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 Group Sizes: A - Quart Kit; B - Gallon Kit; C - 4.5 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.

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.

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.

Works great

Comments about TotalBoat 5:1 Epoxy Kits:

No difficulty in using. The hand pumps make mixing very easy. Sets and cures well, scarphed plywood for 1/4" planking, with sawdust filler, over a 2" wide joint surface. Used on humid, 80F days. No data on long term durability, but will be painted and varnished over so not expecting UV issues, etc.

Comments about TotalBoat 5:1 Epoxy Kits:

With the pumps provided, once primed properly, the product is fairly easy to use. Be prepared ahead with gloves and mixing sticks, syringes wood flour thickeners etc so you can work efficiently. All epoxy can be messy so have plastic sheets down to catch drips and clean up quicker.

I've use West system and other epoxies and they are great products but this is good stuf for the cost conscious and especially on surfaces that may later be painted. I'm not saying this wouldn't work good enough for finishing a fine boat, I just don't mind spending a little more for highly visible hull finishing

                  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.

                              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.
