System Three's universal cartridge system eliminates the need for mixing with standard caulking guns as the cartridge's dual chambers ensure the proper ratio, which is mixed in the mixing tip.
Silvertip Gel Magic is a 2-part epoxy adhesive that will not sag or run. Designed for wood and other porous materials. Gel Magic components mix into a paste that is ready to be applied to vertical and overhead surfaces without sagging or otherwise making a mess.

When fully cured, it is unaffected by water, oil, kerosene, and many other chemicals. It will not stain wood and is immune to fungus and rot. Ideal for stitch and glue, plywood, strip built and glued lap strake construction. As well as a high strength, gap filling, waterproof adhesive for general woodworking and architectural applications.

Why does it say not for use below the waterline here but on the System Three web site it says for use above and below waterline?
sorry i don't know
I am not aware of any issues using System Three Gel Magic below the waterline. To my knowledge this 2-part epoxy adhesive is intended for both above and below waterline fabrication use, as the System Three website indicates. I am using it currently on the construction of a glued plywood lapstrake skiff.Thanks.
Hi Kerm,Would the Thixo work well bonding wood to fiberglass for a spray rail? The last time I did this I got MAS Flexbond 5000 from JD and it worked great 7 seasons and still going strong.I am just looking for something that cures a little faster.Thanks for your time.
Its for filling dry voids but after can take moisture. Good product used correctly.
A Real Life Saver
I can't imagine having to mix batches of epoxy to attach a kayak deck to the hull. I can make a bead of epoxy quickly around the circumference of the hull and have plenty of time to place the deck in place and attach band clamps before the resin begins to set up. Hand mixing batches for this job would waste too much time causing a hurried mating of the two parts. A great product!

Adhesive can be easily applied exactly where you want it. No sagging makes this product ideal for hard to reach areas.
Really works as advertised
When they say "no sag", they really mean it. You can run a vertical fillet with this product and not be concerned about coming back later to find a puddle. It's very easy to apply via the mixing tips. The product cures clear and seems as hard and workable as one would expect with an epoxy.
