3 Reasons To Use Structural Epoxy For Wood Repair

3 Reasons To Use Structural Epoxy For Wood Repair

Structural epoxy is a material similar to epoxy resin, which is a two-part, high-strength chemical polymer. It can be used in a variety of building and repair applications. This makes it an excellent tool to restore your property’s wooden components so they can regain their former glory.


To convince you further, here are 3 reasons to use structural epoxy for wood repair:


Binds And Fills Gaps Between Pieces

 

Structural epoxy is a viscous substance by nature. Moreover, as it’s a chemical polymer, it has a liquid state that turns into a solid one after it dries and cures. Thus, unlike the average epoxy resin, structural epoxy resin has high strength and density that makes it an exceptional material to bind and fill gaps between pieces.


Restores The Integrity Of Wood

 

High-grade structural epoxy is capable of restoring the integrity of wooden products by seeping through the cracks and crevices present on the surface of the wood that often runs deep with time. This is especially true for rotting wood, one of the most common problem areas in residential properties. Reinforcing such wood with structural epoxy ensures that they can still last as they get some protection from moisture and termite infestations. Thus, this industrial adhesive offers external as well as internal protection for wood that’s exposed to the elements such as shingles, window shutters and door frames.


Has an Exceptionally Long Lifespan

 

These plastic resins with high-strength grades deteriorate a lot slower than their lower-density counterparts. This ensures that structural epoxy has an exceptionally long lifespan and performance wherever it is applied. It can last for decades, acting like a protective layer or support structure for your property.


Thus, the wooden products in and around your property receive a second life thanks to structural epoxy and this repair can be done very economically, unlike replacing all the decaying wood.
