Epoxy paints are very different from enamels, polys, and latex paints. Using them is more like painting with honey or molasses and they typically set slowly allowing time for drips and sags. Like all epoxies, they are not color stable and will yellow with time and UV. They are often top coated with enamels etc.

Epoxy paints are very different from enamels, polys, and latex paints. Using them is more like painting with honey or molasses and they typically set slowly allowing time for drips and sags. Like all epoxies, they are not color stable and will yellow with time and UV. They are often top coated with enamels etc. They generally cannot be applied with normal spray equipment. The epoxy paint does the work, the topcoating paint provides the look. If you are new to epoxy paints we suggest you order a small unit size to test and evaluate for your application. They are commonly used as barrier coats below the waterline, bilge coatings, as well as in tanks, pits and sumps.

This is the epoxy paint section (section 4) of our marine catalog. The link in the Link Section below explains the differences between epoxy paints and epoxy floor paints (mostly a self leveling - drip/sag thing). That said, floor epoxies can be used on non-floor surfaces. The water-based Water Bond (tm) epoxy is an exception. It goes on thin and dries/cures even thinner (probably thinner than a coat of hardware store enamel). Being so thin, it tends not to drip or sag. It also yellows much less than 'regular' epoxies. So be sure to visit our Floor Epoxy section as well, to expand your number of options. The Water Bond comes in a medium gray, and more importantly for boat owners, a medium blue. The blue very closely matches the traditional blue bottom paint color (also the very common sail cover / awning blue color). It would be a good product to give that 'bottom paint' look on a bottom of trailer based boats, etc. it is a close match to Behr paint American Anthem - 580B-7. As a barrier coat by itself it would probably need 4 coats or so..


Not all hulls are suitable candidates for an epoxy barrier coat. For example, fiberglass hulls that flex a lot will probably have adhesion problems (disbonding) of the hard, brittle epoxy when the hull flexs. Please read the WHAT CAN GO WRONG - HULL COATING DISCLAIMER at the bottom of our
barrier coat page for more information about coating issues on hulls as well as our legal disclaimer. All decisions regarding barrier coats and the results are the sole responsibility of the customer.


Note our CM 15™epoxy epoxy paint has much more flex than the Water Gard 300™ epoxy paint which is our most common and popular barrier coat epoxy. Our TA 661™ is an additive that can also increase the flex of an epoxy coating.


At the bottom of this page is some more comparison info between these epoxies. This is to help you decide which epoxy paint to use. We also make our suggestions there too, but keep in mind these epoxies are all very similar (we're really comparing apples to apples here!). Also on this page are comments etc. from boat owners who have applied our different barrier coat epoxy paints.

Coverage: All these epoxies will roll on at about 140 squ feet per gallon (about 8 mils), or brush or paint pad on at about 12-15 mils (100 - 120 squ feet per gallon). Generally, barrier coats are 10-12 mils total thickness. If my hull did not have much, or any, blister problem, I would be satisfied with a single 8 mil coat of these high performance epoxies. Note that the CM-15 is thinner (due to solvents) and I would expect more like perhaps 180- 200 squ feet of coverage per gallon and a dry thickness of 6 mils - however not enough feedback yet from users to confirm these 'estimated values' If the 6 mil figure is good, I would suggest 2 - 3 coats of CM-15.

How to estimate mil thickness (doesn't work with solvent based CM-15) - without allowing for any waste, 1 mil of any liquid will cover 1600 square feet. 16 mils will cover 100 square feet. 10 mils will cover 160 squ feet (values above allow for some waste - ie. soaking the roller, left over in pail, etc.).

Don't try to get the very last drops of epoxy out of your mixing container. The 'last drops' come from the corners and edges that don't get mixed very well. The result is sections of painted surface that will never get hard!

