Filler & Putty for smooth surfaces in home improvement

Filling compounds can be used in various areas. 

What is putty made of?

Putty consists of the three basic ingredients plaster, cement and synthetic resin. This results in a mushy mixture. Putty is intended for closing cracks and holes or other unevenness and is therefore suitable for extensive use. A distinction is also made between flowable and stable compound. Levelling compound is used for smoothing and levelling over a wide area. The stable compound is suitable for the repair and filling of cracks, damaged areas and holes. The compound is applied with a spatula and smoothed after curing.

Differences

Putty can be bought as a finished product or mixed by yourself. This is stirred with water and mixed. These types of mass also dry at different rates, resulting in different surface textures. In addition, a distinction is made between synthetic resin-bound, plaster-bound and cement-bound masses.

Synthetic resin-bonded filler compound

is regarded as an all-rounder among the fillers. It is suitable for both exterior and interior use and for wood, mineral substrates and metal. Synthetic resin-bonded fillers are already mixed and plastic is finely dispersed in them as a binding agent.

Plaster-bonded filler

is considered the best choice for indoor use. Due to its pH-neutrality it is suitable for all materials and does not cause discolouration when wallpapering later.

Cement-bound filler

is considered the choice for floors, wet rooms and outdoor areas. Because moisture is no problem for this type of filler.
