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.

WINTER BOATING: Don't let winter stop you boat repairs/building. Basic No Blush marine epoxy with fast winter cure works down to about 38 degrees. Aluthane mcu aluminum paint can be applied down to about 40 degrees.

Part 1 (non blushing epoxy resin systems)

All epoxies ("goo") are not the same. Look for non blushing marine epoxies - even if they cost a few bucks more. With a blushing marine epoxy (most of the epoxies sold are blushing epoxies) - you might always wonder if you have a good bond between coats and why you're paint isn't sticking. Plus you have to wash the surface between coats to remove the visible or invisible blush.

If the epoxy manufacturers really cared about your needs they would only sell you non-blushing epoxies (speaking in general terms - there are always exceptions) and not even offer blushing epoxies upon unsuspecting buyers.

Amber colored curing agent helps bring out the color of natural wood finishes

 

  We do have regular customers that exclusively like and use the Premium No Blush over the Basic No Blush. The amber non hazmat curing agent (the Basic No Blush has a clear curing agent) provides a bit of warm color and maybe hides some of the UV Yellowing. I've hard reports that it is a slightly softer finish too (soft means more impact resistance). A very Premium marine epoxy at a price of about that the other guy's charge for their 'regular' epoxy.

Part 2 (epoxy additives I)


Nonyl phenol is a non solvent additive that can be used added to either Part A or Part B. It does have some useful properties, but is often more widely used to 'water down' the epoxy, making it much cheaper to manufacturer and giving the vendor much higher profits. Nonyl can also retard the drying of enamel paint over epoxy. If you want to enamel paint your epoxy project either use a primer over the epoxy or use our Premium No Blush epoxy.

no blush marine epoxy stitcvh and glue


Part 4 (non hazmat alternatives)

Some epoxies are non-hazmat to ship (again, very few) - big thing here is that the non hazmat curing agents generally have a more gentle exotherm and slower more uniform curing - (doesn't get super hot, melt containers and turn hard in the blink of an eye). Note that the hazmat epoxies must be shipping by ground, not air, but generally no additional cost. Non-hazmat curing agents tend to be amber colored, hazmat curing agents can be amber or clear. More on Hazmat shipping - CLICK HERE (epoxy shipping)


Hazmat or not - the ones with a more gentle exotherm always seemed better to work with - no worry of 'bubbling up or melting' the areas you are working on.

Part 5 (formulated marine epoxies and pricing)

 

The 'serious' marine epoxies are formulated using the raw resins manufactured by the giant chemical companies. Many (some?) low cost epoxy vendors merely repackage these raw bulk resins. Not a good thing!

 

 

copper epoxy boat bottom paint

The "drum to jug" repackagers come and go. New one seem to pop up every week. You want do do business with folks that actually formulate their marine epoxies - going two or three steps beyond the repackagers.

So who are the marine epoxy formulators?

* WEST

*MAAS

*SYSTEM 3

*Progressive Epoxy Polymers (that's us ---  WHO ELSE GIVES YOU THE NAMES OF THEIR COMPETITORS ON THEIR WEB SITE?)

- Epoxies have been our focus since 1994 - 20 years of 2 part epoxy every single working day. We are also the smallest of those four companies. Our standard marine epoxy, Basic No Blush, is equal or better (SEE USER COMMENTS) than the other formulated marine epoxies and up to half the price of their marine epoxies (our prices/markups  are too low/small  to attract distributors - so we sell only via the internet and pass the 'distributor markup' to you - more on marine epoxy pricing).

A few 'repackagers' offer their epoxy at slightly less than we charge for our formulated Basic No Blush marine. epoxy.

 

 

Why Basic No Blush epoxy is the BEST in its class:

1. A formulated blended resin system (not repackaged raw chemicals)

2) Uses only NON BLUSHING curing agents

3) not too thick, not too thin, not too brittle

4) strong user support / feedback

5) 24/7 support

 

 

The difference between repackager epoxy and formulators' epoxy is like the difference between a glass of alcohol and a glass of Jack Daniels.  Most folks want the 'real stuff' and that's the reason that formulators like XXXX (pricey) and us (PROGRESSIVE EPOXY POLYMERS - epoxyproducts.com) remain much more popular marine epoxy suppliers than the few repackagers that work the marine epoxy marketplace (and epoxy table top and pebble stone re-sealing markets).

