Prepare the surface by removing all rotten and decayed wood, preparing the area to receive the repair to sound timber.
The use of mechanical hand tools is sometimes suffice but electrical hand tools are very effective, the Metabo Mini Profi with an appropriate cutter bit is highly recommended for this part. It's also crucial to ensure there's no moisture left in the surface.
Mix the appropiate Dry Fix Wood Stabiliser / Primer with the handy Mix & Fix cup & stick and simply apply using a small priming brush to the area to receive the resin. Leave the Dry Fix to penetrate and stabilise the surface for 20 mins.
Using either the HD Metal or Lightweight Plastic dedicated dosing guns (to ensure a perfect ratio from part A & part B) dispense the appropriate Dry Flex resin onto the non-stick mixing plate and mix thoroughly, then apply to the area generously, shape and cut with either the Easy Q metal spatulas / application knives or the Easy Q plastic spatulas / application knives, then leave to cure as per the hour system used.
