How To Seal Wood To Prevent Moisture Damage

Here’s an easy way to help make new or existing bare, unfinished wood last longer with our easy-to-use, penetrating epoxy sealer. The key is to use small batches, mixing only as much as you can apply in 20 minutes. See the Technical Data Sheet for details.

What You’ll Need:


STEP 1 – PREPARE THE SURFACE

  • Start with clean, dry, bare, unfinished wood.
  • Dampen a clean, dry rag with acetone and wipe the surface to remove contaminants.
  • Let the surface dry completely.

STEP 2 – MEASURE AND MIX THE RESIN & HARDENER

  • Mix only as much as you can apply in 20 minutes.
  • Pour or use the 2:1 pumps to dispense 2 parts resin to 1 part hardener (by volume) into a clean, dry plastic cup.
  • Stir for 2 minutes to mix completely.

STEP 3 – THIN THE MIXED EPOXY (OPTIONAL)

  • To increase penetration, add acetone or denatured alcohol. Add solvent up to equal the amount of mixed epoxy.
  • Stir to mix completely.

STEP 4 – APPLY WITH A BRUSH OR ROLLER

  • Apply epoxy immediately after mixing.
  • Let it dry till it’s tacky to the touch, and apply a second coat.

STEP 5 – ALLOW TO CURE

  • After curing, remove any amine blush by washing the surface with mild soap and warm water. Let it dry completely.
  • Cured epoxy can be sanded lightly, then painted or varnished.
  • Cured epoxy is 100% waterproof.

How to Repair Rotted Wood


Repairing and restoring rotted wood is easy with TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy because it glues wood fibers back together and seals wood pores to stop rot and prevent future rot. The key is to mix Penetrating Epoxy in small batches — mix only as much as you can apply in 20 minutes. See the Technical Data Sheet for detailed instructions.

What You’ll Need:


STEP 1 – PREPARE THE WOOD

  • Start with a clean, dry surface. Solvent wipe with acetone to remove dust and contaminants.
  • In areas of deep rot, drill a series of holes in the decayed wood.

STEP 2 – MEASURE AND MIX THE RESIN & HARDENER

  • Mix only as much as you can apply in 20 minutes.
  • Pour or use the 2:1 pumps to dispense 2 parts resin to 1 part hardener (by volume) into a clean, dry plastic cup.
  • Stir thoroughly for 2 minutes, then apply immediately.

STEP 3 – APPLY WITH A SYRINGE OR BRUSH

  • Use a syringe or brush to apply liberally.
  • Give the epoxy time to sink in.
  • If additional coats or injections are needed, allow epoxy to reach a tacky state before reapplication.
  • If pieces of wood are missing, apply TotalBoat Fixwood wood repair epoxy putty and shape, as needed.

High-solids, low-viscosity, no-odor formula seals and protects new wood

TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy is designed to sink in deeper and cure stronger than other epoxies, without the odor or harmful VOCs. At a 2:1 instead of 1:1 mix, it’s only slightly thicker than other penetrating sealers, but that’s a good thing. Low viscosity and 100% solids formula means more material to fill the grain, seal the wood more completely, and provide extended protection against rot-causing moisture. And, because there are no harmful VOCs, there’s no toxic odor.

Stop active rot, strengthen wood, and prevent further deterioration beneath the surface

Our penetrating epoxy works from the inside out to saturate rotted wood deeply. It penetrates both the porous, rotted areas, and the surrounding, healthy wood. As it cures, it effectively bonds the rotted wood and the sound wood to restore structural integrity. Since it’s hard to know exactly where the rotted and the healthy wood meet, especially in cases of extreme rot, drill a series of holes into the decayed wood and inject Penetrating Epoxy to start the restoration process. It sinks deeply into dry, punky wood and strengthens it.

Make topcoats stick better and last longer

The longer an epoxy takes to go off, the deeper into wood it will seep. TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy cures slightly slower in order to create a hard, waterproof surface that not only prevents rot, but provides a stable coating for varnish, primer, or paint to adhere to more tenaciously. Since it sticks better, it’ll stay stronger longer to keep UV-resistant topcoats from failing. The longer cure time is definitely worth the longer-lasting protection and the time and money you saved preserving existing wood.

Different formulas for different temperature ranges

For temperatures from 40-65°F, use TotalBoat Cold Weather Penetrating Epoxy. When temperatures are 65-90°F, use TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy. Each formula provides excellent coverage and cure.

Specifications:

  • Mix ratio by volume: 2 parts Penetrating Epoxy Resin (Part A) to 1 part Hardener (Part B)
  • Application: Brush, roller, syringe, or epoxy spreader
  • Application @ 40°F: Pot life is 40 minutes, full cure takes 4 days
  • Application @ 80°F: Pot life is 20 minutes, full cure takes 2 days

Application Warnings:

  • The wood must be bare and unfinished. TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy will not penetrate and level well when applied over some stains. Always test an area first. DO NOT USE on top of Minwax oil-based stains.
  • TotalBoat Cold Weather Penetrating Epoxy should not be used as a fast-cure epoxy in warmer temperature conditions because doing so can be unsafe and result in premature exotherm, improper cure, and brittleness.
