Hand filling

Handspackling av en gipsvägg


Hand filling is a traditional filling method and is effective when you have to apply and smooth the filler on small areas. The filler should be applied in several thin layers. The drying time is shortened and strength increases compared with applying one single thick layer. It usually requires at least two applications, as the material shrinks a little when it dries. As always, it is a question of adapting the choice of material to the substrate, for example wet room filler in bathrooms.

Dalapro Hand Filler is available in 200 ml and 400 ml tubes, 500 ml cans, and 3 litre and 10 litre buckets. The tubes and cans are suitable for small jobs when you don’t want to carry around a 10 litre bucket.

Hand filler is available for various substrates and purposes. All-round is suitable for most. Low shrinkage is suitable for concrete. Adhesive filler is suitable for corners and joints. Wet room filler is a requirement for wet rooms.

Wood filler is suitable for woodwork, for example around windows and doors. There is also outdoor filler and various repair fillers. There is also a special design filler that provides a concrete-like surface that you can seal with varnish instead of painting over it.

GOOD TO KNOW
When applying filler by hand, two putty knives of different sizes will often be used. For fine smoothing, the putty knives should be around 35 or 45 cm wide. For joint filling, putty knives that are around 15/20 or 25/30 cm wide are just right.
