Aqua Coat's White Cabinet Grain Filler is an easy to apply white gel that you use to fill the pores and grains of your wood cabinet doors and drawers before you paint them. The Grain Filler both seals the grains and pores of the wood which minimizes the absorption of the primer and paint when painted resulting in a polished smooth surface. Non-Flammable, Non-combustible, Low Odor, Fast Drying, Easy Sanding, Easy to Apply, Water Clean Up, Environmentally Friendly.
Aqua Coat's White Cabinet Grain Filler can be used before painting...
"Amazing, I loved that I can really see the filler sitting in the pores of the wood so I know when they have been filled all the way"
"You guys have a real hit here"
"It made my cabinets look like a professional did them. I can't wait to try it on my kitchen table"
Make sure cabinets are well cleaned, deglossed, and sanded down to a 180 grit paper. If using for surfaces other than cabinets follow the same process. Remove dust with forced air or a damp rag (water only). DO NOT USE TACK RAGS as they have oils and waxes and will repel the grain filler when you apply it.
Test all steps on a sample board or the back of a one of your kitchen drawers before starting your project to get used to using the product and determine the method that will give you the look that you want to achieve.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Work the White Grain Filler generously into open wood grain and pores against the grain with a small squeegee, bond blade, old credit card, or fingers with a glove. Filler may also be applied with a cotton rag or a soft cloth in a circular motion. Scrape off excess with a squeegee, bondo blade, or an old credit card with the grain. Let dry 45-60 minutes. VERY lightly sand with a 320 or higher grit sandpaper or a fine scotchbrite sanding pad immediately before your next application of grain filler and your first coat of paint. The only reason you are sanding is for adhesion purposes. 2-3 coats are recommended. Follow with 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of paint.

The product is great for filling grain, but needs many coats.
I ordered Aqua Coat and decided to go another route. The product was in the originally shipped packaging and unopened. I contacted the owner regarding how to return since the policy was unclear and his response was "Send with your order info and it will also incur a 25% restocking fee". I asked how so since this was not explained on their website for return policy, and not to mention it was never opened. Brian could not give me a straight answer. The next day, I rechecked the return policy and amazingly enough the 25% restocking fee was added and HIGHLIGHTED on the return policy. Im unsure as how unboxing one single item and putting it back on the shelf constitutes a restocking fee. Not to mention the product was never opened and altering the return policy the same day after discussing with me. Never will I purchase another item and will ensure friends/family to do the same. Brian - you should be ashamed to do this as a small business owner, as I am one myself. Customer service is #1 and there is no excuse.
This product is easy to work with and I appreciate the white color to see progress on filling the grain of the oak kitchen cabinets I am painting.
