What is TIMBERMATE used for?
TIMBERMATE is a wood filler that can be used to repair damaged wood, make wood look new, or give it a different appearance.
This product can be used to fill cracks and holes in furniture, as well as fix broken furniture. It also helps to create beautiful picture frames and other projects that require good quality woodworking skills.
This material is very easy to use because you don’t need any special tools or machinery when applying it; just scoop out the amount of TIMBERMATE needed with your hands, then use your fingers or spatula (depending on whether you’re using this product for small areas) to spread evenly over the surface of damaged areas until they’re covered completely with this material.
The last step before painting is letting this surface dry overnight so that excess moisture doesn’t cause problems when painting over top of it tomorrow morning!
How long does Timbermate wood filler take to dry?
The drying time for Timbermate depends on the temperature and humidity of your environment. Generally, it will take approximately 4 hours to dry at room temperature (70°F/21°C) and 1 hour longer if you’re working outside in cooler temperatures.
If you’re using a humidifier in your workshop, then it’ll take even longer for the filler to dry out completely.
In extreme cases where there’s too much moisture, Timbermate may remain sticky and not fully cured until it’s allowed to sit for several days or weeks before being sanded down again.
What is TIMBERMATE made of?
TIMBERMATE Wood Filler is made of sawdust and glue, which are mixed together with other natural ingredients to create a long-lasting, durable product that can be used on interior or exterior wood surfaces.
It’s 100% non-toxic, safe in contact with food and drink, and not harmful to the environment at all.
Can Timbermate wood filler be stained?
Yes, Timbermate can be stained. However, you should be aware that it may not take stain as well as the wood underneath timbermate (the parent wood).
This is because Timbermate creates a protective film around the parent wood that allows for better adhesion of paint and varnish.
If you are planning on staining your project after using Timbermate, we recommend using a water-based stain to avoid lifting or clogging up the pores in your finished product.
Oil-based stains can also be used but they tend to darken the surface of your project more than water-based stains do so we don’t recommend them.
Can you thin Timbermate wood filler?
Timbermate wood filler can be thinned with water. The ratio is 1:1, meaning you mix equal parts of Timbermate and water.
This is great news for people who want to use the product on a variety of materials or in situations where it’s likely to be difficult to sand the filler down later because you’re working with a large surface area, such as outdoors or on a large piece of furniture.
Be careful not to use thinner or other chemicals when trying to thin out your wood filler though: these could cause adverse effects on both your health and the finished product’s quality!
How do you use TIMBERMATE as a grain filler?
TIMBERMATE Wood Filler is a flexible and elastic product that can be used as a grain filler. It can also be used to fill small holes, chips, and cracks in wood surfaces.
The following steps should be taken when using TIMBERMATE as a grain filler:
- Use a putty knife or similar to apply the TIMBERMATE Wood Filler in thin layers, allowing each layer to dry before applying another coat.
- Sand smooth when dry and repeat if necessary until the desired result is achieved (this may vary depending on how much material was removed from your project).
What is the difference between wood filler and plastic wood?
- Timbermate and plastic wood are both made from wood, but they’re not the same thing.
- Plastic wood is more flexible and therefore more durable than timbermate. It’s also easier to use and dries faster than timbermate (which takes at least 24 hours). Plus, you can paint plastic wood if you want to give your project a nice finish once it’s been filled.
- Timbermate dries slower than plastic wood because it’s not quite as thick or stiff—but this also means that there are fewer chemicals in the product, so it won’t irritate your skin or lungs when you use it. Plus, when dry, timbermate can be sanded down for a smoother finish if need be!
