Polycryl wood stabiliser

Polycryl  is a non-toxic, large molecular weight acrylic polymer that will fill and strengthen soft, semipunky or spalted wood. It will not yellow or discolor the wood. Polycryl is ideal for strengthening the soft areas of wood so that it can be turned, carved or worked with. It is water-soluble and penetrates best when the wood is green. Easy and safe to use with soap and water clean up. Polycryl wood fortifier can be brushed on or soaked in a Polycryl solution. All types of finishes and glues can be used once Polycryl wood fortifier has dried into the wood.

Note: Polycryl may not fortify extremely punky wood and it will not penetrate hard wood. It can be used to strengthen the soft areas of wood prior to using Pentacryl to stabilize the rest of the wood.

Directions: If possible, the wood should be rough carved, planed or turned first. By removing wood that you will not be using, material will not be wasted and there will be less wood that the Polycryl will need to penetrate through. Start with adding 1 part Polycryl to 4 parts hot tap water and mix well. It is important to start with a diluted solution first to obtain maximum penetration.

  • Fills and strengthens soft or spalted wood, which might not otherwise turn.
  • Enables stunning pieces to be created.
  • Dries clear.
  • Water soluble.
  • Made in USA.
