What is Wood Filler?

Wood filler is a type of product used to repair and restore damaged, decayed and deteriorated wood. It is also a product used to fill imperfections for aesthetic purposes (e.g nail holes or gouges) in wood prior to finishing. 

Wood filler saves money, time and labour – negating the need for replacement of wooden structures and products but instead offering the opportunity to restore and reuse them for long periods of time.

Wood filler is usually made up of a resin solution that hardens, which contains a combination of wood byproducts. The formula of this allows it to take a pliable form that’s relatively easy to apply to damaged wood.

Different Types of Wood Filler

There are many different types of wood filler, which have different features and benefits. Some of these include:

  • Epoxy resin wood filler
  • Two-pack wood filler
  • Ready-mixed wood filler
  • Water-based wood filler
  • Petroleum-based wood filler
  • Latex-based wood filler

Each wood filler has different qualities and can be used in different ways depending on the job. When choosing a wood filler, you need to consider the scale of the work, how long it should last and what is needed from the filler.

Epoxy Wood Filler

Epoxy wood filler should be the first choice when a filler with the ultimate structural strength is required, especially when filling wider points of damage. 

Epoxy wood fillers can be used to repair wooden products, such as doors and windows, although they can be used for various other wooden structures that are susceptible to rot. This might include benches, playgrounds or sculptures. 

When it comes to choosing a wood filler, Epoxy wood fillers come in many forms. Many of the Epoxy fillers available on the market today still contain polyester, which leaves the repair brittle and susceptible to further failures due to rot further down the line. 

The DRY FLEX® range of epoxy wood filler products from Repair Care is made with a clean Epoxy, containing zero fillers. This makes for a sustainable and durable repair designed to last the test of time.

How do you repair wood rot?

The best results come from using our DRY FLEX® resins following our 7 steps to achieving durable repairs.  You will then eliminate all of the rot and ensure a sound wood rot repair.

  • Step 1: Remove paint at least 10 millimetre from around the damaged area.
  • Step 2: Remove all decayed damaged wood using a high-speed router with a round cutter, leaving a straight shoulder with a minimum depth of 5 millimetre.  You must ensure all of the wood rot is removed.
  • Step 3: Check moisture content this must be 18% or below, then apply DRY FIX® by brushing liberally onto the bare wood allowing this to penetrate the wood for a minimum of 20 minutes.
  • Step 4: Using the EASY•Q™ double dosing gun, dispense the 2 component DRY FLEX® on to a plastic mixing plate, mix thoroughly until a homogeneous colour is reached.  Apply a thin coat onto the primed wood.
  • Step 5: Complete the repair by adding more DRY FLEX® and shaping using metal EASY•Q™ repair knives leaving a smooth finish.
  • Step 6: When the DRY FLEX® resin has completely cured, lightly sand leaving a smooth finish and a key for the decorative coating.  Any minor defects can be rectified using DRY FLEX® SF (fine surface filler).
  • Step 7: Finish in accordance with the approved paint specification.
