EP1618 Crystal Clear High Gloss Epoxy Resin



EP1618 is an extremely clear epoxy coating, sealing, encapsulating and beautifying most surfaces 1/8” or thinner.  EP1618 will cure to a clear, smooth, high-gloss finish.  EP1618 will waterproof and provide protection against environmental exposure, cleaners and most solvents.  EP1618 exhibits excellent impact resistance and adheres to most surfaces including concrete, metal, wood and fiberglass.  EP1618 is tintable by using Eager Polymers EP7701 transparent dyes, INSTINT color dispersions and EP7702 opaque pigments.


EP1618 is widely used in zoological and marine environments, amusements parks, dioramas, modeling, bar & table tops, live-edge tables, and industrial applications such as flooring (ie factory, warehouse, garage, etc).  EP1618 is 100% solids containing no solvents.

For marine environments with aquatic life contact, allow 5 – 7 days full cure at 77F before covering with water.  For table & bar tops allow 5 – 7 full cure before placing objects onto surface.  For flooring applications surface preparation should be done by a professional flooring contractor before applying EP1618.



  1. Surface to be sealed should be clean and free of dirt, oils, loose materials and do not apply to surface temperatures below 50° F.
  2. Mix  2 parts of A with 1 part B by volume. Mix with a stick or a slow speed mixer for 3-5 minutes. Apply EP1618 by brush roller or spray as a primer to the area to be overlaid.
  3. Allow 16-24 hour cure at room temperature. For use in marine environments, allow to cure for 5-6 days at room temperature or warmer before covering with water.
