RESINOL 90C – from Loctite

Resinol is typically used by hobbyists for home stabilization, though it does require the purchase of a fair bit of equipment. Its cost is $400.00 for 4gallons and is used with a vacuum pressure chamber which can be very expensive (up to $10,000.00 for a professional system).  I also found a lot of great information on the knife forums about the Resinol 90C (the one in particular that comes to mind is www.bladeforums.com) The finished product is quite a bit harder to work and more brittle than professional stabilizing due to the much higher curing temperatures needed.

NOTE: If you are contemplating trying out the above products, please be sure to follow the manufacturers directions and safety precautions.
