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.

Compare to MAS Low-Viscosity Epoxy and System Three Epoxy. You'll find our High Performance epoxy system combines the best characteristics of each: its low-viscosity is incredibly user-friendly for wetting out fiberglass cloth in layups, it cures clear to showcase the natural beauty of wood and has greater flexibility than 5:1 systems, which makes it a perfect fit for wooden boat, canoe, or kayak builds.

High Performance Epoxy 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, and BPA-Free—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. The cured epoxy surface is also BPA-free, making it safer for potential contact with food.

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 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 Epoxy 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 plain white pump head for the resin pump, and a white pump head with a black 2:1 dot on the hardener pump.

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.

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, and that you wear a proper respirator.

Solid as a rock
By Richard from Lincoln City, OR

Verified Purchase

I used this product to rebuilt and reinforce the end of a dry rotted been in my deck. After removing the rotted wood I applied the penetrating resin, reinforced the open cavity with new pressure treated lumber then poured the high performance resin into the small voids to fill. It worked as advertised and the beam is structurally sound once again.

Surgery complete
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

I would and will be using this again
By PegLeg Pete from Madison, Alabama

This was my first attempt with Epoxy Resin of any type and I dove into doing river poor on corn hole boards. They came out great and I am very pleased with the product and will be using this again. Next attempt will be on an actual River table deep poor.

highly recommmend
By Bill from Worcester, MA

Verified Purchase

I have used this product multiple times and it is fantastic. I have never used it in a marine application however. All of my use has been on homeowner projects with wood in areas that are very difficult to replace. I even used it to repair some wooden gutters and it did a fantastic job, much better than the original linseed oil.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Excellent product
By Jeff from Muskegon, mi

Verified Purchase

This material helped me fix damage on the keel of my Mainship 34. I was quoted $7500 to have the repair done professionally. I did the repair myself for around $500 in tools and materials. The tutorials online gave me the confidence to tackle this project myself and save a lot of money. The kit is complete and very straight forward to use.

Great product for beginner!!
By SC from Connecticut

Verified Purchase

This was a great product to use on my Starcraft Seafarer 14 restoration. The premeasured pumps make mixing very easy. Product worked great for what I have used it for. Definitely ensure you order more than you think you'll need as I found there was always squeeze out or overflow.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
