I was wondering if the Gianni Kit for countertops has a strong odor. Do any of the applications have a strong odor?
By Reggie from Baltimore, MD
Yes, they all (meaning any countertop paints) have a strong odor. It's important to do them with adequate ventilation. I recently have redone my countertops with the Rustoleum countertop paint and it was very strong. My other suggestion, from experience it when you paint the counter tops, be very careful with canned goods. If they fall out of the cabinet, it will chip your finish and you will have to do touch up in those spots! Here are before pictures and then the next post of an after. (10/29/2010)
How safe is it to apply?
GIANI granite countertop surfaces are safe, water-based polymers and minerals that require the same basic precautions as most water-based coatings.
1) How much does it smell?
GIANI water-based minerals emit less odor than ordinary latex house paint.
2) Does it contain any lead?
No, GIANI does not contain any lead.
As a public service, all paint manufacturers have placed notices on their cans to warn consumers if they are removing old house paint to make sure the old house paint does not contain lead.
3) Is it safe for food?
Yes, once GIANI fully cures, in approximately two weeks, it's safe for incidental food contact.
Note, as with all countertop surfaces, all cutting and chopping food preparation should be done on a cutting board. And if food or liquids are spilled on GIANI, its polymers lock them out for easy removal.
