Marine Epoxy Series from System Three Resins is made up of five, application
specific products, designed to make wooden boat building easier and more enjoyable
as well as perform better than any other epoxy available today.
Gone is the mess and inconsistency of repeated measuring and mixing of powdered
No more blushing and worries about secondary bonding.
Our SilverTip kits consist of four products; Laminating Resin, GelMagic
adhesive, EZ fillet, and QuickFair.
Below are descriptions of each from System Three:
is a med-low viscosity, liquid epoxy system that has been optimized for
coating and reinforcing fabric saturation in wood-composite boatbuilding.
It will outperform any other product in these applications. SilverTip
Laminating Resin is designed for use with fiberglass, Kevlar, Dynel
and graphite as well as on bare wood. It has superior wet-out characteristics
with little tendency to foam or trap air. Both the resin and hardener are
nearly colorless and are used in an easy 2:1 volumetric ratio. SilverTip
Laminating Resin cures to a brilliant blush-free film with either the
fast or slow hardener eliminating secondary bonding concerns as experienced
with other epoxies. The working time is longer than most boat building epoxies
without sacrificing cure time. The cured film is tough and resilient with
better heat resistance than other room temperature cured epoxies.
is a toughened, non-sagging, two component, structural epoxy adhesive designed
for superior bonding to wood and most porous materials. It is unique in
that it starts as two self-leveling liquids, which immediately form a soft,
thixotropic, non-sagging paste when mixed. Measuring is easily accomplished
by either volume or weight. GelMagic requires no additional modification
with fillers and can be applied to vertical and overhead surfaces without
running, eliminating the mess and waste associated with other epoxies. Gel-Magic
exhibits exceptionally high peel strength and employs a state of the art,
two-phase epoxy morphology, which creates an adhesive bond that is more
tough, resilient, resistant to embrittlement and possess better elevated
temperature properties than other room temperature cured epoxy adhesives.
GelMagic can be post-cured up to 140 degrees for even greater performance.
is a wood flour-filled two-part putty specifically designed for stitch-and-glue
wooden boat construction. Its ketchup-like, self-leveling consistency allows
it to be measured by volume or weight. The resin (part A) is brick red in
color while the hardener (part B) is a deep, dark green. A rich brown wood
tone results when the two parts are combined indicating complete mixing.
The putty thickens after mixing to form an easy to spread, thixotropic compound,
which stays put and will not run or sag. EZ Fillet has been designed
for superior strength and workability and can be used by itself to create
smooth cosmetic fillets or as a structural fillet when combined with fiberglass
a lightweight, microballoon-filled, fast-curing two-part epoxy fairing putty
with excellent moisture resistance. The two color-coded parts have a non-sagging,
butter-like consistency and are easily mixed to form a third color. At 70°F.
QuikFair is sufficiently cure to be hand-sanded in 3 hours or machine
sanded in 4 hours. This allows the user to apply three coats each 24 hours
in a standard eight-hour shift or six in a round the clock basis.
