Here are some of Klockit's Helpful Hints for buying, using, and storing KraftKote and Tabletop KraftKote. All hints apply to both KraftKote and Tabletop KraftKote.

Buying KraftKote: If you are unsure about how much to buy or you want to make sure KraftKote can be used for your specific project, please feel free to call Klockit first (1-800-556-6474) before placing an order. KraftKote is non-returnable and can only be shipped via ground service within the Continental United States. Please Note: No RUSH delivery available on Kraftkote. Because it is considered a hazardous material, KraftKote cannot be shipped through the United States Post Office.

Using KraftKote: For best results, you should seal your project first with a water-soluble solution of four parts white glue to one part water. This will help eliminate some of the bubbles that occur when applying KraftKote. Do not use polyurethane varnish or an oil-based sealer to seal your project. Pour at 1/8" thick at each pour and allow at least 36 hours for this product to properly cure.

Storing KraftKote: Store all KraftKote in original containers, sealed tightly in a dark area to extend the shelf life. Store at a temperature between 70 degrees F-80 degrees F and a humidity level below 60%. Shelf life is one year.

If you have any questions or concerns about purchasing or using our KraftKote products, we urge you to Please Call Klockit's Technical Assistance Line Before Ordering at 1-800-556-6474

can I use a small quantity of Kraftkote as the sealer coat. makes more sense to me than thinned white glue? How do I coat the edges? Are there any Heat requirements during cure period? Thank you, George

Asked by: wogadog
We do not recommend using KraftKote as the sealer coat. If you are using KraftKote on wood, we recommend using the white glue first due to the air bubbles that will need to be released from the wood. The ideal location for pouring would be dust-free, well ventilated, and in a controlled temperature between 70°F to 80°F and humidity at less than 50%. To coat the edges, pour the KraftKote on the desired location and let it drip freely off the edge of the item to coat the sides. If you have any questions on this information, please contact us at 1-800-556-2548.

I am using KraftKote(KK) to fill in a large 3" diameter hole in a board that will become a coffee table. The intent is to use the KK to fill in the hole. How flexible is KK to expansion and contraction?

Asked by: Edward
Hi Edward, KraftKote is designed to be used as a finish not a filler. We recommend using a wood filler to fill in your 3" hole.
