Application Method

Surface Preparation

Ensure dust, dirt, foreign matter are brushed away. Ridges and form oil should be removed. When applying filler to old painted surfaces first wash down with soda / water solution, rinse and allow to dry before filling.

To stabilise a surface which shows signs of dusting or flaking, the use of Penetrating Primer is recommended.

Application:

Apply the filler in a thin, even layer; if the area under repair requires a thick coat, apply several thin layers, allowing each layer to dry before adding the next. Lightly sandpaper over the dry final surface before painting preferably within 9 hours of application.

Clean tools and equipment with water after use.
