I believe this is the product that we used on the La Quinta Country Club 
that I mentioned in my post. These products not only coated the wood to stop 

the rot, the WoodEpox was a very hard epoxy fill that could be shaped, 
sanded or rasped to repair the damaged wood. When painted, we were unable to 

tell where the repair started or stopped. The most surprising thing with the 

WoodEpox was the weight. It was as light as a pumice stone, yet extrememly 
hard and dried to a very strong compressive strength.
Abatron has suppliers in California (and around the country) and were very 
helpful by sending me some technical data on the product.

PS, Thanks Harold, I had forgotten the product name until I recognized it in 

your post.
