BASIC NO BLUSH EPOXY:
This epoxy is a clear epoxy with a 2:1 mix ratio by volume. It is one of our top selling epoxies (and NON BLUSHING unlike most of our competitors' products). Basic No Blush has three different curing agents. The hot weather curing agent (CLICK HERE) is for use in hot weather, summers in the south, for example. The cold weather winter curing agent (CLICK HERE) will cure the epoxy in temperatures below freezing. Use the 'regular' curing agent for normal temperatures. The different curing agents can be blended together to adjust the pot life of the epoxy for any set of conditions.
Need a FAST SETTING epoxy? (CLICK HERE). Our hot weather version of Basic No Blush epoxy becomes a SLOW SETTING (CLICK HERE) epoxy at normal temperatures.
(Click on the LINKS page link below to learn more about amine blush and the different Basic No Blush curing agents).
Note that we also offer a PREMIUM NO BLUSH EPOXY. This epoxy uses an amber colored curing agent (only one curing agent is offered) and is probably one of the most pure and 'clean' epoxy available - often used by boat builders that want the very best resin they can find. Unlike the Basic No Blush epoxy (and 99% of all epoxies) this product can be shipped by air. Past customers include a boat builder in Japan and a custom, high end, spear gun maker in Egypt that wanted a perfect wood finish for his $$$ spear guns.

Why Basic No Blush (tm) epoxy is the BEST in its class:
1. A formulated blended resin system (not repackaged raw chemicals)
2) Uses non blushing curing agent for blush free results
3) not too thick, not too thin, not too brittle - ever see an epoxy surface with millions of tiny cracks? It is brittle, repackaged (see #1) not formulated epoxy
4) the only marine type epoxy with bubble breakers for superior flaw free finishes and uniform properties and appearance and allows for thicker, multiple layers with better clarity
5) the only epoxy adduct type epoxy for superior enhanced properties (standard cure only)
6) strong user support / feedback
7) 24/7 support email
8) less expensive than the other formulated epoxies which still don't have many of the advantages listed here
COMMON USES FOR BASIC NO BLUSH EPOXY
1) Basic No Blush epoxy was designed for marine epoxy applications, specifically boat building and boat repair (CLICK HERE). Less brittle than the competitors. This is a 'formulated' marine epoxy - not a simple repackaging of the raw resins and curing agents offered by low end vendors. It is a favorite with STITCH AND GLUE (CLICK HERE) small boat builders.
2) Basic No Blush epoxy is often used to create and / or re-seal pebble decks around pools and patios (CLICK HERE). Usually these stone decks need to be resealed with a fresh top coat of epoxy every 2 - 5 years (just before the stones start breaking off).
3) Basic No Blush epoxy (usually with the slow summer curing agent) is the product of choice for the popular penny floors (CLICK HERE). To visit our primary penny floor page.
4) Basic No Blush epoxy is a leading product for epoxy covered tables and bar tops (CLICK HERE). It is the only epoxy in its class with bubble breakers in the formulation to greatly reduce or eliminate bubbles when doing an epoxy pour. Usually the slow summer curing agent is used to give the pour more time to self level, for any bubbles can rise from the surface that is being coated to come to the surface and pop. The other pour on epoxy vendors on the internet appear to all sell the same super low end imported epoxy resins with their literature, web sites, and support all making wacko, crazy claims. They are sales companies, and not epoxy professionals.
5) Basic No Blush epoxy is a popular LAMINATING (CLICK HERE). Laminating is when layers of epoxy and fiberglass cloth are stacked one on top of each other. It is common in boat building, but also in craft and repair projects.
Basic No Blush epoxy is widely referenced across the Internet. These references include application pages (marine, table top, penny floors, etc.), information sites, and educational sites explaining how Basic No Blush 'fits into' the realm of epoxy resin systems.

LIQUA TILE 1172 (POTABLE WATER EPOXY):
Liqua Tile 1172 is a leader in the new generation of drinking water approved epoxies. All potable water coatings are tested to specific tank or pipeline sizes. Up to the introduction of Liqua Tile 1172 approvals required tanks of 800 to 1000 gallons. This product is the only one that is approved for tanks as small as 50 gallons. (WHY: - big tanks dilute the amount of 'bad chemicals" from the coat, I suspect big coating companies don't want to mess with small tanks/small purchases, approvals require annual $$$$ re-certification).
If your potable water vendor doesn't explain the link between certification and the min tank size for their product up front, they are screwing you into buying a product that doesn't cover your application.
LiquaTile 1172 has also passed Lead Testing certification - something that is not part of the potable water, Standard 61 certification process.
Note that potable water approval is not the same as 'food contact' approval. And that heat (hot liquids/foods) increases the leaching out of nasty chemicals and probably also voids the certification.