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


An all-surface, white, light blue, epoxy that goes on at 8-16 mils (with a brush or paint pad, thinner if applied by roller). Suitable as a BILGE COATING OR (MORE COMMONLY) A HULL BARRIER COAT EPOXY. (approx. 100 - 150 squ feet per gallon --- a 3 gallon kit will cover 300 - 450 square feet) Mix 2:1 by volume. Colors: slow yellowing white, light blue. We were impressed with the lack of rapid yellowing of the white color, while still non-hazmat to ship. NOTE: ALL THESE SOLVENT FREE EPOXY PAINTS ARE THICKER THAN 'REGULAR' PAINTS, ESPECIALLY AT TEMPS UNDER 70 OR SO DEGREES. WE GET 3-4 COMMENTS EVERY SPRING ABOUT THIS, BUT EVERYONE GETS THE COATING APPLIED! YOU CAN SAMPLE OUR SMALL TEST UNITS FIRST (SEE BELOW). STANDARD FIX IS A SMALL (WEE) BIT OF SOLVENT (MEK, ACETONE, XYLENE ETC. EPOXY VISCOSITY (AND POT LIFE) IS VERY TEMPERATURE DEPENDENT - IDEAL IS PROBABLY 75 DEGREES F).

Advantages: longish pot life, selection of colors, cycloaliphatic curing agent, non hazmat to ship so can ship overnight; uses a cycloaliphatic curing agent. This is a hard, rigid coating - very tough but if you think you need some 'flex' see our CM 15 listed on this page.


If you do decide to go with two coats (common if the entire gel coat has been removed) using a different color for each coat allows you to estimate how deep any future chips into the hull are (i.e. color coded layers!), as well as spotting thick and thin spots in the second coat.

Our formulator says this product has been used by the US Navy to paint anchor chains.


Note: because these 100% solids (solvent free), high end epoxy paints are all rather thick (especially in cool weather), we've had users report that they transfer the epoxy to the surface they're coating with a wide putty knife or drywall mud float and initially spread it out that way. They return with the roller or brush for final 'smoothing.' They liked this method much better than struggling with a roller only with the thick, sticky epoxy.

While many customers love this product, some are shocked at how thick these commercial epoxy paints are. For folks that don't like the thick nature of epoxy paints - we suggest you try the 1.5 quart test kit before committing to a 3 gal kit. (keeps everyone happy!) Our CM 15 epoxy paint (see below is thinner - but still thick - maybe 2 coats??)

Hi Paul,
I think we have some converts.. We barrier coated the bottom of my boat
and the guys loved your epoxy..They could not believe how easy it went
on and how fast it built up.. they also mentioned they liked the colors
blue and white. They commented on how nice it was to have
contrasting colors to see where they left off from coat to coat... I think you will
start getting orders out of Daytona Beach very soon... I have been
using your epoxy myself and find it is very easy to work with... I'm
glad I took the chance on you. Your epoxy does everything you said it
would..

Thanks Mike D.

EPOXY PAINT  ---  Water Prime ™ Epoxy Paint :

TWO PART WATER BASED (SOME SOLVENT), EPOXY PRIMER / SEALER / WATERPROOF. COLOR: GRAY or CLEAR


WATER PRIME™ EPOXY PAINT

PRODUCT PRO AND CON REVIEW

   
PRO user friendly water based (easy clean-up) - user friendly application (goes on nicely!)
CON water based products don't go over smooth slick surfaces well, don't like cold temps or high humidity


CANNOT BE SOLD IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

I've learned to coat practically everything I paint with an epoxy or similar base coat. Besides improving adhesion and making the top coat last longer, a sealed / waterproofed (2 coats) surface is a must for plywood and sometimes concrete. This pigmented (gray) waterbased epoxy is easier to use that the other coating options. Easy water clean-up and brushes on like latex paint (with fewer drips and sags of other epoxies). Pot life is hours (maybe days). Like most water based products it will bead up on smooth slick surfaces (like water on a waxed car). Also being water based (the water needs to evaporate away to set) not real happy with cold, damp conditions. It does contain some regular solvents so not for sale in southern California with very strict VOC limits for this class of coatings. Can also be used as a stand alone coating if you don't get around to topcoating. 4:1 mix by volume.

