COVERAGE:  One gallon covers approximately 350-400 sq ft depending on porosity and condition of the wood.

Use PermaBond with very worn or distressed wood prior to resurfacing with Deck Revive or Dock Revive.  Priming poorly maintained wood with this bonding agent will enhance adhesion.  It can be tinted to match the final resurfacing product used and to provide color between boards.

  • acrylic-based, VOC-free polymer
  • applies with brush, roller or sprayer
  • tools clean up with water

PermaBond was developed for very worn deck, dock, and concrete surfaces.  As a bonding agent, PermaBond offers that extra bit of insurance against some of the unknowns that distressed wood or concrete may have been exposed to.  Poorly maintained wood can have a petrified look over time, making it difficult for many products to bond to the wood.

PermaBound is an acrylic-based polymer, specially formulated to penetrate and lock into wood fibers and concrete surfaces providing a strong molecular bond for Deck Revive, Dock Revive and Concrete Revive.   We encourage the use of this product if you should have any doubts about the condition of your wood or concrete surface.  Priming with PermaBond will ensure bondability with most subsurface applications.

PermaBound can be tinted the same color as the final Deck, Dock, or Concrete resurfacing product you use from Gulf Synthetics.   This helps achieve color matching between the spaces of the deck boards.  The product can be sprayed, brushed or rolled on and tools clean up easily with water.

We used this about two years ago, and it's been great! We haven't had one little patch come off yet. The Deck Revive/Perma Bond combo has been awesome. It's more expensive, but you'll make your money back in all the saved labor when you only have to seal your deck once. Follow directions, do it right the first time, and you'll save yourself a lot of time and money. Note: I did NOT receive any free/discounted product for this review. It's hard to find information about this product, so i wanted to post this review to help others looking for a quality deck sealer.

    My deck was painted with 2 coats of deck revive 4+ years ago. At that time some cracks and gaps in the top rail were filled with plastic wood and/or caulking. I plan to add 1 coat of deck revive, tinted the same color as before, to all of the flat surfaces. Before doing so, I will power wash and plan to clean out and fill the former gaps with permanent fill. The plan is: power wash, wait minimum of 48 hours to dry, fill gaps with permanent fill, paint with deck revive. How long do I have to wait between filling the gaps and applying deck revive? Will the perm fill take on the same color as the tinted deck revive?

      You have to use the Permabond prior to both adding the Permafill and the Deck Revive. You apply the coatings as soon as the prior is dry.

    Can PermaBond be used as a primer for outdoor concrete paint as well as the Revive products? I want to paint stone slabs on the top of a patio retaining wall and thought PermaBond might be a good primer. (I haven't ruled out using ConcreteRevive on this surface but may just want paint since it would be smoother).

    Similar to Rich below, but using Fir (kiln dried, HT, No 2, nominal 2"x12") for my exterior stair treads. I live in the pacific northwest. I stored the wood for 6 months in my dry heated basement. I will be painting all sides before installation. Fasteners will be on bottom face only. I plan to paint using Benjamin Moore Products … Arborcoat Oil primer and top coat with Floor & Porch Latex Enamel.
    I have already removed the "mill glaze". I was intending to add my paintable WRP (Water Repellant Preservative) next.
    The folks at Deckstainhelp.com recommended your Permafil product to fill knot holes. I was also intending to use it for cracks.
    Does Permafil cure hard or flexible?
    Can Permafil be top coated with oil based primer?
    When do you advise using Permafil... before or after applying WRP?

    I am building an exterior staircase with just four steps using new, non-treated, 5/4 southern yellow pine treads. I will be painting all sides of the treads for maximum rot resistance. I'm looking for an extremely durable paint which will offer long-term protection that will hold up in our harsh conditions here in Vermont. I saw your product at a builders conference and was very impressed. What do you think of using the Deck Revive 1/4 kit for this application?

      Yes, it will work very well for a staircase.

        Thanks for your quick follow up. Do I need to prime with Perma Bond, even though it's new wood? Do I need to wait until the wood weathers for several months, or can I just sand with 120 grit to remove any milling sheen then apply two coats of Deck Revive?

          Gulf Synthetics · 03/05/2020
          You always have to use the Permabond first. Wait for a few months and then pressure wash for prep. Do not sand.

            As I think about it, I'm not sure this would be a feasible plan. The SYP treads I'm looking to use are not treated and our conditions are very wet here in Vermont. The treads will almost certainly cup or warp after being left untreated for a few months. Plus, I would have to remove them when it's time to paint them in order to be able to do the underside, which is critical with non-treated lumber. I can certainly unscrew them, but that usually results in splintering. My hope was to be able to finish the boards (on all sides), install them, then apply one final coat on top.

              Why are you using non-pressure treated SYP lumber in an outdoor application? Cedar, redwood, IPE yes(maybe), but SYP external life span without it will fail in short order, that is why it gets pressure treated for the great outdoors, so it lasts. Stains and paints "aid" in the appearance and offer some added durability but are not swap out substitutes for pressure treated SYP.

    I applied everything the way you said to (Deck Revive over Permabond) on new pressure washed cedar but it has peeled, about a 2" diameter spot. I still have some Permabond left from 2 years ago sealed in a container. Can I reapply it to use with Deck Revive or do I need to by more new Permabond?

