Delaminated plywood

I just found a great way to fix delaminated plywood veneer. I went to my local farm and feed store and bought half a dozen big syringes and tips for about a buck each and injected low viscosity epoxy (Git Rot) into the blisters. I used an ordinary construction stapler to punch the blister down flat. A rag soaked in vinegar kept the ozzing wiped up and the whole job went like a dream! It is so seldom that things go the way they are supposed to that I just had to share this one!

Tis an old trick, but I would suggest getting the staples out.

I have done repairs to decks that had lots of small rot spots caused by................Rusty staples.

It's an old trick, but not really a structural "fix".
Use Monel staples, for upholstery etc..

These are more what I was thinking


PLASTIC STAPLES

Quote:

UTILITY COMPOSITES INTL, LTD manufactures and sells RAPTOR® engineered polymer nails and staples. RAPTOR® nails and staples are patented fasteners that are rapidly becoming one of the hottest products for all types of wooden attachments. They are high strength polymer composite nails and staples (completely non-metal) for pneumatic nailers, and pneumatic and manual staplers
Raptor Nails and Staples - UCI Raptor

Much easier on the powertools

Cool! The Raptor plastic fastenings are "new" to me.

wish I'd known about them when I was strip planking my little canoe. I reckon they would increase the longevity of any timber outside.

Drive the staples through fiber-reinforced wrapping tape to pull them out before the resin cures.

The epoxy fix is intended as a cosmetic repair to delaminated veneer such as doors, and interior cabin finish. I sort of thought it went without saying that one would pull the staples once the epoxy set up.
I do like sandy daugherty's suggestion of stapling through the fibre reinforced tape and would give that a try if and when I do this next time.
