TotalBoat 5:1 Epoxy Kits include everything you need to tackle marine epoxy repairs and fiberglass projects. 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, 2 stir sticks, and 2 mixing pails.
System Group Sizes: A - Quart Kit; B - Gallon Kit; C - 4.5 Gallon Kit.
Note: Don't need the pumps, stir sticks 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. TotalBoat Crystal Clear 3:1 Epoxy may also be used for such applications.
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.
WARNING: The TotalBoat 5:1 Epoxy Slow Hardener can expose you to chemicals including bisphenol A, which is known to the State of California to cause female reproductive toxicity. For more information, go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov
