WoodEpox is a shrink-free epoxy putty used to fill, repair and replace missing wood, permanently. Abosolv is a general purpose thinner and solvent for epoxy. It is used to thin LiquidWood when necessary and can also be used for general epoxy clean-up.
Use these products together to restore and repair wood on windowsills and frames, columns, doors, moldings, clapboards, balustrades, boats, furniture and anywhere wood needs to be strengthened or repaired.
Features and Benfits: LiquidWood and WoodEpox are 100% compatible, and when used together, they create structural, shrink-free, permanent repairs that mimic original wood.

Both products can be machined with traditional woodworking tools and are paintable just like wood. These products are proven by decades of exceptional performance and are continually specified for use on prominent and historic structures. They are easy to use and produce professional results. Abosolv is an ideal inclusion in the kit as a thinner for LiquidWood and a general cleaning and smoothing solvent for both LiquidWood and WoodEpox.

Yes. You can use LiquidWood to harden any rotted, soft wood and then WoodEpox to fill in any missing areas. I would like to use your WoodEpox to fill knot holes on a new pressure treated deck. I would like to then use "Behr Deckplus" solid color Wood stain on the deck. Will the deck stain adhere to the WoodEpox? Behr also has a "Multi surface Primer and Sealer No 436" if that would help.

Be sure to scuff up and/or sand the surface of the WoodEpox so that your primer and/or paint/stain adhere well to the WoodEpox. I’m applying this to a vertical round column that rotted at the bottom. I was going to heat bend a piece of acrylic to get the mold for my column. Then ratchet strap it in place as the resin is curing. I guess I’m wondering is does this stuff solely cure with heat? Or does it need light as well? I have to seal the inside of the acrylic with red tape before I put the epoxy in. So essentially it won’t be getting any sunlight to it. Thank you!!

The LiquidWood and WoodEpox are epoxy products that cure by chemical reaction. We are working on a log cabin. I've noticed with previous uses of the wood restoration system that it is necessary to kill the wood rot first. There is a Nissus product called Jecta which I would like to use for that purpose, to inject it deep into the logs and also cover the rotted out areas with it before using Liquid Wood and Wood Epox. Is this possible? What is Abatron's recommendation for using Jecta with your wood restoration products. I know that you recommend Nissus BoraCare as a spray and I could do that, but I really rather use their Jecta.

We don't have any experience with that particular product. When using the BoraCare prior to application of our wood restoration products, we always tell our customer's to make sure the wood is completely dry prior to applying LiquidWood and/or WoodEpox. I would suggest you do a small test area to see if the products are compatible. how long does it take to dry

When applying at room temperature, it could take several hours or more for the curing process. You can apply direct heat to accelerate the curing process. Smaller amounts of product(s) will take much longer to cure than larger amounts of the product(s).
The LiquidWood and WoodEpox products work great. It does require some practice to understand the cure rates, to have the right selection of applicator bottles, and to judge how best to time the changes in viscosity after mixing with the project needs. Also, WoodEpox is stainable, but in order to match adjacent wood, I have the best success in repairing mahogany floors and doors by reapplying stain directly on wet varnish using a cotton swab. That’s because the wiping step after staining will typically favor the removal of stain from the WoodEpox patch compared with the adjacent wood, and, later, the varnish brush will also typically further swipe away the stain from the WoodEpox patch. I have not tried the added pigment method (yet).
8 years ago, I repaired my Airstream travel trailer’s plywood floor. It had a hole rotted completely through and also an area around the wall perimeter at the rear corner. The perimeter of the wood subfloor was soft, with splintering and delaminated plywood layers. I decided to try the Abatron Wood Restoration Kit, the quarts size.
First I dried the floor, following the instructions. Then I drill holes through the upper layers of the delaminate plywood, about 2″ to 3″ apart, so that the epoxy liquid could penetrate easily. Next I used the 2 part putty compound, reinforced with layers of fiberglass cloth, to fill in the 2″ x 8″ hole. Next, after mixing the 2 part epoxy liquid, I used a small tipped bottle to inject it into each drill hole. I went back to each hole multiple times, until no additional liquid would absorb. The whole surface of the soft area was completely wetted with the absorbed epoxy. The next day I had a solid floor!
I have tow the trailer many thousands of miles since then, all over the USA from the Florida Keys to the north woods of Maine, from the Atlantic ocean to Yellow Stone and Glacier NP.
The repair has held up under all the abuse I have given it. I am really happy that I made the repair this way.
It saved me at least a thousand $, compared to replacing plywood.

I had my doubts that Abatrons Liquidwood and WoodEpox would work. I have two 4×6 posts on my screen porch with some rot. Using a dremel tool, I took out all the rotted wood. In addition, scraped off some of the paint. Not knowing how much LiquidWood to mix. I mixed 4oz of part A and B then applied. It was way more than I needed. Then waited for it to get tacky. Then I put on the gloves and mixed equal parts of the WoodEpox. Still having my Doubts that this lightweight stuff is going to work, I fill in the area with about the size of a softball with WoodEpox. I waited until the next morning it was dry and solid. So I sanded it and gave it a few coats of paint. I have to say Abatrons Liquidwood and WoodEpox is Amazing and easy to work with and it fixed my issue. Wow, this stuff is great.
