ZAR Wood Patch is a ready-to-use latex patching compound containing treated pulverized wood to fill nail holes, repair cracks, gouges, chips, etc., in all types of wood. The special property allows ZAR Wood Patch to accept stains more uniformly than other wood fillers. ZAR Wood Patch is excellent for many uses because it shrinks less and maybe nailed, sawed, sanded, or drilled. ZAR Wood Patch will take paint, varnish, shellac, polyurethanes, stains and can be used indoors or outdoors. When a patched area requires stain, ZAR Wood Patch greatly diminishes the lighter area of the “halo” effect surrounding the patch ordinarily present with other wood fillers. In addition, ZAR Wood Patch is neutral in color and nonflammable.
