One Gallon of Epoxy will wet out: 60 sq. feet of .75 oz mat; 30 sq. ft of 1.5 oz mat; 85 sq. feet of 6 oz cloth; 54 sq. feet of 10 oz cloth; 35 sq. feet of 18 oz woven roving; 28 sq. feet of 24 oz woven mat

How much epoxy? To wet out 6-9 oz cloth, fill the weave with more than one coat, allow for waste, etc. figure about 50 - 60 square feet per gallon (my tests showed 97 sq. feet saturated by 1 gal of cloth).

PRODUCT PRO AND CON REVIEW

   
PRO Probably the best epoxy bargain available anyplace in terms of price and performance. Our reason for being in business.
CON Turns white if it gets wet within about 18 hours after application (early cure)
largest single order to date - 150 gallons


Our most popular and least expensive marine epoxy resin ("goo"). This is our basic epoxy resin - (boat building - fiberglass repair, etc.). To get a similar non blushing epoxy from our competitors you have to 'upgrade' from their regular product at considerable additional cost. Yet Basic No Blush ,marine epoxy is still cheaper than even their 'regular' epoxy. We get lots of emails and telephone calls from users (including long time users) of the other major marine epoxy brands. They usually complain about issues they are having with 'their old brand' - amine blush, set times, price increases, etc. They are ready to try a replacement product. These folks have convinced me that we have the BEST marine epoxy in addition to being HALF the price of the other brands. Try our 12 oz sampler, 3 quart unit, or 1.5 gal unit and see if you don't agree with them.

Our upgrade from Basic No Blush™ marine epoxy resin is our Premium No Blush™ marine epoxy resin (see below) which contains superior Cycloaliphatic curing agents - CLICK HERE for more information. It also contains no Nonyl Phenol or Formaldehyde (formaldehyde in competitor's curing agent - click here). The competition don't have anything like it. Find out why we have a 2:1 mix ratio instead of the 5:1 ratio used by one of our competitors - click here). Enamel (oil based) paints applied over fresh epoxies with Nonyl Phenol (that is nearly all epoxies) have extremely slow drying.

We don't think you can beat our prices. Basic No Blush™ clear marine epoxy has been our most popular epoxy: super price, perfect viscosity (I think - one of our other major competitors sells a very thin marine epoxy - actually we do too - see Low V below). It has become a favorite with home builders of strip and stitch/glue boat hulls.

Available in three versions (standard, 'cold weather-winter' (fast), and 'hot weather-summer (slow)) - same low price for each! The summer version has twice the pot life of the regular version - for temps over 80 degrees. AUTHOR'S NOTE: I'm doing epoxy/fiberglass cloth boat building here in NH using the Basic No Blush marine epoxy with the Winter (fast) curing agent. The epoxy is stored in my basement at 50 degrees. The boat building is happening in my garage at temps in the mid 30s. The epoxy is hard the next day.

The 1.5 gal units of Basic No Blush marine epoxy resin now come in one gallon plastic jugs. We offer pumps for these jugs. They are $12.50 a pair and one stroke of the pump dispenses about 1 oz. of product. The pumps do not work with the 3 quart kits of Basic No Blush marine epoxy. On our online, 3rd party storefront, you'll find the pumps listed with the Basic No Blush™ on the 'resins page'. Note: we don't really like the 'pump' approach to epoxies, but a majority of boat builders want the pumps and we've learned it is all about providing the customers with what they want and need and not about pushing my personal view on to the marketplace. I find their quality lacking, but we only get 1 or 2 complaints per 100 or so pumps we sell and we've not be able to find better alternatives to what we offer. So, pump away!

BASIC NO BLUSH (tm) MARINE EPOXY - review

 

boat building marine epoxy

Progressive Epoxy Polymers (epoxyproducts.com) Attn: Paul,

Attached is a zip file with photos, plan view, vessel description, and some shots of the previous builds of the same boat. I am using your Basic No-Blush marine epoxy as my sole epoxy coating & glue solution throughout this entire project and I just love your product! Having used all the major brands on the market today I find your epoxy to be the easiest, most consistent, and most forgiving marine epoxy product of them all.

This boat is being built in an unheated, semi-weather tight workshop, on an island on Lake Winnipesaukee (central New Hampshire) and consequently I'm more often working in temperatures outside of what is optimal for most epoxies. I've had success with your epoxy (with the Regular curing agent) setting up in temps in the low 50's and also behaving kindly with temps in the upper 80s to 90+. While pot life varies considerably in such a wide range your product is very consistent, predictable, and telling when it's time to 'wrap it up', which is definitely not so much the case with some of your competitors.

