Customer Questions & Answers
Q Your products have come highly recommended by professionals who use it every day and I'm already chomping at the bit to give it a try on a 160 year old church window. In my research, I've heard two carpenters tout Bondo, but I've said no, because Bondo doesn't expand and contract like wood does. How do your products react when wood expands and contracts with the weather?Answered by the admin
Our products allow for some expansion / contraction of the wood. WoodEpox contains no moisture and will not shrink away from the wood.
Q I have the top of a decking joist that is partially rotted out and would like to know if a plywood form can be used to mimic the shape of the wood joist that is rotted and removed? If yes, is there anything that needs to be applied to the inside of the plywood form that will be in contact with the WoodEpox to allow it to release? If no, I assume the plywood form should be removed immediately after the WoodEpox is placed and its final shape?Answered by the admin Yes, you can do as you described. You'll need to use some type of release agent. You can use something like butcher's wax, silicone spray, pam cooking spray or saran wrap.
Q I own a log home slightly east of Ottawa (Canada). Very cold temperatures in winter and a lot of snow. I have some rotten wood patches which I want to fix. Do you have a dealer in Canada who can help me with products and information/instructions? I want to use Sashco stains to stain my log house. So compatibility with Sashco stains is a must.Answered by the admin
There is a dealer locator on our website. You can search for a dealer in your area here: https://www.abatron.com/dealer-locator/. WoodEpox will accept a stain on the surface but it will not soak in like a regular piece of wood. You could try a combination of mixing in dry powder pigments with the WoodEpox and then stain the surface to get a closer match.
Q oI have a Column base that is rotting. It is a very large column on historical mansion. Will this liquid wood and a poxy kit work for this purpose and if so can I order it from you as there is no dealer close to meAnswered by the admin
Yes. LiquidWood and WoodEpox can be used to repair the column. There is a dealer locator on the home page of our website.
Q To prevent further decay in a pressure treated 6X6 post around the area where your products are applied, I wonder if pre-treatment with a copper naphthenate product like Woodlife CopperCoat in the cavity to be filled is advisable. I am concerned that decay within the post could continue adjacent to the epoxy. Perhaps you feel an application of Bora-Care is sufficient and less likely to cause the moisture level to be too high in the wood. If pre-treatment is not advised, could any harm be caused to the epoxy by post-treatment of the exterior of the post with the CopperCoat?Answered by the admin
You can use BoraCare or any other type of Borate type product, prior to application of our LiquidWood and WoodEpox. Be sure the wood is dried back out completely prior to application of our products.