Part 6 (mix ratios)


Mix ratios as close to 1:1 or 2:1 are better as they tolerate slight errors in the mix ratio better. Given an error in a 5:1 mix ratio and you can suddenly be mixing it at 4:1 and not knowing it. The result might not be good. More about mix ratio errors -
CLICK HERE (epoxy mix ratios). Most epoxies have a 1:1, 2:1 or 3:1 mix ratio (by volume).

The part B curing agent is much more expensive than the part A resin. By designing their marine epoxies to use less curing agent per amount of part A resin, a company maximizes their profit at your expense.

They have manufacturing date or batch numbers on all their products for quality control and better customer service. Most will list the professional qualifications of their technical staff.

A favorite 'trick' of mine is to email a question to a vendor and see if, or how long, it takes them to reply. Especially over a weekend or holiday. Actually, it is my experience that most email product questions are ignored. Email replies tell you lots about the personality of the company you are considering doing business with. The good ones reply quickly so you don't lose much time in placing your order.

Horror Stories Using Competitors'  Budget Epoxies

BACKGROUND: There are two types of epoxy vendors. The 'serious' professional grade epoxies  are formulated by beginning with  the raw resins manufactured by the giant chemical companies. Call these companies EPOXY FORMULATORS.  Generally the low price epoxy vendors merely repackage these raw bulk resins. Not a good thing!  Call these companies EPOXY REPACKAGERS. Lots of repackagers focus on the marine epoxy marketplace. Repackaged epoxy It is the difference between Moonshine and Jack Daniels. Use only FORMULATED SPECIAL PURPOSE EPOXIES LIKE THOSE SOLD IN THIS WEB SITE. Going cheap can have very $$$ consequences. See Below:

EXAMPLE 1:  A commercial epoxy pour contractor recently used our Bio Clear 810 pour on  epoxy to replace a badly yellowed epoxy covered logo in the INSIDE  floor of regional airport terminal with our 'almost no yellowing' Bio Clear 810 (cyclo-aliphatic epoxies to the rescue!) We don't know for certain that the original contractor used some inexpensive REPACKAGER'S epoxy, but it certainly sounds like it.

EXAMPLE 2: I recently got a phone call from someone using "marine type" epoxy to seal wooden tables they were selling. They were using 'cheap' epoxy from a  REPACKAGER (uxcoxxxxxxxs). After six months the epoxy on the tables all exhibited millions of tiny cracks (like shattered safety glass). This wouldn't have happened with a specially formulated epoxy designed to overcome the 'flaws' of the raw resins. Bad news for them.

EXAMPLE 3: Another phone caller told me how they had ordered over a hundred gallons of epoxy in two separate orders from a low cost REPACKAGER (bxxxbxxxxxxxxxy). The first batch worked fine but the second batch failed completely. The vendor knew it was their fault (bad batch? wrong barrel to jug pour out?) and refunded their money. But that didn't undo the damage done.

What You Can Tell From an Epoxy MSDS Doc.


Most telling is the MSDS for the Part B curing agent (two part epoxies will have an MSDS for both the Part A and the Part B). The curing agent (Part B) MSDS that tells the best story. Unfortunately, the MSDS usually doesn't tell as much as you wish it would.
Section two in MSDS documents list the primary ingredients in the product. Some vendors proudly list their high end chemicals. Others decide to hide as best they can legally the ingredients of their products. Good or really good products will probably list: cycloaliphatic, or cycloxxx, or aliphatic followed by amine or polyamine. They also might use the words modified amine or modified aliphatic amine, yet they could all be the same thing. Again, not very useful for figuring out what you have or for comparing against another vendor's product.


The term Adduct is a good thing to see. Adducts use a little bit of the epoxy resin in the curing agent. This improves properties and blush resistance.


In very general terms, if the Part B uses the term cycloaliphatic and amine or polyamine and or adduct, you probably have a top tier quality epoxy. Seeing "aliphatic amine' might suggest a really good, albeit, second tier epoxy (or a top tier epoxy hiding its top tier roots). Clues, at best. Most, maybe all, underwater epoxies are use cycloaliphatic curing agents.


Even the Part A resin (Bis A generally) comes in flavors. Add that to the nearly endless blends of amines, polyamines, amides, in aliphatic or cycloaliphatic form, as well as other additives and a formulator can develop a product with just about any property desired (viscosity, blush or no blush, chemical or solvent resistance, flex, pot life, etc).


