Everyone Pays Distributor Prices for our Basic No Blush (tm) Epoxy

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!

How to compare marine epoxies

Wholesale Epoxy Resin Prices

The epoxies we sell are of the highest quality and generally are much better than those sold by our competitors. Our prices are less than you might expect to pay for these quality products because our pricing structure favors you, the end user, rather than a group of middlemen distributors.

Our customers are often disappointed to learn that there is no extensive network of distributors and suppliers for these epoxies. Ordering direct takes additional time and shipping charges, but the reality is that even with the delays and shipping costs, you save a great deal of money in return for that inconvenience. The more distributors and outlets a vendor has, the more likely that the product is priced to attract more distributors, rather than give end users the best product at the best price.

WHAT SEPARATES US FROM THE MOST

OF THE OTHER LOW COST EPOXY VENDORS

One of our competitors proudly explained that his prices are low because:

He buys "epoxy resins and hardeners from manufacturers such as Shell Oil, Dow Chemical, and Vantico (formerly Ciba- Geigy). I buy in drums and repackage into smaller containers."

Not good! Yes, folks like AAA, BBB and our formulators do purchase their raw resins from the above companies - there are only a few chemical companies worldwide that make the resins. But we all then reformulate, blend, create, our marine epoxies to create properties and characteristics that we want our epoxies to have. We don't simply repackage or resell the bulk raw resins in smaller cans. It is sort of like gasoline. Gasoline starts off as a refinery product from crude oil, but all the Oil Companies then add things to it before they sell it to you to put into your car. They could sell it cheaper (and have a much bigger market share) if they sold the raw gasoline, but they feel (as do epoxy formulators) that the things they add to the gasoline/epoxy are important and provide added value to the product.


What continues to shock me is the price of shipping (and the cost of boxes, etc. to pack the epoxies). UPS and the motor freight folks certainly get their money (plus all sorts of hidden surcharges they sneak on to the monthly bill). There is nothing we or anyone can do about shipping charges - but boy do they add to the cost! I have to admit, I've stopped many personal purchases due to shipping charge shock! Of course, I try not to think about the cost of gasoline (always going up), car fees, and my time when I drive to the store... Luck for my, New Hampshire has no sales tax! (but HUGE property taxes to make up for it!).
