PC-Rot Terminator is structural wood hardener designed to strengthen decayed or rotted wood. The mixture is a low viscosity liquid that penetrates porous surfaces filling and sealing voids with an epoxy that cures to a hard but durable component. PC-Rot Terminator is useful for replacement of missing wood fibers or wood resin. PC-Rot Terminator fills the voids in the wood with an elastomer that has strength greater than wood. PC-Rot Terminator acts as a binder that glues the wood fibers together. The wood fibers become much stronger in combination with the epoxy elastomer. PC-Rot Terminator contains 100 percent active ingredients and does not contain solvents which may evaporate and cause shrinkage. The cure rate in the thicker sections is faster than in the thin sections. The greater the temperature, the faster the cure time. PC-Rot Terminator cure can be accelerated using a light bulb or other gentle heat source. The cure rate is halved for every 20 degree F increase. After cure (roughly 24 hours) fill in missing pieces with PC Woody paste epoxy. One unit of 24 ounces will seal 50 to 100 square feet of deck as a sealer. For severely rotted wood, one unit will treat 500 to 2500 cubic inches. The amount of usage depends on the porosity of wood. Damp wood that is heavy with water will not accept the maximum amount of the mixture. PC-Rot Terminator can not displace water in wood. Work time: 60 minutes. Thin film set: 12 Hours. Cure for service: 24 Hours. Maximum cure: 7 Day. Compressive modulus: 230000 psi. Compressive yield strength: 6500 psi. Tensile strength: 4500 psi. Tensile modulus: 210000 psi. Tensile elongation at break: 12 percent. Flexural strength: 9500 psi. Flexural modulus: 300000 psi. Hardness shored: 78. Mar resistance: 1.05 Kg.

Worth its weight in gold!
By A. Quint
Have now used this for two major repairs. One was to harden the wood on the bases of two structural columns supporting the roof of a front porch, the other was hardening wood on a deep sill of a porthole window in which much of the bottom 20% of the sill had rotted. Much of the wood for both projects was in such bad shape that it sounded hollow when tapped. I drilled multiple holes to permit the Rot Terminator to penetrate those areas. It soaked up amount far greater than the volume needed for the space left by the drilled holes alone. What was interesting was that the amount soaked up differed depending on how close the hole was to solid wood, suggesting that it does, as advertised, penetrate the surrounding areas of softened, rotted wood. Both repairs required filling afterwards with large amounts of putty (I used PC Woody, and it was rock-solid when finished). Using the PC products literally saved us thousands of dollars, as the other alternative was to replace both columns and to order and have installed a custom sill for the porthole window. I can't recommend their products highly enough. A very nice bonus was their customer service department. They spent a great deal of time making sure I understood how to use the products, and why I would choose one over the other. Customer service at its best, and faced with more than one choice I now opt for PC Products whenever possible (I've been pleased with the performance of all the ones I've tried). As for the person who said it didn't harden his wood, it seems to me there are only two possibilities - either he mixed the two parts in wrong proportions, or he wrote his review before the wood had time to harden (depending on the amount used and the weather conditions, I found at times it didn't fully harden for a couple of days)

Returns rotted wood to its strength
By Crystal Jeffers
I purchased this product to treat the old termite and Beatles damage to a supporting wall in my 100 year old home. We discovered the damage when a hole was put in the wall. After removing drywall we uncovered extensive damage to the main 4x4 support. This could have been a costly repair. I immediately started searching for options.
I discovered rot terminator and we decided that this option was the least expensive and could save us thousands of dollars.
After following the directions and applying the liquid to the rotted disintegrated wood we waited about 30 minutes and then attached 2x4s to either side of the stud to give it the extra stability for years to come. After complete drying the 4x4 stud was hard and sturdy just like petrified wood should be. The solution worked into the grains of wood that had been eaten by previous bug invaders. Even with heavy application I only needed one bottle so I have a spare should we discover any other issues during our home remodel.
I purchased this product with no discounts. This review is my honest unbiased opinion based on my experience. I have no affiliation with the company, or it's employees.

Landscape Timbers - Use with Saw Dust
I used this product to fix some rot in pressure treated landscape timbers. Suggest that you mix saw dust with this epoxy - the saw dust gets encapsulated with the epoxy (so it does not rot) - but helps increase the volume so you use less of the material. Product hardened up and looks great.
