What is food grade epoxy paint?

Not all epoxy paints are created equal, however, for most epoxies that claim to be food safe, it's critical that you understand that they can be food safe, if cured properly. Because it is ultimately up to the end user to mix, pour, and cure the epoxy, each application would have to be assessed individually to ensure it is properly cured in order to say that it is food safe.
