I need tips for using Araldite Ultra Clear to fill table top thin cracks whilst avoiding the rest of the surface. Can you sand this product?

What is the best implement/technique for actually getting the Araldite Ultra Clear into timber table top cracks quickly, without mess, before it sets??

Araldite Ultra Clear could be used although it is a five minute formulation so working time is quite short. You could possibly use Araldite Super Strength which will give you 1.5 to 2 hours working time and should provide very close to clear finish in thin cracks in timber . We do not have specific information or advice on how you could apply the product in this application but some of the hints below may help: Araldite epoxies can be sanded when fully hardened. The best way of applying the Araldite would be with a small knife, spatula or scraper and forcing it into the crack then smoothing over. To make the application into the cracks a bit neater you can use masking tape along either side of the crack and then remove it as soon as you have smoothed it off and before the adhesive starts to gel and cure.
