Consolidating rotten wood
It’s always best to to use a moisture meter to verify wood is dry.
Think about this for a moment…if you leave damp/wet wood behind your patch, there is a chance of the rot process continuing behind the patch, rotting new wood, destabilizing your patch (it would now be attached to rotted wood), and your patch would eventually fall out…additionally the Liquid Wood® won’t set properly (some say it will look a bit like mayonnaise), and you’ll have to scrape it out, clean the area with Acetone and start over. Or apply heat lamps, torpedo heater or other heat source to area within 2 hours of application.
Liquid Wood Epoxy crp0015-lw Liquid Wood® (Liquid Epoxy), is a deep penetrating wood consolidant that regenerates and waterproofs rotted, dried-out or spongy wood. Liquid Wood® Epoxy (sometimes shown as Liquid Wood Consolidant), can be poured, brushed, or injected into areas of rot and reinforces, rebuilds and waterproofs wood by hardening after penetrating.
It restores structural strength and durability to wood fibers. Liquid Wood® is considered both a consolidant and a primer.
Mixing - simply take equal portions in wetted gloved hands and mix together, like window putty or bread dough, until a perfectly even colour. This is a professional repair material, as used by window frame repair specialists.
Mixing - this filler/adhesive consists of two soft, creamy materials, which can optionally be gunned onto a mixing board to give a perfect mix ratio. There is no shrinkage and it is totally waterproof.

Tanking Applications - for priming areas ready to receive Jointfill Fillet Seal (to ensure good bonding and eliminate poor or excessive suction), or to prime over Tanked surfaces ready for Render coats of sand and cement.

Usage rate - by volume - allow about 1 litre per square metre on smooth surfaces - for example a 6.25 litre pack will give about 6 square metres at 1mm thickness, but for rough surfaces you may need 2mm or even 3mm of thickness. Brush on one coat, with horizontal brush strokes and allow to dry. Slurry can be rendered over whilst wet, or prime with another coat, or use Bonda Acryl as a primer.
Usage rates - Universal Mortar Joint Filling mix - mix with water to produce a stiff mortar, allow 1kg per 1 metre of joint approximately 25mm x 25mm (1 inch x 1 inch) at the floor to wall joint, or in cracks and voids.
