TotalBoat High Performance Slow Hardener

TotalBoat High Performance Slow Hardener is the curing agent for low-viscosity TotalBoat High Performance Epoxy Resin when you need to extend pot life and cure time, or when you are working in warmer temperatures.

At 77°F, this non-blushing hardener has a pot life of 40 minutes, will be tack-free in approximately 5 hours, and reaches full cure in 5 days.

Pairing TotalBoat High Performance Resin with the Slow Hardener creates a moisture-resistant solid that cures clear, ideal for clear coating applications. No blush to remove between coats means no time-consuming washdowns & no worrying about whether you removed all the blush, which could cause improper cure.

This Slow Hardener is available in Group Size A (pint), B (half gallon), and C (gallon), to match the group sizes of TotalBoat High Performance Epoxy Resin. This reduces waste and saves you money.

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

Three Hardener Speeds Let You Control Pot Life and Cure Time

Fast, Medium, and Slow High Performance Hardeners allow you to control the pot life and cure times to suit your particular working conditions.

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.

Which High Performance Hardener Should I Use?

  • High Performance Fast Hardener - Use High Performance Fast Hardener for the fastest cure and shortest working time at room temperature, or for an overnight cure in low temperatures (minimum 55°F).
  • High Performance Medium Hardener - Use High Performance Medium Hardener for most common applications, or for an overnight cure at room temperature (77°F).
  • High Performance Slow Hardener - Use High Performance Slow Hardener for extended working time and cure time at room temperature, or when working in warmer temperature conditions. If you are new at working with epoxy resin, the slow speed hardener will give you more working time, which you may find helpful.

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

TotalBoat High Performance Epoxy Resin and TotalBoat High Performance Hardeners can be measured either by pouring or by using the calibrated TotalBoat 2:1 Epoxy Pumps (sold separately). If using the pump method for dispensing, USE ONLY TOTALBOAT 2:1 Epoxy Pumps. DO NOT substitute the pumps from any other epoxy system or the material will not cure properly.

NOTE: The procedure for dispensing TotalBoat High Performance Epoxy Resin and TotalBoat High Performance Hardener properly is always ONE full pump of resin to ONE full pump of hardener.
