Teakdecking Systems TDS Bonding Epoxy (FE180A) is a custom blend of high quality epoxy resins, activators and additives formulated for outstanding adhesion to common marine substrates such as fiberglass, wood, aluminum and steel.
Developed as a 'tough' adhesive capable of enduring the flexing yachts undergo at sea, FE180A has special additives that enhance internal strength, bond strength and viscosity control under a variety of adverse environmental conditions. Its primary purpose is to achieve a high strength bond to less than perfectly prepared substrates. TDS Fitting Epoxy is also D.O.T. (US Dept. Of Transportation) certified to be non-corrosive and is designed not to harm the environment.

I am edge gluing 10/4 teak boards to each other, would you recommend this product or staying with a thinner epoxy such as MAS or West?
Hi, for this application I would stick with West Syst or MAS used with appropriate type and amount of filler because of consistency of TDS. My two cents...
I'd use something thinner.I used this for bonding straight teak to an uneven fiberglass floor. it filled the voids and bonded well.
I would go with a thinner epoxy... I use MAS. The Teakdecking Systems Bonding Epoxy is too thick for this application.
I am installing a teck deck for the cockpit open area ( 5' x 6' ) in my chris craft 20' speedster. the decking is aprox 3/8 x 2 strips with teak caulk . the deck area is broken up into different size and shape panels. all panel will be pre-assembled before installation into boat. I want for bond the deck panels to the fiberglass flooring without any screws. What do you recommend?thanks. john
it holds well without screws. you're are correct you'll need to pre-fit.
I have a '68 Choey Lee. I removed the teak and recored the deck and refiberglassed. I now want to glue the old teak deak back down. The back of the teak has a black compound. I have scraped the material off (rather hard but sticky), but the wood is still impregnated with the black compound. Is this adhesive the best one for this job?
Stephen,I used the two part bonding epoxy on the steps of my 2001 54' Ocean Alexander when I redid the teak while painting the boat last winter. It was easy to use and seems to hold tight without any problems. I must say that I do not want to be the one who has to remove it someday. Just be careful not to get it on any of the surrounding areas.
You must determine what the old Black adhesive is firstMy guess is that someone used a seam compound where they shouldn't have to hold the Teak Down. I would highly recomend taking theTeak to a Cabinet Shop and have them put it through a Timesaver Sanding type machine to completely remove all the old adhesive. Then yes Teak Decking Systems is the best choice to put the Teak back down. I would be happy to do it for you but I am on Martha's vineyard feel free to call me 508-627-8941Tom Taylor
what is the coverage /gal?
I updated the coverage/gal to JD webpage. Please see for answer to your question. thanks
I added the open time. Please see JD webpage for info thanks
its the stuff!
I used this to install 3 teak decks, it's been on for 5 years now with no problems what so ever. Great stuff.
Worked well with long working time.Just hard to mix .
