Can I nail through the foam after its expanded and shaved to fit?

Asked by Nick September 25, 2020

Answers

Yes you can nail through the foam once it's set up. It takes a several hours for the foam to fully cure so you may want to wait 24 hours before trimming any excess.

I have an Old Stone House. There is no insulation around the woodwork in the windows. How many 16 oz cans do you think I

Asked by CHRISTOPHER September 4, 2020

Dear Christopher: Great idea to air-seal and insualte the framing and trim around your windows, plus you picked the right version of Great Stuff. The 'Window and Door' variant remains flexible after it cures to avoid cracks as things expand and contract, e.g. around your stone walls and wood windows. The number of cans you will need depends on the cubic inches you need to fill. The team at Fine Homebuilding ran a test a few years ago -- here are their results plus some tips: (1) Standard cans with the straw applicator produce 36 cubic inches per ounce. With a 16 ounce can this equals 576 cubic inches or 1/3 cubic feet. (2) The larger 'pro' cans that are used with a gun instead of a straw increase the yield by 33%. A 'Pro gun' also makes application much easier compared to the small straw on the consumer cans. (Pro cans and guns are available at Home Depot, in addition to consumer cans with the straw.) (3) Great Stuff is a one-component foam that uses moisture in the air to cure. If you spritz the foam with a little water after you apply it, you can boost the volume by 73% (gun) to 92% (straw). This also improves the density of the cured foam and accelerates the curing process. (4) Results with a spritz of water, 'Pro' cans with the gun will yield 83 cubic inches per ounce, and the straw cans yield 69 cubic inches per ounce. With a 24 ounce can and a gun, this equals 1,992 cubic inches or 1.15 cubic feet. With a 16 ounce can and a straw, this equals 1,104 cubic inches or .64 cubic feet (5) To fill a larger hole, apply one layer of foam, spritz it with water and let it cure. Then repeat the process. Do not try to fill a large hole or gap in one go; the foam will not cure properly. (6) Cured Great Stuff foam is very flammable (including the 'Fireblock' version) and will ignite at just 240 degrees F. This is significantly lower than the ignition temp for wood. Do not install it near anything that might get hot. Large areas in a home, garage, basement or storage area must be covered by an approved thermal barrier, e.g. 1/2" drywall. (7) Great Stuff sticks tenaciously to everything, including painted surfaces, carpet, your hair and hands, etc. No standard solvent will dissolve it; you have to let it cure, then scrap, sand or scrub it off. So wear gloves and eye protection, and tarp off anything nearby when you spray it. I hope this is helpful, Mark

how is this for sealing gaps in window AC?

Asked by AG August 16, 2020

Answers

It would certainly seal those gaps, but this is designed to be a more permanent seal not a temporary seal. So if you want to remove the window unit, you would have quite a project cleaning up the leftover foam . If you are using a window unit in a garage or another location whee you do NOT plan on removing it, I would probably use this product.

Can this be removed if being used for Air Conditioner?

It can, but it is a messy and lengthy process. Much worse than removing "popcorn" ceiling. Any finished surfaces may require sanding and refinishing

Can this be used to seal a half baseball size hole next to a PVC cleanout on an exterior wall with stucco siding?

Asked by Aryadne May 12, 2020

Answers

It could seal such an opening, but you will need to apply in layers. Allow the first layer to expand and solidify, then apply the next. If you attempt to fill a large opening at once, you may fill it, but when it expands you will have a balloon effect, not a flat surface that matches the stucco

Dear Aryadne: No, Great Stuff foam degrades outdoors, particularly if exposed to sunlight. Use stucco patch, e.g. La Habra Model # 3324-00097, Home Depot Internet #205128835, UPC Code # 748727868342, which is available in a range of colors. Or Sika Model # 503333, Home Depot Internet #206508299, UPC Code # 033886088442 Store SKU #1001662092 I hope this is helpful,, Mark

Can you use it on the exterior under the threshold of a sliding door? It says water resistant but is it water proof ?

