Marine-Tex Gluvit Epoxy Water Sealer

Gluvit is a waterproof epoxy sealer used to find, fill and seal leaks. Use it on cracks in fiberglass, metal, and wood on your boat or in your home.

Application results in a hard, impact and abrasion resistant protective barrier coat that minimizes fiberglass blistering and corrosion. In addition, the hard protective coating flexes with hull movements to bridge and seal hairline cracks. Use Gluvit on aluminum fishing boats to repair leaky aluminum seams and rivets.

The cure rate has a long working time that allows penetration into cracks to seal and strengthen. Gluvit fills minor chips and pinholes, and is easily painted with most bottom or topside coatings and paints.

    Jamestown recommended using this product to seal the bottom of a fuel tank that I was repairing. The product was great - worked exactly as described and did what I was hoping it would do. The product was easy to mix, apply and use. The results were a very durable surface that filled imperfections and surface problems. The Jamestown technical people were very responsive in answering my questions [...]. I would definitely use this product again for sealing metal, fiberglass, or wood (in fact, I am thinking of using it for a boat that I intend to restore). Great product - great company - I will definitely purchase again from Jamestown.

      Comments about Marine-Tex Gluvit Epoxy Water Sealer:

      Gluv-It is a great product for aluminum boats. I had a leaking keel and rubber bladder at the front end of the keel where the aluminum sheets combine. The product instructions were easy to follow, the product mixed and applied easily, and it stayed where I placed it, even in the upside down position. With a little planning and proper placement the applied product flowed into the cracks and openings that were difficult to get enough product to directly. Drying time was a few days and the follow up test for leaks proved that it worked.

        Comments about Marine-Tex Gluvit Epoxy Water Sealer:

        My 27 year old aluminum boat developed leaks along the keel. The leaks were evident at specific rivets as well as at a rubber bladder near the front of the boat. I reviewed the boat manufacturer's website for recommendations as to a fix for the leaks and found several references to Gluvit. The Gluvit product was easy to mix and to apply. It flowed into the numerous cracks and crevices over the few days of drying and the boat is now watertight again. Great product with great results.

            If you can paint a wall in your home or apartment, you will be amazed at how easy this product is to use. I am not a fast painter, but doing one section at a time is very easy, and even more amazing is after the product dries. It covers completely and you can see for yourself what a great product this is. You might want to paint afterwards. I'm going to use a non slip paint on my boat.

                  It applied pretty easily. I mixed it in 2 separate batches which was a little difficult. I repaired the bottom of an aluminum deck boat at the seam. I looks like it has sealed well, but I haven't had it in the water yet.

                    We used this product to seal cracks on the fiberglassed deck of our wooden boat. Then we painted it over with non skid paint. It sealed great. We washed down the deck and found no leaks at all. We applied the product around the hatches as well. Exceptional seal!

                      The boat I just purchased had minor leaks along several seams. I ran Gluvit along the seams and, for good measure, over the rivits. Didn't take much to do that. No leaks now. I'm happy. The stuff is barely visible on the alum. I prep'ed with brass wire brush in drill.

                      Adhesion is very good and the epoxy stay flexible so it should stand up to expansion and contraction of the aluminum hull.
