WoodEpox Wood Epoxy Filler
WoodEpox is a light-weight structural adhesive putty system and wood substitute consisting of 2 components:
- resin paste (A)
- hardener paste (B)
Not all brands of Wood Epoxy are considered structural. However, when Abatron Wood Epox® parts A and B are mixed, the blend hardens within 1-2 hours into a lighter-than-water non-shrinking, tough adhesive mass with high dimensional stability, chemical, water, heat and weather resistance.
It is available in 3 colors (all of which can be adjusted while mixing with stains, dyes or pigments)–Regular/Original (off white), Light Pine (tan), and Dark Brown.
It has a no-slump paste consistency that allows it to be applied like putty to fill gaps, holes, or to build up virtually any thickness and shape.
- Bonds permanently with high strength to most rigid surfaces
- Fills cracks, holes and voids of any size without the shrinking and crumbling typical of common wood fillers
- Can be sawed, nailed, planed, sanded and machined like wood
Paste Wood Epoxy (WoodEpox®) is for filling, adding and building up.
Liquid Wood Epoxy (LiquidWood®) is for penetrating and solidifying punky areas and can be used as a prep for WoodEpox®.
WoodEpox is available in 3 colors but can also be color-adjusted to better match the surrounding wood with powdered pigments in several colors.
NOTE: 2 pints/quarts/gallons means 1 part of each A & B for two parts total…e.g. 2 pints is 1 pint of A and 1 pint of B, once mixed well together they start a chemical reaction that becomes warm to the touch and are then ready to use.
NOTE: Wood Epox sets up best when the wood is dry and the temperature is above 50 degrees. Below 50, you need to warm of the area to be treated (hair dryer?), and store the Wood Epox at room temperature. Below 32 degrees you’ll need to use the cold weather version which is expensive and ships under a hazardous shippers tag…better to wait for the weather to improve.
NOTE: Wood Epox is light, fairly dry, slightly crumbly. When mixing A & B parts together, work over a table or some such where you can pick up and re-incorporate the pieces. If you want to moisten it a bit…add some Liquid Wood or Isopropyl Alcohol.
NOTE: Here is a note from the mfg. regarding possible pea size clumps in one part of the epoxy
It’s crystallization that could have occurred due to long and/or cold storage. He can warm the product. There are warming instructions on the side of the Part A container. It’s a warm water method. He can also put the container in a warm over, 150 degrees F, with the lid sitting on the top but not sealed, for about 20-30 minutes.
