Wow people...I am sure glad this isnt a discussion on what is the best lead blend for doing body work. For God,s sake...it just body filler, and you pay for what you get!

I don't know if you do any fiberglass work, but most resins are what they call "air-inhibited". The reason for that is so you can add more resin on top without sanding... and it will bond chemically.

Body fillers use a fiberglass-type resin with filler added. I suspect they all have a surface that dries more slowly for exactly the same reason.

I haven't used all brands (obviously) but the difference may be that some are prone to dry more slowly, due to differences in the formulas. Cold weather, of course, would slow it down even more.

If it's a small area, you might try a heat lamp... but don't get it too hot!

Over Five day's at 90* is a long time to sit and wait... I wonder how many more days it will take...


The reason you can glass over that glass ,,Is because it doesn't have wax added..The one with the wax added you will have to sand in between layers..

I use body fillers every day...in fact we have been tring different ones because it seems the formulas seem to be changing as the rage I used years ago acted tolaly different than the one I buy now. I find that most of the fillers stay somewhat tacky untill you cut the top layer. Yes it clogs paper. The thing that I noticed is the different brands do it differently. Now if you dont mix up the filler before you add hardener you will have some problems drying also.I put mine on a shaker then let it settle. Metal glaze is also bad for tackyness after drying. By the way people, 3m owns evercoat so dont think your getting something different with evercoat products!!As far as fiberglass resin goes..it wont cure if there is oxygen present hence the wax additive if your not going over it again with glass.

Buy Evercoat and you won't have a problem. Don't think it's just the date, move on up to Evercoat.
