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 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.

                  i used this product to seal the replacement stringers & flooring on a Bayliner floor replacement & also to "beef up" a soft spot in the transom area. This product does everything it claims. I was amazed at the penetration in the transom area & the end results were amazing. Just a couple tips...be sure to mix well for at least the recommended two minutes, preferably three. Doing this will give you consistent results between batches. Also, watch the clock! You have between 20 & 25 minutes pot time, so plan ahead. Again, great product that yields great results.

                    I use it to seal new teak work and repair a soft floor area. I intend to strip all the bright work and use this as a penetrating sealer (2 coats) prior to 2 finish coats of varnish.
