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. 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

I do not understand how something this expensive could be sold where you don't have enough hardener to match up with the epoxy. Very disappointed. Unless I did something wrong I'm very upset. What little I did get does a great job, I am just confused, the "kit" was supposed to make it easier not make me be stuck with epoxy and no hardener to go with it…..

The epoxy and hardener are great. My issue is with the containers. They collapse as you're trying to pump . 5 stars with better containers.

Easy to mix and use to seal the strip canoe and to wet out the fiberglass cloth.

Loved it better than the others I have bought

used to repair soft/waterlogged deck. Worked great with coosa board and it's strong. Ran out near the end and bought cheap epoxy. The difference is that the Total Boat was slightly thicker and it makes a difference. Used West system in the past... couldn't tell the difference except that total boat is less expensive. use it.

The pump for the hardener was still too long after cutting off the recommended length.

Remember that the pumps are already calibrated to the right formula so its really a one pump to one pump.

This was my first experience using a 2 part epoxy. Generally, everything went well with the application. Since this was my first time it was hard to tell when the epoxy was fully cured because the surface remained tacky. I waited 48+ hours with my first pour because of the tacky residue. After I wiped it off, I discovered that it was just a residue so I only waited 24 hours for my next pour to cure and it worked perfectly. The only real complaint that I have is that the resin was so thick that when I used the supplied pump the bottle would crush. I ended up holding the bottle by the handle and then pushing down on the pump. This worked but was not ideal. I was mixing and applying at temperatures between 55 and 40 so that probably contributed to my difficulty with the pump. This project was for a transom replacement on a '92 Crestliner Sportfish 170.
