    Thai Filler - Wall Filler - Polyfilla

    So you got a small hole to fill or maybe a gaping chasm, lets have a look at what is available in Thailand.

    Now I have never seen the old polyfilla here and have no idea why, that was great stuff that would botch any job, old rotten window frames or anything, so what we got here in Thailand, we got plaster, grout, white cement, ordinary cement, and bosny wall putty, so lets start with bosny wall putty.



    Now this comes ready mixed with a little plastic spreader, great for outside work as it sets off like cement so no future problems, this does have a few bad points though, anything over 5mm deep and you will get sagging before it sets off, so you got to sand down again and re apply to fill the low points, takes a real long time to set in Thailand, I mean hours upon hours, really isn't that easy to sand, but at 40baht per tub it is cheap.

    Perfect for patching large dents in cars you plan to get rid of really fast.

    plaster

    gypsum. jointing plaster. i use it for everything around the house. filler wise, goes off well dry's quick. rubs down easy, shrinks a little if applied to much at a time, but can reapply easy, patience. rub down after, the best finnish you'll get.

    I thoroughly agree Lob. I've had a half bag left over from the house build. I use it for all the indoor filling also.

    Thai tile grout

    So they have just finished your new bathroom and all the fittings are in the wrong place, ie shower head set for someone shorter than 5 foot, bum gun unreachable from the toilet, so you redo all your markings for where you want the fittings and they re drill all the holes and do it properly the second time, but of course your left with a load of holes now.

    Introducing tile grout:



    15 to 25baht per 1 kilo bag, comes in many colors, with white being the cheapest, mix with water into a thick paste and fill all those holes. Once it starts setting off give it a quick wipe over with a slightly damp sponge to clean the surrounding area and smooth where the hole was.
