Sadolin Stainable Wood Filler is perfect for wood imperfections, particularly corner work and holes up to 50mm deep, such as knots. 350ml container contains base and hardener. Specially formulated to accept woodstains, providing the perfect match to your wood or woodstain.
Timber surfaces to be filled must be suitably prepared, clean, sound and dry. The moisture content should not exceed 18% prior to filling.
Please Note: Failure to provide a suitable substrate may result in poor adhesion and performance of the repair. When used in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations, and the repaired area is sanded flush, perfect results are achievable.
Always do a small test area before beginning any project and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the container at all times.
Do not apply if there is a risk of rain, or when air / substrate temperatures are below 8°C or the relative humidity is above 80% during application or drying periods. Protect from frost and rain until dry. Failure to meet these requirements may adversely affect the curing, visual quality and durability of the filler.
Sadolin Stainable Wood Filler is supplied in two parts - a can of filler and a tube of hardener. Both components must be combined for use.
Immediately remove / scrape off excess filler from spatulas and filling knives and clean with cellulose thinners.
Once dry, wood can be overcoated with a suitable top coat from the Sadolin range.
When overcoating with translucent products, as with all such products, the final appearance is dependent on a number of factors including the timber species, the relative absorbency of the timber and the filler, and the presence of any existing coating.
If the timber that is filled is much darker than the filler, e.g. walnut, mahogany or teak, or if the surrounding timber has been stained, apply a little stain to the filled surface using an artist's brush, to bring it to a similar colour before re-staining or varnishing the whole surface. Certain timbers will absorb to a greater extent than the filler, and 2 or 3 applications of stain to the filled area may be needed to achieve the desired result.
Always carry out a test application, especially when very accurate colour matching is of importance. It is essential to ensure that the colour match between the substrate and filler is acceptable in terms of colour, density and workmanship before overcoating with clear or translucent finishing coats.
In exterior locations the decorative protective finish should be maintained in the usual way, as required. If the timber is left unprotected it will move excessively and this may result in a breakdown of the bond between the timber and filler.
