Q:Can this be used to fill in nail holes on mdf paneling?
by|Jan 23, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Thank you for posting your inquiry. DAP Plastic Wood Professional Wood Filler can be used on most wood and wood-based products. Given that MDF, particleboard and similar engineered wood products can often times be unstable (friable, prone to flake/crumble), a test application to verify acceptable adhesion/performance would be recommended. Should you have any additional questions or require further assistance, please feel free to contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477.

      Q:Can this product be used to fill holes created by screws that went to deep in a redwood deck?
      by|Sep 18, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for posting your inquiry on DAP Plastic Wood Professional Wood Filler. While the product can be used for the application as described (posts, railings etc.) we would not recommend it for use on the floor of the deck as this is a hard setting product, and it cannot accommodate joint movement that would be present in such an application. At your convenience, please contact DAP's Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477 so that we can obtain some additional information regarding your project and to provide you with more specific usage guidance or to recommend an alternate product/repair process.

          Quality has declined
          I have used this product for 15 years and have always been satisfied with it. I would drive across town to find it if the local store was out, but the last 2 cans I have bought exploded and dried out. I have always closed the lid properly and stored upside down, as directed. After one can exploded and dried out, I went and bought another. The same thing just happened again this week. It's far too expensive to buy another if all I am getting is a few uses per can. I will attach a picture. Something had happened to the formula and I will not be using it again.

            Understand Its Uses
            I buy the 16 oz can; it's a better deal than the smaller sizes. To prevent drying out, I add acetone regularly and try to keep the can covered between every dip into it. When filling deeper holes, I'll push a plastic straw into the filler, then squeeze it in from there. Makes fast work and keeps it from getting all over the surrounding surface. (This is cheaper than and avoids the problems of the DAP squeeze tube). Not as strong as 2-part epoxy-based fillers, but does stain better.

              DAP Plastic Wood works great on my old cedar fence. With a little sanding and a fresh coat of stain and sealer, it looks good as new.

              Did not work for my purpose
              I used this to fill countersink holes in mdf. This stuf is toxic! Use it outside or in well ventilated space. It dries FAST. So keep the lid on ad work fast. It applies very dry and chunky, you have mere moments to work with it. After sanding it came out in chunks and is not what I would call "sandable"

              Thank you for posting your feedback. The DAP Plastic Wood Solvent Professional Wood Filler is a solvent-based formula and was specifically designed for fast drying characteristics. As indicated on the product label: "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. DAP Plastic Wood Solvent Professional Wood Filler is a solvent-based formula, accordingly, it carries additional warnings and cautions on the product package label indicating: “Contains: Acetone, n-butyl acetate and isopropyl alcohol. Vapor may ignite explosively. Vapors may cause flash fire. Do not smoke. Keep away from heat, sparks and flames. May cause eye, skin, nose and throat irritation. May cause dizziness, headache or nausea. Use in a well-ventilated area. Ensure fresh air entry. Do not get on skin or in eyes.” Based on your commentary, it would appear that the acrylic-latex (water-based) DAP Plastic Wood All Purpose Wood Filler or the DAP Plastic Wood-X All Purpose Wood Filler with DryDex Dry Time Indicator formulas would be more in line with your preferences.

                Worked great and stained great!
                I bought this DAP to fill brad holes and miter gaps on a shelf I built for the kitchen wall. It was a pine board shelf to be stained natural. I bought the natural color filler and it worked perfect. It drys quickly so you need to work fast forcing it into the holes and gaps. It sanded great and more importantly it stained great and almost imperceivable where the holes were. The mitre joints look perfect. I only used a little so we’ll see how long the rest lasts in the tube.

                Decent Filler but Don't Expect it Take Stain
                As a filler this material will dry/cure to a hard sandable finish. However, it does not take stain well. In my situation I was using it to fill a gouge in a table top. When I tried to stain the table top with a red mahogany stain it stayed the creamy color of the cured resin rather than taking on the color of the stain. For this reason, I would not use this product again.

                Thank you for posting your feedback. We're sorry to see your low star review on DAP Plastic Wood Solvent Professional Wood Filler. As indicated on the product package label and supporting product literature: "2. Match wood filler color to finished wood. Test wood filler, stain and finish combination on a small area first to ensure desired stain color. 3. If wood is to be stained, stain before filling with wood filler. Then use stain to develop desired final finish. Please follow stain manufacturer’s instructions for application." Based on your commentary: "When I tried to stain the table top with a red mahogany stain it stayed the creamy color of the cured resin rather than taking on the color of the stain.", it would appear the referenced application guidance was not followed. Staining a “natural” color wood filler to a dark color such as "mahogany" would not likely be possible without the use of more specialized stans or pre-tinting the filler. At your convenience, please contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477 so that we can obtain some additional information from you about your project/application and to offer some additional finishing guidance and/or to suggest a more appropriate wood filler.

                Doesn't shrink, reconstitutes with acetone
                Been using this product for years and it has always served me well. From most of the reviews I'm going to chalk it up to user error and not product quality. If used to fill large holes or deep cracks, best practice is to add in thin layers until built up. Using large amounts at once will cause it to shrink, compromising the bond leading to failure. Stop blaming others from your own ignorance and or incompetence.

                  terrible product
                  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!
