Worked out well. Really satisfied.
By Louie from Summit Ms

I used this in covering the new ply laid in on my floor. It became easier as I learned how to mix it with the hardener and mixing the right amount for the time I had to work it. I never mixed more than 8 ozs.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

The resin and hardener worked like it should. The only bad thing I experienced was the can was hard to pour from .I poured the resin into a plastic jug which worked a lot better.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Great for old sailboats
By Rangerick from Colorado

Verified Purchase

Used this resin on my old sailboats' interior and exterior. Since polyester resin was used to build the boat, it works great. Use protective clothing and a mask. It has strong fumes. I followed Andys' suggestions at Boatworks Today when I applied it.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

I highly recommend this product.
By Looking Hookup fishing team from Sumter, SC

I'm not a professional at working with fiberglass but I have learned enough to know that quality resins and glass makes any job easier. I have tried a lot of different types of resins in the past most driven by cheaper prices. For the money total boat resin is the best I have found.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Mixes right lives up the cure time before it shows signs of gelling up. Clean up with acetone.

Laminating resin didn't remain tacky
By Jonathan from Anderson, SC

Verified Purchase

I have used JD products extensively in the past and all have surpassed expectations. This gallon of laminating resin, however, turned rock-hard/solid after about 12 hours. I followed the activator (MEKP I think) instructions to the letter...exact number of drops per oz, and the temps were around 70F. I have used JD resin, West Marine resin, Bondo resin, etc so I'm very familiar with finish resin, laminating resin, etc and application. Two stars because, as a finish resin, the product would have worked great, but this was supposed to be a laminating resin. I was able to sand up the final 'lamination' (now really hard), and zero resin transferred to the sandpaper...generally laminating resin will gum up coarse grit sandpaper. I'm speculating this was just a batch or lot of resin that was mis-labeled as laminating resin, but was actually finish resin. I contacted JD and they offered to send over a replacement gallon of laminating resin which was great, but I declined, as I was able to make the 'laminating' resin work by coarse sanding it to prep for the finish layers. I will buy from JD in the future, but just be cautious if you leave the final 'laminating resin' layer overnight to finish with a 'finishing resin' coat that the 'laminating resin' may be 'finish resin' and require a coarse sanding.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
