Re: Promising Product for waterproofing wood
- I understand you where talking about green wood not green product.
Green wood is poor for boat building and products that are preshered
into wood like wood treated for outdoor decks don't work eather. This
was a product to replace chems used to presher treat as in a green
product. Many many products have come and gone trying to protect
decks and outdoor wood items that don't work well on boats or live up
to what they say. With all the litigation that went on with breast
implants and silicon the odds of some one hitting a small company and
putting it under are high. Invest with caution and do side by side
epoxy glue tests boiling freezing and breaking before even thinking
of useing in a boat. Another test with dry wood is to coat it let dry
weigh it when submerge for a week and see how much weight it gains in
water. Again water proof is different then water resistant. Just some
other food for thought.
