System Three SilverTip Laminating Resin

SilverTip Laminating Resin is specifically intended for laminating applications. It is a med-low viscosity, liquid epoxy system optimized for coating and reinforcing fabric saturation in wood-composite boatbuilding.

Silvertip resin provides fast wet-out, no blush, and cures to a brilliant, colorless finish. Working time is longer than most boat building epoxies, without sacrificing cure time. Cured film is tough and resilient with better heat resistance than other room temperature cured epoxies.

Using it since 1998, excellent


I first used System 3, because it was included in a kayak building kit From Pygmy Boats. There was some left over so I used it as projects came up. I became a carpenter and since have used it in many wood repair projects, including restoring/molding rotten voids in antique windows, and wood floors. Laminating figured veneer to electric guitars, setting guitar necks, repairing broken guitar necks.


New Buffalo, MI


Used on a 30 Yr Old Fiberglass Canoe


I used this product to both patch holes with fiberglass cloth and to cover the whole canoe prior to painting it with an epoxy based paint. It was excellent for both these purposes. Using the plunger set made it very easy to mix in small batches which I applied using a 6 inch roller. With 2 Qts of resin and 1 Qt of hardener I was able to cover my 17ft canoe completely from bow to stern 4 times and I still had about a pint of resin remaining. That included patching 3 small holes (6 sq in) with a double fiberglass cloth and one large hole (12 sq in) with 4 fiberglass clothes. Each cloth was covered with resin at least 3 times. As a woodworker I can see future uses for this product in that craft also.
