Hello - This product can be used outdoors, but will need to be properly sealed for the outdoor conditions once fully dried.
I only need it for a couple nail holes. Does the container seals back up and can be stored for f...
Asked by Annie March 2, 2018
Yes. We recommend clearing any excess product from around the edges to help keep the seal.

3M Patch Plus Primer
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] A few years ago, we had a shower leak that trickled down into the kitchen ceiling causing the sheetrock to get mushy and bulge. My husband pushed on it with his finger and the sheetrock crumbled away in clumps, leaving a gaping hole, much to my dismay. More recently, I received a free sample of a 3M product to try and then evaluate it. This hole in my ceiling was a perfect opportunity to put this free 3M product to good use! Using the 3M Patch Plus Primer, my repair guy & painter was able to patch the good-sized hole by blending the patch in with the surrounding good sheetrock. If I didn't know any better, I would have never guessed that was a repair job. I'm very pleased with the end result.
I had used the 3M Patch material that didn't have the primer and was pleased with the product. However, the addition of the 'primer' causes the product to harden in the container. Once the container is opened it needs to be used in a fairly short amount of time.

I can find nothing on the container about drying time. How long does it have to dry before it can be sanded?

Bought this product and stored it for a month before getting around to using it. We live in the desert, so it gets hot in my garage, especially in the summer. It worked OK, but would have been easier to apply and less wasted, it it hadnt started drying out. Can this product:
1.) be rejuvenated by adding a little water?
2.) be stored in a refridgerator to extend life?
The only thing that keeps it from 5 stars for me is nothing included to help keep from drying out. I always cut me a piece of plastic to put over it and it works well. PLEASE INCLUDE A PLASTIC LINER OF SOME SORT TO HELP WITH THIS . Then it would be awesome. Other than that thanks for the great product
I bought this kit over a year ago and patched a sizable hole left by an antiquated security alarm. Worked like a charm. Today I pulled out the package of putty/primer to fill holes in the closet. Still usable, filled the three holes very easily. It’s nice to have everything I need for the project in one little package.
I’ve owned 5 houses. 2 new construction and 3 total remodels. Too many DIY projects to count. This is by far one of the worst products I’ve ever tried. The concept is great. The execution is worthless. Unless the inside of the drywall is very new and clean the tape won’t stick. I even tried other 3M tape and crazy glue. No luck. I’ll be going back to the old school method I know works. Total waste of time and money. I’d never buy it again.

Great product! I have a question...
I have used this with excellent results. I recently opened an old but unused container of 3M Patch Plus Primer that was in the closet for a while and it has completely dried up. Can I rejuvenate it by mixing in water, or is it ruined? Thank you.
The primer was an engineering fail. It makes the patch more difficult to blend in to the "never smooth" surface on any wall that has been painted before. The primer stains carpet, hardwood, etc. white if it falls on it. Without primer it would vacuum right up after it dried. Damp sponging to texture match was impossible. Still takes 2 coats of paint to cover.

Easy to use and everything you need in one package
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I tested this on a hole I made in my wall when the TV fell into it. This patch kit came in very handy. It was easy to use and the best part was everything was in one package.
