In a message dated 9/27/2007 12:38:18 PM Pacific Daylight Time,
I have used all sorts of epoxies for all sorts of wood
strengthening, repair & retrofit.
Most has been non-structural but
I've messed around with some structural stuff as well.
used Wood Epox & Liquid Wood from www.abatron.com. I started using
their products 20+ years ago.
In addition to the Abatron products
recently (in the last 5 years) I have started using SIKA products.
easier to get since Whitecap (in SoCal) stocks it & can special order
stuff they don't stock.
Sikadur 31 & 35 as well as their epxoy
injection gel which I believe lists truss repair as an application. My
use may have been "off label" but I had the luxury of building prototypes
& testing them.
SIKA has a lot of products so I would suggest you
contact your local SIKA rep, the SoCal rep that I have had contact with is
very helpful & knows their product line well.
You could give their
tech people a call as well.

Hello again, engineering friends.
What is the best suited EPOXY to use in Wood Repair (cracked DFL beam)
in "combination" with bolts holding it together.
