TotalBoat Thixo Low Viscosity just might be the perfect all-around adhesive. Its thinner, low-viscosity formula makes it ideal for laminating, filleting, and gluing. Use it as an adhesive to bond brick, concrete, cement, and composites. Use it as a sealant on sidewalks, seams, door frames, garage floors and steps. Fill cracks, holes, and seams. The number of applications are almost limitless.
Like all Thixo models, the Low Viscosity version (or 'LV') comes in a 185ml cartridge that fits most standard caulking guns. You simply attach included mixing tips and squeeze the caulking gun handle to dispense a bead of perfectly mixed translucent paste epoxy.
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 low viscosity epoxy to seal some leaking seams on a 30 year old aluminum boat with excellent results. I wire wheeled the seams, inside and out, then propped the boat up on its side and started at the highest point, Instead of using the included nozzle I mixed a small amount in a clear plastic disposable cup and fed it into the seam with an applicator I made - an old screwdriver sharpened to a point and bent 90 degrees. The Thixo was gooey enough that I could dip the applicator in and pick up enough to apply to a small area without dripping it all over, yet thin enough that it seeped into the very thin gap in the seam line. I kept doing this for 80 - 90% of the seam and let it flow downhill to fill it in. After it cured I did the subsequent seams, It cleans up very easy with lacquer thinner or MEK so the adjacent areas look pristine. A day later I primed it on the inside, looks great and rock solid!

I am repairing and replacing boards that have wood rot. I am using this to fill voids where I dug out the rot and treated the area with Smith's CPES and also using it to fill old screw holes on ribs so when I screw in new planks I don't have to worry about always hitting new wood with the screw. Cures hard as a rock. However, it says low viscosity, and they mean it. If you are working at even a slight incline and filling a hole, it drip and be difficult to fill the void. That's not a complaint, just a warning. Overall it's been a good product, easy to work with and a time saver. Too much waste in the nozzle but there's not much to be done about that.

Works good for my small project.

was able to repair a major wooden beam that would have been impossible to replace

worked good, served its purpose, dried overnite. easier than mixing things into epoxy esp when its hot and epoxy flashes quickly.

Low viscosity is an accurate claim! I needed to apply epoxy to a location that was not readily accessible. I attached about 15 inches of 1/4" polyethylene tubing to the end of the static mixing tip . . . and amazingly (with the help of a wire camera), I was able to apply the epoxy exactly where needed. I'm very pleased with Thixo LV, as well as Jamestown Distributors. I paid for the "rush order" fee and I received the product in two days - despite the fact that the delivery date was not mentioned in the checkout process.

Easy to work alone, little waste

I used this product to seal the lower edge of a sliding glass door with a concrete floor, to prevent rain water infiltration. So far, it's working great. After using, I soak the mixing nozzle in acetone, which effectively removes the epoxy and allows the nozzle to be reused. I believe it would be beneficial if a few additional sealing plugs were supplied with each tube, since they tend to get a bit mangled when removed.

Used it to repair a teak bowsprit. It was easy to use. Easy to clean up. And it dries hard as steel. I love this stuff and have recommended it to friends for home repair.

After several years of looking at & being irritated by a long, thin hairline crack in my workshop floor...I decided to do something about it because I plan on painting with an epoxy floor paint. I watched their 'Thixo' videos and was expecting it to be a very thick consistency. Instead it was fairly thin and easy to fill the crack without making a mess or wasting too much epoxy. It completely filled the crack, and you'll never know it was ever there once I paint.
