- Application Methods
Knotting is used for sealing the natural knots in timber prior to painting. Patent knotting is the most widely used, but White Knotting is preferred for use under white or pastel coloured paints.
A heavier version of Button Polish and has a translucent, slightly brown appearance in the liquid form. The colour makes it easy to see on the timber surface which helps in seeing which knots have been treated. When dry it produces a medium brown semi-transparent film.
A heavier version of White Polish and has a cloudy white appearance in the liquid form. When dry it produces a transparent and almost colourless film making it ideal for use under white and pastel paints.
- Application is by brush.
- Apply two coats of knotting allowing 2-3 hours between applications.
- For best results leave at least overnight before applying a coat of paint primer.
- Knotting may be applied to both old and new timber.
