Home Stabilizing resin has been slow to evolve. We have pushed the science forward and produced the best tool for you to use in your own stabilizing needs. No need to send your blanks off to someone else to stabilize, now you can achieve better results yourself. SOS 3.0 is a heat cure stabilization resin for impregnating wood and other porous materials.

Don't forget to check out: the SOS FAQ and the Information Bolg!

  • Soap and water cleanup - safe to clean your chamber and containers in your kitchen sink.
  • Eco friendly non-toxic Hardens soft and punky wood Protects wood from movement due to water and changes in humidity.
  • Works great with all the same dye you've been using for stabilized/dyed wood.
  • For best results, use Shed Life's Wood Dyes.
  • Penetrates faster
  • Increased resin clarity (it will still likely increase contrast and color, similar to applying a finish, on some woods)
  • Works with most finishes*

Wood is always gaining or losing moisture which puts it at risk of cracking or damage. Stabilized wood and other materials can last for generations. SOS 3.0 can make your products the best, most durable and most desired by virtually eliminating this natural weakness.  We push the innovation and chemistry to maximize your results and make it a much easier so you can focus on what you enjoy most. If you want to produce the best possible product for your customers, we are here for you. From our laboratory to answering your questions, we do everything we can to help you achieve the best possible results in your own shop. SOS (pronounced sauce) is the "secret SOS" you need to rescue your wood. The proprietary formula used exclusively by Shed Life for stabilization services is now available to you. Get yours today and start discovering the magic of SOS yourself. No need to change anything; if you've been stabilizing wood in a vacuum chamber with another resin, you're already familiar with the process. 12 month shelf life if stored in 75 degrees or lower and out of direct sunlight! Use of more than 1oz/gal of Alumilite dye is not recommended. Too much will not improve your results and could over activate your resin. Use of aniline dye may affect cure times. It may be necessary to cure at 220F and may take a bit longer than usual. Stabilization is a process. Resin is just one part of the process. If your results are not as desired, get in touch with us. There may be other issues or ways to improve your results.

*Big box polyurethane finish does not always work well. For a polyurethane, we recomend Craft Coat as an alternative. Blanks must be fully cured and (for best results) given about 24 hours to fully set or some lacquer may not fully cure. Once completely cured, Craft Coat finish, your favorite oil rubs, friction polish, shellac, lacquer, epoxy, urethane resins, polyester resins and many others work quite well.

If kept in appropriate conditions (listed on the label for reference), under 75F and out of direct sunlight, we guarantee SOS Resin for 1 year from date of purchase. Contact us with any issues and we will help test, boost or replace your resin if it fails to perform properly within that year.

    Works very well, penetrates deeply, and the low foaming is a great improvement.

    A really great product. The wood stabalized with 3.0 turns like wood not plastic. Also, this is a great company to do business with.

    Best stabilizing resin I've ever used

    Posted by Tyler Vickers on Feb 4th 2021

    Sos 3.0 is really really good. Easy to use and clean up. It doesn't froth and spill over like crazy. When I first got it I did head to head tests with CJ and SOS 3.0 made my wood stronger and had less tear out. Highly recommend.
