TotalBoat High Performance 2:1 Epoxy Resin

TotalBoat High Performance 2:1 epoxy cures more clearly, making it ideal for clear coating projects that showcase the beauty of wood, or carbon fiber's attention-getting texture. It's flex properties make it the natural choice for wooden boat construction and repairs. This lower viscosity system wets out fiberglass easily. No blush means no messy, tedious washdowns between coats. The low-VOC, low-odor formula is suitable for indoor or shop use.

Pair 2:1 resin with your choice of Slow, Medium, or Fast hardeners that let you optimize pot life & cure time for the conditions. Simple 2:1 mix ratio produces a proper cure in a wide range of temperatures for layups, sealing, laminating, & vacuum bagging. Combine with fillers for a high-strength gluing, filleting, or fairing compound.

Available in Quart, Gallon, & 4-Gallon sizes.

TotalBoat High Performance 2:1 Epoxy Resin and 2:1 Non-Blushing Hardeners cure to an ultra-clear, glossy, blush-free finish that produces exceptional results for hand layups, laminating, and clear coating.

High Performance 2:1 Resin and Hardeners can be measured in one of three ways:

  • By weight
  • By volume
  • Using the TotalBoat 2:1 Epoxy Pumps

High Performance 2:1 Epoxy Resin System Benefits

Low Viscosity Resin: This low-viscosity epoxy resin saturates fiberglass fibers quickly, easily, and completely to reduce the amount of material, time, and labor needed for layups, laminating, and vacuum bagging.

Three Hardener Speeds to Control Cure Time: Fast, Medium, and Slow 2:1 Hardeners allow you to control the pot life and cure times to suit your particular working conditions. For example, the 2:1 Fast Hardener cures the fastest at room temperature, and can even cure overnight in low temperatures (minimum 55°F). Even better, you can craft your ideal working properties and pot life by combining the different hardeners with each other, but always remember to maintain the proper ratio of 2 parts resin to 1 part hardener by volume.

More Flexible Cure: The High Performance 2:1 Epoxy System cures to a more flexible finish than traditional resins, too, making it a better choice for wooden boats and kayaks that typically flex during use, as well as expand and contract with changes in temperature and humidity.

Blush-Free: This non-blushing system eliminates the time consuming washdowns between coats typically needed when using traditional 5:1 resin systems.

Low Odor, Low VOC Content—Better for You and the Environment: Low-VOC, low-odor formula is better for use indoors or outdoors. The low VOC content is especially good for use in areas with environmental restrictions.

How to Use TotalBoat High Performance 2:1 Epoxy Resin

TotalBoat High Performance 2:1 Epoxy Resin can be combined with any of our TotalBoat 2:1 Hardeners (Fast, Medium, and Slow) for exceptional results.

TotalBoat epoxy resin and hardeners are packaged and labeled according to group sizes (A, B, C) to ensure you have enough material for your project at the best value.

Clear-coating applications:High Performance 2:1 Resin and Hardeners are clear in color and are ideally suited for clear-coating applications.

Resin and Hardeners can be measured either by pouring or by using the calibrated TotalBoat 2:1 Epoxy Pumps.

Personal Safety: For your safety, please be sure to wear protective gloves and eye, face, and clothing protection when working with epoxy resin and hardeners. Also, be sure your work area has adequate ventilation.


USING THE TOTALBOAT 2:1 PUMPS FOR DISPENSING TOTALBOAT HIGH PERFORMANCE 2:1 EPOXY RESIN AND HARDENERS

The procedure for dispensing TotalBoat High Performance 2:1 resin and any of the 2:1 hardeners properly is ALWAYS ONE full pump of resin to ONE full pump of hardener. TotalBoat pump sets are calibrated to dispense the accurate mix ratio automatically.

IMPORTANT! Proper mix ratios are critical when working with epoxy resin and hardeners in order to achieve a proper cure.

★ TotalBoat High Performance 2:1 Epoxy Resin used with TotalBoat 2:1 Fast Hardener, TotalBoat 2:1 Medium Hardener, or TotalBoat 2:1 Slow Hardener is mixed at a ratio of 2 parts resin to 1 part hardener by volume.

TotalBoat 2:1 Epoxy Pumps are calibrated to dispense the proper mix ratio of TotalBoat High Performance 2:1 Epoxy Resin and TotalBoat 2:1 Hardener automatically.

  • Use the TotalBoat 2:1 Epoxy Pump Set when using TotalBoat High Performance 2:1 Epoxy Resin with:
    • TotalBoat 2:1 Fast Hardener
    • TotalBoat 2:1 Medium Hardener
    • TotalBoat 2:1 Slow Hardener
This pump set has a blue dot on the resin pump, and a red dot on the hardener pump. These colors correspond to the cap colors for the resin and hardener.

Remember, the procedure for dispensing TotalBoat 2:1 Resin and 2:1 Hardener properly is always ONE full pump of resin to ONE full pump of hardener.

When using the pump dispensing method for measuring TotalBoat 2:1 High Performance Epoxy Resin and TotalBoat 2:1 Fast Hardener, TotalBoat 2:1 Medium Hardener, or TotalBoat 2:1 Slow Hardener, use ONLY the TotalBoat 2:1 Epoxy Pumps. These pumps are calibrated to dispense the accurate 2:1 mix ratio automatically. DO NOT use pumps from any other manufacturer; DO NOT use the TotalBoat 5:1 or 3:1 Epoxy Pumps.

NOTE: Adding more hardener does not make the epoxy set faster. It throws off the mix ratio and will not cure properly.

PRIME THE RESIN AND HARDENER PUMPS BEFORE DISPENSING

Push down and release the head of each pump several times until you get a steady stream of liquid without any air pockets.

COLD WEATHER OPERATION: Cold temperatures make the viscosity of resin and hardeners increase and may require more force to pump thicker materials. Excessive force on either one of the plunger heads however, may also cause the pumps to break. Dispensing material in 60-70°F is recommended for optimal pump performance.

In cooler temperatures, warming the containers prior to pumping will decrease the epoxy viscosity, making materials pump more easily.

MIXING

After dispensing resin and hardener into a plastic mixing pot, use a wooden stir stick to mix thoroughly.

Good product. I have used Mas 20 plus years. have purchased 3 , 4gal jugs of total 2-1 resin and all have broken seal and leaked out up to 1/4 gallon resin. been able to retrieve most out of plastic bag, but what a mess! need better sealing caps.

Total Boat "High Performance" 2:1 epoxy seems to be the same as System-3 2:1. I haven't tried mixing the two brands yet, so I don't know if they are identical. The performance is similar to 5:1, I can't really tell the difference, perhaps a little less blush from the 2:1. The cost ends up pretty similar. I favor the 2:1 because it's easier to measure without pumps, especially in small batches.

Great product for wetting out fiberglass and coating

Recommend getting slow cure hardener to allow maximum time in applying. Since this is typically spread over large surface you'll want as long a pot time as you can get (especially in warmer weather). Use an epoxy spreader to quick distribution over large flat surface, foam roller for non-horizontal, or 2" foam brush for smaller bits. Clean tools with denatured alcohol.
