marine ply table top with teak bullnose edge

Hi, I built some garden tables using marine ply tops with teak bullnose edging.
I'm worn out from trying to keep them clean. We have an occasional get together
with family and friends (daily) during the summer.
The table tops get stained from coffee, tomato sauce, beer, hot plates, etc. etc.
They also have to endure sunshine, sea water spray, rain and the occasional dancing exhibition.
I need; heat and uv resistant, durable enough to wipe clean, flexible paint to cover these tables.
Is there a solution?

Thanks all,
Cléire

I'd suggest you go to a Sherwin Williams store, tell them what you want to do and ask about epoxy coatings.

That made me grin
Most any paint store should be able to advise you on what coatings will work for you. That is a real paint store, not a paint dept!
btw - welcome to the forums Cléire!

Thank you markser and XSleeper. I have tried a couple of specialised paint companies and nothing to tick all boxes.
I had never heard of Sherwin Williams (not a huge retail presence in my side of the planet), email sent to them. Thanks again. Ill let you know how I get on.

maybe I'm a little dense but could you further explain that?

"I have tried a couple of specialised paint companies and nothing to tick all boxes".

Apologies for the lack of detail markser.
What meant was that I have tried a couple of specialised paint companies and none of them had a product or a solution to all of my issues. They each had solutions to some of the issues but none of them had a complete solution.

"I need; heat and uv resistant, durable enough to wipe clean, flexible paint to cover these tables."

You can't always get a coating that will meet all of the requirements. You need to decide which is the most important and go from there. It shouldn't be a big deal to throw out the heat requirement and just set down a pad or something to insulate hot pots/pans from the coating. Overall latex coatings are more flexible and UV resistant than solvent based coatings. Oil base enamel is more scrubable than latex enamel.

Go to a local boat supply store... inquire about marine epoxy paints. I believe that will be the best type of product you could hope for.
