TotalBoat Thixo 2:1 Epoxy System

TotalBoat Thixo is a thickened epoxy adhesive that gives you the reliability and strength of a modern 2:1 epoxy system in an easy to use 185ml cartridge. This convenient point and shoot system is ideal for bonding wood, metal and fiberglass above or below the waterline.

Thixo cartridges fit standard caulking guns. Lay a bead of this non-sagging adhesive to vertical or overhead surfaces. TotalBoat Thixo cures to a hard, translucent surface that can be drilled, painted, or sanded. This no-mess, no-hassle versatile 2:1 epoxy system comes equipped with two free static mixing tips to ensure accurate mix ratio upon application every time. Ideal working temperatures range from 50-80 degrees F.

Cartridges are available individually and in contractor packs of (6) cartridges. Additional mixing tips are sold separately.

I just rebuilt a 50 year old Herreshoff sailboat. I put a new deck house on the boat and built it out of marine ply, glass and mahogany. I could not have done it without Thixo. It was a godsend. When I started the project I had never used a 2:1 premix like Thixo, but now that I am finished, I am not sure what I would have done without it. This is a DIY boat builder's must have product.

The idea of this product is good, as it eliminates mixing and thickening, but the epoxy is very difficult to press out of the tube, and extreemly difficult if it is colder than 65 degrees.
It saves time in a way, to not have to keep adding thickener to get the right consistancy, but time is lost when applying, due to the time comsumption trying to get it out of the tube. If it were to dispense like caulk it would be perfect. The product is too stiff to get out, even when not using the tips, and just mixing out of the tube.The cure time seems to be longer than standard mixing by hand also, but that is not a real problem, just an observation. I would recomend this for warm weather use, or warming the product before use, it helps some, but should be a bit thinner for easier application.

thixo 2:1 epoxy "caulk"

By bashermax

from South Georgia

Verified Buyer

Comments about TotalBoat Thixo 2:1 Epoxy System:

this stuff is SOOOOO much easier to use than having to mix and thicken other epoxies with either wood flour, silica or microballoons. Its pricey, but being able to point and shoot like caulk is wonderful.
I used it to fillet a bulkhead and a kevlar combing on a kayak and it was the easiers part of either operation. Definately be using this on future builds and maybe even on some household projects where applicable. As they say in baseball, "no runs, no errors"!

Comments about TotalBoat Thixo 2:1 Epoxy System:

I have used this product as an adhesive to glue the wooden planks to the wooden ribs of an old sailboat. I still used SS screws later, but the THIXO adhesive makes a watertight seal, and fills in small gaps. Also, in cold weather (50 deg - 60 deg), you have lots of working time before it sets up and hardens. I used it with the mixing tips, and I used it without the tips. If you use it without the tips, you can be confident that it squeezes out of the tube in the correct proportions, and then you can use a spatula or putty knife to mix it up and then spread it onto wider areas. I recommend that you use the product withing a month of purchase. I ordered some in October, 2016, and did not use it until 6 months later, and it was very difficult to squeeze out of the tube. I concluded that the shelf-life is not very long. Subsequently, I have used fresh tubes, and they work great.

      Made filleting my stitch and glue boat project a breeze. Used a plastic spoon to shape and had to do very little sanding after it cured.

              We are trying the THIXO that you sent us, first area is the new cypress skeg on the 1880s rowboat "Barbashela" that we are restoring. We really like the mixing nozzle, that made it quick and easy to apply the adhesive where we wanted and in the desired quantity, which minimized waste. The material flowed well and the setup time was adequate even in 90F Florida heat. We like it and just ordered 3 more tubes for the keel. It will be useful on our fiberglass boat restorations as well.

                      This is a great product for epoxy repairs. I have used it to repair a large hatch with some soft spots in it with great success, also for backfilling screw holes and making finished epoxy seams on a flybridge/deck connection. It is easy to work with and seems strong and durable. The only downside I experienced was very slight shrinkage as it sets up.

                      Be sure to plan your joints/applications The nozzles are a one time use so you need to have done your fitting, etc. and glue up as much as you can at one time. If just one joint you are better off using Total Boat 5 to 1.
