Product Details

TotalBoat High Performance Epoxy cures more clearly, making it ideal for clear coating projects that showcase the beauty of wood, or carbon fiber's attention-getting texture. Its flex properties make it the natural choice for wooden boat construction and repairs. This lower viscosity system wets out fiberglass easily. No blush means no messy, tedious washdowns between coats. The low-VOC, low-odor formula is suitable for indoor or shop use.

Pair High Performance Resin with your choice of Slow, Medium, or Fast hardeners that let you optimize pot life & cure time for the conditions. Simple 2:1 mix ratio produces a proper cure in a wide range of temperatures for layups, sealing, laminating, & vacuum bagging. Combine with fillers for a high-strength gluing, filleting, or fairing compound.

Info & Guides
TotalBoat High Performance Epoxy Resin and High Performance Non-Blushing Hardeners cure to an ultra-clear, glossy, blush-free finish that produces exceptional results for hand layups, laminating, and clear coating.

High Performance Resin and Hardeners can be measured in one of three ways:

  • By weight
  • By volume
  • Using the TotalBoat 2:1 Epoxy Pumps

High Performance Epoxy Resin System Benefits

Low Viscosity Resin: This low-viscosity epoxy resin saturates fiberglass fibers quickly, easily, and completely to reduce the amount of material, time, and labor needed for layups, laminating, and vacuum bagging.

Three Hardener Speeds to Control Cure Time: Fast, Medium, and Slow High Performance Hardeners allow you to control the pot life and cure times to suit your particular working conditions. For example, the High Performance Fast Hardener cures the fastest at room temperature, and can even cure overnight in low temperatures (minimum 55°F). Even better, you can craft your ideal working properties and pot life by combining the different hardeners with each other, but always remember to maintain the proper ratio of 2 parts resin to 1 part hardener by volume.

More Flexible Cure: The High Performance Epoxy System cures to a more flexible finish than traditional resins, too, making it a better choice for wooden boats and kayaks that typically flex during use, as well as expand and contract with changes in temperature and humidity.

Blush-Free: This non-blushing system eliminates the time consuming washdowns between coats typically needed when using traditional 5:1 resin systems.

Low Odor, Low VOC Content—Better for You and the Environment: Low-VOC, low-odor formula is better for use indoors or outdoors. The low VOC content is especially good for use in areas with environmental restrictions.

How to Use TotalBoat High Performance Epoxy Resin

TotalBoat High Performance Epoxy Resin can be combined with any of our TotalBoat High Performance Hardeners (Fast, Medium, and Slow) for exceptional results.

TotalBoat epoxy resin and hardeners are packaged and labeled according to group sizes (A, B, C) to ensure you have enough material for your project at the best value.

Clear-coating applications: High Performance Epoxy Resin and Hardeners are clear in color and are ideally suited for clear-coating applications.

Resin and Hardeners can be measured either by pouring or by using the calibrated TotalBoat 2:1 Epoxy Pumps.

Personal Safety: For your safety, please be sure to wear protective gloves and eye, face, and clothing protection when working with epoxy resin and hardeners. Also, be sure your work area has adequate ventilation.


USING THE TOTALBOAT 2:1 PUMPS FOR DISPENSING TOTALBOAT HIGH PERFORMANCE EPOXY RESIN AND HARDENERS

The procedure for dispensing TotalBoat High Performance Resin and any of the High Performance Hardeners properly is ALWAYS ONE full pump of resin to ONE full pump of hardener. TotalBoat pump sets are calibrated to dispense the accurate mix ratio automatically.

IMPORTANT! Proper mix ratios are critical when working with epoxy resin and hardeners in order to achieve a proper cure.

★ TotalBoat High Performance Epoxy Resin used with TotalBoat High Performance Fast Hardener, TotalBoat High Performance Medium Hardener, or TotalBoat High Performance Slow Hardener is mixed at a ratio of 2 parts resin to 1 part hardener by volume.

TotalBoat 2:1 Epoxy Pumps are calibrated to dispense the proper mix ratio of TotalBoat High Performance Epoxy Resin and TotalBoat High Performance Hardener automatically.

  • Use the TotalBoat 2:1 Epoxy Pump Set when using TotalBoat High Performance Epoxy Resin with:
    • TotalBoat High Performance Fast Hardener
    • TotalBoat High Performance Medium Hardener
    • TotalBoat High Performance Slow Hardener
This pump set has a blue dot on the resin pump, and a red dot on the hardener pump. These colors correspond to the cap colors for the resin and hardener.

Remember, the procedure for dispensing TotalBoat High Performance Resin and High Performance Hardener properly is always ONE full pump of resin to ONE full pump of hardener.

