TotalBoat Tropical Epoxy Kits are ideal when you need extra slow cure time in normal temperature conditions to complete large-scale or intricate laminating, layup, coating, & bonding projects. These convenient kits also provide the required working time in extremely warm & humid conditions.
Project-ready kits contain TotalBoat Traditional Epoxy Resin & TotalBoat Tropical Hardener, plus everything you need for accurate measuring and mixing: instructions, mixing pots, and stir sticks.
Kits are available in Group Size A (Quart Kit) and Group Size B (Gallon Kit), and are packaged to save money and reduce waste.
Note: Due to the COVID-19 Emergency, we are currently experiencing a shortage of epoxy pumps. We have temporarily removed pumps from Tropcial Epoxy Kits and are offering kits at a special reduced price.

Directions: TotalBoat Tropical 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 Tropical 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 Tropical Hardener, or (3) BY WEIGHT: Measure 100A:28B.
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.
NOTE: 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.