In addition, your pricing is very attractive and while price is not the primary reason why I use your product I definitely appreciate the value you offer, so thank you.

Jeff - 2014 - Offshore Skiff boat builder

basic no blush epoxy marine

basic no blush epoxy

Originally designed for Offshore Magazine, the Offshore Skiff was intended to be an economical shoal-draft family cruiser or alternately--in the open center-console version--an all-around utility boat. A skiff. of course, is any fairly small, shoal, economical vessel. She could be a 15-foot rowboat, a 30-foot Jersey sea skiff, or even a 36-foot 17,000-pound Sea Bright skiff. The Offshore Skiff, falls nicely in the middle of this range at 28-feet 3-inches overall , 24-feet waterline, 8-foot beam. 5400-pound displacement, and drawing a scant 1 1 inches to the bottom of her hull. (She draws 26 inches to the bottom of her outboard.)

"I just wanted to let you know that a couple of months ago I purchased 1.5 gallons of epoxy from you for injection into a port stringer on a waterski boat I recently purchased.  I have owned quite a number of boats power and sail requiring repairs to bring them back to where they should be. Your product was excellent in every respect. I thinned it myself to the specifications I felt the repair required and it turned out superb in every regard. I will be using your product in the future for blister repairs to a large sailboat I own and just wanted to thank you for providing an excellent product with value to the consumer."  Best Regards, Steve

Hey there,

I finally finished my boat. It is covered one end to other with y'alls epoxy. I really like your Basic No Blush marine epoxy and still no rash!

Mike Fields

(Mike had suffered from Epoxy Sensitivity and skin rashes from other epoxies. We don't know why he had no rash problem with our epoxy, but we're pleased that he didn't!)

“I started building Puffin in January of this year, and launched her in July. I have made a few changes to better meet my needs. Puffin is a joy to sail. She is fast and very forgiving. The pic I'm sending was taken in 25pmh plus wind on Greers Ferry Lake, AR. I plan to sail in the Gulf, and island hop along the Mississippi coast this summer.”

What is a Puddle Duck Racer? ( visit their web site - PDRacer.com)
The PDRacer is a developmental one design racing sailboat that is basically a plywood box with a curved bottom, and is the easiest boat in the world to build. The rules are aimed at keeping the lower 10" of all hulls the same, but the rest is up to the builder. A simple hull can be made from 3 sheets of plywood. If you work hard for 2 weekends, you can go sailing on the 3rd weekend.

Our BASIC NO BLUSH ™ marine epoxy is the endorsed epoxy within the Puddle Duck community.

BEST VALUE NON HAZMAT (CAN SHIP BY AIR AND/OR OUTSIDE THE USA)

PREMIUM NO BLUSH™ MARNIE EPOXY RESIN

PRODUCT PRO AND CON REVIEW

   
PRO Can be shipped worldwide by air without problem. Very high end resin system
CON Amber colored curing agent

Our newest epoxy, formulated as an upgrade from Basic No Blush marine epoxy by the same formulator. Premium No Blush marine epoxy is non-hazmat to ship so it can be easily air shipped anywhere in the country or overseas (customers living outside of the continental USA should consider this epoxy as their primary epoxy option). Lots of attention was focused during product development to get a product with just the right amount of give (flex) but not too soft - flexible. This epoxy has a fast 'time to sand' (i.e. "Hard Set" very rigid, provides max. strength and abrasion resistance ). Truly a premium epoxy with an amazing price. Medium pot life. Easy 3:2 mix ratio. (More on UV blockers) This product contains superior Cycloaliphatic curing agents - CLICK HERE for more information. It also contains no Nonyl Phenol or Formaldehyde. (formaldehyde in competitor's curing agent - click here)

Customers (spear gun maker in Egypt and a guitar maker in the USA) report a superior, smooth and glossy finish with the Premium No Blush that they don't get with other epoxies.

Subject: Epoxy paints and Premium blend works wonderful!
Date: Sun, 29 Aug. 2004 12:41:40 -0700 (PDT)
From: Jim
To: Paul O <info@epoxyproducts.com>

Paul,


Let me say how happy we are with your Premium blend marine epoxy resin. We were out putting on two large pieces of Kevlar material on our 32.5 ft Woods Eclipse Cat. Each piece then was about 32 feel long be about four ft. The Premium blend worked great even in 85 degrees temp. Two of us were able to put on the kevlar using about 3/4 gallon batches split in two, using two X-Tra large kitty litter containers to apply it with.....

