Product Overview

  • Air-sealing and insulating saves up to 20% on home energy costs
  • A quick, simple way to create an airtight, water-resistant seal
  • 16 oz. Gaps and Cracks Insulating Foam Sealant
GREAT STUFF Gaps and Cracks is a polyurethane-based insulating foam sealant that fills, air-seals and insulates small gaps (up to 1 in.) inside or out. But you probably guessed as much from the name. What you might not have guessed is how easy it is to use, thanks to the straw applicator, or how it expands to take the shape of cracks and voids to form a durable, airtight and water-resistant bond that eliminates unwanted airflow and helps reduce condensation.

Questions & Answers

can this product be used to seal around an electric dryer vent?

I am concerned about the temperature and possible flamability
Asked by: bf24
I used it about 14 years ago to seal up around my gas dryer vent. Just last month while remodeling the basement, I had to chip the old Great Stuff from around the vent in order to re-align the elbow for the new drier location. It wasn't super hard to remove the foam, but it took some work and I was impressed with how well it had held up over the years. Once the dryer and the new vent piping was in place, I used two cans to seal up around it and lock the elbow and joint into position.

Is this the correct product to fill in stucco cracks?

Asked by: Cajy
No. Use a good quality stucco patch made by Rapid Set, available at Home Depot. I've done it myself. You can watch a good demo of this on You Tube.

Is the foam yellow or white? I'm looking to use it for a craft project :)

Asked by: MikesWife
Try DAP expanding if you are looking for white BUT it doesn't add up to quality of Great Stuff.

Can I use expanding foam to fill gaps in brick work under bog stone on a chimney?

Will the heat from the chimney cause a fire?
Asked by: Lucy
You need something like "Refractory Ceramic Fiber Moldable Sealer". Try Googling that term and see if you can find it locally; otherwise, you might be able to purchase on the Internet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Must Use Whole Can First Time - WASTES PRODUCT The cured product is great stuff. The application and management of the product is POOR. You must use the whole can the first time...you CANNOT REUSE A PARTIALLY USED CAN. So, how many times are you going to need exactly one can of product??? Even with first use, when you get down to about 25% of product left, it crawls slowly out of the can. Until they can fix the application problems, or they lower the price 25% I would not buy it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from You don't get a whole can worth I've used Great Stuff for many years and loved it. i just bought another house and I'm in the process of sealing it up. I've bought about 10 cans in the past 2 weeks, and not one of them have dispensed the entire content. It will run out of propellant before all the foam is used. Hope this is just a bad run from the factory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just clean out the tube for multiple use I've been working over many months on various house issues and have used this same can of sealant multiple times - from large voids around 4" drains to small ones around electrical runs. Wear eye protection if you plan to clean out the tube, and use very low (5 psi) pressure and blow out the tube, a long, wooden Q-tip, and some denatured alcohol. Haven't had any problem with clogging. Also clean out the nipple on the can. These cans are not that expensive anyway but I'm scrappy. And on larger jobs where I've blown through multiple cans, they have all worked well. It's easy to overfill voids especially when you can't see the other side so have patience with the expansion. And large voids fill fine - just pause for a few seconds and be light on the touch, and it will all stick together. Wear disposable gloves and have some paper towels with you just in case.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Make it a big job, because you can't use it a second time Once you start using this stuff, it just keeps on coming, so don't plan on taking a break for lunch or finishing the job tomorrow using the same can. Also don't even think about getting it on your hands, clothes, finish work or anything you don't want to wear it forever. Clean up is difficult to impossible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great Great Stuff works well. I would suggest that users read the fan's directions prior to purchasing or using it. The manufacturer should consider producing smaller cans, say 6-8oz cans. (Not sure how cost effective this would be for the company to provide the consumer with this option). Having purchased the product several times for small projects it has been a waste of money and the can's contents for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor delivery system Can only use one time. Due to the delivery system design it clogs no matter what you try to do. - Leave product in tube and cut for next use = does not work next time - Take off clear handle/hose and spray clean with brake cleaner and shoot compressed air to really clean out = does not work next time Ends up being a huge waste of money unless you intend to utilize the entire product right when it is first used. The company needs to talk with the can vendor or if Dow is also making the can they need to re-design! Will find alternative products to use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from short shelf life Great stuff Gaps & Cracks has a very short shelf life. The can I bought would not spray foam at all. Money down the toilet. Will not buy a Dow product again.