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

EPOXY PAINT  ---  Rough Coat:

ROUGH COAT™ EPOXY PAINT

PRODUCT PRO AND CON REVIEW

   
PRO Epoxy floor coating with fine non-slip grit already in it. Solvent based so pot life measured in hours.
CON Thin coating, only available in 1 color (can be painted over) - subject to blush - apply indoors if possible

 

This is a commercial product group/type generally not

floor epoxy paint with grit

This is our special floor epoxy with grit already mixed-in for non slip. It is solvent based, flexible, and rolls on at about 160 - 180 square feet per gallon kit. The solvents are necessary as they allow the grit thickened epoxy to roll our nicely and then 'shrink' down as the solvents evaporate away, allowing the grit to become fully exposed. We just couldn't achieve this nice distribution without the solvents. The end result is a floor with a grit surface. Texture is rougher than you would see in a shower, but still not 'industrial rough' - similar to what I have seen on custom wooden boats decks. One coat is fine, but two coats really masks the 'roller direction pattern' of the grit sometimes seen with only one coat, giving a slightly more textured surface with a more random pattern. It can be brushed on too, but the brush marks are very obvious. Unlike the Industrial Floor epoxy, but like the Water Bond epoxy, Rough Coat will not hide cracks and flaws on the surface. If you need to 'hide' cracks etc., use a base coat of the Industrial Floor Epoxy or our clear watery Low V epoxy under the Rough Coat. Being solvent based, pot life is measured in hours, not minutes.

A white film can sometimes form on the surface within the first 1 - 3 days if temps. are cool and dew/condensation form. Best applied indoors or in warm summer weather.

The color is a light tan or khaki. We selected this color because it has enough yellow it shouldn't show UV yellowing but it is light enough in color that you can topcoat it with a layer of latex or enamel in whatever color you want (and still have a non-skid texture). We have seen boat decks and patio decks etc. in this light tan woody color, and it is a color we don't have any other epoxy in, so it seemed like a good color to stock.

In terms of color and texture it seems to match the appearance of 'fine sharp sand in flat enamel' on small custom made wooden boats I've seen at the WoodenBoat show in Maine. The part A looks like whipped cream in the can but when mixed with the liquid part B it forms a nice coating.

Texture is suitable for bare feet.

This product has its own web page

Extreme high epoxy performance at an affordable price. A non-hazmat, 100% solids epoxy. Kevlar (tm) micro fiber reinforced for chip resistance, loaded with feldspar/ceramic for extreme toughness and mechanical properties. This water tolerant epoxy will bond to wet or damp surfaces and can even be applied underwater. Odorless, so ideal for application in confined spaces. Paint pad or brush on at 15 mils without sagging (thinner if roller applied). Ideal for barrier coats. Coverage about 100 square feet per gallon with brush - about 140 square feet per gallon with roller (almost all solvent free epoxy paints have this sort of roller application coverage). Forms a very hard surface for outstanding wear/abrasion resistance.

NOTE: ALL THESE SOLVENT FREE EPOXY PAINTS ARE THICKER THAN 'REGULAR' PAINTS, ESPECIALLY AT TEMPS UNDER 70 DEGREES. WE GET 3-4 COMMENTS EVERY SPRING ABOUT THIS, BUT EVERYONE GETS THE COATING APPLIED! YOU CAN SAMPLE OUR SMALL TEST UNITS FIRST (SEE BELOW). STANDARD FIX IS A SMALL (WEE) BIT OF SOLVENT (MEK, ACETONE, XYLENE ETC.

PRODUCT NOTES/COMMENTS:

Advantages: same longish pot life as the Water Gard 300 epoxy above; outstanding abrasion resistance, cycloaliphatic curing system, cold weather version available (i.e. the FAST version) for use when temperatures are under 65 degrees; 1.5 gallon packaging

Note: one underwater repair trick is to soak sponge/foam rubber with this epoxy and then jam (caulk) underwater seams, cracks, holes, etc. with the epoxy soaked foam. It will swell to form a tight seal and become rock hard.

This product comes in several 'flavors":


FC 2100 A - the original version (formerly FC 2100 epoxy) - 2:1 mix ratio, NON HAZMAT to ship - can be shipped by air.


FC 2100 FAST - a fast version (actually used for application cold temperatures - say 40 - 55 F)

Now you can use FC 2100 FAST in air or water temperatures as low as 38 degrees F. Use the fast version in temps. of 35 to 65 degrees F, the 2100 F and 2100 A in temps over 60 degrees. This FAST version (like the high temp version) requires hazmat or ORM-D shipping (must be shipped via ground only - no extra shipping charges).


