TotalBoat TableTop Epoxy will form a very strong bond to stainless steel if the surface is free of all contamination. Remove all dirt, dust, grease, oils, water, wax, or other materials from the stainless surface. Ideally, the stainless surface would be scuff sanded to create a slightly rough texture for the epoxy to bond. Remove all sanding residue without adding any new surface contamination. Apply the epoxy to the stainless surface.
