EZ-Tex Marine Epoxy Repair Compound

It’s time to check out EZ-Tex, a general-purpose epoxy repair compound from Pettit Paint (Rockaway, New Jersey). An excellent choice for high-strength, waterproof, permanent repairs, EZ-Tex has a 1:1 ratio for simple measuring and mixing. The compound’s buttery consistency makes it easy to spread for an even surface and, once cured, EZ-Tex is effortless to sand but is hard enough to withstand drilling, tapping, or sawing. Ideal for filling cracks, gouges, and voids, it will not sag and will not shrink.
