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.

      Q:My countertop back splash where it meets the counter has caulk and not sure if I can remove it as it?s holding it together is there something I can put on the caulk so the paint will stick
      by|Aug 21, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Unfortunately there is not. All caulking will need to be removed. Typically caulking is not what is bonding the backsplash to the surface. It is simply filling the gap between the counter and backsplash. If you expose a gap after removing the caulk, then you will need to seal it with a wood filler.

            A:  Honestly I don’t know! It should hold but the high traffic of water and cleaning could compromise the enamel.

              Q:Will this product work on formica countertops and if it does how many coats will it require?
              by|Jul 12, 2023
              1 Answer
              Answer This Question

              A:  Yes this kit is designed to work on formica! You will need to follow our standard instruction. Typically two coats of primer is all that is required. This can vary based on how dark your countertop is. The epoxy included in the kit is designed to be applied as a single layer. The epoxy in the kit comes in 3 single sets. A single set is 1 activator and 1 resin can. You mix 1 single set at a time and spread it over no more than 12 sq ft at a time. If you have more technical questions I would recommend reaching out to us through our website.

                Q:Can you use this over granite
                by|Jun 30, 2023
                1 Answer
                Answer This Question

                A:  You can absolutely use Giani on your granite countertops! To prep your granite, first dampen a rag and apply a generous layer of xylene or lacquer thinner to remove the sealer. Then, scrub the surface with rubbing alcohol to ensure all residue is removed. Once the alcohol has evaporated you can continue with the standard Giani process. Note: Make sure to follow the xylene or lacquer thinner manufacturer’s safety procedures and extinguish all pilot lights, such as from a gas stove, because xylene and lacquer thinner are very flammable!

                  Q:Other epoxy products I have looked into require you to use a heat source after pouring to remove air bubbles. Does this product require any heat? I didn't see it used in the video so I thought I would ask.

                  Answer This Question

                  A:  In most cases of consumer epoxy products, you would use heat as an air-releasing method. So we formulated our Giani Epoxy Resin Topcoat with air release agents that prevent trapped air from curing into the finish. It's pretty awesome stuff! Truly no torch or heat is needed, which makes for a simpler, less lengthy application. Please note that using a heat gun with our epoxy will cause our product to discolor.

                    Q:How do I measure my counter top ?
                    by|May 25, 2023
                    1 Answer
                    Answer This Question

                    A:  You can find your square footage by using a tape measure to find the length and width of your surface. Say, for example, that you have a section of counters that is 5 feet long, and 2 feet wide; this would be a 10 sq ft section (5x2). Instead of this, you may also prefer to measure it in inches, as this last section would be 60 inches by 24 inches. 60 x 24 = 1440, which gives you the area in sq inches. To convert this to sq ft, just divide by 144, which would give that this space is 10 sq ft. Simply find the square footage of each area, and then add them together to get your total square footage! You can also find our square footage calculator by clicking on the "SQ FT Calculator" Tab on our website's homepage.
