Product Overview

A good percentage of a home or buildings heat loss is directly attributed to air infiltration. A significant part of this loss can be prevented by using FoamSealR, Owens Cornings sill plate gasket, to fill the gap between the sill plate and foundation wall for a tight, uniform fit. As polyethylene foam, FoamSealR is durable and moisture-resistant so it will remain intact for years of energy-saving performance. FoamSealR is available in convenient rolls in 3-1/2 in., 5-1/2 in. and 7-1/2 in. widths to fit most standard frame construction.
  • Dimensions: 5-1/2 in. x 1/4 in. x 50 ft. (8-rolls per bag)
  • Application: sill plate
  • Is easy to install with no need for special tools
  • Reduces air infiltration along the sill plate
  • Provides superior moisture resistance vs. unsealed sill plates
  • Helps seal out insects

Does the "ridge side" or the "smooth side" lie against the foundation?

Asked by ed July 31, 2018
4
Answers

The instructions read, "ridged side toward roughest surface." Typically, this product is used laid horizontally (across) between the top of a concrete (or similar) foundation and a wood frame (the foundation and frame, collectively, are referred to as the "sill"). Since most store-bought, pre-cut, lumber (e.g., 2-by-4's) are smoother than poured concrete, you would lay the ridged side down atop the foundation, while the smooth side would rest against the smoother wood. The ridges act as "dams" to block water, soil, insects, etc, so, naturally, you want them where the terrain is roughest/bumpiest/etc, whereas putting the smooth side against the rough side would leave gaps that may allow water, soil, insects, etc. If both surfaces feel smooth or if in doubt, put the ridge side down. Some sills have two layers of lumber on top of the foundation; it's "okay" to put this gasket between the lumber, but, it, typically, isn't done. So, it isn't a matter of which surface to lay the gasket against; it's a matter of which surface is roughest. Easy to remember: ridge-to-rough.

Are the ridges up or down? My question is that which side is up. My roll of gasket came without a...

Can I use this to insulate my garage?

Asked by Kxtie March 3, 2016

No, this is not insulation (even though HD seems to have it in that category). It prevents air leakage which may save on heating/cooling, and prevents moisture from migrating into your framing from the foundation.

That is exactly how I used it for my shed. I placed it under the pt lumber against the concrete slab to prevent moisture from coming in under the plate.

Can I use foam sealer such as great stuff to use as an adhesive for this product? I plan to use it in my attic to seal the wall penetrations

Asked by LionsFan March 1, 2018
3
Answers

To my knowledge, This is not an acceptable fire barrier to seal your top plate penetrations. I would suggest using the the "Great Stuff Fire Block" to steal those penetrations. This foam seal would not provide any use for you. The "great stuff" is expanding so an attempt at placing this on would not turn out like you hoped. This foam seal is used on the BOTTOM of your walls between the concrete and bottom plate to help seal it from pest and moisture intrusion. Using this on top would not provide any benefit that I can imagine.

does it work as a thermal break?

Yes, it is closed cell foam. Used between sill and footings or door sills.

can this product reduce sound or noise

Asked by hdman July 2, 2013
3
Answers

I would imagine little to not at all. It's <1/4" thick and is designed to be compressed between the sill plate and foundation to fill gaps formed by uneven boards and rough concrete.

Does this foam meet the building codes for moisture resistance for sills in contact with concrete?

Asked by Snow April 24, 2016
3
Answers

It depends on what materials are used and their purpose. Most residential, 2-4 story, construction zoning laws and codes, require something to be placed between concrete foundations and wood frames, or similar materials, while a foundation for a separate shed wouldn't. That "something" can be an adhesive, caulk, or something like this product or a vapor-type barrier. Commercial requirements are quite different, since their foundations, typically, have heavier loads, and simple adhesives or other barriers would be pointless. For the best answer, consult your local town hall, co-op/condo association, etc.

The only PT item should be the 2 x 6 sill plate itself.

We actually used it to pad a table. The table base is a large spool and we cut a 60" top out of plywood. We stapled this down to prevent splinters and add a "cushy" feel.

This was recommended by a Home Depot employee as an outer protective packing wrap for shipping heavy items. It works great and has nice rigidity and cushion! I'm going to use it again to wrap, package and ship all types of items! See photos!

I recently purchased a portable air conditioner and there was a significant gap that released hot air back into the room I was trying to cool. This product along with some pink insulation protected my window sill from the rain and heat exchange into my room. It was easy to install for my needs and can be easily removed if needed.

Easy enough stuff to work with, but be advised, the "50 ft" is approximate. I wound up with 3 rolls that were 48'-49'6". wound up having to go back to the store when I was 6" short on the job.

I purchased this to wrap around iron fence that I was delivering to a jobsite in order to keep it from getting scratched. It worked fantastically. This product is obviously not intended for this use but it worked wonderfully. I would use it again.
