FOR WOOD, EDGE, HOLE, KNOT & CRACK PUTTY
1. Fills cracks, knots, holes, splits, blemishes etc. Spread the filler diagonally across the grain in each direction, and then work in it back and forth with the grain. Fill deeper holes approximately 6mm in layers. Make sure you work the filler deep into the hole or crack allowing time for each layer to dry to ensure a strong bond. TIMBERMATE WILL NEVER BLIND THE NATURAL WOOD GRAIN. Drying or curing time is about 1-2 hours depending on temperature and depth of fill. You can speed up drying time by using heat gun, heat lamps, industrial fans, or inside the drying room.
2. TIMBERMATE dries hard and smooth without SHRINKING OR SINKING. It will not crack and fall out. Wood putty should be used but not seen. SEEK THE BEST RESULTS.
3. Can be belt or drum sanded and it not affected by heat. The hotter it gets, the harder and faster is sets, and that means less “Down Time”.
4. Can be applied with any stains or colorants after the application. This may be water, powder, oil, or solvent-based. However, if you want to mix stain prior to application, then use only water-based penetrated dye stains.
5. Inter-mixing of TIMBERMATE colors is possible. Putty must be fully dried to take stain evenly. Putty is still wet when it clogs or blinds the sandpaper.
Add your colorant to the putty and match the exact color while it is wet. TIMBERMATE dry later but coat back to its original wet color once coated with clear finishes.
● TIMBERMATE dries quickly in hot weather. During cold weather, the depth of fill will determine the dryingtime.
● You can easily fix a wrong matched or badly filled holes or cracks by washing out with water. If alreadycoated, then break the top coat and wash it out. Refill or rematch if necessary.
● TIMBERMATE can be used on metal (tube, wrought iron or sheets). However, remember to use primerbefore applying TIMBERMATE. You can also do powder coating since TIMBERMATE is heat proof.
● Use a stainless steel or plastic putty knife/scraper to avoid metal rust or stains from spoiling/damagingputty.
