TotalBoat Thixo 2:1 Epoxy System

TotalBoat Thixo is a thickened epoxy adhesive that gives you the reliability and strength of a modern 2:1 epoxy system in an easy to use 185ml cartridge. This convenient point and shoot system is ideal for bonding wood, metal and fiberglass above or below the waterline.

Thixo cartridges fit standard caulking guns. Lay a bead of this non-sagging adhesive to vertical or overheard surfaces. TotalBoat Thixo cures to a hard, translucent surface that can be drilled, painted, or sanded. This no-mess, no-hassle versatile 2:1 epoxy system comes equipped with two free static mixing tips to ensure accurate mix ratio upon application every time. Ideal working temperatures range from 50-80 degrees F.

Cartridges are available individually and in contractor packs of (6) cartridges. Additional mixing tips are sold separately.

    I just rebuilt a 50 year old Herreshoff sailboat. I put a new deck house on the boat and built it out of marine ply, glass and mahogany. I could not have done it without Thixo. It was a godsend. When I started the project I had never used a 2:1 premix like Thixo, but now that I am finished, I am not sure what I would have done without it. This is a DIY boat builder's must have product.

    The idea of this product is good, as it eliminates mixing and thickening, but the epoxy is very difficult to press out of the tube, and extreemly difficult if it is colder than 65 degrees.
    It saves time in a way, to not have to keep adding thickener to get the right consistancy, but time is lost when applying, due to the time comsumption trying to get it out of the tube. If it were to dispense like caulk it would be perfect. The product is too stiff to get out, even when not using the tips, and just mixing out of the tube.The cure time seems to be longer than standard mixing by hand also, but that is not a real problem, just an observation. I would recomend this for warm weather use, or warming the product before use, it helps some, but should be a bit thinner for easier application.

        This stuff is great! Very easy to work with. If you are having trouble getting it to come out, add the Caulking Gun - Heavy Duty Professional to your tools. I bought one and it makes a HUGE difference. I don't know why I didn't buy a gun like that before! I wish it had a little more per tube, but it has what it can hold since it is two parts. Highly recommend for joining parts where a quick squeeze with a caulk gun is quicker and easier than mixing some yourself.

              used this to reattach a hydronic furnace mounting board to the fiberglass hull of my trawler. A very awkward location, so using a caulking gun was essential. This product was easy to use, and did an excellent job of holding the mounting board to the inside of the hull. Priced right.

              This is quick and simple - no mixing needed. caulking gun can get into hard to reach places.
              The only negative is that is is difficult to dispense when the tube temp is below 68 degrees. Some tubes seem to dispense better than others.

                  Last winter was so cold that the ground froze deep and broke the 8-inch concrete masonry block basement wall. After grinding out the loose mortar, I caulked the gaps with Thixo. That was step one in a multi-step fix using unidirectional carbon cloth and West System epoxy. I know the wall is intact and the damaged interior mortar joints are stronger than new. (Yes, I wished I was building another sail board the whole time I was fixing a basement wall.) Next summer, I will fix the outside of the wall...
                  Note: You can re-cap the tube and save material for later. The mix tip will set-up, but Thixo gives you an extra mix tip.

                    Restoring a neglected Balboa 26 involves removing every deck fastener, oversize re-drilling of the hole and filling with epoxy to create a waterproof "corridor" for water to leak through in the (inevitable) event of future leakage through aged caulking around these fasteners so as to protect the plywood core from rot. Noble purpose, tricky execution. Straight-up epoxy leaks, thickened epoxy difficult to apply, much frustration...until this product used. Perfect ease of application, effortless to contain within the hole by taping the cabin roof and squirting througn the deck - this product is ideal for this application. Perfect!

                      Used it to repair some rot in some planks in my CC Connie. I have not sanded and painted it yet, but it was easy to use to fill in the rotten areas after I soaked it with Smith's CPES. The waste in the nozle bothers me because I just hate waste!
