The Rot Doctor

Hi folks,

In the past few days I have encountered damage to a 20 ft. travel trailer I own. I've removed a portion of a chip board platform that serves as the coach floor. Under that is 2 x 3 framing that has been soaking in water for who knows how long. There are various stages of rot in process.

I searched the net and came across your site. Does it sound like your products (CPES™, Fill-it™, and L&L™) might be a solution toward restoring a sound frame before a new floor is installed?

Thank you,
Bill P


Yes indeed, these are the products that would would need.

You would remove any loose wood, allow the framing to dry, and then saturate the frames with our CPES™ (Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer™). This will stop the rotting process and harden the wood. After about a week cure time for the CPES™, you would go back and fill all cracks, holes, grooves etc. with the Fill-It™ Epoxy Filler. This is smoothed in on top of the CPES™-treated wood, and it will bond with the wood at the chemical level. It makes a very strong structural repair.

In these types of applications I doubt that you would need the Layup & Laminating Resin™.

The cured Fill-It™ is VERY hard and VERY strong, and we suggest that when putting nails/screws through it, you first drill a small pilot hole.

Coverage for the CPES™ is going to be about 150 sq ft per gallon in your application. We would also suggest that you treat the underside of the new flooring with the CPES™ for future rot protection.

The amount of Fill-It™ you would need will depend entirely on the area volume to be filled.
