Toupret ready mixed filler review

Updated May 18, 2024 | Posted Apr 9, 2019 | Product Reviews, Sundries | 3 comments

A good ready mixed filler that doesn’t need priming before top coating. One quality Toupret fillers seem to have is they do not flash through modern paints. The downside are the drying times!! Toupret ready mixed filler really needs to be left overnight for anything 2mm and above. So if you got the time to wait, this is what you need. Available online, or any good trade paint outlet.

Toupret Ready Mixed Filler Review


For small filling on woodwork and walls, my “go to” ready mixed filler is usually OneFill as it is nice to use. It is a lightweight ‘fluffy’ filler that is great to use on rebuilding mouldings etc with a sanding pad.

But after a few spray jobs on MDF fitted wardrobes (amongst other jobs) the biggest flaw is that the OneFill flashes like mad even after a couple of coats of primer. So, after recommendations from The Decorators Forum UK about Toupret and seeing it in my local Dulux Decorating Centre, I thought I’d give their ready mixed filler a go. I was drawn in by the “non-flashing” slogan on the tub.

But after I purchased the Toupret ready mixed filler I noticed that it is paintable in 12-24 hours, which is not ideal for a quick fix filler. I tried it out on walls and woodwork and left it to the next day. It sanded down really well and lived up to its claims of not flashing at all, I was well impressed by that. I’ve tested the drying capabilities of it on small 1-2mm dents that did dry in a couple hours which was ok, but any deeper than that then you’re looking at the next day. I think for new builds with the pinholes on the woodwork the Toupret ready mixed would be ideal.


One thing I did notice that let this product down is that using it out the tub (as you would do) after wiping it on the side stops the lid from sealing properly, so it doesn’t keep well as the top sort of hardens off a bit the next time you use it. You can buy it in a tube as well which would eliminate this issue, but cause another. You cannot return unused filler to a tube.

I’ve used it on 3 jobs so far, I am impressed but I have the OneFill onboard for drying times. The best way I would describe it is a ready mixed easyfill that doesn’t flash, sands easily, nice and smooth to use, but takes a lifetime to dry.

    Phil, have you tried Toupret Redlite? It’s a lightweight ready mixed filler that dries quickly but doesn’t flash or grin.

    Get in touch with me and I will arrange some samples along with some other Toupret products that you might not have tried yet.

      I’m never without some Redlight for last minute fills.

    I only use Toupret now and love it. I will get a pot of ready mixed to see how I get on with it as it’s a pain when you think you have finished filling and spot some lol. Also looking forward to trying out the redlight filler.
