Answer: 
No and it states "interior" use on the box however.... I covered an entire outside door made of OSB and applied ordinary latex primer to it and 2 years later not problem, no cracks, chips etc. Keep in mind it is not submerged in water and while it has gotten splashed with water from the hose it generally is dry.

I know you sell "Fix it All", but do you carry Concrete Fix All made by Custom Bldg Products?

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent multpurpose patching agent but it dries FAST! Basically, this appears to be a very similar product to Fastset Lite aka rapid setting joint compound. It seems to have some plaster of pairs influences. Examples of where I used it: Dry wall - ceiling to build some low spots in a repair. I put it on at 1/2 thick or so in some spots. 1.5 years later - no cracking and I didn't use any joint compound tape between the sheets of drywall around the large repair ~ 6x5 feet. I have used it to smooth out knots and gouges on 2x6 stairs in my home office that gets walked over on a daily basis. Only one spot chipped which was where the stair was nailed to the stinger. Not bad - daily walking on the steps and landing for almost 2 years! I applied latex primer over the patches. Outside - I bought the large 20lb? sack of fix-it-all because it was damaged and leaking I asked for a half off discount and my wish was granted. The problem was I had so much of it I didn't know how I would ever use it up. The solution: mix large batches and apply it to the outside of my door which was made out of OSB. I applied it between 1/8 to ~ 1/4" thick to smooth out the door. I let it dry for a few days because of the thickness then I applied latex primer and paint. It is a door and has even been slammed HARD once. NO CRACKS! No problems even from a light spay of water from the garden hose. This exceeded my expectations. I like that the water can be adjusted to make it thick to fill holes or thin to smooth out a rough surface. ONE COMPLAINT: I wish the set time was slower like 20 minutes instead of 10. Ten minutes is too fast and limits the batch size. You need about 2 minutes or more to add water, mix and get to the place where you are going to apply the compound. That leaves a working time of 7 minutes or less. Once it starts to kick off and set adding water will not help and extra water does not increase the working time. Other than that this is great stuff that even holds up on a wood floor. April 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not For Exterior Use Good for some things. Hard as a rock but hard to sand. Cleans up easily with water as long as you do it before it hardens. Seems very durable but don't use it outside. I thought as long as I put primer and good paint on it, it would be O.K. But, in some areas the paint is bubbling up. If there is any way moisture can get in there (back, sides, etc.), it will. February 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to Use for the Novice Even I had some wood on a pillar in the front of my house that had broken off in an awkard way and this product made it Easy to fix what I needed to fill in. April 22, 2015
