Dear Lori: This is not the right product to use to fill a small gap between your window sill and drywall. Great Stuff is difficult to apply in a small area, sticks to everything and cannot be cleaned off, and does not sand smooth after it cures. For a gap of ~1/8" or less, use DAP Patch 'N Paint. For a larger gap use patching compound, e.g. 3M Patch Plus Primer Spackling Compound. Using a putty knife, fill the gap and leave a thin layer on top to sand flat. Allow it to dry for a few hours, then sand flat with a fine sanding sponge. Sometimes the patching compoud will shrink when it dries, and a thin second coat is required to achieve a flat surface. Then you're ready to paint. All of the products noted above are sold by Home Depot. I hope this is helpful, Mark
Great Question! The recommended product to use around ornamental fish and plants is our GREAT STUFF™ Pond & Stone Filler, Sealer and Adhesive. This product is specifically designed to help quickly and easily build beautiful water features, this polyurethane foam expands to fill gaps and cracks to help direct water to flow over the rocks in a waterfall, rather than under and in between. Please see the attached web link for more information on our GREAT STUFF™ Pond & Stone: https://www.greatstuff.dupont.com/products/pond-and-stone-foam-sealant.html
Dear Emelson: It sounds like you discovered how tenaciously Great Stuff clings to almost anything. Tarp and tape off everything nearby before you install it -- plus wear gloves and eye protection. No standard solvent will remove cured Great Stuff. The only option is to scrape it off. Wait until it has cured thoroughly. If the location is out doors or exposed to direct sunlight, however, the foam will gradually degrade and can be easily removed in a few months. Sorry there isn't a better answer! Mark
Unfortunately, there is no solvent that will remove cured polyurethane foam. Cured foam must be mechanically removed, which typically means scraping, sanding, or power-washing, however carpeting may be more difficult with these options. Remove as much foam as possible with a dull scraper or utility knife, then try scrubbing any remaining residue with a non-abrasive cleaner, keeping in mind that the fibers of the carpet may be fragile or susceptible to damage.

Don't know spray it one time and it doesn't stop until the can is empty...
Dear Cash: No -- Great Stuff foam is excellent for filling, sealing and insulating larger air gaps, e.g. around windows when they are installed. It expands aggressively and sticks to almost everything, which is good for a sealant foam, but not for finish work. Thanks for including the photo. The gap appears between your cabinet trim and the drywall looks small: roughly 1/8". If so, Patch N/ Paint is a good option. See: Model # 01611, Home Depot Internet #100094504 Store SKU #610488 You can apply it with your finger or a putty knife and press it into the crack. Wait a day, then sand it very lightly, even with the trim and drywall. Patch 'N Paint is white, so you may not need to paint it. Patch 'N Paint is also water based and easy to clean up. In addition to cracks, you can use it to fill small dings, nail / screw holes etc in your drywall. I hope this is helpful, Mark
All GREAT STUFF™ Insulating Foam Sealants will discolor and eventually crumble if exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light. Paint or coat the foam with a latex based paint for best results in outdoor applications. Please contact the manufacturer of the foundation paint that you wish to use to determine compatibility.
It depends upon what is leaking. If it is water or any type of fluid - no. If you are trying to stop an air leak from around a pipe penetration or from around a system exhaust it will bring you joy and happiness as long as the temperature is not too high (I used it around my dryer duct and it lasted for ten years until I had to move the dryer). It won't hold pressure and it will not contain water or any type of fluid.
