Used PC-Woody Wood Epoxy Paste after treating the rotten wood...
March 10, 2020
Used PC-Woody Wood Epoxy Paste after treating the rotten wood with PC-Petrifier Wood Hardener. The epoxy paste filled the hole nicely without shrinking and it is as hard and solid as the original wood. I had a top of a post that was rotted away.
It does the job. It also seems more finicky than the white paste epoxy in terms of not setting right unless the proportions are spot on; and it's a lot harder to smoothe than, say, wood filler or caulk. But sanded, it does give a hard, eventually smooth surface.
The stuff works out amazing.
I highly recommend this product. If you have any problems of wood rottening, it will b a magic to get it repaired.
I hope that the product will be sold in Canada as I had to order on line and got it in State.
I had a tough job that needed a tough product, and PC Woody Epoxy was the key.
Areas of dry rot on the base of my huge weight-bearing columns had to be removed. I then sealed and replaced those vulnerable areas with the epoxy that became rock hard. The PC Wood Epoxy gave me the confidence in a job well done. I couldn't risk it by using anything else.
I had to special order my PC Woody, but it arrived to Home Depot in just a few days.
The two epoxy solutions are hard to mix. I found the easiest way to stir the A and B together was in a strong bucket placed between my feet while I stood over it with a sturdy wood stick or bar. I then stirred the contents from about my waist area.
PC Woody Wood Epoxy Paste is great! I have more similar work to do on my house, and I have more PC Woody Epoxy on the way!
I used this for a wooden wagon wheel in my garden that had rotted on the bottom from the weather. I first used the PC hardener and then mixed this together and filled the holes with a spatula. The results are great. The color is lighter than the wood, but since it's on the bottom you can't see it. And now I have my wagon wheel back for a while longer!
Did alot of research after using mimiwax product which had horrible fumes and wasn't plyable like the pc . Below are 1 before pic u can see the deep cracks in the wood and the1 pic of after I applied the putty it leaves a smooth tan surface after applying the pc wood putty but u still.have to sand it some .The PC wood putty is terrific its 2 parts mix together very well and apply it. It goes on smooth and if u have some natural alcohol it spreads on even smoother I used it on some support beams that were getting weathered but before i applied the putty I used PC wood.hardener applying 2 coats and let it dry for a day then put wood putty over it to fill.in the cracks in the wood I recommend the PC wood hardener and the PC woody wood putty they go well together especially if u want the project ur working on to last and not have to fix it the following year.Fyi it rained before i was able to sand and paint over the area i was fixing and not knowing if this product was going to crack or fall off the wood beams let me just say it held up well in the rain it didn't crack or thin out, so i know the wood post will holdup for many more years. So yes if u want a good product get the Pc woody wood putty and if ur wood is cracking or weathered real.bad apply the pc wood.hardener 1st and u will see just how awesome this product is when patching holes in wood.or building up a piece of wood that was rotten etc...U wont be sorry the benefits will out weigh the cost
Used quite extensively on weathered patio wood and am very satisfied with the results. It applies nicely and fills in cracks, nail holes, small gouges, etc. well. Bonds and sands very satisfactory and looks and feels like wood. Once the 2 part product is mixed the cure time is limited to a half an hour or so in warm weather so mix small patches and apply immediately. HOT water assist with clean up and I found craft wood jumbo popsicle sticks work great for initial scooping of product from each jar and mixing it together in a throw away plastic cup.
Pros: Even Application, High Quality of Material, Easy to Apply, Easy Instructions, Good Coverage, Good Protection, Looks Great
I used it to repair a dry rot 4x12 beam that was exposed to the weather. I cleaned it and used the PC Petrifier as instructed then the epoxy. The next day I shaped it and primed the beam. The alternative was to remove or replace the beam. It was framed in between two walls, so not a practical solution to maintain the design of the home.
Pros: Very Adhesive, High Quality of Material, Easy to Apply, Easy Instructions, Good Coverage, Easy to Use, Good Protection, Looks Great
Works exactly as described on the label. Was able to completely fill in a 4" by 6" support post near the concrete base that was 75% rotted and exposed to elements. Product exceeded my expectations and the helpful reference materials furnished by Home Depot was a plus.
