Preperation & Application


Always read the instructions and watch the how-to DVD provided with the kit before use, or give our technical team a call on 0113 2455450.

Measure Up Your Worktop

Measure the size of your worktop area in sections. Be sure to mark measurements in metres, as shown in the example. (Note: 100cms = 1metre)

To calculate the square metre area (m²) of your worktop using the table below, multiply length and width of each section, then add the m² area of each section to give you the total m² area of your new worktop.

 

 

Preparation


A. Make sure the worktop area is in good condition and that all cracks, chips and dents have been repaired. Worktop Transformations will coat and cover any burns and small scratches in the existing Worktop whilst cracks, chips, deeper cuts or dents can be repaired by filling them with a 2-part epoxy putty. When the putty dries, sand the area until it is even with the surrounding surface. Once repairs have been made, follow the normal application process. Then, clean the worktop thoroughly with soap and water to remove any contaminants. Allow to dry.

B. Wearing a dust mask and gloves, thoroughly sand the entire worktop surface using the Sanding Tool. Place both hands firmly on the Sanding Tool and sand in a circular motion. Pay special attention to the splashback and the front edge of the worktop. Be careful when sanding around the sink and other areas since the Sanding Tool can easily scratch these surfaces. Remove dry caulk around the sink or splashback using a putty knife.

C. Use a hand brush and dust pan to remove sanding dust and wipe down the worktop with a damp, lint-free cloth. (You may also wish to use a suitable vacuum cleaner with hose attachment to remove dust). Once the surface is dry, rub your clean, bare hand on the worktop to check for dust. If you see dust on your hand, wipe the worktop down again and allow it to dry fully. Repeat as necessary until all sanding dust is removed.

D. Carefully inspect the surface to ensure that the entire surface is de-glossed - Complete de-glossing is CRITICAL for proper coating system.

E. Next, mask off the sink, appliances and all adjacent areas with masking tape. Spread the dust sheets onto the floor along all base cabinets. Apply smooth masking tape on the wall behind the splashback.

Drying times can be found above under "Technical Data".

 

Step 1: Apply The Basecoat


Once the worktop has been prepared, you will apply two even coats of the Base Coat, 2 hours apart. If you have a section that is over 1.8 metres long, have a second person help you apply the Base Coat.

A. Thoroughly stir the Base Coat using a stir stick. Pour a portion of the Base Coat into a clean paint tray.

B. Starting with the splashback, use a 50mm synthetic brush to apply an even coat of Base Coat.

C. Be sure that your coverage includes 2-5cm of the flat worktop surface that connects to the splashback. This will prevent your roller from accidentally bumping into the splashback while rolling.

D. Working from back-to-front, use the enclosed roller to apply an even coat of Base Coat over the entire worktop. Then use the brush again to coat any tight spaces (i.e. around the sink or in the corners).

E. For each section, once the Base Coat has been applied to the entire surface then re-roll in one, uniform direction towards your body.

F. After the Base Coat has been applied, quickly inspect the entire worktop for sags, mistakes, or areas of thin coverage. Apply more Base Coat where necessary.

G. After the first coat has dried for at least 2 hours or until the inside edges are dry, repeat steps A-F and apply a second even coat of Base Coat.

H. Once the second coat is touch dry (approx. 2 hours) and before it completely dries, be sure to remove the tape by first scoring it around the edges.

Allow the coating to dry overnight. However, apply the Protective Top Coat within 24 hours of applying the Base Coat.

 

Step 2: Apply The Protective Top Coat


In this final step, the Protective Top Coat will create a beautiful, lasting and protective finish for your new worktop surfaces. The Protective Top Coat is lowodour and requires no special ventilation.

Important: Contents of Protective Top Coat are flammable until applied to the surface. Extinguish all flames and pilot lights, and turn off stoves, heaters, electric motors and other sources of ignition during use until project is complete. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Do not smoke.

To clean off any dust that settled overnight, give the worktop a wipe down with a damp lint free cloth and allow to dry.

Important: Once mixed and activated, you will have 4 hours to apply the Protective Top Coat. Do not use leftover Protective Top Coat after 4 hours, even if it’s still liquid.

A. Mask off the sink, appliances, and all adjacent areas with masking tape. Spread the dust sheets on the floor along all base cabinets. Apply masking tape on the wall behind the splashback.

B. Wearing gloves and safety glasses, pour the entire contents of Part 2 Activator into the Part 1 Base and thoroughly mix with a stir stick for at least 2 minutes. It is important to stir thoroughly for proper activation. Then, pour a portion of the blended Protective Top Coat mixture into a clean paint tray, and cover remaining paint.