FC 2100 HT - a high service temp version 4:1 mix ratio - this one is hazmat to ship - limited stock

High temperature version for use at temperatures 300 - 400 degrees F. now available too! (see our Epoxy temperature resistance site ) Will handle 300 plus degrees F dry temperatures after 150 degree post cure.

EPOXY PAINT  ---   CM 15 Epoxy Paint:

CM 15™ EPOXY PAINT

PRODUCT PRO AND CON REVIEW

   
PRO Lots of flex (for surfaces that expand/contract, flex or move), long pot life
CON Best if applied in temps over 60 degrees


EXCELLENT WARM WEATHER EPOXY - (long pot life - warm weather ) QUALITY EPOXY MASTIC PAINT - with lots of extra flex - compared to the more brittle, traditional epoxy paints.


CM 15 is a high solids (82%), two-part epoxy designed with a long pot life, slow cure, and outstanding flex. It contains proprietary resins, wetting agents and penetrants for superior bonding. It's long pot life (up to 2-3 hours at 75 degrees) and low/medium viscosity make it suitable for application in the hottest of climates. Designed with a lot of internal flex, CM 15 can handle thermal expansion and contraction of large surfaces without failing. With a coverage rate of between about 150-200 square feet per gallon, this is an affordable epoxy coating. Colors: ivory, black

Because if its long pot life and solvents, this epoxy applies more like "regular" paint than do the other epoxies. Note that at 60 degrees temp, painted surfaces are still tacky after 20-24 hours, so recommend for use above 70 degrees (or in hot weather when other epoxy paints will 'set up' too fast).

Two coats of this more flexible epoxy will make a suitable marine barrier coat (it is thinner than the Water Gard 300 barrier coat epoxy). Two coats of contrasting colors is a nice way to monitor coating thickness/ application quality control, etc. Note that when sanding you may detect a slight solvent odor, even months after application. This is OK.

Paul (4/2014):

Over the course of the last three days, I applied the black and then the ivory CM-15 epoxy paint to my fiberglass sailboat. It applied beautifully. The temperature ranged from 70 - 75 degrees and the humidity was in the 40-50% range most of the time. The last coat went on last evening about 6:30 pm with humidity creeping up a bit, due to an impending rain storm. Sanding at 24 hours was almost o.k.....not very much clogging, but some. I waited until 36 hours and it sands without any clogging.

DETAILS: 23' Sonar sailboat; best I could measure, about 140 sf to paint.

Mixed 1/2 of each gallon kit plus some solvent (2 oz) for each coat. Two coats of black, followed by two coats of ivory...all coats applied within 8-12 hours of each other.

Applied using your 9" close nap roller covers. Each coat took about 45 minutes to apply. Mixed......applied paint. No pot life issues and each half batch covered well with about 1/2 cup remaining after coverage. The last coat of ivory, I tried to apply more heavily and used all the paint, just as I finished. 

The surface is why I would call a mild orange peel texture...not glass smooth. As soon as I can sand, I intend to use a longboard with 120 grit to knock the high points down.

Thanks for a great product. Mark -from MO

EPOXY PAINT  ---  Novolac 555™  epoxy paint:

NOVOLAC 555™ EPOXY PAINT

PRODUCT PRO AND CON REVIEW

   
PRO

Cycloaliphatic novolac epoxy (superior temp and chemical resistance). Probably the only source for less than a gallon unit of a Novolac epoxy. Pot life measured in hours.

CON Novolac epoxies are expensive

Novolac 555 is a high solids (82%) cycloaliphatic novolac epoxy paint. Novolac epoxies are a special class of epoxies with enhanced chemical and heat resistance (basically you get one or the other, not both). This is our 'harsh environment' epoxy. This dark gray epoxy brushes or rolls on to surfaces nicely, in part due to the 18% solvents in the product. The solvents also give a pot life measured in hours, not minutes. Excellent abrasion resistance and can be applied to cold damp surfaces. Often used over polyester resins or 'regular' epoxies for the added protection it provides but can be, and is often used, by itself. Novolacs have gained added recognition due to recent articles describing ethanol based gasoline degradation of polyester and some epoxy fuel tanks. Coverage is about 125-150 sf per gallon.

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.
