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 paint and primer while raising the grain to the level of the original wood surface when once painted results in a polished smooth surface. Non-Flammable, Non-combustible, Low Odor, Fast Drying, Easy to Apply, Water Clean Up, Environmentally Friendly.
Aqua Coat's White Cabinet Grain Filler can be used before painting...
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 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.
