Progressive Epoxy Polymers Inc., Floor Coatings  EpoxyPolyurethane, Pittsfield, NH


Basic No Blush marine epoxy has a long list of private and professional boat builders. Most recently (2016 -2017) The Drummond Island Tall Ship Company built the 72 foot schooner Huron Jewel using Basic No Blush epoxy. (CLICK HERE) Over 160 gallons of epoxy were used - switching from the standard curing agent to the winter and summer curing agents as the seasons changed. Other professional builders include a Drift Boat company, a boat building school, and it was used to construct one of the boats in a 'row across the Atlantic' competition several years ago. Read about the professional restoration of a Thistle Class sailboat with our epoxies. Some of our other epoxies can be applied underwater have been used to rebuild a 100 year old wooden marine railway in 12 feet of water and repair and raise a sunken yacht at a Pacific Island Atoll.  Read all about it in the book "Escape From Hermit Island" available at Amazon.com.

Finding the Best Marine Epoxy Resin System for Your Boat Repair

(with or without fiberglass cloth) or Boat Building Project


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 (laminating resins)

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. 

More about amine blush - CLICK HERE (amine epoxy blush).


One of our marine epoxy competitors (now a mere impersonal, product line sub-division within a big industrial corporation) claims a 30% savings in time using non blushing marine epoxies. Non blushing marine epoxies do not require washing or sanding between epoxy coats or top coating with other paints. Note that we offer Basic No Blush marine epoxy with fast, slow and regular curing agents (and it also includes bubble breakers for a more perfect finish). Our Premium No Bush epoxy is Nonyl free and uses an special curing agent is can be air shipped (shipped without restrictions).

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.


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





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. More about Nonyl Phenol - CLICK HERE (nonyl phenol).

Part 3 (epoxy additives II)

FORMALDEHYDE - one of the major epoxy vendors uses
formaldehyde in their curing agents! Check the MSDS of your vendor's epoxy for this chemical. (formaldehyde in competitor's curing agent - click here).

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?





- 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

6) bubble breakers in the part A resin



Exterior Natural Wood Finish with No Blush Epoxy  (tm) and Marine Spar Varnish

This application is boat windows, but could also be done on exterior door, table, bar top

  "(5/2019) Paul;

Attached is a picture of two of the 14 frames I have made for the windows and door of my tugboat (Candu-EZ 14'3" model) named Electra. I wanted to share with you my excitement regarding the use of Progressive Polymers No Blush Epoxy as a sanding sealer/stain. Here is my process in the event that you would want to share it with others.

Substrate is african mahogany.

Final sand with 220 grit sandpaper to smooth finish, wipe with alcohol dampened cloth or paper towel and remove dust with tack rag.

Mix No Blush Epoxy according to weight ratio of 1 part resin to 0.42 part standard hardner (I don't recommend the fast hardener for reasons that will appear later).

Add alcohol based stain (Behlen Solar LuxTM NGR Medium-Brown Mahogany Stain) 25% W/W and mix well.

Apply with inexpensive chip brush and brush out well. Caution: be sure that the finish is brushed out well to avoid runs and "edge lips", which are hard to remove without removing more wood due to the epoxy base.

Sand lightly with 220 grit and reapply as necessary, (i.e., missed spots or areas in which the sandpaper may have removed too much color).

The next step will be the application of Varnish to the tune of about 7 coats
(vendor note: most folks would apply 1 - 3 coats of varnish - besides the Basic No Blush (with bubble breakers) epoxy, we also sell India Spar Varnish) -- (but less than what would be needed if not epoxy sealer were used)."

Additional Customer Notes and Comments

"Thinning the "No Blush" with alcohol based stain works well in this case. Initially, I used both 91% Isopropyl alcohol along with the stain as a thinner, but I found the Isopropyl alcohol to be unnecessary for the depth of color that I desired.

I used some wood filler to deal with some imperfections in my wood routing techniques. While the stain/epoxy mixture did color them, it did not do so at the same intensity as the wood itself. In retrospect, i believe the better solution would be to leave the imperfections alone (smooth them of course) and fill them with stain filler stix that Behlen also has in corresponding colors.

