Pentacryl is a wood stabilizer used by woodcarvers, woodturners and furniture makers to keep green wood from cracking, checking and splitting during the drying process by means of displacing water and moisture in the wood fibers. It will not react with the tannic acids in the wood and will make your wood look cleaner and brighter! Excellent results have been achieved with many types of wood including Eastern White Pine, Basswood, Tupelo, Walnut, Apple Wood, Hawthorne, Cherry, Rock Maple, Soft Maple, Ash, Bamboo and many others.
Pentacryl can be brushed on or for smaller pieces, the wood can be immersed and soaked into a 100% solution. Dyes can be added or the wood can be stained after treatment.
Once the wood is dry, any type of finish and glue can be used on the wood. Pentacryl will not discolor the wood, is non-hygroscopic and will not oxidize, decompose or migrate in the wood when exposed to different degrees of temperature and relative humidity.
