Quick Cure Wood Putty colors can be intermixed to achieve a customized color. Avoid cross-contaminating the resin and hardener components with each other.
Remove sanding dust and loose debris before use.
Measuring and Mixing:
Note: Quick Cure Wood Putty cures rapidly in mass. To prevent waste, Keep the maximum batch no larger than a golf ball-size mass.
Using disposable safety gloves, combine equal parts of Quick Cure Wood Putty Resin (Part A) with Hardener (Part B). Knead the components together until the mixture is uniform in color. After mixing, you will have approximately 3 minutes of working time to apply the putty.
Knots and Cracks
Firmly pack the putty into the knot or crack. Slightly overfill the void with Quick Cure Wood Putty to ensure enough material is available for sanding flush to the surface.
Substrates with large, exposed surfaces should be primed with Quick Cure Wood Putty for best results. Prime the surface by smearing a thin layer of the mixed putty over the substrate. Then immediately press the remainder of the Quick Cure Wood Putty over the primed surface. This will ensure a tenacious bond to the substrate. Slightly overfill the repair area with the putty.
Additional layers of putty can be added if the Quick Cure Wood Putty is still soft and pliable. If the putty has hardened, scuff the surface with 150 grit sandpaper. Then prime the surface with Quick Cure Wood Putty and add the remaining mass of putty.
In room temperature conditions of 70°F (21°C), the putty is sandable in 1 hour. Colder temperatures will extend the time to sand, while warmer temperatures will reduce the time to sand.
Time to Sand
Most stains and finishes are compatible with Quick Cure Wood Putty. Pretesting is recommended to ensure that the final results meet your expectations.
Note: When staining, sand to 220 grit for the best combination of surface finish and stain absorption. Sanding courser will allow the putty to absorb more of the stain, resulting in a darker appearance. Conversely, sanding finer than 220 will yield a lighter appearance.
Tips And Tricks:
If you plan on screwing or nailing into the putty, first drill a slightly undersized pilot hole to prevent cracking.
Use denatured alcohol or white vinegar for the cleanup of uncured material.
