WARNING: Don't buy epoxy from any source  that doesn't have batch numbers or Date of Manufacture stamped on to  their products labels.. Like all primary source manufacturers and vendors, we track each each unit with a batch number or manufacturing date hand added to each container label. It is a labor intensive, hands-on process that marketing based companies and firms that just want to push product and take your money don't do.

Only buy your epoxy chemicals from vendors that label their epoxies with actual batch numbers or Date of Manufacture.

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.

We were pleased to report that our Basic No Blush™ epoxy is also ideal for the construction and the resealing of ‘pebble decks' common around swimming pools and patios. The right combination of price, performance and viscosity (not too thin, not too thick) has made it a favorite with pebble deck owners for almost a decade. This market now accounts for about 25% of the Basis No Blush™ sales.

Basic No Blush marine epoxy and India Spar Varnish

 

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."

 

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

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

2) Uses NON BLUSHING curing agent for blush free results

3) not too thick, not too thin, not too brittle - ever see an epoxy surface with millions of tiny cracks? It is brittle, repackaged (see #1) not formulated epoxy

4) the only marine type epoxy with bubble breakers for superior flaw free finishes and uniform properties and appearance and allows for thicker, multiple layers with better clarity

5) the only epoxy adduct marine type epoxy for superior enhanced properties (standard cure only)

6) strong user support / feedback

7) 24/7 support email marineepoxy@gmail.com

8) less expensive than the other formulated epoxies which still don't have many of the advantages listed here

Section 1  - Product information and notes

 

Our No Blush marine epoxy comes in two version. The most popular is the

BASIC NO BLUSH (tm)

(available with Slow Summer, Regular, or Fast Winter curing agents)

 

we also offer

PREMIUM NO BLUSH (tm)

 

Note that our Premium No Blush™ epoxy uses a more pure and higher grade of resin as well as a special amber colored curing agent that can be air shipped both nationally and internationally without extra fees or paperwork. The Basic No Blush™, on the other hand, can only be shipped by ground and only in the lower 48 states. The differences are explained in greater detail below.

Most of our marine epoxy sales are Basic No Blush

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.
   

 

The little bit of FLEX formulated into BASIC NO BLUSH Epoxy (tm) makes a big difference in outdoor/marine/all weather applications.

 

Epoxies, because of their chemistry, are hard and brittle. They will crack or even shatter into lots of pieces with any sort of impact. You may have seen epoxy tabletops and surfaces with millions of tiny cracks throughout the epoxy.

Brittleness is an important property of epoxies that few vendors ever bring up. When and if problems associated with brittleness occurs, it is well past the time to blame the epoxy vendor for this unadvertised negative property. Look for honest vendors that mention brittleness issues on their website.

Brittleness/flex issues is one of the most important reasons for not buying your epoxy from an epoxy REPACKAGER, even if they have cheaper prices. (REPACKAGERS simply buy drums of raw resin and drums of raw curing agents from the big chemical companies and pour it out into smaller jugs for resale).

Epoxy FORMULATORS (who use the raw chemicals but then add or modify or formulate those chemicals for better user properties) can add flex agents to their epoxies to reduce brittleness. Our Basic No Blush epoxy is a good example. About 12 years ago we decided the epoxy was too brittle so we changed the formulation to add some extra 'flex' and reduce brittleness. For several years we called this new formulation Basic No Blush Two. We then dropped the "Two" and went back to calling it simply Basic No Blush epoxy once again.

Note that even the "NO BLUSH" term shows this epoxy uses more expensive chemicals that do not "Blush" during curing which can leave behind a waxy film in cool and damp environments. Most epoxy vendors sell the cheaper epoxies that do BLUSH)

In summary, epoxy REPACKAGERS cannot modify their epoxies to reduce brittleness. Only epoxy FORMULATORS can adjust the epoxy chemistry to reduce brittleness. That said, not all of them do. One of the major marine epoxy vendors is know to have a very brittle product.

For marine or Landscape applications always use BASIC NO BLUSH EPOXY from Progressive Epoxy Polymers.

Hello Paul  --  Sending photos of the shower my wife Regina and I designed. We wanted the shower floor to convey a beach feeling. To achieve the effect, white cement was used and tiny sea shells were pressed into the surface. After the concrete cured I took your advice on which epoxy to use to encapsulate the sea shells (Basic No Blush).

