Both E-Wood® and M-Balm® and are two component epoxies that are used for repairing soft spots, rot pockets and other types of defects in logs and timbers.

Although they can be used individually, they are typically applied as a pair with each product playing a specific role.

M-Balm
When the A and B components of M-Balm are mixed together, they form a low viscosity liquid. In other words, it is not much thicker than water. The purpose for this low viscosity is to allow the product to soak into wood fibers. After about 15 to 20 minutes, the liquid M-Balm will begin to harden and once hard, any loose, friable wood fibers will be consolidated into a solid mass. One limitation of M-Balm is that the wood must be very dry, 15% moisture content or less, for the M-Balm to be able to soak into the wood.

Note: When repairing wood that has been damaged by decay fungi, we recommend that the area first be treated with Shell-Guard® RTU to eradicate any decay fungi that may still be alive and to prevent any future infestations from reoccurring. The Shell-Guard RTU solution may be applied while the area is still wet or moist but it is still important that the wood be allowed to dry before applying M-Balm.

E-Wood

E-Wood is a two-component epoxy putty that can be used to fill holes or voids in wood. E-Wood should not be used to fill checks or gaps between logs since once it cures, it has no flexibility; any movement will cause it to pull away from the wood. E-Wood is somewhat challenging to mix together, since both components are thick and putty-like. Equal amounts of both A and B components must be kneaded together by hand until the color is uniform throughout the mass.

Up to two (2) ounces of Lifeline™ stains can be added to 24 ounces (12 ounces of component A and 12 ounces of component B) of blended E-Wood to aid in the hiding of the repair.

Once it is thoroughly mixed, it can then be pressed into the void and shaped to match the contour of the surface. If desired a texture or pattern may be worked into the surface of the uncured E-Wood to help it blend in with the surrounding wood.

Stain can be applied to the surface of the E-Wood either before or after it has cured. E-Wood will begin to harden in about an hour or two, so you have more time to work with it than you do with M-Balm. Being an epoxy, no shrinkage will occur once the E-Wood is in place.

E-Wood Paste

E-Wood paste epoxy works excellent on window trims, small checks on log ends and other places where putty may be difficult to apply. As with any other epoxy, both the consolidator and wood filler consist of two parts, the resin (part A) and the hardener (part B). Mixing the two parts according to the manufacturer’s instructions starts a chemical reaction that causes the epoxy to harden.

Combine equal parts of E-Wood Paste by volume (A&B) and mix together by kneading or with a spatula until the color is uniform while wearing disposable gloves, mix no more than can be applied in 15 minutes.

Allow product to cure before sanding and staining.

E-Wood Paste is great for non-structural applications such as window frames and sills, doors and decorative wooden trim.

Comes with easy to mix applicator tube and nozzles.