Using an alcohol based stain as a thinner for the epoxy appears to have some impact on the thinning duration (i.e. the mixture thickens over time). This appears to be a function of the relatively rapid evaporation of the alcohol which has the effect of an increase in viscosity over a a period of 15 minutes or so. As a result, the color impact of the mixture becomes somewhat more intense. Therefore, I recommend keeping the batch size small, probably no more than 3 oz (liquid measure) total volume at a time. In this way, the color consistency was very good and given the spreadability of the mixture, coverage was adequate to prevent slowing down the staining/sealing process of a number of the frames pictured at one time.

Again, thank you for your support and your knowledge AND for a great product." - BOB  5/19

Other Options:  Instead of the honey thick, solvent free, Basic No Blush epoxy, the same results could be had using our solvent free, thinner Low V epoxy or even our solvent based, water thin, ESP 155 epoxy sealer (not for sale in California). Read about these product options in our Favorites Page. - These options are all available because we are a technical coatings/epoxy company and not a single product / single industry marketing company.


The difference between repackager epoxy and formulators' epoxy is like the difference between a glass of "Rot Gut"  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 pebble stone re-sealing markets).

June 2018 update:

We have been warning marine epoxy users about 'repackagers' vs epoxy formulators for over a dozen years. The 'repackagers' have taken note and at least one now claims to be a formulator. Not Good.

The only formulators of Marine Epoxy (the industry leaders) that I know of are:

West Systems, MAAS, System Three, and us: - PROGRESSIVE EPOXY POLYMERS.

We (Progressive Epoxies) are the smallest company and least expensive of the formulated marine epoxy vendors. Marine epoxy vendors with prices less than ours are 'Repackagers" of raw resins (who also sometimes falsely claim they have a non-yellowing epoxy). No shame.

The vendors' MSDS / SDS sheet must show a 'formulating factory' name/address which you which you can Google an see if it is a 'real factory." Note that formulating companies have higher expenses. They require workers, warehouse space, and lots of overhead - either the seller has these facilities or they hire out (toll manufacturing -  like we do) to these companies to formulate / modify their raw epoxy chemicals. Marine epoxy pricing is probably your best clue of Formulated vs Repackaged resin systems.

Buyer Beware - Vendor Evaluation

1) All epoxies yellow in UV and over time. It is the chemistry of epoxies. If someone tells you they have a non yellowing epoxy, they are not being honest. If they had such an epoxy, everyone else would too.

2) epoxies are industrial chemicals. Demand/request BATCH NUMBER for your epoxies. If not provided that supplier is hiding something or is very un-professional.

3) The coatings / chemical industry has professional - scientific societies for its technical professionals. Ask for the professional affiliations of the person giving you technical advise (are they ex-Walmart employees reading out of a technical binder?). Are the junior staff on phone duty or senior professional staff?

4) Ask where the epoxies are manufactured (the technical professionals within the company will certainly know). Confirm by viewing the MSDS/SDS document which MUST be available to you online by via fax. Mote that this is not the same as the PRODUCT DATA SHEET.

5) Email / call for support or sales help outside of normal business hours, including weekends and holiday. The companies that put  you first will answer the phone immediately  or return your call / email within hours, but before and AFTER the sale. (our east coast # 603 - 435 - 7199).

6) For more ways to evaluate your epoxy vendor vist our web page epoxyproducts.com/eval4u.html

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.

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.


Or better yet, call them on a Sunday morning, Friday night, or at 10 PM. Try us: 603-435-7199

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.

"Paul, you have outstanding products. Every product has out performed the highly advertised units I purchased elsewhere for past projects. Thank you."  (Dick - email 11/10/13)


An ever increasing number of experienced DIY and profressional 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.

Things go better with Fiberglass Cloth

We sell 9 oz fiberglass cloth in 50 yard rolls. Three inch or four inch wide fiberglass "tape". The "tape" is easier for beginners to work with than big sheets of fiberglass - (saturate with epoxy and apply like strips of duct tape). Use for boat-building and/or repair, epoxy pipe wrap projects, and basement leak repair (sort of a dry-wall tape system but using fiberglass cloth and epoxy. Note that when using epoxy and fiberglass cloth, the strength comes from the fiberglass cloth and not the epoxy. - Order the 3 inch or 4 inch fiberglass rolls at either of our on-line stores or call to order your epoxy and cloth - 603 - 435 -7199.






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 marine

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.)

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...

High Gloss - Very Smooth - Deluxe Finish with our

Premium No Blush (tm) Epoxy

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!

Easy 2:1Mixing Ratio

Contains no carcinogens

Medium Viscosity

Three Different Curing Agents






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.
