Customer Questions & Answers
Q What is the shelf life of leftover liquid wood & woodepox stored at room temperature? I have another project to do but it's been 2 years since the last project. Thank you.Answered by the admin
You should have at least 1 year or longer shelf life as long as it's been stored at room temperature and sealed tightly. We have customers that are able to use it for many, many years with no problems.
Q I have used liquid wood for years. I have some swelling on hardboard (aka fibreboard, synthetic)lap siding.My plan is to sand the swelled areas smooth, then apply liquid wood, and then paint. Do you think this will work? ThanksAnswered by the admin
You only use LiquidWood on rotted, soft, spongy wood. It's a consolidant for rotted wood. It is not a protectorant or sealant type product.
Q I applied the product (A & B) to exterior wood and it is still tacky to the touch after several days - any suggestions to harden it? Thanks!Answered by the admin
Please call 800-445-1754 to discuss.
Q I have a cabin in the backcountry where I need to use this product. I'd like to leave the cans up there through the winter so I can use it next spring without packing them out. Temps will definitely be below zero F at times over the winter. Would this stuff be functional when it thaws again?Answered by the admin
The products should be stored at room temperature. You don't want to expose them to very hot or very cold temperatures. Cold temps will cause crystallization.
Q Are you aware of any uses of Liquid Wood for reattaching a fir veneer to an exterior wood door where it has buckled off because the manufacturer apparently did't use an exterior glue and moisture got inside the builtup core?? I've used gallons (seriously) in the past to reconsolidate totally rotted out window frames, door rails and styles, deck posts, column bases, etc. It seems that the liquid wood would solve my issue with moisture getting in that causes the de-lamination. But I'm concerned that perhaps it doesn't get permanently hard enough. My alternative is gorilla glue unless you have a better solution. thanks.Answered by the admin
You can use LiquidWood as a adhesive as long as you are able to clamp the pieces together until it cures. We do have other adhesives, perhaps our Epotron 5 would be a good option.
