Apply TIMBERMATE with a spatula or knife using hand pressure to force into the edge or end of the grain.

Allow to dry and sand with a fine grit paper and apply topcoat.

Woodfiller/Wood Putty
Fills cracks, knots, pin and screw holes, splits, blemishes, etc. Fill deep holes in layers allowing time for each layer to dry. Will not blind natural wood grain. Drying time is about 30 minutes. TIMBERMATE dries hard and smooth without shrinking or sinking and can be belt or drum sanded as it is not affected by heat, the hotter it gets the harder and faster it sets and that means less down time.

You can speed dry TIMBERMATE by adjusting the surrounding air temperature. This can be done by using either hot air, heat lamps, or kiln ovens. TIMBERMATE can be mixed with any stains before or after filler is dry. To match medium and darker shades mix with natural, pine or other light shades. Use white TIMBERMATE only for white top coats.

Mix 10% to 15% water into TIMBERMATE to make a perfect grainfiller, sanding sealer and prime coat all in one application. First sand surface and with fine grit sandpaper, then apply grainfiller to surface with a spray gun, paint roller, hessian or a cloth rolled into a ball, rub across the grain in a circular motion finishing with the grain. Once filler is dry, sand with either sandpaper or a power sander, using a fine grit paper. Grainfiler can be used in a roller or curtain coater or spray gun using a 2mm nozzle and 60psi pressure. Can be further thinned down with water if required.

Due to the finishing system used to manufacture MDF it is essential to seal the job with a water-based non-acrylic product before applying top coats.

Preparing old floors: Scrape all dust and waste between boards and surface as well as from knot holes and nail heads. Vacuum well and carry out first sanding to prepare for filling and coating. Ensure that floor is stabilised, dry and free of movement.

Application new floors and prepared old floors: Fill cracks, knot and nail holes and all blemished with a putty knife. Fill deeper holes in layers of about 6mm allowing each fill to dry. Apply TIMBERMATE to entire floor as a sealant, using a squeegee, trowel or paint roller. Allow to dry and sand off with a fine paper – 120 to 150 grit is recommended for best results. Floor can now be stained or varnished.
