PVC Nail Filler - No Painting


Any recommendations for a PVC nail hole filler, not to be painted? I'm thinking of using PVC glue, but would prefer something with putty consistency.

Any word on these?

Bond n Fill Trim Stick

Trim Nail eraser (Royal)?

PVC TrimWelder?

Thanks much.

That would be my first concern. I did NOT go back and check.

The one stick I have has beaten itself apart rattling around in my touchup kit, but it was still pure white.

I go on the theory that this i what the company is known for, so non-yellowing would be a priority.

Have you used Fastenmaster Cortex plugs before? No need for filler if you use them.

I haven't ever seen Nail Eraser yellow but it does pick up, and hold, dirt more than the pvc.

I use the Cortex plugs all the time, but they are expensive.

I would use a filler of my choice, I am really liking the Gardner Flex n Fill for indoors and out. Then touch it up with matching paint with a tiny brush. It will match and hold up over the years.
