Marine Epoxy

Marine epoxy is a special formulation of epoxy. Marine epoxies are designed to withstand water, oil, gas, cold, heat, and pressure -- the special environment to which ships and boats are exposed.

Even so, there are two classes of marine epoxies. The less expensive epoxies tend to "blush" -- become covered in a chalky or waxy coating as they cure or once exposed to water or high humidity. Look for "non-blushing" epoxies: all though more expensive, these do not form the blush layer and generally do not require sanding between coats in order to get good adhesion.

While designed for marine use, marine epoxies make a good choice for non-marine uses (such as toilet repair) that are going to endure similar harsh conditions.
