TotalBoat Polyester Laminating Resin is used as a first coat for base coat applications. Without wax, this resin remains tacky to hold fiberglass fabric in place on vertical surfaces. Needs no sanding between coats. Laminating resin is excellent for saturating fiberglass fabrics. MEKP (methyl ethyl ketone peroxide) catalyst included.
Available in Quart and Gallon Kits.
Note: The Polyester Laminating Resin you receive will be either blue or pink in color, depending on the time of year your order is placed. Blue (winter formula) contains more promoter to help it set up more quickly in cooler temperatures; blue will still work in warmer temperatures, but will set up quickly. Pink is the summer formula, intended for use in warmer temperatures.
WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including styrene, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer. For more information, go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov

Thanks for making such a great system. I've never done any glass work and you guys made it easy. I molded my own "hood scoop" and grafted it onto my propane hatch. Now I can run (2) vertical tanks and double my time between refills…

The Total Boat polyester resin is excellent stuff! I've used 10's of gallons of this Total Boat polyester resin for various projects, most notably for making female moulds for automotive body kits. Unlike the 3M Bondo polyester resin (commonly available at big box hardware stores), the Total Boat polyester resin is thin like water and mixes very easily with the mekp. You need a low viscosity resin (like Total Boats) for it to be sucked up by CSM Fiberglass and break down the styrene binder, otherwise if the resin is too viscus (like the 3M Bondo resin) it will not properly break down the styrene binder in CSM. One tip i have learned, is not too add too much mekp. When the resin 'kicks' if it gets too hot too quickly it can warp. Mixing too little mekp is fine, but it could take a little over a day to cure.

If you're buying laminating resin, get more than you need. I struggled to find this locally so I should have gotten more.

Terrific for large layups. Sets up in a couple hours and can put multiple layers on in a day. Needs to be coated with finishing resin, wax, or PVA to cure or it will clog sanding pads pretty quick

Been through quite a few gallons of this by now, and never had an issue. Performance is great, reliable curing.

Use it for repairing my boat. Works great. A little off topic. First gallon I ordered, it looks green. Second gallon, it looks a little purplish. not sure if it matter with anyone. I have no problem.

I used this product in conjunction with 3/4oz fiber glass to layer up a custom fiberglass seat pan for my motorcycle after learning that my manufacturer discontinued distribution during the pandemic. I'm still in shock about how well this works. It came out extremely sturdy and was easy to shape with an angle grinder. The new seat fits better than the stock seat that came with my bike. My only critique is that I had a really difficult time ordering through the website. I ended up calling twice (two different orders) and was gladly helped both times. So this is just a minor style critique - as I'm accustomed to being able to order things online . Overall very happy with the quality of the product and customer service. I will be doing this again as I have friends who are interested in building their own pans now, plus I have some ideas I'd like to turn into reality with a second a third pan (if I can find the time lol)
