Use this to seal recess cans voids. The recess can manufacture did not do good enough job with this.

Duct seal is ideal for damping the ringing in some metal horns. It can be molded into the bell ends and one block is enough to completely damp ringing for an Altec 811 or 511 horn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimmy Great for sealing up Electrical Conduit run from Basement to Garage.
This is just what I needed. There was a conduit that runs between my basement cinderblocks and garage to run electrical wire. The previous owner ran it. But I guess due to the spacers between the concrete deteriorating there was water getting into my basement when it would rain. I quickly identified this issue and used this to seal the area around the electrical wire going into the PVC conduit. It worked like a charm. No more leaks. When the weather gets warmer I will apply the 1/2 inch backer rod between the cement blocks and Polyurethane Construction Adhesive Sealant (Gray) to prevent water from re-entry into the ground beneath the concrete in my back patio leading to the garage.

Duct seal is an incredibly useful and stupid-proof product, but has more outside the box uses. Duct seal is also known as ballistic putty and is frequently used in overpriced "silent targets" for airguns. Using some bricks and a plywood box, you can make a silent BB/pellet trap for a fraction of the cost of a retailer version. Although it will need to be cleaned after quite a few hundred shots, it will be worth the silent shooting. Just remember to always use a proper backboard capable of stopping any missed shots without causing damage to your surroundings. The putty will also contain the lead dust from harder-hitting airguns loaded with lead pellets, making a safer target if children or pets are present. It can also be used to mount various devices to other surfaces such as fish finders and GPS units to vehicles, but it is not recommended that you use this with more expensive smart devices, for those it is safer to get the proper mounting equipment. The last use for this product I will cover is not recommended, but the bricks do look surprisingly like C-4 plastic explosive, so for all you Counter-Strike fans out there looking to do some role-play, pick up a few bricks, some wire and a keypad to make a disturbingly realistic replica of a demolition charge. Remember this is not recommended and can get you in serious trouble with the authorities if used irresponsibly. Overall, an excellent product that should be kept around the house just in case you need to seal up some ductwork or your airgun trap. Would highly recommend.

Didn't use the product as intended on ductwork, but it makes a great backstop for a BB/pellet gun target. Made a plywood box (with proper backstop), screwed a paper clamp to the top front edge and fit the duct seal compound in the back of the box, 2" thick. No ricochet, no noise and the ammo never goes more than halfway through the compound. At some point I'll have to remove the blocks and turn them around but that will be several hundred rounds in the future. Cheap and easy indoor target trap! Great product for this alternative use!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Boris Very easy to use and works great.
Got this seal to plug some holes in the old tar-type sealer in the ducts around the furnace/AC. It is very sticky and pliable, so it was easy to apply even around the old seals. Tested with running the AC fan, and no air was leaking. I also use it to plug the hole in the outside wall where the condenser pipes are going into the house. It was easy, but I am wondering how this product will stand up to exposure to moisture, rain, snow etc.

I used the duct seal to make a target backstop for a pellet gun. The dense seal is perfect for it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sparkyboy Electricians use Duct Seal on outside meters.
I bought duct seal to replace deteriorated material at the connector where the service entrance cable enters the meter channel. It was pliable and easy to form around the wire. If you see water coming into your electrical panel when it rains there's a chance it could be dried out duct seal.
