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

NO PULLING OR DRAGGING

SLIDES OFF PUTTY KNIFE SMOOTHLY

Creamy yellow epoxy used for non structural fairing and filling of holes and voids. Unlike other thick epoxies it slides off a putty knife like a hot knife through butter without pulling or tugging the epoxy behind it. Stays somewhat soft for several days.

Available in 1.5 quart and 1.5 gallon units.

Crack Coat

BUY ONLINE NOW

SMOOTH AND FLEXIBLE

Dark Gray smooth and slick epoxy. About as thick as toothpaste. Uniquely flexible and will bend and move. Use on surfaces that need some "give" due to expansion and contraction, vibration, etc. Good for 'bedding' objects down. Can be applied on damp surfaces.

Available in three quart units.

Splash Zone A-788

ORIGINAL CHEWING GUM LIKE UNDERWATER EPOXY

The 'Granddaddy' of thick epoxies and underwater epoxies. About chewing gum thick - so thick it needs temps over about 60 degrees to even come out of the can.

Available in two quart and two gallon units.

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.

Find Stab Brushes and Regular Brushes in our MARINE CATALOG or in our HOME/COMMERCIAL CATALOG

Reasons for coating failures

Preparation problem 70%; application problem 12%; environment problem 6%; wrong paint selection 9%; bad paint 1%; adding thinner 2%


"At least 70% of premature coatings failures are traced back to 'surface preparation' whether referring to wood, concrete, or metal. In a commercial recoating project, the costs (and profit) associated with surface preparation are about 70% of the job. How extensive the surface preparation is will depend on the performance expectation of the owner... Know the A, B, C's of surface preparation - visible contaminants, invisible contaminants, and profile."

Dr. Lydia Frenzel, The ABCs of Surface Preparation, Cleaner Times, April 2001, pg. 42-44.


We've found that most problems are the result of recoating too soon. Recoat epoxies after 24 hours, for putting different kinds of coatings over each other, wait at least 48 hours. Our aluminum filled, moisture cured urethane is an exception. Topcoat within 16 hours.
