Woodpecker Repair

OsmoWeld® and AquaWrap™ products are designed to repair woodpecker holes and other damage that results in a void to utility poles, including decayed and splitting tops.  OsmoWeld bonds to wood without shrinking or cracking and returns strength to the damaged section of the pole.  The epoxy formulas of both OsmoWeld® MPF™ and OsmoWeld® LV™ are designed to flow easily and completely fill the void which is vital in preventing the return behavior of woodpeckers.  Both products utilize the KwikMixx cartridge system.  The KwikMixx cartidge provides even mixing by forcing the two components of the epoxy formula through a common mixing nozzle, automatically proportioning and combining them for fast, accurate application.

OsmoWeld® MPF

OsmoWeld MPF (multi-purpose filler) was designed to cure at lower temperatures than other systems, making it the ideal choice for large voids that require greater quantities of filler.

MPF KwikMixx cartridges come in two sizes, 600 ml and 1500 ml, for small or large repairs. The 600 ml cartridges fill approximately 36 cubic inches of void, and the 1500 ml cartridges fill approximately 90 cubic inches. Osmose offers power installation guns designed for easy, fast installation using the KwikMixx cartridges.  Treated wood dowels are also available to assist with filling large voids.

PowerPush 7000 - Power Dispenser for MPF

Power dispensers are available in two sizes; 600ml and 1500ml.  Each power dispenser kit contains one PowerPush 7000, one AC or DC charger, two rechargeable batteries, and one carry-strap.

OsmoWeld® LV

OsmoWeld LV was designed with a low viscosity formula which allows it to be applied without the use of a power dispenser.  Only a dual chambered caulking gun (compatible with the KwikMixx cartridge) is required.  OsmoWeld LV is recommended for use on small voids that do not require large quantities of filler.  CA Residents: Proposition 65
