ROTFIX is a two-part penetrating epoxy wood hardener. It waterproofs and reinforces wood after it penetrates and hardens. It is 100% active ingredient with no fillers or thinners.
Directions: Mix two parts of RotFix Epoxy (Part A) with one part of RotFix Hardener (Part B) by volume. A pair of mixing bottles is included with "fill to" marks for easy mixing and application. Mix no more than can be applied within 30 minutes. For easy measurement and application, use the enclosed bottle. No thinning is necessary but can be thinned with acetone if multiple coats and increased penetration is desired.
Application: Apply to affected area with mixing/applicator squeeze bottle, syringe, brush or roller. The wood must be dry. Repeat if necessary. You cannot use too much. Make sure all surfaces are coated. No thinning is necessary. However, in cooler temperatures and to increase penetration with reduced viscosity, it can be thinned with acetone.
Technique: An easy method is to apply the RotFix from the mixing bottle and brush it out with a small paintbrush. Make small batches, just a few ounces at a time. Make sure all surfaces being repaired get coated with at least one heavy coat. Have a small container of sand nearby and pour any unused RotFix into the sand to avoid curing in the bottle.
- TIP: When temperatures outside are above 80 degrees, keep the A and B components in an ice chest. Otherwise, when components are hot, they can react and harden in 5 minutes or less - before you have a chance to use them. Heat accelerates the curing process.
- TIP: When it is cold outside, cure times can take many times longer. Warm the components to room temperature or keep them in an inside pocket of your coat to accelerate cure times.
Uncured mixed RotFix (Part A and Part B) may be cleaned up with white vinegar or acetone, then flushed with water.
