Impossible to smoothly apply the filler on a wood. I used different types of puddy knives but getting the surface to smooth out is an extra job on it’s own. And the can starts to dry immediately up on opening it. Horrible product!

Thank you for posting your feedback. We're sorry to see your low star review on DAP Plastic Wood Professional Wood Filler. DAP Plastic Wood Solvent Professional Wood Filler formula is specifically designed for fast drying characteristics, as indicated on the product label and supporting product literature: "Dries in approximately 15 minutes depending on depth of fill". Dry time/working can be significantly impacted (shortened) by higher ambient air and/or application substrate temperatures. Based on the feedback that you provided, it would appear that DAP Plastic Wood All-Purpose Wood Filler or DAP Plastic Wood-X Stainable Wood Filler with DryDex Dry Time Indicator would be more in line with your needs/preferences. These latex (water based) formulas offer more working time, clean up with water and have lower odor, when compared to the traditional solvent-based Plastic Wood formula. Should you have any additional questions or require further assistance, please contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477.

Upon opening the container was half way filled. I feel like I got ripped off. Overall the product worked just fine the amount you get is misleading.
Response from DAPProductExpertDec 14, 2020
Thank you for posting your review. The DAP Plastic Wood Professional Wood Filler is filled by weight (NET WT.), not by volume (fl. oz.). To properly measure the fill rate of this product, the use of a scale would be required. Relative to the size of the plastic package, the observed fill rate that you describe would be considered normal for this product. Should you have any additional questions or require further assistance, please contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477.

can is only half full
It works but they misrepresent how much you are buying. Basically doubles the price.

Front porch columns where the bases had rotten out after 25 years needed restoration. DAP Plastic Wood added in the restoration of the rotten bases. Not the decorative molding is still left to be done.

When I purchased the Plastic Wood, the opening was on the bottom. When I opened it, it was only 2/3 full. The can is deceptive.

Thank you for posting your inquiry. The DAP Plastic Wood Solvent Professional Wood Filler is a solvent-based formula and is specifically designed for fast drying characteristics. As indicated on the product label: "Allow to dry thoroughly before sanding or finishing. Dries in as little as 15 minutes for shallow, low volume fills and 2-24 hours in larger volume fills ¼” deep and over. Sand with medium sandpaper (100 grit). For larger and deeper repairs, apply two or more thin layers, allowing wood filler to dry between applications. Overfill to allow for settling and sanding. Of note: Dry time/working can be significantly impacted (shortened) by higher ambient air and/or application substrate temperatures.

This product makes it possible to reconstruct wood problems areas. I reconstructed a window seal that had a major area of rotten wood. After painting the window seal is very presentable. I believe in this product and highly recommend for any wood filling situations.
Do not go by the size of the can, After opening I realized it was only <1/2 full. It dries as you are applying it, so take a small amount out and reseal can. It does the job, just not sure I would spend that much again for 1/2 a can and the amount lost to waste from drying too quickly.

I have used this product with good results on exterior applications. I sanded it and painted it with no problems. But due to the fact that this stuff uses acetone as its base solvent, you must have some acetone handy when using this so that you can add a little to the container at times (mix it thoroughly!) in order to keep it from drying up. You must also work rather quickly due to how fast the acetone evaporates. And because it dries so quickly, it is difficult to spread as smooth as I would have liked resulting in more effort needed to sand it. I would recommend this product because it does work, but make sure you have some acetone to add, and also try to do it on a cooler day.
