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.

THIXO worked as advertised. I used it to join (and fill) castle joints for a table using 6X6 legs and 3X4 rails made of re-purposed utility pole parts. My only surprise was that the tube ran out with half the plunger rod still protruding from the caulking gun. Upon careful thought, it all makes sense. Fortunately I had enough to complete the job.

Thixit works very well and is very convenient to use, but it is quite expensive. The tube size is misleading because only half the tube actually contains material. Avoiding the necessity to mix putty can be very helpful when one is working alone, and this factor can justify the high cost.

easy to use. Not a lot of material in the tube due to two-part self-mixing. Not as cost-effective as mixing it yourself. very controllable so you don't make a mess filling joints.

I was pleased how it flowed and dried, and gave me working time.

This is a very easy to use product with a well thought out self mixing system that dispenses very nice , clean and controllable and has a resealable screw on cap. But it is very expensive for the amount you get. It looks like a full size tube but is only about half filled approx 6 oz. or so ? Had a decent amount of setup / working time and cured well and was easy to sand the next day. it,s a good product for certain applications like squirting into holes etc. and it clings and stays put where you put it !

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.
