Wood Restoration Kit
Conveniently Packaged Kit Containing the Essential Products for Restoring and Repairing Rotted, Deteriorated, or Damaged Wood: LiquidWood®, WoodEpox®, and Abosolv®*.
*24 fl. oz. kit does not include Abosolv.
Uses: LiquidWood is a penetrating epoxy wood consolidant, used to structurally harden, regenerate and waterproof decayed wood. 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. They bond permanently even to previously damaged substrates and are resistant to further damage by water, insects, UV, and more. 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.
Available in four sizes, these kits contain LiquidWood Part A and Part B, WoodEpox Part A and Part B, and Abosolv*. Kits also contains disposable gloves, putty knife, mixing sticks, and instructions.

WoodEpox will bond to itself. I have used LiquidWood on wood rot on a outdoor door threshold/step, and plan to use WoodEpox to fill in the cracks. Will it stick to the PVC trim? Can it be pained with an oil based paint?
- Will WoodEpox stick to a aluminum door so water will be stopped? Do you prime WoodEpox before caulking around it?
- I applied Liquid Wood to a door with some rotted wood areas and filled in most of them with Wood Epox but I missed two spots. The Liquid Wood is now dry and hard. Can I fill in those two missed spots with Wood Epox? Will it stick to the dry Liquid Wood?
- We need to repair floor joists that have termite damage. At the joist bearing, the wood looks like swiss cheese. Can LiquidWood be injected into the wood (possibly multiple times) to essentially fill internal voided sections of wood? Can plastic packaging tape be applied to the bottom and sides of the joist in this area to contain the liquid wood?

You can inject the LiquidWood to consolidate any of the soft wood. To fill the voids you can use the WoodEpox.A We had very similar problems in our house, from termites and from simple rot, in flooring, joists, and sills. (Yours sounds in better shape than ours actually. This was Thomas Jefferson's cousin's house. Central Virginia is humid and obviously the house has been around a while.) What you describe is about what we've done. Some parts of the sill plate were hollow or like foam from termites. I have done tape as you say, but mostly just used Liquid Wood to harden the wood at the bottom first, let that harden completely, then continued to fill the rest with a mix of LiquidWood and wood shavings from woodworking. Frankly I think even peat moss might do. (The epoxy becomes like rock and all the shavings did was give it form and bulk.) Injecting worked here too. I used 60ml Luer lock syringes, dispensing needles (inches long, large gauge, e.g, low number) and if I couldn't force that through the rotten wood, I first drilled small diameter holes with a very long drill bit and injected into that. It absorbs best if slightly thinned with Abosolv,and then redone with full strength. You can also mix the LiquidWood and the Wood Epox to make something of a slurry, but for the sill plate (which is load bearing like your joists) I found the mix with saw dust/ shavings the best. And cheaper. Wood Epox gives a nice finish to windows, etc. but frankly for the sill plate, the hardened shavings looks pretty much like actual wood and hardened into a very solid block. If it weren't for Abatron and Bondo this house would be gone. Good luck Mary, you sound like you know what to do.
