creates this one-of-a-kind coffee table, he shows you how he avoids shimming wonky slabs, how he keeps resin from sticking to the mold, and all the details that went into this cool build. He even provides a link to his four helpful ways to estimate how much epoxy to pour. A must-see for anyone planning a river table build!
Turning an Epoxy Resin and Burl File Handle
Have you made new handles for old tools? Ever cast one with epoxy resin? Old tools sometimes need some upgrading, and it’s usually where the handle has been well worn from years of use. In this TotalBoat video, Andrew fashions a new file handle from burl and tinted epoxy resin. He casts the burl in a mold filled with TotalBoat ThickSet Epoxy, cures it in a pressure pot to prevent bubbles, then turns the handle on a lathe. A little TotalBoat TotalBuff and TotalBoat TotalShine bring this piece to a beautiful shine and it’s back to work for this file that has a showpiece of a new handle.
Frequently Asked Questions
What applications is TotalBoat Thickset Epoxy most appropriate for?
ThickSet Epoxy is ideal for deep pour casting and molding projects. It also creates a deep, clear finish on bar tops, tabletops, and countertops embedded with your favorite objects and photos. Apply to properly prepared wood, metal, stone, ceramic, and concrete surfaces.
Should I Use TotalBoat ThickSet or TableTop Epoxy?
Both of these epoxies give you beautiful results for crystal-clear, liquid glass like coating, casting, embedding, or encapsulating projects. However, TotalBoat TableTop Epoxy is more of a ‘coating’ epoxy, and TotalBoat ThickSet is more of a ‘casting’ epoxy designed for deep pours.
ThickSet requires fewer pours to achieve a final thickness of 1/2″ and gives a longer working time, while Table Top epoxy resin has a faster cure time for coating and is meant for shallow-depth embedding projects.
Can I thin ThickSet Deep Pour Epoxy?
No, you should not thin epoxy, as this will negatively affect cure and characteristics.
Does ThickSet dry clear?
Yes, it dries to a liquid glass-like clear finish. However, it can be tinted with epoxy-safe coloring agents, like Mica Powder, if desired.
Is this clear casting resin food safe?
Yes. The cured epoxy surface is BPA-free, making it safer for objects coming into contact with food.
What else should I know before using this deep pour epoxy?
Environmental conditions are important to the quality of the cure, and to achieve the best clarity and surface finish. For the epoxy to cure fully, the ambient temperature must be between 65°F and 80°F. When pouring for larger projects, such as slabs or tables, do not exceed a pour depth of ½” to 1″ to prevent yellowing or excessive heat from the cure. Step pouring with multiple layers will achieve the best results.
This resin is not designed for continuous UV exposure. If the item will be used outdoors, the cured surface must be coated with a UV-resistant finish (like clear varnish) to prevent yellowing and fogging.
Detailed instructions and information on Thickset Deep Pour Epoxy Resin can be found here.
Once mixed, how long is the working time?
The working time for ThickSet Epoxy is 10-30 minutes at 77°F, depending on mixing mass, material temperature, ambient temperature, mixing time, mixing speed, application speed, and casting or coating thickness.
How long does it take to cure?
The tack-free time is 4-8 hours for 1/2″ – 1″ pours at 77°F, and it will be fully cured after 5-7 days at 77°F.
Can I place hot items on it once the clear casting epoxy is cured? How heat resistant is it?
We recommend you avoid placing items hotter than 125°F on the cured surface. This is common to most room temperature-cured epoxy systems.
What is the coverage of ThickSet epoxy?
Coverage depends on the desired thickness. The volumetric yield is 1.5 sq ft (at 1″ thickness) per gallon of mixed product. If you aren’t sure how much ThickSet Epoxy you need, try our simple epoxy calculator to determine how much resin your project will require!
What is the shelf life of ThickSet, once opened?
If stored in proper conditions, resin & hardener should last to 6 months to 1 year after opening. Store at 60-90°F, in a dry place. Ensure containers are thoroughly sealed directly after use. Store products on a raised surface off the floor during cold weather, and avoid storing near outside walls or doors
