Epoxy Resin viscosity – Low V.S High Viscosity

We see a lot of people using high viscosity epoxy to fill cracks, voids and knots or even to seal live edge when they should be using a low viscosity epoxy instead.

First of all a high Viscosity epoxy will not release bubbles so easily causing you to use a torch or heat gun to get rid of those.

High viscosity epoxy will not penetratre the wood fibers/cavities as well as a low viscosity epoxy solition giving a poor structural bonding.

When it comes to wood projects, filling cracks or sealing live edge, Low Viscosity epoxy should be a no brainer.
