Smith's Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer (CPES) is a two part epoxy that is used for sealing and
stabilizing wood. It forms a semi-permeable membrane that slows absorption.Yet allows evaporation if water absorption happens. It is especially
good for use as a sealer of a new bottom (apply two coats) before it is bedded in 3M 5200. For a complete explanation of this process,we recommend the book "How To Restore Your Wooden Runabout"
by Don Danenburg.
