Fiberglass Covering Kits
Epoxy-Plus Fiberglass Covering Kits with our Epoxy-Plus System resin and
hardener, are available for many marine plywood boat designs offered on this
website. Only the finest materials are included in the covering kits.
Every fiberglass covering kit comes with the proper amount of Epoxy-Plus
Marine Epoxy and treated fiberglass cloth to completely cover the bottom,
sides and transom. This tough, durable covering will greatly strengthen the
hull and protect it from the elements almost indefinitely. It reduces
maintenance to a minimum, no annual repainting, and provides the sleek look
of a fiberglass boat at substantially less cost.
Epoxy-Plus is far superior to polyester resin for applying a fiberglass
covering to wooden boats. Why? Because Epoxy-Plus is a powerful and flexible
adhesive type coating, polyester resin is not. Fiberglass cloth applied with
Epoxy-Plus will last longer and adhere far better, with greater impact
resistance, for a long-term, low maintenance surface.
When you use our Epoxy-Plus System, you will be working with a premium epoxy
system obtained by drawing on our years of experience in the boatbuilding
field and the technical experience of one of the top compounders in epoxy
The Epoxy-Plus System is part of our complete system of premium marine epoxy
resins, glues and surfacing compounds. Unlike the older epoxy systems using
a 5 to 1 or 2 to 1 mix, our Epoxy-Plus System incorporates the latest 1 to 1
equal mix system, virtually eliminating errors and the waste found in the
older systems. No amine blush, no sanding between coats, low viscosity for
easy fiberglass wetout. Cures to a flexible, resilient surface.
This equal mix Epoxy-Plus System forms a covering that is both flexible and
with unusually high bonding and impact strength. Being practically
indestructible makes this the peace of mind protective covering you will
want for your boat.
The fiberglass cloth supplied in our covering kits is a superior strength
fabric woven from pure glass fiber and treated with special finish
processes. These finish processes are very important in that they allow the
Epoxy-Plus to wet out the cloth properly. When you use our fiberglass cloth
for covering, it provides outstanding tensile, structural and impact
