  • What are the different types of "masilya"?

    Which ones for wood, concrete, metal, etc?

    I'm new to painting and I'm confused as to what type of "masilya" to use. Never knew there were so many kinds.

    ACRYTEX CAST- based on the website of Boysen, I tried using this on outdoor concrete wall. However my painter found it too "thin". He opted to use PATCHING COMPUND mixed in the paint that we were using. Is this a common practice?

    GLAZING PUTTY- again based o the website of Boysen, I wanted to use this for wood that we were coating with enamel. However, I have come across 3 painters already who did not want to use it because it takes too long to dry. Instead:

    1 of those painters said that he prefers PATCHING COMPOUND mixed with paint (again). Although I was corrected by 1 hardware shop, who said that for wood I should use CALSOMINE?, which is also a powder, much like patching compound, but for wood.

    Another painter told me that he prefers LACQUER PUTTY because it easily dries. I'm just worried about mixing lacquer with enamel. He has supposedly done it for many years now without a problem.

    POLITUFF- Most, if not all of the painters I have met use this. I guess this is common for deep dents?

    I'm sure I'm missing a lot more. Kindly put your inputs here and please let us know which MYTHS are true & false! Hehe!

    MOST OLD SCHOOL PAINTERS PREFER THE LATEX WITH PATCHING COMPOUND METHOD, IT IS ESSENTIALLY OK BUT I STILL PREFER ACRYTEX CAST FOR EXTERIOR USE. JUST USE ACRYTEX PRIMER, WILL WORK FOR ACRYTEX TOP COAT AND REGULAR LATEX PAINT.

    GLAZING PUTTY- again based o the website of Boysen, I wanted to use this for wood that we were coating with enamel. However, I have come across 3 painters already who did not want to use it because it takes too long to dry. Instead:

    TRUE, MOST PAINTERS HATE IT.

    1 of those painters said that he prefers PATCHING COMPOUND mixed with paint (again). Although I was corrected by 1 hardware shop, who said that for wood I should use CALSOMINE?, which is also a powder, much like patching compound, but for wood.

    AGAIN THIS IS COMMON PRACTICE, YOU CAN ALSO USE GYPSUM PUTTY FOR WOOD NOT SUBJECT TO HEAVY USE.

    Another painter told me that he prefers LACQUER PUTTY because it easily dries. I'm just worried about mixing lacquer with enamel. He has supposedly done it for many years now without a problem.

    LACQUER PUTTY IS SAFE FOR ENAMEL PAINTS AS LONG AS IT IS FULLY CURED. YOU CAN ALSO MIX LACQUER PUTTY WITH YELLOW ALMAGRI POWDER FOR MORE BODIED PUTTY APPLICATION. VALSPAR PUTTY IS ALSO USED IN WOOD

    POLITUFF- Most, if not all of the painters I have met use this. I guess this is common for deep dents?

    THIS PUTTY IS MOST USED....FOR CARS, JOINTS, FILLER, ETC.

    HOPE THIS HELPS....THIS IS BASED FROM MY ACTUAL EXPERIENCE BUT I AM NOT SAYING THAT IT IS GOSPEL TRUTH.

        Hey zero bro,

        Try reading the reply of opzuk4X4 # 2 dated 2-21-09, regarding polituff, and you'll get some idea on what kind of masilya is used for metal sheets, used on body of cars. I presume your gate is made up of GI pipe frames with mild steel plates gauges 15, 16 or 18 thick welded on the main frame.

            Using polituff gaano po katagal bago matotally madry?
            Normal lang po ba na ilang oras na hindi pa rin masyado matigas? may nadikit pa rin kasi sa daliri ko kapag hinawakan ko.

              Ano ba pinagkaiba ng BORAL at patching compound? Yan kasi pinabili ng karpintero nung nagparenovate kami. Yung kisame ginawang hardiflex at yung pader minasilyahan bago pinturahan. Di ko alam kung saan nya ginamit yang boral at patching compound. Nagpabili din sya ng mortabond skimcoat, yan yung nakita kong pinang masilya sa pader para kuminis. Ngayon nagpabili ako ng patching compound para pantapal sa joints ng kisame namin. Sinubukan ko yung patching compound ihalo sa latex pero di sya nagiging parang clay na pwedeng ipangtapal sa mga joints. Para syang evaporated milk nung haluan ng latex paint. Kapag dinagdagan ko pa ng patching compound nagiging dry na sya imbis na maging parang clay na pwedeng imasilya sa mga joints. Di ko alam kung ano ginamit ng karpintero para tapalan yung mga joints sa hardiflex at malaking cracks sa pader. Bumili din ako ng boysen masonry putty. Sinubukan ko pantapal pero nung nadry na sya numinipis sya kaya di pede pangtapal. Pampakinis lang yata yang boysen 7311.
