The correct mix ratio for body filler is 98% filler and 2% hardener (50 parts filler to 1 part hardener). Body level does not level and flow as much as glaze when it is dispensed onto a mixing pallet. To achieve a 2% hardener ratio, run a straight, uniform bead of hardener across the diameter of the portion of the filler. Remember to thoroughly knead the tube of hardener before dispensing.
Do not alter hardener ratio to compensate for temperature conditions. Under-hardening results in the filler never achieving the full physical properties. This results in poor adhesion, strength and durability. Over-hardening may result in residual hardener on the sanded surface, which could react with primers and top coats.
When mixing filler, fold the hardener into the product with a plastic spreader (do not stir). Apply pressure with the spreader during the mixing and application to minimize air entrapment.
