Questions & Answers


I have a 3/4" diameter hole that I drilled with a forstner bit 1/2" deep into 3/4" birch plywood....

Asked by LWD June 4, 2021

I believe this will work fine. I can’t really comment on the strength but this stuff is quite solid so depending on how much weight/pressure you need to have on the hole it should be good for most scenarios. It is basically Bondo and dries very quickly. I would say it will be totally dry to work with and redrill in an hour.

Can it be aplied over silicone caulk

Asked by Charles May 23, 2021

Hello Charles, The question is more suited to the manufacture. You can contact them directly. Generally filler is used to fill not as a sealer over especially over a silicone base. Why would you not simply level off the silicone and paint it to match?

can I screw into this when it hardens?

Do I need to treat the wood before applying? Like, rough it up with coarse sand paper, or paint ...

Asked by RO March 7, 2021

As a furniture maker with more than 35 years of experience, is a must to create some surface with enough grip to attach it. I'm light hand sanding the area with 80 or 100 grit sandpaper. In that way the filler has an increased surface where to adhere

Is this an epoxy wood filller? If not, is it as strong as epoxy?

Asked by shank March 1, 2021

It is, and you mix it in the same way that the one for cars.

Once it is cured, can i nail into Bondo Wood Filler?

Asked by Mark February 28, 2021

Yes. I use this on a wood post on my front porch that was rotting and deteriorated. After conditioning the word with the coordinating Bondo conditioner and restorer, I then used this product to fill in the void. I then screwed the mount for my flag directly into the Bondo and it’s holding up perfectly.

Can it be used in any temperature

Asked by Jo November 29, 2020

If its to cold takes a long time to get hard, and if to hot it will get hard real fast

Can this be drilled for a lag screw ?

Asked by bluthumb November 14, 2020

If this doesn't work for you, re-drill the hole and use the hardest JB Weld available in the store. That will definitely hold up to a lag screw. Be sure to look up the drill size needed for the size lag that you are using because too small and you will have trouble putting the lag in.

Can this be applied over oil bases stain?

Asked by Bethl November 2, 2020

Yes. Light sand prior. Mix a little at a time

What this be apole over oil based stain?

Asked by Bethl November 2, 2020

Acetone is good start. Should sand area to be patched. No oil or stain in between.

Wood repair on trim was pretty quick with this wood filler and hardener kit. I just waited 15 to 20 minutes and it was ready to sand down, prime and paint on a small custom repair. I highly recommend this.

Used on my 30 year old Cedar Shed - was excellent in repairing damage from wood bees and the bottom area of several boards which had begun to rot. My shed should last another 20 years! I did make sure the boards were dry before I put on the Bondo Rot Repair and then the Wood Filler.

I have a post at the end of the overhang over my front porch. There was an area along the side that had started to rot and was crumbling. It was economically impossible to replace it at the time so I decided to try and fix it. I knew Bondo made repair kits for automobiles and I was pleasantly surprised to find that they also made one for wood. The area I was going to repair was crumbling pretty good so I started by using the Bondo rotted wood repair first. I applied six coats, allowing the recommended two minute drying time between each coat. This prepared the surface for the Bondo wood filler. First of all, you need to find something to mix it on. I used a sheet of plexiglass I had laying around. This gave me the smooth surface necessary to mix the two components together. It recommended to use a 3 inch diameter by half-inch thick dollop of the putty and then squeezing a 3 inch long ribbon of the hardener across the top. I used a 3 inch putty knife to mix the two until the mixture was a medium pinkish color. Because the components once mixed starts to dry so quickly I do not recommend trying to do more than what is recommended at a time. Once the two components are mixed, you only have about two minutes to apply it to the area being repaired. I would also recommend doing this when the temperature is below 80°. I tried it one late afternoon and unfortunately it started to dry before I could get it on the area being patched. Because of the rapid drying time, and the area that I had to patch being somewhat large, it took a couple of days to finish the job. Once it was done, I was very pleased with the results. While the kit includes both the putty and the hardner, there was not enough hardener included with the amount of putty in the kit. If you plan on using the entire can of putty, you’re going to need to purchase additional tube of hardener, which is sold separately if needed. All in all, I am very pleased with the results. The cost of repairing the post was considerably less expensive than ripping it out and putting in a new one. I’m sure this repair will last for years to come.
