TotalBoat FlexEpox is a tough, 2-part flexible epoxy adhesive used to create permanent structural bonds that dynamically absorb stresses from contraction, expansion, shock, & vibration, and bend without breaking. Use on fiberglass, metal, plastic, and wood—even hard-to-glue, oily domestic and tropical hardwoods. Great for repairing aluminum boats, too.
Simple 1:1 mix ratio, 75-minute working time, & fast cure time make it easy to use and ideal for quick repairs. Also for creating small laminated parts subject to a lot of flexing.
FlexEpox works in a wide temperature range, from 40 to 125°F, and can be applied to damp surfaces. It can even cure underwater. Pair with TotalBoat fillers to suit your application.
Available in an 8 oz. kit and a 32 oz. kit. BONUS: Each kit includes 2 16 oz. mixing pots, and 2 stir sticks.

Compare to two-part West System G/Flex 650. TotalBoat FlexEpox maintains its form and properties better at higher temperatures, and is a better value. It also has higher flex tolerances and lasts longer than flexible, one-part urethane adhesives and sealants.

would this product be good for sealing rivets on an aluminum boat
Yes but check out this link first: https://www.jamestowndistributors.com/userportal/show_product.do?pid=336175
How well does this adhere to high density polyethylene?
Epoxy generally does not adhere well to HDPE.
Can this product be used to glue wooden chair rungs? I have used several different types of glue, including West Systems epoxy, all of which have worked loose. Some of the joints are tight and some are a little loose with old glue residue.
Yes it can be used for your application.
what is the shelf life when sealed in the original container, in a 40 to 90 degree shop in 20 to 40% humidity
Shelf life is well over a year, no specific limit.
The product description says can be used to "create small laminated parts subject to alot of flexing" . Can I use this product over two layers kevlar tape to create a "hinge" that has some range of motion? Once it dries, is it flexible but not sticky to the touch? Thx
This is pretty thick and may not wet out kevlar. It's flexible as far as epoxies go but motion would be limited.

can you paint over with topside paint
You could paint over this, sand with 80 grit first, then prime and paint.

I have been looking for spar epoxy. And i Will Cruise in the tropics. Been consithering to use flex 650 and west blend. West systems does not have good strength at higher temps.Read: at predicted painted or varnished surfaces it has lost strength. I believe I need softer epoxy due to wood (spar) movements due to load and moisture.I could not find any data about flexepoxy strength at high temp (160F for example). Did not see either breakdown (Tg ) temp. The temperature to break the epoxy glue for repair.What are your higher temp data?Any recomandation of flexepoxy mixes for bird mouth spars.
Sorry, we don't have any information on strength at high temperatures, it would be similar to West System 650

What are the colors
Only one color, medium brown.

Can FlexEpox be used to adhere wood strips to the fiberglass substrate of a cockpit sole? The wood I intend to use is Red Balau. The sole currently has a non-skid finish, which would be sanded down for improved bonding.
Yes, sanded down the wood strips should not have holding issues. Keep inmind, epoxy does not hold up well (long term) outside, under *direct* UVconditions. D Jacobson
I think it would perform just fine in that application. I would just be sure to give both surfaces a sanding & wipe down with acetone prior to glueing.
Total Boat Epoxy has been a very good product when I have used it. I wouldbe willing to bet you could but I have never used it on Red Balau so I couldnot say for sure?? But I think so. I have not used it yet where itfailed?? Best of luck
I have done that with my FlexEpox but I can't see why it wouldn't work, I have patched things on boats, cracked plastic bathtubs and fixed punctures in aluminum boats, use it as a finish coat after wrap a fishing rod guide with no failures. If everything is flat and the bonding surfaces will uniformly touch should work just fine but be aware this product is pretty thin unless you use a thickener. If the wood is free from oil and clean I would put a coat on the wood then on the cockpit sole.There is also some epoxy that premixes as it comes out of the tube (like a caulk gun) that might be a better product since the epoxy comes out more like caulk which in my mind might be better for what you are doing.
Could this be used to seal leaky seams on a wooden boat?
Yes, I think it would be fine. Be sure the wood is fully dry. A lot dependsupon the specific problem. If the boat tightens up with a good soaking,that is a different problem than a boat with open seams. Every situation isdifferent.If there are open seams, I would add something like WEST System 403Microfibers Adhesive Filler to enhance the gap filling properties. I lovethese flexible epoxies. If you are just hoping to avoid a soaking period,you would probably have to add a full fiberglass layer with theaccompanying weight addition.
Yes, you could.

Solid, dependable, strong, flixable workable .
This is hands down the best epoxy I have used on a array of applications , wood, fiberglass, plastic composites ,etc.
Cherry Hill NJ
I would buy again easy to use
Leaked a little on arrival. Need to be better sealed. Work great and easy to mix.
This is what I needed to fix my boat
It took quite a bit of research to find this product. I'm from RI,now living in California, with my old '88 aluminum 17 ft run about. This flex epoxy worked great for gluing my new plywood transom pieces together. I even used it to seal some pin holes inthe inboard aluminum panel that was corroded.
Replaced the transom on my jonboat with inch and a half plywood coated it with the TotalBoat FlexEpoxy and then painted it. Worked great easy to mix, had plenty of time to apply it.
Worked as advertised
Worked well reattaching a handle to a PVC dingy
Used it to protect the underside of my hull, it was an excellent choice. I would buy this again to finish the rest of my Bote rover
Ainokea' we go!
I highly recommend this product. Small patches or a. large area, easy to use. Very durable.
To repair just about anything. Just like G-Flex but less expensive.
Ramrod Key, FL
I would buy this product again
I used a small amount one time and like its extended working time. I will use it more as the project progresses
North Augusta SC
Used it to glue fancy border of parquet flooring to plywood. Honey-like consistency easy to work with. Decent pot life of approx 30 min and overnight cure
