How to Rescure Epoxy Scratches?

Epoxy tables are usually very durable and scratch-resistant, especially compared to traditional wood tables. Epoxy is a very strong chemical with a hard and shiny surface that can withstand the wear and tear of everyday use. However, it is still impossible to avoid scratches caused by heavy or sharp objects dragging on the surface, especially if the surface is not properly maintained or is subject to excessive wear and tear over time.

To minimize the risk of scratches, follow these recommendations:

  1. Use coasters, placemats, or felt pads before placing hot pans.
  2. Apply a protective film to newly purchased epoxy tables.
  3. Avoid cutting with knives directly on the tabletop to avoid scratching the surface.
  4. Clean and maintain regularly using a mild detergent and soft cloth to maintain a smooth surface finish.
  5. Regular use of epoxy resin special care products to increase its durability and gloss.

Unfortunately, the epoxy resin table has been scratched. You can do the following treatment:

  • Light scratches: If the scratches are shallow, try sanding off the marks with fine-grained sandpaper first, and then use a light cloth or sponge with a small amount of polishing compound to gently rub the scratches over and over again until the scratches are gradually reduced or eliminated and the smoothness and luster of the surface are restored. If it's your first time trying it, test it on an inconspicuous corner first.
  • Moderate scratches: For deeper or more noticeable scratches, simple sanding and buffing compounds may not work very well. In this case, you need to lay down a layer of epoxy resin, wait for the resin to dry completely, and then use sandpaper to gently sand the surface until it is level with the surrounding surface. Finally, use a polishing compound to buff the surface to match the surrounding area.
  • Deep Scratches: For very deep or noticeable scratches, more repair work may be required, as well as a little more patience. In this case, the fill and polish method can be repeated several times to gradually repair the scratch until a satisfactory repair is achieved.
  • Seek professional help: If the scratches are too serious or the repair method is not clear, it is recommended to seek professional help. Kazanahome is a company specializing in epoxy tables.
