Thixo Low Viscosity is the most versatile epoxy adhesive available
Thixo LV might have the widest range of applications of any epoxy adhesive. It’s thin, low viscosity formula makes it easy to dispense, and you’ll find uses for it far beyond the boat. LV is great for masonry – use it on brick, concrete, and cement. Fill cracks, holes, and seams. It comes in a 185 ml cartridge that fits most standard caulking guns. Simply attach a mixing tip, trim tip to desired bead size, and squeeze the handle for no-mess bonds or repairs almost anywhere.
- Use a solvent like acetone or Bio-Solve to clean and prep materials before bonding
- Use lacquer thinner or denatured alcohol to smooth out work
- While Thixo LV can be used in cooler weather, it mixes better warm. To warm, place near heat source and warm slowly and consistently
- Insert the cartridge into the caulking gun when ready to use
- NOTE: Thixo cartridges have a slightly offset nozzle that fits most, but not all, caulk guns. Caulking applicators used with Thixo need to have a hole large enough for the mixing tip; cartridges won’t fit applicators with only a small hole for the nozzle.
- Open the epoxy by removing collar and nozzle plug
- Apply in desired thickness to both prepared surfaces and bond firmly. Make sure Thixo LV stays on the contact surfaces and is not squeezed out/off
- Application temperature: At or above 55°F for best results
- Gel time: 10 minutes @ 77°F
- Cure time: 2 days @ 77°F
- Surface prep solvent: Acetone or denatured alcohol or TotalBoat Eco Solvent
- Cleanup solvent: Acetone or denatured alcohol; cured material must be removed mechanically
