We originally didn't think a cost effective wood repair system could be so easy and effective, but boy were we wrong! Power Adhesives has developed the ultimate product for woodworkers, KNOT-TEC knot filling adhesive has been designed for fast wood repair that produces great results every time.
It not only repairs knots, but also deep scratches and other wood blemishes. This Knot Filling Adhesive comes in six colors to help best match your project: amber, beige, black, cola, cream and oak.
There are two different formulas, 7713 and 7718, which cater to different project needs. The 7713 formula is for general applications where an easy to trim and sand adhesive is required such as filling in knots and blemishes on doors or frames. On the other hand, the 7718 formula is ideal for applications that require a tough and durable product that will wear well.
