There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
it is absolutely useless for the purpose advertised.
amazon does not accept returns on this as it is a 'hazardous' item.
so i am out a substantial amount of money.

This stuff is almost like Mod Podge thinned out a little (which I've used as hardener in the past and it worked better!) it soaks in a bit but a heavy coat or overlapping strokes makes it sit on the surface and dry sort of translucent grayish. Bubbles neither pop nor soak in, just dry like the edges of a 1st grader's construction paper art project. Similar texture to polyeurethane, almost rubbery. Not hard at all.
The 10 bucks I spent I won't cry over, but having trusted the brand for so long I went ahead and used it without testing first. This was on a sculpture piece I was prepping to sell, and now I'm trying to peel glue off a very fragile and intricate surface without damaging the work. Ironically it's near rage inducing to try to remove even though it's not bonded inside the wood, not even a steel brush dremel tip did much (removed most of the shine, not any material.)
For JBW products I'll stick to epoxy from now on.
First, of course, dig out all rot. This product will seal and harden rot but I'd rather remove it and then patch the area for a bona fide long term repair. A Dremel with a circular wood cutting bit works great to clean the area of all dead/rotted/decayed wood. Then brush this JB Weld rot stop over the area to get any missed decay. It seals and hardens quickly for the next step of either a wood patch or epoxy depending on the size of the repair area.
