TotalBoat Thixo Flex Flexible Epoxy Adhesive

Thixo Flex is a thickened epoxy adhesive that forms flexible, high-strength bonds on wood (even teak and other oily woods), fiberglass, metals, glass, & some plastics. Upon cure, it creates permanent, structural bonds that absorb shocks, stresses, & vibration.

This cartridge-dispensed non-sagging epoxy is great for building or restoring wooden boats prone to flexing during use, and movement from weather-related expansion & contraction. Thixo Flex can be applied to dry or damp surfaces in temperatures as low as 40°F. You'll appreciate the long working time & easy cleanup.

Handy cartridges fit standard caulk guns. Use the included mixing tip to measure, mix, & dispense a bead that's the precise 1:1 mix of resin and hardener to get a proper cure each time. No need to measure, mix, or worry.

One 250ml cartridge includes 2 static mixing tips.

Features

  • Forms permanent, flexible bonds on fiberglass, glass, metal, plastic, and wood, including hardwoods that typically are a challenge to bond because of their natural oils.
  • Waterproof bonds hold firmly when subjected to contraction, expansion, shock, & vibration.
  • Convenient cartridge fits into a standard caulk gun.
  • Static mixing tip fits firmly onto cartridge to easily mix, measure, and dispense the precise ratio of resin and hardener for you.
  • Apply to dry or damp surfaces.
  • Long working time of 75 minutes is ideal for larger projects that require extensive gluing.
  • Can be used in temperatures as cool as 40°F.
  • Buff-colored cured epoxy can be sanded and painted.

 

Compare to two-part West System G/Flex 655. Thixo Flex is a better value, and is easier to use because the resin and hardener are contained inside a single cartridge that fits into a standard caulking gun (sold separately). There's no measuring, mixing, or mess because the included static mixing tip measures, mixes, and dispenses the exact ratio automatically.

In addition, Thixo Flex has higher flex tolerances and lasts longer than flexible, one-part urethane adhesives and sealants.

Application Notes: Store Thixo Flex cartridges at room temperature (60-90°F) before use. Apply when the temperature of the ambient air and substrate is 40°F or warmer. When finished, leave the static mixing tip on the tube to cure. For the next application, simply remove and replace the tip. Do not attempt to clean the tips.

Note: For use in manual caulking guns only.

Good epoxy!

I used this on some teak furniture pieces I made because I wanted to ensure the bond would hold the oily teak parts together permanently.

worked great will buy again

I had a teak cabin door that was basically destroyed by 250 lb man and a 8 foot wave. Needless to say the door needed major reconstruction. The epoxy blended well with color agent and the door went together with plenty of work time. 2 louvers were broken dead center and when glue cured the louvers remained flexible like the others. One day later you would never know it was destroyed so badly

I am in the process to replace some old and worn-down teak decking with Alaskan straight grain yellow cedar 1/2" thick with 1/4" caulked grooves teak caulking).It is extremely hard to get the Thixoflex out of the tube with the very best manual causing gun.I even bought a pneumatic gun etc., but that does not work, because of the way the two parts are placed inside the tube. There must be a better way!!!I don't use any screws, but only the Thixoflex which is working just fine. Just getting the 2-part material out of it's tube is very, very difficult!!

good product, sets up in low temps as instructions stated

product was used to treat the hull-keel joint, and because it is a more flexable epoxy, it is perfect for this area.

I am rebuilding the transom on a Chris Craft Constellation. I have use this to fill old holes and to glue planks together to reinstall the subfloor under the teak deck. It creates a solid bond. The only real negative is that it can be REALLY hard to push through the nozzle even after warming it up and there is a lot of waste in the mixing tip. If you just need a small amount I have found it better to just squirt some out of the tube onto a mixing tray and stir it up yourself and then apply. Mix it thoroughly though. I have not had any problems with the curing or bonding doing it this way.

We like the product, it mixes well and in the proper amounts. We used it to attach the rail cap on our Penobscot 14 "St. Jacques" and to attach a skeg on the 1880s rowboat "Barbashela."