Perhaps more telling from an MSDS than the chemistry of the epoxy, is the red flag addition of excessively large amounts of nonyl phenol or solvents. Another red flag (not found in the MSDS sheet) is the requirement of letting the epoxy sit for some amount of time after mixing and before using. This is often called induction time or sweat in time. Generally only very low end epoxies have induction time requirements.


Technically, MSDS documents should be dated within the last 5 years. I've seen MSDS documents from major formulators that are dated well over 10 years ago. Even our products have outdated MSDS sheet that slip by our attention (where do the years go?). Read what you want from this oversight.

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

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.)

Paul-

My little company in upstate NY produces seaplane pontoons and an occasional racing sailboat. Loved your basic no blush marine epoxy.
you should mention that when mixing large batches (1/2 gallon) it doesn't do the exotherm thing as quickly as west. On a warm
day with west you almost can't finish mixing before it starts to get hot hot hot.

Excellent web site!!! I have started testing your "Basic No Blush Epoxy". Wow! Good stuff and affordable too. I intentionally incorrectly mixed your product to test its sensitivity to mix ratio variations. Very, very forgiving. The pot life is very consistent even with some variation in ratio and set up is consistent as well. It also does not seem to flash as easily as other epoxies I have worked with. I got by working in the 16 oz. mixing cups without having to pour to a wider flat bottomed container. I usually wait till an epoxy starts to flash or just slightly heats up in the cup before I pour it into an ice cream bucket. That is of course not a summer time practice but my shop can get down to 60 F. in the winter. But your product did not seem to heat a lot. I was even a little nervous about it setting up but it cured like a champ! I am very happy with your Basic No Blush and I'll be back for more.

Sincerely yours -- J.A.


 

I've been using the basic on all my own stuff, and using up all the west 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...

We also have Premium No Blush Marine epoxy which uses a non-hazmat curing agent that allows us to send it by air or out of the country without problem. It is a favorite with our boat building customers in Canada and we've sent it boat builders in Japan and Australia. Here is feedback from a customer in Egypt that uses it to make custom spear guns.

 

premium no blush marine epoxy

custom spear gun with Premium No Blush protective finish

Hi Paul,

Hope this finds you well... 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.


Another customer of ours (5/2013) uses the Premium No blush on parts of custom guitars that he makes. He also reports a superior finish with this epoxy compared to the finishes he gets with other epoxies.


Personal preferences:

1) Viscosity (thickness). Our Low V epoxy and our Bio Clear 810 (cycloaliphatic - low yellowing) epoxy are both extra thin and watery - often used for sealing, diluted with solvent and used as a penetrating epoxy (we also have a thin sealing epoxy - ESP 155), or mixed with our copper powder to create a copper-rich coating. Our Basic No Blush and Premium No Blush (another cycloaliphatic based epoxy) are excellent medium viscosity epoxies - my favorites for general purpose laminating, repairing etc.

2) Brittleness. Some epoxies are more brittle than others. Test my making a block or cube of your epoxy and squeezing in a vise or hitting with a hammer. Our old Basic No Blush™ was quite brittle, our new Basic No Blush™ is not, neither is our Premium No Blush™.


Health Issues

Some people develop a serious skin rash etc. after working with epoxies (skin contact) over a period of years. It has ended more than one 'epoxy career'. It seems to vary slightly from epoxy to epoxy, but there is probably no escape if you develop this sensitivity. Factors that may affect this issue include: formaldehyde in the formulation, nonyl phenol in the formulation, blushing epoxies (because you have to physically 'clean' the not fully cured epoxy). Our Premium No Blush™ epoxy is formaldehyde free, non blushing, nonyl free, and non hazmat to ship!

DESCRIPTION

 

Basic No-Blush™ is a 100% solids, marine grade epoxy coating system designed for general marine/

boating applications. It will not blush or water spot under normal conditions. It is available with three

different curing agents, a fast cold weather (a slightly yellow curing agent), our standard clear curing

agent, and a thicker, amber colored slow warm weather curing agent. The standard cure version is also

widely used for resealing epoxy/pebble flooring systems.

 

The slow summer curing version is ‘viscosity adjusted’. Because epoxies become thinner (less viscous)

in warmer weather, the summer curing agent has been thickened to approximate the viscosity of

the standard No-Blush epoxy at approximately 70F.
