Is Epoxy Resin Safe?

Industrial Clear meets the demand for a safe tabletop epoxy with a low-odor, non-toxic, non-corrosive, and food-safe formula that is free of solvents, fillers or other hazardous ingredients. 

No Solvents, No Fumes, Non-Corrosive, Non-Toxic Epoxy Resin



Industrial Clear was developed in response to the growing demand for a safe tabletop epoxy. The reality is that many epoxy resins on the market carry significant health risks. A quick glance at their labels reveal corrosive or skull and cross bone pictograms, and their Safety Data Sheets warn that their ingredients cause skin and eye burns, cancer, reproductive issues and lung damage. 


Industrial Clear contains no fillers or solvents that can cause headaches, respiratory issues or other toxic effects.  It has a low odor and does not emit VOCs (volatile organic compounds) or fumes that could harm your lungs. Industrial Clear underwent stringent evaluation and has been confirmed as a non-toxic and non-corrosive product. 

We can achieve this high standard because Industrial Clear is made with the highest quality raw materials. In contrast to many table top epoxy resins on the market, you will never find cheap fillers in our product. These fillers, often solvents, are used to stretch out the formula and reduce costs. Unfortunately, solvents are flammable, toxic, and typically non-reactive, which means they don't bond with other ingredients in the formula and release as fumes and VOCs into the air. This not only poses health risks, but also results in shrinkage in the cured resin. 


Always read the label or check the Safety Data Sheet to determine what personal protective equipment you need for the epoxy you are using.  For example, because Industrial Clear releases no toxic fumes or VOCs, no respirator is required as long as you’re working in a well-ventilated space. Of course, we always recommend wearing gloves to avoid a sticky mess on your hands or possible skin irritation. 

Unlike many epoxy companies who only provide their Safety Data Sheet upon request, Industrial Clear provides 24/7 access to the SDS on our website. 
Our SDS contains information about personal protective measures for product use, first-aid procedures, chemical properties of the ingredients, and safe guidelines for storage, handling, transport and disposal. Most importantly, you won't find corrosive or burn warnings, or skull and cross bone icons in our SDS.

💡 TIP:  The download link for our Safety Data Sheet can be found on our Shop page.


Once fully cured, Industrial Clear is also food-safe, meaning that no chemicals will migrate into food that comes into contact with it. You can confidently apply Industrial Clear to items such as plates, charcuterie boards, serving trays, bar-tops, counters or any other pieces intended for serving food. 


The bottom line is that the resin you're using shouldn't hurt you. We hope this information, and our Safety Data Sheet, make you feel really safe using Industrial Clear.
