WEST System 105 Epoxy Resin : We have a wood playhouse door that has rotted after it was sealed with marina sealer varnish. We are replacing the door and wondering if this product would work better to prevent this problem?????? Thanks!

Yes, I should think it will work very well. Two coats of nonthickened epoxy need to be covered with varnish or paint to prevent UV damage. I always use the slow cure. I used it recently to repair a window frame that caught the wind and spintered. I really like it.

Another excellent solution is to use our TotalBoat 2:1 2-part Penetrating Epoxy. It's low viscosity, you can roll in on and it soaks into the wood and seals it. You can thin it a little bit for better penetration (not too much!) and be sure to mix it well and then a little more. It soaks in deeply; after it cures, fair and paint the door with TotalBoat primer and then a good paint.
