In our magazine ads we quote our founder and CEO, Kern Hendricks when he said, "Boatbuilding Launched our Company". We go on to say that this was indeed the case because in 1979 when he was building a boat Kern didn’t feel that the available boatbuilding products measured up. He was inspired to create a better marine epoxy resin. Since then, we’ve spent over 20 years creating products and literature specifically for wood/epoxy boat construction. Using the latest composites technology System Three Resins has developed the next generation of epoxy products – The SilverTip Marine Epoxy Series.
Until now the approach to using marine epoxy was to combine one general-purpose resin with a variety of hardeners and obnoxious fillers to produce the various adhesives, coatings, putties and compounds needed in boat construction and repair. This "chemistry set" approach could give good results but was all too often messy, inconsistent and unpredictable. With the SilverTip Marine Epoxy Series, System Three has eliminated the use of a general-purpose resin, and instead designed a separate resin system for each specific application found in boatbuilding and repair. This makes sense since the performance requirements of an adhesive are not the same as those for a coating or compound. All of the fillers have been properly selected and correctly combined with the resin, eliminating guesswork and trial and error mixing.
The results are products that are consistent and exceptionally easy to use. Plus the performance of each product in the SilverTip Series is optimized for its specific application. There are 5 products in the SilverTip Marine Epoxy Series: SilverTip Laminating Resin, EZ-Fillet, GelMagic, QuikFair and MetlWeld. The SilverTip Marine Epoxy Series Products make wooden boat building quicker, easier, and more enjoyable than ever before.
In addition to wooden boat construction, the SilverTip series products are being widely used in composite boat construction. We have provided products to hydroplane racing teams and manufacturers of large ferry and fishing boats.
