How much does this product expand? Need to fill a gap that varies from 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch where the cedar siding is not flush against the brick. Do not want the Great stuff to show against the brick.
Asked by: met
Hi met, we recommend you fill openings approximately 50% full, the foam will expand to fill the space. Overfilling can buckle materials. Under ideal conditions the foam will be tack-free in 5 to 15 minutes, able to be timed in an hour and will be fully cured in 8 hours, temperature and humidity will affect these times. Cured foam can be trimmed, shaped, sanded, painted or stained. To trim, use a sharp knife or serrated blade. Our GREAT STUFF™ Gaps & Cracks can expand up to 1".

Can this be used to seal a gap surrounding cpvc pipes coming up under the house into the cabinets under the kitchen sink

This gap surrounding the pipes between the pipe and cupboard is allowing rodents into my home.
Asked by: Dino
GREAT STUFF™ has no known compatibility issues with CPVC piping or connections. As shown in the compatibility testing completed by SPFA (Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance) and major suppliers of CPVC materials there is no chemical/physical impact to the performance and longevity of CPVC piping and connections when in contact with spray polyurethane foams Including open-cell SPF, closed-cell SPF, one-component foam sealants, and foams made from natural-oil based materials. Details of this study can be obtained by contacting SPFA at (800) 523-6154. If GREAT STUFF™ is applied as per manufacturer’s directions there should be no issues with compatibility to CPVC piping.

I have a big long continuous crack in my garage floor would this work good for filling it?
Asked by: grandwazoo
This product holds no structural value at all when determining whether it can fill this void. It is advertised and should only be used as an air sealant. It will fill the crack in the floor but will not do much for you besides that.

Last year I had a few break. This year not one broke. Seems I have just about rebuilt my place with this stuff. Not only does it insulate walls, it will make an old weak wall solid and strong again! I am an old DIY lady and happy with Great Stuff!

Never liked the stuff, no pun intended, it's messy and expands too much if you don't know exactly what you are doing, then it's a pain to trim off. Sometimes the trigger and tube don't attach right and leak making the can useless, but is there another brand out there?

Expanding foam is an excellent "glue" for fabricating environmental enclosures from EPS (will everyone know what EPS is, man?) and other foam boards. The foam is handy as a back-fill for puncture wounds in drywall, as insulation, sealing gaps around pipes, and spaces in jambs. I always wear latex gloves and plan my use carefully so I can hit as many projects as possible with one can. Forget the new poorly engineered straw thing. The old fat straw worked fine. After use, unscrew the nozzle and immediately rinse with acetone, dribble a bit into the stem and blow clean. This has worked for reuse many times. Why the low rating? I really get bent when I spend money on a can of this stuff, use a bit, and then come back in a week or a month and find the propellant has escaped. I'm sitting here with a can that feels 2/3 full, and it's going to the trash. Listen up DOW Chemical Co. (manufacturer) and Home Depot (retailer): Offer a smaller can as an option. If I'm going to have to throw away the unused product, less material will end up in the landfill or HazMat collection center. I have grown weary of wasting my time and money on wasted materials.

Cleanup is with acetone and the can has to be used upside down or only the propellant comes out, making it nearly unusable in a situation such as sealing the top of rim joists where the subfloor makes it difficult to get the can above the nozzle, especially where a duct runs down the joist cavity. It's also difficult to get the right flow out of the nozzle because the trigger is very sensitive -- too little pressure and nothing comes out and too much and it goes everywhere. I'd recommend DapTex Plus instead. It's more expensive, but it's so much easier to use it's worth the extra money. Cleanup is with water, you can use it right-side-up, and the trigger is less fussy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff Usage Tips In the past 6 months, I have purchased at least 2 cases of this foam. The expansive and sealing properties of this foam are incredible. I've used it to seal up drafty holes in the house, around leaky air ducts and inside new walls to keep moisture and insects on the outside. I've learned a lot about this foam and have some tricks I hope you can use. ALWAYS shake the can well the first time. The foam really does tend to settle in the can and needs to be remixed for best consistency. Make sure the trigger is tightly secured. I even check it from time to time as I use it. Be light on the trigger, especially the first time. There is a lot of pressure in that can and it the foam will escape faster than you'd probably like it too if you squeeze too hard. Try not to let the foam weigh itself down. It will start to drip and fall if you get too much in one section. That's when things get messy. If you have to, wait for it to start setting up a bit and then spray some more to fill in the remaining gaps. Get the nozzle as deep into the crack as you can. That way the foam really fills up the void from the inside out. Once dry, the foam can be cut easily with a sharp knife or razor blade. I have used it as a backing for caulk or even putty before and then sanded and painted over it. If you don't use the whole can, clean out the nozzle and store it. It can be re-used later.

Great value for the 16 ounce can, bigger than the cans I have seen elsewhere. The quick stop straw is sturdier than the plain plastic straws, but the stopper on the end can inadvertently close if you are poking the straw into a confined space. The foam sealant works great for sealing up small cracks or openings. It really makes a difference when it gets cold out and helps to keep bugs outside. I used the entire can in one setting, so I can't comment on how easy it is to save a partial can for later use.

If you spray too much, it will expand and overflow. It fills about 90% of the gap itself. It is okay to get a little overexpansion though, you can easily cut it with a knife when it's dry. Another reason to be careful... don't get it on your clothing or self, it has amazing stick power. I had a little bit on a work shirt and it lasted many many washes. The one thing I dislike about this spray foam and others is that once you start spraying, you pretty much have to use the can or its unusable later. The foam dries in the nozzle and wont work again. I cant figure out how to clean the nozzle and this is probably why I see stolen nozzles off cans at the stores. The only trick I have found is tightly placing tape over the end. That way, I can finish the can within the next day or so but not for long-term storage.

It is a great product but expect flaking at @ 10 years. If exposed to the elements, expect less than 10 years. So there will be the need to check on the integrity each decade. Used to seal all the seams in the ceiling, conduit bore holes, ceiling light fixture mounts and pipe holes. House now has a reduced furnace run time during the cold season.
