SilverTip Epoxy is a medium-low viscosity, liquid epoxy resin 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 Epoxy 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 Epoxy 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 extending cure time. The cured film is tough and resilient with better heat resistance than other epoxies cured at room temperature.
SilverTip Epoxy is a crystal clear, blush-free epoxy system. SilverTip Epoxy is an excellent choice for brightwork applications due to its brilliant clarity and rapid film build characteristics.
Due to its low viscosity, SilverTip wets out a variety of reinforcement materials with ease. These materials include fiberglass, Kevlar®, Dynel®, and carbon fiber. SilverTip has a high modulus and therefore develops rigidity without brittleness. The cured film is tough and resilient, with good heat resistance. It features an easy 2:1 by volume mix ratio.

• Easy 2:1 mix ratio
What is the SilverTip Series?
General Purpose Epoxy was our first product when System Three launched in 1979 and remains one of our bestselling, most loved products. At the time, it redefined the category by offering consumers an epoxy system that could be used in a wide variety of environments.
We revisited that playbook with the introduction of our SilverTip Series. In an effort to make epoxies even more accessible, we have "eliminated the guesswork" by formulating application-specific epoxy products to address every common marine project. With the most user-friendly epoxy products on the market, the SilverTip Series, we're making boatbuilding easier and more fun.