Thanks again for the Premium blend -50 gallons last year ....LOVE IT!
JIM - (Canada)

--- and about 18 months later....


Hi Paul and co.;


I just did a test with your Premium blend marine epoxy and a very highly recommended slow epoxy from a major competitor.


I work in a hot plastic tent with heavy biax fiberglass so exothermic reaction/pot life is very important! So I tested the Premium blend and your best competitor. The competitor 's epoxy and your Premium were pored about two inches deep in plastic containers about two inches deep. The other stuff heated up quite warm in about twenty-five minutes or so at 22C degrees ,not bad but yours lasted much longer ! I didn't need it as the plastic cup got only a little warm ,not as much as the other guys by far!

So send me 50 gallons more please! I'll get in touch for the details.
thanks
Jim (Canada)

 

NOTES FROM JIM ON SHIPPING TO CANADA

We have twice had two packs of twenty-five gallon Premium Blend Marine Epoxy trucked across the border to the Canada Customs Bond Warehouse in Hamilton On.

We know roughly when the shipment is due and wait for the call to come pick up the goods. We then head over to the CC Bond warehouse and show our picture ID ,i.e. Drivers license. Then pay the GST/PST. No charges for the warehouse were asked for as we were there on the first day that they called.

The Customs agent acts as the Broker ,so they need to know what to classify the goods under ,in this case it's classified under glue. We then sign for the goods and pick up the 50 gallons of PREMIUM BLEND Epoxy in our case. It's best to be there at a quiet time as patience is required in this process, but it's worth it .

For proof of cost etc., Progressive Epoxy Polymers has the paper work on the boxes or the five gallon pails, so no problem there.

One way to avoid is having a Courier company just use their Broker. I've heard horror stories of Broker costs of $300. for small packages.So avoid that way by having it sent to CC Bond warehouse or picking it up at an address on the USA side.

I gave it a second coat and it was too darn beautiful and couldn't get myself to leave the room...your epoxy is just super.....compared to WS it’s a Rolls Royce.
 


 

premium no blush marine epoxy

Hi Paul,

 

Hope this finds you well....it just goes to see how long simple matters can sometimes take.... Here are some pics. Let me know what you think.

 

In terms of practical testing your Premium No Blush Epoxy in sea water...it is just Great...it stood against very harsh conditions and still going on very strong. Unlike W@@T Sys@@m Epoxy...it did not blush at all...and actually the yellowish color addition makes the guns even nicer...reacting with teak wood to a golden dark brown color...beat that!
 
Because of your epoxy, I had to recall most of the guns (coated with W@@T Sys@@m) sold locally and recoat them with your epoxy...just couldn't handle them coated any other way.
 
 
Best Regards,

Ihab - Egypt - Custom Spear Gun manufacturer

More feedback months later:  Again, I must add...your epoxy is proving more & more to be super...the more it cures...the better it gets...the more my spearguns look uniquely coated.

low v sealing epoxy

 action shot with IJN Kongo, IJN Nagato and DKM Bismark battling

three of over 50 model war ships sealed with Low V epoxy

see nwci.org

 

A fast setting, very clear, very thin epoxy that is easy to apply by brush or roller. It is the product of choice if adding solvent to make a penetrating epoxy (thin 10% with xylene to make an outstanding penetrating epoxy. See our PENETRATING page) or copper powder to make an epoxy/copper paint. Bonds well to damp/wet surfaces.

A very thin epoxy. Very clear and no bubbles - only a trace of amber color. Simple 2:1 mix. Use to seal wood surfaces, especially inexpensive plywood. Can also be used with fiberglass cloth. Recommended epoxy for use with our copper powder additive. Also use as a primer on wood and other porous surfaces, especially under polyurethanes. Unlike our 'hard epoxies' (Basic No Blush, Premium No Blush, LTC 38) this epoxy has a bit of 'natural flex' when applied as a thin sealing coat.

Mix really well - with parts A and B so thin and clear it is very easy to mix poorly and have uneven mixing within the same batch. This will produce tacky sections that never get completely hard and tack free.

Note: We have seen this product fisheye on old wood surfaces that have been 'bleached' and then stained. The oils in the stain or 'teak oil' (perhaps something in the wood bleach, I don't know) seem to remain in the wood despite solvent washing, sanding etc. Old teak trim is a good example. We've seen Low V fisheye on old teak being refinished that seemed to be 'weathered down to just wood'. I think the fix would be (not tested) to 'seal' the wood from the epoxy, say with a coat of solvent thinned varnish which would not be as affected by residual oils.