It was a bit tricky to keep the epoxy from all flowing into the drain. :-)

After brushing on three coats I used a hole saw to cut thru the Basic No Blush epoxy that had collected over painters tape covering the drain. Heeding your warning that wet epoxy is dangerously slick, I finished the job with a top coat of acrylic sealer with a glass dust nonslip additive. The results are beautiful and safe.

Thanks for the advise and great epoxy product.  --  Best Regards -- Mike

 

No Blush™ epoxy resin system Product Philosophy:



Basic No Blush™ is our cornerstone product. It was designed and priced to "Knock the socks off the competition" in quality and price and thus steal enough of their business to quickly make us profitable and successful. We still follow that plan.

We are about half the price of our most of our competitors who can probably make their epoxy much cheaper than we can. Their cost are most certainly under $45 per gallon - probably well under. Their distributors typically get 50 or 60 percent off list price, and you know the manufacturer is still making a great profit even then. Bottom line - any product sold through agents and distributors has to have huge markups to keep everyone in business. You pay a hefty premium for the convenience of buying it locally. Also, every color brochure, every trade show display and every 800 telephone number is costing you several additional dollars per gallon. While these ‘extras' are nice when you initially begin using a product, to have to keep paying for them purchase after purchase, year after year, becomes very expensive.

We don't have distributors. You have to buy direct from us. To keep our price really low, our markup is not large enough to be of interest to any distributor and there is no room in the price structure for massive discounts. The mark-up on our Basic No Blush™ remains the lowest of all our products, in accordance with our efforts to capture our competitors' customers. For you that means the best epoxy bargain in terms of price and performance available anywhere.

When comparing epoxies from different vendors note the following details (besides price):

1) like the epoxies from the major marine epoxy vendors, our epoxy is formulated for specific properties using resins and curing agents from the tiny number of giant chemical companies that make the raw epoxy chemicals. Generally the ‘budget marine epoxy' vendors simply repackage the bulk raw resins from those giant chemical companies;

2) the differences in the mix ratios between Part A and Part B don't really tell you much about the epoxy except that the Part B is way more expensive than the Part A resin so that the less Part B needed per unit of Part A means more profit for the manufacturer (and a somewhat more likely chance of an off-ratio mix for the user);

3) Non blushing (or more accurately ‘less likely to blush') epoxy curing agents cost more than the ‘regular' curing agents. We use the non blushing curing agents. Most of our competitors also offer non blushing marine epoxy, but at a much higher price than their ‘regular' epoxy. Our Basic No Blush™ is much cheaper than even their ‘regular' marine epoxy. Be sure you are comparing ‘apples to apples';

4) we do have large volume prices for 15 and 30 gallon units shipped direct from the factory (and usually made specifically for your order) and packaged in five gallon pails. What makes this especially appealing is that our customers can order any amount of the epoxy, from 15-29 gallons, at the per gallon price of the 15 gallon kits. If you need 22 gallons of epoxy for your project, you don't need to order two 15 gallon units, you can order just 22 gallons. The same applies with the 30 gallon unit pricing and orders over 30 gallons. And you get freshly made product, not old inventory;

5) our regular non blushing curing agent accounts for most of the Basic No Blush™ sales, but we do offer curing agents for use in very cold or very hot weather. While these curing agents cost more, we charge the same price for them in our 1.5 gallon kits (1 gallon of resin and ½ gallon of curing agent). Unlike our competitors who make you pay the difference, we swallow the extra cost, keeping it simple (and cheaper) for you.

Basic No Blush IS THE ONLY MARINE EPOXY FORMULATED WITH EXPENSIVE BUBBLE BREAKERS to give a more flawless, perfect finish.

Everyone Pays Distributor Prices for our

Basic No Blush (tm) Marine Epoxy Two Part Resin  System

First the basics: Four things you need to know about marine epoxies


1) A handful of the giant chemical companies make epoxy resins and curing agents. The major marine epoxy companies - WEST, MAS, SYSTEM THREE, PROGRESSIVE EPOXY (that's us!) purchase these raw materials and then formulate/blend/modify them into their marine epoxy products. The small, discount epoxy sellers buy the bulk raw chemicals from the giant chemical companies and decant them into small units for resale. They do not formulate or modify/blend the raw chemicals. They simply repackage the 'raw' resins.

2) The 'standard' epoxies will 'blush' produce a waxy surface film during curing. All the vendors offer better, more expensive, non blushing marine epoxies. Progressive Epoxy (that's us) sells only non blushing marine epoxy (Basic No Blush ™ and Premium No Blush™ , our nonhazmat to ship version).

