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. Most (maybe all) of out competitors don't track or provide this information. They don't know it, or they don't want to let you know how old their product is. Only buy your epoxy chemicals from vendors that label their epoxies with actual batch numbers or Date of Manufacture. Call before ordering and ask if that information will be on all  containers shipped out.

Emergency Underwater Boat Repair Epoxy - Without it your boat is at risk!

The difference between your boat sinking at sea or in its slip and not sinking can be as simple as having an underwater epoxy paste and some fiberglass cloth on hand. Hull damage, leaks or a sinking can happen anywhere, any time, risking your life, the lives of your crew and the loss of the boat. Even if you are not sinking, an underwater epoxy paste doesn't have to be used underwater. Epoxy seal electrical connections, re-attach or re-bond wood trim, loose fittings, chipped wood or fiberglass. Repair broken hardware.

"I feel that any person taking a boat to sea anywhere, anytime, should carry your product aboard..."  -  Joy S. and Leslie B., sunken US Yacht Banshee.

Order the 1 gal unit of Wet Dry 700 underwater epoxy paste and a 4 inch roll of fiberglass cloth (yes, you can do fiberglass/epoxy work underwater) to keep on board - BEFORE YOU NEED IT!  order at

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!

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?





- Note that we (Progressive Epoxy Polymers) are the only family owned company on that list. 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.  The majority of them  actually charge more, or a lot more, than we do for our formulated Basic No Blush marine. epoxy.

aluminum boat repair


Hi Paul,

I was working on the boat today and couldn't help but notice how sharp my aluminum hardtop (still) looks after a very harsh summer of hard work on the salty ocean and a long New England winter exposed to the elements.

I remember the day I finished welding my hardtop and sat baffled as to how to finish it. You see, the hardtop frame was comprised of a half cut-up Mako tower (anodized aluminum) and scrap 6061 aluminum, all TIG welded together. With little to no prep, aside from a light sanding and a wash with alcohol, I was able to brush on (stippling) two coats of Aluthane in a day and have the boat launched a week later. Since then, the frame has seen rope chaffing, scrapes, climbing crew with abrasive sandy shoes, and harsh sun and seawater. The finish has never worn through and shows no signs of damage.

It has held up marvelously. So well in fact, I go out of my way to find things to paint with Aluthane. So far, I've painted my engines heat exchanger, primer my manifolds and risers, painted parts of my galvanized trailer including the wheels, and various mixed metal hardware on my boat.

I've recommended this product to others looking for a tough coating that can take a beating. A little goes a long way with Aluthane and it is almost funny how easily it goes on, rolled or brushed. One caveat, brushing will show brush marks so I usually stipple the surface with a brush with its bristles cut way back (or roll it on). Continuous mixing is key, too. It isn't glossy which is nice in some cases.

"I bought some ESP 155 as a prime coat and used your India Marine Spar Varnish on top - unbelievably good! Forty year old mahogany seats in my dingy look as good as the brand new gunwales. Not sure how well it projects on the camera - dark basement- but looks so, so good!" John 1/15
