Phenosealing Pouch Wells
By Craig Brougher

Dean Randall was asking about using Phenoseal in pouch wells which
seemed to stay tacky. Phenoseal is a sealer for concrete and stone,
mainly. If it remained tacky for long, it wouldn't be a very good sealer
for that purpose, I wouldn't think.

I don't know why his sample is tacky. Maybe it hasn't had long enough
to dry, but that is unusual. I always use it to seal Ampico valve blocks
(among other things that are fully exposed), and I can't leave a
thumbprint on them 20 minutes after I've sealed them, so I really can't
answer that one. It should dry completely. However, talcum powder won't
hurt a thing. I don't know if you got an old batch or if that would
affect it-- I doubt it. If it isn't setting up and drying totally in a
day or two, I'd mention it to PPC, but it's probably something in the
wood that is slowing its dry time-- like moisture.
