Thixotropic Grain Filler
Grain filler for filling the pores of open-pored woods such as mahogany, ash and oak. Thixotropic refers to its variable viscosity - when mixed and stirred it transforms into an easily spreadable paste. Use on bare wood prior to dying and sealing.
Approximately 2.5sq m per 450g tin, depending on the timber to which it is applied.
Once mixed this filler can be thinned with Standard Cellulose Thinners or White Spirit up to a maximum of 10%.
Use on bare wood before staining or sealing. We recommend using our rubber edged Grain Filler Applicator for quicker, easier and more consistent application.
Sand wood to 320 grit
The filler is quick-drying so work in small areas approximately 10x10cm (4x4”)
Using firm pressure apply the filler in the direction of the grain, pushing the filler into the wood’s pores
Immediately scrape off all excess filler, working across the grain
Repeat across the whole surface of the wood
Leave to dry overnight, then sand to 320 grit
Particularly porous pieces of wood may require a second application
Suitable for use under all of our Cellulose/Nitrocellulose finishes. Once dry it can also be stained with our Interior Spirit Based or Interior Water Based Dyes, Aniline Dyes, and Metal Complex Dyes.
