    Big Benefits for Smaller Auto Repairs
    Applied directly from its easy dispensing tube, Bondo® Glazing & Spot Putty is formulated for quality auto body repairs in less time. Its 1-part nitrocellulose formula eliminates mixing and helps to keep small vehicle repairs simple, efficient and on schedule. It is non-staining, so it won't affect the color of paint or finishes around the repair area. It also shrinks very little over time, helping to ensure lasting repairs without rework.

    This spot and glazing putty is ideal for spot repairs and other small repairs to auto body panels. Use it for filling pinholes in body filler as well as for covering minor sand scratches, and more on metal, fiberglass and wood as well as sanded and primed or sanded and painted surfaces.

    About the 3M™ Body Repair System
    Even a small repair can seem complex at first. So 3M's Body Repair System simplifies the entire automotive body repair process by dividing it into four stages:

    • Stage 1 — Prepare. This stage includes pulling dents, removal of paint and rust and efficient, effective masking of the area.
    • Stage 2 — Fill. This stage involves patching holes with reinforced filler and smoothing and shaping filler before painting.
    • Stage 3 — Paint. This stage includes painting the area and blending and smoothing primer and paint.
    • Stage 4 — Finish. The final stage for showroom-grade results: removing small defects, sealing and polishing clear coats and other painted surfaces.

    3M supplies premium products such as abrasives, tapes, body fillers and tools for every stage. This system helps you work easily, efficiently and successfully across the entire body repair process.

    Bringing Science to the Art of Auto Body Repair
    As a brand of 3M, Bondo® is well known among collision repair professionals and others who are committed to helping restore the beauty and value to your automobiles. This spot and glazing putty is another way that 3M applies science to life — and helps you rediscover the excitement of owning and operating like-new vehicles.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Putty badly separated in tube I use 3M Products regularly and am a huge fan of their Accuspray spray guns. Regarding this product (glazing and spot putty) I have been getting less than acceptable results due primarily to the product's "separation" in tube. No amount of kneeding the tube beforehand seems to help. Apparently it has either a shelf life issue or other problem.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible product! Even in cool weather, drying time is so short there is not nearly enough time for spreading and smoothing the application. As a result, more layers, finish sanding, and labor are required.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from separated, bought one day ago, was separated so bad that kneeding the tube would not mix correctly. Manufacturer needs to put a shelf life date on packaging to prevent out dated products from being sold to consumers.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Zero application spec's or instructions No specs or instructions whatsoever, temp for use..., bake temps... Otherwise SEEMS to be a good product Not sure we're using it for correct application.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Spot Repair Product I restore old outboard motors as a hobby and use 3M Bondo Glazing & Spot Putty for patching and filling minor chips, dings, dents and scratches on both metal and fiberglass surfaces. This putty is very workable and the quick drying times allow me to keep my paint jobs moving.