EMAIL (FEB. 06): Hello:

I just bought some of your Low V epoxy resin and it is superior in every way to the system 3 products I (formerly) used, their clear coat and mirror coat.

Less money, better adhesion, better flow, better release of trapped gas, clarity, speed of cure, and machineability. It's like night and day, and their product is nothing to laugh at!

Great Product, I will buy *whatever* I need from you in the future.....


GREG


EMAIL (March 09):

Remember me? I promised you a report on the results of using Low-V as an undercoat/sealer in a difficult exterior application (western red cedar porch steps). See email appended below. Here's an excerpt:

So I bought a gallon of Low-V, and I have started using it to treat my front steps. I have been thinning the Low-V with about 25% Xylene to increase penetration. I have to use 2 coats of latex to eliminate the brush marks and bare areas (as you advised earlier), and after 2 coats the coverage looks excellent and it appears to have bonded well. I'll let you know the results in about a year if you are interested in how well it stands up to the weather......

I thought you might like to hear a status update. Well it's been over 8 months, which included summer, fall, and winter weather, and the Low-V treated steps look great. There is NO blistering or peeling. The latex topcoat paint is adhering quite well. It hasn't endured rainy/warm/humid spring weather yet, but from what I'm seeing so far I am very optimistic. -- Russ

ESP 155 is a very thin, low viscosity, moisture tolerant, epoxy designed for priming and sealing. Use on wood and fiberglass to improve adhesion of urethanes and other paints. Firm up damaged wood. Unlike our competitor's penetrating epoxy, we pack 75% resin (vs. their 30%), enough to generally seal and prime in one coat (instead of several) yet with enough solvent (25%) to penetrate deeply. Also used as a concrete primer to reduce out gassing when top coating with solvent-free topcoats. A 1/2 gallon unit will probably cover about - 150- 200+ square feet of a fiberglass hull and about 100-125 square feet of porous wood. APPLY WITH BRUSH. Users report 1 1/2 gal kit enough to 'seal' the bottom (below the waterline) of a full keel 25-27 foot sailboat.


An example of just one application: priming glue lam lay ups prior to using regular unthinned epoxy. The thickened epoxy doesn't soak into the wood like solvent thinned epoxy. When regular epoxy is applied over solvent thinned epoxy like ESP 155 within a day or two of application, the two epoxies chemically bond to one another. This creates a two stage adhesion. The lower layer is the thinned epoxy soaked into the wood and the upper layer is the thicker 'regular' epoxy.


Generally epoxies used as primers use lots of solvents and the lowest quality epoxy available. ESP is an amazing exception, probably nothing else like it available. It uses a top of the line
cycloaliphatic curing system as a starting point! The other 'penetrating/sealing' epoxies are very vague about the epoxy they use in their product - bottom of the line, el cheapo stuff I would imagine.


Alternative product: add solvent to our solvent free LOW V epoxy



½ gallon kit - $48 cannot be sold in Southern California (LA)


PRODUCT NOTES/COMMENTS:



Copper powder can be added to epoxies (including our ESP 155™ epoxy sealer), our traditional India Spar Varnish™, our clear water-based Water Prime™ epoxy, and our water-based acrylic sealer Bio Vee Gloss™ as a decorative pigment. Copper powder can be found in our
Marine Catalog as well as in our Industrial/home Catalog.


A little bit of our brown and/or red pigment (
marine link / res. link) added to our clear epoxy sealer - ESP 155™ (marine link / res. link), traditional India Spar Varnish™ (marine link / res. link), or our 2 part LPU clear polyurethane - Acrylic Poly UV Plus™ (marine link / res. link), works like a high end stain on wood surfaces without the issues of compatibility. Tinting a first coat of a clear product (with white pigment for example) can mean fewer fewer topcoats of white paint. Also it is much easier to brush or roll on an even, uniform layer of coating when that coating is slightly pigmented instead of clear. It is very hard to see what you are doing when applying a clear coating.

"WOW! Just completed one coat of ESP 155, then Epoxy Cream to fair, two more coats of 155. I'm delighted with the finish. I just didn't order enough.
Thanks for great advice." --- M.B. 9/2010 (boat repair project)

Epoxy "Stab Brush" --  "Regular Brush"

Use with products on this page

buy separately or include with your order

STAB BRUSH - 3 inch wide with 3/4 inch bristles. Most epoxies are too thick for a regular brush. Stab brushes allow you to push and move the epoxy around and 'stab' or poke it into cracks, voids, and corners

REGULAR BRUSH - 2 inch wide and extra thick with synthetic bristles. Use with varnish, paints and thin epoxies. Priced for disposable use.
