Advantages of Marine Epoxy

Boats are often made of polyurethane resin, which is durable, only after preliminary treatment with bonding agents. It evaporates faster than epoxy resin. Marine epoxy resin is a simple and modern solution for building or repairing boat hulls. It is ideally suited for laminating and is extremely durable & resistant. Marine epoxy is characterized by low material shrinkage, effective osmotic protection, and excellent adhesion. Therefore, it is not surprising that epoxy resin is used in Aviation, wind power plants, and the automotive industry as well.

Boat Building with Epoxy Resin

EPODEX offer our resin kits for a wide range of applications. When boat building, we highly recommend our EPODEX ECO.

EPODEX ECO is a low-viscosity epoxy resin with layers of glass fibre, carbon fibre, aramid, and mixed-fibre fabrics. This creates a fibre composite with which you can laminate boats. It is suitable for a wide range of applications such as civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering. It is a classic coating, laminating, and repairing epoxy resin. Our ECO system is miscible with all colour pigments.

Repair Your GRP Boat with Epoxy Resin

Does your boat made of GRP have holes, osmosis, or other damages?

You can use epoxy putty to fill small holes & damaged areas, but our resin can also repair larger damages. With epoxy glue, you can create extreme bonds, which can be drilled, painted, or sanded after curing.

Marine epoxy is essential to boat building as no other material is better suited and more optimally adapted to the requirements of GRP boats. Since GRP is a glass fibre reinforced plastic (a material made of plastic and glass fibres), repairing your boat works best with marine epoxy. Use EPODEX ECO to produce glass fibres and repair your GRP boat. If a different material was originally used for your boat don’t stress it!

Epoxy resin generates long-lasting bonds.

How-To Use Marine Epoxy

In rough seas, your boat is exposed to various stresses like saltwater, temperature fluctuations, mechanical stress, and high humidity levels. Marine epoxy offers the highest possible protection against those stresses. During processing & curing there are several things to consider: the ambient temperature should constantly be around 20°C when applying epoxy resin. While lower temperatures slow down the chemical reaction of resin and hardeners, higher temperatures accelerate the process. As a rule of thumb, an increase of 10°C doubles the chemical reaction rate.

It is important that humidity does not exceed 70%, otherwise, the overall finish & look of the surface will be negatively affected. If you´ve already laminated or coated your boat or parts of it, you can use our resin kits (ECO, PRO or PRO+) for subsequent heat treatment. This process, which is called tempering or post-curing, and significantly improves durability & heat resistance.
