Consolidating rotten wood
System Three Resins, a company known for its marine adhesives and coatings, is located in the Pacific Northwest, which everyone knows is famous for it’s damp conditions.This can lead to moisture damage to any wood that is used outdoors.Report the presence of wood rot is the #1 issue we find during our inspections.Most homes that are 10 years or older will have some form of “rot”. When a tree is still alive water is its best friend, but after we turn that tree into lumber, water is the last thing it needs. Then you have rotted wood and know the frustration and worries it can cause.It also needs a food source (the wood itself), a temperature range between about 40 and 90 degrees and oxygen.
We wanted to test the CPES against other epoxy products that are advertised to penetrate rotted wood or act as wood consolidants.
They provide superior performance to any polyester based system.
Products like them have been used in marine applications for over 30 years.
Its just a simple fact in the Pacific NW that anywhere that water can sit, wood rot will occur.
The true dry rot fungus, Serpula lacrymans, is often regarded as the “cancer” of a building.
