The fastest way to repair a hole in a wall is to hang a picture over it. OK,
thatís really a cover-up. Thereís really no excuse for not fixing it properly,
because Spakfilla Rapid is so fast, you can have holes filled, sanded and
painted in 30 minutes flat.
Itís ideal for dents, holes (large and small), scratches, cracks and tears on
plasterboard or solid plaster.
Step 1: Prepare by cutting away any loose paper and plaster. Remove any edges
that might show through the repair.
Step 2: Scoop out the pre-mixed Spakfilla with the plastic spatula provided, and
push it well into the hole. Smooth off the surface with the spatula and wait for
it to dry. Spakfilla Rapid doesnít shrink, so one coat should do the trick!
Step 3: Sand carefully, making sure you donít damage the surrounding wall. Itís
now ready for paint.
Selleys Spakfilla Heavy Duty
This type of Spakfilla is ideal for repairing exterior holes and cracks in
concrete, render or block walls. It can handle the weather and is so strong that
it can even be drilled and fastened into.
Apply it just like any other spakfilla. Repairs in large holes might shrink
slightly, so a second coat may be required to get a flush finish.
Kev ís Tip:
Thereís a plastic insert in
the Spakfilla pack. Donít throw it out!
Put it back in the pack when youíre finished to help keep the Spakfilla from
drying out Ė so itís ready for action next time you need it.
Selleys products are available at all good hardware stores.
