Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Wood Juice
“The Dry Wood Stabilizer”
Wood Juice is a compound of modified polymers. It is formulated to penetrate and stabilize dry to semi-dry wood.
Wood Juice works by completely saturating the wood and displacing the remaining water. Once the wood dries, the Wood Juice leaves a thin coating on the cell walls of the wood. This process keeps the cells from shrinking, which reduces future cracking, checking and irregular drying. Shrinkage is reduced up to 600% depending on the orientation of the wood grain and how dry the wood is prior to treating with Wood Juice.
Wood Juice is non-toxic, non-hazardous, does not contain silicone, will not discolor the wood, is non-hygroscopic (meaning it will not retain water), will not oxidize, decompose or migrate in the wood when exposed to different degrees of temperature and relative humidity. It also contains a UV protectant.
Wood Juice can be brushed on or the wood can be immersed (soaked) in Wood Juice (do not dilute). Although soaking is the preferred method, excellent results are still obtained by using the brushing method.
