Originally developed for treating waterlogged timber, Preservation Solutions™ Pentacryl Wood Stabilizer prevents cracking by displacing water and moisture in the wood fiber. By immersing unseasoned wood in Pentacryl for the recommended length of time, drying time for green timber can be reduced by 90% while eliminating cracking and splitting. Pentacryl will not discolor the wood, is not hydroscopic and will not oxidize, decompose or migrate in the wood when exposed to different degrees of temperature or humidity. It accepts most types of finishes and can be stained and glued. How much do I need? The average wet 6" x 6" x 2" bowl blank absorbs approximately 2 oz. of Pentacryl. Instructions included.
