small amount and 2nd not in this time frame!!! Its sometimes hard to get a small
amounts for 'testing'....200 or 500 pounds well no problem.
In the last 40 years I have not done business with a company like yours......there
is only one word ....... JOB WELL DONE. You really know the needs of your
It was a pleasure doing business with your company, I already put your name to
my "Favorites" on my computer.
Thanks again, have a great day.
Seal and Prime wood - SURPRISE - there's something better than Epoxy!
Aluthane - Aluminum Filled Urethane Primer and/or Topcoat (it's not an epoxy, but we're so impressed with this product we added it to our catalog - see it in our products page). A 'moisture cured urethane' - uses moisture to cure thus product gets molecularly 'larger' after application. Result: Works better than epoxy to seal wood - test results CLICK HERE

Lean about our USER FRIENDLY PRICES - you save big time! We could have called this section "How you're getting over-charged by the competition!" or "Things Epoxy Manufacturers would rather you didn't know"
Included is a section (warning) about other low cost epoxy vendors - that simply repackage the raw resins from the giant chemical companies, rather than use these raw resins as starting products to formulate unique marine epoxy resin systems the way we and other other large marine epoxy vendors do!
MORE ON OUR PRICES --- I recently attended the 2003 WoodBoat show in Rockland, Maine. Just like at all the other boat show I visit (mostly in the New England area), most of my name brand competitors were exhibiting there. I am always shocked at the prices they charge and get away with. But then it dawned on me -- I would love to exhibit at one of these shows, but the exhibitor fees, travel, hotel, brochures, time and labor costs add up to several thousands of dollars per show. That cost has to be recovered from, not just the sale of more epoxy, but from the profit margin of each additional sale of epoxy. That's hundreds or thousands of gallons of additional epoxy that would need to be sold per show... The only way we could do it would be to add an extra $10 - $20 per gallon to the price of our epoxy. If we did that, our epoxies would cost you the same as our competitors' epoxies. Sure, we would both probably like chatting with each other at the next boat show, but that 'chat' would cost you dearly ($10 - $20 per gallon). We think our epoxies are better than our competitors' products, and because we don't do things like exhibit at trade shows, you get real savings. We hope you see the logic in this.....

You've just made a new fan, Paul. My husband, Jerry, is hard to
impress. We read your "Everyone's Guide to Instant Epoxy Expertise"
while driving home from the boat the other day. He was impressed with
the depth of information (you went where some fear to tread) and the
evenhandedness with which you delivered it. We just got something
else in the mail from you, and he stole it away out of the mail pile
to read at his leisure.
The September issue went out the door yesterday. You're in there.

We've found that most problems are the result of recoating too soon. Recoat epoxies after 24 hours, for putting different kinds of coatings over each other, wait at least 48 hours.
Our thanks to Interlux's painting guide for the some of the following:
Area below the waterline (general formula: LOA X beam X .85 = wetted surface area)
Sailboats: 18 ft day sailer 120 squ feet; 21 ft trailerable 160 squ feet; 28 ft racer/cruiser 250 squ feet; 31 ft racer/cruiser 270 squ feet; 36 ft cruiser 330 squ feet; 41 ft cruiser 435; 53 ft cruiser 590 squ feet.
Motorboats: 18 ft runabout 120 squ feet; 21 ft runabout 150 squ feet; 28 ft cruiser 240 squ feet;
32 ft sportfish 300 squ feet; 36 ft cruiser 350 squ feet; 42 ft cruiser 500 squ feet; 53 ft cruiser 650 squ feet.
One Gallon of Epoxy will wet out: 60 squ feet of .75 oz mat; 30 squ ft of 1.5 oz mat; 85 squ feet of 6 oz cloth; 54 squ feet of 10 oz cloth; 35 squ feet of 18 oz woven roving; 28 squ feet of 24 oz woven mat
How much epoxy? To wet out 6-9 oz cloth, fill the weave with three coats etc., allow for waste, etc. figure square footage of cloth to coat times 0.0126 equals gallons of epoxy needed.
For a stitch and glue project you will need: (1) epoxy resin (see section one in our marine catalog) (2) fiberglass tape/cloth (we sell 3 inch wide) (3 - two options A- add fumed silica (often called by the brand name - Cabosil (tm)) to form a gel for the fillets, or B- use our fast set epoxy gel (or other thickened/putty epoxy) to make fillets straight out of the 2 part cans. We sell all of these products. Click here to go directly to our products page.
Epoxy "Stab Brush" -- "Regular Brush"
Use with products on this page
buy separately or include with your order
STAB BRUSH - 3 inch wide with 3/4 inch bristles. Most epoxies are too thick for a regular brush. Stab brushes allow you to push and move the epoxy around and 'stab' or poke it into cracks, voids, and corners
|REGULAR BRUSH - 2 inch wide and extra thick with synthetic bristles. Use with varnish, paints and thin epoxies. Priced for disposable use.|
