Is Epoxy Resin Scratch & Heat Resistant?

Hey there, crafty friends! 🎨 Today, let's dive into a question hotter than a fresh cup of coffee on a Monday morning: "Is epoxy scratch and heat resistant?" 🤔

 

Scratches?

First things first, let's talk scratches. Epoxy resin is pretty resilient (it's tough, just like you!) but, like all good things, it's not invincible. Sharp or rough edges can leave a mark, but usually, these scratches are like the hidden talents of your introverted friend - hardly noticeable! 🕵️‍♂️ Remember, it's always a smart move to use a cutting board for those chop-chop moments. And hey, coasters and placemats aren't just for show - they're epoxy BFFs! While epoxy resin does give a hard protective coating, it can still scratch if you take a sharp object to it. 

 

Heat?

Now, onto the heat. 🔥 Epoxy is like that friend who loves summer but can't handle the heatwave. It's got some resistance, but let's not treat it like your grandma's old granite countertop. After fully curing, our epoxy can handle up to 135°F. But please, no hot pans or skillets straight from the stove. That's a recipe for a not-so-pretty mark! And be careful with those red dyes – they're the cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving; they stain!

 

Keep these tips in mind, and your epoxy project will be turning heads and sparking conversations at your next get-together! 🌟
