Uses & Applications

Ideal for filling nail holes, gouges, cracks, scratches and imperfections on furniture, woodwork, molding, cabinets, paneling, plywood, windows, doors and painted surfaces. Made in the U.S.

Application Instructions

  1. Surface must be clean, dry and free of dirt, oil and loose material. De-gloss surface if necessary for best adhesion.
  2. Surface, wood filler and air temperature should be above 40°F.
  3. If staining, test wood filler with desired stain on scrap wood before filling to ensure desired stain color. Stain before filling with wood filler, then use stain to develop desired final finish.
  4. Stir product with putty knife before application. For squeeze tubes, knead the tube prior to cutting and extruding material.
  5. Apply wood filler into area to be filled. Press firmly into place using a putty knife or tool.
  6. Avoid overspreading filler on surrounding surfaces. Overfill slightly to allow for sanding and settling. Most repairs require just one fill. Larger and deeper holes may require more than one application.
  7. For larger and deeper holes, apply thin layers to build up thick sections. Allow wood filler to dry before applying next layer.
  8. Allow to dry thoroughly before sanding: approximately 3 to 6 hours for shallow fills up to 1/8-inch and 36 hours for deeper fills 1/4-inch and over. Sand with medium sandpaper.
  9. May be painted with latex-based paint immediately after sanding, or after 12 hours if using an oil-based paint.
  10. Exterior applications and applications subject to water exposure must be sealed with a waterproof coating.

Question & Answers

User Reviews

DAP PWL Plastic Wood Latex All Purpose Wood Filler
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.
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.
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.
