Epoxy River table Sealing Live Edge?
Epoxy River table Sealing Live Edge. Sealing the “Live Edge” using a Fast-Setting Sealer resin is a great way to avoid getting air/humidity coming out of the wood while the epoxy is curing. Epoxy also known as “Thermoset” (meaning the curing is induced by heat) will open up the wood fibers while curing and might release air/humidity being trapped which can cause bubbles to come out at last minute. By applying 1-2 coats of our fast setting epoxy CHILL SEALER 2:1 ratio, you will create a barrier blocking this air to come out and create bubbles.
NOTE : that every type of wood is different so is their density. High density wood will tend to release air, when low density woods will trap a bigger amount.

Walnut 0.65 – 0.7 40 – 43
Maple 0.6 – 0.75 39 – 47
Oak 0.6 – 0.9 37 – 56
Pine 0.35 – 0.5 22 – 31
