TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy Kits

TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy is a low-viscosity wood rot restoration and repair solution that seals deeper & cures stronger than industry-leading penetrating epoxies. It has no VOCs, no odor & is 100% waterproof once cured.

This 2:1 system is ideal for restoring rotten or damaged wood, or sealing new wood for lasting protection against humidity, salt, mold & mildew. It works by gluing cellulose (wood) fibers back together, sealing a bare, porous wood surface from the inside out. Double the penetrating power by mixing acetone with the epoxy resin solution in equal volume. Easy to apply by brush, roller, or inject via syringe. Surfaces may be painted or varnished after light sanding.

Choose from Traditional (65-90 F) or Cold Weather (40-65 F) formulas in Pint, Quart, 1/2 Gallon & Gallon kits. Bonus: Kit includes 2 stir sticks, 2 paint pots & 1 pr. latex gloves.

Cleanup is easy. Wear latex gloves, wash off with soap and water. No solvents required.

APPLICATION NOTE: The wood must be bare and unfinished. Also, TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy will not penetrate and level well when applied over some stains. Always test an area first. DO NOT USE on top of Minwax oil-based stains.

TotalBoat Cold Weather Penetrating Epoxy is perfect for use during the colder seasons. Compared to our traditional TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy, our Cold Weather formula offers similar performance characteristics, but cures completely and reliably in cooler temperatures. Its tack-free properties also allow you to sand sooner.

WARNING: TotalBoat Cold Weather Penetrating Epoxy should not be used as a fast-cure epoxy in warmer temperature conditions because doing so can be unsafe and result in premature exotherm, brittleness, and improper curing.

Application Temperature Ranges:

  • Traditional formula - 65-90°F
  • Cold Weather formula - 40-65°F

Use For:

  • Sealing open wood pores
  • Glues wood fibers back together

As described


Used to strengthen water soaked deteriorating driftwood pieces for art work. Two applications, first equal dilutions of alcohol and 2nd a fifty percent dilution. The results were amazing. Solidly firm pieces of wood, no flaking or sponginess.




Worked good for me!


Treated replaced and existing flooring in an RV. Cut with 70% acetone and it soaked in pretty good on the existing flooring and moderately on the new. Applied 2 coats cut 70% and 1 coat 20%. Dried hard in about 24 hours. Happy with the results.

Great stuff


Used this to finish and seal wood, strengthen old, damaged wood and seal through hulls through wood. Used it to seal exposed wood edges of decking. The low viscosity really penetrates the wood and creates a very strong water resistant finish. I have used a little wood flour and silica thickener to add just enough body to easily fill small gaps and cracks. Getting ready seal wood on a rear bulkhead I'm replacing in a 30' whaler I'm rebuilding. It's easy to measure, work with, and a very reasonable working time.

I would buy this product again.


I am rebuilding a 1988 Starcraft SFM 160 and I used this epoxy on all the new wood that will go back into the boat. The penetration is good and the treated wood is hard and impervious to water penetration. I used the cold temperature product because my garage in the winter is not that warm.




Seals and Penetrates Well


This epoxy penetrated and sealed my mahogany rudders on my Gemini catamaran. I mixed it with 2 parts resin, 1 part hardener and 1 part acetone.I applied three coats as the lower edges of my rudders had cracks and dings.The order taker at Jamestown thought I needed a quart which I ordered but a pint would have been more than enough as this goes a long way.




worked great


used it to waterproof and saturate some soft wood around a hatch




This product is awesome!


I have been using this on the inside of a rebuild 57 Lyman. Makes things so much easier to help attaching the ribs. Gives my new screws easier to insert by giving the wood a solid feel and also filling any gap from the old screws.

Not as penetrating as I had hoped, but good on end grain


Using to seal new pine on exterior house trim to guard against future rot, which has been a problem for me in our northeast climate with pine trim. I thinned the product with acetone for better penetration, but still found it thicker than I had hoped it would be. Tended to form lumpy puddles where penetration was less than optimal, which were hard to brush away, and even harder to sand out. But the viscosity was just right for sealing endgrain in one application. Going to do some comparison testing for durability versus Smith's on some side-by-side sets of garage doors faced with pine.

What a difference his makes


Made my life so much easier no second guessing. Many boards replaced but this also allowed me to keep many more in place. Works as stated and have bought many and will be buying more.

Marina Grade Plywood - RV pullout floor board replacement.


Looking for something better than the "water-based deck wood sealer" sold at the big box stores. I found this product to be the one. The factory RV pullout floor failed at the edge of the plywood from not being properly sealed. Doing the work myself in replacing the factory floorboard with a much better product (3/4", 7-ply, APA Marina plywood) why not get the best. Took the advice from the video I also add some solvent to thin out the 2 part epoxy which seems to allow the plywood to suck-it-up was also helpful. From what I can tell it works just as advertised. Other than the GOV charging an EPA-Fee (taxes) for shipping it was still worth the price.
