Prefinished Baltic Birch Plywood

Does anyone know how to patch prefinished BB plywood? I have a cabinet project underway and am using 3/4 BB, finished on one side. There are a few places where dings have occurred and I would like to try to mend them. This stuff does not scratch easily, but if scratched it will show. I guess I can try wax pencils, but wondering if there is something more permanent that I could use.

i assume you are going to stain them? check out the minwax products. they have some wood putty/filler stuff that you can stain to match your final coat.

if you are painting, its even easier..

No, I just want to repair the finish that has been marred or scratched. I am looking for something I can put on the prefinished coating to cover the scratch. If it was a urethane or varnish coating, I would just lightly sand it and put another coating over the questionable area. But with this prefinish coating on the BB, I don't know what product to use. That is what I am looking for.

I don't think I will recommend getting the prefinished BB to anyone. Unless they are so careful they can be assured of not messing the surface area. Otherwise, it appears to be difficult to repair. If I finished it myself, that would not be a problem. It is not proving easy to find any info on this coating or how to "fix" it.

Contact the manufacturer- maybe they have touch up material available.
