Rustins Wood Hardener is a premier product in the market, designed to help repair damaged, rotten or decayed wood. The Wood Hardener works by deeply penetrating the affected wood area, sealing and reinforcing it from within to provide increased life and durability. Once dry, this allows you to use a wood filler to further re-in-force and provide a seal against further moisture penetration. Rustins Wood Hardener is suitable for interior or exterior use, so whether you’re dealing with rotting or deteriorating furniture, fencing, gates, this is the vital tool that will produce optimal results and extend the life of your wood.
Remove any loose, decayed or very soft wood until a there is a fairly sound base to treat. The wood should be fairly dry and free from grease, dirt or oil. Shake well before use and apply liberally with a brush, completely saturating the wood. Allow each coat to absorb into the wood and re-apply. Do this as a continuous process for maximum penetration of the wood. Leave a minimum of 5 minutes between coats. Continue with repeated process until a surface film is formed. Allow a minimum of 3 hours to dry before applying a Wood Filler.