      It should be okay as long as it has not frozen in the last two years.

    I have a 500sq ft deck in poor shape. I have purchased (2) Permabond, (3) Permafill, and (3) DeckRevive. I see you should prep spots under the Permafill with the bond, that dry time is about 60min for the bond, and you should apply the Deckrevive asap after the bond is dry. A significant portion of my deck will need varying degrees of Permafill, so I want to apply the bond to the entire deck then fill in the cracks and knots etc. Also, because my deck is so bad and pourous, I plan to put the quart of paint in with the bond.<br><br>I guess I'm just trying to understand 1) how long will it take for the Permafill to dry? 2)Do I have to coat the fill with the bond again before the revive? 3)This seems like a lot to get accomplished "immediately" after the bond is dry. Any pointers in how to get all of this accomplished timing wise?

    I completed install of permabond and before starting the install of Deck Revive was called away on an emergency. Can I assume its ok to put on another coat of permabond on top of the 3 day old previous coat? Do I need to add another coat at all? Thankyou

    I know you say you don't have to tint the PermaBond, but I want to, since my deck is very porous. What product do I add to tint the PermaBond? The same acrylic glossy outdoor paint that I'm adding to the Deck Revive? And what size? A quart added to a gallon of PermaBond? Thanks for your clarification.

    My deck currently has Rustoleum Deck &amp; concrete on it. It is peeling in many places. Is there any problem applying your product over their product? I plan to pressure wash the deck to remove any loose and flaking areas.

      Gulf Synthetics · 08/17/2018
      Applying the Deck Revive on top of the Rustoleum will not fix the underlying issues that the Rustoleum has with continual peeling. You should remove the Rustoleum first.

      The Permabond is designed for the use of Deck/Dock Revive products and not other brands.

    Hi- How do I color the perma bond? Would a paint store add the color even though I am buying it from you? And do they add the same thing/amount that they add to the gallon for in the deck revive? Thanks

    Michael · 07/01/2017
    Can you put the kit and the 1/4 kit together during the initial mixing to ensure they have the exact matching color?<br>
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 07/02/2017
      Best to do them separately. The color should not be an issue as long as the gloss acrylic paint is the same color for the gallon and quart.

    I am redoing a deck that also has benches with supports. I plan to do the tops of the benches with both Perma Bond and then Deck Revive. The support boards are in good shape (out of the weather) and so I plan to just paint them the same color with outdoor latex. Should I, or can I, use the Perma Bond on these boards under the regular latex, or should I make sure that the Perma Bond does not get on the surfaces I intend just to paint.<br>Thanks!

      Just use the Permabond where you plan to use the Deck Revive.&nbsp;

    I already used a paint and stain stripper from home depot. Can I still use the Deck Revive Kit? as I noticed that your instructions state that one should not use a deck cleaner/brightener. Your thoughts?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 06/20/2017
      You can but you will need to make sure the wood is thoroughly&nbsp;rinsed well with water. It would be best to do a light pressure wash with water only and let dry for 48 hours before suing the Permabond and Deck Revive.

    We used Perma-Bond, then Perma-Fill, then Deck-Revive, it looks great, but we ran out of the Deck-Revive paint before finishing the railings. Im going to order another 1/4 Kit of Deck-Revive. Do I need to order and re-apply the Perma-Bond to the parts that didnt get the initial coat of Deck-Revive (they did get a coat of Perma-Bond already but it will probably rain before next weekend). What about going back over the parts that did get the first coat (giving them a second coat a week later), do I need to re-apply Perma-Bond to them or just go over with the Deck-Revive?

    If I want to tint the bonder to get better color matching on a worn deck, how much paint to bonder do I mix? My deck is 300 square feet so I am going with two kits, one bonder and one filler to make sure I get all the railings and pickets done as well.

      No need to tint the PermaBond. Just the Deck Revive kits is all you need.

    we have a treehouse/deck just over a year since we built it. We chose Thompson's water seal/stain, and less than a year parts of it are coming off and looks like it has some mildew. Do we have to remove that product first or can we just clean it and use deck revive over it?<br>

      Gulf Synthetics · 04/14/2017
      You will have to pressure wash with water to remove as much as you can that is peeling. You can leave the&nbsp;old stain that is still intact and not peeling. Prime with the Permabond and then the Deck Revive.

    I have a new deck that has not been stained/sealed yet. I'm wanting to put my hot tub on the deck. Would you advise using the Deck Revive and Perma Bond just under the section where the tub will sit? Would it provide any better protection than regular sealer/stain?

      No. It is best to do the same day. The PermaBond is easy t apply and dries fast. Typically in 30-60 minutes.

    Have a 2 level, 690 sq. ft. deck, approximately 15 years old, pressure treated wood. Was covered with a composite plastic? like covering on all the floors, (product is no longer sold as it warped terribly). It was removed several years ago. The deck has since been treated with Thompsons Water Seal, 2 years later with a semi-transparent deck stain, 2 years later we tried a solid color stain. Nothing has helped, it just keeps getting worse. I cannot afford to replace it all. Floor boards are dried looking, some are split. I can replace the really bad boards, but will your products save my deck? How much do I need? My grandsons are willing to help me with the work, but I'm not sure how much to purchase.<br>
