Structural Epoxy Wood Hardener and Consolidant for Deteriorated Wood.
Uses: LiquidWood® penetrates wood fibers and structurally hardens decayed and weathered wood permanently. Use indoors and outdoors and on both structural and decorative wood. Use to harden and restore wood on buildings, windows, columns, beams, decks, boats, furniture, artwork, and any wooden architectural elements. Use also as a primer or thinner for WoodEpox®.
Features & Benefits: LiquidWood epoxy wood consolidant is easy to use and produces permanent results. Its low viscosity allows it to penetrate deep into the wood and saturate deteriorated wood fibers prior to hardening. This eliminates the need to remove the areas that can be effectively consolidated. With LiquidWood, deteriorated wood that could crumble under finger pressure can be restored to structural, high-strength, durable, weather and insect-resistant wood. The absence of water and solvents eliminates shrinkage and enhances adhesion. It is low odor and produces virtually zero VOCs, making it safe and hazard-free in any environment. Treated wood will harden within hours, and like new wood, can easily be sawed, planed, drilled, nailed, painted, routed, and sanded.
Technical Characteristics: 1:1 mixing ratio. Combine equal parts A and B until fully blended. Pot life: approximately 30 minutes. Hardens within hours depending on temperature and other environmental factors. 100% epoxy solids. Waterproof. Coverage: 231 cubic inches per gallon. Effective coverage varies based on the porosity of the wood. Translucent amber color liquid resin. Apply by brushing, pouring, or injecting directly onto dry, bare wood. Application temperature range: 50-90° F. 100% compatible with WoodEpox.
Cold weather formulation is available for application temperatures as low as 35° F.
This product is GREENGUARD® Certified, meaning that it has been 3rd party verified to contain virtually no VOC’s (volatile organic compounds).

No. LiquidWood should only be used to consolidate rotted wood, and should be applied to the bare wood. It is not a protective coating or sealant.Answered by the admin

Yes,when putting product on wood and the end grain can't be used should I drill the wood an inject or just brush several coats? The dry rot is near the end of the joist.

You can apply the LiquidWood by brushing it on in layers until no more product absorbs. If you think the rot goes deeper into the wood, you can drill holes and inject it. I use west systems epoxy for many of my long assembly and clamping projects. I currently am restoring some badly deteriorated wooden sashes as their mortise and tenon joints have failed and ~25% of the joint is missing due to rotted wood. The restoration has three requirements; hardening of the remaining wood for both the tenons and the mortises, glueing the parts together, and filling the voids where wood is missing. Can I use liquidWood as both the wood hardener and epoxy adhesive? Also, will the WoodEpox have adhesive issues if the LiquidWood is allowed to fully cure before applying the WoodEpox? If the LiquidWood is not suitable as an epoxy adhesive is it compatible with an epoxy like West Systems? Is there a requirement to apply the epoxy adhesive when the liquid wood is still tacky? Thanks

You can use the LiquidWood to consolidate the rotted wood. You can also use it as an adhesive as long as you are able to clamp the pieces together until the LiquidWood is cured. If the LiquidWood fully cures prior to the WoodEpox application, you can just apply another thin layer of LiquidWood, allow it to get tacky, then apply the WoodEpox. I have a 1-pint container of LiquidWood Part A that still weighs 9oz, however when I went to use it today hardly anything pours out because the clear Part A solidified in the bottom. Can it be warmed up similar to WoodEpox Part A, or is there really nothing I can do except buy another 2-pint kit?

It does sound like your LiquidWood is crystalized. You can try warming it using the hot water method to see if that will make the product more fluid. Hi. I have a hollow core pocket door. Screws holding the carrier hardware have pulled out of the MDF top rail near one end. MDF has ~7" long split, mostly ~1/16" wide or less, but portion where screws pulled out left ~1/8" wide gap in the MDF. Depth of split/gap is ~4". Can I pour LiquidWood into the crack (and then clamp) to fill and bond the MDF, and be reasonably confident it will result in sufficient strength and density to successfully reinstall the carrier hardware and support the door (e.g. I will need to drill a pilot hole and reset the screws [perhaps using a threaded insert] for the carrier hardware into the repaired area)? Or what would you recommend? Thank you.

LiquidWood is a consolidant for rotted, soft, spongy wood. It is not a filler products. WoodEpox can be used for filling voids. WoodEpox can be drilled like a piece of wood when it's cured. If you need to thin the WoodEpox for thinner cracks, you can thin it with the LiquidWood. LiquidWood can be used as an adhesive, but you will need to clamp the wood together until the product cures completely.