C. Use a 50mm synthetic paint brush to apply an even layer of Protective Top Coat to the splashback and along the edges. Be sure your coverage includes 2-5cm of the flat worktop surface that connects to the splashback as you did in the application of the Base Coat in Step 1. This will prevent your roller from accidentally bumping into the backsplash when rolling.

D. For even coverage and to avoid brush marks, you must use the roller provided. Roll an even coat, from back to front, over the entire surface of the worktop and over the front edge as you did in the application of the Base Coat in Step 1.

E. For each section, once the Protective Top Coat has been applied to the entire surface, re-roll in one uniform direction.

F. Allow the Protective Top Coat to dry undisturbed, taking steps to make sure the worktop is not touched or brushed up against. Keep windows closed, pets away, and ceiling fans off. Protective Top Coat will be tack free in 4 - 6 hours. Coating will dry overnight.

G. Allow the worktop to dry to the touch, approximately 4 - 6 hours. Score the masking tape along the edges of the worktop. Then carefully remove the tape.

H. Allow the Protective Top Coat to dry 48 hours for light use. Wait 7 days for full cure and maximum stain resistance.

questions Mark Burch on 01/02/2019
Question: 

Can I use this product on wooden worktops that have been coated in Junkers Rustic Oil over the years (all dried of course) but quite glossy?

Answer: 

Rust-Oleum Worktop Transformation Kit would not be suitable for application to this type of surface.

questions Anne on 01/02/2019
Question: 

Can I use this paint on earthstone worktops please? Thanks

Answer: 

Earthstone worktops appear to have an acrylic top layer, provided this has no wax or water repelling properties then the Rust-Oleum Worktop Transformation Kit can be applied. The abrasive pads can be used on this type of surface to provide the key for the colour base coat.

questions Phil  on 17/11/2018
Question: 

Can I use my own glitter to mix in to the topcoat?

Answer: 

The Rust-Oleum Worktop Transformation Kits (Black & White) both have glitter particles in the lacquer formulation. If you would like more of a glitter effect then you could put more glitter either stirred into the lacquer finish or sprinkled on top while it is still wet.

If sprinkling on top you would need to roller the particles into the lacquer to make sure it is completely covered. Any flakes which weren’t completely covered by the top lacquer could tarnish or react with cleaning products. Finally, if you do wish to introduce your own glitter we would recommend carrying out a test, before using the full kit.

questions Dorothy allen on 29/05/2018
Question: 

Can I mix white diamond with black galaxy for a deep or light grey.? Cheers

Answer: 

No, at the moment in the UK the only two colours available are Galaxy Black and Diamond White.

We advise against this as when mixing colours you can get colour separation, the 2 pigments don’t mix together completely and streaks will form in the finish.

questions wayne martin  on 21/04/2018
Question: 

can i get a touch up top coat for galaxy black as it was damaged after I left the job

Answer: 

Unfortunately we don't offer the components of the pack separately.

questions R Newton on 11/02/2018
Question: 

Is this finish heat proof

Answer: 

The coating is heat resistant, for example, it will take hot cups of tea on the surface, i.e. up to 100°C MAX but not a pan from the stove or casserole dish out of the oven for example.

questions Tracy on 31/01/2018

questions Emma on 23/08/2017
Question: I have a black worktop but I would like to change it to white. Would your white worktop kit be able to do this? Thanks

questions Donna on 27/10/2016
Question: Can I add glitter flakes or sprinkle them on work top to add to the work top?
Answer: 

The Rust-Oleum Worktop Transformation Kits (Black & White) both have glitter particles in the lacquer formulation. If you would like more of a glitter effect then you could put more glitter either stirred into the lacquer finish or sprinkled on top while it is still wet.
If sprinkling on top you would need to roller the particles into the lacquer to make sure it is completely covered. Any flakes which weren’t completely covered by the top lacquer could tarnish or react with cleaning products. Finally, if you do wish to introduce your own glitter we would recommend carrying out a test, before using the full kit.

questions Jess on 30/09/2016
Question: Hi, would the white cover a black worktop?
Answer: 

No. Each kit is sufficient to coat 5m² of work surface, measure your area and ensure you purchase sufficient to apply 2 coats.

questions Andrea on 24/04/2016
Question: can worktop kit be tinted to make other colours , or mixed together to make grey?
Answer: 

No, at the moment in the UK the only two colours available are Galaxy Black and Diamond White.
