I use the solvent based in my acoustic drum building. I can drill through it, sets fast and dries very hard. I keep acetone on hand to keep it pliable and for clean up. By far the best product on the market. Takes stain well and sands very nicely. Extremely volatile, so keep it well ventilated or use a good mask

Today I bought a tube of this to use to fill some cracks in my deck. As I squeezed the tube, it basically blew up in my hand. It was of no use. I bought the same product about a month ago and it was fine. A year or so ago, I tried the same product in a can. It was dry off the shelf. Years ago, this was a reliable product. Not so much so now it seems.

You also used to be able to get, if I recall correctly, a decent sized tube of the product. All I can find now is around 2 oz tubes.

DAP Plastic Wood works wonders!!!

By J. Scot

from USA

About Me Professional

Pros

  • Cures quickly & sands beautifully

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Entertainment industry - prop & set construction

    Comments about Plasticwood 4 Oz. Pine Wood Filler (21404):

    I use DAP Plastic Wood wood filler all the time for building props and set pieces in the entertainment industry. Many of the negative reviews I've seen here are based on not understanding the product or how to properly use it. Used correctly, this stuff is fantastic! It cures quickly, sands beautifully, and takes paint with ease. Thanks, DAP, for producing a terrific and reliable product. Keep up the good work!!!

    (Oh, and for those complaining about the can being 'half empty'... that's how it's supposed to be! The space is for mixing/thinning with acetone and adding color.)

    Comments about Plasticwood 4 Oz. Pine Wood Filler (21404):

    Bought a can of this stuff. Big air pocket in the center and the can was half full. Stuff was difficult to spread, dried within a matter of seconds and flaked everywhere. Leave a lid off a jar of peanut butter for a few days and try to spread it and you'll get the experience of what working with this product is like.

                DAP...if the tube is not working for so many of us, you have a packaging problem. If you think it is b/c is old product, put a "use by" date on the packaging. I just bought some at Ace, used a tiny bit one day, then the next day, the bottom of tube broke open...a mess.

                If you want your customers to buy your product with a good degree of satisfaction, you need to figure out how to perform right in their homes/business...not make a mess and waste our time.

                  The product works well if you follow the directions carefully. Have some acetone, for thinning, on hand. Use the tube only once; there's no way to thin the product in the tube. The product dries out fast and works best if the consistency is close to that of peanut butter. Keep in mind: a thin coat dries in an hour or less, but a coat too thick, greater than a quarter inch, takes a very long time, sometimes days. When applied carefully, the product is strong, finishes nicely, blends nicely, and takes paint well.

                            Others hate the tube, but I thought it was fine. The directions say to knead it prior to use, which is a must. Before cutting the tip, I threw it in the microwave for 10 seconds -- probably not recommended, but it worked perfectly for me!

                            Before using the tube, I read the previous reviews on how bad the tube was. I had my $5 invested in it already, so I learned from your experiences. I wrapped the tube in a plastic bag and taped around the top of it, but didn't need to do this since the tube never leaked. I punctured the tube with the cap and then used a ten-penny nail to widen the opening. I pushed the nail through the crusty 1/3 of the tube to the softer middle. Then I applied the product, squeezing (hard) from the bottom of the tube, to force the semi-dry compound into the hole. After a while, some liquid came out with the compound, and I pressed the liquid into the compound with a putty knife, to moisten it. Too much work to fill a little break-away in the wood. But the product is drying satisfactorily now, and I expect to be able to drill the screw-holes in tomorrow, and finish the project. -- My advice: The product is great, but the tube is too difficult to use. Avoid the aggravation by buying the little can and applying the product with a putty knife.

                                I just bought this last week and opened it tonight. The product coming out of the end of the tube was all dried up and crumbled. I started rolling up the end of the tube thinking it was just think and then the creased end broke and more liquidy product started coming out. What a waste !

                                    I have used Plastic wood for the last few years and have had great success with it. I typically buy the small metal container but this time I chose to purchase the squeeze tube. BAD IDEA. I have had the same experience as other posters below. The product at the top of the tube was really gritty and half dry. I squeezed about 1/2" of product out of the tube and "POP" the entire bottom of the tube blew out. I had a giant glob of plastic wood sitting on my hardwood floors (wiped right up, so not a big deal, but if I had been on the carpet portion of the floor it would have been a mess). I ended up squeezing the entire tube worth of product out through the bottom into a plastic dish and completing my project, but there was no saving what was left and my project timeline got extremely condensed.

                                    Great product but DAP needs to do some serious work on the squeeze tube packaging.

                                      Used the product which comes in a small metal can. Works just fine applied with a putty knife. I found the walnut color matches the teak in the interior of my boat quite well.

                                              The small tube is a joke. When I opened it, it was a bit dry and barely squeezable. As I squeezed more, the crimped end blew up. Initially it was liquid but started drying up. What I could use of it, it was more usable out of the burst end. Not a good product or container.

                                                  simple patching of nail gun holes. While squeezing the product from the tube , as others have noted, the crimped end burst open. After using probably 2% of the product, the rest is useless. Expect way better from DAP. Apparently this is a common problem. Will warn off friends.

                                                  Ok so i sanded and applied my 2nd layer sanded again after just an hour and added a little in the divets i let that dry again an hour and sanded...pics below
                                                  This piece i used it on is 1950's and shabby chic'd no need for it to absolutely flawless (justifying)....however i was able to build the bottom and fill in this cavity ...the big chunk of wood missing that made this piece ugly is now in the past...just need to do a little more sanding, chalk painting and its as good as the rest of the original wood....smooth as a babys butt :)

                                                            I am using this to repair missing laminate on dorm room doors. I did add some acetone to make it more pliable and easier to spread, I am applying it in thin layers, sand smooth and reapply to get desired thickness. So far I am very content with this product, it also helps to apply it to a clean dry surface, after all it is meant to bond to wood.

                                                              I had to match some laminate flooring and the match wasn't perfect so there were some gaps to fill. I filled the gaps with your plastic wood and some of the filling came out after a few days and what was left crumbled. Very unhappy with the results.

                                                                I use the solvent based in my acoustic drum building. I can drill through it, sets fast and dries very hard. I keep acetone on hand to keep it pliable and for clean up. By far the best product on the market. Takes stain well and sands very nicely. Extremely volatile, so keep it well ventilated or use a good mask

                                                                  This is my second tube. The first was a liquid, or so I thought. I used it to fill in hardware holes, but as I got half way down the tube, the product was really dry. It appears as though the liquid was supposed to be mixed in with the dry material, however, it must have separated while in the store shelf. I kneaded the product before use too, but I guess that didn't work. I just purchased a second tube this morning. Began working on my project, kneaded the tube, pressed the product into the nail hole, and it burst open from the top, aiming for my forehead and hair. I'm just glad it didn't get in my eyes. It's too bad because this product is exactly what I need! Stainable, durable and can be screwed again after it dries. I will give it one more try, but first I will return it back to the store.
