All Things Pentacryl
FAQ’s… You asked – We answer!
A sampling of questions we receive every day about our popular PENTACRYL product. Pentacryl is a green wood stabilizer that prevents cracking and checking in fresh-cut wood as it dries.
Q: Does the odor of Pentacryl remain in the wood after the wood has dried?
A: 95% of the odor will dissipate. The time it takes depends upon the type of wood, size, and the length of time it takes for the wood to completely dry.
Q: Will Pentacryl keep the bark on?
A: It will help. Since Pentacryl will reduce the shrinkage of the wood it will help to keep the wood from pulling away from the bark, however, there is no guarantee that the bark will stay on. For best results to keep bark on, the tree should be cut during the dormant period (winter) when the sap stops running and the wood has hardened off.
