TotalBoat Thixo Gap Control is specifically formulated for structural bonding applications. This two-component, fast-setting thickened epoxy adhesive prevents too much epoxy from squeezing out when clamping pressure is applied.
It contains tiny glass spacer beads that ensure a minimum bond line thickness of .02 inches, controlling the gap to keep material thickness constant while curing. Thixo Gap Control is great for gluing laminates & skins, and ideal for high-strength deck to hull bonding.
Available in a convenient 450 ml cartridge with 2 static mixing tips. Extra tips are available in 2-packs & quantities of 12 or 60.
NOTE: To dispense Thixo Gap, you'll need our PRO Gun (see dropdown menu), a manual, two-component applicator with a powerful 26:1 trigger ratio that lets you lay down a perfect bead exactly where you need it.

Thixo Gap Control Adhesive is our solution to the problem of glue-starved joints caused when clamping pressure squeezes out too much epoxy during bonding applications.
This large 450 ml dual resin & hardener cartridge gives you more thickened epoxy and no hassle. It's ideal for large structural bonding projects and structural repairs above and below the waterline. The non-sagging formula hangs in place on vertical or overhead surfaces. It cures fast at room temperature to a hard surface that can be sanded, drilled, or painted.
Ideal working temperatures for Thixo Gap range from 55-80°F.
Thixo Gap fits a dual-cartridge 2:1 dispensing gun (resin 300ml + hardener 150ml), such as our PRO Gun (see dropdown menu). Additional tips sold separately.
IMPORTANT! Thixo Gap is not intended for use as a gap filler, and should not be applied with a material thickness over 1/2 inch. For an excellent gap-filling adhesive, use TotalBoat Thixo PRO (450 ml cartridge) or TotalBoat Thixo (185 ml cartridge).
