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 are currently experiencing a shortage of epoxy pumps. We have temporarily removed pumps from Crystal Clear Epoxy Kits and are offering kits at a special reduced price.
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.

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 can be dispensed by pouring or using the included pump. This pump is calibrated to work with the TotalBoat Traditional Epoxy System.
IMPORTANT: When using the pumps, ONE PUMP of TotalBoat Epoxy Resin is calibrated to mix with ONE PUMP of TotalBoat Crystal Clear Hardener. Prime this pump by pumping until a steady flow of hardener comes out. DO NOT USE THIS PUMP WITH ANY OTHER HARDENERS.
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 three ways to measure: (1) Use the calibrated pumps and the measuring is done automatically, (2) BY VOLUME: Measure THREE parts TotalBoat Epoxy RESIN to ONE part TotalBoat Crystal Clear Hardener, or (3) 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.