3) Most epoxies are sold through agents, resellers and distributors. Distributors usually get the epoxy at 50% (40%-60%) off the list price. They double the price and sell it to end users like you. So most epoxies are sold by the manufacturers at 'half price' or 'distributor pricing' to distributors who mark it up and resell it. PROGRESSIVE EPOXY POLYMERS does not use distributors or resellers. You can only get Basic No Blush epoxy directly from us. Compare and you will find our prices are 50% less than the end user prices our competitors list. Our epoxy is equal or better in quality - our prices are 'distributor prices' for everyone. If we used distributors we would need to vastly increase our prices to our customers to match the 100% markup added by distributors. Call it 'distributor pricing for everyone' or ' half price' epoxy - whatever floats your boat!

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. 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.

 

We do have many 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 (see spear gun example above). 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.

11/24/08 AUTHOR'S NOTE: I'm doing epoxy/fiberglass cloth boat building here in NH using the Basic No Blush 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.

Customer confirms it: "I just used your low temp resin on a cedar strip canoe and it is excellent. Temp dropped to 31 deg. at night and the resin came out next morning glass hard and clear as air. --- Mark S."

What is a Puddle Duck Racer? ( visit their website - 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.

 


An ever increasing number of experienced DIY and professional Boat Builders consider Basic No Blush Marine Epoxy  to be the BEST product available (performance, consistency, properties, support and price). They've certainly tried all the other brands over the years. No other marine epoxy has our level of customer satisfaction - or rave reviews. Our customers can always buy cheaper 'repackaged' resins or the $$$ name brands at their local marine supply store. Instead they take the  effort to always order our Basic No Blush (tm) Marine Epoxy either online or over the phone.

 

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.)

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

 

(Mike had suffered from Epoxy Sensativity 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.”

to be the BEST product available. We certainly agree. Here's what they say:

marine epoxy mix ratio

Basic No Blush (tm) Marine Epoxy Resin and the Wind & Oar Boat School

The Wind & Oar Boat School is located in Portland, OR (http://wind-and-oar-boatschool.org/). Currently (7/11) they are working on a St Ayles skiff, with a group of 10 completely novice women doing the build. Its the first all women build and the first on the west coast. The St Ayles Skiff is a Iain Oughtred design done for the Scottish Fisheries Museum and now the cornerstone of the Scottish Coastal Rowing Project (http://scottishcoastalrowing.org/). Last fall WoodenBoat Publications picked up the concept and got 5 high schools in Maine to start the boat and I am mirroring the idea for high schools in Portland. The first youth boat will start this fall but in the mean time a group of women approached me about building one too. The Wind & Oar Boat School is building communities through building boats. We encourage groups of all shapes and sizes to experience the camaraderie, team building, collaboration, and self confidence that arise from working towards a common goal.

When it came time to decide about epoxies, the school turned to Michael Bogoger (Dory-man) for advice. He suggested your product and we've been extremely happy with it. The forgiving nature of the Basic No-Blush (tm) marine epoxy has been ideal for a school situation where many people are mixing and consistency is not necessarily high. Michael has covered our build on his blog several times and this link http://dory-man.blogspot.com/2011/06/wind-and-oar-boat-building-school.html) is to one of his posts where you can see us using the No Blush epoxy. product.

Whether you want a group team building exercise or a grade school introduction to wood and water, the Wind & Oar Boat School will tailor a course to fit your needs. Our first build is a group of 10 women, of diverse ages, who without any woodworking experience are now building a 22 foot St Ayles Skiff.

From: David <bbbbbbb@yahoo.com>
To: info@epoxyproducts.com

I bought a 3 gallon kit of basic no blush 2 last summer and have been very pleased with it. It's good stuff and I could afford
to make learning curve type mistakes at your price. The high cost of epoxy at the local West Marine store was just too
much and it kept me away from epoxy for too long.

I will be ordering more soon but I'm coming up short on the curing agent, I spilled some a while back. Would it be possible
to buy an additional quart when I make my next order?

Thanks, David

No problem, David. We can sell you an extra quart of curing agent.

"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

 (email 12/16/13 to Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. -- epoxyproducts.com -- attn: Paul Oman)

 

What more can we say to convince you that Basic No Blush marine epoxy has the best quality and value for individual and professionals working around boats of all kinds?

