The perfect epoxy resin for a penny floor project

GlassCast 3 is a premium quality clear epoxy coating resin designed specifically to produce a super-smooth, hard-wearing, high-gloss surface for decorative applications like penny floors. In fact, GlassCast 3 was the resin used in the famous UK Penny Floor Project video which went viral on YouTube with over 100 million views!

This purpose-designed coating resin uses special additives - not found in more general purpose clear epoxy systems – which mean GlassCast 3 cures with a near-perfect smooth, glossy surface which really shows off the look of the pennies (or other decorative inclusions) under the resin.

GlassCast 3 has been developed to be as easy-to-use as possible and is suitable for use by professional installers or DIY users.

Why choose GlassCast 3 for a penny floor?

  • Self-levelling – No resin cures with a smoother, glossier surface.
  • Self-degassing – Releases trapped air bubbles.
  • UV resistant – Minimal yellowing.
  • Solvent free – 100% solids, no VOCs, almost odourless.
  • Hard-wearing – GlassCast is very tough and scratch resistant.
  • Most trusted – GlassCast 3 has been used on thousands of floors, worldwide!

Getting Started

How much resin do I need?

Working out how much resin you need for a penny floor is very easy. Start by working out the area of your floor in square metres; this is just the length in metres, multiplied by the width.

So, for example, a 3m x 2m room = 6 square metres.

For grouted pennies multiply the area by 2.5; so 6 sqm x 2.5 = 15kg of resin
For un-grouted pennies multiply the area by 3.5; so 6 x 3.5 = 21kg of resin

What else do I need?

Very little! – Pouring a GlassCast 3 coating over your pennies is straight-forward and requires no special tools or equipment. You’ll just need some nitrile gloves, 2 large mixing buckets, a mixing stick a spreader

Can’t find the answer you’re looking for?Ask our technical team a question.
Warm soapy water.  Generally most mild household detergents are fine.  Avoid neat or very strong detergents. If you do need to use strong detergents for stains, then we recommend wiping it clean afterwards with water to ensure no residues remain. 
GlassCast is designed to withstand permanent exposure to temperatures of up to 45deg C, so as long as the floor does not get hotter than that it will be fine. GlassCast does respond very well to gentle warmth when curing, if you set the temperature to reach 25 - 30 degrees it will speed up the cure allowing you to use the floor sooner. If you do decide to use the heat during the cure I would advise preheating the floor and leaving it on during the entire cure process, rather than exposing it to temperature fluctuations.

Can’t tell you how pleased I am with my penny floor, great tutorial and very helpful technical support to all my questions over the phone, I was so apprehensive about getting the resin right, as I’ve never done a project like this before, but I mixed and poured the resin today and it looks beautiful like a sheet of glass, thanks for all your help
