It has structural strength greater than most wood. This epoxy is made from real wood and has many characteristics of wood. PC-Woody formulation provides extended working time, for large and critical jobs, which allows the user time to reposition work or make changes. High wet grab or tack of PC-Woody makes overhead and sidewall work easy without drip or sag. PC- Woody demonstrates excellent resistance to all weather elements, mildew dry rot, UV light, fresh and salt water, and also chemicals present in pressure-treated wood. Bonds most everything to anything. ***Note: PC-Woody will not bond to wax paper, Teflon, Polyethylene, and some other plastics. There are hundreds of plastics in thousands of combination. Test a small area when in doubt.

Mixing Tips:
In cold or cool temperatures, place PC-Woody containers near heat prior to using. PC-Woody mixes and spreads easier at 80 deg.F than at 40 deg.F. Any clean smooth flat surface is an excellent surface for mixing and working. A small putty knife or flexible artist spatula are great tools for mixing and applying PC-Woody.

Denatured alcohol is excellent for smoothing applied PC-Woody. Also use Denatured alcohol to clean surfaces before applying.

***Note: Most epoxies are temperature sensitive and will cure faster at higher temperatures and slower at cooler temperatures. Speed cure with artificial heat.

Directions:
Using separate knives to remove amount needed, mix equal parts A (off white) and B (light brown) on a flat clean surface until a uniform color is achieved. Surfaces to be bonded must be free of dirt, oil, rust, etc. For best results, rough up the surface PC-Woody will be bonding to. Normally, no vice or clamp is needed. Prop or tape heavy objects to a wall or ceiling.

Applications: Apply PC-Woody in any thickness to both sides of surface and bring together firmly. Be careful to insure that ample amount of PC-Woody remains between the contact surfaces. Use screen wire or fiberglass cloth to reinforce large voids and gaps.

Denatured alcohol or laquer is excellent for cleaning surfaces and for smoothing and molding epoxy prior to cure. For best results allow 15 to 20 minutes of standing time after mixing before shaping and molding.

After cure: Allow epoxy to cure for 12 to 24 hours. Paint, Stain, Drill, Machine, Sand, File, Tap, or Saw. Premature sanding will gum up sandpaper. Always sand with wood grain. Use medium or coarse sandpaper to achieve best staining results.
Pilot holes will be very helpful to set nails and screws in cured epoxy. Paint over hardened epoxy at any time.

PC-Woody has hundreds if not thousands of uses.

Pigments come in three forms: powder, paste, and liquid.
  • Powder pigments are by far the pigment type of choice. Powder pigment is preferred because less is needed to reach desired color.
  • Paste pigments are an option if powders are not available. With paste pigments bold colors may not be achieved. DO NOT exceed more than 5% volume of combined A (off white) and B (light brown). More than 5% will affect the integrity of the chemical properties of PC-Woody and is not recommended.
  • Liquid pigments are not recommended (example food dye).
1. Measure equal amounts of part A (off white) and part B (light brown). 2. Mix the pigment into part A (white) until preferred color is achieved. Exact color matching is difficult and may require assorted pigment colors. 3. Combine part A with part B when the desired color is reached.

Question: How easy is it to stain PC Woody? What is the best stain?

Answer: PC-Woody can be stained, but the type of stain will affect the color of the PC-Woody. The best stains contain pigments. The stain contains pigments if the can has sediment at the bottom of the can. This sediment must be stirred before using the stain. Pigmented stains have more hiding power than other stains. Other stains sometimes contain only dyes. Advice: PC-Woody cures to a light tan color. It does not have the various shading found in real wood. PC-Woody is capable of absorbing some stain but it is not as porous as real wood. By staining PC-Woody, the result is usually a light shade of the stain used.

Before using PC Woody, it is very important to test the final color against the item you're repairing by preparing a small sample and letting it cure. Then, stain the sample. If the stained PC Woody does not produce the desired result, consider pre-tinting the PC Woody with pigment tinting pastes or raw pigment powders. Try some of these steps:

Helpful hints-
  • After PC-Woody has cured, sand by hand with coarse sandpaper (100 -120 grit)
  • Sand with the grain of the wood.
  • Add grain to the repair with staining markers or artists paint brush.
  • Stains such as ZAR, Barkley and McCloskey contain greater quantities of pigment and seem to work well with PC-Woody.