 Most of our customers started out with the 'easy to find' big name brand marine epoxies, but then switched over to Basic No Blush because of price as well as its forgiving nature and predictable and consistant performance under a wide range of conditions

WET DRY 700 (tm) - kevlar (tm) / feldspar/ceramic industrial grade epoxy paste. Cures underwater or on dry surfaces. If you only kept one epoxy putty repair product on your boat, workshop, or tool box, this would be it. This off-white epoxy (turns yellow over time) can be applied underwater. It has saved sinking boats, leaking swimming pools, repaired rotting window sills, and bonded wood to wood, wood to cement walls etc.  Wall mud or cake icing thick. Not be be confused with our thick light blue or white  Water Gard 300 epoxy paint which can also be applied underwater (generally pool repairs or marine barrier coats) or our thick, gray, kevlar (tm) reinforced epoxy underwater paint, Corro Coat fc2100A. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO on all three of these industrial epoxies.

Jeff (1/2013)   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 stop shifting around in the ground. DON'T STOP SELLING THIS STUFF.

Six Different Clear Epoxies -- Comparisons

 

(As a professional coatings company we offer a range of clear epoxies with unique properties and applications. This is a very different approach than marketing companies that only offer one product with one application per web site and are far removed from the manufacture and testing of their resold resin)

 

ESP 155 - solvent based, thin, sealing epoxy often used on wood, concrete and fiberglass. The Part B ranges from clear to dark red. Not for sale in California. Yellows quickly. Commonly used as a sealer and primer under marine spar varnished (i.e. India Spar Varnish - not for sale in California) surfaces, such as bar tops, outdoor furniture and  bright-work on boats/yachts. Epoxy and Spar Varnish is a win-win combination. The varnish provides UV protection and a high gloss easily maintained surface and the epoxy provides a stable base for the varnish. For a thicker epoxy base, use Low V epoxy or Basic No Blush epoxy (listed below) under the varnish. Packaged in 2 quart kits (1 to1 mix ratio).

LOW V - A solvent free, low viscosity epoxy often used as sealer or a easily rollable/brushable base on wood bars, cement floors etc. Also used to 're-bond' delaminated damp boat decks with their fiberglass 'skin'. Popular for wood rot repair too as it is thin (to soak in) odorless, and will bond to wet or damp surfaces. It is slightly amber and will yellow quicker than most epoxies. It was originally designed for concrete crack injection. Can be used under a varnish topcoat, giving a thicker epoxy base than the solvent based ESP 155. Can be allowed to flow over the edges on table and bar tops (but it is thin). Comes in 48 oz and 1.5 gal units. (2 to 2 mix ratio).

 

BIO CLEAR 810 - A solvent free clear epoxy, non brittle epoxy used exclusively for poured on table and bar tops. Very low levels of epoxy yellowing and contains bubble breakers. It requires being poured on at 1/4 inch layers which requires a edge or dam all the way around the surface to prevent it from simply draining onto the floor. If applied too thin it will fisheye due to the surface tension reducing bubble breaker additives. It is a favorite of professional poured on epoxy experts.  It has a very slight amber tint. Comes in 48 oz 1.5 gallon and 3 gallon kits (2 to 1 mix ratio).

 

BASIC NO BLUSH -  one of our most popular epoxies and one of the most clear epoxies available. It has normal or slightly slow epoxy yellowing. It is commonly used for boat building or boat repair  as well as resealing or creating pebble deck surfaces (common around pools and patios in Florida and other warm states. Also used to fill knot holes and cracks in wooden slabs used for bars and tables (sometimes tinted black when filling cracks and knot holes). Forms a hard, fairly brittle surface that handles outdoor weather very well (excluding normal UV yellowing and UV breakdown). Also used on bar and table top surfaces under varnish. Being semi thick it will not lay completely level in temperatures under about 75 degrees. It does contain bubble breakers (which is why the Part A appears slightly cloudy in its container. For table and bar tops use the standard temperature curing agent. For other applications use the low temperature (down to about freezing) winter curing agent. For hot weather (upper 80s and 90s) use the slower summer curing agent. The special summer and winter curing agents are only available for this one epoxy. Comes in 3 quart and 1.5 gallon kits (2 to 1 mix ratio).

 

EPOXY CLEAR TOP RESIN - Our thickest epoxy (just slightly thicker than the Basic No Blush). Not quite as brittle as the basic no blush. Low, slow yellowing although the product does have a very light greenish tint when applied over snowy white surfaces. Used for pour on bar tops and table tops and can be allowed to drip over the sides. Part A is sort of amber colored and very thick (needs about 75 degrees to work with) while the Part B is clear and watery. The differences in the viscosities of the Part A and Part B make it more difficult to mix but also makes it much more easy to tell when the two parts are well and evenly mixed. Comes in 1 gallon kits (3 to 1 mix ratio).

