Hardener? Used at Mirai

Does anyone know the name of the hardener Ryan uses at Mirai? I know he has mentioned it but I can’t recall. Thanks

It’s called CPES- Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer. - https://live.bonsaimirai.com/archive/video/hardening-deadwood


Thank you Kendall, Your the best

Smith’s CPES is very good for hardening off wood. Just be sure you’ve got the wood to the color you like. You cannot change the color later.

I have heard, but have not tested, that Smith’s CPES is just an expensive way to buy epoxy that has been diluted with denatured alcohol. So I bought both. :wink: It must be time to test… now where’d I put that teak oil?
