Using Our Epoxies
Our epoxies are highly specialized and represent an integrated system specifically formulated for the restoration and repair of wood. The basic resins from which our epoxy products are formulated are derived from wood pulp because this kind of resin approximates the toughness and flexibility of the original wood.  All of our epoxy products are derived from this pure resin, and all are chemically compatible with each other. No other manufacturer derives resins from this source or produces epoxies with the resilient toughness of our epoxies.

No polymer resin is tougher than an epoxy, and no polymer resin bonds to wood as well as epoxy, and this is why epoxies are widely considered as being best choice for the restoration, rebuilding, or bonding of wood. Polyester resins (typically used in fiberglass boat construction) are brittle and do not bond well with wood, and there are some “wood restoration” products on the market that use the polyester-resin base. They are poor choices for the restoration of wood. Acrylics are also used as “wood-hardeners”, but they lack strength and durability. Used properly, our epoxies will restore original or greater strength to rotten or deteriorated wood.

The key product in our system of wood restoration and repair is CPES (Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer). CPES is always the first product to be used in the wood restoration process. In lightly rotted wood it will often be all that is needed to check the deterioration process and to restore hardness. In more severely rotted wood it is always applied first, and then other of our epoxy products are added for additional strength, and as bulk to replace missing wood. They all bond together chemically to form an integrated repair.