Unlike our competitors, we like to develop a partnership with our customers by turning them into educated buyers. That means discussing not just the benefits and plus of our epoxies but also pointing out the weaknesses and possible problems. The other guys just don't do this. they either downplay or ignore any bit of important information that might risk losing your business. We don't think that is right. It is certainly not the fair and honest way to do business. Visit our competitors' sites and search for any information on: 1) amine blush, 2) shipping restrictions, 3) nonyl phenol/enamel paint drying issues, 3) potlife issues, 4) price gouging/markups, 5) UV yellowing, 6) formulated epoxies vs raw resin vendors, 7) customer comments and feedback.

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.

"FISHEYE" WARNING

CAUSES, PREVENTION AND CURE OF "FISHEYE" IN YOU CLEAR EPOXY

Fisheyes (see picture) happen when working with clear epoxies. They don’t always happen, but they are not that rare although epoxy vendors tend to downplay the risk of fisheyes. Fisheye will form within about 10-20 minutes after the epoxy has been applied to surface.

CAUSES

Fisheyes are all about surface tension and often surface contamination of oils, waxes, silicones etc. Fisheyes  are much less common in pigmented epoxies and epoxies with fillers and binders which ‘hold the epoxy together’ and preventing fisheyes. Of course, adding fillers, pigments or binders results in an epoxy that is no longer clear.

Fisheyes can result when clear epoxies are applied too thin (often to slightly contaminated surfaces, but not necessarily) with surface stresses exceed the ability of the epoxy to ‘hold together." They are much more common on smooth glassy surfaces and rare on rough surfaces.

 

FISHEYES WILL NOT FORM WHEN USING FIBERGLASS CLOTH WITH YOUR CLEAR (MARINE TYPE) EPOXY.

 

FISHEYES ARE RATHER COMMON WHEN EPOXY IS APPLIED OVER NEWLY STAINED SURFACES. ALWAYS ALLOW 'STAINS' TO DRY FOR 1 -2 WEEKS BEFORE TOP COATING WITH ANY SORT OF COATING.

 

PREVENTION

Thicker layers of clear epoxy are the answer to preventing most fisheyes. The Bio Clear 810 epoxy is so thin that it is recommended not to be applied in thicknesses of less then 1/4 inch thick (which requires and edge or dam around all edges). It is commonly used in professional bar top and table top applications.

When working with other ‘pour on’ epoxies, fisheyes tend to happen (if they are going to happen) when the epoxy is spread out or brushed out instead of just poured on and allowed to flow out on its own - resulting in a thicker layer).

FIX

Keep an eye on your "pour on" or brushed on clear epoxy for the first 30 minutes or so after application. If you see fisheyes forming you can generally ‘fx’ them by pouring more epoxy over the forming fisheye.

If your epoxy is already 'hard' when you notice the fisheyes, here are your options. If the fisheyes are caused by surface contamination then sanding down and/or adding more epoxy may not help - the still present contamination will once again cause more fisheyes in the new second coat of epoxy. A possible fix is to 'seal' the contaminated epoxy with a clear poly sealer and paint which MIGHT separate the contaminates from the the new epoxy to be applied over the poly sealer.

If the fisheyes are caused by minor surface contamination or just too thin of a layer of epoxy you can: 1) pour on more epoxy over the fisheyes and entire surface (but you will still see a slight dimple or depression over the old fisheye sites), 2) sand away the fisheyes and the entire surface and re-apply more epoxy.

 

BEST ADVICE

A majority of fisheyes are caused by applying clear epoxies too thin on smooth surfaces. In one sense it is best to apply the epoxy as thick as possible, however, if it does fisheye the you will have a real mess to sand away or re-do. Best advice might be to apply a thin coat of epoxy in a small test spot. If it does fisheye, you can probably remove the still liquid epoxy with a solvent soaked rag. If the epoxy is already hard, the thin coat of epoxy in a small test area will not be that big of a deal to sand off. If it doesn't fisheye you can proceed with more epoxy at that thickness or thicker without worry.

If you are into your Big Project and see fisheyes forming, adding more epoxy over them is your best fix. So... keep an eye on your clear epoxy application for about 20 - 30 minutes after you apply the epoxy and be on the lookout for developing  fisheyes.
