1) Epoxy 101 - epoxy educational section

 

Epoxies are a two part coating system. When the part A is mixed with the part B it starts a series of chemical actions that turn the epoxy mixture from liquid or putty into a hard product. The amount of time you have to work with the epoxy before it begins to harden is base on a number of things. The biggest factors are temperature and volume of mixed epoxy (and there are also some "fast" or "slow" epoxies). With today's modern, solvent free, epoxies working time (called pot life) is usually about 20 minutes at normal temperatures. It decreases in warmer temperatures. This means you work in relatively small batches. Epoxies will harden into something that sort of like a medium hard plastic. Important things to keep in mind include: 1) the epoxy will continue to "cure" and get harder for about a week. 2) epoxies do not like UV rays (sunlight) and will turn yellow and slowly begin to breakdown in sunlight. Usually epoxies are painted over to block the sunlight.

 

Epoxies are popular because they provide good chemical resistance, block rust, form an air tight and water tight bond, provide a good bond to most surfaces, usually are solvent free, also work like a glue and/or sealer. Some epoxies can even be applied  underwater.

3) Epoxy products - top selling epoxies and probably the ones you will be purchasing

 


Low V epoxy - low viscosity epoxy resin sealer

 

LOW V - A solvent free, low viscosity epoxy often used as sealer or a easily rollable/brushable base on wood bars, cement floors etc. Also used to 're-bond' delaminated damp boat decks  and RVs with their fiberglass 'skin'. Popular for wood rot repair too as it is thin (to soak in) odorless, and will bond to wet or damp surfaces. It is slightly amber and will yellow quicker than most epoxies. Biggest use is sealing shipping container floors. It was originally designed for concrete crack injection. Can be used under a varnish topcoat, giving a thicker epoxy base than the solvent based ESP 155. Can be allowed to flow over the edges on table and bar tops (but it is thin). Comes in 48 oz and 1.5 gal units. (2 to 2 mix ratio).

 Wet Dry 700 Epoxy

CYCLOALIPHATIC EPOXY

Ultimate Repair Epoxy Paste

Above and below the Waterline

Like Nothing You Have Ever Worked With Before!

Need to fix, glue, patch, fill, bond, coat or cover something underwater? Need to reinforce/wrap corroded, damaged or leaking pipes (with epoxy and fiberglass cloth)? Need to do a fiberglass cloth and epoxy repair with a non sagging epoxy paste? (even underwater?). How about sealing electrical connections in a ‘glob’ of waterproof epoxy? Patching some wood rot? One of our customers repaired serious rot in an 100 year old marine railway submerged under 12 feet of water.

Wet Dry 700 has saved sinking boats (and sunk boats - read Escape From Hermit Island available at Amazon.com. The authors recommend you don’t leave your dock without this epoxy - see epoxyproducts.com/cs_boat.html). It is also used on leaking pools and corroding barge mounted floating homes.

Welcome to the world of Wet Dry 700 (tm) Epoxy

Wet Dry 700 (tm) epoxy paste is a leading example of consumer driven epoxy technology, resulting in a versatile, field friendly repair product for difficult environments. Wet Dry is a solvent free, high performance epoxy reinforced with kevlar (tm) pulp and feldspar/ceramic. It can be applied to wet, damp, or dry surfaces.

Wet Dry 700 looks a bit like joint compound (dry wall mud), or cake icing with a simple 1 to 1 mix ratio that you can ‘eyeball’. A scoop of Part A and an equal scoop of Part B and you are ready to go.

This is one of our top selling epoxies. People first buy it for a specific project and then generally buy more just to have on hand.

"I cannot believe how incredible this Wet Dry 700 is. It's revolutionary. The original repair to my storm shelter would have lasted years if the shelter would just shifting around in the ground. DON'T STOP SELLING THIS STUFF!"  Jeff 1/2013

Basic No Blush epoxy -marine / floor / craft epoxy with bubble breaker additive

 

BASIC NO BLUSH -  one of our most popular epoxies and one of the most clear epoxies available. It has normal or slightly slow epoxy yellowing. It is commonly used for boat building or boat repair  as well as resealing or creating pebble deck surfaces (common around pools and patios in Florida and other warm states. Also used to fill knot holes and cracks in wooden slabs used for bars and tables (sometimes tinted black when filling cracks and knot holes). Forms a hard, fairly brittle surface that handles outdoor weather very well (excluding normal UV yellowing and UV breakdown). Also used on bar and table top surfaces under varnish. Being semi thick it will not lay completely level in temperatures under about 75 degrees. It does contain bubble breakers (which is why the Part A appears slightly cloudy in its container. For table and bar tops use the standard temperature curing agent. For other applications use the low temperature (down to about freezing) winter curing agent. For hot weather (upper 80s and 90s) use the slower summer curing agent. The special summer and winter curing agents are only available for this one epoxy. Comes in 3 quart and 1.5 gallon kits (2 to 1 mix ratio).

