Default Mejzlik prop repair

I hit something on the ground and clipped the tips on my 28x10 prop. It frayed about 1/4" of the tips, and I was able to sand them smooth and reshape them, what can I use to ensure the fibers are tight and can use this prop? I dont see any other damage other than the tips. The balance on it is fine too.

Thin ca...penetrates better than epoxy and coats every filament that's exposed

Done, looks good as new now, some polishing and I dont think anyone would know.
