View Full Version : Sealing Plywood Edges

What is better CEPS or Gluvit for sealing edges of 43 year old plywood from my 1960 Cruisers Inc. 202.

Will an opinion based on preconcieved misconceptions do?
CPES does not have enough substance to do the job alone. I've not used Glovit but my impression is that it is similar to CPES. My choice would be System Three Epoxy warmed because that is what I have on hand. The brand probably does not matter but MAS is less viscous and might penetrate better while still forming a substantial barrier. Some will advocate CPES under epoxy but I think epoxy alone will do just as well.

I have used Glovit on decks ever since the mid 70's. The deck's NEVER leaked from that moment on. As for edge sealing, I supose it would do just fine, but if at all possible, I would cover the edge with solid wood first, then apply the Glovit.
Edit ... Glovit does not like sharp corners, inside or outside, so radius them.
