Tony-

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. 

I have 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.
SIKA is 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.

cheers
Bob

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