TotalBoat Thixo is a thickened epoxy adhesive that gives you the reliability and strength of a modern 2:1 epoxy system in an easy to use 185ml cartridge. This convenient point and shoot system is ideal for bonding wood, metal and fiberglass above or below the waterline.
Thixo cartridges fit most standard caulking guns. Lay a bead of this non-sagging adhesive to vertical or overhead surfaces. TotalBoat Thixo cures to a hard, translucent surface that can be drilled, painted, or sanded. This no-mess, no-hassle versatile 2:1 epoxy system comes equipped with two free static mixing tips to ensure accurate mix ratio upon application every time. Ideal working temperatures range from 50-80 degrees F.
Cartridges are available individually and in packs of (6) cartridges. Additional mixing tips sold separately.
Note: For use in manual caulking guns only. Do not use with pneumatic gun.

NOTE: Thixo cartridges have a slightly offset nozzle that fits most, but not all, caulk guns. Caulking applicators used with Thixo need to have a hole large enough for the mixing tip; cartridges won't fit applicators with only a small hole for the nozzle. For best results, use a caulk gun with an 8 to 1 thrust ratio or higher.

I have been using Thixo for years, and it was always a great product. Until now. Recent batch of six purchased 14Apr23 left me with pockets of uncured or partially cured resin throughout my project. I am always very careful to start each tube correctly. Something else is wrong. Either the new green mixing tips are faulty or there were air pockets in the hardener tube resulting in improper mix ratio or none at all. While pumping the product with Newborn 18:1 gun, there were moments of reduced effort required. Product was warm when applied. I cannot recommend this product until problem is identified and corrected.

It worked for what I needed it for

The catalyst was not full and when you mix you must waste 5" of dispensed product to get proper mix. Hard to trust the mixer. I had to tear a product apart and start over. If you get the correct mix the material sets up as designed.

Met my expectations

Used Thixo for all my bonding connects for my stringers and ribs in the restoration of my custom 260 Shamrock. Highly recommend. Easy to use and even easier clean up!

GOOD STUFF......BUT COST LIMITS USAGE

So this product is great but it says it's no sag and sets up in 30 minutes with a 24 hour cure time. It didn't quite work out like that. But aside from a little last minute adjusting to support my project this stuff bonds great once cured. I would strongly recommend it to anyone.

Very easy to use. Doesn't go as far as you think. You only use about 1/2 of the tube.
