Whether you’re doing minor repairs or making drastic improvements to your boat, you need the right tools and products to get the job done. At Boating & RV, we offer a wide range of fibreglass, fillers, and adhesives that will help you create the look and finish you want.
Cloths and Tapes
Laminates and fibreglass surfaces require effective cloths and tapes to ensure proper function and safety.
We stock standard fibreglass cloths that are suitable for composites, constructions, or surface repairs on your boat. When used with the right resins, these cloths can also protect and waterproof different surfaces. If you’re doing work on timber hulls and decks, then dynel cloths are what you need. These light yet incredibly strong polyester cloths resist impact and heavy loads, making them the perfect additions for reinforcing high-impact areas with laminates.
We also supply fibreglass chopped mats (1m x 1m and 0.5m x 0.5m versions available) that are ideal for fabrications and boat modifications.
And if you need to fix or reinforce any fibreglass materials on your boat, we have fibreglass tapes (available in 50mm widths) that can make your work easier. These tapes are especially useful for minor repairs or reinforcing seams in fibreglass materials.
Adhesives and Coats
If you’re looking for high-quality bonding agents, we supply epoxy glues that provide the adhesive strength you need.
We recommend the Epiglass HT9000 (available in 334mL, 667mL, 1.3L, and 5.33L), which is a powerful epoxy resin that’s ideal for laminating, sheathing, and gluing. It can even be mixed with extenders to help with filling and fairing purposes. These glues are known for being user-friendly and low maintenance, providing low odours, minimal colour retention, and low viscosity.
Fillers are among the most important materials for boat repairs and maintenance, and we have a variety of them here at Boating & RV.
We have glass fibre fillers and glass bubbles that can be used for several types of maintenance and repair activities, particularly those that require smooth finishes. For more general fillings and repairs, a high-quality multipurpose putty may be what you need.
But if you’re working on timber, fibreglass or steel, then epoxy fillers are your top choice. These fillers can be applied to parts of your boat (even those that stay underwater), making them one of the most versatile fillers you can have in your toolkit.
And if you’re looking for a cheap, multi-purpose filler for different applications, then industrial talc offers plenty of value for your money. You can mix this with a variety of resins and materials to create decent filling materials, release agents, or additional protective surfaces.
We also supply pigment pastes that come in a variety of colours, giving you plenty of choices for creating the exact look and colour you want for your boat.
Resins and Repair Kits
Different repair work requires different types of resin, so it’s important you have the correct resin type for whatever work you’re doing. We offer standard polyester resins, foaming resins, and epoxy resins that you can combine with other materials for work on various parts and surfaces. We also have polyester gelcoats and flowcoats that you can use for creating the level of finish you’re aiming for.
