Not impressed. I wouldn't use it again
Just like others after staining with full colored stain it bubbled. I peeled it off and am restaining. I worked my but off to hide cracks in my deck and a week later the paste surfaced. Now I'm back to running another coat of stain over the top hoping it covers. Find a different product if your looking for something to cover exterior cracks.

Thank you for posting your feedback. We're sorry to see your low star review on DAP Plastic Wood-X. The issue that you describe ("bubbling" or loss of coating adhesion) can result from a number of conditions, including: application out of temperature range, insufficient dry time (of the filler) prior to coating application, or exposure to large temperature changes prior to the coating reaching full performance. Because you did not provide any details regarding your experience, it is difficult to provide you with a more detailed reply or product usage guidance. Should wish to provide these details, so that we can provide you with more specific product usage guidance or to recommend a more appropriate product, please feel free to contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477.

    This is no good to use outside. Eventually hardens but when it rains gets soft again.

    Thank you for posting your feedback. We're sorry to see your low star review on DAP Plastic Wood-X All Purpose Wood Filler. Plastic Wood (All Versions) is not designed or recommended for use as a "stand alone" product. As indicated on the product package label and supporting product literature: "Exterior applications must be coated with latex or oil-based paint or solid color stain”. Because you did not provide any background regarding your project, application technique or application conditions, it is difficult to provide a more detailed response or specific application guidance in this format. 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 experience and offer some additional product application guidance.

    It's a good wood filler. Grainy, absorbs stain very well (almost too well for me) . Not very "plastic" feeling to me. It can be wiped off with a wet washcloth when dry. I was hoping for something more like bondo I think

    It was easy to apply, dries quickly and the color tone is a great indicator to start sanding. Painted surface looked great.

    Thank you for posting your feedback. We're sorry to see your low star review regarding DAP Plastic Wood-X All-Purpose Latex Wood Filler. Based on your commentary indicating: "it was crumbling when opened", it would appear to indicate that the product is aged/beyond its 12 month shelf life (newly purchased may not necessarily be of recent manufacture). Providing that the filler is still pliable, a small volume of water may be added to until a smooth/even texture/consistency is achieved (original texture when new/fresh). If that procedure is not effective, it typically indicates that the product is no longer viable/usable. Should you have any additional questions or require further assistance, please contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477. If you would like to verify the age of the material, when calling in please be sure to have the package available, as we will need the production code printed on the package in order to determine the date of manufacture.

    Thank you for posting your feedback. We're sorry to see your low star review on DAP Plastic Wood-X. When "fresh", the DAP Plasitc Wood-X product should appear as a bright/deep pink color. As the product ages, the intensity of the bright pink color will fade to a light grey/purple tone. This color change is an indicator that the product is well beyond shelf life. At this age, the product will likely be thicker/dryer and more difficult to spread. This does not necessarily mean that the product is unusable, however, the benefit the dry time indicator provides will be reduced and/or lost. 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, when calling in, please have the product package available, as we will need to collect production information from it.

    Love it ..Should have bought more .so far excellent
    Fluffy, smooth ,easy application, no fumes, water clean up… should have bought a larger container cuz I,m going to use it alot but in reading wood filler reviews elsewhere was warned to not buy too much as wood filler apparently hardens in the container faster than some other types of fillers. I put Saran Wrap plastic over it to displace air & to keep it moist in the container,just in case to prevent hardening. this didn’t get top reviews from a few comparison video sites ..but ,well , for all my purposes ..this is going to be my “go to” wood filler from now on. , way better than a squeeze tube of something else I bought prior .it’s easy to manipulate with finger or tool. Minimal to no sanding required ..smooth …love it so far .oh yes the color change is a helpful timing tool too.texture is fab.

      Easy to work with, I used it to fill the carpenter bees holes where they were nesting. They ate right through it but then I think the wood filler was what actually killed them, Because the next day after eating the stuff out of the holes, they all disappeared.

      I was very skeptical at first, but this product really works! I made sure the cracks were dug out at least a quarter inch deep, this has held up so well. I definitely will use this again and I highly recommend it.
