TotalBoat 5:1 Epoxy Kits include everything you need to tackle marine epoxy repairs and fiberglass projects. The five part resin to one part hardener ratio is considered the traditional marine epoxy system of choice for projects like bonding, coating, fairing, filleting, and laminating.
Complete project-ready epoxy kits includes: TotalBoat 5:1 epoxy resin; your choice of either fast or slow TotalBoat hardener; calibrated epoxy pumps that dispense the right ratio of resin and hardener, and 2 mixing pails.
System Group Sizes: A - Quart Kit; B - Gallon Kit; C - 4.5 Gallon Kit.
Note: Don't need the pumps or mixing cups? Gallon size kits are also available with just resin & hardener included. This 'no frills' version makes sense if you just need more epoxy.

|Should I use this for clear-coating applications?||No||No|
For clear-coating applications, or where an ultra clear cure is important, we recommend TotalBoat High Performance 2:1 Epoxy.
For extra long pot life and working time, use TotalBoat Tropical Epoxy.
Tip: Wash cured epoxy with water, scrubbing lightly with a Scotch-Brite pad to remove any amine blush prior to over=coating or painting.
Always wear protective clothing and equipment to protect your eyes, skin, and lungs when working with TotalBoat Traditional Epoxy Resin and Hardeners. Personal protective clothing should include appropriate gloves, safety glasses or goggles, a proper respirator, and a proper apron or similar protective clothing.

I'm a DIY boat owner out of necessity, I couldn't afford my boat if I didn't do all repairs and upgrades myself. But I also really enjoy working on boats and have found Totalboat products to be my default "go-to" materials of choice. The quality is excellent, pricing is quite fair and their support is just great. I've used gallons of this epoxy over many years (and several boats) and have never been disappointed, I hope to keep using it for years to come!!!!!!!!!!!

I purchased this product to fill in some holes in my transom. I could have used 3M 5200 as a cheap seal, but epoxy is harder and more resilient. It also works well when using a syringe to inject into the holes. The 5:1 pump mixing technique works great! It makes mixing easy and is less messy.

I purchased this to adhere two 8" wide cypress boards together on their faces to make two boat oars. I had never used this product before and didn't know how much to mix or how it would go. My boards were 8 feet long. So I pumped enough to fill their mixing containers half full. This was based on the coverage they stated for a gallon. I stirred it and then applied it with a foam brush. When I was finished with one board, I had only used about 1/4 of the mixed resin. So I applied it to the other board too. Then I put the 2 boards together and started clamping. A lot of spill wipped upwith paper towels. I expected this stuff to get hot so I set the mixed container inside the other mixing container they provided and set it on the floor. As I was finishing cleaning up, I noticed the sides of both mixing cups bulging from the heat. I have an infared thermometer so I aimed it at the mixed surplus. It registered 233 degrees. I let the boards sit in the clamps for 7 days. I removed the clamps and cut out the oars. The joints look very good. I didn't know how to store the remaining unused surplus solution that had the pumps in it. So I just left the pumps in the bottles and set them back into the big zip loc bag. I wish they would include instructins for how to store the leftover - remove the pumps or leave them in the bottles?

The product worked exactly as intended and the mix was perfect thanks to the pumps specifically designed to give you the perfect mix.

I have never used epoxy before and I'm now deep into a boat floor repair. I don't have anything to compare to, but this product it's everything I needed.

Because you can use the mix 5.1 graph on the side of the mixing cup is better.. Also does not come with the stir sticks pictured..

I was very pleased with the results I had using this product to repair several canoes. The delivery was very quick. The calibrated pumps worked well. The directions were clear. I found that it was easy to use by brush and squeegee spreader. I plan on using it more to maintain a fleet of canoes and Sunfish.

I was asked to make book covers of wood for a friends art project. I ended up making 3 layer plywood held together and flat with your epoxy. Slick easy to use system and product.
