TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy Kits

TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy is a low-viscosity wood rot restoration and repair solution that seals deeper and cures stronger than industry leading penetrating epoxies. It contains no VOCs and has no smell.

This 2:1 system is ideal for restoring rotten or damaged wood, as well as sealing new wood for lasting protection against humidity, salt, mold and mildew. TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy works by gluing cellulose (wood) fibers back together and sealing a porous wood surface from the inside out. Once cured, this epoxy is 100% waterproof.

Surfaces may be painted or varnished over after light sanding. TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy may be applied by brush, roller, or injected via syringe. Acetone can be mixed with the epoxy resin solution in equal volume to double the penetrating power.

Choose quart, half-gallon & gallon sizes.

    First, I'm not using the TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy on a boat - I'm using it on an outdoor bar. I'm using Red Oak Flooring as the bar top and wanted to keep in nice in the weather.

    I think this product is EXCELLENT.
    It found this epoxy VERY forgiving since the first bucket I mixed I'm sure I only mixed for about 19 seconds versus the required 2 minutes. It still dried in 2 days as documented even though my mix time was really bad.
    When mixed as a 1:1 ratio with Acetone it really did soak in nicely - you can feel the ends of wood just close up and the tops seem bullet proof. 2 coats done so far - I'll sand and apply the final coat soon.

    I just wanted new users to be aware that all Epoxies bubble due to the heat created during curing. Since the product does take 2 days to cure you'd really need to be diligent in trying to stamp out the bubbles with a heat gun or even a hair dryer for a while.

    When using the product for a base sealer for raw teak, I find the product is too thick. The container doesn't specify how much thinner can be used and/or if more hardener most be added. Your previous product worked fine for my work with no problems. I find that this type of product works great for protecting the teak toe rail from discoloring when the varnish gets accidently chipped or removed.

      Comments about TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy Kits:

      Thinned it with about 25% denatured alcohol. Used it on the entire inside hull of an old wooden canoe. Penetrated nicely but took a couple of days to get to the point where I could sand. The wood that looked like it was close to dry rot just drank this epoxy up. In two days those areas were very hard and stable.

            I have used this penetrating epoxy over water based stains as reccomended. Works great. I am rebuilding a gutted 34' fiberglass boat. I use it as a "shop coating". I fully coat all my expensive marine plywood, especially the ends, with Total Boat Epoxy. I glass or coat over that as called for. I am using a hybrid system of 3M5200 and Total Boat Epoxy fiberglass joining. The staining is done in areas that will be visible or where I sent the boat out to professionals for welding projects.
            4 star instead of 5 because of the slooow cure time. The newer stuff is faster, so 5 on my next order.

                Comments about TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy Kits:

                I used this product to seal a butcher's block counter top for a bathroom vanity. Before applying the epoxy, I stained the wood. I cut it about 1:1 with acetone, but I wish I would have thinned it even more to improve penetration. I was surprised that some areas absorbed more than others. I sanded with 320 grit paper and used Epifanes wood finish matte over the top. I am quite pleased with the results, although I don't have much comment on durability yet.

                I did the finish work in my basement and fumes were not a concern at any point.

                    I used a similar product before that was so thin it seemed to evaporate before it found its way into the wood. The TotalBoat product is just the right viscosity, with just the right 'time to cure'. I used it on an old weathered skiff that we had built several years ago. I plan to use it on my house next...

                      I used to be partial to Smith's CPES, but that was before Steve Smith changed the formula in 2008, plus it was never cheap. When cut down 1:1 with denatured alcohol, JD's new penetrating epoxy works almost exactly the same and it's CRAZY CHEAP. Rotten wood just sucks it in like crazy. I love it! I'm sure it's less toxic to use, too. Old-formula CPES used an exotic blend of esthers for the solvent. The smell was pleasant, very floral and fruity, but no doubt horrible to breathe. With this I have no worries.

                        Thias stuff is awesome, especially thinned with acetone, it soaks into the wood like crazy and restores its structural strength, but more importantly it makes it impervious to further damage.
