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, and 2 paint pots.

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
  • Fungi & mildew protection

The product produced did its job.


Worked well. However, I was surprised how hot the mixture got in the container after mixing it. Be prepared to move fast as the product heats up quick while your are trying to apply the product. Make sure you have very good ventilation.



Good produbt


I used this penetrating epoxy and my first coat over bare wood (teak) before then re-coating with regular plain epoxy


Biloxi MS


Good product, but longer cure than desired and some restrict


Used to repair rot on historic windows. I put plastic below the sash as a precaution, as well as on the floor and other places. Good idea as it turns out as the penetrating sealer is very porous indeed and leaked thru. The epoxy wood filler putty used with it is also a mess times 8. A limitation is it has to be dry to use on bad wood. Hard to get there without tearing out all of the rotten stuff, which is kinda the point of using this, to avoid tearing all out. I could not do a number of windows as wet and predictions of rain before long cure period. I will use it again in combination with the epoxy wood filler putty, but selectively as expensive and other products are cheaper.


Key West for this use


excellent product


I use this penetrating epoxy as a sealer before priming on any/all wood surfaces on my boats. Works well under varnish. It doea need to be thinned further to maximize penetration using lac thinner or acetone.


Santa Rosa, CA


I use this product as a base under all of my bright work.


It penetrates deeply, especially when cut with acetone. 2 coats of this under 2 coats of varnish yield a beautiful finish!


Pitman, NJ

This is a great product!


Used to seal original And replacement exposed plywood on a 1996 fifth wheel RV I am restoring. Easy to mix and easy to apply. Ultimately time will tell but it sure appears to be impervious to water now.


Mulvane, KS


Thought I would give it a try.


My deck has 22 posts and I tried everything I could to keep water from soaking into the tops. I painted this penetrating epoxy on them and the water just runs off.




sealed the bottom nicely


I needed a good seal on my 1960 Dory and this product did the trick. I also used it to seal wood rot before using epoxy putty.

Total boat epoxy


This stuff was perfect for my job. The ability to thin it with acetone and to be able to apply it with a brush were selling points . Deep absorption and thin enough to brush on made this product unique , very easy to use and superb for it's purpose . You get a glowing endorsement! Thank you!


Phoenix arizona

This product was hard to use - I would not use again


I followed Lou's tips to seal my new dinghy seats. I stained the new Okeume planks first then used the TPES with a 2 to 1 ratio - 4 ounces of A and 2 ounces of B - I think I put in a little too much A because the first coat took 3 days to dry. I then sanded and added th second coat BUT that coat pooled up in spots, did not dry evenly and I ended up with a lot of hollow spots lke swiss cheese.I had to spend many hours sanding before the varnish went on.
