Rustins wood hardener 250mlA solvent-based moisture-curing reactive polymer solution.
Rustins Wet Rot Wood Hardener is designed to penetrate deeply into and harden rotten or decayed wood. Once fully dried, the polymer strengthens and reinforce the deteriorated wood to support the use of wood filler and provide a seal against further moisture penetration.
Suitable for interior and exterior use. Optimises the service life of a rotten wood repair and is a cost-effective alternative to joinery replacement. Can dry in 2 hours to allow rapid completion of repair work.
Remove loose, decayed or very soft wood until a fairly sound base is exposed. Rustins Wet Rot Wood Hardener is moisture-hardened, however the wood should be reasonably dry and free from grease, dirt and oil.
Shake well before use. Apply liberally by brush, saturating the wood. Wait until each coat has been absorbed by the wood and reapply. Ideally this should be done as a continuous process for maximum penetration depending on the absorbency of the wood. Continue with repeated applications until a surface film is formed.
Coats Multiple coats. This is a continuous application process, (see above). Drying Time 5 minutes, (see above). Allow a minimum of 2 hours before applying Rustins Wood Filler over Rustins Wet Rot Wood Hardener or until hardener film becomes fairly touch-dry. Re-coating Time 5 minutes, (see above). Allow a minimum of 2 hours before applying Rustins Wood Filler over Rustins Wet Rot Wood Hardener or until hardener film becomes fairly touch-dry.