When using the pump dispensing method for measuring TotalBoat High Performance Epoxy Resin and TotalBoat High Performance Fast Hardener, TotalBoat High Performance Medium Hardener, or TotalBoat High Performance Slow Hardener, use ONLY the TotalBoat 2:1 Epoxy Pumps. These pumps are calibrated to dispense the accurate 2:1 mix ratio automatically. DO NOT use pumps from any other manufacturer; DO NOT use the TotalBoat 5:1 or 3:1 Epoxy Pumps.

NOTE: Adding more hardener does not make the epoxy set faster. It throws off the mix ratio and will not cure properly.

PRIME THE RESIN AND HARDENER PUMPS BEFORE DISPENSING

Push down and release the head of each pump several times until you get a steady stream of liquid without any air pockets.

COLD WEATHER OPERATION: Cold temperatures make the viscosity of resin and hardeners increase and may require more force to pump thicker materials. Excessive force on either one of the plunger heads however, may also cause the pumps to break. Dispensing material in 60-70°F is recommended for optimal pump performance.

In cooler temperatures, warming the containers prior to pumping will decrease the epoxy viscosity, making materials pump more easily.

MIXING

After dispensing resin and hardener into a plastic mixing pot, use a wooden stir stick to mix thoroughly.

Many uses of 2:1 HP Epoxy
By Frankie D from Tiverton, R.I.

Verified Purchase

I have used 2:1 for laminating fiberglass, clear coating, fairing and filleting and works great. The wife wanted me to make a small raised garden for herbs only. I had some 2 x 12 cutoffs and used them with s/s legs and washers. When I assembled the box I had 4 large sawn cut edges that would absorb water like a sponge. I didn't have any penetrating epoxy only 2:1 & 5:1. I mixed a small batch of 2:1 epoxy and resin only for the full 3 minutes and then added 1 part mixture of denatured alcohol which thin it to lower viscosity. I applied 2-3 coats and allowed 3 days to cure and it worked great to seal those exposed cut edges. Happy wife happy life.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

First time use
By JJ from central NC

Verified Purchase

This was very simple to use. Re-read the directions carefully concerning the batch size. I had some left over I used on my fiberglass fishing boat. Initial use was a re modeling of a step to a pool.

fiberglass mat and resin spread over flat area to tie in to perpendicular sides.

Absolutely the best stuff I have ever used.
By Bill from Owls Head, ME

Had a little bit of trouble with first batch. Called Jamestown Distributors and three different representatives reached out to help me. Turned I used the wrong epoxy (my error). After getting the right resin and hardener, I scuff sanded the bar top and re--applied. Perfect!!! Great product but take your time. After skim coats on top and bottom of the bar top (two days, then four more days for the pour coat to harden all is well. Follow directions.to a tee. Super support through the company.

Be careful using this for river tables!
By Todd from Tulsa, OK

Verified Purchase

I didn't do my research throughly enough, so I had the impression it was safe to do 1/2" pours with this material, and I did so with a 1" thick river table. Two pours of 1/2" each, and the second pour was done when the first one had thickened enough that it was gummy (about two hours). Unfortunately, the exothermic reaction of the two layers was enough to cause the resin to separate from the epoxy - that's my theory - and cause the resin to ooze up along the edges of the pour and out across the surface of the table. Two weeks after the pour, the material was still soft and sticky, so I wrote off the project. A call to the company's tech support revealed that this material should be poured no more than 1/4" at a time, and I should have waited at least 4 hours in between pours. It would have been nice had this information been posted in the web site's description of the resin. The deep pour resin probably would have been better, but when I typed "river table" into the search feature of the company's web site, the high performance resin was what came up. As it is, I'll be looking elsewhere for epoxy for my next river table.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

Loved this resin: clear, quick to harden and no bubbles!
By Jilllovesbellaresin from Pittsburgh, PA

Verified Purchase

I have tried 10 different types of resin so far and this one is my favorite. I use it for crafting and making geodes, coasters, trinket trays, bookmarks, keychains and magnets. There is no odor, it's thinning making it super easy to pour, no bubbles, and crystal clear. My pieces were hard within a few hours and unable to unmold in 12 hours. I am Very happy with this and highly recommend it to any crafter working with resin,

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

River Table Quality
By Joe - BlueLine WoodWorks from Wake Forest, NC

Verified Purchase

I used almost 10 gallons of Total Boat in a recent epoxy dining table build and it worked great. Most people think you have to use a "deep pour" system for larger tables, but my latest project proved that Total Boat can get it done!

Good epoxy
By Stn from Cape Cod

Verified Purchase

Total Boat "High Performance" 2:1 epoxy seems to be the same as System-3 2:1. I haven't tried mixing the two brands yet, so I don't know if they are identical. The performance is similar to 5:1, I can't really tell the difference, perhaps a little less blush from the 2:1. The cost ends up pretty similar. I favor the 2:1 because it's easier to measure without pumps, especially in small batches.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
