TotalBoat Thixo Wood 2.0 is a thickened epoxy adhesive that provides the same strength, convenience, and reliability of the original Thixo 2:1 epoxy system, but cures to a dark brown, wood-colored finish. It is ideal for filleting as well as stitch & glue bonding for wooden boat construction and restoration.
Thixo Wood 2.0 can be used both above and below the waterline on all types of wood. Once cured, the hardened epoxy is 100% waterproof, sandable & paintable.
This convenient point and shoot system comes in an easy to use 185ml adhesive cartridge that fits most standard caulking guns. Optimal working temperatures range from 55-80°F.
Made with over 25% renewable materials!
Each cartridge of Thixo Wood 2.0 includes two free static mixing tips. Additional 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 used Thixo Wood to repair ash gunwales on a Mad River canoe. It's about 25 years old and the original gunwales are stained dark like walnut. I spliced in a new section of ash and it had to be stained to match. Thixo filled in the gaps at the scarfs and between inwales and outwales. Good color match but smooth texture of Thixo reveals "not wood!" That's fine on a canoe of this age. Lot's left over. I mixed some on a scrap of wood and injected it into another spot on the gunwales where screws had no purchase. It's versatile stuff. But for small jobs like this I'll need to order several more mixing tips.

I made my pontoon boat deck a one piece unit with a 12" overlap between a 10' and 8' marine grade plywood. Then joined both halfs with bisquicks for 8' wide. All pieces sealed both sides with 2 coats of Totalboat penetrating epoxy.

I used this product on my 23' chinook,I needed to replace the box bilge hatch cover boards on one of deck hatches,the thixo epoxy worked great to glue the boards down,the only thing that surprised me was how hard it was getting to come out of the, I have strong hands I had to use both hands and it was barley coming out of the tube, it took longer than I thought it would,anyway it did the job.

I used Thixo Wood to fill and level water damaged, removable wood flooring in my dinghy. Sitting water after rains loosened and delaminated some of the knots in the original floor. This cause lifting of the surrounding areas. Thixo Wood performed very well, allowing excellent work time to allow working the product into the damaged areas. It's curing time was about 3 days to a better than original hardness. It sands easily and takes a primer and finish coat of Total Boat easily. Highly recommend the product and the help received from Jamestown Distributors.

I used the trick. It is cold in Ohio. I warmed up the tube before dispensing. And the application into gaps and scarfs went much faster and better than expected. And while on the edge of the temp range this morn the Thixo is setting up nicely. Very pleased.

Great for repairing rotted wood. The size of the tube is misleading though. The last third of the tube will not dispense.

I had a water issue that settled on wood that caused detereation of the wood. This product filled the void perfectly.

I was gluing sheets of plywood by myself. This allowed me to not worry about potlife time and was able to get everything positioned and clamped and cleaned up before it started to set. Also the color is alot lighter than west fairing pecan chips, so it blended with my Okume real well. Also I can use it without the nozzle for small batches to do the general fills and patches and still have the same consistency and color. Cant say enough good things about this. Set up time is alot longer, which is not a bad thing.

Easy to use

Bought a powerful 18x gun to dispense the epoxy. Used for three small projects and still have half of it left and it will keep. Bought extra mixing tubes/applicators (inexpensive and terrific).
