The following instructions pertain to the repair of defects such as chips, gouges, dents, and scratches on finished or partly finished surfaces.
These types of defects must be refilled.
H. Behlen Burn-In Sticks have long been considered to be one of the most versatile and aesthetically pleasing fillers in the industry.
They are available in solid (opaque) colors for repairing damages where the color has been removed and in transparent sticks for refilling shallow indentations where the original shade
of the finish remains.




1. Clean the repair area with Behlen
     De-Waxer 741.

2. Select the proper H. Behlen Burn-In Stick. Choose the color closest to the lightest color in the wood. If the damage is a dent with no color loss, use the clear stick.

3. Use a sharp knife to gently remove any splinters. Make sure no splinters protrude above the surface of the wood.

4. Using the Burn-In Knife, melt the
H. Behlen Burn-In Stick and allow the melted stick to flow into the damage area until it is slightly overfilled.

5. Protect the existing finish by applying
Burn-In Balm™ to the area surrounding the filled area.

6. Pull the Burn-In Knife across the damaged area to level the surface of the burn-in material as shown in. Never allow the edge of the knife to stop on the surface of the wood, as stopping will cause a knife mark. Always wipe the knife clean between strokes.

7. Apply Wool-Lube™ Rubbing Lubricant to the surface.

8. Gently sand with P400A or P800A waterproof sandpaper wrapped around the cork block over the repair in the direction of the grain.

9. After a few strokes, stop sanding and      determine if repair is level.                    
Repeat steps 7 & 8 until level.

10. Clean the repair area with
     De-Waxer 741.

11. If grain must be added, use a Graining      pen to draw in the missing lines.

12. Apply a topcoat that is appropriate for      the piece being repaired. Wood Finish Supply