ESP 155 epoxy - epoxy primer, sealer, tie coat

 

ESP 155 - solvent based, thin, sealing epoxy often used on wood, concrete and fiberglass. The Part B ranges from clear to dark red. Not for sale in California. Yellows quickly. Commonly used as a sealer and primer under marine spar varnished (i.e. India Spar Varnish - not for sale in California) surfaces, such as bar tops, outdoor furniture and  bright-work on boats/yachts. Epoxy and Spar Varnish is a win-win combination. The varnish provides UV protection and a high gloss easily maintained surface and the epoxy provides a stable base for the varnish. For a thicker epoxy base, use Low V epoxy or Basic No Blush epoxy (listed below) under the varnish. Packaged in 2 quart kits (1 to1 mix ratio).

What is an MCU Coating? 

MCU stands for Moisture Cured Urethane and makes a very superior high performance  coating. These are a unique type of coating much better known in commercial industrial painting circles than within the general public market.  Most MCU coatings use tiny aluminum flake as pigment which gives them their classic silvery/gray color and enhances their remarkable properties.

MCU contain lots of solvents which aids in penetrating tiny cracks and crevices. The coating scavenges moisture from its contact surfaces and the air and undergoes an cross-linking molecular process which 'grips' or grabs onto surfaces for outstanding adhesion, even with poorly prepared surfaces. Removing internal surface moisture removes one of the key components necessary for rust development.

The resulting dry surface (aided by the stacking aluminum pigment platelets) provides a physical barrier to air and oxygen, another necessary component for rust to form.  The result is a thin, hard coating that seals our air, water, salts, minerals etc.  essentially encapsulating the surface  It therefore is one of the best, easy to apply, rust and corrosion control coatings.

Its amazing adhesion results in a versatile coating well suited for use on steel, aluminum, concrete, fiberglass, wood etc. It can be used as a primer/sealer, a middle coat or a exposed as a topcoat. The aluminum pigmented versions have no UV issues, can be applied at low temperatures and operate at temperatures of up to about 400 degrees F. Besides being used as a rust stopper is also has applications on  boats, roofing and flooring applications. In is used a lot in the industrial, automotive, marine and farm marketplaces. The AUTO RESTORATION market is one place these coatings are widely promoted within the 'DIY home' marketplace.  Learn more about Aluthane......

 

 

ALUTHANE  -  aluminum MCU (moisture cured urethane) super coating

Paul, (11/15),

Just wanted to let you know how well Aluthane works as a coating for a boat anchor. We have a 41 foot DeFever trawler with a 55# SuperMax anchor that dates to the late 1990s when they were first produced. Over the years and a lot of anchoring in various types of bottoms, the galvanized coating on the anchor had deteriorated to being almost non-existent and the underlying steel was starting to rust lightly. It's almost impossible around here (east coast of Florida) to get anything regalvanized, so looked for alternatives.

Aluthane jumped out at me as a good choice for a test. Before we departed on our latest 4500 mile cruise from Florida to Maine and return, I "painted" the SuperMax with two coats of Aluthane after brushing off all the rust I could and coating it with Ospho prior to the application of Aluthane.

Five months, lots of rain and ocean spray, and 51 nights at anchor in various types of bottoms from sand and gravel and rock to mud, the Aluthane had worn off at only the very tips of the anchor (the area that digs into the bottom) and exposed the underlying steel. The vast majority of the surface area of the anchor was still being protected by the Aluthane.

I just finished adding two more coats and it looks great!

OLD FASHION MARINE SPAR VARNISH

(VISIT OUR VARNISH PAGE)

 

Where to Use India Spar Varnish

Our India Spar Varnish has three primary applications. 1) applied over a thick or thin layer of epoxy used on table tops and bar tops. Vanish provides necessary UV protection that all epoxies need as well as a wear surface that can be polished to a mirror finish. 2) Varnish is used on 'natural' wood finishes on boats. Again, generally over epoxy (such as in Stitch - and - Glue  or wood strip construction)  but sometimes directly on the wood. If you using our Basic No Blush marine  epoxy (why not?) be sure to wash off and remove any amine blush that might have formed on the surface of the epoxy before you varnish it. Note that spar varnish is a solvent based coating that has been time tested for over a century on boats out in the sun and weather 24/7. You won't find any modern "polyurethanes " on these boats (keep the urethanes for indoor use - better still, use India Spar Varnish on inside applications too). 3) Use India Spar Varnish over naturally finished wood floors, usually over an epoxy primer - ESP 155 (or thicker epoxy like LOW V epoxy - used on shipping container floors) applied over the wood and under the varnish.
