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 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.

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.

By The Crafting Nook from South Carolina

I recently done a video for my YouTube audience and they loved the outcome. While I was getting familiar with the product I noticed that you really don't need to dreadfully wait all day for it to cure. I would totally recommend using this product.

Mixed results. Mostly fails
By Kenny D from Louisville CO

Verified Purchase

This is only the second brand of resin I have used for turning. This resin gets really hot and deformed the lighter plastic I used as molds. It also melted the hot glue so there was leaking in places. There were also a good number of cracks or fractures in the cured resin. I am not counting out operator error. Still have lots to learn. Any advice is welcomed.

Definitely would buy again.
By Banjoman47 from Fredericksburg, VA

Verified Purchase

First time using the high performance epoxy. Read the directions and follow them! When this stuff kicks.....it kicks fast! I repaired a wood toe rail with this product and am very pleased with the results. Sanding was easy using a coarse rasp then down to final sanding with an electric palm sander. Great product. If you need longer working time, this is not for you. Buy the regular epoxy. I've used both and will use again depending upon the project.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

TotalBoat for the win
By DerkaDesigns from Killeen, TX

Verified Purchase

On a recent project for a client, I had to figure out how to protect the laser engraved photo that was being inlayed into the walnut cutting board/ Charcuterie board. I came across total boat high-performance epoxy, it was my first time using epoxy and I have to say it came out great.

Finished product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
