TotalBoat 5:1 Epoxy Kits include everything you need to tackle epoxy repairs and fiberglass projects. Complete project-ready epoxy kits includes: TotalBoat 5:1 epoxy resin; your choice of either fast or slow TotalBoat hardener; 2 stir sticks, and 2 mixing pails.
System Group Sizes: A - Quart Kit; B - Gallon Kit; C - 4.5 Gallon Kit.
Note: Don't need the stir sticks or mixing cups? Gallon size kits are also available with just resin & hardener included. This 'no frills' version makes sense if you just need more epoxy.
Note: Due to the COVID-19 Emergency, we are currently experiencing a shortage of epoxy pumps. We have temporarily removed pumps from 5:1 Epoxy Kits and are offering kits at a special reduced price.

TotalBoat Traditional Resin mixed with TotalBoat Fast or Slow Hardeners cures to an amber color, and is not suitable for clear-coating applications.
For clear-coating applications, or where an ultra clear cure is important, we recommend TotalBoat High Performance 2:1 Epoxy. TotalBoat Crystal Clear 3:1 Epoxy may also be used for such applications.
For extra long pot life and working time, use TotalBoat Tropical Epoxy.
Tip: Wash cured epoxy with water, scrubbing lightly with a Scotch-Brite pad to remove any amine blush prior to overcoating or painting.

What product would be best for coating the bottom inside hull Of my boat
That really depends on what type of boat and the material it is made of.
Is the there an advantage to curing your 5:1 epoxy in a heated tent (@110 degrees) for large glass or carbon layups? Also what is the temperature this epoxy gets soft after its fully cured? I'm doing a large carbon layup and want to finish it clear and I'm concerned about sunlight heating it and causing it to get soft.
Post curing epoxy will improve the modulus and elongation both go up - making your glass job more resistant to dings and breaks.Epoxy will begin to soften at around 124 degrees fahrenheit. Check out this video series: https://youtu.be/hTGMdbejtbM
Im trying to pour just under 1/2" epoxy over mirror. What product would have the clearest result viewing the mirror through the epoxy? Is there a specific technique to maintain a clear image in the mirror?
TotalBoat Thickset epoxy or TotalBoat High Performance epoxy are clear epoxies that would work well for that application. Review the tech sheets and videos on the product pages for more information and tips.
When do you expect to have 5-1 pumps in stock?
The pump manufacturer has shifted their production to items required to help fight the current pandemic. It is not known how soon pumps will be available.
Can a high gloss clear and metal flake combo be applied over a repaired area where Total Boat Epoxy was used?
Geoff, why don't you give us a call and talk w/one of our techs 1-800-497-0010 so we can better understand your project. We are opened 8:00-5:00. You can put epoxy over epoxy but we maybe able to help you out more if we understood the project better. Thanks
What is the Minimum temperature suggested for working with this product?
Minimum temperature with the fast hardener is 40 degrees.
I have 44 square feet of brand new marine grade plywood to coat. It will be used for inflatable floor boards. How much product do I need and which product should I use?
A gallon kit should be enough for a couple coats.

What reducer can be used with 5:1 ? Is it up to 10% reducer?
It's not recommended to thin epoxy. If you need a little thinner epoxy use the 2:1 epoxy kit.
JD Tech Team
what is the aprox cure time for the slow and fast epoxy at aprox 70 dgrees temp
6 hours on the fast, 10 hours on the slow.
JD Tech Team
The fast cure will take about 35 minutes and the slow cure 45 to 60 minutes to cure at 70 F.Â This has been my experience working with both products on the Lobster Boat I'm restoring.
i used the 5 to 1 epoxy and in three days it is still gummy

I will use this product again.
Easy to work with
Great product, easy to work with and cost a lot less than West system. Heated up everything to 90 degrees worked perfectly.
Like the product, but shipment packing unreliable.
This is the third 5-gal TotalBoat epoxy kit I've bought in the last year. We are refitting our sailboat for a long cruise (pandemic allowing...). I like the product itself and prefer the greater viscosity over West Systems for laminating, especially if vertical or sloping surfaces are included, as they don't tend to drain as bad before setup. HOWEVER, for two of the three shipment the resin jugss arrived with VERY loose caps and blown seals. No problems with hardener. Fortunately, they are packed in a heavy plastic bag, but one still ends up with a jug coated outside with resin sitting inside a bag with resin in the bottom. The worst one had about 8 oz outside the jug. The cleanup before use is a pain, not to mention that the escaped resin ends up wasted.
Easy to use, great results
I used this epoxy on a live edge table top and it worked beautifully. Follow the directions exactly as written and you won't go wrong!
This is my third order of TotalBoat epoxy.
My 2 year old supply finally ran out, so I ordered more. This is wonderful stuff to have around. I've used it for crack repair in my driveway, rotted wood in my camper, tightening loose knots in my deck. and lots of other repair jobs.
I would and have bought this product again
Very reliable and repeatable results over and over again
Seven Sorings NC
I would buy again
Great products and customer service but, i didn't get the measuring pumps for the epoxy. Maybe i clicked on the wrong kit! Idk
I really enjoy working with the TotalBoat 5:1 resin.
This product delivers every time. Even if I miscount the pumps or the pumps spurts a bit and the mix is off a bit, it will cure and harden. I have not had any issues after ordering this kit 4 or 5 times to build my boat.

Easy to use
First timer here and this product worked great! I wish the pumps were available, it would've made the job a breeze.
I would but this product again. Great quality
The picture is misleading. Dosent come with pumps. The resin and hardener is great.
