Customer Questions & Answers
Q Install in sound wood and glue with what product? Use would be in a boat transom that has partially rotted wood core.Answered by the admin
You can use the Fiberglass Reinforcing Rod in conjunction with our wood restoration products, LiquidWood and WoodEpox. LiquidWood to consolidate the rotted wood and WoodEpox to fill in areas.
Q In what applications would you use the fiberglass reinforce rods? I have a post rotted at the base, would I need to insert rods into the post before I apply the wood epox?Answered by the admin

Q I have 4 - 5.25 glulam roof beams installed at a 3 /12 pitch supported at one end with wood columns at the exterior edge of a sunroom. The end has rotted away as well as the column. Would these fiberglass rods inserted into the end with a splice of new wood work?Answered by the admin

Q Could you please give us a brief procedure on how to use these rods? I have rotten plywood on a motorhome and wondering is this should be used with the LiquidWood with this or just inject LiquidWood drilling 1/8" diameter holes and inject the epoxy? I will also coat the outside with LiquidWood to waterproof seal and then paint over it. Any thoughts would be very helpful.Answered by the admin
