Q:My counter has a seam do I fill it in and sand smooth
by|Dec 13, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  We recommend you patch nicks and seams with wood filler. Giani will cover up thin, shallow scratches. Once the filler is dry, sand the wood patch smooth with a #300 fine grit sandpaper. Wipe up the dust with a damp cloth and you're ready for the next step!

      Q:Can this be applied over concrete counter tops?
      by|Nov 17, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Giani may be applied to concrete counters as long as they are indoor, fully cured, and free of concrete sealer. If there is a sealer on the surface, you’ll need to use a xylene or lacquer thinner to remove it. Be sure to follow all of the manufacturer’s instructions regarding ventilation and extinguishing pilot lights, because xylene/lacquer thinner is very flammable! After you’ve used the xylene or lacquer thinner, follow with rubbing alcohol to remove all residue. It is typically a good idea to acid wash the surface to prep for paint adhesion. You can find some tips on acid washing concrete on this page https://www.wikihow.com/Acid-Wash-Concrete. Be sure to let your counters dry out for several days before beginning the process. Concrete is very porous, so even if the surface feels dry to the touch, more moisture will need to evaporate from the underneath layers of the surface.

        Q:Does the paint get lumpy
        by|Nov 13, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Our paints are not lumpy after being produced. The only way our paints would be lumpy, is if the product experienced a deep freeze or if the product was well past its shelf life.

          Q:I have laminate countertops with the same laminate running 18” up as a backsplash. Can this be used on that backsplash?
          by|Oct 30, 2023
          1 Answer
          Answer This Question

          A:  Unfortunately the epoxy cannot be used over large vertical surfaces. I would recommend purchasing our high gloss topcoat separately and using it to seal the white primer and veins. You would apply the white primer and veining paints then apply the acrylic topcoat to the backsplash. Once the acrylic backsplash is dry you would then apply the epoxy too the horizontal part of your countertop. We would love to speak to you personally about this! Please feel free to reach out to us through our website.

            Q:Can I use it no wood?
            by|Sep 30, 2023
            1 Answer
            Answer This Question

            A:  Giani may be used on wood. The key is to ensure that your wood surface is as smooth as possible before starting. Plywood is a very challenging surface because its natural wood grain will typically telegraph through the final finish. As an alternative, you may use particle board or MDF board. For wood surfaces (this includes real butcher block, not laminate that looks like butcher block, and unsealed wood trim or countertops), be sure to apply one or two coats of a good wood primer to the particle board or wood surface before applying the Giani primer. Apply the wood primer with a foam roller for ultra smooth finishes because thicker nap rollers will leave a textured finish.

              Answer This Question

              A:  Thank you for reaching out with your question. When our epoxy is used as instructed, it is indeed safe for babies to be in the house. Please make sure to follow the usage instructions provided.

                Q:Odd question. Can i do this over my glass dining and coffee table?
                by|Sep 26, 2023

                Answer This Question

                A:  Giani is not designed to be used on Glass. You could elect to use a specialty glass primer and then once that cures you could apply the Giani primer. Please note that since we have not tested this we can not cover it by our limited warranty.

                  Q:Can you add color to the base coat? Tinting?
                  by|Sep 19, 2023
                  1 Answer
                  Answer This Question

                  A:  If your local paint professional feels comfortable tinting Giani, you’re welcome to do so. Please note that tinting your Giani will void the limited warranty because we are unable to predict how it will affect the performance of the product. If you were to do this please inform the paint professional that the marble primer is a water based primer.
