Things go better with Fiberglass
We sell 9 oz fiberglass cloth in 50
yard rolls. Three inch or four inch
wide fiberglass "tape". The "tape"
is easier for beginners to work with
than big sheets of fiberglass -
(saturate with epoxy and apply like
strips of duct tape). Use for
boat-building and/or repair, epoxy
pipe wrap projects, and basement
leak repair (sort of a dry-wall tape
system but using fiberglass cloth
and epoxy. Note that when using
epoxy and fiberglass cloth, the
strength comes from the fiberglass
cloth and not the epoxy. - Order the
3 inch or 4 inch fiberglass rolls at
either of our on-line stores or call
to order your epoxy and cloth - 603

Nearly all boat projects require multiple products: structural repair putties, fairing compounds, barrier coats, primers and sealers, laminating resins with fiberglass cloth and fillers. Generally people need help with product selection, amounts and application. No web site can give all this support, especially when so many things are involved. Our customers call 24/7 including nights, weekends and holidays for that kind of pre-purchase advice and application help. It is the only way to get a two way conversation to happen. 603.435.7199 EST

Wet Dry 700 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

Spongy Boat Deck Core
"I used your low-v epoxy to reattach my deck to it's core deck this year. A lot of the products on the market for "flooding" a delaminated deck use watery-thin epoxy that is full of thinners. They cure up gummy, or brittle, they shrink, and they seep away from voids rather than filling them in. That low-v is thin enough to flow _everywhere_ without the burden of all those thinners.
My strategy involved small hole-saw holes in a 1-foot polka-dot pattern, large enough to fit a crow-bar to lift up the top laminate a little, and then an array of smaller holes to make sure I had complete coverage. I'd lift a little laminate with the crow bar, pour in the low-v, and after a few minutes it would start pouring out of all the lower holes. I set weights down on the deck to squish it all together tightly after I was content that the entire area had been flooded. It was amazing the little holes that the Low-V would find and start dripping out of from below. I had to be very careful staging my drip-collection in the cabin as a result.
The Low V epoxy is thin enough to flow everywhere, but thick enough to hold a nice film in place to bridge any high spots my weights hadn't eliminated. And no thinners to trap inside the deck.
You've got to start marketing this stuff directly for "flooding" delaminated decks! My decks went from spongy soft to rock solid."
Satisfied Customer 4/16
Low V epoxy is solvent free, thin and bonds to wet or damp surfaces. Popular for all sorts of ROT repair and for sealing the floors (from chemicals) on Shipping Container sold to the public.
Epoxy Crazing Notice/Warning
There are two types of Marine Epoxy Vendors: 1) discount, bulk, REPACKAGERS who simple buy drums of raw resin and raw curing agent(s) from the big chemical companies and fill plastic jugs for resale; 2) FORMULATORS take the raw epoxy chemicals add to them to enhance and improve the raw "moonshine" into a "fine whiskey". Learn more repackagers/formulators.
Our Basic No Blush (tm) is a formulated non blushing epoxy by Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. (homepage). that includes additions for reduced brittleness and exclusive (only we have it) bubble breakers for a more perfect looking finish. Basic No Blush is the least expensive of the formulated epoxies and considered the best marine epoxy by many ex-users of the other formulated epoxies.
REPACKAGED EPOXY WARNING: Over the years I have seen and had reports of non-formulated, raw resin/cure epoxies (which are extremely hard and brittle) becoming crazed with millions of cracks (like shattered safety glass) in outdoor settings that experience big changes in temperature. Formulated epoxies all seem to be 'fixed' to allow for this expansion and contraction without cracking by making them less brittle and better able to handle internal stresses.
"I've been using the Basic No Blush epoxy on all my own stuff, and using up all the West epoxy on most customers boats. When the West is finally gone I'll only be using your epoxies. Good stuff. I'm rebuilding an old Rybovich so a big order in the future..." Patrick (comment with on-line order 9/4/07) ---- Order No Blush online
One of our marine epoxy competitors (now a mere impersonal, product line sub-division within a big industrial corporation) claims a 30% savings in time using non blushing marine epoxies. Non blushing marine epoxies do not require washing or sanding between epoxy coats or top coating with other paints. Note that we offer Basic No Blush marine epoxy with fast, slow and regular curing agents (and it also includes bubble breakers for a more perfect finish). Our Premium No Bush epoxy is Nonyl free and uses an special curing agent is can be air shipped (shipped without restrictions).
"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 water ski 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
"Salvaged 45' sailboat. Purchased all my epoxy from you. I've been in the water two years and time to redo the bottom. Very happy with all the advise and delighted with how good the bottom held up. Started with 155, epoxy cream, `155 and three coats of Cm15 for barrier coat." MASON 11/16
Dec 2008 from Doug: "The following is my opinion of a good company. My affiliation is as a DIY end user. No recompense, no funny business: I've been refurbishing our 1973 ketch and have done some epoxy work in that process. I've never worked with epoxy before this. I talked to several local glass workers and researched on line to learn a bit about epoxy. I searched for different vendors and their prices. I settled on a place in New Hampshire called Progressive Epoxy Polymers. (http://www.epoxyproducts.com)
My first thought was, what a mess of a website. I found it very confusing. Since I first came upon it, there have been improvements made to make it more "user friendly". Aside from that, the site is most informative to this beginning DIY's. I was won over by the explanations, descriptions of chemistries, MSDS's , suggested usages, and personal responsiveness of the owner and his wife. I did a calculation of prices per ounce, approximating the match of the different brand's products. I realize that there is no way I can say I'm comparing the same chemistry of different brands. Nevertheless, Progressive Epoxy prices remain the best I have found.
I've used the Premium No Blush (~15 gallons), Low-V (~2 gal), a putty with kevlar, and some elastomeric stuff. In addition I've used the fumed silica, micro balloons, ezy-thick, chopped glass & milled glass.
Progressive Epoxy Polymers is my epoxy source, I recommend them."
