It does expand, which is what makes it work. It expands into the crack and that is what seals it.
I do not think it would work in wood because the epoxy expands as it works. Using it in wood could cause the crack to get larger as the epoxy expands. You might try wood filler and then a sealer....polyurethane or varnish, on the wood to keep it water tight. Remember though that wood it porous, so keeping it water tight over time is nearly impossible. Hope this helps.
We're not clear what is meant by a "rod hole repair kit". We would suggest calling in to speak with one of Technical Support reps - 800/999-5099. Thank you!
The product was designed for and tested on concrete. We do not have any information for its use with limestone. Thank you!

There is currently an inventory issue with the ETIPAC10KT. In the meantime you might consider the ETI-LV (please refer to page 284 of our C-A-2016 Anchoring and Fastening Systems for Concrete and Masonry catalog). The EDT22S will be needed as well to dispense this product. Thank you!
We have not tested stains on our epoxies. We specifically test this product for water absorption and it does not absorb water to any significant amount. “Water-based stain” is too broad a statement for us to really offer advice. A “solid stain” is really like a paint – what we usually consider a stain is actually a “transparent stain” in the coatings industry. An epoxy will not take a transparent stain as concrete does and will not look the same. A second issue is that most stains do not have good adhesion modifiers to promote bonding to a highly cross-linked epoxy. You may be able to find a good stainable primer that will stick to the epoxy – the repair will still look different than original, but may not be as noticeable. We would recommend testing the primer on something else (cardboard or a small concrete block) to first to see if the primer/stain combination will match. Thank you!
No, this kit is NOT for seepage
If we are understanding this correctly, this crack was repaired in the past. We are not sure if the leak is due to a new crack forming and would recommend addressing the cause of the crack before trying another repair. Thank you!
