Can I use this to seal around rigid foam board (to seal) that I'm installing in the floor joists ...

Asked by FlowJoyce May 31, 2021

We put pink foam board insulation in the exterior wall when we renovated our bathroom a couple years ago. We used Great Stuff pest block to seal around it and make sure there were no air gaps. It didn't have any immediate bad effects on the foam board that we could see and after we put up drywall it still seems to be well air sealed today so it seems like it worked fine.

Well this cause expanding issues and deform the frames around doors and windows?

There is another variety of Great Stuff specifically designed for doors and windows so that it does not expand hard enough to push your frame out of alignment. It doesn't specifically say the pest block will cause a problem, but if they have another variety designed so that it will not warp your frame, I assume that pest block or one of the other varieties could possibly warp your door or window frame.

Can I use this foam to fill the hollow in the tree ?

Would probably work. Might take a lot of product. Could be toxic to the tree or birds that might peck at it. I'd probably look for another more natural solution.

Hey there Raven, As with all spray in foam sealers, they are very flammable !! the gas in the can and vapors can burn. Now there is also a Fireblock type of sealant that will impedes the spread of smoke and Fire, and it takes the heat better then other types. Mouse

Answers

Why would you remove this nozzle? You might cover everything, including yourself, in the most sticky (and I do mean STICKY) mess. If you do remove the nozzle, please post the results on one of the media outlets on the internet. Practice with a small area first, then learn how far you can throw the can while cursing.

mice ate right through
I had high expectations and the application was simple. Unfortunately it only took 2 days for a mouse to chew a hole through this foam.

We are sorry to hear that our products did not work according to your expectations.
Great Stuff™ Pestblock Insulating Foam Sealant is a barrier to stop pests from having immediate access. It is not intended to deter rodents.
The following steps may further assist in creating that barrier:
1. Fill the gap with Great Stuff™ Pestblock
2. Apply a small screen or steel wool over the uncured Great Stuff™ Pestblock
3. Once first layer is cured, apply another layer of Great Stuff™ Pestblock

No way to control out put, over fills cracks and holes. Left over can't be used cause product solidify s in the spout. No way to smooth it out so that it looks neat. Check pics out. It does seal well
by Pablo
Response from DowGreatStuffNov 28, 2018
Hi Pablo, please see the follow recommendations for your next GREAT STUFF™ application for a better experience: Fill openings approximately 50% full; the foam will expand to fill the space. GREAT STUFF™ Insulating Foam Sealant will seal itself shut if left sitting after use. Inserting a pipe cleaner sprayed with oil lubricant or a nail coated in petroleum jelly into the applicator straw may prolong the life of the product up to 30 days, however, it's better to plan ahead, identify and list all possible applications before using the can. You will need to cut off the yellow tip of the Quick Stop Straw to place the pipe cleaner or nail into the straw. Cured foam (wait at least 8 hours) can be trimmed, shaped, sanded, painted or stained. To trim, use a sharp knife or serrated blade.

Doesn't work as advertised as Rodents chew right threw it. They make quite a mess of it as if they actually enjoy chewing on it. Would not recommend for anything other then just as an overpriced foam sealant.

I have been using this product over the past 6 months as we have been involved in renovating a garage into an office and a storage area. The features that I like include: coverage; short curing time so that we can continue on working without a long delay; ability to remove cured spots that are in incorrect areas fairly easily and it cleans up from floor and walls well. It has worked extremely well for us to date and keeps out rain as well as insects - it works well behind the insulation we are using in this remodeled space. Items that I do not like as well: - foam sticks to skin and clothing (if not wearing gloves or area is uncovered) - In the case of my sibling who is helping and has very sensitive skin, the skin actually peeled off when she got some of it on her skin when I handed her a cloth to throw away - and it takes several days or longer to remove from skin and does not come off clothing at all even when washed immediately with soap and water as recommended. (NOTE: I do wear gloves most of time when using the item.) - The newer cans I recently purchased have a new spout design which does not seem to work better - foam comes out bottom of spigot and is no more easily controlled for extra spray - I need to keep wiping off spout area and throwing away the cloth so that it is not more of a mess Does it meet your expectations? YES - It covers open spaces between studs and other areas so that insects and other pests do not enter the area we are remodeling.

Carpenter bees
Maybe it's good for ants or little spiders but not good for carpenter bees. I have some really annoying carpenter bees boring holes into my rake board. I called an exterminator and he wanted $600 to stuff the void with a mesh after spraying. It sounded like too much just to stuff, so I went with this. Not only did it not work but it ruined my siding. Now I have to spend money to have the rake boards replaced as well as some pieces of my siding. $600 doesn't sound too bad now. I guess I can recommend this for other types of pests. Can't if it would work for them. Good luck.

No question, the best stuff to close up holes made by rodents
Worked great, use gloves for sure because this stuff is really sticky. Really happy that the house no longer has rodents!

Obviously mice aren't considered a pest
I put this up behind the rafters in my cabin and the mice have chewed/scratched through 2 feet of the stuff to set up shop. Good insulator only a mild deterrent to rodents.

Pestblock foam sealant
Purchased Pestblock foam sealant to fill deep gaps between brick face and window tops, fascia boards, and edging. I recommend wearing gloves of some sort because the product is sticky; we wore disposable vinyl gloves and changed them out as we needed. Follow directions exactly. The foam expands when applied but also continues to expand for a good few minutes more as you fill other gaps. If you don't want the rounded front of the expanded foam, it can be gently pushed down after it has time to set. Foam is yellow-gold color when dry. We intend to paint the dried foam white to match the boards. Photo shows approximately a 1.5 inch high by 2.5 inch wide by 1.5 inch deep gap filled with Pestblock, patted down flush with brick and before painting. Has been installed over a month with no degradation or change in look.
