This product is comparable to other epoxies I have used and a little less expensive. It seems to take a while longer to set up than the West System products. The size I purchase, 25 oz , seems like it is used up and the resin, 127 oz, has some left over.

This was the first time I used this product line on a non-marine repair. Had wood repair on house bay window and the lateness of the season required use of a faster hardener to compensate for the lower temperature. Worked exactly as expected and I achieved same results as I have when working in mid summer.

Bought smallest size twice and used with 5:1 pump kit. Both times ran out of hardener way before resin. Not even close. Like plastic containers so may buy over west system but need for extra hardener makes it not cost effective. Used all in same day the second time so not a seepage out of the pump issue. Product is fine.

The calibrated pumps make it easy to use small or large amounts. It sets in an hour or two in warm weather so portioning is very helpful. I have learned to mask off surfaces around the work so I don't get spillage onto something I don't want. Drips and spills should be removed in bulk with a scraper ASAP then clean off with lacquer thinner. (So if it's an all ready painted surface, it should have been masked off). Otherwise it dries hard enough to sand. I learned that using gloves saves a lot of clean up time. If you don't and it's still tacky on your hands, lacquer thinner will work. If it dries, it will ware off eventually. I now use it for most all my woodworking joints.

Great for preparing to replace rub rail trim. Used to fill previously drilled 1/8" holes and ragged edges. Fiberglass cloth was used on torn edges for a tough sandable edge. Make sure ascertain correct temperature for slow, med, fast in terms of hardner.

This is the first time I used any type of resin. Based on a comparison with other products that friends have used, the TotalBoat hardener and epoxy can keep up with all the more expensive brands.
