Wood Consolidation Restoration

At Hershey's Stained Glass Studio we use shrink-free adhesive putty wood replacement compound that can be used in any thickness in structural and decorative applications to replace, repair, extend, or fill wood and other materials.

WoodEpox bonds permanently with high strength to most surfaces. It fills cracks, holes, and voids of any size without the shrinking and crumbling of common wood fillers. It can replace or add missing or new sections in window frames and sills, furniture, sculptures, structural and decorative components, indoors and outdoors. Because of its strength and durability, it is as different from wood fillers as a permanent solution from temporary remedies.

WoodEpox succeeds because it can be painted, stained, wood-grained, sawed, nailed, planed, sanded, carved, and machined like wood. It can be cast into shapes and sculpted by hand before hardening. Bonds equally well to ceramics, concrete, metal, glass, fiberglass, and most rigid surfaces. Contains no VOC’s or noxious odors. It has a light, neutral color that can be changed, by mixing with stains, dyes, or pigments. Its no slump paste consistency that allows it to be applied like a putty to fill gaps, holes, or to build-up virtually any thickness and shape.

Technical Characteristics/Contents: WoodEpox is a light-weight epoxy adhesive system consisting of 2 components: resin paste (A) and hardener paste (B). When A and B are mixed in equal volumes, the blend hardens within 1-2 hours into a light-weight, nonshrinking, tough adhesive mass with high dimensional stability, chemical, water, heat and weather resistance. 100% solids. 1/1 ratio. 20 minute pot life.

We finish all wood consolidation restoration with a Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer™ (CPES™). It consists of a tough, flexible resin system in a solvent blend which dissolves the sap, oil and moisture found in wood. The resin system is derived from natural wood resin and develops a chemical adhesive bond to the wood fibers themselves.The wood is strengthened while allowing normal expansion and contraction with changes in temperature and humidity. When repairing wood that has mild dry rot, the CPES will migrate along the abnormal porosity which dry rot fungus creates within the wood, as long as it continues to be fed in. Impregnation of wood with CPES changes the cellulose of wood (which fungi and bacteria find tasty and easily digestible) into epoxy-impregnated cellulose which resists further attack by fungi and bacteria while reinforcing the wood, accomplishing restoration. Paint or varnish will last longer because the paint has a strongly attached, chemically compatible surface to bond onto.
