TotalBoat Crystal Clear Epoxy Kits make it easy to get an extraordinarily clear, natural wood finish on brightwork, and wooden canoes and kayaks. Special UV filters in the hardener help prevent sunlight damage, and will improve the quality of the protection provided by any varnish finish.
These convenient, project-ready kits contain our TotalBoat Epoxy Resin, Crystal Clear Hardener, plus handy items for measuring and mixing: instructions, stir sticks, and mixing pots.
Kits are available in Group Size A (Quart Kit) and Group Size B (Gallon Kit), and are packaged to reduce waste and save money.
Note: Due to the COVID-19 Emergency, we have removed pumps from Crystal Clear Epoxy Kits and are offering kits at a special reduced price.

NOTE: TotalBoat Crystal Clear Hardener combined with TotalBoat Traditional Epoxy Resin has similar performance and finish characteristics as West System 207 Special Clear Hardener paired with West System 105 Epoxy Resin. However, for the clearest finish, we recommend the TotalBoat High Performance 2:1 Epoxy System.
Directions: TotalBoat Crystal Clear Hardener and TotalBoat Traditional Epoxy Resin can be dispensed by pouring.
Surface Preparation: All surfaces must be clean, dry, and free of any surface contamination. Light sanding is recommended, followed by an oil-free solvent wipe, or a lint-free rag dampened with isopropyl alcohol or plain water to remove dust.
MEASURING: NOTE: THE MIX RATIO IS DIFFERENT THAN TRADITIONAL TOTALBOAT FAST AND SLOW HARDENERS. There are two easy ways to measure: (1) BY VOLUME: Measure THREE parts TotalBoat Epoxy RESIN to ONE part TotalBoat Crystal Clear Hardener, or (2) BY WEIGHT: Measure 100A:27B.
MIXING: Mix for 1-2 minutes, then add any desired fillers, if needed. The catalyzing of TotalBoat Epoxy is an exothermic (heat-producing) reaction. The peak exotherm will vary according to ambient temperature and choice of hardener.
Eye/Skin Protection: Wear protective eye wear, suitable gloves, and protective clothing.
IMPORTANT: This container will not come filled to the top. It contains the calibrated amount of product to work in conjunction with the same size resin container.
Always wear protective clothing and equipment to protect your eyes, skin, and lungs when working with TotalBoat Traditional Epoxy Resin and Hardeners. Personal protective clothing should include appropriate gloves, safety glasses or goggles, a proper respirator, and a proper apron or similar protective clothing.

Goes on easy and dries quickly to a crystal clear finish. I've tried other epoxy & Total Boat has worked best for my projects.

This is my first purchase of total boat epoxy resin and I love it. Cures pretty fast and easy to measure, only Raquel pumps of each bottle. Only down side is that it has a smell and can over react in a small mold and large pours, shows how much of a newb I am at it. Other than that I would most defiantly order this product again and possibly in he larger size.

This stuff, when I read about it, I thought, no way, but yes way. It is great. Crystal clear. You will wnat a heat gun for the bubbles. I tried blue masking tape and Tyvec tape to cover one side of a hole all the way through wood. After using both, Tyvec tape is better. This is a very, very good product. Make sure you count your pumps and mix it in correct proportions as I screwed that up once and it did not set. Really high quality product.

When working on a canoe project I was persuaded to try Total Boat epoxy over West Systems by the positive reviews. I was not disappointed. This was my first time using an epoxy resin on a large scale. I was initially apprehensive that it would be more of a challenge than I could manage. It turned out to be straight forward and simple. The pump system was accurate and I had great results even mixing in small batches. I even used some of the left over epoxy almost two years later! The color had yellowed slightly but it set up and cured just as well. I will definitely be using it on my next project.

Cabinet top, quarter sawn white oak, about 7% moisture, 24 x 54. After gluing things were dead flat but that changed. Knots? Seasonal humidity? Made a few saw kerfs 3/4 deep in 1 inch stuff and used the epoxy to stabilize the underside. Not perfect flatness, I've done better, but the epoxy was so easy to use! It not only filled the kerfs but a hairline crack almost unnoticeable.

I hate writing bad reviews but I have given this epoxy many many chances. I've had 3 main issues when using it.The first issue and probably most angering is how it's still tacky days after application. I've mixed the proper ratio of 1 pump to 1 pump, I've used hand stiring, drill attachment stiring, always stiring a few minutes longer than the 2-3 Min recommendation, I come back in a day or 2 later to wrap up work on my project and it's still tacky! I've done everything in my power to check if it was fault on my part and it's not. This issue not only screws up my project, it wastes my time! Not only do I need to clean it with acetone, I have to apply another coat and hope That it dries! It's to the point where I have to use urethane over the epoxy because it doesn't harden. My second issue is how extremely easy it scratches and gets finger prints on! I use this epoxy to clear coat my drums, and even after a week of the initial coating, one small touch and there is a perminate scratch on it. Especially when I'm lashing the drums, the ropes slightest friction scratches it. Or if I pick it up, there's finger print marks everywhere that do not go away, if I try and clean them or whip them off, I get patches of a dull sheen where my clear crystal shine used to be, that means I have to go back and add another coat or a coat of urethane. My last issue is the bubbles. I've tried heat guns, blow torches, and nothing seems to get rid of all the small bubbles and I'm left with small holes and voids all over our drums. I've tried calling the company before and each time they have been baffelled at what I explain to them. They acknowledge that I've done all steps correct but seem to have no knowledge on how to fix my issues, it's me who seems to be the one trying to teach them because they just don't seem to grasp what's going on. They are very nice and I apologize for putting them down, but they don't seem to understand. Most likely will not be purchasing again.

I received my Total Boat Epoxy kit and was immediately impressed with the quality of the system. The kit came with both Resin and Hardener bottles plus the specialized pumps for each bottle to dispense the perfect amount of each product. The epoxy cured perfectly clear and looks great on my project.

Sets up good enough to sand in about 24 hours... Chrystal clear and only had to torch bubbles out one time. (Was used to fill knot holes in a table top)
