How do you mix Toupret fillers?
Toupret Wood Filler is a two-component system. The components must be mixed with one part wood filler to one part hardener before use, to give the product its durable and flexible properties.
For example, if you want to fill a 30 cm long crack in your kitchen floor that’s 15 cm wide (30cm x 15cm), you would need about 45ml of Touretts Wood Filler and 45ml of Touretts Hardener (1:1).
An important thing to keep in mind is that mixing time for all our products is 5 minutes. If you mix them any longer than this, they will begin to set and become difficult to apply.
Mixing ratio: 1:1 (part number 1 on label equals part number 2 on label)
Tools needed: stirrer or spatula
Can you use Toupret filler on wood?
Yes, you can use Touretts wood filler on wood.
Touretts wood fillers are suitable for use on all types of wood, including:
- Wooden doors and windowsills
- Fireplaces and mantelpieces
- Wooden floors
How do you mix wood filler?
You’ll need to mix your wood filler and apply it as soon as possible, but how do you go about that? First, measure the phosphoric acid (aka the hardener) according to the instructions on your packaging.
Mix in one part hardener per two parts filler.
Use a whisk or spoon to combine everything well. If too much hardener has been added, it will dry out faster than normal and create a brittle finish; if not enough has been added, there won’t be enough kick in the material when you apply it—and then again when it cures!
Mixing time varies depending on how thick or thin you want your final product to be: For light-colored woods like pine and fir, mix for no longer than five minutes; darker woods require closer attention over an extended period—but don’t let them sit for more than ten minutes!
Once mixed well enough so that everything is integrated into each other visually (i.e., there aren’t any unmixed lumps), clean up any excess with damp cloths before applying directly onto surfaces where they might get painted afterward (like I did).
How do you match wood filler to wood?
To match your wood filler to the wood you are filling, try mixing it in different ways to get the right look.
If the filler is lighter than the wood: Use a darker colored filler. This will help hide any imperfections and make it easier to sand down after drying.
If the filler is darker than your wood: Try a lighter colored filler that matches your existing finish or stain if possible.
If not, use a light-colored mixture of three parts white glue and one part water until you reach an appropriate color match between that and your existing finish or stain.
You may also choose to mix different types of fillers together in order for them all to match as closely as possible!
Do you need to prime Toupret?
If you are using Toupret to fill holes in wood, then yes, you do need to prime it. This is because the filler will not adhere properly to the wood without a primer first being applied.
If, however, you’re working with metal or plastic or resin or concrete—or if your project has some other material in which no adhesion is necessary—then no priming is required by Toupret before applying it to fill gaps and cracks.
How long does Toupret filler take to dry?
Toupret filler dries slowly. There are two types of Toupret, white and grey. While the grey type has a longer drying time than the white type (1 to 2 days vs 2 to 3 days), both take longer than other fillers such as polyfilla or wood filler.
It is recommended to sand after 24 hours so that you can get a smooth finish when using your final coat of paint or varnish.
What is two part wood filler?
Two-part wood filler is a two-component additive putty used to fill holes, cracks, dents and other defects in wood. It’s typically composed of epoxy resin and a hardener that must be mixed together before application.
Since this type of product requires mixing together two components, it can sometimes be tricky for people who are new to using wood fillers for the first time.
In order to help you avoid frustration when applying your filler and ensure you get the best results possible, we’ve put together this guide with step-by-step instructions on how best to apply toupret wood filler.
How do you use fine surface filler Toupret?
