TotalBoat 5:1 Epoxy Kits

TotalBoat 5:1 Epoxy Kits include everything you need to tackle epoxy repairs and fiberglass projects. The complete project-ready epoxy kit includes: TotalBoat 5:1 epoxy resin; your choice of either fast or slow TotalBoat hardener; a set of metered mixing pumps, 2 stir sticks, 2 mixing pails, and a pair of latex gloves.

For convenience, pumps are color-coded to match the resin or hardener cap, and calibrated at a precise 5:1 ratio for a perfect 5:1 mix every time. All you do is mix ONE full pump of hardener to every ONE full pump of resin.

System sizes: Group Size A = Quart Kit; Group Size B = Gallon Kit

Note: Don't need the pumps, gloves, stir sticks, or mixing cups? Gallon size kits are also available with just resin & hardener included. This 'no frills' version makes sense if you already have TotalBoat pumps and just need more epoxy.

Work in 240 ml batches and keep it stirred regularly while working. 200ml of resin to 40 ml of activator was a good ,economical working batch. If you don't pay attention the mixture will crystalize exothermically within 15-20 minutes of mixing. Mixes well with West 404 for reinforcing wood seams between plywood edges. I have used Gluvit and Amazing Goop with mixed results. I am extremely happy with this product and substituted it in my work for West Systems mainly because of its price.

I purchased 5:1 epoxy kit with pumps to repair delamination on my Hobie 16. I liked the fact that one pump resin and one pump of the hardener gives you a 5:1 ratio without having to measure. Luckily I did a small test batch to make sure the epoxy would set up correctly. Well, the test batch took over an hour to gel and over 2 hours to harden and still there was oily residue so it seems that it did not set up correctly overall. I then decided to add more hardener with another test batch. Well that batch set up too quickly and with generated alot of heat. Finally I found the right mixture which was 2 pumps of resin with about 1 1/2 pumps of hardener. It set up correctly and hardened within about 15 minutes. I repaired half of my one haul but I don't like the fact that I have to "wing it" to get the proper ratio. I feel like I wasted alot of product and money in having to experiment to get it right. I am not sure if i have faulty pumps or materials. I of course bled the pumps to rid of any air pockets. I could have used the supplied mixing cups but I would much rather make several small batches and avoid the epoxy setting up before I am finished injecting it. It worked great after injecting it into the hull. It is strong stuff and my hull is now rock hard. I could have done without having to experiment to get it right thus wasting product and money.

      Comments about TotalBoat 5:1 Epoxy Kits:

      The pumps deliver the precise amount. No mess no fuss. Its a good idea to prime it first if its been sitting awhile. I used this to pour liquid into a void created by some rot. It's very runny, like pancake syrup. Needs a filler if you need a thicker consistency.

          Comments about TotalBoat 5:1 Epoxy Kits:

          I was a carpenter for 30yrs, but never worked with epoxy resin or fiberglass. I bought the total boat 5:1 epoxy kit, fiberblass cloth, primer, wet edge paint, and total tread paint. All the products were easy to work with. One time I was being distracted while pumping out the 5:1 epoxy resin and hardener and lost count on the number of pumps for each. Must of put one to many pumps of hardener, because it got real hot and melted through the mix cup. But if you follow the instructions to the letter these total boat products are very easy to work with. This is my first boat which is a fixer upper, which I have never done before and with the ease of using these products it is turning out looking great for a rooky.

                  Comments about TotalBoat 5:1 Epoxy Kits:

                  I tried Total Boat Epoxy Resin and Slow Curing Hardener because I live in San Antonio where the temperature this time of year begins at 80 degrees with 50-60% humidity and gets progressively warmer throughout the day. The original cabin top on my Spindrift 22 leaks tremendously so I am creating a new one using a balsa cored/1208 glass sandwich. The Total Boat Epoxy and Hardener worked extremely well in small batches (10-15 pumps of each), giving me plenty of time to laminate the glass to the balsa, push out any air bubbles, etc., without going exothermic. The curing and "B" stage times were fairly similar to "normal" West Systems hardener/epoxy mixture, which I attribute to the increased heat and humidity this time of year in San Antonio. I used Peel Ply on the second coat of epoxy and I have a surface that is 95% smooth and ready for fairing and paint. Very satisfied with the results.

                        West systems makes a great epoxy but I really appreciate the extra working time when comparing slow to slow with west systems.

                          Pumps worked very well. The resin takes a bit longer than west system fast cure to harden but the extra time was a appreciated.
