6.0 VERSATILE FOAM - DO-IT-YOURSELF - DIY TIPS

"Great Stuff" is a brand name insulating, sealing, and adhesive foam that comes in a pressurized can. Available at many building supply and hardware store, it can be used for a variety of purposes. The label on the can claims that it "fills, seals, insulates, stops drafts and pests."

Because it starts out as a liquid it "expands to take the shape of cracks and voids forming a permanent air tight, water proof bond to wood, metal, masonry, glass and most plastics." You should only fill a hole with 50% foam. It will then expand to fill the area.

You can cut heating costs by sealing air holes around electric outlets and plumbing. With a little imagination, you can come up with dozens of uses.

For example, some people have used it to fill rusty areas on automobiles and trucks. It can be cut, sanded and painted.

I have used this product for over five years. Please read the directions and try out a little on a piece of newspaper before you get serious. If you use too much foam inside a closed cavity, the pressure of the foam may cause some warping.
