Dryflex has a fast processing time. If the repair is done properly, you can paint the surface after only 4 hours. Dryflex has many properties. I’m going to name them here next.

You can permanently repair damaged wood or rot in wood, furniture, frames, doors, etc. You can also use Dryflex for bonding and filling cracks, joints, knots and open connections. Another property that Dryflex has is the restoration of wooden structures. Of course, the processing time depends on the temperature and humidity. We assume here 20 degrees Celsius and a relative humidity of 65%. You also do not need to prime beforehand and you can apply Dryflex directly to bare wood. With presto putty you must apply a primer before that time. Dryflex 4 can be used in all 4 seasons. You do have to purchase a separate dosing gun for this. Dryflex 4 consists of 2 tubes. One for putty and one for hardener. When you apply a layer, make sure you mix just enough for the paste to turn a color. You can mix the repair paste with a modeling knife. If you have applied too much Dryflex, remove it immediately. Once the repair paste has cured, you should sand it down before applying a coat of paint. I hope you will use this product. You will see that this is very easy and fast. If you have any questions or suggestions let me know by leaving a comment below this article.
