Surface Preparation & Application
• Surface must be clean, dry and free of dirt, oil and loose material. De-gloss surface if necessary for best
• Surface, wood filler and air temperature should be above 40°F.
• If staining, test wood filler with desired stain on scrap wood before filling to ensure desired stain color.
• Squeeze Tube: Knead tube before using. Before removing cap, squeeze tube to pop out nozzle. Remove
• Apply wood filler into area to be filled. Press firmly into place using a putty knife or tool.
• Avoid overspreading filler on surrounding surfaces. Overfill slightly to allow for sanding and settling.
Most repairs require just one fill. Larger and deeper holes may require more than one application.
For larger and deeper holes, apply thin layers to build up thick sections. Build fill-up slightly higher
than surface to allow for sanding and settling. Allow each layer to dry before applying next layer.
• Allow to dry thoroughly before sanding: approximately 2 to 6 hours for shallow fills up to 1/8” and 36
hours for deeper fills 1/4” and over. Sand with medium sandpaper.
• May be painted with latex-based paint immediately after sanding, or after 12 hours if using an oil-based
• Exterior applications must be coated with latex or oil-based paint or solid color stain.
• If wood is to be stained, stain before filling with wood filler. Select a wood filler color that most closely
matches desired stain finish color. Then use stain to develop desired final finish.
• Reseal container tightly with lid/cap.
• Keep from freezing.
Application Temperature Range:
Depending on temperature and humidity: 2 to 6 hours in shallow fills up
to 1/8"; up to 36 hours in deep fills 1/4"and over.
Wipe off excess filler from surface and tools with a damp cloth before material dries. Dried wood filler must be
sanded or scraped away. Reseal tightly with lid/cap after each use.
