TotalBoat Thixo Low Viscosity just might be the perfect all-around adhesive. Its thinner, low-viscosity formula makes it ideal for laminating, filleting, and gluing. Use it as an adhesive to bond brick, concrete, cement, and composites. Use it as a sealant on sidewalks, seams, door frames, garage floors and steps. Fill cracks, holes, and seams. The number of applications are almost limitless.
Like all Thixo models, the Low Viscosity version (or 'LV') comes in a 185ml cartridge that fits all standard caulking guns. You simply attach included mixing tips and squeeze the caulking gun handle to dispense a bead of perfectly mixed translucent paste epoxy.

Apply in desired thickness to both prepared surfaces and bond firmly. Make sure Thixo LV stays on the contact surfaces and is not squeezed out/off
Use lacquer thinner or denatured alcohol to smooth out work
While Thixo LV can be used in cooler weather, it mixes better warm. To warm, place near heat source and warm slowly and consistently.
Preparation and Mixing Tips:
For best results, use a clean, flat surface when mixing or working with Thixo Low Viscosity
Use a solvent like acetone or Bio-Solve to clean and prep materials before bonding
Insert the cartridge into the caulking gun when ready to use
Open the epoxy by removing collar and nozzle plug

Does this product bond to metal?
Yes it bonds to metal. I have had it on my boat on the exterior for 1 year with no de lamination. Very good product. Easy to use.
Yes it does! And it works great. It also bonds to concrete, which was necessary for the job I used it for (I had a water leak under a sliding glass door, and the Thixo sealed the leak by bonding to the aluminum door frame and the concrete that it was resting on.)Usually, it's best to clean the metal before using the Thixo (alcohol works well for this), but in my case, I couldn't do that because the door frame was not readily moveable. But, the Thixo worked great anyway.
I have not tried it on metal. I was working on wood that was extremely difficult to reach. It worked well as an adhesive in that situation
Yes, I used it for sealing around steel angles set into core holes drilled in granite, we filled the core with non shrink grout then capped the hole with a 1/2" of epoxy to prevent water infiltration.
Low viscosity is an accurate claim! I needed to apply epoxy to a location that was not readily accessible. I attached about 15 inches of 1/4" polyethylene tubing to the end of the static mixing tip . . . and amazingly (with the help of a wire camera), I was able to apply the epoxy exactly where needed. I'm very pleased with Thixo LV, as well as Jamestown Distributors. I paid for the "rush order" fee and I received the product in two days - despite the fact that the delivery date was not mentioned in the checkout process.
Not wasteful. Seemed expensive but there was no waste -
Easy to work alone, little waste
I used this product to seal the lower edge of a sliding glass door with a concrete floor, to prevent rain water infiltration. So far, it's working great.After using, I soak the mixing nozzle in acetone, which effectively removes the epoxy and allows the nozzle to be reused.I believe it would be beneficial if a few additional sealing plugs were supplied with each tube, since they tend to get a bit mangled when removed.

This is great stuff!
Used it to repair a teak bowsprit. It was easy to use. Easy to clean up. And it dries hard as steel. I love this stuff and have recommended it to friends for home repair.

Great for filling workshop floor cracks
After several years of looking at & being irritated by a long, thin hairline crack in my workshop floor...I decided to do something about it because I plan on painting with an epoxy floor paint. I watched their 'Thixo' videos and was expecting it to be a very thick consistency. Instead it was fairly thin and easy to fill the crack without making a mess or wasting too much epoxy. It completely filled the crack, and you'll never know it was ever there once I paint.
