ZAR® Wood Patch is a latex compound that both contractors and savvy do-it-yourselfers rely on to fill nail holes, and repair cracks, gouges, broken corners, and chipped edges on wood surfaces. It's excellent for a variety of uses because it only shrinks a little, and can be nailed, sawed, sanded, or drilled. ZAR® Wood Patch can be used indoors or outdoors, and accepts paint, varnish, shellac, polyurethanes, and stains. In fact, it actually accepts stain more readily than conventional wood patching compounds. When a patched area requires stain, the neutral color of this product greatly diminishes the lighter area or “halo” effect around the patch that’s typically present with other wood fillers.
