Can this be used on cement fiber board siding?

Hi Forrby, Yes, it can be used on fiber cement siding. If you would rather use a caulk-type filler, consider the DAP Dynaflex Ultra or Dynaflex 230 products sold by Home Depot.

will this work on bathtub trim and would you have to paint or not.This is of course inside

Answer

Thank you for posting your inquiry. DAP Platinum Patch would be appropriate for this type of project. Of note: As dissimilar materials age, one or both materials (filler, paint, prefinished trim, etc.) in direct contact, may shift in color over time. While Platinum Patch does not require the application of paint, it would certainly improve overall performance (additional product protection, color fastness/cosmetic uniformity). Should you have any questions or require further assistance, please feel free to contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477.

Will this product hold up to bond/glue a threshold to a capstone of a old foundation at an entrance, filling the void?

Asked by Tim September 29, 2020
3
Answers

I don't believe this product is intended to be a bonding agent although it may have some limited bonding capability. One alternative would be to use an exterior grade construction adhesive (HD sells at least one brand of this) to bond the threshold to the capstone and to use this DAP product to fill any remaining void that the construction adhesive doesn't fill.

can this be used on a painted concrete wall?

Asked by pookie August 25, 2020

Answers

As long as you follow the instructions on the container, you should be able to use this on a painted concrete wall. You would need to be sure the paint is bonded tight to the concrete and not peeling or flaking and that the wall does not have any movement due to extremes of heat or cold.

i used this on 2 aging stucco chimneys that were cracking and caulked several times. i did dig out any loose caulk but left most of all of it in tact. no one will fix stucco chimnies or redo them nowadays. so i did some research called dap to find out it this would be waterproof/not wash away in case it rained before i was able to paint with behr elastomeric paint. this platinum patch was recommended. anyway the patch has a fairly thick consistency. it went on easy and filled in cracks and holes. in addition i secured a peice of loose stucco that was too big of an area to remove. i patched around and over the big area few times. basically most sides of the chimney were covered in this. it patched over the caulk with ease also. it held up through every rain . attached is a pic with the paint on. i used 16 tubs of the 32 oz size. i applied it with a disposable plastic 1.5 " or 2" putty knife.

CAP Platinum Sparkling Paste - 16 oz - White. Designed for exterior home repair, adheres to surface. Works on most surfaces. Mildew resistant. Sandable after drying. Started with white paste and mixed a small portion with paint to match what I was going to repair. Then stored the colored paste in a separate air-tight container. Mixture stayed flexible for the three days I stored it. This works great when painting isn't practical like on concrete or brick. Paste stayed flexible for the duration of the fix and sandable in a few hours.

This Platinum Patch is made by" DAP", a well know manufacturer of silicone caulking and many other supplies. This is great for patching hard exterior surfaces, such as wood, metal, composite materials, PVC, vinyl and many more surfaces. It has great multi material adhesion qualities. It should be applied in 1/8" layers with a putty knife, deeper areas should be filled with 1/8" layers until smooth with the surface, allowing adequate drying time between layers. It can be sanded in 2 hours and ready for paint in 24 hours.

The white spackling paste is ideal for exterior applications due to it having a waterproof, mold & mildew resistant formula; it can also be used for interior use. Prior to using the paste, mix gently before using. For repairs deeper than 1/8 inches, apply in layers allowing drying between each application. I had some slight cracks that appeared on the exterior columns of my house. The spackling paste did an excellent job in hiding the cracks. I waited about 2 to 4 hours before I sanded and painted the cracks. Once completed I was able to clean my tools with only warm water.

I actually used it for my art sculptures. Worked great! I know it says to only apply 1/8" thin and if you need more let it dry 1st and add another layer and etc. I applied probably 1/2" to 3/4 in thickness all at once. It took longer to dry to cure, obviously but after it was hard and I sanded it, which was easy and painted it, it turned out wonderfully!

I recently used this product to patch an area of stucco outside on my front porch (see picture) and was pleased with the way this product adhered not only to the surrounding stucco, but to a silicone seal that was present at the area. The product was firm enough to hold a shape without dripping (see picture of product in container), and dried hard to the touch in roughly 1 hour at 70-degree temps. Seems like a good product. Since it seems to have good adherence qualities I am also planning to use it in my pool area to seal cracks around tile above the water-line. It’s too soon to tell just how weather resistant it is. The most difficult part about using the product was opening the plastic lid on the container, which was sealed so well I needed a small screwdriver to pry it open. This tight packaging suggests that the product won't readily dry out between uses. Cleanup was a breeze using only warm water. Worked well for me. I’d recommend it to a friend.

Dap Platinum Spackling Patch works Fantastic. I like to use Spackling Paste on my trim nail holes and on the top of baseboards. This Spackling Paste has no shrinkage I can notice. Dries pure white and no need to touch up when using white paint. It's Great to have a Spackling Paste that works Outdoors also. I'll buy the Dap Platinum from now on. Great Product.

I would buy Platinum Patch Again
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is the best filler, I ever used. It does a great job, super easy to work with. It spreads smoothly and sands very easy. I had no problems painting over the patch filler. It is the best on the market and it has become my filler of choice.
