Grilith Wood filler: First Aid for Wood

Small cracks, unusual knots, poor veneer joints – not rare occurrences...

HOW YOU FILL UP DEFECTIVE SPOTS ON RAW WOOD

Small cracks, unusual knots, poor veneer joints – no rare occurrences when working with wood. Patch up all these minor defects before applying stains and paints on the raw wood to get perfect results. Simply press in the wood filler into the defective spot using a filler for this purpose. You should fill up large defective spots many times since the filler material yields: in technical jargon, "sinkage" of the filler.

THE RIGHT COLOUR SHADE

If you plan to apply stains to the surface after treatment, the colour shade of the wood filler should somewhat match the final colour shade. In the case of knotted spruce, it is recommended to use a filler having the darker colour shade of the knots.

DRY PROPERLY

You can sand and process small cracks and defective spots after three to five hours. Larger and deeper defects and recesses must be left to dry overnight (change in the colour shade of the wood filler). They can then be recoated with water-based and solvent-based coating systems.

PROPER DILUTION OR THINNING

The wood filler must have a cream-like texture. Do not allow the can to remain open for a long time since, otherwise, the solvent evaporates and the filler dries up. Please always use the original dilution. Dilution with nitro, PUR or alcohol delay the drying considerably and also affect the property of the wood filler remarkably.

STORE PROPERLY

When storing, always pay attention to see that the cover is closed properly.

Tip: Storing the can upside down prevents the drying up process.

WHAT ELSE YOU NEED TO KNOW

ADLER Grilith Holzkitt (wood filler) contains pigments so that it can get the right colour. Hence, it is also possible to recoat it with coloured coating material. In case of fillers having colorants or dyes, the dyestuff would etch and bleed as a result.

 

Please select the filler compatible with your application from eleven different colour shades from ADLER Grilith and make small taints and flaws unnoticeable!
