SilverTip Laminating Resin is designed specifically for laminating. It is a med-low viscosity, liquid epoxy system that has been optimized for coating and reinforcing fabric saturation in wood-composite boatbuilding. Fast wet-out, no blush, and cures to a brilliant, colorless finish.
Working time is longer than most boat building epoxies, without sacrificing cure time. Cured film is tough and resilient with better heat resistance than other room temperature cured epoxies.
Each SilverTip kit includes 1 gallon of laminating resin, 1/2 gallon of either fast or slow hardener and a set of calibrated plungers for dispensing.

Number Of Parts:
The coverage rate of this product is 150 SF. Is that per coat? I have read that three coats are recommended for laminating mat on new plywood. Would I need 3 kits to do 3 coats on a boat that is right at 150 SF of hull?
Are you just using the resin or is there glass being put down as well?
Clear finish, no yellow tint
I use decorative inlays of all shades of cedar and redwood on the decks of my cedar strip kayaks. The clear finish of Silver Tip resin allows the true color of the wood to come through. Definitely enhances the true beauty of the wood compared to other resins.

This is my favorite epoxy.
Unless you need maximum strength, or ultra-low viscosity, this is the one to use. No blush, good strength, no post-cure required, and it doesn't trap bubbles. It will bond to bare glass extremely well. I just don't like the fact that it has an odd mix ratio (if you do it by weight, 100 parts resin to 43 part hardener).
