  • Formulation: Two-part penetrating epoxy sealer
  • Recommended Usage: Inject into dry-rotted wood, wood deck or hull cores

  • Color: Clear amber

Comments about Git Rot Penetrating Epoxy:

Obviously replacement of the damaged wood would be preferable, if possible. But, many times a small area of rot can be more easily repaired. Mixed thoroughly, allowed to penetrate the area for repair and given time to cure, Git Rot will do the job. Once cured, the area can be filled (I've used Marine Tex many times) sanded and refinished for a very decent quality repair.

Comments about Git Rot Penetrating Epoxy:

I have found this product stops the rot and gives you a good base to put some type of filler in. It made the wood as strong, if not stronger than the original. I have used it on window sills and trim in my house also. Treat with git rot, fill with fiberglass filler, sand and paint and you would never know it was repaired. I am presuming the person that said it did not work at all did not follow the directions on use or did not get the product into the rotten wood well enough. There are a number of steps and you do have to let things dry inbetween but I think this is a fantastic product as long as there is enough wood left for the epoxy to soak into.
