Customer Questions & Answers
Q I have a section of rotted plywood due to water damage. It is attached to the stucco (exterior) so the HOA will not replace it. Will this product work to strengthen the plywood so we can have the drywall hung? Also, how much would be needed for a 3' (width) x 8' (height) section? Thank you!Answered by the admin
LiquidWood® should help strengthen the plywood. The amount you need depends on the extent of the deterioration and how it is applied. Call technical support at 800/445-1754 to discuss this further.
Q I am planning on treating about 16 beams with past powder beetle damage. I am trying to determine what the coverage is so I purchase the correct amount. If I also get woodepox will it yield more coverage?Answered by the admin
The coverage of WoodEpox® is 231 cubic inches per gallon. The coverage of LiquidWood® is the same, however, since it penetrates deteriorated wood, coverage is dependent on the extent of the deterioration and how thoroughly the wood is saturated.
Q Hi, (1) would it work (like Clay) to make figures / statues filling it to silicon mold. LiquidWood or maybe a mixed to WoodEpox. (2) Does it get smaller when it dries out?Answered by the admin
LiquidWood® can be cast into molds to make clear castings. It does not shrink when hardened.
Q I have a slab of maple with some soft edges (natural edges), I would like to harden these areas with Liquid Wood and use as a coffee table. Can the treated wood be painted with a polyurethane? Thank youAnswered by the admin
Q 1.Can I apply either acrylic paint or oil based paint over hardened liquid wood? 2. Can I use liquid wood as a protective coat over cured acrylic or oil paint on my front door?Answered by the admin
You can apply acrylic and oil-based paints over LiquidWood®. LiquidWood® is not a coating, like a paint, so we do not recommend applying it as a coating.
