SculpWood Putty is a two-component, solvent-free, kneadable epoxy. It is moldable, carvable, lightweight, strong, and exhibits excellent adhesion to a variety of substrates. It is easily sanded and will accept paint, screws and nails.
SculpWood Putty is a one of four components making up the EndRot system. It’s a nonshrinking, two-part epoxy putty compound ideal for filling voids often associated with rot repair applications. When cured, it sands like wood and machines easily. It has tenacious adhesion to wood substrates when paired with System Three RotFix epoxy. SculpWood Putty is compatible with most water/solvent-based primers and paints.

What is the EndRot System?
The EndRot System is a group of products developed for use in the repair of architectural wood components that have been damaged by rot fungus, insects, extreme weathering and abuse. Each product in the EndRot System can be used separately. When used together they are a complete and permanent solution for repairing damaged wood. When repaired with the EndRot System, wood is as good as new, ready to prime and paint.
Apply RotFix penetrating epoxy within 5-10 minutes of mixing in order to seal the wood.
Brush a generous coat of RotFix over the affected area. Some wood substrates are very porous and will absorb the RotFix rapidly. A second coat may be necessary. More epoxy can be applied over wet or tacky RotFix.
We developed The EndRot Kit as an easy way to purchase everything needed to perform a typical small repair all in one box. The kit includes: Borate Powder, RotFix, SculpWood Putty, and SculpWood Paste. Use the kit to restore window and door casings, porch posts, balusters etc.
SculpWood Putty can be applied over the RotFix immediately, or up to 72 hours later without sanding. A wet-on-wet application of the SculpWood to the RotFix is encouraged to obtain a strong bond. There is, however, no detriment to applying the SculpWood later in time. If the RotFix has cured longer than 72 hours, degloss the surface with sandpaper or a soft, flexible abrasive pad. Apply fresh RotFix, followed by the SculpWood putty.
SculpWood Putty is designed to work with RotFix penetrating epoxy. The putty sticks readily to the RotFix primed surface. This combination of products provides a permanent bond with the wood substrate. However, in some instances, RotFix may not be available and the SculpWood Putty will need to be used as a standalone product.
The putty will have difficulty sticking to smooth bare wood surfaces. An effective way to get the putty to stick is to take a small amount of the mixed SculpWood and scrub/work it into the wood substrate, thus priming the surface. Once this is done, press the remaining putty onto the (SculpWood) primed surface.
Yes, first drill a slightly undersized pilot hole for best results.
