TotalBoat Polyester Structural Repair Putty makes critical bonding applications on polyester laminates easy, strong, and permanent. Its trowelable, thixotropic formula spreads smoothly & won't sag, making it great for fairing vertical surfaces. Polyester Structural Repair Putty is also easy to shape, so it's ideal for radius forming.
Reinforced with long strand milled glass fibers, this high-strength, fast-setting marine bonding putty adds strength & dimensional stability to structural, boat building & repair applications including bedding and tooling. Great for reinforced bonding on hulls, decks & stringers, and multi-purpose bonding on FRP composites, core materials, and wood. Add 1-2% MEKP catalyst based on mass, ambient conditions, and desired working time.
Available in Quart and Gallon Kits that include MEKP catalyst, and 1 spreader.
|Technical Specifications||TotalBoat Polyester Structural Repair Putty|
|Application Temperature||50°F - 95°F|
|Catalyst||Catalyze with 1-2% MEKP, based on mass, ambient conditions, and desired working time. More catalyst will shorten working time, but will maintain working time at cooler temperatures.|
|Working Time||For a 100g mass, catalyze with 1% MEKP for approximately 15-20 minutes of working time at 70°F (14 drops of MEKP catalyst per ounce of Polyester Structural Repair Putty).|
|Cure Time||Dependent on temperature, catalyst amount, and mass of putty. For example, cure time will be 20-30 minutes for 100g mass catalyzed with 1% MEKP @ 77°F|
|Shelf Life/Stability||Approximately 3-4 months (can be longer, depending on storage conditions). Keep container closed tightly, and store in a cool (below 75°F), well-ventilated place.|
TotalBoat Polyester Structural Repair Putty uses a premium resin reinforced with long strand milled glass fibers for strength and impact resistance. In addition to structural bonding, bedding, and tooling applications, it's perfect for filling larger voids and gouges that are too deep for cosmetic fairing compound.
This high-strength polyester putty is engineered for structural bonding, filling, & fairing, not for cosmetic filling and fairing. For cosmetic fairing and repairs requiring a fine finish, use TotalBoat Polyester Fairing Compound over cured Polyester Structural Repair Putty. Allow the Polyester Fairing Compound to cure, then sand to achieve an extremely smooth surface ready for gelcoat or paint.

Uses for TotalBoat Polyester Structural Repair Putty
Always wear protective gloves, protective clothing, eye protection, and face protection when working with TotalBoat Polyester Structural Repair Putty. Personal protective clothing should include appropriate gloves, safety glasses or goggles, a proper respirator, and a proper apron or similar protective clothing. Keep away from heat, hot surfaces, sparks, open flames, and other ignition sources. No smoking. Only use outdoors or in a well-ventilated area. Store in a cool, well-ventilated place (below 75°F). Do not handle until all safety precautions have been read and understood.
Polyester resins have a limited shelf life and will, over time, harden in the container without the addition of catalyst. Shelf life is dependent on a number of factors such as product formulation and storage conditions. As a general rule, the shelf life for uncatalyzed polyester resins should be up to 6 months when stored in dry, cool conditions below 70°F. Warm to above 60°F before use.
