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

Great product for carved wood signage


I regularly use this epoxy, cut with acetone, to completely seal the wood on carved wood signage I create. I can cover it with paint, varnish and gold leaf (properly prepped) and know that any sign I make will outlast me. Given the time and effort to conceive, build, lay out, carve and gild a proper sign, using TotalBoat penetrating epoxy helps ensure a stable, waterproof foundation for my signs. Bonus points: Jamestown has realy helpful and experienced staff to answer questions and ships my stuff same day in almost every case. Great people!

This is a good product which I have used several times


I would ask JD to review their packing protocol as the most recent order arrived with indications of leaking of one or more of the containers. Not a lot of leaking but a stain showing on the exterior of the carton. Although there is an arrow indicating which side is up on the box carriers do not pay attention to that arrow.

Don't get rot, BUY THIS


As the owner of a fifty year old wooden boat I often encounter rotted and dry wood. I have used several similar products and I find Total boat penetrating epoxy to be an easy to use, and great product. The product penetrates deeply and thoroughly, cures well, has little to no odor. The cost is reasonable and the shelf life has been for me multi year which is a plus.

I've purchased this twice


Only time will tell how well it will work but I am happy enough to have used it twice




Good penetration


Seems to stabilize damaged wood.

Works beautifully -- but some caveats


I have used this to protect mahogany vergeboard trim, mahogany porch post bottoms, walnut kitchen counter sink edges and plywood kitchen cabinet tops under sink. Have also used it to treat very advanced rot -- wood that crumbles like breakfast cereal. In both cases the results have been beyond expectation. The weather-blasted exterior work has held up beautifully for 3 years -- and the rot was quickly stabillized. So the product works great -- but it does not catalyze consistently.Even giving it the full two-minute mix and carefully measuring ratios and using at room temp, I have found the epoxy sometimes sets up quickly (24-hour cure) or remains sticky for days on end.The good news is that even the slowest catalyzation eventually works well. But it can take a week or more.With this in mind, don't push the temps too much. if it's cold -- use the cold weather version.

Still waiting.


Had a little rot on some marine plywood edges so I tried this product. It lists potlife at 20 minutes but 2 1/2 hours later i'm still waiting for it to tack up. Low viscosity works really well for injecting with a syringe however if it all runs out in the bilge before it sets up you've not done to much. Temp was 70F when I started. 2 to 1 mix is failproof. NOT a fan.




This product did not get hrd


It's easy to use but did not get hard in my transom I drilled holes to install a transducer and the epoxy poured out 2 weeks later mixed as suggested


Capon bridge


Highly effective


Great epoxy - it will take punky rotten wood, and make it solid and hard as a rock. I also coat it on all new woodwork I use for boat projects. Add 2 coats of spar varnish, and it looks really great. If all boat wood was painted in this epoxy, there would be far fewer boat repair projects.All the TotalBoat branded products I've used provide great results, and usually cost less. Believe it or not, I actually don't even work for JD...
