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 from Pint, Quart, Half-Gallon, and Gallon sizes.

I needed to add some re-enforcement of the wood fibers to sit under a tung oil finish for outdoor Log furniture. The shipping and packing was great received two measuring cuts and gloves so excellent touch that don't see much of these days from China sea.

Seems pretty fool proof, did not experiment with mixtures just followed the video on the site. I was expecting a hardening fast and sticky but it was not, It had a good working time brushed on well. You can see it sinking into the wood and filling the cracks.

It went on darker than I was hoping for but expected as much. I was planning on using it on three full size log furniture benches and a small log furniture top. With the darken on the color I decided not to use it on the whole small table and the other three benches. But the top turned out awesome. Added light pine trim to accent the top. The tung oil finish over the expoxy and with just the one coat of finish it gave a clear glass finish that really popped.

Didn't use all the product as stated but as far as using it for open grained wood excellent and also would recommend its use if you want to make a table out of salvaged wood with defects as it enhances it and give one of the best bases I have seen for final finish as it did not seen to interfere and dried clear with no blushing or uneven drying.

    Comments about TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy Kits:

    I used it as directed, mixed 2:1 and not thinned, on a transom I fabricated for a 14' aluminum boat. I prepped the birch plywood by sanding to 100 grit. Expecting good penetration and coverage, and not overly concerned with aesthetics, I did not bother to fill minor chips or dents. The epoxy produces a hard, flexible surface that is verifiably thick to the naked eye, and it seems to soak and plaster every bit of the wood, just as I wanted it to. It has little odor (even pleasant) and mixes and brushes very nicely. I applied the product at about 70'F (after warming the jugs in hot water for 15 mins) with some humidity. The first coat, which was applied too thickly, took about 48 hours to cure; the second thinner coat took about 24 hours. I will apply at least one more coat, and then will lightly sand and apply a marine-grade paint for UV protection.

    I did not intend an aesthetically pleasing clear coat, so the product is perfect for my needs. A woodworker wanting a pure clear varnish-type finish might find this leaves some bubbles and drips, or may have more talent and time than I to render a fine finish. To me, as a clear coat, it is not overly aesthetically pleasing, being kind of "syrupy" and heavy. However, one uses epoxy for its protection first, and this suits my needs ideally.

    Comments about TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy Kits:

    I tried to order CPES and this product turned up in the search. I figured that I would give it a try. It is too thick to penetrate, even when I thinned it by 50% with acetone as recommended in the instructions. The product sits on top and has very little penetration. The CPES works much better, and I will find a new source to purchase that product. CPES gives excellent penetration and stabilizes the wood.

      Comments about TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy Kits:

      Used product on white oak tiller I was refinishing. Instructions were a little inadequate. After using product, Off Center Harbor posted video on using and finishing penetrating epoxy. Wish I'd seen it before using product. Emphasis on applying epoxy very carefully to avoid unevenness leading to unnecessary sanding would have been helpful. Had called Jamestown and been advised to use chip brush. Wish I'd rolled and tipped per OCH. Overall, however, I'm still pleased with product and results.

        Used the epoxy to salvage 20 year old black cherry crotch slabs for a striking coffee table. The slabs had extensive cracking, checks, loose knots, soft & rotten spots & loose bark. Multiple applications of epoxy & sanding turned poor firewood into a beautiful coffee table.
