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.

Customer Reviews
Bondo® Glazing & Spot Putty is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, super easy to use This is my go to filler for spot repairs and filling deep gouges or smoothing out 3D models. No mixing means it’s easy to apply and it dries very quickly so parts can be sanded and painted without a long wait. If applied fairly thin and rubbed on, it will dry in just minutes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works good on ABS This works well. I am currently using a tube that was sitting in my toolbox for over 6 years and it works fine. There was some initial clear liquid at the start of the tube but I just squeezed it out and discarded it and after that it is very homogenous. I am using it to fill and smooth seams between parts glued together in the making of ABS boat hulls and I find it works very well for this application. It adheres to ABS very well and has a very good combination of firmness while remaining very sandable. I am very happy with the results. It does dry very quickly but I think that is a good feature of this product. It also does not dry out in the tube after being opened and then sitting for long periods of time between uses. I am actually online to purchase more of it and decided to leave a review while I'm here just because it has helped me achieve very nice professional looking results with my projects.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great for pinholes or minor scratches I’ve mainly used this product to get out fine scratches over body filler and to fill in pinholes and paint imperfections. Works great but you must work very fast. One swipe and it is already hardening. As for the separating, I find every tube did this but if you knead it and squeeze out the initial thin liquid, the rest seems fine. I used a tube that sat in my toolbox unopened for over a year and it was ok.

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.
