SURFACE PREPARATION: Surface must be clean and dry (free from all dirt, oil, wax and polish). Sand surface thoroughly. Remove all dust with a vacuum, forced air or damp cloth (water).
DIRECTIONS FOR USE: AQUA COAT CLEAR WOOD GRAIN FILLER should be applied after the piece is stained, and/or a seal coat (Aqua Coat “X-119” Sanding Sealer) has been applied. Stain and seal coat must be dry and lightly sanded with 220-grit or finer sandpaper. Grain Filler can be tinted with water-soluble colorants or dyes. If no stain or seal coat is used, you may apply Aqua Coat Clear Grain Filler to the raw wood. Grain Filler may be applied with a soft cloth, using a circular motion, much like applying a paste wax. Or work Grain Filler generously into open wood grain pores with a small squeegee or flexible putty knife. Inspect to see if the grain is completely filled, then scrape or squeegee to remove excess. Let dry 30-45 minutes, then lightly sand with 320-grit paper. If grain is not completely filled, repeat the application process. 1-2 coats of Grain Filler are recommended. A seal coat (Aqua Coat “X-119” Sanding Sealer) and sanding between coats is also recommended. Allow overnight dry time. A final coat of finish is always recommended over the Grain Filler.
Aqua Coat grain filler may be thinned with water and dries crystal clear.