Asked by Homework April 20, 2020
5
Answers

I'm very confident it is. This stuff doesn't expand (designed so it will not distort window frames, etc.) Because it doesn't expand, make sure you fill the entire void. This will end up with a fairly tough "skin", which for your application, would be best if you do not cut it. The foam under the skin, is an open type foam, so it could retain water. They make another product which is very similar, but it expands. I'm thinking your threshold should be robust enough to withstand the expanding foam, (which should seal better), as long as you don't have to trim it back, and cut the skin.

Will this expand to the point of creating opening and closing issues?

That depends on if you have voids or not. This would be better than caulking to fill voids than caulking would, however, if it is just seams that leak, caulking would be better.

Response from GREAT STUFF & DuPontSeptember 28, 2020
Hi, M35! Thank you for sharing your comments about Great Stuff™ Window and Door Insulating Foam Sealant. We apologize if this product didn't meet your expectations. This product is formulated to cure in a pliable and flexible state, allowing for expansion and contraction with heat and cold. This prevents it from causing bowing problems with your windows and doors. We are unable to see the photo you provided through this forum. The best if used by date is found on the bottom of the can. If it is within shelf life, as with all products purchased through retailers, please return it for an exchange or refund at your point of purchase.

I really like this new straw with the function of stopping the flow. It did allow me to use the can the next day to finish insulating a small area I had missed. Usually, I would have to use a new can on the next day. Much more environmentally friendly. Please keep out of reach of children between uses, this Stuff is no joke. Also, if using around windows and doors, don't over fill, keep the straw moving around the opening.

Great Stuff Indeed!! Fills gaps and cracks perfectly! A great alternative to conventional fiberglass insulation. It remains rigid but pliable and does not bow out the cavity. Definitely wear gloves as you do not want this on your skin. Highly recommended!

Great Stuff works exactly as described. 1 can was the perfect amount to fill the gaps around my 8 ft patio slider. Definitely wear disposable gloves and long sleeves, you don't want this to get on your skin. And gaps bigger than 1/2 inch might be better filled with fiberglass insulation.

Great Stuff window & door type is a "great" product. Easy to use, excess trims off easy and very easy to paint. Home Depot has the larger cans with the red Quick Stop Straw, that is great for keeping any unused foam ready to use again.

Response from DowGreatStuffDecember 17, 2018
Hi JetPro, thanks for the great review! The Quick Stop Straw is designed to prevent drips when moving from one application point to another. It is not intended to be used as a storage tool. Like all one component foams, GREAT STUFF™ is a one-time use product. 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.
Great Stuff!
Sealed a new door with this! It will expand a little bit and dry to a foam. Wear rubber gloves or something to protect your hands.

Hi Rence, thanks for the great review! At a minimum always wear long sleeves, safety glasses or goggles and gloves when applying GREAT STUFF™. Please see the following guidelines for removing GREAT STUFF™ from skin: If the foam has not cured or hardened, use acetone or fingernail polish remover (with acetone) to remove the foam being careful not to spread it. Cleaning very soon after exposure is important and a polyglycol-based skin cleanser or corn oil may be more effective than soap and water. If the foam has hardened, there is no solvent that will remove it. To remove cured foam from skin, carefully use a pumice stone (available at most drugstores) and warm, soapy water. Be careful not to file through the material as the GREAT STUFF™ has bonded with the first layer or so of skin. Apply petroleum jelly or high quality hand lotion to the affected area to accelerate the natural sloughing and exfoliation of the skin. GREAT STUFF™ Insulating Foam Sealant is not harmful, is nontoxic, and it will wear off in time.

We live in Puerto RIco and have a sprayed foam coating on our roof, which acts as both a water repellent and heat insulator. Between normal wear and tear and the recent hurricanes, there were a few places that had come loose from the roof. We were able to cut off the loose pieces and reseal them to the roof with this foam. We also used it to add a protective coating to the bolts and feet of our new solar panels!

Thanks for the five star review, SusanofRG! GREAT STUFF™ generally will not function well as a protective coating when outdoors because of UV light exposure. GREAT STUFF™ Insulating Foam Sealant products are very sensitive to UV light. Exposure to UV light, even indirect sunlight will cause the foam to darken to an orange or reddish brown color in a matter of days or weeks. Constant exposure to direct sunlight will eventually cause the foam to break down and crumble apart. The foam must be painted or coated with a UV resistant coating if used outdoors.
