APPLICATION AND USE

Preparation

BARE WOOD/FIBERGLASS: Surfaces must be dry and free or dirt, oil, grease, paint, sanding residue or other contaminants. Where possible, abrade surface with coarse sandpaper or emery cloth. Clean with Special Thinner 216.

Method Work material into all voids, on very wide or deep seams a second application may be necessary. Try to achieve a smooth, fair patch. Apply to a maximum depth of 1/8 of an inch.

Hints

Thinning: Do not thin.

Cleaner: Special Thinner 216.

Other: To avoid flat spots when applying and sanding fillers on curved surfaces, use a spreader and sanding board that is longer than the width of the area by half as much again. For screw holes and small repair areas, over fill the area slightly to allow you to sand back to a flush finish.

Some Important Points No matter how smooth a finish you have achieved, when filling or fairing, all fillers must be sanded before overcoating to ensure good adhesion. Product temperature should be minimum 10 C/50 F and maximum 29 C/85 F. Ambient temperature should be minimum 10 C/50 F and maximum 35 C/95 F. Substrate temperature should be minimum 10 C/50 F and maximum 29 C/85 F.

Compatibility/Substrates Use on clean, dry, sanded bare wood or fiberglass surfaces only. Do not apply over painted surfaces. Only use with single part primers and finishes.

        Been using the stuff for years on full size boats. Thought I'd try it on something a little smaller. Product did the job admirably as always.

        Hard to spread but did the job. Didn't shrink much so it made the repairs faster. Overall a good product...keep it warm for best results.

            Comments about Interlux Surfacing Putty:

            It's a one part product and dries quickly, so it's great when you need speed. However, in windy weather it also begins to dry out while still in the can. I'd prefer that it be slightly wetter or dry slightly slower.
