Question

Question on your TotalBoat Thixo Fast Cure 2:1 Epoxy System (THIXOFC-K) are the tips reusable? And the mixing of the resin and hardner happens in the tips right?

Asked on 07/03/2018 by Wayne from CA

Top Answer

Hi Wayne, the solvent and time that it would take to clean a tip enough to reuse is not financially viable. It's just not worth it. We understand the issue and so we send all Thixo products with 2 tips with each tube. More tips can be purchased separately as well. The mixing tip is full of little chambers and as the resin and hardener flow through the static mixing tip, they mix adequately for application.

No. They are not. Order the multi pack of tips.

Answered on 07/03/2018 by jvelardo

Answer

The mixing of the resin and hardener occurs in the tips so after a while, the contents inside the tip will harden.

Answer

I haven't tried reusing a tip. It appeared to mix a little ways from the very tip so I think it would probably kick over. I bought a bunch of tips... I have had good luck with using one tube over several months on smaller applications. The stuff is awesome.

Answer

The tips are not reusable.  The mix happens in the tips.  Be sure to have a strong caulking gun as the mix is stiff.

Answer

No the tips are not reusable, but the main body is. So make sure you order some extra tips😉

Answer

Hi There, The tips are not re usable as the epoxy will harden inside them. When mounting the tip, I have found it worth while to be sure both resin side and hardener side are squeezed up full before hand. Sometimes there can be a bit of space on one side or the other. I had a small area of a fillet which did not harden well because of this. The partial tubes can be re capped and last quite well.

Answer

As far as I know they cannot be reused.The mixing does indeed take place in the tip, the two parts are spiraled around and mixed (an ingenious idea). BTW, it takes a lot of hand force on the calking applicator handle to squeeze the epoxy through the tip, perhaps an electric caulking applicator would be a good thing. Since the tips and tubes of epoxy are rather expensive, and the tips non reusable I have gone back to mixing epoxy from gallon jugs in plastic cups and applying with a flat stick, much cheaper and more control over epoxy by adding thickeners to each batch. Of course I'm usually mixing small batches for small boats. BD

Question

What is the shelf life of Thixo Fast cure after the cartridge has been half used assuming care was taken in replacing the stopper and cap? Is it still good as long as it comes out of the cartridge readily? Thanks

Asked on 04/02/2020 by Schroeder from undisclosed

Top Answer

Typically epoxy has a 12 month shelf life. As long as it dispenses, it should be good, however if it's really old you should try a test mix first.

Question

I have some Thixo Fast Cure and some Total Boat High Performance Resin with slow hardener. I want to lay some fiberglass mat and wet it out with the High Performance resin with slow hardener and then add a layer of the Thixo fast cure to set in a piece of balsa for a deck repair. Will those two resin products be compatible? Thanks

Asked on 04/02/2020 by Schroeder from undisclosed

Top Answer

Yes. You should let the lamination cure, then sand and clean before adhering the balsa.

why can this product not be used to fill gaps?

Asked on 07/10/2017 by linda from undisclosed

Top Answer

Because it cannot be applied over 1/2" thick because it will generate heat as it cures at thicknesses over 1/2", use the regular Thixo not the Fast Cure.

Thinking about using Thiox Fast Cure to construct plywood dinghies with my students. Two things: How are the fumes from this product? And, how long of a bead can I expect to get from a tube?

Asked on 01/03/2015 by Tom Washburn

Top Answer

There isn't much smell. A 1/4" bead will do about 15 linear feet in the 185 ml tube.
