Acrylic filler (often referred to as decorators caulk, painters caulk or decorators acrylic) is a water-based economical and environmentally friendly sealing and filling material.

Depending on which brand is selected, there are many different specialised acrylic fillers suitable for different tasks: some for porous surfaces such as brick, wood, plasterboard, windows and doors and some others are for use where fire resistance or sound insulation is required.
