Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What type of wood dye/colourant can be added to Brummer Interior Wood Filler (Yellow Label) and how much should be added?
A. Artists Acrylic Paint can be added to the Interior Wood Filler in the range of 10-20% and thoroughly mixed prior to application. The addition should not exceed 20%.
Q. Which wood filler is best to use on repairs to a boat?
A. Use Brummer Exterior Wood Filler (Green label) as it is intended for use on external timber even below the waterline.
Q. Can Brummer Interior Wood Filler (Yellow Label) be used outdoors?
A. No, use Brummer Exterior Wood Filler (Green Label) instead. As a general rule, exterior-grade products may be used in the house, but not the other way around for interior-grade finishing materials unless overcoated with an exterior finish.
Q. What type of wood dye/colourant can be added to Brummer Exterior Wood Filler (Green Label) and how much should be added.
A. A methylated spirits based wood dye can be added to the Exterior Wood Filler in the range of 10-20% and thoroughly mixed prior to application. The addition should not exceed 20%. White spirit based wood dyes are not compatible and should not be used.
Q. Can Brummer be varnished over?
A. Brummer fillers will accept most decorative finishes such as stains, paints, polishes, lacquers and varnishes. One exception are acid-catalysed finishing systems, where there may be discolouration. If in doubt, conduct a test on an inconspicuous area first.
Q. Can a limed effect be achieved with Brummer?
A. This effect may be achieved with White or Standard Brummer Yellow Interior Wood Filler thinned with water to a creamy paste and applied with a cloth across the wood grain, such that only the grain retains the filler paste. Once dry, the filler may be finished as desired.
Q. How long does Brummer remain useable?
A. Provided the containers are kept tightly closed and stored in a cool, dry environment not subject to temperature extremes, Brummer should remain workable/useable for at least two years.
Q. My antique furniture has woodworm holes. How can I fill the holes?
A. First you need to deal with the woodworm itself. Then apply the appropriate shade of Brummer Wood Filler Sticks or Briwax Wax Filer Stick to the holes. This is done by shaving a small piece from the stick, soften this piece with your fingers and finally apply to the hole with a putty knife. Level off the filler with the knife and finally buff away any excess with a clean soft cloth.
Q. My new table top has been damaged. How can I repair it?
A. Brummer can be used to effect minor repairs to a finished surface, provided care is used not to further damage the existing finish. After that it is possible to apply varnish etc. over the dried filler, taking care to check the final appearance of the repair.
Q. How do I colour match grain?
A. Brummer fillers are available in an extensive range of colours, however in practice it is unlikely an exact match will be achieved. It is possible to mix different shades of Brummer filers from the same range, but to get an exact match requires experimentation. In order to facilitate any colour matching, stand closed tins of filler in warm water for a few minutes to soften and render them more pliable first.
Q: Can Brummer be used to repair a metal fireguard?
A: Brummer Yellow Label Interior Woodfiller is thermally resistant up to temperatures of 90 degrees centigrade and is ideal for this type of repair job, also for use on mantelpieces and fire surrounds. Brummer Yellow Label Interior Woodfiller may be used on most metals, but conduct a small test first.
