Product Description

3M Super Red Putty is a 1k glazing putty that's easy to spread and self-levels for repairing minor surface imperfections such as scratches, pinholes, and stone chips. In addition, this 3m putty dry time makes it suitable for larger areas, allowing you to coat an entire room with one thin application. Excellent feathering properties produce a smooth feather-edge where the repair blends into the surrounding surface, which reduces the sanding needed to smooth the edge.

Our nitrocellulose-base putty offers an ample working time of approximately 3 minutes yet dries quickly enough to be ready for sanding in about 30 minutes. Our single-component glazing putty is ready to use without mixing or blending with a separate hardener, so any preparatory work or chance of mixing errors is deficient.

Features & Benefits

  • 1K putty for minor surface blemishes
  • Feathers out to a smooth surface
  • Cured putty sands easily, even after overnight drying
  • Nitrocellulose-base putty offers generous 3-minute working time
Made in the U.S.

Application Instructions

  • Do not apply when ambient temperatures are below 55°F or above 110°F. Use in a well ventilated area away from sparks or open flame.
  • For best results, apply only over clean primed surfaces. (Use compressed air to remove any dust contamination).
  • Apply using a plastic or metal spreader pressing the putty firmly into the imperfections; keep the application thickness to 1/16 inches or less. Apply in thin coats instead of one thick application.
  • Allow to dry for 15 minutes at 72°F prior to sanding. Sand (wet or dry) using 3M&rade; abrasives in the following sequence P180, P220, P320. Note: As with any putty, longer drying times will occur with high humidity, thick applications and low temperatures.
  • Re-clean surface prior to priming or top coating. (Follow paint manufacturer’s recommendation for priming and top coating

Question & Answers

User Reviews

3M Super Red Putty
Made in the USA
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
acrylic
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
silicone
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
