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.

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 use the Epoxy System in my woodwork shop and the System has worked beyond expectations. When it comes to epoxy many say they are the best, but Total Boat proves it.

If you need some epoxy and don't feel like dragging out the two part bottles and mixing up a batch, buy this product. It works fast, it is easy to use, and can be resealed. I always have a couple of tubes on hand so I can quickly get a small job done. It us worth every penny when you are trying to get things done quickly.

I have a wood , metal clad patio door that was rotting from the inside. It would have been $2000 to replace. Watching Lou Sauzedde gave me the confidence to try an Epoxy repair for the first time. Since the exterior metal cladding was in good shape, I attacked the repair from inside, removing all the rotted wood and replacing it with new wood coated in LV This and bedded in 2:1. It worked like a charm and we finished off with total Fair. Saved $1900 in the process.

Rebuilding a 1988 Boston Whaler, one of the things that was in need of replacement was a damaged rub rail. Once the old rub rail was removed the previous owner did not seal the old pop rivet holes. Called Jamestown and talked to Tom who recommend Thixo, product work well both vertically and horizontally, no sagging or shrinkage. Easy to work with and forgiving. Great customer support. Will purchase products from Jamestown in the future.

I obtained a tube of Thixo to bond sole boards together for my wineglass wherry. Thixo is an ideal consistency, so it can be applied to surfaces without concern for it oozing out of position before it cures. And, it will tie together surfaces with too much clearance, up to perhaps 3/16". My no. 1 concern was getting the two parts to mix properly. I squeezed out a ribbon of three inches to start the mixing. And when I checked that ribbon a couple of hours later, it had not started to set. So, when the instructions say "three to four inches" of priming, I will in the future not scrimp. I noticed that Thixo seemed to take several hours to start to set. However, by the next morning it was setting nicely, and a day later it was firm. Because of the need to squander expensive stuff to prime the output, when faced with a need for just a few dabs of glue a couple days later, I mixed regular resin with some filler. In retrospect, I should have controlled my miserly urge to conserve, and just squandered another mixing nozzle and a buck's worth of wasted resin. All in all, Thixo did a nice job, and it was handy having a mixing tube and nozzle combined with a caulking gun. The relatively slow curing rate means there is plenty of time to get large pieces coated and positioned.

I am installing a new sign, using 6"x 6" posts, 40" in the ground. I very liberty coated the area going in the ground m, let dry for a few days and painted the posts with primer and a finish coat. Great product for protecting the wood from rot. Bob Wallace
