Agnew’s Water Putty, the original and the best since 1929

Agnew’s Water Putty is an excellent filler for patching and leveling wood, plasterboard, cement sheet, concrete, etc. Particularly suitable if you need a hardwearing surface. Agnew’s Water Putty sets hard, adheres permanently and fills to any depth without shrinking or cracking. It can be sawn, drilled and sanded.

Agnew’s Water Putty is also ideal for Architectural and Hobby Moulding. Agnew’s Water Putty is not a flexible compound. Use only in an exterior situation if you have ensured that the substrate has a low propensity to expand and contract as the ambient temperature changes and have ensured that the Water Putty is dry and then sealed.

Agnew’s Water Putty is proudly 100% Australian owned and made since 1929.

Agnew’s Water Putty is great for repairs because it sticks and stays put. Plus, it’s easy to use, dries rock hard, and never shrinks. It fills voids completely and is ideal for wood repair and plaster patches.

Fill Holes In Wood
Agnew’s Water Putty is ideal for filling knotholes, nail holes, oversized screw holes, and other defects in wood. Leave the putty uncoloured if it is to be painted, or coloured if it is to be matched with the wood.

Filling knot/nail holes, Filling oversized screw holes, Defects in wood

Ensure that the substrate is sound (no loose  floorboards, rotted wood, loose mortar, etc.), free from dirt, oil, dust,  flaking paint or other contamination and not impregnated with a sealant. Do not prime  first. If already primed, sand and provide some keying. If applying a clear  finish to say, the punched nail holes on timber ceiling or wall cladding, to minimise the spread and need for excessive sanding you may apply a coat  first and then  ll. Any excess will then easily wipe off.

Add 3 parts  filler to 1 part water in a clean vessel and blend into a workable paste. A stiffer mix makes work easier on a vertical surface (lightly dampen surface first). A thinner mix makes work easier on a  floor with many defects.

Agnew’s Water Putty can be coloured by adding oxides, dry colour tinters, acrylic paints, etc, however too much can critically retard setting.

Press the  filler  firmly into the effect and smooth with a putty knife. Slightly over ll and after 30 minutes, scrape level or shape as required. A light wipe of a damp sponge can give a smoother finish.

The filler begins its initial set in about 20-30 minutes and cannot be effectively thinned or worked after this. In 2-3 hours the filled area can be sanded.

Agnew’s Water Putty is not a moisture barrier. If the substrate and/or Water Putty are not dry, moisture can be trapped under impervious finishes or coverings with unsightly or damaging effect. For finishes or coverings that can “breathe” allow 2-3 hours drying time. For impervious finishes allow 24 hours.
